Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Have only used once so far. I needed a small, cheap voice recorder and this fit the bill. I would rather have one with a mini-cassette in order to save a tape of a conversation, but it seems that model has gone bye-bye (at least in my price range). Only used it once so far. So far, so good. Happy with the voice quality/clarity. 07/10/2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by I bought this DP-201 to replace a Voice-It recorder that I'd used in the late 1990's. Although the Olympus is slightly larger, that can be overlooked due to the other significant characteristics that it has. No bells and whistles like the more expensive units, but works fine for my simplistic note taking needs. HOWEVER, I still am unable to use some of the features because the instructions included are very difficult to follow and/or possibly even incorrect. For example, I haven't figured out how to set time and date. Haven't had it long enough to comment on battery life, but it would be nice if the action buttons would activate the power rather than the requirement to manually switch the unit on/off. I fear forgetting to turn it off and running the battery down frequently. AND, it does take a couple of seconds to power on, so no quick grab from pocket, push record and speak. You must turn it on and watch for power first, then press record. I would recommend this unit for its small size, light weight and record time for simple personal recording needs..... I'll keep working on the instructions and maybe even call to see if I can speak to a person who has a better handle on the English language than the person who wrote the instructions. 10/15/2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by For the money, this is an excellent choice. I chose this for recording lectures at college. I absolutely am 100% satisfied. 10/14/2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth the money Just needed for recording a meeting once a month. Does an excellent job for the low price, and easy to use. 10/26/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by IT REALLY IS A GOOD VALUE Once I figured out how to operate it, it was really easy. It picks up sound very well & has a decent speaker volume. I don't please easily & I'm pleased. 10/26/2012
