I guess it's a good device for the price... You can adjust time and hour, there's a plug for a microphone and earphone, It's easy to use. There also two quality record mode. It works with two AAA batteries, It's really small and light.
the only thing I wish it could have is a way of transferring the records to the computer... there's no memory cards or usb entrance.

I have used Olympus voice recorders for years starting back when I remodeled my house which generated a blue million notes for my things to do list. Over the last 10 years I have owned virtually every Olympus model as they end up either given to folks or it is missed in dirty clothes and it dies in the washing machine. I gave this unit five stars since it is the best cheap recorder. Don't read that to mean it is the best recorder. Presently I would say that is the Olympus 802 line.

Oh yeah, Amazon delivered on time and packed right.

Just recieved from JR Music thru Amazon. Easy too use. Very small, just what I was looking for. The listing said batteries are included, they weren't ! No hand strap included either. The unit seems good. I will update after using awhile.

It works great and is easy to use, but it is a massive battery hog. I recorded a 90 minute lecture and then was able to listen to 15 minutes of it before the first set of batteries died. So if I plan on going to class 4x/wk and taping a total of 4 hours each day, and then listening to those four hours, I will be going through a zillions dollars worth of AAA batteries each week. I will now have to buy a battery charger and rechargeable batteries. This now defeats the purpose of getting the cheaper voice recorder. If I would have known I would have to do this, I would have looked for a better recorder that came with a usb charger or something for more money.

It does exactly what it says it does. Mic is nice and sensitive. I tested it by putting it in a shoe in my bedroom closet, closing the door and talking for a few mins. Playback was more than sufficient, especially since it has a volume. I use it daily for taking notes as I tend to be very forgetful of simple things. Very small and convenient and with my current usage I am guessing the batteries will last about a year before replacing. For the cost it is yet another Amazon purchase that cannot be beat. Having Amazon prime is also awesome as I always get my order in 2 days and sometimes they show up next day if my purchase was early in the day.

Very easy to use and lots of minutes to record. Very good playback quality even when recording from across the room. I will surely recommend this product.

Anyone who likes to leave themselves audio message will not go wrong with this product. It serves this purpose well.

I've been looking for digital recorders for a low price for quite some time. I am a high school French teacher, and using voice recorders is a great way for students to hear their own strengths and weaknesses in speaking. It's also a good way for me to give them speaking assignments outside of class time. These were at a price that was affordable enough that I could buy six so that my students can share them. They work perfectly for my needs - very easy to use, decent enough sound quality, etc. So excited to find these at such a good price! The only negatives are that sound quality is not awesome and that it doesn't have a USB hookup, so you couldn't easily transfer files from the device directly to a computer, but neither of these were essential for my needs.

I did some research before buying this recorder. It was cheaper on amazon. Radio s had it on sale for $24.99 still above the price here. About the recorder. For $20 you are getting a very well usable recorder. I used it for a few minutes and did play back and there was no static. I use this on drives during work recording new commercial buildings. Pretty easy to use. I like that its also digital. The buttons are big enough to see while driving to hit the correct button. You could buy the more expensive styles but I do not see why if you are just recording because this one does just that- Record and play back.

This is a great recorder for a great price. Nothing fancy but it serves the purpose. Class lectures and research interviews. Clarity is great.
