Disapointing sound quality
 
I bought the L400 and 500 recorders, and am disapointed in the sound quality with both. The 500 had a real "tinny" sound, and unsuitable for dictation. The 400 has a loud motor whine on playback (which doesn't happen if I play the same tape back on a Sony recorder), and a similar tinny sound. Olympus recorders seem to be well constructed, compact, and great gadgets. But, the sound quality is inferior, and causes me not to recommend them until Olympus makes this better. My various Sony recor...

Tiny yet loud
 
I bought this as a replacement for a previous Olympus pearlcorder for my father-in-law and he loves it. The Olympus microcassette recorders blow all those cheap recorders in the retail stores.

Actually needs to be a little bigger
 
I ordered this from Amazon, who had the best price on the internet or otherwise. When I received it, I spent several days thinking I might send it back. It has its problems and is a little "too" small for me. However, I've worked through the problems and gotten used to the device and it is pretty good.First, the problems. Someone with real small hands will appreciate it. Others with bigger hands might find it too small. Those used to holding a microcassette recorder a certain way (using th...

Nice old tech recorder.
 
- four stars ONLY because it is old tech - GREAT little (tape) recorder, uses micro-cassette, fits in a uniform pocket pretty well - LOTS of cops used to want these for on-duty carry. Now - get a digital recorder (my daily carry is the size of a thumb drive). This one was used and in GREAT condition - sent quickly and wrapped well. Seller did a good job.
