The main purpose I am using this recorder for is for class lecture recording and audiobook playback (from Audible,) so this review is based on my experience using it against my old Sony ICD-PX720 for these reasons.

The Olympus DM-620 is the first non-Sony recorder that I've purchased, so my experience with other Olympus models is non-existant. The unit itself is compact with a slight heft due to the metal vs plastic construction. I happen to find that more reassuring in a world where just about everything is cased in plastic and has a cheaper construction feel to it.

The screen has a light white/gray/blue (Payne's gray?) back-light which was a bit harder for my eyes to make out when compared to the bright orange-amber back-lights I have seen on other models of recorders. Readability was much greater after adjusting the contrast and brightness settings to a custom setting.

The first thing I noticed about the unit was that it was intuitive, which was something my old Sony recorders were not. Changing the folder on my Sony ICD-PX720 was like pulling teeth, and trying to remember how I did it a few days later was like a revisit to the proverbial dentist. I usually ended up having to dig out the manual to do anything more complicated than turn on, hit record, hit stop. The DM-620 is blissfully easy to navigate.

The DM-620 has small rubber feet on the bottom to keep the recorder from randomly sliding places. They are not sticky and will not prevent it from falling off a steep dash, but it will give a bit more friction when a book bumps into it when moving things around the desk during class.

Verified Purchase
I see higher priced digital recorders, but it's hard to believe they can be much better than this for recording lectures and meetings. The sensitivity is amazing. I recently graduated from cassette tapes and I can't believe how much better this is. Very long recording capability and very long battery life is great. The recorder does a decent job of recording live music with good pickup of the bass. The controls are pretty straight forward, but you should read the directions because it has so many features. The fast forward and reverse are accelerating so they move slowly if you are going just a minute or so away, and the acceleration moves you to an hour away point pretty quickly. I have my music on a micro chip so I can use this to listen to music. You can set it to play a song over and over, the folder of songs over and over or everything over and over - very nice features. Micro chip also gives you huge storage. My computer sees the device as a disk drive so moving lectures from the recorder to my computer is very quick and easy.
My only issue, is that you have to pay attention when using the reverse and fast forward because the buttons are very small. You have to hold down the reverse button, and if you accidentally let go and push it again before you hit play, you will go back to the beginning of your recording, and have to fast forward back to the original point. The digital display tells you where you are on the recording and how long the recording is in total, so look to see where you are before you begin to rewind. This is probably unavoidable due to the compact size of the device.
You can charge this with your computer usb port. I bought an adapter so I can charge it from a wall plug too.
You can vary the speed of playback ... and there are way too many features to describe.

The Olympus DM-620 is a fully featured digital voice recorder. In search of a market! Too fully featured to be called a 'consumer' grade DVR (digital voice recorder) while not full featured enough to be called a 'professional' grade piece of audio gear. Olympus, on their own web site calls it a digital voice recorder / music recorder. Is it a dictation device? Is it a music / concert recording device? Is it a reporting device? Is it a lecture hall recorder? It's all of those and more; truly a jack of all trades and master of none.

As of my writing this (Feb. 2014) there are 47 reviews and they cover the gamut of this device's features, pitfalls and strengths. I will cover things found out though using the Olympus DM-620 for a good long while and items not covered in the manuals or Olympus web site(s).

1. Three microphones. That's awesome because this thing records in stereo WITH a middle channel. For capturing all the nuances of an outdoor recording, you'd be hard pressed to beat this little recorder. I recorded a stream in the mountains of Virginia and you can hear EVERTHING; left channel, right channel, water gurgling, water splashing...you get my meaning...you hear it ALL.
2. Micro SD card. Can go all the way to 32Gb microSD and add the 4Gb internal it gives you, overall, 36Gb of recording time. I don't care WHAT format you use, that's a LOT of recording time.
3. Rechargeable batteries included. Plus you can use regular AAA's (alkaline). Downside is you have to charge using USB or buy an optional wall charger.
4. Some have reviewed on here that this recorder is all metal. It isn't. It's a metal front with a plastic back. What do you expect for under $200? It's plenty durable, nonetheless.
