Great but be carefull for what you buy
 
I bought the "Olympus VN-240" thinking I could hook it up to my PC, but the model I really needed was the "Olympus VN-240 PC". I wish they made it more clear that the VN-240 was not pc compatible,I read a review for the VN-240 saying it was connectable to a pc so i went out and bought a VN-240 accidentally instead of "VN-240 PC". Just letting other people know so they don't make the same mistake thinking that all VN-240s are the same, THEYRE NOT!

Does exactly what is says it will do.
 
This is an easy to use device, despite what another reviewer wrote. It takes about one hour to master all its features, and then it is simple to use. I use it to record the Art Bell show, by placing it near the radio speaker and letting it go the full four hours. There is a bigger memory model, the 480, which will turn itself on, as well. I use the 240 in the "vox" mode, and it starts recording when my clock radio turns on at 10pm. All I have to remember, however, is to turn the radio "on" ...

Neat little device; some problems
 
I give this 3.5 stars.This is a very innovative recording device, with many unexpected amenities. It has 3 main folders (A,B,C), with a 4th "calendar" (S) that has 10 subfolders for each month. Pefect for keeping business notes on A, grocery list on B, etc.The record quality is terrific, playback is great, and the mic & earphone jacks are excellent. I have a voice record function on my MP3 player, but this works much better. And I believe the 32 meg unit will record over ...

Exquisite!
 
Replaced an older Panasonic micro-cassette tape recorder with this unit.This records clearly, and at a good volume -- I'm just sorry it only has 1 hour and 28 minutes capability... I'm thinking of buying a second so I can swap them out to keep recording for longer.Seems to have long battery life; and I only record on the highest quality level...I very much appreciate the "hold" button that prevents it from turning on in my pocket; the buttons are all clear and...

Deleting is easier than claimed
 
I doubted it could be so difficult to delete a message as was claimed in the previous review, and so I looked up the user manual for this recorder. The manual says that the complicated procedure only applies when deleting messages in the "S" folder, which sorts messages by date. To delete messages in the ordinary "A" through "C" folders takes just one button press.

Nice but could be much better
 
I saw a friend taking voice notes on one of these while talking on his cellphone and remembered the hundreds of times I needed to make notes while driving or having ideas I needed to record to work on later. This little thing is too handy not to have especially for a businessman like me. I find an inexpensive Olympus VN 240 Digital Voice Recorder for only $10 more than the 120 version. It is fairly small, about twice the size of a cigarette lighter which is twice what I would have liked but no ...

a real pain to delete messages
 
Olympus really blew it this time!On their previous digital recorder, you pressed the delete button, to delete a message, during or after it played. Now, you can only delete it AFTER it plays, and it requires pressing THREE DIFFERENT BUTTONS to delete one message.I often record and/or review and delete messages while I'm driving. This new deleting method makes it impossible, without taking your eyes off the road. I hope Olympus realizes this was a REALLY BAD IDEA!

Difficulty in transcribing
 
Can someone tell me how to backspace just a sentence or two? When ever I press the back button in the S folder, it goes all the way back to the beginning of the taped meeting. I am trying to transcribe notes from the meeting and want to go back only a sentence or two to repeat what I heard. Can anyone help me with this?

Does what it says it does
 
Not disappointed, but not impressed. The buttons are oddly arranged and it does take a couple of menu selections to delete a clip.I seem to have a clip stored in it somewhere I can't find it, because the residual memory is now very limited.
