    5-0 out of 5 stars RIGHT from the start
    Seldom have I been so pleased with a purchase!

    UNLIKE the Microtek scanner I previously owned that gave me nothing but aggravation from the git-go, I loaded the software, plugged the Epson 4990 in with the included USB cable and, using Photoshop as the platform, IMMEDIATELY scanned an 8 x 10 page of medium format negatives successfully.Eyeballing the colors, I did not think ANY correction was needed.I had NO PROBLEMS loading the software or with anything else.

    I subsequently read the CD contained instructions and found that I had failed to use the 8 x 10 transparent media placement guide.It worked ANYWAY!

    This scanner is particularly suited for "serious" amateur and professional photographers.It comes with negative holders for 35mm, 120 and 4 x 5 sheet film.In addition, as noted above, it will also scan the whole 8 x 10 inch area so you can do proof sheets from your transparent negative file pages.

    I also scanned a music CD cover and liner, using Photoshop to convert the liner to black and white, and a 4 x 6 color photo.The scanner worked perfectly on all.The resolution of the four to six point type of the CD liner was crisp.This was a scan as a reflective image and NOT using OCR software.

    I have only had it for a week and will update this review once I've tried its OCR capabilities. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, it does have pause, cue, and review during playback
    A previous reviewer said this recorder is "not good for transcribing" because it lacks pause and review functions. This is incorrect on both counts.

    During playback, the Stop button acts as a pause button. If you press Stop and then press Play again, it will continue playback from where you paused.

    To review a section without rewinding all the way to the beginning, hold down the Rewind button. As long as you hold it down, it will continue backing up, playing little pieces of the audio as it goes to help you find your place. Similarly, you can fast forward (cue) by holding down the FF button.

    Pages 25 and 26 of the manual describe these playback functions.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST voice recorder there is, but where's the remote?
    I am one of the world's biggest voice recorder users.My life has practically revolved around them daily for the past 8 years.This recorder has superior quality in every way to every recorder I've used - and I've used every major brand.One thing to note though: there was a remote pictured here, where is it?There's no mention of it on the packaging, but it is mentioned in the manual.It sure would make for icing on the cake, but it shouldn't be pictured.However, mine came with a great condenser mic in the package, which I wasn't expecting.Tip:

    4-0 out of 5 stars works like a charm

    The Olympus DM-10 Digital Voice Recorder works like a charm, recorded lectures clearly with almost no static and minimum background sound. The only downside to this great recorder is its incredibly small memory, I mean come on Olympus, a 64 MG memory is obsolete in 2005. This recorder records 2hr of high quality sound, or 22hr of poor. I just record the HQ and transfer the file to my computer after each time I use it. I wish this devise had a way to upgrade memory. The software is cheap and of no use, if using XP, don't bother installing it, windows will recognize the driver automatically. The dm-10 is also an mp3 player, though only 60min of music can be uploaded; it plays adequately wma and mp3s.
    In conclusion, great devise, unreasonably small memory.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I use it to capture my rhymes
    Yo dawgs, I'm a rapper.
    I am always kickin' sweet rhymes when I'm drivin home.
    Before I got this mic I was always feelin alone.
    No hand to write, no dictation.
    My rhymes are so phat, give me a donation!
    I'll buy this recorder, maybe 1 or 2,
    I'll make the rhymes stick, they be tight as glue.
    Word to my ladies, word to my homies.
    Ain't got no flow, go eat some bologna!
    Keep it on the downlow, this product is the bomb.
    If J-Zee finds out about it, it won't be long.
    Every rapper will be sportin' a blinged out voice recorder,
    they be practicing their flows durring Law and Order........SVU style dawgs!

    5-0 out of 5 stars LINE IN recording issue, andBye Bye Sony
    If you want to use a good external microphone (USUALLY STEREO) or record from external source using the micro jack as LINE IN, and don't want the automatic SHQ setting, just use a 3.5 stereo to mono adapter (both channels are merged) and VOILA, a lot of selectable good quality (HQ or SP) recording time.
    About the recorder. . . sorry for my other ones (SONY) but ever since I got the DM-20, only use it. The difference (quality of recordings) is awesome. Bye Sony, welcome Olympus.
    Ahhh. . .and as a Macintosh user... bye Sony, welcome Olympus (again). Tired and frustrated of trying unsuccessfuly to use Digital Voice Editor via Virtual PC. Thanks Olympus on behalf the rest of Us.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great except for the batteries
    I use the recorder in college to record lectures and classes, and I have been extremely satisfied with the quality and ability of the DM 20. I have classes in rooms as large as 40' x 20' and record on HQ mode. My Prof's range from the screamer to the mumbler and even at 30' the recorder picks up the mumbler clearly, (after I turn the noise reduction feature to high). I was going to buy the DM 10, but 8 hours of high quality recording won the day over the price difference. I would strongly recommend the DM series to everyone.

    The reason I didn't give five stars is simple: the batteries. Regular batteries last about a week for me; I use the recorder about five hours a day everyday. So it's new batteries every week or rechargeable batteries. I bought rechargeable batteries and a charger but that adds $35 to the price of the unit. If the DM cradle recharged the batteries, it would be a big plus and I would have given 5 stars.

    The battery problem is more a minor nuisance than a real annoyance. Overall, the recorder is amazing at picking up voices at distance and capturing it into a high quality recording. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

