Summary: Purchased this little gem as a songwriting aid. I could not be any more happy with it. I like to record my new songs, listen to them, make changes, re-record them, and repeat. This is very time consuming and costly in a pro studio. Quick and easy with the Zoom Q2HD.
Pretty good sound however the biggest thing is that YOU ...

Summary: Pretty good sound however the biggest thing is that YOU MUST BE CAREFUL. Not only does it have a low battery life (I am talking about EXTREMELY low) it's pretty fragile. If you buy the kit with it the tripod stand circular table can crack if you tighten the video recorder too tight.
Great Sound - Great Value (Just Figure Out How Everything Works Before Using it for Best Results!)

Summary: I love love love this video recorder. I followed the advice of other reviewers to make sure to download the HandyShare software included on the 2 GB memory card first before switching to a larger card (32 GB SDHC).
This AV recorder is great, the sound and picture quality really surprised me

Summary: This AV recorder is great, the sound and picture quality really surprised me! It takes just a little learning curve to determine how it works best for your needs but once you're used to it and use it regularly it's really a piece of cake!
Summary: This is not a good all-around video camera. But it excels--especially for the price--in certain situations. I needed a foolproof way to record classes/lectures at our church, with the emphasis being on good audio.
Summary: This camera is excellent! I bought it to record my violin students' performances. Great sound quality. My only complaint is that it eats batteries-- you can plug it in, but when that isn't easy, you definitely go through batteries fast.
Summary: This was a steal of a deal on a great piece of equipment. The university I go to started using these to record lessons, ensemble work, conducting sessions, as well as recitals. This thing can do it all and I have already been putting it through the paces. A must have for the serious music student.
Summary: The sound quality on this Q2HD is excellent but it's not good HD playback using it's MDMI output, the video smears on my big LCD screen. It has a lot of nice features and it's operations manual is better than average.
