Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I just needed something basic, but I brought it to a large conference with a few hundred people in the plenum sessions. I sat about midway in the room and turned it on and got very good recordings of each of the speakers. I transferred them to my PC and all is well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic Dictation / Interview Recorder This is a basic recorder, which is good for dictation and interviews, but not much else. It totally fails by not being able to pause/resume during recording. The quality of recording in a lecture hall isn't good. Nevertheless, as long as you realize its limitations and use it accordingly, it's a good recorder. It would also be nice to record in MP3 as well as WMA, or at least have the software provided to convert from WMA to MP3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top line of print too small! Generally, this voice recorder works fine. However. the topmost line of printing is so small to read even with reading glasses. Why can't this line of print be as large as the date/time and YES/NO lines below it? There would seem to be enough room; lots of wasted space. No instructions on how to mass erase. One at a time is time consuming. Needs a pause button; repeating is nice though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from About as much use as a chocolate teapot! What a waste of money! What use is a voice recorder if you cannot pause and restart the recording? Utterly useless from a business point of view. I totally regret purchasing this product as it is not fit for purpose. The only use I can think of is for it to becuse in a student's lecture or by a journalist. For business dictation it is about as much use as a chocolate teapot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recorder saved my case! This is the first time I've written a review on a product. I've had this recorder for a few years now (more than 5). I've used it on a few occasions but never needed to go back for a recording. Until now. If you need a reliable recorder that you can refer back to for a key recording this is the one. It's simple to use, easy to upload recordings and a great value for the price. I am so thankful I have this as I'm now able to defend myself in a court case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for recording phone conversations Works very good for recording phone conversations on a landline. I bought a Olympus digital voice recorder over 10 years ago and decided to upgrade. I'm using the Olympus VN-541PC with a Radio Shack phone adapter that plugs into the microphone jack. It works quite well. It has less background hiss than my old recorder. I also have a more expensive Philips VoiceTracer recorder, but when I use it for recording phone conversations on my landline the volume of my voice is about 3 times louder than the voice of the other person on the line. The Olympus does not have that problem. I do wish that the Olympus would give you some options for the sound quality by selecting higher kbps (kilobits per second) settings. You can only record at 16 kbps or 32 kbps. My old Olympus recorder was 64 kbps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and efficient I love the simplicity of this recorder which meets basic needs. I especially love the physical erase button. I use the recorder for recording musical compositions, which, for me, requires many retakes. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because the volume is lower than I would like, and I would also like it to be backlit.