    4-0 out of 5 stars very nice
    I recently ordered olympus digital voice recorder DM20 from amazon.com. it was the cheapest price after compairing it to tons of stores. it was shipped the same day i placed the order and with Free shipping i receieved it in 6days. overall i was very satisfied with Amazon's service. DM20 itself is really good, very light and compact. the recording was clear and i was able to download a 2hr recorded file in less than 5sec. I had some trouble with the software in the begining, i was not able to download the files but after calling Olympus tech support, i was able to resolve that issue very quickly. i read one review where there was a complain about the pause time allowed during recording. while recording if you need to pause for somereason, the recorder has a 10min pause, after that it will release the pause. it was a concern for me since i record lectures and most of the time professor either goes off topic, or takes a break and it would be a waste of time to keep recording in situations like these. i was able to get around that by pausing the recording for 8 min and then releasing it for 2 sec and then again pausing it, this increased the time for pause to more than 10 min. i have found the recorder to be very helpful but at a close range to the speaker, i have not yet tried it from a longer distance. the cradle cannot be used to recharge the battery, in my opinion the recorder would be perfect if it included this feature. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Probably OK for routine home useage, but I just replaced it!
    I have owned one of these shredders for about a year.I am an individual active realtor working from home and have a lot of things to shred.It has proved to be totally inadequate for my needs.I oil it very often with canola oil (per the instruction manual) at least every time I empty the receptacle bin.But it still jams very frequently.It doesn't handle the listed volume at all.You can only really put 2 or 3 sheets through at a time, and it still jams often.I have gotten the tweezers out for the last time on this shredder!Also, you can't run it for more that about 10 minutes continuously without it shutting itself down for at least 20 minutes to cool down.I just replaced it with the Fellowes C-120C.I just received it today and am really impressed with the difference.The PS80C-2 is probably fine if you don't do much volume.The design is very convenient, and it fits very conveniently under a desk.But be sure to oil it OFTEN!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't expect Fellowes to honor the warranty
    I have had my PS80C-2 for a little over 2 years.My cutterhead supposedly had a 20 year warranty.I regularly (every shredding session) oil the cutters with canola oil (recommended in the owner's manual) and my useage is well below the claimed duty rating.Recently, the unit began to jam more frequently and the shreds started exiting as a single mass rather than as loose shreds.I called customer support and they had me inspect the bottom of the cutterhead for broken or missing plastic fingers.Several were missing.Even though these fingers are an integral part of the cutterhead and the cutter head won't function without them, Fellowes claims that they are not part of the cutterhead and that they are not covered by warranty.Still worse, they are not an available part so my only recourse (according to Fellowes) is to buy a new shredder!Fellowes self-serving definition as to what is part of the "cutterhead" and what is not is at best dishonest.Don't buy a Fellowes shredder for the warranty as they will define themselves out of honoring it.I did get a couple of years of use out of it though.So, if you can get a reconditioned unit really inexpensively, it might be worth a shot as a disposable product.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fellows Paper Shredder
    While the waste can had a minor crack, which I fixed,due to delivery company. The head unit works well and it was recvd sooner than expected, by abot 2 weeks. I am very satisified with the unit and the quick shipping.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!
    This shredder is excellent. I had previously used a very cheap strip cut model. I was used to seperating, unfolding, and all sorts of preparation. I generally accumulate paper to be shredded and then it's a job to shred everything that's piled up. I had quite a pile when I bought this shredder, including a couple of credit cards. I fed it stacks and stacks of paper at a time including some staples. Everything went right through and became tiny unrecognizeable confetti. I did not experience any overheating or jamming. I would say that I ran it for 15 minutes or so continuosly. The basket is easy to slide out and empty and you can see the level through the sight window. This is the shredder to get for your home or home office. I wound up getting it at Office Max for the same price as Amazon.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for personal use
    The Fellowes PS80C-2 has worked extremely well for everyone in my household.It is quickly handles credit cards, staples, and stuffed envelopes with no problems or complaints.It shreds everything completely and compactly.The waste bin is easy to open and empty and maintenance is a breeze.For us, it has been well worth the price. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality Fax and Laser Printer
    I purchased this item because I needed a good fax machine and got a great bonus with it being a laser black & white printer also!Inkjet fax machines cost a fortune in replacement cartridges and the Canon has a very good laser replacement cartridge at a good price as it gets 2,700 to 3,000 prints per cartridge.The quality is beautiful since it is a laser.Set up was very simple and the prints from my computer are professional.I also utilized the distinctive ring features so I know a fax is coming in versus a regular phone call and don't pick it up. I highly recommend purchasing it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Poor Phone
    The phone on this unit was an after thought. No caller ID and no handsfree calling. Also the first time you dial, you'll thinkg the unit is broken as it oddly switches the tone from the handset to the unit's speaker.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer
    My fax and printer went out on the same day (what a week!) and I replaced my plain paper HP fax and my HP 1100 printer with this Canon L80.

    I use it for everything! No problems, easy setup, clear faxes. After 2 months of constant use as both a fax and a printer, I have no problems with this unit.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great little machine
    I've owned the Canon L80 for about a month now.I find it to be a great laser fax machine, and it also doubles as a fine copier for small jobs when collating and a flatbed copier are not needed.For my small office needs,this Canon works perfectly for me. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable price.
    With amazon.com price of $20.05 for this printpack, cost per print is just unbeatable, whether from a lab or from competition such as HP.Print quality from Picturemate deluxe is nothing less than amazing, Epson has a winner in this printer and printpack.

    5-0 out of 5 stars picturebug
    I love my epson picturemate.It prints great pictures.I prefer glossy prints so that is a plus for me.I have a Canon A60 digital and it is so easy to download the pictures on my computer and then I can edit them (with any software) and then just print them out.I have been working on a scrapbook and it is so convenient to be able to just take a picture and then print it right away.The only drawback is that it is rather slow.If you have taken a lot of pics it can be quite time consuming to print them all at one time.I try to download them into different folders by date/event or whatever and then just print a few at a time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Top Tier Product Once You Get the Hang
    I Agree with "Great Prints", PictureMate produces top quality prints at about half the price of its competitors. Look at the price of the refill packs for the competition and pay attention to the number of prints per box, you will find that they cost between 50 and 60 cents per prints. That is where your true cost, and true savings accrue. PictureMate is 29 cents per print. The quality, as always from Epson is Outstanding. One thing that I noticed is that the default setting causes a photo to print in 8 to 9 minutes. If you go into the Print Settings and uncheck the "Enhance Fine Details" Checkbox, the PictureMate will produce a fantastic, beautiful, and durable print in about 2 to 3 minutes, which is acceptable.

    In response to another reviewer about selecting prints, I agree that it is not easy to select prints when printing from card, I either remember the number or you can use most cameras to mark images for printing in camera. I too print from computer and this is definitely the way to go.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Lab Quality Prints At Home
    I am a semi-pro photographer and was looking for an easy way to get proof images and I found it with the Epson Picturemate. The prints cost roughly the same as from my local lab, about 29 cents each, and the quality is sharper and better. You can connect it directly to your computer or print straight from a variety of media cards. The only down side is there is no way to monitor and pick which image you want off the card without first printing a contact sheet.
    Since I print from my computer this is really not a problem. The printer is small and portable. Epson claims the prints will last 100 years or more. ... Read more

    The Canon glossy paper is great! I've printed out over 600 4x6 pictures on my Canon i960 printer and the pictures are much better than taking them to any photo lab. I have used nothing but the Canon glossy photo paper and certainly have been quite pleased with the paper not to mention flawless printing on the i960. I certainly recommend the paper and the printer and the price on amazom for the paper is better then any store I've been to.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best paper for your Canon Printer!
    Do not pass up this photo paper. If you own a canon printer. this is the best paper for it. The quality of the paper is better than most professional paper such as kodak or fuji.

