    Verified Purchase

    The Olympus VN-5000 Digital Voice Recorder (refurbished) works well. In that it is hard to find voice recorders these days I used it for college to do interviews. It even recorded soft voices which was very helpful. It was easy to use. It worked well. I would recommend it to other people in need of recording an interview etc. I was at first uncertain in that it is refurbished however it worked as well as a new one. I will recommend this product to other college friends. It will come in handy to record lectures for sure.

  • Good Value
    Verified Purchase

    Although refurbished, looks brand new! If you want to record memos to yourself--the phone number of the shop you are passing, things to do later, etc.--this is a good product at a good price. Easy to setup and use. Note, does not interface with a PC. If you want that feature, you have to spend about $10 more and get the more advanced recorder. I carry it with me instead of a small notebook as it can be used with just one hand!
