Summary: before I had a smartphone, I needed this to assist with reviewing lectures when I was in grad school - was very good - sensitivity was excellent and proved to be ultra handy when doing interviews for project reports. Sold it on eBay after I was done with it for a good price.
Summary: Once again, this product is a great buy. The features alone are a great value for the cost of the product. I highly recommend this item for any student!
Pros: Great price for what you get. Clear recording and plenty of space for even high quality recordings as long as the files are rotated to a bigger drive every so often.
Cons: If you are buying this item with the intention of using it as an MP3 player, please just buy a comparable MP3 player. Although, this product does double as one, the storage space is not entirely efficient for both high quality recordings and high bit-rate MP# files.
Perfect for voice notes in small or large conference rooms

Summary: I looked around abit before bought it...It is really awesome toy. Great sound- I mean GREAT sound. Runs on one AAA bettery would play MP3 also. The build in speaker also doesn pretty good job actually. It is quite small - thats what I was looking for.
Summary: Pros: Very good music player. Sound clarity is exceptionally good with nice bass booster. Easy file management and direct plug-in to your computer. Cute looking. Cons: Need to change battery quite often. There is no slot available to increase the memory.
Pros: Works well in the lecture environment. Could use a little better gain and reduced hiss but the quality is good overall. WMA format is completely convenient. Large capacity never leaves me wondering if everything is going to fit .. it always fits.
Cons: Sucks batteries. I've learned that Energizer AAA batteries last about half as long as Duracells in this device. I've had corruption in a couple of recordings then the battery ran low and it didn't save them properly. I think it should figure out that they need saving +before+ the battery runs out.
Summary: I bought this to use to record my rock & blues band at gigs and practice. It was easy, recorded well without any distortion, but when played back through a stereo, revealed little bass. After EQ, it sounds pretty good, but is a low output unit.
Summary: I bought this recorder for dictation purposes. Works great. Simple to handle, quite handy, easily goes in my pocket and my wife's purse. Files can be easily moved to any computer as back up. Only problem I see with this device is that the play back volume is low even on the highest setting.
Wonderful product, BUT--Amazon reviewers deserve the most praise!

Summary: I love my new Olympus WS-320M,1 GB Digital Voice Recorder and Music Player, and all the optional accessories I purchased with it. (I bought most all of those offered here and at Olympus' home page, spending some $218 total). 01. everything works as advertised. 02.
Summary: As a musician, I use this to capture tunes in a live session, or to play an original tune into it so I don't forget. It's also handy when I need to remember a conversation. This isn't the best quality recorder around, but it sure is convenient!
