      Comments about Olympus Digital Voice Recorder:

      I use this digital recorder in a professional way. I am a technical writer and I use this DR all the time. I go to meetings and place it on the tale and everyone knows that the minutes of the meeting will be accurate. Keeps the language clean too.

      I also use it to record webinars (phone or PC), seminars, conferences, and official settings. I then transfer the sound files and make review programs with the recordings.

      REVIEW: This is a VERY effective, discreet, and reliable tool. Good battery life, good sound quality, and very easy to use. The menu commands are intuitive and there is very little chance for accidentally erasing data.

      I am very happy with this exceptional and would recommend it to anyone. I wish my iPhone could do as well.

      RECOMMENDATION: I wish I could record in .mp3 format as well as .wav format.

      AJ.
