    Digital Voice Recorder

    Guys and Gals,

    Looking at getting a Digital Voice Recorder to replace the mini-tape one the office gave me. I am looking for recommendations for which model and brand I should be looking at and which I should stay away from.

    It will be used to record interviews and some contacts at my discretion.

    Let's hear what you guys use.

    Thanks,

    Any device you look at should be able to hook to and download to a computer for long term storage. It won't do you much good if you try and save evidence and run out of room on the device.

    I would use something like this if we didn't have our Arbitrator Digital body mics.

    We've got Olympus recorder's as well. Not the same model but, Olympus either way. Just like 121's, ours don't require cords. They have a docking station, OR they have a little SD card in them that plugs into the computer. I am a big fan.
