Do you need a durable, high-quality digital voice recorder?

The Olympus VN digital voice recorders are for you.

There are numerous models in Olympus' VN line of digital voice recorders, but don't be intimidated. They really only differ in recording time and battery life. Also, there are PC and non-PC versions of each model. If you buy a PC version (which has "PC" in the name, as in "Olympus VN-4100PC"), you can hook the recorder up to your computer with a USB cable and save your recordings. This can be useful, but you will have to pay a little more money for this feature.
The longest recording time available now is 144 hours with the Olympus VN-4100, which should be more than enough for many people. That's equal to six days of non-stop recording. Olympus VN digital voice recorders also allow you to save your recordings in a few different virtual "folders" on the recorder for better organization.

However, a word of caution: the recorders offer a variety of quality settings, and the advertised time applies to the lowest-quality setting. If you change the settings to record at a better quality, you will have to sacrifice some of your recorder's maximum recording time.

"The VN-2000 does not have any advantages over the VN-4100 recorder," the representative wrote. "The reason for the difference in retail prices is due to the difference in release dates. The VN-2000 was released well before the VN-4100 and therefore set a higher initial price point due to the technology involved in the recorder.

"The one advantage the VN-2000 has over the VN-4100 is longer battery life. The VN-4100 will last from 15-25 hours on one set of batteries while the VN-2000 will last up to 30 hours on one set of batteries."

But despite the small hurdles of figuring out recording time and pricing, buying an Olympus VN digital voice recorder is definitely worth the money. You'll get a small, tough recorder that is very reliable and very affordable.