    What really makes the difference in your printed photos is the quality of the paper. I own the Canon IP4000 printer and the photos are better than getting them developed at the lab. This paper is quite thick whcih makes the photos you print very professional. Combine editing software like Microsoft PictureIt! and you have a winning combination!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Almost like the Photo Paper Pro
    I have used both this photo paper and the photo paper pro, and i really cant tell a difference. I am using a canon mp730 (great multifunction printer if you are in the market btw) and the colors come out crisp and vibrant. The only thing you might notice between this and the really high end stuff is the texture of the print. It seems that this paper is ever-so slightly rougher than the really good stuff. If you are just making regular prints to share with family, I would get this stuff...if you are using it for professional shots or something that you would like to keep for a long time, i would get the higher end stuff.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant color
    I did a few test prints with this paper on my Canon i960 phoyo printer with some pics of the kids and they looked great. Then I printed a close-up of a stunning mum flower that I shot on slide film and had scanned onto CD. I could not believe the brilliant color, saturation and detail in the print!!! It's mind-blowing. I might take the slide to a local printer to see what kind of print they do by comparison, but I give some major kudos for both the printer and this paper. Wowee. I am going to blow through a lot of paper this way!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stellar Photos
    This paper is absolutely amazing with my Canon printer!I was surprised to find that the color was accurate, the prints very clear, and the paper was dry once it came out of my printer.I even "test smudged" the paper and there was not one run, smudge, or ink left on my fingers (unlike my first attempt on the crappy generic paper)I'm definitely reordering this stuff for my photo printing needs :) ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars "the coolest" way to get junk "on the market"
    Don't make the same mistake I did! I signed up for one of those get-iRiver-free "offers" that are continually being posted here.

    Within one day, I received over 200 spam emails and 15 telemarketing calls. What a pain. I guess there really is something to the saying "you can't get something for nothing".

    I hope everybody here will learn from my extremely bad experience and avoid these ridiculous pyramid schemes.

    5-0 out of 5 stars coolest item out on the market!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Before you decide to buy...
    I've done extensive research in trying to find the perfect portable video player.From all the magazine reviews, sites like CNET and suchforth, customer reviews, and hands-on experience, I decided to purchase the MSI MEGA View 566.The MSI Mega View was one of TechTV's finalists for most innovative products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2005).If the features of the iRiver PMP appeal to you, consider taking a look at MEGA View 566 (Check out the product page for more info).It has almost identical features at approximately the same price.

    Like the iRiver, the MEGA View 566 can play mp3, wma, wav, divx (avi), mpg, and your digital photos.It has a built-in FM tuner, voice recorder, an A/V Input and Output with composite video to record video from TV or other sources and so you can view files on your television set.You can rest the player on the tripod that is included.Unlike the iRiver, an extra battery is included for more playtime on those longer trips!Since playing with the unit a few weeks ago, I can't get enough!

    If you're still researching for the perfect player, take a minute and check out the MSI MEGA View 566.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Annoying!Avoid, avoid, avoid!
    I was very excited to get this player as a holiday gift.I was looking forward to watching the TV shows I recorded using Windows Media Center edition on it.But this turns out to be impossible - the PMP-120 runs a Linux operating system and does NOT convert recorded TV files (*.dvr-ms) and moreover it won't sync with Windows Media Player 10, which would in fact convert such files.

    I spent five hours trying to set it up to watch TV and only learned this sorry fact through extensive Googling.Certainly I could not learn this from the embarassing manual or from the poor automated help service at iriver itself, nor from the 800 number (I spent 45 minutes on hold then gave up).

    Apparently the PMC-120 (PMC not PMP) is in fact Windows Media Player compatible, but at this point I'm not sure I'll trust another Iriver product, because their support is so poor.

    Stay far, far away from this!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Finally a PVP that I can tolerate
    I had bought Creative PVP sometime back, but had to return it bcoz it uses Microsoft Media Player. Wrong media player choice. It makes the whole process of uploading media very tiresome and slow. So i returned the Creative.I checked iRiver at the store and found that it did NOT use Windows Media Player. SoI bought it. I have been playing with it over the past couple of weeks. It provides a DIVX codec software and associated media converter software, that makes importing videos easy. Use the Portable Media Center DIVX profile, when coverting videos.I use the AVI format to upload videos onto the player. It is also a full featured mp3 player, voice recorder and a fm tuner. The speakers are little bit low in volume, so have to use headphones in noisy situations. The fit and finish of the hardware is not as nice as Creative. The software has some spelling mistakes such as "FM Tunner" instead of "FM Tuner". But at the end of day, it does what it is supposed to do. And it provides all the software and cables right out of the box.I am in process of creating a PC based DVR solution, to capture and record live TV. iRiver will then become my portable video system. iRiver can also send video signal's to TVs through a provided port and cables.Provides USB Master port capabilities to interact with other USB port capable devices, without using a PC. It comes with a nice hard case, that U can use to carry it around and to even prop it up while watching it on an airplane. Battery is removable type, so u can buy an extra one, if U are on a really long flight. PVP space is still evolving fast, so expect to see lots more new models coming out in next couple of months. If like me, u want one right away, iRiver is an reasonable choice. You will need some experience in media conversion to successfully import videos in a watchable format. Experiment with video sizing, audio mixing etc till u get it right.iRiver has also released another PVP that uses Windows Media Player. Do not buy that, unless you have a full featured Windows Media Center PC.

    An update to the review. Using Pinnacle Dazzle DVC 80 Video capture device (USB based) and excellent Pinnacle Video Capture Software, I have been able to successfully capture TV output and import into iRiver. I had to reconvert the Dazzle AVI output files to iRiver AVI using the iRiver media converter software. Now I have a complete portable video solution. I am a bit surprised it all actually worked. I was even able to capture HD channel outputs from my DISH TV satellite box using the AV components in the back of the satellite receiver. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get this if you're thinking of getting a Shuffle
    I bought an iPOD shuffle for 100 bucks, and I tried to convince myself afterwards that it was a good idea.I finally came to my senses and bought the muvo slim 512, selling the shuffle on ebay.I can't believe how much better this is.There is NOTHING to complain about.If you forced me to complain, maybe I'd just say that the headphones that it comes with aren't the best.I can't think of anything else.Definitely buy this if you're considering the Shuffle!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not Even one full song!
    I boght this a month ago and it was horrible!After i listened to one song it just crashed! It was one day old, i was very careful, and it took me three hours to download a few songs!Skip protection?Never!It was a waste of $150 dollars!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good all-around value
    My evaluation of the MuVo Slim is similar to most of the others who have rated it highly. There are a couple of additional items I'll mention however;

    The unit has a replaceable rechargable battery. Listening to the player while I'm working I'd go through a battery about every two days with the AA or AAA battery players. But Li-Ion batteries have a limited life. With this unit I can replace the battery if it fails after a couple of years instead of dumping the, otherwise good, player.

    The battery is very thin allowing the player to be much thinner than an AA/AAA player. (0.3")

    The leather case is much higher quality than I expected. It doesn't need to be removed for any normal function. The only thing you can't do with the case in place is open the battery door. Like a previous reviewer, I noticed the battery door seems flimsy but it is well protected by the case and most people will never open it again after they initially install the battery. The only minor drawback to the case is that it pretty much doubles the thickness of the unit.

    The player is exactly the same size as a business card. I slipped one of my cards into the case behind the player for identification in case it ever gets "lost." Without the headphones plugged in the cased player looks like a classy business card case. It carries well in a front shirt pocket and is small and solid enough to carry in a front pants pocket.

    Microdrives are great for capacity but, being mechanical spinning disks, have very little shock resistance. A drop to even a carpeted floor is often fatal. Flash memory, being electronic, does a lot better but is limited in size. Don't expect to carry your entire music library around with you.

