Great for people with spontaneous ideas

Pros Very user-friendly. Obviously gone down in price, no longer $100.
Cons Files can be confusing. One delete button for deleting one or all files=scary.
Recommended it? Yes


Very user-friendly. Obviously gone down in price, no longer $100. I personally have never had any issues with the hold button sticking.

Whereas it is often a pro having three separate files to save documents in, it can get confusing and limiting. Sometimes it is... Read full review »

Compact , Convenient but lacks quality on Std/LP

Pros Very compact and convenient. Easy to use.
Cons Std/LP are almost useless for quality. HQ results in short record time but good quality.
Recommended it? Yes

This is a good unit for folks that need a small digital recorder that slips easily into a pocket. Not good for meetings or lectures as the Standard and LP quality is so poor you can't understand a voice more than a few feet away. HQ is great quality but record time is down to just minutes. Great... Read full review »

Pros Brilliant little machine, very portable, lived up to all my expectations
Cons No off switch !
Recommended it? Yes

The reason I bought this is possibly a bit bizarre to the average man in the street, but as a musician I find myself constantly coming up with tunes in my head at the most awkward times - usually when I'm out & about, & in spite of my best efforts to remember the notes, by the time I get home in...

Pros Acceptable quality sound through the speaker. Good quality through headphones.
Cons "Hold" switch doesn't lock sometimes and you lose everything in memory.
Recommended it? Yes

I have been looking for a decent audio quality digital recorder for voice recordings for a while. This is the first recorder that I've tried that I did not return because of the audio quality. On many of the other units listening to recordings through the tiny speaker is so bad that most were... Read full review »

Olympus DW-90 Digital Voice Recorder

I got this one for $99.99 on a gift card from Best Buy, from my friends for my birthday. I had been eye balling the Olympus DW-90 for a while. The USB interface it has was one of the main reasons I bought it. You can't do that with micro cassette... Read full review »
