            Will use this as a video sound recorder. Definitely better than the built in camera mic. Has pretty good Mono sound quality when used with a lavaliere mic. This is an option instead of wireless transmitters and receivers. a lot less expensive. Right channel can be added in post. It still won't be stereo, but sounds good. Have only used voice so far.
            The on off switch and the menus are not intuitive, but after reading instructions it is OK.

            Comments about Olympus VN-702PC Digital Voice Recorder (Silver):

            Great little recorder. It works for what I bought it for which is to record other people talking to our group on tour. Very sensitive built in mic but easily picks up room noise, wind noise , and brushing against recorder. The playback vol can be easily adjusted. The mic sensitivity can be adjusted to High or Low and has an auto mic vol control which works very well.
            Very logical menu and very easy to use. There is a LPass filter and voice filter which work well. I also got an external mic ME52 which is good for clipping to my lapel so the recorder remains in my pocket but to be effective you need to be careful not to move or brush against the mic because it blatantly picks up that sound at very hi volume. The ME52 mic is fine but the wind cover is useless and easily falls off. The mic clip is also silver colored and too pronounced. It should be black.

            Choice to record in MP3 and WMA is great. Sound quality is good thru ear phones or computer. Built-in speaker is as good as one can expect.

            The only feature I am disappointed in is the VCVA Variable Control Voice Actuator. It works well if you are the speaker and the recorder or mic is close to your voice. The sensitivity range adjustment is fine. However, if you are trying to recording someone speaking 8 ft or more away from you it's useless because the sensitivity can't be set low enough. VCVA also cannot be used in a User Setting mode which has filters etc activated. It only operates in VCVA mode as far as I figure out. I would't be using that feature.

            I got a microSD card and it works well 16Gb gives about 300hrs at MP3 128kbps. Font sizes can be selected. Interface to Mac is easy.
            Other than that it's a great device and I am glad I got it.

              We use this recorder when we need to mic a bride discretely for a wedding. Used with a elastic hair band, we secure the recorder to the bride's thigh like a garter, then tuck a lapel mic in a hush lav device just inside her dress. Love the long recording time, battery life and compact size.
