The recorder works to expectations. Good sound quality. A lot of customizable options for different venues, noise cancelation, good amount of onboard and upgradable memory. Easy to use interface. However, I was looking for something a little more portable, not so clunky. I originally looked to this model because it was, if I remember correctly, 2 generations newer with newer technology than the DM series. I only came to find that the DM-620 was just as good, if not better, and considerably smaller than the newer LS series. The DM-620 came with the Sonority software, a wrist lanyard and a padded pouch whereas the LS-12 did not. This software allows you to customize and tweak your recordings and even record from the software interface. Again the LS-12 is a good product and if you don't mind the size this can fit your needs. However, this just was just too bulky for me as you will see in the picture comparison to the right, the DM-620 will easily fit in your pocket.

Bought the unit at $123 - other quality "mono" recording units slightly cheaper, might as well go with the built in stereo mic unit. No issues with excessive hiss/background noise (Note: you have to set proper record level settings & set appropriate filtering). However, like other units with built in mics, you should not touch the unit when recording, otherwise will pick-up the "noise". With this unit, you definitely need to read the manual to get the best out of it. Good for office type recordings, school productions, etc. If you are looking to record the next best song/album, use as a recording device for DSLR videos (on board record systems are not the best), video projects, you should go with a higher end unit (also, will cost you > 200% of this cost of thi sunit).

I was looking for a quality recorder for recording nature sounds. Does a good job and is extremely sensitive thus picking up every noise around. The sensitivity can be adjusted which is also a bonus. My biggest problem is the built in memory is quite short. I will need to get a larger memory card to do what I am doing.

I have used my recorder to record a meeting with 30 men with the majority of the talking from the front but with a fair amount of interaction around the room. This Olympus LS-12 does a fairly good job of picking all of the communication up. I am secretary of my Council so I use this recorder to make sure I do not miss anything while I type up my notes. The basic features are easy to use but there are still some more advanced features that I am learning. For the money, this was a decent buy and I would do it again.

I am not a musician. The LS-12 has a solid, quality build feeling in the hand. It is easy to understand the menus and the screen is easy on the eyes. To my ears, the sound play back thru the rear on board speaker is excellently clear. Although this is touted as a recorder for musicians, I think it works excellently as a voice recorder and when capturing the sounds of birds and other wildlife.