    The earbuds are as good as most earbuds but if you're going to listen to the unit a lot you're going to want to get a headset.

    Overall, for the price, the MuVo Slim is a hard unit to beat!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Poor quality control
    Didn't work when I got it. The files sytem is fine so can be used as an expensive flash memory. The lithium battery is changed so it is not the battery. Needed player for trip so got another one without a quality control problem. This MuVo goes on the bone pile.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best for price
    The three things that sold me on this product were:
    1) USB 2.0 interface - fast transfers

    2) Included Rechargeable Lithium Battery - which recharges off the USB port on your computer (3 hours for first charge, roughly 1/2 that for recharging completely afterwards).

    3) 512mb of storage for a hundred dollars

    PROS: Compared to any mp3 player you could find at your local Best Buy, or other store, this product blows them out of the water - and for much less.

    CONS: The FM reception is not long-range, don't expect to pull in a FM station 45-50 miles away -its best suited for urban 30 mile range.
    You will need to buy a seperate charger if you will need to charge the unit away from a computer ($19-29).

    For those that would like to store audio books or VERY LARGE amounts of mp3's on their portable player, look elsewhere - you will only get roughly 100-130 songs on a 512mb flash player, just remember Flash players are FAR more durable and shock-resistant than microdrive players. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Almost Excellent Liberation
    With many thanks to Book Fan for his very helpful review, I went ahead and purchased this very versatile AM/FM radio recorder/MP3 player from Pogo. I must say, I am very happy that I did. I would have given the radio a five star rating, but due to a few minor but fixable bugs in the firmware, as well as the cryptically written user's manual, I could not. Hopefully Pogo will take the hint from these reviews and strive to propel this amazing little device into Five-stardom territory.

    First, I should tell you that I'm a high tech gadget guy (degree in computer science, etc.), and love devices like this. On the other hand, my wife is very gadget/tech-toy shy, and is very reluctant to change her ways, once she finds something that works well for her. Even so, after I sat down with the sorry excuse of a manual, the Pogo radio, and a cup of coffee, I studied and familiarized myself completely with the radio's operation. I then transferred my understanding of the radio's basic operation to my wife. To my surprise and delight, she quickly threw away her cassette players, recorders and tapes, and went out on her daily walks with only this very handy, lightweight radio.

    I purchased the Pogo radio with 256MB internal memory and a separate 1GB SD memory card, since my wife records many hours of an AM radio show every late night/early morning. And because the radio's USB/PC interface doesn't enable direct access to the radio's external memory card, I also had to purchase a USB to SD card adapter to upload the resulting MP3 recordings to my PC's hard drive. I should not have had to make this purchase, and believe the ability to upload from the radio's external memory card should be considered an item for a future firmware bug fix by Pogo's programmers.

    Another bug fix that Pogo should consider for this potentially excellent device should be to simplify the resulting filename for the recorded MP3s. As Book Fan stated, After the shows are recorded from the radio, they wind up in the "Voice" mode file list with their titles looking like very long, scrolling, binary bytes of data, instead of something looking like English. It should be a very simple matter to modify the title format into one with the month/date/day shown more intelligibly for the novice user.

    The AM and FM reception of this unit is surprisingly good in our location, even better than the much larger radio we were using to record to my wife's cassette tapes. This is quite a pleasant surprise for us, since we can now have much more room available on our hutch shelves, with us now only needing this one very small device rather than a large cassette tape recorder and large AM/FM radio. The AM/FM to MP3 recordings are very clear, even with the voice sampling rate at the lowest setting. This low sample rate sampling also increases the number of 4 hour shows that we can record in a row without having to erase or upload them to the PC for storing, burning onto CD or e-mailing (as long as it's done legally, of course).

    The unit is so light (unlike the iPOD) that you can easily carry it hung about your neck with the included lanyard, or in your shirt pocket. You'll hardly notice it's there, except for the high quality sound that will be playing in your ears from the very high quality ear buds that come with the unit.

    Do yourself a favor and go ahead with this purchase. My wife and I are happy we did, as it has liberated us from making any more purchases of messy space-occupying cassette tapes and recorders. She really loves it, and we believe you will too!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful little radio timeshifter; crufty interface
    I've been very happy with the capabilities and performance of this radio recorder, and I would give it 5 stars if the interface (and manual) were better.This product occupies a unique niche, at this time of writing, it is the only stand-alone (non-computer) solution to timeshifting radio that I could discover.Finally I can listen to Ira Glass and Terry Gross and Neal Conan and Science Friday and Elvis Mitchell (public radio geek shows), even though I'm busy when they're on.

    It is basically like a VCR for radio, allowing you to timeshift radio shows that you want to listen too later, saving them as MP3 files, with a choice of kbps.You can record onto internal memory, or onto removable flash memory so it is easy to move things recorded to other computers.(There is also a USB interface, but that gives access only to the internal memory). Oh, it is a perfectly respectible MP3 player also.

    The sound quality seems good at the higher sampling rates e.g. 256kbps (if there is a good signal).Some of my stations have poor signals where I live, so I record non-musical shows at a lower rate and use the hi-cut equalizer setting to reduce the hiss and static to listen.

    But this little box has a few other tricks up its sleeve.You can play back at different speeds, 0.5x, 0.7x, 1.3x and 1.5x.I regularly use 1.3x to listen to spoken PBS shows a little faster than real time.And the 0.7x is good for slowing down someone who is hard to understand.(Fun to do this also with music.)You can fast forward over ads, you get to hear little bursts of sound as it passes over and when the sound quality changes you know you're back to the show.

    Also, it will take mic or line in and save it as an MP3 file.This allows you to, say, use the headphone jack of your tv and timeshift the audio of shows you want to listen to later.

    The box itself is about the size of a deck of cards, and is pretty lightweight (feels like it contains air), so it is easy to carry it around and use it as a portable source of music and spoken radio.It weighs much less than my iPod.

    The interface is crusty, the buttons are numerous and do different things depending on what mode you are in.It is too complex to play with while driving (I pull over to adjust playback).It is also a mystery sometimes under which folder a recording is going to appear, and it doesn't match what the manual says.The file names are long number salads - you can figure out what part of the names are the date, which are the time, etc., but they are hard to read, especially since when you select a filename, it becomes so long that it doesn't fit on the screen and then starts scrolling.The filenames and folder names should be better done.

    The manual is like reading a parts list with descriptions (gently translated from Korean); with few exceptions everything is there, but it is not well organized or cogent.I had to go back and forth through the manual and glean new info each time (I'm a computer person well accustomed to lots of complex interfaces).It could really use a "getting started" section.

    All in all, I'm getting a lot of use and pleasure out of this product, and find it a great supplement to my iPod.I would like to see a combination product with a better interface design. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fellowes PS60C-2 Cross Cut Paper Shredder
    This is the second Fellowes shredder I have purchased. Like the first one, this unit failed after about 1 1/2 years of use. Asothers have reported, my machine will only work in reverse. No complaints on its use, when it was working it was fantastic. Now that it is out of service, it is very inconvenient.

