Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, efficient, convenient, good product Fast start up, efficient controls, easy to use while on the go or at home. Comparable to some other recorders I've used in the past, but the built in USB terminal makes it easier to transfer files to my computer for conversion to text.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No backlight and inconvenient timestamp info! I need a backlight and was under the impression the WS-853 had one. I love my VS-7200 so much that I wanted to stick with Olympus so I bought this one. I was EXTREMELY disappointed when I found there was no backlight, as this is the ONLY reason I'm trying to find a replacement! On top of that, timestamps aren't displayed continuously while playing a file and there isn't even an option to change it to do so, as there is in the VS-7200. I record security log entries, at night, so a backlight is VERY helpful and displaying the timestamp's much more convenient to transcribe to my log; I have to press 5 buttons, digging through menus, for EACH file to get timestamps, my VS-7200 displays it without need to press any! Backlights should be standard, preferably that can be customized for duration and disabled to preserve battery, and at least an option to change what's displayed while playing, i.e. progress bar or timestamp.
