Great Recorder!

Sparkys_Fan, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great recorder! Has good battery life and will hold lots of files. I get clear low noise recordings and can adjust the record level so the quality is good no matter how loud the source. I can plug the usb into my car and play files through my car speakers. One drawback is that you have to remember to hit the OK button to get it to charge when you plug it into a computer or car. I have not tried to charge it from an outlet yet.

Might be worth a try.

Pat Hunt, Amazon

  • Summary: I tried using this to see if I snore. I hoped that by being sound activated it wouldn't waste a lot of space but it didn't work out. First there was a lot of static or something on the line- not me snoring and it didn't really seem to be sound activated. I'm sure that if I'd bought it for a different purpose it would be more than satisfactory, but it didn't work out for me. I may use it some day for some other reason.

  • Summary: Very simple to use, very clear recording when played back on the computer. Has three modes of recording, wav, pcm and mp3. All work fine and the internal push out USB is great.

  • Summary: The product is very good and very sensible, maby too much when you have some noise around you and you want to record a keynote speaker. But Olympus is still the best!

Night Player

  • Summary: Had some doubts but I bought it with the idea of recording some meetings as my note taking sucks. Put it in my trouser pocket not expecting much. I was able to pick up all of the conversation in the room including the chairs being moved and other sounds. Tried the FM radio and it very well although as it said you have to have earphones/buds as the wire acts as the antenna. Definitely need to read the instruction manual to get the full benefit of all the features.

Radio does not work.

  • Summary: I bought this and paid extra for the FM radio ability.....but it does not work. You may wish to save your money and get the cheaper model. The recorder works fine but did not get what was advertised i.e. FM radio.
