Good audio quality, file format annoyances, micro size has pros and cons
5 July 2007
Summary: Pros--Size, Sound quality, Handy USB design, Cons--Size, Limited file type support, Battery life I've used this product over a year, primarily to record group conversations, persona memos, meetings, and conference calls. On the whole, it is very useful, but it has a few quirks and weak points.
Summary: I'll begin by saying this recorder is rapidly becoming an invaluable tool for me. I have owned several of digital voice recorders and they have all found their way into the bottom of my junk drawer.
Summary: I sing in a chorus and several of the guys bought one of these mp3 recorders ahead of me. It is very light, very compact, and conveneint to carry. It works well enough on a lanyard, though there is some rushing noise picked up as the device moves across clothing.
Olympus DS-2 better mic. WS-320M Ok mic and more memory

Summary: I own Olympus DS-2 and WS-320M digital voice recorders. I think that DS-2 is much better built, but it only has 64MB of memory which is a pity. Don't get me wrong WS-320M is still an excellent option if you consider it as a whole.

Summary: This is an excellent device for recording interviews. More than good enough for lectures and informal dictation. The recordings are clear (especially at HQ or Stereo HQ). I use it for interviews for a trade magazine. I also use it for recording interviews that I edit into podcasts.
Summary: I am reviewing this recorder from the point of view of the non-technical end user. I am taking a very challenging physiology course with high-speed lectures that pack three hours worth of information into one hour.
A great music player / digital voice recorder combo

Summary: My DVR (digital voice recorder) experience has included the Sony ICD-MS515, the Olympus DS-2200 and DS-2. My main use for DVRs is PC archival of lectures and sermons. The new WS-320M appealed to me because of its 1GB of flash memory, small size, WMA codec, and built-in USB connector.
Summary: Questo nuovo prodotto multimediale della Olympus, rappresenta bene cio' che andrebbe fatto per tutti gli appassionati di musica, che non uscirebbero mai di casa senza la propria compilation musicale preferita!!
