The Olympus WS-400S is a sleek, stylish, and advanced WMA-compatible digital voice recorder that supports both standard and high-quality stereo recordings. With stereo recording, the unit can handle approximately 69 hours (LP). And after completing their recordings, users can connect the device directly to a PC (USB), allowing them to easily upload, organize, listen to, AND e-mail their voice recordings with ease. Included also is a large LCD screen for viewing recording data. Plus, the WS-400S comes with five embedded folders, each capable of handling up to 200 files. Truthfully, the WS-400S is poor in recording time AND battery life — only 21 hrs — versus its peers (VN-5200PC; VN-6200PC), but makes up for that with high-quality records with zero noise and interference.
