This voice recorder is easy to use and sound clarity is very good.

Transferring files to computer is a breeze, just extract USB connector, plug it in and in Windows you can just drag and drop files from it like from any flash drive.

Without any experience with any Olympus recording devices, I found it relatively easy to use out of the box without reading the instructions.

I just ordered this Olympus VN-8100PC digital voice recorder a few days ago and so far it has worked pretty good. I had an older digital voice recorder, but it didn't have a USB port, so I couldn't transfer files to my PC which is what I wanted, so I bought this. I've made several recordings and transferred them to my PC and they sound good, all you do is plug it into a USB port on your computer and then you can access this device just like a USB thumb drive.

I decided to go with this one because the older Olympus model VN-6200PC on Amazon has over a hundred reviews that are mostly all positive, and this one is simply an updated more advanced model with 2GB of memory instead. I checked the Olympus website and this one is very close to the 6200PC model that everybody loves, but with more features and an easier looking layout. The most important difference is the ability to record in MP3 format, the 6200PC can only record in WMA format. Also this one has 2GB of memory, so you can record for a long time, and if the memory fills up you can just transfer the files off the device to your computer.

As far as the layout of the on screen menu settings and buttons on the device, it is super easy. I didn't even read the instruction manual to figure everything out, I just played around with it for a few minutes and everything was pretty much self explanatory, it's designed so anybody can use it without having to click through a bunch of settings and crap just to get it to work.

If you buy this device, one very handy accessory to get is the

This is a review for the Olympus WS-700M Digital Voice Recorder 142625 (Blue)

I needed a compact digital recorder for multiple purposes: To record my thoughts while away from my desk, To record myself for later transcription (via DragonSpeak), and to record personal stuff (guitar and ukulele compositions, parties, and my daughter singing). I bought this as a backup to my other Sony PCM-M10 recorder, which is an excellent recorder but I found to be a bit too "large" to conveniently carry around everywhere. I also considered the Sony ICD-PX820 and the Olympus VN 6200pc, but decided to get the Olympus 700M for various reasons I will spell out here.

Firstly, this 700M is the "middle" unit of the latest releases (600S, 700M, 710M). All three have built-in memory (2, 4, and 8 GB, respectively), stereo mics and stereo mic inputs, built-in USB port for direct connect to PC, playback speed control. The differences are in the size of the built-in memory/storage and a few other features. I went for the 700M because I wanted the expandability (microSD card slot) but did not want or need the FM tuner in the 710M. It would have been nice to have the directional mic of the 710M, but again I did not need it. It is just slightly larger than the ipod nano, but the sound is just as good (if not better) with the 700M. The only disadvantage I can see with this unit as an mp3 player is that I have yet to figure out how to create separate subfolders in the music folder. Once I figure it out (if at all possible), I'll post an update.

It is easy enough to operate.

First bought the Sony that Amazon has at #1- it was actually not good in the fact that it picked up Iphone or other RF interference and ruined 2 of my recordings. Than I tried other Olympus recorders, and found them ok, but I really wanted stereo output and good battery life with little hissing. The Sony had A LOT of hiss in the recording. This one once you turn on the filter in playback eliminates practically all the hiss. Trust me I went through like 5 recorders before settling on this little guy. The only thing I wish it had was a way to add to a recording. Once you stop you have to record a new file, so be sure to just Pause. Probably the most amazing thing about this recorder is the battery life- While the Sony 820 ate up my batteries in one week of classes, this thing hasn't even dropped a bar out of 3!!! Very impressed. Sometimes it takes some searching, but don't buy the top two sellers when you can get this for the same price.

You won't regret it! Plus the Sony comes with NO CASE!!!! I would of liked headphones, but that is not a big deal, the case that comes with this is so needed. Sony, I'm a little disappointed that your product wasn't even close to what Olympus put out.

I did some research before purchasing the Olympus WS-700M. The prior good reviews in general regarding Olympus, and the fact that this was the only one on the store shelf with a rechargeable battery, clinched the deal for me. Other contenders were up and down the Olympus and Sony product lines. I limited my search to the generally good variety of stock on hand at my local Staples, since I needed the device quickly for an upcoming assignment.

I purchased this product primarily for conferences, lectures and meetings, but the day I purchased it (today), I took it to a Christmas concert and recorded 1 hour and 28 minutes of music using a custom recording setting (mp3 256 kbps). We piped the music from the device through the aux jack of the car stereo on the long drive home and were absolutely blown away by how well it recorded! Silent and loud passages reproduced exceptionally well (and I used to sell audio equipment - I was something of an audiophile back in the day).

The only pings I would give it probably do not merit a decision not to buy. The first is that it is incredibly light and has a plasticy "feel" to it. While the construction is solid, I suspect the manufacturer used a cheap grade of plastic. If it were in your back pocket and you forgot about it and sat down, the last sound you would ever likely hear from it would be "crack!", and you'd likely end up with plastic splinters in your derriere. The buttons themselves have a good feel to them with a nice tactile "positive click" feedback, and it is not a very mechanical device beyond that. So the likelihood of the construction being an issue under normal use is probably nil. The other ping is somewhat amusing. It has to do with the user manual, which is written in somewhat awkward English.
