Ok I ask this question every now and again:

Olympus LS-10 Linear PCM Recorder 2 GB Digital voice recorder

Is this the best low end, best buy digital voice recorder or have things moved on?

It depends on what you want to do...

Thaere is no 'best' with this type of technology. You pays your money and you takes your choice.

I swear by my Zoom H2 Handy Recorder - a snip at around £150. Excellent quality and easy to use.

I've never the seen the Olympus L10 before. Looks good!
I'll happily continue using my Edirol R-09 as long as it's happy to keep working for me, but it's not the cheapest option to buy now.
Yes, Zoom is good value too.

I got a Zoom H4n as a birthday present from the lovely Tina and I've been using it for radio interviews this autumn. The sound quality in the studio when I feed it into the programme is amazing!

I've been using my Tascam DR-1 more and more as I get comfortable with it. Latest project is to do voice over for a PowerPoint presentation.

Very happy with the Zoom H2 but I haven't compared it to anything else. Olympus LS-10 Linear PCM Recorder 2 GB Digital implies to me that it uses a 2GB inbuilt memory. The Zoom uses SD cards so is less likely to be limited by capacity. (when you remember to delete old files - red face)

I have an Edirol R-09 for sale (with a 2Gb SD card)... probably will go on eBay fairly soon. It's one of a few items I'm selling on behalf of the widow of a friend of mine. A couple of keyboards and guitars, and a banjo (Barnes & Mullins), too.

I'd hang on to the Edirol except that I have a Marantz PD660 with XLR mic inputs (with phantom and an 8Gb CF card). It's a lot bulkier than the Edirol...

Just beware if using cards with a capacity of more than 4Gb, as FAT doesn't support files larger than 4Gb.

The new H4 looks nice; I hope they've ironed out all the design flaws on the old one (crap modelling including next to useless windscreen / fiddly card access / shite velcro cradle design afterthought for stand mounting). I'm stuck with mine though - the sound is great but for that sort of money you expect a lot more somehow. The H2 is a better deal altogether.

I've stayed away from Olympus because I think their cameras are inferior (cheaper....but inferior). I think that Edirol had the corner of this market early, and still is very popular. "Zoom Handy" doesn't sound like a credible brand name, but I bought an H2 based on recommendations posted here - and I really like it. The only problem is that the display is a bit hard to read, and it's a bit unclear at first whether you're recording or on standby. It's a bit too small for my clumsy fingers and fading vision. Because of that, I missed a couple of one-hour talks I was supposed to record this last summer. But I'm learning...

The Zoom H4 had been very popular, but it was outdated and looking kind of clunky at the time I was in the market, so I bought the H2. Now there's a new H4 out, and it looks terrific.

I've seen the Olympus and it looks nice but I just don't trust the Olympus brand. Sony has one out, too - but it costs twice as much as the others. You should be able to get a good digital recorder for $150-$200.

Just used an edirol to record straight off the board at a local Amnesty benefit. Everything else portable I have is tied up in the studio. the edirol is a 2 channel recorder so I recorded a submix with two ambient mics routed in (IE not going to the PA) The device had a 4 GB card in it and I managed to capture the entire evening in 16bit. (Would have liked to have done 24 bit but would have run out of room.) A brief check on the result sounds potentialy very nice and eminently useable. I'll post again when I get a chance to edit it all and examine it in detail. Seems like a neat little machine and very easy to use.

One of my favourite H4 recordings was made one morning in August when for a few brief minutes I had the Chapter House of York Minster all to myself. It's the first track HERE...
