              Comments about Olympus DS-3400 Digital Voice Recorder:

              The DS-3400 from Olympus was a breeze to setup and use. I installed the software on a MacBook Pro with no issues at all and had the recorder up and running in less than 15 minutes. The only complaint I have is that the supplied case covers the delete button.
