Excerpt: I don't understand why this tape deck is marketed to musicians. Tascam and its retailers should clarify the advertising that while overdubs can be made, this is not a multitrack recorder, so you cannot record multiple tracks and mix them later.
Excerpt: I bought a Tascam DR-100mkII about 6 months ago. I had heard good things about it and initially it performed very well -- until a few days ago (right before an important interview). Suddenly, it has a problem turning on.
Excerpt: This device records GREAT audio but do spend some time with the manual getting to know this product....as pressing the record button doesn't necessarily record. If you're not skilled in understanding the interface, there is a high opportunity for error that you wil make a mistake.
Excerpt: Let me say that this is a great product if you read the manual. The manual is 60 some pages long and the defaults that are marked in the manual aren't correct.

Pros: Does everything, Really great quality, Will Connect To Everythin
Cons: Doesn't come with charger, Must read the manual, Only Records Wav And Mp3

Excerpt: I'm a director with a tech background who works with professional sound guys. I know they will roll their eyes if they read this but sometimes I need to get sounds on my own after a project is over with and they are gone. It isnt possible to always afford to hire someone just to get a simple sound.
Excerpt: I recently upgraded from an H4n which we all had or have. If I only knew then what I know now about sound gear, I would not have bought the H4n. If you want to know the differences between the H4n and this unit, go to KenRockwell.com and read both reviews.
Pros: Dual Battery Power, Jog Wheel, many controls, Many In's And Out's, Metal Construction, Record Level Knob
