    Ideal for interviews and lectures

    • Easy operation
    • Large storage capacity
    • Quality recordings
    • Ideal for recording lectures
    • Compact
    • no carrying bag

    This device does exactly what it's supposed to do for me: record lectures in a large auditorium. Even placed at a distance from the speaker, the sound quality is still very good. Great purchase!

    It really does what it says in the description.

    I like it very much. Used for student group conversations. Makes clear recordings even when the student is further away from the device.

    Cheap great simple voice recorder with large capacity.

    Ans Ouweneel | 7 August 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • user friendly
    • excellent value for money
    • even a fold-out standard cover
    • rechargeable with USB stick
    • slow down and speed up playback capability
    • the slide of the USB connector slides with difficulty
    • slightly wider than previous voice recorder from other brand (Sony)
    • the plastic housing looks a bit thin, vulnerable, less sturdy

    User-friendly device with good sound quality, 8 GB is large recording capacity for a fairly cheap purchase price. And extras such as rechargeable via built-in USB stick (to be connected to the computer for charging) and a fold-out cover so that the device can be tilted like a microphone when recording. And slow down and speed up capability during playback! I also like: large display and almost all control buttons together below the display and not on the side. And included case!

    great product. Value for money.
    • Very sensitive microphone
    • The huge battery life
    • Voice Balancer in capturing the voice of the speaker far away, while also helping eliminating sounds nearby
    • USB rechargeable
    • 8GB built-in memory which is a lot.
    • Took some time to optimize the strings for recording.
    • Goes to standby too early. No way to change that.

    The product is good. I am mainly using it for recording lectures. The 'Voice Balancer" mode does a good job of capturing the voice of the professor for far away. Also if you set the recording level to Auto, it becomes really sensitive and captures all noise really well.

    However if you are recording it in a room with a lot of echo, then it's not that great.

    The WS-853 is a great voice recorder with good 8GB internal
    • Internal memory
    • Recording time
    • Battery Expensive
    • None.wav
    • External 3.5mm mic input

    The WS-853 is a great voice recorder with good 8GB of internal memory and battery life. Due to the only recording format of .mp3, the recorder is less suitable for sound or video professionals.

    User-friendly recording device!!!
    • the usb connection
    • clear buttons
    • real on/off button

    This is a nice, user-friendly device.

    Previously I had a Philips. Not a bad device in itself. But a cable had to be inserted to put the files on your computer (where is the cable?) and the on/off button was a kind of sliding thing that I always did wrong. There were also functions combined on buttons, so I never got the shot right the first time.

    What a relief than this device.... With the extendable USB you can transfer the files to your PC or Mac in no time. No silly buttons. So a winner!

    I am satisfied.
    • SCENE button is interesting for easily pointing out important points in a recording.
    • No screen backlight.

    My next one must have backlight.
    And also an FM tuner.
    Also rechargeable.
