Still working 5 years later since 2006-03

Joseph C., Newegg
18 December 2011
  • Summary: It was bought in time to record the memorial at the funeral home and the comments at my mother's funeral Mass at the church and cemetery. Easy to download to hard drives in My Audio folders.
  • Pros: One of the best computer devices that I have ever used for recording my thoughts, phone messages to download to my PCs, and other activities, even conversations with doctors, chiropracters, and other events, like Christmas caroling and the happy sounds of children playing with their grandparents ...
  • Cons: really nothing bad to say, except the text on the buttons is wearing out.

Excellent Device

Mike K., Newegg
10 September 2006
  • Summary: NewEgg shipping is the best. Battery seems to last for about 12 hours of recording. When the battery indicator says it is time to change the battery it means to change the battery (Go figure! Keep spares handy they are cheap.). A 4 hour lecture yields a file of approximately 50mb in size.
  • Pros: This recorder is very reliable and does an excellent job recording lectures and conversations. The USB connector makes file transfer and sharing a snap. Size of the device is great for carrrying in a shirt pocket. File management on the device is easy and intuitive.
  • Cons: Some may think the buttons and screen are small but given the size and weight of the device and the size of my hands I think after a bit of getting used to it they are great.

Great Recorder

david f., Newegg
24 August 2006
  • Summary: I'm a Police Detective and use it to record ALL my interviews. I just put it in my shirt pocket and it picks up GREAT. I then record it to a CD-R. I copy the audio file to my computer to use when I write my report and drop the CD-R into evidence as the official copy.
  • Pros: Easy to use, great sound replay quality, no background hiss, did I day easy to use? Not to mention the ability to just put it in the USB port and play it in window media player it just TOO awesome. I’ll never go back to a non-digital recorder.
  • Cons: Newegg doesn't carry all the accessories for it, like the phone microphone attachment. The product might not look sturdy, but after a year of use, it's held up well. I do wish the time and date were easier to set and read.

Olympus WS-200S

charles c., Newegg
19 July 2006
  • Pros: Very good quality recording on anything but the lowest setting. I use this in law school to review class lectures. It has been a life saver. It easily transfers onto my laptop, where I can play it at a faster speed if need be. I have never run into a situation where my recorder was full. I can ta...
  • Cons: There are only 2 flaws with this recorder. The low battery indicator has given me a false sense of security at the begining of class - not always accurate. The other flaw is that the battery has a tendancy to pop out if you do not put tape over its cover. But for these 2 flaws, I would rate this ...

Excellent Recorder

2 May 2006
  • Summary: I would like to see a little more memory so I could use it as a regular jump drive too. But for voice recording only, the memory is fine.

If you’re looking for a voice recorder that is super easy to use and has outstanding playback quality, lo...

first major recordings - my mother's funeral

Joseph C., Newegg
9 April 2006
  • Summary: Useful for long or short recordings, quick sound bytes or clips, quick memos.
  • Pros: Voices and singing inside or outside from several feet away are recordable on ST-HQ Hi sound sensitivity. 5 folders used for different subjects.
  • Cons: Too many voices speaking at once cause confusion and noise. The recorder scratches against your clothing creating background noise. Must hold firnmly in hand for clearer recording, or keep it still in a pocket, or on a desk or other surface.
