Summary: I have previously owned one and it has great quality for the price. Turn around was good from the seller. I think this product compares fine with more expensive models out there on the market.
Summary: This is the second DS-40 recorder I have bought because I liked it so much. I keep one in my backpack and one in my locker at school. When I know I will miss a class I loan it to a friend and don't miss a thing.
Summary: Once you wade through to extreem complexity of managing all this recorders features, it does a fine job of recording. The include software is for PC Windoz only, so Mac users might want to forget using this product. Keep the extensive manual handy because you'll be referencing it frequently.
Summary: To tell you the truth, I was told that this would bet the best unit for the money. So I looked around and found that my friend was right ans now I have the best unit for my needs and the added bonus of buying from a top seller on ebay.

9 March 2010
Summary: I was happy,with the way the DS-40 was made. MADE TO LAST. Easy to use and small enough to take any were,but will catch about every thng, it can with the stereo MODE. I use it to play my guitar and sing and I didnt even have to fix any thing to play it back.
Summary: The olympus ds40 is so much better than the Sony trash. The Sony's recordings you had to hold the recorder to your ear to hear, but the Olympus, well, you can hear things when you record while its in your pants pocket. Three levels of mic sensitivity to choose from.
Summary: Item came as advertised. Works Great. I have 2 things I don't like about the unit. 1). Stereo Microphone that comes with it has a very thin sound if you are recording live via that microphone. I have a factory plug-in Mono mic that sounds very close to normal. 2).
