Fantastic Recorder and good music player,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Olympus WS-802 Voice Recorder (Office Product)
I love this recorder. I bought it for my son for school, after having good success with an earlier Olympus recorder. I was tempted to keep it for myself. It performs extremely well and has great features. I installed a 16 gig memory card so he has plenty of capacity to record classes and I also was able to add an extensive compliment of classical music (his study music). While not as convenient for playing music as a dedicated music device, it is still easy and quick enough.
Features I particularly appreciate is its ability to automatically edit out pauses, such as in a professor's lecture; its built in USB connection; its inclusion of a rechargeable battery, that can be swapped out with a AAA battery in an emergency; and its ability to locate recordings via a calendar feature (select a certain date from an on screen calendar and it will provide all the recordings from that day).
I tried to think about something I didn't like about it but couldn't come up with any.

I wonder if the VOR feature just produces one long file or whether, after a set amount of time, a new file is created when speaking resumes. Have you tried this? Thanks.

I can't say for sure, as my son is jusing it at college, but I don't recall reading anything about this in the user manual.

Can you tell me, please, if this recorder will recharge a battery when plugged into USB? This feature is listed for the 802, but not the 801. Thanks!

I guess you already figured it out but for anyone wondering about this: the built-in battery recharger is ONLY included in the more expensive models: the WS-802 (WS-812) and WS-803 (WS-813). Therefore, it is not included in the basic model, the WS-801 (WS-811).
