Very Poor Sonics, Overly Complex User Interface
 
I highly recommend the Sony or Radio Shack digital recorder product lines (even those priced under $50). They are extremely easy to use with quite acceptable sonics; and when compared from a price/performance perspective they are far superior to that of my DS 150 digital.The complex "wheel-driven" menu user interface of the DS 150 is klunky at best (and confusing when accidently depressed which is quite easy to do), not designed for internet time, and the miniture play and...

Good, but software lacks Win2K support
 
On the whole, I am quite pleased with this recorder. The sound quality is good and it fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.The controls require some attention to operate as they are small and closely spaced.You need to read the manual carefully to understand how the system operates, but once this is done using the recorder seems straightforward enough.The unit I received includes IBM Viavoice Millennium version 7 voice recognition software. One small problem: Windows 2000 ...

Not worth the money
 
I purchased the DS-150 about 4 months ago and have not been satisfied with the product.The recording and playback quality is poor and the voice recognition software accompanied with the product is extremely hard to set-up correctly and use.Save your money and buy a standard tape driven recorder!

OK, but disappointing
 
There are some things that are worthwhile in the DS-150. It's small size and light weight is welcome, and it is quite easy to save sound files on my computer in WAV format (my primary criterion for purchase.)However, it's user interface is simply one of the worst I have ever seen. Even after following the steps in the manual, I found myself unable to perform simple operations like setting the time without referring to the manual again. It makes the average VCR look good!If you've see...

Just hope you do not need tech support.
 
I like the recorder a lot, but I will not restate what has already been said regarding functionality. However, just make sure you lock the DSS software in a safety deposit box. Olympus tech support is horrible. I lost the software (yes, my fault) and called tech support to see where I could download it. They had no idea, and blatantly stated that they did not have time for a "non-tech" issue. Called another support number, the service rep had no idea why I would need the softw...

Useful, yes, and better than the Sony
 
Other reviewers have done an excellent job of describing the benefits of this tool so I'll be brief. First, you will use it in new ways as long as you're not embarassed by the 'note to self' jokes. Phone numbers, addresses, to do's, random musings, and more. For months when I was very busy I'd keep it near my bed to clear my head before falling asleep. Eventually enough would be in the recorder (and I didn't have to turn on the light) that I could stop worrying about forgetting.I bough...

my first digital recorder, I like it a lot.
 
This is my first digital recorder - the earlier ones seemed to be more like toys with too little storage for practical use. One thing that sold me on the DS-150 was not having to worry about storage capacity or deleting messages earlier than I might want in order to free space. My voice sounds like my voice when I play it back. Controls are easy to use with one exception - erasing messages - that control could be laid out a little better so that you don't have to look at the unit when er...

Top notch digital recorder
 
This is one of the lightest, slimmest, recorders on the market. I have carried and used various recorders for the past two years and this is by far the best yet. Clarity is excellent and volume control is easy. Dictation/transciption has never been easier.

Totally worth it for my project.
 
This recorder has been great. I got it for two reasons: one for work -- the dictation software is great (and fun) and has helped me rapidly do a project that used to take weeks! The other reason: to create story CDs for my toddler. I have had friends read her favorites into the recorder, download and convert them, and then burn them onto CDs. Great for bedtime, downtime or driving. She loves it (and it drives the cat nuts!). The UI is difficult on the recorder, but I ignore all that and use the ...