    Spending over $100 for this unit, the warranty should be longer than one year. Since the blades are not the issue, and repairing it is too costly, I now have to buy yet another one again.

    I'll need to compare costs and services before buying another unit. Another Fellowes product is in question at this time!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Nice While It Lasted
    This shredder worked pretty much as it said it would in the literature. It is a step up from the low end "personal" shredders that can only take a few pages at a time and can't run very long without needing to rest.

    Aside from a basket that filled pretty quickly (you have to redistribute the shredded paper as it naturally forms a heap right below the blades), it did the job for me.

    But here I am 17 months later and it is semi-dead; it only runs in reverse and the operating lights are dim. I'm past the one-year warranty and only the blades are warranted for longer than that. It just dropped dead out of the blue and definitely wasn't overused. For a shredder that cost close to $100 I expect a LOT longer operating life.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it for the warranty!
    I have had my PS80C-2 for a little over 2 years.My cutterhead supposedly had a 20 year warranty.I regularly (every shredding session) oil the cutters with canola oil (recommended in the owner's manual) and my useage is well below the claimed duty rating.Recently, the unit began to jam more frequently and the shreds started exiting as a single mass rather than as loose shreds.I called customer support and they had me inspect the bottom of the cutterhead for broken or missing plastic fingers.Several were missing.Even though these fingers are an integral part of the cutterhead and the cutter head won't function without them, Fellowes claims that they are not part of the cutterhead and that they are not covered by warranty.Still worse, they are not an available part so my only recourse (according to Fellowes) is to buy a new shredder!Fellowes self-serving definition as to what is part of the "cutterhead" and what is not is at best dishonest.Don't buy a Fellowes shredder for the warranty as they will define themselves out of honoring it.I did get a couple of years of use out of it though.So, if you can get a reconditioned unit really inexpensively, it might be worth a shot as a disposable product.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Shredder for Home Office
    I am very happy this shredder's performance and price (really great price!)I have been using it just about six months on a regular basis, any thing with sensitive information is on its diet!Even old credit cards!

    I do follow the guidlines of unfolding bulky material and overuse and it performs like a shredding champ. I also avoid sending staples through it, I think it can handle them if I missed one, but don't want it to dull the blades sooner than nessary either.Glad that Amazon has this product available!

    I have owned two Fellowes paper shredders. The second Fellowes shredder is the P400C-2. The only problem I have with Fellowes Paper shredders is that each Fellowes Paper shredder that I have owned has quit working maybe a year or a year and a half at the longest after I bought it. It cost too much to repair, so I had to buy another one that quit working about a year after I bought it.
    I am now forced to buy another paper shredder but this time it will Never be a Fellowes Paper shredder. Ever again ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Most economical laser toner for small business home office.
    I Have been using Brother laser printers which use this cartridge for about 7 years. GREAT PRODUCT. In fact the Brother multi function machine I currently use is a (now discontinued) MFC 9600. It has now been replaced with the nearly identical MFC 9700. I have had it for some 5 years with regular use and it works flawlesly. I use about 3 or 4 TN460 cartridges per year. Brother seems to be about the only manufacturer which provides a decent economical value for laser toner. Yes their printers/multi function machines cost a little more initially, but, do the long term math. You pay dearly in toner costs down the road with other better known or more highly publisized brands. I am continually surprised when I inquire at any office supply store about the cost per print or cost of operation of any given laser printer. The sales people are baffled, and never seem to know. This to me is THE question to ask. And, with the cost a some excellent full featured heavy duty Brother multifunction machines (fax scanner laser printer) very close to $300, it really does not make any sense to buy anything else if you are a small business home office with fairly regular laser/fax usage. Yes you might get a laser printer for $100 less. But after a few cartridges, you will wish you had a Brother using this economical cartridge.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good product, great price
    I've come back time and again to Amazon.com for this toner cartridge. Their price has been the lowest I could find anywhere time after time. You can feel confident if you purchase it here, you're getting very close to the rock-bottom price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars very nice
    No problems with these, and great price at amazon.

    5-0 out of 5 stars high yield -
    The cartridge is easy to install and lasts a long time... haven't had it botch any print run in two years of operation, in fact, the brother printer that uses it, just hummmms along tackling any job my small business needs... a winner! and the price at amazon is a winner, too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's Ink.
    It's ink. It's great. What more can I say?
    Actually, Brother is pretty good about estimating how many pages will print before the ink runs out. This cartridge is a much better value than the TN430 as you get twice the output for maybe a 30% increase in cost.

    Enjoy your laser printer! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Still better off with separate units, but a nice toy
    The Canon MF8170c is the very first AIO (All-In-One) fax-scan-copy-printer to feature color laser printing at its pricepoint and without the 500 lb bulk of a standalone copier/printer.While you can probably both save money and increase quality and speed with separate units doing the same task, after buying my first AIO HP OfficeJet G85 several years ago I was hooked and promised myself never to go back to the copy-by-scan-and-print method.The color print speed, noise, and lack of certain features are worth knocking a star off, but if you can afford it and don't need certain higher-end features its well worth it for home office use.

    The MF8170c is a heavy (ships at 106 lbs - 2-day shipping on this would pay for an Amazon Prime membership!), big (25" x 20" x 20"), relatively complicated looking unit but is a relative pussycat to get going by USB - just install drivers from the CD.Ethernet connections weren't as easy; it and my Netgear WGR614 router didn't like each other at first, but once I figured the problem was the printer didn't have an IP address, the installation software let me solve that problem and I was off and running.

    B&W print quality is in general quite crisp, color print quality very good and both well above that of the HP 4650n I used at my prior job.This is not a photo printer, however; I found using both copy and glossy paper my G85 substantially outperformed it even when the MF8170c was set in photo mode.Fax and copy functionality and quality were ok, although it feels like my old G85 had more features.Where this lacks is in scanning.Scan quality is actually pretty good, but you can't scan through the network and have to have a USB connection (and drivers).Annoying.

    Where I knock a star off (and would probably knock a second off if it weren't a unique item) is three fold.First, no power switch means even in energy saver mode this has fans going; it's not hugely loud (compared to my late lamented airplane-engine-sounding 15-year-old Epson ActionLaser II) but it's annoying and takes forever to turn off and warm up.Second, for a 2005 printer color prints like its 2000 at a rated 4 ppm after a 1 minute warmup.This isn't surprising given Canon quietly skimped on RAM.The printer has only a measly 24MB, a fact convieniently omitted from the available technical specifications and one I only found out about by looking around on the web browser based internal monitor.Finally, I really don't like the fact that I can't buy a duplex (dual-sided) printing collator, although the design makes me hope there should be some accessories coming out shortly.

    If you have more than 2-3 people who need to do routine color printing or scanning this isn't your machine.I'd pick up one of the networked color laser Lexmarks and a good monochrome AIO unit instead.However, for home office use this is state of the art.I like its large bulk in the corner of my home office even with its limitations.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Review of Canon's New MF8170c All in One Copier
    This unit is so new, it is hard to find in any stores, much less set up as a demo. I bought sight unseen based on features and Canon's good name. I was not disappointed.

