Summary: The software needed to operate the Olympus W-10 is outdated and will not run on Windows 7 or Windows 8. (I have both on 2 separate PCs) Olympus has no update to correct this. In will not run in Compatibility mode.
Summary: This is really a handy device that I use regularly. It is small and light weight and fits in my pocket. I got it at a great price, knowing that the camera wouldn't work without the software. I didn't need the camera anyway. I would definately recommend this recorder.
Summary: the usb cord wasn't recognized by any computer, so nothing was able to be uploaded off this contraption. i didn't find this out until over a year into using this; i move slowly sometimes. customer service recommended i get a new cord. duh! they would not replace it, however.

Summary: Small and Light weight for job site use . We use it in an accident kit , to record statements and take pictures , while it's fresh in peoples memory . Both of which can be down loaded on a computer , then saved on a disc .
Summary: I've owned many digital voice recorders, and settled on this model a few years ago. It provides the digital voice, and also a camera. The controls are easy to remember. When I have an idea floating in my head and can't sleep, I don't even turn on the light.
Summary: To order this from the seller was a mistake. The product was not as advertised (quite inferior). My e-mail to the seller after receiving the product was never acknowledged nor has a refund been forthcoming (I returned the product). This is always a danger but is my first bad experience.
Summary: I use the recorder every day for self reminders. It's perfect! Prior to recorder I used post-it notes all around my house and office and now I feel very organized. I was very suprised to find out that it has the capability to take pictures.
