Handy, easy to use.


The small size and padded pouch make the recorder convenient to carry around. It is simple to operate. I use it for taking audio notes, instead of using a small notebook. The microphone seems to overload easily if you speak too loudly into it or if the...

OLYMPUS VN-6200PC USB PC Interface Digital Voice Recorder


I did some tests before I did some recording for work and the playback was really good and clear through the recorder. I needed to record a webinar from a work phone's external speaker that was over an hour long and the finished file sounded very good...

Small and lightweight; simple layout and easy to use; holds a lot of recorded data. If you can use a cell phone you can use this recorder

No real on/off switch. It would have been nice if the case was larger so it could also hold the USB cable and maybe an extra set of batteries. The recorded file format is WMA which you will need an extra program for your PC if you want to edit the...
