Summary: I need a voice recorder built in radio. There are three optional ones in amazon, SONY,icd-ux523/f($156), and Olympus ws-710m(%99), WS-803($120). Sony ux523f is too expensive,and it has only 4G memory.My friend has a ux523G without radio whose price is only half of ux523F. When I turn to Olympus, I didn't find any great difference between 710M and 803 except that the recording time of WS-803 is longer than 710M. However, this is not important for me.
Summary: The Olympus WS-710M Digital Voice Recorder was just what I needed to record meetings, record and transcribe phone conversations and playback MP3 recordings. The only negative aspect about this device was the poor volume on the playback speaker. To listen to listen playback of any recorded items I needed an external speaker on the device or my laptop. Even at the highest volume setting it was hard to hear the playback.
Summary: Good product - Lots of features but one AAA battery is not enough ... should have another AAA battery so that you can play back recordings with greater speaker volume (top volume of speaker is currently on the weak side)
Summary: Great recorder for the casual user. I bought the Olympus WS-710M recorder to record class lectures and light singing in the car, nothing too intense. It works great as a lecture recorder, average as a musical recorder...guess my vocals were a bit too loud for the small microphones, might need to attach an external one.
