5 out of 5 eggsGreat Voice Recorder

Comments: I am a faithful user of the Olympus DS-330 for about 3 years, and have used it to record lectures (at my college).

The recorder is great, with about 2.5 hours of recording (SP) it will fit most users needs. It's very simple to use, and the folders keep it simple to keep track of your recordings. Playback is even better, as the DS-330 has a generous speaker and several noise-reduction modes. Transferring is easy via usb1.0 and the recorder even has a handy stand.

My only qualms with the recorder are the following: No way to add more memory (my lectures can be pretty long), USB1.0 is fairly slow, must install olympus program to transfer files.
