High-Quality Recording in a Compact and Easy-to-Use Device

The VN-702 digital audio recorder is great for easy note-taking in the classroom or at work. The new design features a large LCD screen and built-in stand, 2 GB of internal memory, and microSD memory card compatibility, allowing you to capture high-quality audio with ease. The VN-702PC enables you to download your files via USB and records in both MP3 and WMA formats.

823 Hours of Recording Time

With 2 GB of internal memory and up to 823 hours of recording time, you are able to capture notes, lectures, and more and still have room to store documents. The device also features a microSD slot with the potential to hold up to 32 GB of additional memory.

Built-In Stand

The built-in stand on the back of the body is carefully designed to reduce noise from the surface when the recorder is placed on the table. It works much like a kickstand and allows users to read the menu without having to look down at the recorder.

USB Connectivity to E-mail, Edit and Archive

USB connectivity enables fast file transfers to your PC, as well as storage for e-mailing.

Multi-Format Recording

Record and play back in two standard high-function formats: MP3 and WMA.

Calendar Search Function

The Calendar Search Function allows you to easily search your files by date and play them back with ease.

Variable Control Voice Activator

Voice Activation saves time and energy by allowing you to start and stop the recording hands-free.

Scene Select

Wherever you are - whether in a conference room, large hall, or at home - the microphones will automatically adjust to capture the best sound depending on your setting.

I have purchased over 20 of these for field recordings. All 20 have worked right out of the packaging with no problems.

- I love that these will record directly to MP3 so they are Mac friendly.

- Battery life (AAA) on these is quite good.

- Recording quality is great for what it is designed for. If you are looking for awesome quality use the Olympus LS-7 Linear PCM Voice Recorder (142670) but for everyday recording use, this is a great option.

What is it designed for? Classroom use, office use, dictation, and portability usage.

What is it not designed for? Professional recording.

***** UPDATE SEPTEMBER 3, 2012 *****

I have now purchased over 45 of these units. I have not had any failures in any of the units. We have used them with people of all levels of technological abilities and all have picked up quickly. Great little recorder for voice recording.

UPDATE 3/22/13: I've used this recorder now to make hundreds of audio recordings. Its batteries have gone out many times, due to so much use. Only once did I lose some of the recording, and that only a tiny part at the end. The sound clarity is good, even on the smallest file settings (like 48kbps). Am really surprised. Initial review, follows below the line.
---------------------------
UPSHOT: right now as I type, this is the lowest-priced and best Olympus recorder in Amazon - if you buy it from Amazon. There are other sellers of this unit advertising via Amazon who sell the 702PC for up to twice what I just paid for it (I paid less than $50). So compare prices, here in Amazon. I would have been willing to pay up to $80-90, but why do it if you don't have to?

I fear even the Amazon-sold 702PC won't remain cheap for long; but I feel duty-bound to say all this, after seeing how my older models are selling for 3x more than I paid for them, today here onsite. I made reviews on my other recorders, the WS-110, 960PC, and 1800, here in Amazon, so you can compare. All four models are sitting on my table as I type. 'Mike' did a review after mine here. You might want to read his review, before reading mine. He brings up certain points which aren't wholly relevant to my usage, but might be important for yours. So what he says, I don't cover in this review.

MY USAGE, so you can decide whether to keep reading: I intend to use this unit primarily as a portable storage device, plus to record lectures, make memos; and especially, to do voiceovers for my 'brainouty' Youtube videos.

So: I Just got this 702PC from Amazon.

I have used this recorder a few times, outside and in. Several research partners have used it as well. Regardless of the setting or voice tone, the recorder works remarkably well. Whether in labs or outside near heavily used doors, the quality of the recording is great. Better than I ever could have expected. Set-up and of the manner features is a breeze.

This little guy is fabulous at catching my lectures! The sound is great! I have no problem listening to my recordings right after class through earphones or even through the AUX outlet in my car!

It was very easy to transfer the recording to my computer. The recorder is pretty easy to use. The index function is pretty handy to help mark important parts of your recording.

I've only used it for one day so far, but if I change my feelings about this recorder I will update my review.

Purchased the recorder to replace another Olympus I lost recently. Used it every day without any issues. The new recorder is better yet. The voice files can be transferred to my PC. Looking forward to not losing this one and years of great service.

(If you think this review is too long, you can stop reading at any time. Thank you.)

Update 111212: I originally wrote that this was a 5 star product but I gave it 4 because I was being an Ergonomic Purist. However, after living with the unit for a while now, I'm going to say this is only a 4 star product. I'm just not comfortable trusting this unit. (See next update, below.) If you need absolute reliability, look elsewhere. If you don't need 100% reliability, this unit is fine. Based on my experience with my old Sony recorders, I believe the Sony Digital Flash Voice Recorder (ICD-PX312) is the safer choice. IIRC, it was an Amazon top choice for a while. (And the price reflects that.)

Update 111212: Since Capt'n Dave (is that the Capt'n Dave from Arizona FlyWays? Miss your articles) was so kind to leave a nice comment, I felt I'd better update with this: Had a strange aberration a week ago. I was listening to a recording I had made and for a few seconds into the playback the sound slowed down as if real tape had stretched across the playback head! Really weird.

Also, another time, the battery indicator was showing two bars, but the unit beeped "Low Battery" on me and shut off. That could be a manifestation of using NiMH batteries. (The unit's battery indicator is calibrated for alkaline batteries.) So if you use NiMH batteries, learn to swap out batteries at two bars.

And the internal clock is slow. Or at least I think it is. Whenever I change the batteries, I always have to bring the time up a few hours.
