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

Works well


My seven year old daughter uses this recorder as part of her voice lessons. She has no problem finding her teacher's lesson and her own practice recordings. Built-in speaker can be turned up pretty loud

OLYMPUS VN-6200PC USB PC Interface Digital Voice Recorder


I have not had a chance to test out the Headphone and Microphone jack. The USB cable is on the short side, its fine if you have a laptop but if your USB ports are hard to reach then you will need a longer cable.

I got this to record notes and such. The record and stop buttons are a nice size creating an easy to use device ; The microphone seems to have a good range, its been used it at a distance of 15' with no problems ; 70 hours of record time is more then...

It is a tad awkward to delete your recordings with the device, however one can delete them at a computer with ease
