Please recommend a good digital voice recorder...

... my Olympus WS-320M just apparently bit the dust... won't turn on. Sucks too because I'd really like to get the current files off of it.

I'd like to stick with Olympus if I can, mostly because I have all the accessories to go with this one. I especially like how small this one is-- about the size of a cigarette lighter, and that it directly plugs into a USB port.

Ken, I don't get nearly as good quality recordings with my iPhone as I did with the Olympus...

Whose voice are you recording? Your own voice (are you dictating something) or are you trying to record lectures or interviews? I don't have any better suggestion than the iPod or iPhone, but since you've already nixed that idea some more information might help others. There are add-on microphones for the iPhone and iPods I believe.

Hi guys, it's mostly for recording lectures, therefore the speaker is some distance from the recorder. Probably I could manage something in the $100 range.

I'm pretty pleased with my similar Olympus (which hasn't yet bit the dust), but I might suggest that the quality of your iPhone recording might be improved with a dedicated external microphone. Sure it harms the portability, but if you have your iPhone with you a small external mic might be just the ticket.