    Assembly took about one hour, including installing 5 toner cartridges (1 large black and 4 color toners). Software set up went perfectly. The manual and instruction cards were very well written.

    The first color copy on plain paper looked really good. Better than what my Epson 2200 color inkjet would produce. I had some old glossy laser paper and then printed on that. Not a big improvement over plain. Images are a bit grainy and some banding in large color areas. I then printed a digital photo off my computer. Not a vast improvement over the copy function image. Same results where plain paper looks great (for a plain paper copy) and the glossy image was not near as good as decent inkjet can produce. I have not scanned or faxed, yet with this machine.

    Final thoughts: the unit takes a long time to make the first color copy, probably a full 60 seconds. The unit has NO OFF switch, just an energy saver button. Hence, the unit is always on. The unit will sit for hours after copying making fan noises. Don't sleep in the same room as this unit. Much later, it goes into true sleep mode and stays quiet. Even making black and white copies takes a considerable amount of time for the first copy. Images in B&W rival those of my HP Laserjet 4000--a machine with reportedly better resolution. Don't expect photo quality from this laser copier. You will need a good inkjet for that. But for business or home letters with small graphics or small photos in a newsletter, this unit does an amazing job. I will sell my HP 4000 but keep my Epson ink jet. ... Read more

    Buyer beware! This product (ML-1210D3) was shipped with an obviously used packaging -- with the UPS tracking number for the original purchaser still in the box! This is a scam sale!!!

    Don't buy this item! No wonder, Amazon is selling it for much less than the normal price of a NEW item.

    Very disappointed, ramida

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great toner cartridge for Samsung ML-1430 printer
    Although the specs don't show that this works with the Samsung ML-1430 printer it does. The ML-1210D3 toner cartridge is Genuine Samsung and new and works great. It works for printers ML-1010, ML-1430, ML-1020M, ML-1210, ML-1220M, ML-1250, IZZI Lasor plus II.

    Amazon was great in that the shipment was timely and the charge did not show on my charge card until I received the product.

    And I got free shipping with I believe 'Super Saver' by Amazon.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Printer
    I have had my ML-1210 printer for over a year now. I am an insurance appraiser/investigator and print over 4000 pages a month. The printer has performed flawlessly. This was the best investment of $$$$$ I could have made. The toner/drum is (with a little work)refillable with Okidata refill cartridges. I replace the cartridge at about 20,000 pages....Still the price for the drum here at Amazon is $$$$ less than elsewhere. I am looking to upgrade to the ML-1710 soon but will hate to part with this one.....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works as designed
    I have a Samsung ML-1430 (great little printer) and this toner cartridge was easy to install and it works as expected.Samsung isn't a big name in laser printers, so replacement cartridges aren't as readily available in local stores as it is for HP and some of the more established brands so, once again, it's Amazon to the rescue.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Printer - Highly recommended
    This printer works great. I bought it to use in my laboratory and it's worked perfectly for over a year. It prints super fast: 15 - 17 pages per minute, and the text is always pristine and clear. Well worth it! ... Read more


    16. Griffin iTalk Voice Recorder for iPod

    Amazon.com Review

    In its bid to make the iPod the handiest device on the planet (right up there with the Swiss Army knife), Griffin created the iTalk voice recorder, a combination microphone/speaker that attaches to your iPod's headphone and remote outputs. Griffin suggests using the iTalk for any number of tasks, from recording personal memos and interviews to archiving class lectures to listening to an audiobook on the speaker without wearing your headphones. And because the iPod offers such a large storage capacity, iTalk users can literally record thousands of hours of voice audio without running out of memory, making the device far more convenient than a portable cassette recorder.

    Design and Setup
    Griffin has been designing Apple accessories since 1992, so it's no stranger to the sleek styling encouraged by Steve Jobs and crew. And the iTalk--with its smooth, white housing and slick, silver-colored speaker--fits in perfectly. It also pays tribute to the Apple ethos by requiring no setup: just plug it in and start recording (the recording functions appear automatically on the iPod screen). Once the device is connected, a user relies on the click wheel to record, pause, play, save, and delete files. The iPod then stores the files in a Voice Memos folder within the Extras menu. Each time you sync your iPod to iTunes, the files transfer into an iTunes playlist also called Voice Memos, where you can listen to them on your computer or transfer them to other multimedia programs (they're saved as WAV files).

    The iTalk includes a couple of features that help it stand out above competitors' products. The first is an automatic gain control, which instinctively adjusts the signal level to achieve the best possible recording. The second is a multifunction pass-through jack located on top of the unit. This lets users plug their headphones directly into the iTalk rather than removing the device to access the iPod's headphone output. Users can also connect an external microphone to the iTalk to enjoy additional recording options. In addition, the iTalk archives the date and time of the recording--a plus for people working on date-specific material.

    Features and Performance
    At its best, the iTalk performs solidly. The recordings are clear and easy to decipher, and the microphone picks up sounds from all over the room. We tested the iTalk's microphone at distances of a few inches, a foot, 5 feet, and 20 feet, and each time it performed admirably. It also picks up TV speakers and some ambient noise, depending on the situation. Playback quality is mixed, however. It's decent through the built-in speaker when played at high volumes (the sound can be somewhat scratchy), but very good through the headphones. Anybody using the iPod to transcribe recordings should definitely use the latter, as the audio is much crisper.

    Unfortunately, the iTalk isn't always at its best. For unknown reasons, it often fails to play recordings it just made through the built-in speaker. The files play for a few seconds, and then the menu inexplicably returns to the recording screen. Occasionally, you can play the file by trying again, but other times the file stubbornly refuses to open. The same files often played just fine through the headphones, indicating that the problem originates in the speaker rather than the microphone. However, anyone using the iTalk for important recording tasks--something more than archiving grocery lists, say--should test the iTalk thoroughly to verify that the files are recording properly. Users should also be aware that the iTalk doesn't actually start recording until three or four seconds after the light turns on, which is somewhat aggravating at first, although you adjust quickly.

    The problems with the built-in speaker extended to other forms of playback as well. Griffin touted the iTalk as a great way to listen to audiobooks without headphones, but it refused to play Jon Stewart's America (the Audiobook). Many users have complained that the iTalk often locks up their iPods, especially if the iTalk is installed when the iPod turns on. We suffered through a single lockup, which required a quick reset, but didn't experience the problems described by other users. It's possible that the latest iPod software updates have resolved the freezing issues, but the glitch appears at least common enough to mention.

