Great features, but unusable for me, because included software is buggy
 
I'm a long-time user of Olympus voice recorders and the features this one offers are truly impressive. See Sperazza's review for a detailed breakdown. Everything about the hardware seems great. However, in order to play the .DS2 files you create on this device, you need Olympus's proprietary software, which you can ONLY get on the CD that comes with the device (you can't download it from their website -- the website won't even tell you the most current version number). I installed the software o...

Transcription does not have support for the files this creates!!!!!
 
I was just going to post this, and you beat me to the punch...I bought one of these at the urging of the transcription company, which handles 1000 clients, when my DS-2300 died. There is absolutely no support for DS2 files and you have to convert them every time. Transcription IT spent a week working with Olympus and couldn't get it right. I finally returned this device and got a Philips 9370 which makes only DSS files. Dont get this handheld unless every single person you dictate to knows what ...

Easy to use yet powerful pocket-sized voice recorder
 
Summary:The DS-2400 is one of Olympus' newest voice recorders optimized for dictation. It provides the ability to record conversations under a variety of conditions with excellent quality. Its intuitive controls make operation so simple that the 8 (2"x4") page Quick Start Guide is all you'll need to start recording and playing back conversations of all kinds. The included DSS Player software supports both Windows (2000, XP, and Vista - including Vista Ultimate 64-bit) and Macintosh (...

silly change in format
 
I have used Olympus recorders for many years overall they are good machines. But, Olympus often decides to change file formats without consideration of the end user. This is the case with the DS-2400. This new handheld recorder from Olympus uses a new voice file format called DS2. This file format is playable only with the new Olympus software that comes with the Ds-2400. Olympus will not share this software. You must buy a machine to get a player. This is a serious deficiency for users that may...

Case for DS-2400 recorder
 
When I purchased the DS-2400 digital recorder, I also ordered the CS-111 leather case. Turns out the case doesn't fit the recorder, while a leather case that does fit is included in the package. On brief acquaintance, I'm very pleased with the recorder. It works flawlessly with the AS-2400 transcription kit on my MacBook.

Olympus 2400
 
We were disappointed it was not compatible with the 2300. We therefore had to get a new transcription kit with a new foot pedal. One of our transcriptions now has to use two different units.

Duh Stupid
 
I replaced my old DS2200 which finally quit after much hard use. Olympus, in its wisdom, decided that professional digital recorders no longer need a power source other than disposable batteries. How more stupid can they get? I use these recorders, making thousands of audio files for my business. Apparently, Olympus expects business owners to now invest in vast quantities of batteries or to purchase rechargeable ones with chargers. It never occurred to me that I might need to check on ever...

DSS Format Support Now Ofered by Others
 
When my customer bought with a couple of DS-2400s I thought they looked great. When I found that they no longer supported the industry standard DSS file format, I contacted Olympus. They said they could not help me personally but my dealer could upgrade them to support DSS. Unfortunately, my customer's dealer was Amazon and they do not seem to have this capability. I called Amazon support in India? and they seemed to know nothing about this.If you need DSS support, [...] and other ap...

Nice digital recording for transcribing
 
I am a lawyer and have to do a lot of dictation. I have used much more expensive Olympus recorders before, but I tried this one and it works great! I record my dictation and then upload the files over the Internet to the transcribers. It works great.My only complaint is the button functions on the side of the recorder are not really very intuitive as compared to other recorders I have used, but I got used to it. Also, the software the comes with it is not very intuitive, either, ...

Don't buy this for dictation!
 
DS-2400 recorder uses the "new and improved" DS2 format, which in not compatible with the transcription service and is proprietary. You can dictate all you want, but when it comes to digitally uploading and transcribing, you'll be out of luck. I'll be returning mine or donating it somewhere.
