Great for classes
 
I use this recorder for classes and I am happy that I made the purchase. Being able to now convert all the sound files to my computer and then to CD helps out immensly and I can now even sell the lectures that others have missed. This works out for the people who would rather write their own notes vs. copying someone else's often incomplete notes.The LP quality on the recorder is the worst I have ever recorded under and I learned the lesson quickly (this quality was sufficient on the...

Why didn't they have these when I went to college?!?
 
One of my daughter's professors encouraged students to record lectures due to difficulty of the class material. We therefore needed a recorder asap. Settled on this concept (digital with pc link) and ultimately chose this brand/model over a competitors. I felt compelled to write a review because of the low rating this shows, even though most were for the sale, not the item. We ultimately chose this item because of one feature: the ability to speed up or slow down playback speed while...

DON'T BELIEVE THE NAY SAYERS
 
Olympus VN-4100-PC 256MB PC Digital Voice RecorderI've used several different brands and models of digital voice recorders and for the money this one can not be beat. The mic is very sensitive and the play back is top quality. Some bemoan the fact that it doesn't record music very well...hello...it's a VOICE recorder. I have no problem with the software that came with the unit either. It's fast and easy to transfer audio files to my pc running Vista Premium. As for those that received a st...

Excellent Investment
 
Before buying this digital voice recorder, I was a little skeptical because of the not-so-high average rating on here. However, I must say that this thing works great. It does what it's supposed to do with no problems. The Extra High Quality recording option is great. The only 2 slight minuses are 1) it takes a few minutes to transfer a 50minute file onto the computer, but if you're not in a rush, then there's nothing to worry about, and 2) for some reason, after transferring the files, they won...

An excellent value
 
The Olympus VN-4100PC is an excellent value. It's perfect for tasks such as recording a lecture or meeting, making verbal to-do lists, practicing a speech or presentation, and so on. Some reviewers criticize it because it's not very good at recording music, and the play-back is monaural, and they're right. It's not really designed for professional-style, stereo recording. As is the case with all machines, you have to live within its design limits.The VN-4100PC has some very nice ...

Pitiful software.
 
First of all, the hardware itself is brilliant. The sound quality (in extra-high quality mode) is quite nice, the user interface is well-thought-out, and it is a pleasure to use.However, the problems occur when you try to connect this thing to your computer (if you don't need to do this, buy the non-"PC" version and save yourself the money). First of all, there is absolutely no Linux support. Of course, this is not surprising, but it would have been nice (and saved me some headach...

if upgrading, be careful
 
I've owned previous versions of these Olympus voice recorders, for example, the VN-240PC. I wanted the latest model so I could get more recording capacity. Two problems with the VN-4100PC:1. It lacks a pocket clip. Previous versions had this. The pocket clip prevents the voice recorder from sliding around in one's pocket and preventing that sliding-around noise from getting picked up by the recorder when you move around, walking around giving a presentation, etc. Not to mention ...

Playback Controls Details
 
The purpose of this review is to let readers know about how the "fast forward" and "rewind" functions work on this unit (I found that sufficient detail was lacking in the product descriptions and even the instructions that came with the product).The large ring you see on the front of the product allows you to initiate fast forward / skip forward and rewind / skip back. Pressing the right side of the ring starts fast forward (FF). As you press and hold FF, nothing happens for 1 seco...

Decent but...
 
One thing to be aware of that I didn't see in the other reviews is that the headphone(s) output is monaural, so if you are listening on headphones you'll only hear it in one ear. I'm a guitarist and I'll use this to easily record ideas. On the extra high quality (EHQ) setting the sound is OK but I would of liked a little less recording hiss. I did a test recording comparing the built-in mic and a plug-in Sony stereo mic and could not tell a difference. Of course it doesn't record in stereo.

Solid voice recorder, does not work with OSX, not plug and play/drag and drop
 
Solid voice recorder. does what it needs to with good enough quality. however, you can only transfer audio files with bundled software. would be 4 stars if it showed up as a flash drive when connected in which you could drag and drop folders to your hard drive to import. Also software isnt compatible with OSX which is something that is no longer acceptable with the growing popularity of macs. Folder set up is also a little confusing
