8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Debbie Lee Wesselmann TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 23, 2008
For those who don't want to invest in an expensive digital recorder, the Olympus Microcassette recorder is perfect for interviews and taking voice notes. The volume control allows for sensitive sound pick-up, and the dual speeds allow for either longer recording or higher sound quality. Use the voice activation feature for automatic recording. Although the sound quality is hardly perfect, it is adequate for most uses. Because of its small size, it fits easily into a average-size purse or small backpack pocket.

This little unit can be operated with minimal effort - practically straight from the plastic pack. It comes with one microcassette and the necessary batteries. Highly recommended for people who don't mind the older technology or for those on a budget.

Unit came well wrapped and in good condition. The seller stated very good condition, but I found two minor edge abrasions on the case. The sound isn't very good, but then again the purpose of having the recoder was to listen to a few old tapes from 14 years ago. Could be the tapes, but it could also be the tape heads. The unit is used so this would be expected. I would say it works fine with no issues so far.

Considering you can't find these antiquated recoders new without paying a hefty price, this is well worth the investment. Simply keep in mind, if you are looking for a quality recoder to take notes in class room I'd go with one of the new digital units that are just a bit more money. This serves its purpose for me.
