Summary: Great for quick interviews. Small & light weight. Works well as an alternate recorder or back-up to my main set-up when on location. Connected to my shotgun mic and taped to the bottom of the boom pole makes for a fast, down-n-dirty running tool.
Pros: Compact Design, High Quality Sound, Long Battery Life, Reliable
Summary: Have used it for about 3 weeks. Quality of recordings using "line-in" is great. Choice of MP3 bit rate in the unit itself saves time in ecoding and uploading sermons. We also use it to record rehearsals so everyone can hear what needs improving and what works. Only drawbacks are 1) can't record on the unit while plugged in to USB port and 2) battery life seems a wee bit short. I'd get the wall charger.
Summary: What sets this device apart from other similar recorders (e.g., Edirol) is the overdubbing feature. This device would be almost perfect if you could track while using the metronome feature. What's the point of having a metronome included - If you can't use it for recording purposes? Near-perfect timing is essential if you want to create a soundfile that you can work with in a professional setting.
Summary: Got it for an interview type of situations. It has a quarter inch jack input so you can plug in a dynamic mic. Also, it has a 1/8 inch stereo input for an external stereo mic or you can use the built in mics. It has effects which can be recorded and/or used pre or post recording. Many options - simple controlls - What else can you ask for!!!
Pros: Consistent Performance, Durable, Easy To Set Up
