Simple, inexpensive but effective 'first' DVR
 
I thought I wanted a voice recorder a long time ago, while a student but I never actually bought one. If I remember correctly, I was deterred, back then, by the apparent mechanical complexity of the device, its using non-standard recording media - mini cassettes - the need to feed it batteries and its overall lack of versatility. I believe they used to be expensive too.This is my first and voice recorder and it seems to address most of my issues back then. The Olympus VN-5000 DVR's notable featu...

No bells and whistles, but who needs them
 
Back to basics. This Olympus DVR works just fine for recording mock therapy sessions in my psychology class. It's easy to use. The sound reproduction is clear. It has a long battery life.I'm not a technie or a teenager. So navigating digital equipment isn't organic to me. I need instructions. The more cookbook-like, the better. Before I bought this model, I considered purchasing a similarly priced Sony model because after all I had a number of other Sony products in my audio visual stabl...

good performance/poor design
 
I have owned three or four digital voice recorders over the years and don't have high demands. I mostly use it to record reminders while commuting. This one performs well enough (good voice clarity), however the design is very poor: 1.the record button is not recessed so it regularly starts recording when in my pocket; 2. recording requires pressing two different buttons, one to record and another to stop recording; 3. erasing a message is a three step process that requires pressing three differ...

Good Product Design
 
This digital voice recorder has a good design and easy to use. I found it very simple and did exactly what I wanted it to do. I record different stuff for my website [...] The only drawback is that the built in speaker is not very loud and and the batteries that came with it were weak. I gave this five stars because if you use earphones you can hear it as loud as you want. It was worth the money I paid.

Amazing tool for implementing a GTD system
 
It's the first recording device I ever owned and I'm extremely happy with this purchase.WHY BUY SUCH A THING: 1. if you have watched THE SIXTH SENSE, you should have remembered that Dr. Malcolm Crowe used such a device to record down any thoughts he had after he met his patients. IMHO, since most of my inventive ideas pop into my mind when it's most inconvenient for me to take notes of such fleeting thoughts, a recorder is by far the best device for taking them down. Even if most cellphones...

NO USB CABLE!!
 
I bought this product in a rush and because this product was among the bestseller list.. what they failed to note here is: YOU CAN'T BACK UP YOUR DATA because there is no USB cable connection... how sad is that??? In such a modern era, why would anyone create a device that they can't back up?? Obviously this is not a product for a reporter.. are they expect us to store our recording in this device only? Doesn't make sense right..?

Small and Efficient
 
This voice recorder is small and of good value. It has a long recording time and the sound quality is pretty good too. It's great for personal and home use.

digital?
 
I never dreamed that they might make a digital recorder without the ability to download the information to ones computer. Really, what is the point? I'm very dissappointed.
