Voice sensitivity - does not pick up sounds as I thought it would. Volume on playback is not good.Read More
I bought this to record lectures in school. It's my second digital recorder, and I was amazed at the seemingly endless room to record at the highest quality setting. Navigating through the files on the device is effortless. I especially like the option for allowing the recorder to pause itself when the lecturer is not speaking, then start recording as soon as they begin talking again. The device syncs well with Windows 7. It's as easy as simply plugging it in to your computer and transferring to a folder. I was also able to import the files right into iTunes, and on to my iTouch, as this records MP3. The playback sound is pretty good, too. You won't go wrong for the price.Read More
It is a good recorder but the battery life stinks. My daughter needed this for school and the battery does not last through the lecture.Read More
Good Product. Fast service. Will by again. Not a good site for rating.Read More
I use it sometimes to monitor activity in the house when I'm away, and I set it for auto voice record, a new alkaline battery will only be half drained after about 9 hours when i get back home. It does a good job or turning off when it realizes it's not recording voices. For example one day i left it and there was a thunder storm while i was at work. I know thunder lasted for well over an hour, but the recorder only recorded about 3 min of it.Read More
This worked well for recording interviews, but didn't have much bass response recording live music. Overall it's easy to use and very portable. I think it is certainly worth the price.Read More
I love the Olympus WS-600S digital voice recorder. I am a veteran journalist and author so it is a necessity in my line of work. I had to upgrade from my old Uher Professional because operating systems and cards have changed so rapidly in the last few years. The quality of the recording is stellar, even over cell phone lines. The ease of use for uploading is 1,000 times better than on the old Uher. You just pop out the USB drive and stick it in the port and it automatically uploads the files to your hard drive. It was refurbished but is in perfect condition. I have ordered many refurbished products from Overstock.com and have never had a problem with any of them.Read More

Best Cell Phone Features
With the bevy of options and features now available in cell phones, it's easy to find one perfect for you. Before you begin searching for your next cell phone, take the time to think about what you need your phone to do. Below, you'll learn the best cell phone features. Camera: Cell phone cameras can be quite handy when you happen upon a special moment without a regular digital camera on hand. Most camera phones don't take very high-resolution (usually 1.3 megapixel) pictures, but there are some that top out over 3 megapixels. Some cell phone cameras even have small flashes. If you want a camera phone, find out if it comes with the cable and software to connect to your computer, so you don't have to spend extra for a separate program. Video: Usually, camera phones that play video will also record video. Some non-camera cell phones also play video. Look to see if you can transfer movies from your phone to your computer. Web browsing: Many cell phones let you connect to the Internet. Most use Wireless Access Protocol (WAP), which allows the phone to connect to pages specifically designed for cell phones. There are many phones with full browsers, however, that allow you to view regular Web pages. Bluetooth: Bluetooth is a technology that allows you to transfer data wirelessly between devices. Wireless cell phone headsets use this technology, and it can also be used to transfer pictures, ringtones and other data between two cell phones or between cell phones and computers. Games: There are cell phones out there that have been designed with the gamer in mind, allowing you to download games that would compare to those found on a personal gaming system. Office software: Most cell phones feature some sort of a calendar and alarm. You can set a wake-up alarm or you can make it alert you for your next appointment. Other phones allow you to make notes for each appointment. Some let you create documents that can be transferred to your computer's word processor or spreadsheet. MP3 player: More and more cell phones are also MP3 players. Check to see if you need special headphones for listening (and if they're included), and pay attention to the phone's memory capacity. Memory expansion: Some phones, usually video or MP3 player phones, feature memory card slots, so you can save pictures, music or other files on removable flash memory. Voice dialing: If you absolutely have to use your cell phone while driving, you'll want one with voice dialing. The phone recognizes the contact you speak and places the call, allowing you to keep your eyes where they belong: on the road. Buy Cell Phones Back to Guides Directory Buy Cell Phones
