This super gadget has more than enriched my life since I acquired it merely a month ago! The reason behind me buying the Olympus Dictaphone was because whilst at university, I kept having the problem of forgetting what the lecturer had said during a lecture and therefore when it came to writing an essay I would miss vital points. This all stopped when I bought the Olympus Dictaphone! I was able to record the parts of the lecture that I was missing, which really benefited me in the long run.
It was only after a few weeks I realised that I could also use this to help me with my weekly food shopping! I could record everything that I knew I needed to buy and even helped me if I was on the move and had no pen or paper to write on. In this sense, I have also saved money on buying stationary because I can record all my thoughts instead of buying loads of paper and pens!
What makes this product a great buy is the fact that it is so small I can carry it with me anywhere, whether it be in my bag or in my coat pocket. I never go anywhere without it!
Moreover, the Olympus Dictaphone fits neatly into most of my pockets so in this sense I can take it almost anywhere without any problems. The Dictaphone itself is reasonably small, fits nicely in your hand and is not complicated at all. The buttons are all clearly marked so you know what you're pressing.
However, this product does have some negatives. Personally for me, the screen is a little small but this may not be an issue for some people as I do not have very good eyesight. Also, I find that the power consumption is quite high, therefore it seems that I am forever recharging the batteries.
Other than this, I find the Olympus Dictaphone a great buy that has certainly helped me in life by never letting me forget a thought!
