  • Like the Olympus

    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.

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? exactly the same, even smaller than I had hoped or imagined.
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. So far so good. Picks up sounds I wouldn't expect any recorder for this, or any other price to pick up.
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • great for voices

    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.

    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.

  • Just what I was looking for!

    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.
