Product Description

The Olympus VN-733PC: 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 to record 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 this recorder 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 can be accessed more easily. The stand also contributes to high quality recording by reducing the noise emitted directly from a surface.

An impressive array of playback functions

Noise cancellation for clear playback quality

The noise-cancellation function powerfully reduces unwanted ambient noise such as air-conditioner noise or projector fan noise,enabling clear playback quality. The function is very effective when playing back meeting recordings.

Voice Balancer
Voice Balancer

When recordings contain multiple speakers, the Voice Balancer makes smaller voices louder and ensures that louder voices stay below a given level, providing playback where everyone can be heard clearly. This comes in handy when recording sound sources from multiple positions, such as at a meeting.

Usability

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.

Scene Select for fail-safe recording

Make sure your recordings are fail-safe by choosing the scene in which you want to record. Your recorder then instantly sets the optimal recording parameters. This function enables anyone to achieve trouble-free, high-quality recording.

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 possible to easily record telephone conversations or duplicate from cassette tapes.

The calendar function makes it easy to search for files

Audio files saved on the recorder are automatically marked with the date. Because files are displayed by the calendar format, you can quickly find the file you are looking for by the date of recording. The VN-PC series comes with a dedicated button so that the calendar can be called up immediately.

1,600 Hours of Recording Time and 100 Hours of Battery Life
TheTelephone Recording and Duplication for Scene Select

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.

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 Name: 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 Name: 2 GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A cracking piece of kit - more later.

Only 4 stars? Software was a nightmare to install on Windows and no equivalent complimentary software for Mac OS - an expensive optional purchase.

Bad points first. There are only two.

The guide states that the device can be used with Mac OS but the disk that arrived with the device only contained Windows software. It's a pity because my MacBook beats my PC hands down speed wise and they both have similar processors and RAM. I could have purchased software for use on my MacBook but it's expensive.

The second bad point is installation. I abandoned the installation after 35 minutes - I had to go out. The drive, which reads and writes a variety of formats and disks (CD, DVD and Lightscribe) had trouble reading the accompanying software disk. I tried the disk in several other computers with the same results so clearly not a drive issue. Just a lot of squeaks as if the drive was trying to read a bad disk and yet there were no marks on the disk. I put it down to a bad pressing at the disk copier. maybe a bad batch. No equivalent download from the Nuance website.

Now the good points... there are many.

For what it does, it is incredibly tiny. The version I received has 2GB of flash RAM and can record hundreds of hours of speech.

You begin by training the software to recognise your voice. In the past, I trained the system by repeating words displayed on the screen several times and the software worked out a general sample but this was not always accurate and it was very, very boring.

Training has moved on. You select one of a range of texts that take between 10 and 20 minutes to read. Mine took about 14 minutes, it was the inaugural speech of John F Kennedy.

Colour Name: GreySize Name: 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 and it's 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'.
