    What's a good digital tape recorder to get?
  2. I hope you're asking because you want to use it to record your law or business professors' lectures.

    Sounds like you're getting a tape recorder and a digital recorder confused.

    I use an Olympus model, but mine seems to have been passed on the food chain by newer models.

    I've had a pocket-sized Sony for about three years that can get over four hours on it. Pretty durable as well, considering the number of times I've dropped it onto concrete.

    Do a search for recorders and you should find some good answers. There are at least three or four other threads about this topic.

    I also use an Olympus....about 4 and a half hours of recording time on this. Lightweight, tiny, and long-lasting. Most importantly, its pretty cheap (about 100).

    I've probably got the same one. I recommend any Sony recorder.

    You can get a lot more than that for $100 these days. As a matter of fact, for $70 you can get the Olympus WS-110, which I just bought. It will hold up to 69 hours (or about 16 hours in high-quality mode) and doubles as a flash drive. It plugs directly into a USB port and records in WMA format. Very nice.

    I just bought the WS-110. One thing about it is that you need to watch the buttons since they are small.

    i've had my olympus ds-2 for about 2 years now and love it. olympus software works great with my mac. you can buy a cheap model that does things pretty good for not a whole lot of money these days.

    i've had a sony and two olympus models and i'm loyal to my olympus

    I second all these points on the WS-110. It's a nice recorder for the money, but it's so small I've come close to washing it twice. Now I have the neckstrap on it to help remind me that it's in my pocket.

    I have a Sony ICD-B300 digital recorder. It's small and hasn't given me any problems in 2 years of using it.
