    DVR

    It greatly depends on what you'll use it for, but Olympus DVRs are very easy to use. I have one that stores six hours, uploads the recording to the Mac, and the batteries last a long time.

    I have a DS-330. Download the latest software from the Olympus web site. It should cost about $90.

    If you want the best...

    The Philips seems to be the best of the bunch. Highly recommended by PCMag.

    If it's too expensive, then go with one of the less expensive ones from Olympus, Sony or Panasonic. Choose the one that has features you can really use :)

    Caution

    The Phillips 9250 doesn't work with the Mac. I spent two weeks looking at all of the various devices. A very neat DSS-330 feature is the setting for close or far recording--classroom or one-on-one.
