Product Description

The Olympus VN-732PC: Simple and easy to use recorder provides essential functions - ideal for beginners

A large-diameter low-noise microphone for clear recording

The entry-level VN series is the perfect solution for recording your voice, reminders, notes or just about anything. With its large LCD screen and speaker, the front panel is designed to be familiar and convenient. Ease-of-use was Olympus' prime motivation when designing the front-panel buttons, and as a result, even beginners can make full use of this device.

Clear recording

A large-diameter low-noise microphone for clear recording

The large diameter microphone records sound from all directions with less noise providing clearer recordings. The recorder also eliminates breathing sounds which makes it ideal for dictation.

Built-in stand

The built-in stand attached to the back of the body props up the recorder so the display can be viewed and buttons are accessed more easily. The stand also contributes to high quality recording by reducing the noise emitted directly from a surface.

Usability

Simple mode perfect for beginners
Simple mode perfect for beginners

The simple mode supports beginners by having the recorder display only the necessary information in large font. It also limits the functions in the menu to those most frequently used. For advanced users, the normal mode with full functionality is recommended.

The "Telephone Recording" and "Duplication" for Scene Select

By simply selecting from the menu, you can set optimum recording settings according to the scenes. "Telephone Recording" and "Duplication" have been added as options that are available when the recorder is used in combination with accessories. It is now possible to easily record telephone conversations or duplicate from cassette tapes.

1,600 Hours of Recording Time and 100 Hours of Battery Life

With 4 GB of internal memory and up to 1,600 hours of recording time, you are able to capture notes, lectures, and more and still have room to store documents.

With over 100 hours of battery life your voice recorder will still be going strong long after your Smartphone has died.

The new Telephone Recording and Duplication for Scene Select
Portable USB cable with a strap

The recorder is bundled with a portable USB cable which is compact and easy to store. You can attach the portable USB cable to the recorder with a strap. It also has a place to store extra microSD cards.

Colour Name: GreySize: 2 GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
"There's an app for that." Yes, and the question the prospective purchaser needs to ask is this: why should I spend £50+ on a new device when my smartphone already has voice recording and speech recognition built in to its operating system?

The answer is that you have to consider the advantages this dedicated digital voice recorder offers over a smartphone. Here are a few:

- It's very small and light - it weighs just over 70 grams and is the size of a small candybar phone.
- You won't need to keep it on charge. Two AAA batteries are claimed to last for 100 hours of use.
- You can lend it to someone else, so a small office could keep one for general use. You wouldn't do that with your phone.
- It has a decent noise-cancelling microphone, together with dedicated mic and earphone sockets. The recording quality is very good.
- It comes with a copy of Dragon Naturally Speaking (DNS) 12 (recorder edition) and has a dedicated DNS recording mode.
- Dedicated buttons, rather than a touchscreen, so no accidental swipes and taps.

On the other hand:

- The styling is 80s-retro and it feels plasticky in the hand. It looks businesslike enough, though.
- The user interface is also 80s-retro. There is no way of naming anything, so your recordings will be stored in folders A-E and be numbered from 1-200. If you want to find a specific recording, you'll have to hunt for it.
- The integration with DNS is pretty rudimentary.
- DNS needs training to work well. You'll be making a lot of corrections to your transcribed text, especially in the early days.
- There is no security. Lose the device and anyone who finds it can play all the contents.
- Only supports Windows PCs and the WMA file format.

My advice is to see if you can borrow one and try it for a day or two. You may be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to use, once you've got accustomed to it. It just takes a little time.

Colour Name: GreySize: 2 GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've used quite a few voice recorders in my time and what I like about this one is how easy it is to get to grips with even without looking at the instructions, for the most part I find it to be very intuitive. I'm also impressed with the energy efficiency/management of this DVR (Digital Voice Recorder); this is important because I've got over 14 hours of recording and played it all back again and I'm still showing the battery full symbol, this compares extremely favourably with a previous DVR I had at the end of last year Sony ICDBX132 BX Series 2GB Voice Recorderwhere the battery life just seemed to evaporate even when it wasn't being used.

This DVR is so lightweight that with batteries fitted it still only weighs 2.5 ounces and although it's made of plastic it doesn't feel 'plasticky' (in the cheap sense). The quality of recording is very good, I have mine set permanently on WMA 64 kbps (the other options are 32 kbps mono and 5 kbps mono) - but these 3 recording level options are only available if the DNS (Dragon Naturally Speaking) recording setting is not selected. It's also easy to scroll backwards and forwards through recordings. Transferring recordings to a PC is also very simple and is done via the mini USB cable supplied. All in all, I highly recommend it.

However, this package also comes with a pared down version of Dragon dictate, it says the set up for it is quick but it's not; just reading the selected text for the software to recognise my talking style took 25 minutes, and about the same again for it to 'self-train'.

Colour Name: SilverSize: 4 GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is an easy-to-use digital voice recorder, that offers some significant advantages over using your mobile phone, not least the large internal memory (which can be boosted with memory cards) and long battery life. That said, the recording quality, while better than you'd expect from using your mobile phone, isn't particularly brilliant. I have tried dictating short paragraphs for use with Dragon NaturallySpeaking (for which there is a dedicated setting) and the results are mixed, but not unusable. So you won't be using this for anything more than note taking.

It's also worth pointing out that the USB cable is very short. It's obvious that Olympus have it in mind that you'll be using a laptop, but if you are using a desktop PC, the device will be left hanging in the air. Fortunately it is very light, so this isn't too big a problem. The other irritation is that when the device is connected to your PC via USB it cannot be used at all, even if you have 'ejected' it from the PC. This means you cannot save the batteries by running the voice recorder on your PC's power.

Colour Name: SilverSize: 4 GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have used a previous Olympus Voice Recorder and thought it was easy to use and really good except that I could never get the recording onto my Mac computer so in the end that was redundant.
I was happy to have this beginners model to try out as it does state it will upload onto a Mac.

I have had a hard time working out the files, folders, menu on this Voice Recorder. It's probably really easy…..yet I took ages to figure it out. It was not intuitive and I found it harder than the model I already own.
Once past that, the recording quality is really very good. Even tried it with the recorder hidden up a jumper and it recorded clear and loud.
This model has some options like Telephone recording, very useful, lecture recording or memos to self. Also you can make duplicate recordings from cassettes. I am hoping to put this use on my redundant other recorder cassettes, if it will work on those kind.
I will give this four stars because I like it and will use it, but I am taking a star off for being fiddly to begin using and also the machine feels fragile. I am not sure how robust it ail prove to be.
Still a good purchase overall and it does work on a Mac computer, unlike the other one.