    The iTalk is a mixed bag overall. The concept is terrific, and when Griffin releases the next generation of iTalk, it'll likely be a great buy. But in the meantime, users should proceed with caution. If you can afford to re-record your memos on the occasions that playback fails--or if you can test the microphone to make sure the speaker is the only source of the problem--the iTalk can be quite handy. However, if reliability is a major concern, such as when recording one-time lectures or interviews or archiving song ideas, iPod owners might want to take a pass. --Rivers Janssen

    5-0 out of 5 stars Much better than these reviews suggest
    I bought this item yesterday. I needed something to record telephone conferences, meetings, interviews, things like that for my job, something that could record in digital form and where the recording could easily be transferred to a conventional home or office computer. I considered buying one of the expensive Sony voice recorders, the ones costing $90-$150, which generally seem to be of good quality. But I was intrigued by the idea of spending less than $50 to get something I could attach to my iPod (recently purchased).My only concern was that online reviews of iTalk and the Belkin device that competes with it are generally quite poor.

    I've already used the iTalk to record an hour-long teleconference with a client. It is just about perfect -- just what I was looking for and at a bargain price.The built-in speaker is highly inadequate -- you really have to use headphones with this thing to hear playback, but I don't see that as a big deal. Recording quality seems at least as good as what I've seen with Sony voice recorders.

    I suspect that many of the people giving this product a bad review are expecting too much out of the built-in speaker.

    4-0 out of 5 stars iTalk = Handy VOICE Recorder
    The iTalk recorder makes very adequate voice recordings on my 3G 40 Gig iPod. I've had no problems with freezing (or any performance issues). Before using iTalk, I read all of the reviews, and following the helpful suggestions from other users, I've had good recordings from the first.

    What's terrific about iTalk is that you can organize your recordings in iTunes. As another user mentioned, you can create playlists of related recordings that can later be burned to CD-Rom.

    Two drawbacks for me are the volume level of iTalk's speaker, which I find too low for adequate playback even at top volume on my iPod, and the lack of a carrying case to protect and identify the iTalk in my purse.

    Would I buy again? Absolutely. Would I recommend? Without reservation.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the trouble
    I purchased the iTalk to record my shows so I could send them on the internet, but I had alot of problems with my iPod that were all started by the purchase of my iTalk. Suddenly music wasn't fully playing, I had to restore my iPod to factory settings and import my music multiple times before I got it working again, when I finally got everything working, I used my iTalk to record a show and as soon as I got home and plugged it in, the troubles started again: my iTunes wouldn't read my iPod, I couldn't get anything to work, iTunes would freeze, all sorts of things, and worst of all I couldn't copy my show onto my computer when activated as a disk. Though I have a sneaking suspesion that the problems are also on account that my iPod is over a year old, none of the problems began until I recieved my iTalk. After much aggravation, I sat down to listen to my show and it turned out that my iTalk, though it sat through my entire show (6 minutes), after 3 minutes the iTalk just stop recording sound. There are many bugs to be fixed by Griffin before this product is markable. I reccomend, if you really need to record something, just get a regular mini-tape player, it will save you alot of aggravation, or if you really need it in digital format, go ahead and get a digital one for a few hundred dollars, because in the end, you really do get what you paid for; $30 is too good to be true.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth buying
    Get the Belkin mic, which is much better.The microphone on this one is low-level, playback is buzzed-out, awful.And if you use the jack--which is why I bought it, so I could record my phone interviews for my journalism work--it's even worse.I give it one star for the *idea* of having a mic jack in the first place--to my knowledge, this item is the only one to have it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars a decent toy
    i bought this for the primary purpose of recording history lectures during which i often fall asleep. so far, the iTalk voice recorder has had its good days and bad days. on the good days, it works just fine, not producing professional-quality recordings but good for its price.

    on the bad days, however, i end up missing either a big part or the entirety of the lecture. i haven't experienced lock-ups or inability to playback through the speakers, but what it would do sometimes is that it would start recording like normal, but when i check a few minutes later, the battery indicator will show up empty (although it's still running) and the timer will be set at 0, while the LED is still on and the "recording" message still flashes. and nothing is recorded at all. i don't know what i can possibly do to prevent this, except maybe test it immediately before recording for real, and be on the look-out while it's working (watching it won't help if it stops abruptly, but i want to see what happens when it stops).

    overall i give it 3 stars for cost, style, and approx 70/30 chance of smooth operation. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Recorder Could Make me a Millionaire
    The main reason I purchased the recorder is so that I could tape my professor's lectures. In fact, it worked like a charm in my Biology class this past semester. At first I didn't think the recorder would be ideal because the playback on the recorder is hard to hear. However, when I downloaded the files to my computer, the sound quality was awesome. I credit this recorder to helping me receive an A in Biology because without the precise recordings, I would have never been able to remember and write down all of the details discussed during the class.

    I'm also using the recorder to dictate a book I'm co-writing with my husband and found that this recorder works like a charm. For instance, the software works similar to a Dictaphone transcription machine because when you press the F4 key it stops playing and to restart the recorder, you simply press the F4 key again. To see a listing of the shortcut keys, simply click Tools, Function Key Settings (located on the menu bar).

    Additionally, you can set up the auto back space to rewind up to five seconds every time you stop the recorder. Simply click Tools, Set Auto Back Space, and then choose the number of seconds you want the recorder to rewind each time you stop the recorder.

    My husband and I are going to go out and buy another recorder for him so that he can use it to dictate his portion of the book that we are co-writing.

    This recorder is a great purchase. You won't regret the purchase.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Use it everyday
    My employment in the legal field often requires recording of conversations and interviews.The interviews become evidentiary in nature.
    I originally purchased the DS330 two years ago. It has been an excelent tool I use everyday.The unit developed problems after getting kicked, frozen, laid on, etc.After two years of hard abuse, it still records well, plays what it records without problems, and trasfers the information without problems.The problem it developed was a shattered lcd display.I do not blame the recorder though...it was a rough night.....
    I promptly went out and bought another as a replacement.
    It has a few really great features I have not heard mentioned by others.Every recording it makes gets a unique number assigned to it when you download it to your computer.It includes a date and time stamp for every recording as well.If you need more than the time available to the recorder, just leave it in the cradle, and record directly into your computer with the software that is included with the recorder. (The longest recording I have made in the high quality setting was about 10 hours.)
    All in all, it is a great product.I have had problems with other brands that just do not appear with this recorder!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Best when closer to the person speaking
    I've read some of the reviews about the recorder being able to record lectures really well, even from far away, but I've found that this recorder will pick up more of the surrounding noise than the lecture if you're more than 6-10ft away from the person speaking. I really love the fact that you can store and listen to recordings on your computer. It definitely saves money and space from regular tape recorders. The battery life I've found last maybe around 2 weeks. Like maybe 6-8hrs each week if you turn it off and on. I bought Rayovac's 15min rechargable batteries for the recorder. It records about 2hrs and 30mins? on SP speed and about 5 hrs or so on LP. I prefer the SP speed because the quality of the sound is better on playback, but I've had to download the files on the recorder more frequently. This recorder is best if you have only 2 classes a day that run about an hour each, or maybe even 3 classes if you want to record at LP speed. Overall it's a great recorder.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very poor support: no driver on Internet
    I agree with Reviewer:Andrzej Turski "guru" (Redmond, WA) Very poor support: no driver on Internet, October 12, 2004

    The drivers should be available from the web.Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one who had trouble.What a time waster this has been today.I'm better off buying a new one - and not from Olympus ever again.

