Summary: I read lots of reviews before purchasing this, and it is wonderful! I am a speech therapist, so I often need to record my client's speech and language. This is so easy to use, and the best part is that I can upload it onto my computer quickly, so I can begin transcribing the conversation. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Summary: An iPhone recording is better than what this delivers. It has heavy auto-gain which is too reactive. It will bring out all the background noise. Easy to use and the slide out USB connection is handy. My LCD began bleeding in the middle of the screen. No visible cracks. This tells me that the item is much too delicate.
Summary: This easy to use voice recorder is a great additiona to my tech array. It is actually part of my ghost hunting arsenal & has indeed caught EVP's. I take it with me on every trip, it is very clear.
Summary: I purchased this recorder only because I could not buy another new WS-300. I had purchased a WS-300 several years before, and loved it. After a lot of use recording meetings, classes and conference calls so I could transcribe them later, and not miss information by trying to take notes in the meeting, class or call, the WS-300 started skipping. I looked for a reason for skipping, the only thing I could find was a software update. Mine had the latest update.
More than happy with this recorder! Great for EVP'ing

Summary: We have had a Sony for years and liked it, I was reluctant to try anything else but the features on this Olympus were hard for me to pass up. Actually using it however has been a real dream! This recorder is so slim and compact, and it feels great in the hand. All the features are easily accessible through the menu button on the front (just hold it down to bring up the display). You can change the mic sensitivity, what mode you record in (WMA or MP3).
