Can anyone recommend a reasonably good-quality pocket-size voice recorder for recording in lecture halls, seminars and conferences? Budget is around RM300. I googled and read good review of Olympus voice recorders such as VN-5200PC but are these available in local shops such as Lowyat? Thanks. :confused:

i bought a Philip MP3 cum voice recorder player for only RM199 or was it RM299.. its have 2GB of space and can hold 40 long hours of voice recording. i am using it for me lecture

but if using it in lecture halls, seminars and conferences, you can put it near the speaker stand.

Bought Olympus VN-3100PC at Jusco Sunway Pyramid recently when there was a discount. Made in China (like most things nowadays)

chewie, I would like to record the speech or lectures from among the crowds. What is the optimum working distance (still have good quality playback) of your recorder if recording from the crowds, says 5th row of seats from the speakers (approximately 15ft and beyond)?

fRaNkY &jadewhite, thanks. I will drop in at Summit and One-U to have a look.

Mayang, how much did you pay for the VN-3100PC? Is the quality of recording acceptable? Can the recording format playback on the computer and car CD system?

Bought the Olympus VN-3100PC for RM 229.
Sound quality is ok for that price. I was only looking for a basic model. You can set to different sound quality levels for the recordings - high quality etc..
Yes, you can transfer the wav files to PC and play it on the PC. I have not tried out on making it into a CD that you can play in the car. But i believe it should be possible. You can check the Olympus website for the specification.
