Olympus DS 5000iD ... dictation requirements and is part of the complete Olympus dictation solution comprising voice recorder, transcription kit and dictation management software. Regardless of the dictation situation, this first-class voice recorder has all bases covered in the entire process. Housed in a luxurious metal body that exudes elegance, it not only plays the part - it also looks the part.
Business users often discuss matters that are highly confidential - or at least not intended for everyone's ears. That's why the DS-5000 incorporates numerous security features to ensure files are protected from unauthorized playback or duplication. For starters, this model allows voice files to be encrypted and decrypted. Furthermore, users can set up password protection on their device. The special DS-5000iD model even enables protection using biometric information. In this way maximum security is assured.
While the DS-5000 is a veritable powerhouse, operation remains simple. Menu choices are intuitive to let the user focus on the business at hand. A single slide switch allows the most common functions to be accessed in just a fraction of a second. Further navigation buttons are located ergonomically in the center of the device to ensure easy data input and access to settings. Allowing all information to be seen at a glance in a choice of six languages, this model also features a large, back-lit LCD, which is protected against scratches thanks to a high-grade, coated screen.
A business tool is nothing if it is not dependable. That's why Olympus has gone to great lengths to ensure the DS-5000 performs exceptionally in this regard. Its metal body protects it against the knocks and bumps of daily use. The slide switch mechanism, which runs on rubber rollers for virtually noise-free operation, has been thoroughly tested for extended use. The USB connector and battery door have been specifically designed for heavy-duty treatment. And when it's time to take the recorder from the desktop cradle to the hand, users will enjoy the convenience of one-hand dock and undock functionality. Furthermore, due to extra-low battery consumption, the DS-5000 continues recording after others have long given up the ghost.

This was given to me as a gift for starting university which has since proven invaluable. Practicing presentations and even recording some lectures with its clarity have been its main uses for me. The clarity of the recordings is also fantastic, incredibly important when being used in a large lecture room. I am able to place it on the desk in front of me or facing a speaker in a 500 people lecture theatre where it picks up little interference and very little cracking. The simple design allows for you to stop, play and pause easily particularly helpful when revising or writing up lecture notes. The memory makes sure you get all the recordings you need, I ...

I recently started a new job that involves intensive training in a classroom environment as well as the need to be constantly on the move as a tutor within the classroom itself. I quickly realised that, as I had had a fantastic Dictaphone at University, it seemed to be a logical solution and alternative to intensive note taking and making notes on scraps of paper. After previous positive experiences with the Olympus brand I had no hesitation in purchasing this when I came across it in a local store.
