  • Great product
    Verified Purchase

    This recorder has all of the essential features. The most important one is that it has a USB port which you can plug into your computer and transfer the recorded files. Many other recorders do not have this feature, which makes it pretty useless if you need to do anything with the recording after you get it. THIS recorder gets a good quality recording, AND you can use it in multiple ways after you record it! At such a great price, you can't go wrong.

    Although refurbished, this product feels brand new. The recordings are top quality and background noises are minimized for voice recordings. I love the fact that it can be transferred to computer. This was my top priority when looking for a digital voice recorder.

  • Great for the value
    Verified Purchase

    I have not use it extensively but I taped a large meeting once and the sound was clear. I bought it for an extra backup for taking minutes and so far, it is working fine.

  • Instructions any one?
    Verified Purchase

    It was very easy to set the machine's time and date. It was also easy to start and stop recording. However, when the instructions are followed (which repeatedly tells you to press and hold the "scene" key), it doesn't allow you to return to the recording for playback or skip to the end to start the next section. I have not found a way to label individual recordings although, by hit and miss, I have now found the different folders where recordings can be stored. Overall, I am very disappointed with this recorder due to a poorly written instruction sheet. I am not surprised that it was returned to be refurbished since I was thinking about returning it as none of the instructions were working and I thought it was a still a faulty device. I guess I expected more from Olympus.

  • This item is great for business & school lectures
    Verified Purchase

    I would recommend this item to anyone in the business, criminal justice and school lectures to study by at a later time. This item is clear in voice reception. When in the criminal justice field it is great for recording conversations over the phone when using a earphone device to pickup the conversation from the telephone or cell phone.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Is this recorder voice activated?"

    • A:

      Thank you for your question, lacrimal10. No, this is not a voice activated recorder. I hope this helps, and thanks for shopping with us.

  • Q:

    "can rechargeable batteries be charged in the device if connected through USB cable?"

    • A:

      It comes with a single rechargeable AAA alkaline battery that recharges by plugging the device to a computer via USB (as long as the USB port provides power out, which some of the older PC's USB ports do not). It can be directly plugged into your Mac or PC (USB Direct) through a USB connector that slides out of the bottom, so no cables are required.

  • Q:

    "does it have a hold button to prevent unintended button pressing?"

    • A:

      yes it does.

  • Q:

    "Is this mac friendly? Can i download files with the USB on a mac?"

    • A:

      No, it is not compatible with a Mac.

    • A:

      Because this recorder is a Mass Storage Class device, Windows® and Macintosh® operating systems treat it as an external drive. Files can be transferred between the recorder and the computer using standard drag and drop or copy and paste techniques. No additional software is needed to transfer the files.

    • A:

      On Macintosh computers, iTunes requires a free, third-party program in order to play WMA files. This program, Flip4Mac WMV Player (also known as Windows Media Components for QuickTime by Flip4Mac), is recommended by Microsoft. After the program is installed, WMA files can be added to the iTunes Library and played by iTunes."

  • Q:

    "Does this recorder have a time stamp feature?"

    • A:

      Yes, it does. Quoted from the manual: "If you set the time and date beforehand, the information when the file is recorded is automatically stored for each file. "

  • Q:

    "What is the battery life and number of hours stored in internal memory?"

    • A:

      Battery life on microphone is approx. 51 hrs. With speakers is approx. 20 hrs. and with earphone is approx 44 hrs. The max recording time on HQ mode is approx. 26 hrs 40mins. SP mode is approx 53 hrs 40 mins. LP mode is approx 148 hrs 40 mins.
