Olympus WS-852 - voice recorder is rated 4.80 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeG from A sound purchase! Small, easy to use, great sound quality! I bought this to record samples of songs I have written, and this works like a charm! Although, obviously not studio quality, it is more than fair to say it captures what is needed for my purposes. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a similar solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Don from A dynamic little DVR. The WS-852 is awesome. I was out of town but I showed a friend how to use it and she recorded a meeting (12-15 present) in a grade school class room set to the default settings and worked great even for the soft spoken speakers. Took a little bit to figure out the filing system but basically turned it on, pressed record and done. Loading on to PC was easy as well. Large files had to be uploaded to Google drive to share in gmail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by danny from Simple to use and great audio output Really easy to use and portable but a bit thick. Gets the job done without a hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuck from Top Performance Have used the recorder for sailboat races and it performed to my expectations. Loved the built in USB to transfer the recordings to my computer, rather than having to hunt for the right cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chuck from Tough Recorder I am assigned the Olympus WS-852 for my work as a Detective of a Police Department. I admire the quality of the recorder, and ease of downloading files to my Cases. The most important thing that happened to me today was that I left the recorder on top of my vehicle during an interview of a suspect. I forgot that the recorder was on top of the car, and I drove off. While traveling 50 mph, I heard the recorder fall off of the roof of my vehicle and I observed it hit the concrete and tumble down the road. I turned around and got out of my car to retrieve the recorder. Before I got to the recorder, I observed another car run completely over the recorder (tire rolls over the recorder itself), in which the recorder fly's into the air and hit the pavement again. I observed that one of the batteries had come out of the recorder. Yes the recorder was scratched up after the incident. I replaced the battery and the recorder works perfectly!!!!! I believe that this is amazing!!!!.. Great Job Olympus on a damn tough recorder!!!!!
