A user-friendly mono voice recorder with an impressively long battery life, the mid-range Olympus VN-712PC is ideally suited to anyone wanting a fuss free solution to taking notes. It's perfect for business meetings, memos to self and educational study. And what could be more perfect for that language class?

Featuring what Olympus believes to be the best low noise microphone in its class, the VN-712PC offers the advantage of widely compatible MP3 file recording alongside fine WMA audio quality, with 800+ hours of recording time provided in LP mode courtesy of its 2GB built-in memory.

As if that wasn't enough the VN-712PC offers convenience in spades, particularly with regard to downloading audio to your PC or Mac, and sharing it via email, for which swift USB connectivity is provided. This model additionally provides a microSD card slot, offering the potential for an extra 32GB worth of storage.

Add in voice activated recording too, with a low cut filter cutting down on extraneous noise when recording – and the process of using the Olympus VN-712PC is literally as simple as speak, record, transfer.

Text size switchable between large or small

Large fonts are displayed on a large LCD display to ensure high visibility. Moreover, you can choose between large and small text to suit your preference. When the text size is set to large, the text display will be much more visible during playback or recording.

Calendar search function

Calendar search function makes finding files easy

Audio files saved on the recorder can be automatically managed via date, with a calendar-like display provided for easier access.

The VN-PC series of recorders has a direct button for calling up this calendar. And of course the ability to be able to search for files is one of the key attractions of a digital voice recorder. What's more, with this model earphones are provided out of the box.

Optimum trouble-free recording with Scene Select

Optimum trouble-free recording with Scene Select

By simply selecting from the recording menu, you can set optimum recording settings according to the scenes. With four modes and one user configuration, enable anyone to easily achieve trouble-free, high-quality recording.

Low noise microphone optimised to enhance voice recording

The Olympus VN-712PC is equipped with a high performance monaural omni-directional microphone that collects sounds clearly from all directions. The improved microphone S/N (Signal to Noise) ratio enables clearer voice recording. The built-in stand cleverly located at the back of the body is designed to reduce the noise from the surface when the recorder is placed on a tabletop.

2GB internal memory for up to 823 hours recording, PLUS microSD card expansion slot

An incredible 823 hours of recording time is offered by the VN-712PC in LP mode thanks to its expansive 2GB internal memory. Users can also save up to 200 recordings in each of the five available folders. The fact that the recorder has a slot for an optional microSD card means that the capacity can be expanded to an additional degree, dictated by the size of the card inserted, with up to 32GB supported.

Thanks to 99 index marks, important sections of a recording can also be earmarked for easier retrieval and playback.

By selecting from the recording menu, the VN-712PC further allows optimum recording settings to be set according to 'scenes' – for example a business meeting, conference, voice memo and so forth. With four modes and one user configuration, anyone can achieve stress free high quality recording.

Long battery life

Additional benefits include longer battery life and the convenience of power coming courtesy of 2x alkaline AAA batteries – so this is one device that truly won't leave you lost for words.

Lightweight and portable

The VN-712PC measures a compact and diminutive 108x39x16.8mm and won't weigh heavy on your pocket, purse, or wallet for that matter. In short it's a simple yet complete solution for digital recording and playback.

This is used as a dictation machine, rather than a simple recorder. I really wanted a dictation machine as I send audio files over a secure server to a virtual assistant. However, the proper dictation machines were very expensive.

Having read other reviews and looked at a few products I went for this, and it's great. Very compact, pretty easy to use - the guidelines are helpful and I tested it a few times to get a feel for it before using it properly.

The only thing this is lacking, which a "proper" dictation machine would have, is a rewind button as I normally like to be able to play back the last bit to see if I'm making sense. However, that's a small niggle for a good value product which does the trick at a fraction of the dictation machine's cost.

(In dictation, I make liberal use of the "pause" function - basically, when you're recording, press the record button again and it will pause - don't press "stop" or it will save that file and go to a new one when you press record again.)

I previously used a mini-disk recorder circa 1998. They were good at the time, but not ideal for transferring stuff to pc.You needed an external mic as well.
I got this a couple of days before going to a week of masterclasses with a world-renowned musician. It was dead easy to use and I had no problems at all with it. I took my laptop with me and it really is great to be able to drag-and-drop onto pc then you have your recordings backed up and available for what ever editor you use.
Sound quality great for close-up and for live concerts.
Really compact. Doesn't gobble batteries. Unobtrusive.

Colour Name: BlackSize: 4GB Verified Purchase
I have used the occasional note-taking with recorders over the years and owned analogue and digital alike, but this Olympus VN-713PC sets the standard with all the best features. Just to mention a few main ones: excellent audio quality, hours of recording capacity (and expandable with memory card), good battery life, easy transfer to computer, customisable recording management organised by folders, and the all-important time-stamping of recordings as well as calendar-based search of recordings.

There is also an option of voice activated recording, as well as customisations such as quality versus capacity settings, or utilities such as splitting an audio file to smaller sizes.

I cannot think of a significant downside for this digital recorder except a very minor one -- which is that my recorder clock loses about a minute in a couple of days (an intrinsic problem with all time pieces based on quartz crystal). I noticed this simply due to the benefit of having a radio-controlled wall clock in front of me; even PC clocks deviate by a greater margin if not synchronised with a time server so this shouldn't come as a major problem. Just make sure the time deviation is not widely out of sync and if necessary adjust it especially when making important recordings.

The usefulness of this digital recorder is further enhanced by a wide range of accessories supplied by Olympus which are reasonably priced and available here on Amazon.

A first class digital recorder - in my opinion - one that sets the standard by which others will be compared and measured. Highly recommended.

Colour Name: BlackSize: 4GB Verified Purchase
I am astonished by the sound quality of the recording on the NV-713pc. I bought an Olympus DM-20 for over £300 in 2006 - a top end model - but the NV-713pc is vastly superior (notwithstanding the metal body on the DM20 compared with the 713's plastic casing). The MP3 format on the 713 at the highest setting (192kbs) with a low recording level for dictation - gives a recording quality suitable for podcasting (speaking 'across the mic, not into it which causes plosive 'pops'). And as the 713 has an internal 4GB memory, with optional SD card slot, I see no reason to use all but the best quality settings. Now, instead of a 'simple voice recorder' as I was expecting, I get a hugely improved bit of kit (better sound, battery life, memory - than the old DM-20) for under £50!! One caveat, I find the WMA format 'pingy'and metallic - so I urge anyone reckoning between the VN-711pc and either VN-712pc or VN-713pc to consider one of the latter - as they have MP3 formats. And for people wishing to record conferences or meetings, I did a quick test using a 'scene' setting for 'meeting' and it picked up my voice across the room fine. The only niggle is not being able to custom name the 5 folders (A,B,C,D,E) - to eg. Home, Work, Project etc. which I could do on the DM20. A tiny niggle.

This product is great. The sound quality is really good. It's fairly simple to transfer files from the device to your computer, but once you've found the right folder, it's easy. I've found that it picks up sounds easily. It's so simple to use; all you need to do is turn it on, set the date and time, then that's it; press record and you're ready to go. I would recommend this to anyone.
