Summary:

The DS-2400 is one of Olympus' newest voice recorders optimized for dictation. It provides the ability to record conversations under a variety of conditions with excellent quality. Its intuitive controls make operation so simple that the 8 (2"x4") page Quick Start Guide is all you'll need to start recording and playing back conversations of all kinds. The included DSS Player software supports both Windows (2000, XP, and Vista - including Vista Ultimate 64-bit) and Macintosh (OS X 10.39 - 10.5.6).

Details:

I have owned a voice recorder once before, but it finally got lost, so it was time to do the research to find a replacement. A number of things impressed me, on paper, about the DS-2400
- Brand new model from Olympus (so a long life of support is expected)
- Compact model with all the features I wanted (built-in mono microphone and speaker; 3.5 mm min-jacks for connecting external mono or stereo mics and speakers) clear, easy to ready display and controls; save recordings as new files or append or insert recordings into existing files, multiple folders for storing files; long battery life [24 hours in QP mode, 30 hours in SP mode, 13 hours in playback mode]; settable recording quality; Voice activation; and dictation vs. conference modes)
- Uses removable storage (SD or SDHC cards, from 512 MB to 16 GB), and supports 77 hours of "Quality" (QP) recording in the included 1 GB card, or a whopping 157 hours 50 minutes of "Standard" (SP) recording
- Included DSS Player software supports the latest PCs and Macs

After purchase (and swift delivery from Amazon), I decided to give the DS-2400 a full test:
- Initial setup and use of the recorder was so easy I really didn't need to read the 8-page Quick Start Guide.

I have used Olympus recorders for many years overall they are good machines. But, Olympus often decides to change file formats without consideration of the end user. This is the case with the DS-2400. This new handheld recorder from Olympus uses a new voice file format called DS2. This file format is playable only with the new Olympus software that comes with the Ds-2400. Olympus will not share this software. You must buy a machine to get a player. This is a serious deficiency for users that may want to send their voice files to transcriptionists or to other people that do not have an Olympus player.

I was just going to post this, and you beat me to the punch...I bought one of these at the urging of the transcription company, which handles 1000 clients, when my DS-2300 died. There is absolutely no support for DS2 files and you have to convert them every time. Transcription IT spent a week working with Olympus and couldn't get it right. I finally returned this device and got a Philips 9370 which makes only DSS files. Dont get this handheld unless every single person you dictate to knows what to do with DS2 files.

Poor job on this one Olympus, you just cost yourself about 150 handheld dictation devices from our corporation.

I'm a long-time user of Olympus voice recorders and the features this one offers are truly impressive. See Sperazza's review for a detailed breakdown. Everything about the hardware seems great. However, in order to play the .DS2 files you create on this device, you need Olympus's proprietary software, which you can ONLY get on the CD that comes with the device (you can't download it from their website -- the website won't even tell you the most current version number). I installed the software on my office machine, which is a pretty standard Windows XP setup, and I could not use it to play DS2 files. I'd try to open a file, and nothing would happen. The program could handle other file formats (WMA and MP3) but not DS2. No error message -- just no response. After a couple of attempts to manipulate a DS2 file it would finally tell me that the file didn't exist or couldn't be found, even though I could easily find it in my directory.

I phoned Olympus customer support, where a nice gentleman helpfully informed me that there's a bug in the software that makes it unreliable when used with a networked machine. My office computer is networked, and that's where I want to use it. And, of course, without functioning software, the device is useless, since as far as I can tell pretty much no non-Olympus software can handle DS2 files yet, and that's the only kind of file the DS-2400 can create. So despite its great feature set, I will be returning this to Amazon.

I advise you to try to do whatever research you can before you buy this to determine whether the software will run on your machine. If you are planning on using this at your home, or in a non-networked environment, you probably won't have any trouble.

I am a lawyer and have to do a lot of dictation. I have used much more expensive Olympus recorders before, but I tried this one and it works great! I record my dictation and then upload the files over the Internet to the transcribers. It works great.

My only complaint is the button functions on the side of the recorder are not really very intuitive as compared to other recorders I have used, but I got used to it. Also, the software the comes with it is not very intuitive, either, but I have it figured out.

It has excellent recording quality. If you need a digital recorder, I recommend this one. Why spend $250 more for essentially the same thing?
