Summary: Nice little recorder. I bought this one because it works with Mac. Software on the Mac is easy to use. My only complaint about the recorder is that the playback sound is not very good. After listening to it for 30 minutes it started to bother my ears.
Summary: I searched long and hard to find the best digital voice recorder possible. My goals were simple: record conference calls and the ever more important meetings but without anyone seeing or noticing the recorder - I'm hard of hearing and use this to go back to fill in my notes.
Summary: I've just started using this. The functionality and recording quality seem good. My major frustration is that I want to use the recorded files with voice recognition software. The easiest way to do that is to upgrade the included DSS Player software to the "Plus" version.
Summary: This recorder is great! I am using it to record sermons and then transferring them to our church's website. The quality is great. Got a cheap ($25) lapel mike to plug into the recorder from Radio Shack, and the sound quality is great.
Summary: I used this recorder to record speakers in a large lecture hall. The first time I used it, a bug in the device caused it to have only 4 minutes of recording time instead of 4 hours! I changed the setting to 10 hours of recording time, and all it gave me was 10 minutes.

Summary: Back in Aug 2006, I purchased a Olympus Digital Recorders DS-2 for recording in-depth interviews. So far it has worked great! They recorder is light and the sound quality of the recorder is pretty good despite the fact that I have been recording in places such as night clubs, bars, and streets where...
Summary: Very good clarity of audio recordings. I have used a Sony ICD-SX25 previously and the Olympus DS-2 is much more user friendly with a wide variety of good sounding compression rates. I regularly email audio files back to the office and thus a small file size is crucial.
Olympus DS-2 perfect stereo mic. WS-320M Ok mic and more memory

Summary: I own Olympus DS-2 and WS-320M digital voice recorders. I think that DS-2 is much better built, but it only has 64MB of memory which is a pity. Don't get me wrong WS-320M is still an excellent option if you consider it as a whole.
Summary: I find this voice recorder very easy to use from a performance perspective. Buttons are easy to use for those with limited hand dexterity. Storage space is more than adequate, and the price is right.
Summary: Actually, the DSS Player software that comes with this recorder does work on the new Intel Macs to transfer software from the recorder to the computer via a USB connector using the "Import File" command on the file menu.
