David, Northwich

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Light weight and very pocket-able size. Unobtrusive in use and exhibits good sensitivity for recording conferences.
Good connectivity to PC and as a bonus can be used as a flash drive.
Bad points:
Screen could do with having a back-light facility for use in low-light situations. Would also prefer it to have been supplied with a carry case as standard.

Alan, Sussex Casual user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Still using the original batteries. Good for recording at meetings or for notes.
Bad points:
Sufficiently simple that my 6 year old grandson can use it! - so I have to be carefull where I leave it, but fortunately the erase is not TOO easy to use so my memos are not deleted.

Confirmed purchaser Not very technical

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is very compact and light. The instructions are easy to follow and the recording quality is very good. I used it to record a meeting so that I did not have to take notes. It worked really well. I have not transferred files to my computer yet so cannot comment on that.
Bad points:
None that i can think of

Sophie, Chambéry, France

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
It worked very well while it did work but....
Bad points:
After 3 weeks of using it I could no longer record anything. It said that it was "full" despite my having deleted all of the files and when I tried to "erase all" it recognised that there were no recordings. I had to get a refund on it and get a new Olympus one which was more expensive because the store did not have any left in stock.
