  • Summary: i like being able to work off my computer when transcribing notes It doesn't pick up the interviews the best, just average i'd say. I'm considering buying a separate mic.

Light weight, easy to download without cord

  • Summary: Pros: - very tiny - light, less than a pack of gum, unobtrusive - works well with external mike, purchased separtely - good life on batteries Cons: - tiny little buttons - internal mike picks up background noise easily - probably want to carry in a hard case, like a small eye glasses case

Convenient when it works

SMG, Amazon

  • Summary: This recorder does a good job of picking up local voices. Don't put it in your pants pocket and walk around because about all you'll hear are swishing sounds. It seems to work well in transferring the files to a computer as it plugs into a USB port and looks like another portable drive. My biggest problem has been the device turns off unexpectedly.

Excellent recording tool

B. Kunz, Amazon
10 January 2007
  • Summary: I bought this small recorder for a class I was taking over a two day period and it out performed what I thought it would do. The recording was crystal clear and picked up the lecturer perfectly. I would break and then start again anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 1/2 hours later. I put each recording in a distinct section so that when I down loaded it a few days later onto my computer I knew exactly where in the lecture I needed to go to review anything that I was unclear...

Olympus WS-2005 128 MB Digital Voice Recorder

Verginia Baker-betz "Virginia E. Baker-Betz", Amazon
3 January 2007
  • Summary: This product is the best and most amazing thing for someone in school. I tape the session, transfer over to the laptop, and then review the notes prior to class. I can tape from the back of the room and the quality is the same. You must be careful and not type around it, or it will also pick up that. I love it!! I've told my friends and they are also buying the product.

Olympus WS200S General Review

Mr. Ralph Magnus "rwmagnus", Amazon
6 December 2006
  • Summary: Only weakness I see is the speaker. It's just too weak needing more volumne range. Other than that this is an awesome digital recorder, small, light weight great battery life, easy to down load files etc. I'd buy it again but to get a 5 star rating they need to upgrade the speaker.

Great Devise if you have tiny fingers

R. Vance "habeeb", Amazon
6 November 2006
  • Summary: The built-in uSb connection saves time no fumbling with cables. windows XP sees the recorder as another drive with files very easy to transfer recordings. Choice of quality Levels is great - lower quality for lengthy lectures, Higher quality for language courses. Keeping track of files is also easy. many audio editing programs available to take out long silences BUT.

Worth the money

R. Hannon, Amazon
1 October 2006
  • Summary: I bought this recorder to use as a audio journal and to jot down ideas for future writing projects. The folder function makes it easy to divide up these ideas and retrieve them. I am pleased with the sound quality as I don't expect it to be recording studio quality. It does the job for me. I do agree with others about the issues with noise from handling, the small switches (I often have to put my glasses on to see the switches!), and the sudden battery popping out bit.

Worth the money, not very durable

Josquin DesPrez "Josq", Amazon
26 August 2006
  • Summary: This unit will give you more than 4 hours of stereo (or double that in mono) "HQ" recording in Windows Media format and allows you to transfer files by dragging and dropping in Windows, without having to install and use the shockingly primitive software used by SONY and others for their recorders. I love this. The HQ sound is excellent for recording voice memos or class lectures. Tends to be treble-heavy.

So So Recorder

W. Bradley, Amazon
15 August 2006
  • Summary: Nice package cool download to you pc. Internal recording Mic is barely passable for it to be called a mic. You have to use an external mic to get good quality recording.
