This has good sound quality both inside and outside. Very easy to use and has voice activation. The voice activation is very useful if you are recording something with a lot of pauses. I actually used it to see if my dog was barking much during my absent...he wasn't!

Nowever, for most of my work, I need to be able to download to a computer so I will probably get an Olympus VN 702 PC that I expect will have the same benefits with that added advantage.

I bought this recorder to record my astronomy observations which I can't manage to get written down any more. This morning I was out in the cold watching for the last crescent Moon and counting sunspots. As a test of the recorder I put it into in internal chest pocket of my zipped up down parka right next to the speaker mic of my amateur radio. As anticipated the squeels of APRS packets from the radio were loud and clear. Also loud and clear was me mumbling to myself at the telescope. I want to try this again when I am observing with others and see how well it records the other half of my conversation when the other person is not standing right next to me. I forgot to turn the recorder off so I could hear every footfall along the way home as the shock was transmitted through my body and the backpack with the telescope and tripod pulled on my shoulders. The electronics in this recorder appear to be able to pull in distant sounds while not being overpowered by nearby loud sounds.

You can split a recording in two but I don't see any way to append additional audio to an already existing file.

You can set an alarm and key it to a recording so I can set an alarm to remind me when and where to look for a satellite. It looks like you can only set one alarm though. I will have to add a comment to the end of each alarm text telling me what recording to set for the next alarm and what time to set it for. When you set up an alarm you have to have the file you want to play at that time selected. If you delete a file the numbers of any subsequent files are defermented by 1. I have not checked to see if this impacts what alarm file gets played or if the software makes any necessary adjustments.

Unfortunately all you get with the recording is a datestamp even though you do have to set the time when you install batteries. I had hoped for a timestamp to help me figure out what time I saw something. I will have to dictate timestamps.

There is no way to get recordings from the recorder into a computer.

This is a good basic recorder but for my purposes I would have been better off spending another $20 to get a more capable recorder. At the time of this impulse purchase the only other recorders on display were of the $150 flavor which is more impulse than I was willing to stomach.

Very satisfied

Comments about Olympus VN-7200 Digital Voice Recorder:

This is a great buy for a very reasonable price. The packground noise - noise cancellation works very well, and the quality of the recording is clear and distinct. It's easy to use, for recording and for playback. All the options that I use for playback, like repeat, forward/backward work smoothly, and I like the options of having several folders for various recordings. It's very light weight, and easy to handle. The instruction booklet gives complete instructions, which is a bonus. I didn't have to go online to lookup instructions. Great price, very good quality, for me, it does just what is say it will do.

Love it and disappointed.

By Hank McConnell

Comments about Olympus VN-7200 Digital Voice Recorder:

I purchased two VN-7200 in 2013. Both stopped operating by May 2014.
I purchased a third one a few months ago. I use the recorder daily and can't be without it. I am sending the two units back to Olympus for repairs.

It's a great tool

Perfect for What We Needed

By Caregiver

Verified Buyer

Comments about Olympus VN-7200 Digital Voice Recorder:

We bought this to record thoughts for a legacy book. It is easy to use in recording mode as well as playback. The sound quality is surprisingly good - the unit does not have to be right next the person speaking and those speaking do not have to speak loudly to be picked up. Playback for transcription was easy as well - skipping to specific portions/records is reasonable.

    Comments about Olympus VN-7200 Digital Voice Recorder:

    This is a valuable tool, but only if you aren't very tech savvy. This unit records meetings for work and it does so without the white noise that ends up on micro cassettes. But the files have to stay on the recorder until you delete them. There is no data port for uploading to the computer. If you want to record meetings and share the sound files for those who missed the meetings, you are out of luck.