    Today, a Olympus tech support told me the base software is "usually there but we're revising our web site."Well, Andrzej could not find it about 10 days ago.So it does not seem to be a temporary glich - but a long term oversight by Olympus.

    If you buy this, you will have to carry the CD wherever you may go and want to use your DVR because the sofware isn't on the web.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very poor support: no driver on Internet
    We bought DS330 to record interviews for our radio program. While the recorder workes reasonably well, I've run into big problems trying to copy the data onto PC. I was filling in for our regular technician. I was given the recorder with a cable and craddle and expected it to work with the computer. No such luck. The driver for the recorder control wasn't recognized. I searched the Internet, but the Olympus Web site has only updates that require the original software to be installed. But the original CD was misplaced and I don't have it!
    I understand Olympus doesn't want to give away an "advanced" sound editing software, but why the basic driver is not freely available? I got used to the idea that all the basic drivers for hardware devices can be easily downloaded. Beware! Olympus thinks differently. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Now we're talking....
    I read the reviews on Amazon and checked out the Olympus and other recorders...nothing touches this one for usability.Therein lies some of the problem.I'm a techie and still can'tuse it in the dark when driving. As a master's student, it has proved invaluable in lecture.On the (CONF-Hi) setting, it easily picks up even the whiniest professor's voice at a 15 foot range.The main reason I purchased the ICD-BM1 was it's 5 Dragon award from Dragon Natually Speaking(DNS).I use DNS v7.3 and have found it trained easily and has around 95% accuracy (down a few points from another reviewer) probably because I impatiently read the 1 hr training script in 40 minutes. It's very small and extremely light.The case has two velcro'd places for additional memory sticks.However, since it can use 128mb (not pro)I rarely swap sticks.I use the 128 for class related info and the others for personal life - maybe that's why I rarely swap - I have no personal life.One more thing, it's fabulous with DNS for dictating emails while driving.This allows emailing to family friends that would otherwise not hear from me as often.Great product!!!!

    PART TWO - 4 MONTHS AFTER PURCHASE
    When first setting up the unit I found the battery door was very difficult to get open - but dismissed it figuring how often would I be replacing batteries? It turns out the door has now become unstable and sits in a slightly open position, popping open at will. When the batteries come out unnoticed, I have to reset the date/time etc.

    After contacting Sony I learned that IF they determine it is a manufacturing defect versus user abuse, they will exchange the unit. The problem is... the unit received in exchange will not be new, rather it will be used (refurbished).

    A warranty should repair or replace with a new unit - especially manufacturing defects. I'm disappointed in Sony.

    Rather than do without the unit only to receive a used unit, I've decided to tape the door shut.

    Started to order this item at the listed price of $299. On checkout the price was $320 - plus $22 more for handling and shipping.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Included Sony Voice Editor Software Incompatibility
    I returned the Sony ICB BM1 due to the loud audible "click" it inserts into the recording whenever it is paused. Sony tech support said that it was a characteristic of all BM1's, not just the unit I had. Then I find that the Sony Voice Editor software is incompatible with my Windows XP Media Center pc, and the more current Voice Editor software which came with the BM1 does a "dirty" uninstall (leaves it's own dll files in the windows\system folder rather than the Windows dll files it replaced). This caused my Sony ICD MS515 Voice Editor software (an earlier version) not to work. After a week back and forth with Sony tech support, their conclusion is that ALL Sony Voice Editor software is incompatible with Windows XP Media Center pc's, and I was just out of luck that my older Sony ICD MS515 Voice Editor (and the recorder) wouldn't work now after working fine for seven months. I'll never by Sony again, and am waiting for the new Olympus DS-2200.

    5-0 out of 5 stars BM-1 Works GREAT With Dragon NatSpeak Pro
    I checked around several places before I made my BM-1 purchase. First of all, these puppies were hard to find anywhere much less get anyone on the phone who could tell me very much about the product.I found what I was looking for at voicerecognition.com where I was able to speak to someone who could explain in more detail to me how the Sony BM 1 would work with Dragon NaturallySpeaking Pro which I also own. The accuracy with the recorder is about 98% which I'm very pleased with. The slide switch is great because all the main functions are in one place.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Probably the best IC Recorder available as of 04/2004
    I've had this unit for approximately 5 months, during which time it has been almost continuously strapped to my belt.

    The unit is finished very well, with a brushed aluminum case and a belt case that allows quick removal of the recorder, and also for storage of spare Memory Sticks in 2 pouches on the side.

    If you own other Sony devices, this one uses the same USB trransfer cable, and also of course takes the Memory Stick cards which are proprietary to the Sony brand.

    The software was simple to install and operate, though I was a little disappointed that unlike the cheaper Sony ICD-MS515, this unitl is not shipped with the Dragon Naturally Speaking software. The Sony codec is not installed to the PC for encoding, only decoding. The internal mic has adjustable sensitivity, but I use it mainly on the conference microphone setting rather than the dictation, because I rarely use it for the latter. The intermal mic provides very adequate audio quality, picking up speech from 10-15 feet away without excessive noise, though I'm sure an external would be even better. The built in speaker is barely adequate!

    However, when compares to that MS515, the operation of the unit itself is much simpler. Those of you that hate software menus and prefer solid switches and buttons will love this unit. Although there is a configuration menu, most operations are accomplished with the use of high quality switches. For example, the main toggle allows the user to switch between record, stop and play effortlessly, and inserting or adding to an existing recording is easily done. In fact, I would say that it's designed to operate like the earlier generation tape devices, but without the limitations of that medium - easy.

    The quality of sound from this equipment is far in excess of what will normally be required. the High quality setting operates at a sampling rate of 44kHz, similar to CD quality, and when played back on a PC with good qualityh speakers, it shows. The medium quality is more than adequate for most purposes, and will provide you up to approx 20 hours of recording on a 128MB memory stick - more than adequate for me. I don't even bother using the lowest quality setting, although it's adequate for most purposes and substantially free from artefacts, as are the other modes.

    I use NiMH batteries rather than disposable alkaline, my small contribution to the planet, and I do find that the batteries will last for about 4 hours of recording, whereas high performance alkalines would last much, muich longer. the main power switch can tend to be knocked on or off in the carry case, which can be annoying, but actually, it uses very little power unless in an active mode such as recording or playback, so I don't see that as a fatal flaw. Inserting and removing the Memory Stick is a snap, there being a solid click when the card is properly positioned, and the display confirms that the card is being read, and how much space (relatively) remains. The display is easy to read, and can be configured to tell you different information about such as time remaining on card, time spent on this track, volume levels (VU meters) etc. easily be pressing the display button.

    All in all, although I have had the opportunity to trade this unit for another, I declined to do so. It's worth mentioning also that this recorder is sufficiently advanced to be used even for legal recording and transcription (IMO) with the optional paddle equipment.

    As with all free information, your mileage may vary.... ... Read more
