Summary: Excellent audio ... but very poor image compared to similar products like Samsung 300 (under $100). Which the image, LCD screen, so on could come to par with other consumer grade camcorder. No image stablization.
Summary: I bought this for my son to use in college to record his teaching and conducting. He loves it and says it is much improved over the old Zoom video recorder. I recommend buying the table top tripod and a larger SD card.
Summary: The recordings aren't as good as everyone claims. The recordings of mp3s are okay at best. The video is terrible. Id give this portion a 3 as I wouldnt have expected much more. The biggest issue is power.
