      The reason i've bought this product is because i'm using the Olympus LS-10 digital voice recorder for recording lectures. I use it a lot. Sometimes i want to pause the recording in the middle of the lecture, so i need this remote control device in order to pause/resume the recording remotely.
      Well, it works, which is great :)
      However, the connection is optical, which means that the remote control has to be in sight of the recording device. The angle activation angle and distance are pretty poor.
      In other words, if the are some things in between (books,...) then i can't use the remote control. This is pretty bad. In fact this makes this remote control almost useless and very frustrating. If i'd know about this, i'm not really sure i'd have bought it :(

          simple remote control, but made life (use of recorder) so much easier. the range (distance) and angle of use far exceeds the spec sheet. wonderful. b&h price beat the brand's online store and shipping was fast. thanks.

            I tested the RS-30W control with the models LS-10, LS-7 and DM-620. No complaint. Satisfactory range of action if properly positioned.

                My wife and I record ourselves on an Olympus LS-11 recorder when practicing music, both to monitor personal progress and to make accompaniment tracks for other musicians. It is nice to have this little remote to start and stop recording remotely from the recorder which is mounted on a tripod for optimum ambient sound pickup. It works as advertised and is as simple as possible. The simplicity is nice for minimizing confusion. On the other hand, it would be nice to have a few more features on the remote such as play, and the arrow pad, which is why I give this item 4.

                        I use the RS-30W remote with an LS100 so that I can mount the recorder 15 feet above the floor to record a 100-person band. It works just fine. The LED confirming light is bright enough to ensure that I am not making a mistake. The only downside is the tiny size of the components, which I suspect will be easy to misplace in my gear bag.

                                  Much smaller than i expected. Smaller than a book of matches. Range is about 30 feet if you point directly at the receiver. Off at an angle, range is less. Would have liked to have known about the range of operation before I bought it, but probably would have bought it anyway. Just a bit disappointed, but not enough to send it back. Transmitter could get misplaced, it's so small, but that small size also could be an advantage in some circumstances. Gave it 4 stars because I would have preferred to learn about the range issue before I bought it. Felt a bit entrapped, that's all. No big deal.

                                        You MUST have one to avoid noise each time you start, pause, re-start and stop recording!
                                        The tiny red led is very usefull for operation confirmation.
