      Good product that fails occasionally

      I am a practicing journalist and have used this and many other recorders. On three separate occasions, out of more than 100 uses, the recorder failed to pick up quality audio. I'm nor sure if this is on the recorder's end or the earpiece I wear that picks up the sound waves from my cell phone. Both these products are fairly new to my collection of equipment, though I'd used the earpiece with my prior recorder that I had for more than six years or so, and it didn't fail. I'm not sure I would recommend this product, as I've owned about a half dozen pieces of equipment like this in the past and those never failed, not once.

      Does what it's supposed to

      I have used this little recorder daily for three weeks and so far so good. My only complaint is that it is still too easy to bump into control buttons on the front if you lean over something. Still way better than the Sony I used to have, though. I do wish I had spent a little extra to get the model that recharges when I plug it into my laptop, but that's not the fault of the recorder. It would also be nice if they supplied a neck lanyard to go with it.

      I purchased an Olympus recorder over 12 years ago and just had to replace it. Held up and the quality of the product was exemplary. Tried another brand of recorder but was too complicated to operate and went back to the Olympus brand and could not be happier, especially with the capability of connecting directly to my computer with another cord.

      This recorder is a little bulky but for the price it does what i need it to do. The sound clarity is far better than the old one i had. Can store both audio or other files if you need to use as a memory stick. Easy to use and very dependable. Batteries seem to last longer as well for hours of recording. Great value, Good Choice.

      I feel like the USB feature could have been designed better, or at least a USB extension cord included because it's a lot of weight to have hanging so far out of a port. Speaker volume is tiny as expected. I would also like to have had a moniter function so the sound could be tested prior to starting a record.

      The item has all the options needed in a digital voice recorder. Saves by date so multiple files can be available, long battery life, several record mode options, and able to download to other devices to mention some of the best..

      I like how the USB port is intergrated on the actual product so I don't have to go look for a cable to sync. It's pretty easy to use, but I have accidentally turned it off a few time that I wasn't aware of.
