Customer Reviews of the WS-822

Well worth it
Grabs lectures in all my oildfield safety briefings for the OSHA classes that are required consistently; and captures phone calls amazingly when divorce court heard what she would say to me over the phone! I'll never buy another DVR brand as far as things stand! I saved myself on repaid damages for all the hard times that were behind, this little investment has more than proven to have multi use beyond what I could have expected! Recordings so clear I could hear everything that was being said everytime I used it with all my hearing functions adjustable!
