I have been using this recorder for several weeks. I purchased the microphone that allows you to record calls on a cell phone (or any phone). I find it very easy to use. The controls are easy to understand. The sound quality is very good. The USB cord makes it very easy to transfer files onto my PC. I like the easy procedure for transferring files from my PC to the Recorder. I enjoy listening to music and audio books. I have transferred several mp3 files, and listened to it as if it were an mp3 player. A much easier, user friendly, mp3 player. I have owned several voice recorders. The others were manufactured by others. I have always been disappointed. But this one does everything I need it to do.
I am disabled. Due to a medical condition, I have very little feeling in my finger tips. This Olympus Digital Voice Recorder allows me to record in situations that preclude me from writing notes. I can barely use a pen. But I have no problems with the buttons and switches on the Olympus. It has a large capacity, and the batteries are holding up very well.

This little digital recorder certainly performs, no doubt about that. As far as any issues with quality, I have yet to find any real drawbacks- it is always helpful to remember for a 2GB device, you're getting a *lot* of punch. I've had mine just over a month- with the case, at a price around $62, now they seem to be selling at $69, and my Seller now has them listed at $89... (?). NOTE: I just checked 3/11/12, and the price is back down to around $66 (?) again!

I can see the tech features they've packed into this tiny recorder (it is NOT 1.2 lbs) and the USB cable is definitely included. But other elements, well, without too much effort, you have to work out on your own. Other reviewers have mentioned the lack of clarity in the instructions- spot on. The 'forced' use of Folders A-E, not sure why they're not an option. I also get more accustomed to accessing the files on the recorder related to date and time, but when you move them to a PC, the naming convention is by file order. Not that big of a problem, except when you erase a recording, it re-orders the files, so there's no continuity when you move them to your PC. (**UPDATE:- To be clear- it doesn't RENAME the files or Resequence them, it just confuses ya because {I} get more accustomed to looking for the files via WHEN I recorded them... It would be better IMHO, if the naming convention stuck to a date/time stamp method.
When you're in menu mode, it can be too easy to change a setting without knowing it. And after 5 minutes of non-use the recorder goes into 'standby/sleep' mode- if you're not watching the screen you'll miss the "See You" message, and likely forget that any key wakes it up. I'm not sure how that varies to actually shutting the recorder off, battery-wise.

I just got my Olympus 8100PC late yesterday and I'm already able to record and playback! Considering I'm not the most technology savvy person going, I was able to set the time. For anyone who is having trouble reading the instructions (they are NOT what I'd rate 5 stars!) this is how I started off:

Setting Time and Date

Push the OK/Menu button in the center of recorder and hold for a few seconds. (It will bring up a menu). Using the minus key, scroll down to "Device Menu" (it's all the way to the bottom and there may not be enough room for it to show up until you scroll all the way down to it). Highlight it, and push the OK/Menu button.
Select "Time and Date" and push the OK/Menu button again. Using the directional arrows on the sides of the OK/Menu button, set the date and time. When you have finished, push the OK/Menu button, then push the "STOP" key. It's all set!!

Once you have gone through this process, you will find the others less confusing! I hope this helps someone!

Had the recorder for about a month now and the battery still hasn't died and i use it about every day for 3 hours. The battery life is AMAZING!!!!!! it picks up sound pretty well although if the mic is not facing toward the person talking or if it's more than 2-3 ft away you'll have a hard time hearing the recording. Not so great in picking up sound as i though. On the contrast glad it came with a case and so happy i don't have to spend a lot of money on batteries. Also i really like the different folders you can record in so you don't get your recordings mixed up. I read in a review before that it said this recorder doesn't have a pause button, however it does, if you press record after it was recording it pauses and i think it can pause up to an hour. anyways i think it was great......

This is my first digital recorder. The instructions could have been a little more detailed, but I figured them out with little problem. I felt it was user friendly and have already downloaded to my computer, easy and simple. The only thing that I was a little dissappointed about was the playback volume. I looked to see if I could adjust the record volume but didn't see that option.

I bought this recorder for recording my class lecture. My lecture hall isn't too big (about 100 student). I sit in the middle of the room and it capture the professor's voice very clearly (I did buy the external microphone to get better reach but without it still works find but voice isn't as loud). The battery lasted longer than what the spec said. I recorded about 20 hours and only 1 bar out of 3 was used.
