Summary: At first I really liked the recorder. It worked well for my class lectures. Then it stopped working. I was no longer able to return to the seller and support from Philips is in Austria. Told from seller to work with manufacturer and manufacturer says mail it to Austria and they will see what they can do. It will cost a lot to ship it to Austria which of course I have to pay for. Seller says buy a new one.
Summary: For those who use their voice recorder many. many times each day and have already owned a Philips recorder. Difficult to figure out, counterintuitive (or wrong) button labelling, poorly written manual that doesn't even explain the different screen indicators, absolutely non-existent online support (they send you to "Philips Dictation Solutions, which doesn't have this model), hostile phone support. There is no explanation to be had of what's on the screen.
Summary: SENT BACK~~WHERE"S MY REFUND ? BOUGHT ANOTHER~~SAME MAKE ! SEE MY PURCHASES! WalMart would've been easier~~~I'm learnin ! I don't have 14 more words for you at this writing!! Bug-off you darn pest !
Summary: I have a few recorders and I like the LFH0884 (or LFH882 which I also have) over the Olympus DS-40 because of the following reasons: What's better on the Philips LFH0884: -------------------------------------- a) The Voice Activated recording (pauses when there is no sound) will not cut off like the Olympus does. It will also connect the audible parts better and not leave you the feeling that you missed the first 1/2 second of every segments.
