A great music player / digital voice recorder combo
 
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. My older DS-2 is disadvantaged with only 64mb of memory and a proprietary USB connector.This DVR is much smaller than other DVRs. It is almost half the volume and weight of the DS-2200 (sim...

Newer production units are awesome!
 
Adlevision's negative review of this product almost convinced me to skip purchasing the WS-320M and spend over twice as much on an Edirol R-09. Though, I took a chance by purchasing the Olympus unit any way. Since receiving it, I have put my WS-320M through its paces and have concluded that this is actually a fantastic little unit. Though, I should preface that my unit is running Firmware version 1.18. My suspicion is that some of the reviewers might have earlier units with an older firmware...

Great piece of equipment
 
I am a grad student, and I use my WS320 while travelling and conducting interviews for my dissertation. I have had it for a couple months now. For a long time, I refused to replace my little minicasette recorder for a digital one because I heard horror stories of people losing their work when transferring data etc. Well, this has turned out to be one of the best investments EVER. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my WS320. I am no expert in audio equipment, so I cannot speak to that... but I conduct interviews ...

I am very pleased. It is surprisingly good.
 
I read the above reviews was was a a little concerned. The unit is not low cost but a number of people thought it is not well made.I bought it anyway. I have two other Olympus digital recorders(WS-100 snf D1000) and well as a couple of old tape dictation machines of various types.The digital recorders are some much better than the old tape machines. I think the D-1000 is is an excellent machine for dictation. It has nice controls that are easy go back and forth with as...

Battle of the Digital Voice Recorders
 
When it comes to buying a digital voice recorder, I like to try each one out and pick the best one. My primary use is for recording lectures. I initially purchased several Digital Voice Recorders. (3 from Olympus, 1 from Sony). Olympus wins hands down. (Tell Radioshack and CompUSA I'm sorry for returning... Purchasing for keeps Amazon has best price)1. Background: When I first purchased the DS-2 the sound quality was better than the WS-100 and Sony's $150 DVM also. The DS-2 is...

Better than my last digital voice recorder
 
I don't agree with the previous poster's review saying that sound quality is poor with low signal-to-noise ratio. I've found this voice recorder better than my previous JNC model, and I've had success recording in a noisy environment. It's a good overall package for the following reasons:- 1GB capacity is good for the price- The USB connector is built in - no cable to remember to pack- It appears as a regular disk for both Mac and PC - no proprietary drivers n...

Falls short of an iPod but nice recorder
 
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. The Olympus recorder is the first recorder which I have personally owned which has fine enough fidelity to make it useful. I am using the highest quality, stereo recording since 35 hours is more than ample, overkill really. On the lower quality settings, it can store many times more.I...

It's so small I'm afraid I'll lose it
 
It's been running several weeks on the original AAA battery. The internal speaker is OK for voice but plug in earphones or external speakers and it sounds like a stereo is playing. For recording distant sounds, like in a lecture, a good external shotgun mike is an improvement. But a good external shotgun mike is an improvement for any tape recorder.Bottom line- I like it, it does exactly what I thought it would, no I will not loan it to my grandson.I do suggest you put on...

Wonderful product, BUT--Amazon reviewers deserve the most praise!
 
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. the product is stylish and well constructed (though a bit expensive, especially the accessories).03. the features are ALL useful, (unlike many of today's unnecessarily cluttered electronics gadgets); I...

Perfect for interviews
 
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. More than acceptable, though not as good as a professional sound system of course.Buy the external noise cancelling microphone. It pops on to the mic-in jack, and is very small. This reduces some of the no...
