Great Recorder Power Button Poor Design

Worni, B&H Photo
30 May 2014
  • Excerpt: This is an excellent hand held field recorder with an easy interface for menu navigation. The quality using the built in mikes is very usable, even better when you plug in external condenser mikes powered using the on board phantom power. We have a dozen of these in the Dept of Cinema at SFSU. The only defect is a very poor design on the power button. It is hinged and if pressed too hard will break off and fall inside the case.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy Menu Navigation, Easy To Use, Versatile
  • Cons: Poor Power Button Design

Great Product

  • Excerpt: This is very easy to use. The interface is intuitive. I was using a Zoom H4N. The Tascom is much better. It allows you to concentrate on the interview and not the recording. Recording audio was easy and sounds great.

Easy to use

Holofernes, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I primarily record the speaking voice, and often work with stage actors who use extreme dynamics and a wide pitch range for expression. I have a pair of AKG Perception 220 condenser mics and had been using a Tascam US-600 interface with a small laptop with fine results. When the laptop died, I tried using my Dell XPS PC (with Win 7) but had a severe crackling noise that increased with signal level.

Almost Perfect

  • Excerpt: Of all the handheld digital recorders on the market, the Tascam DR-100mkII is my favorite. I own several, including the older DR-100 and a Zoom H4N. Much has been written about the DR-100mkII, so rather than posting a full review, I'll simply list the high points that set it apart from the pack. 1. Battery life: Using the built-in battery pack and a pair of fully charged Sanyo Eneloop XX AA NiMH batteries (apx.
  • Pros: Battery Life, Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Startup Time, Versatile

clear winner for USBPre 2 companion

tbheys, B&H Photo
4 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought the DR-100mkII instead of newer choices like the DR-60D or H6 because I needed the S/PDIF input to work with the superior preamps of my USBPre 2 from Sound Devices. It works flawlessly, and I'm getting top quality recordings now. There was past only one small hitch: you have to set the sampling rates of both devices to be the same for the digital input to recognize the USBPre 2...

DR-100mkII

Dan, B&H Photo
3 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Although this product is several years in the market remains an excellent choice that maybe I could still be overtaken by other recorders in its price range. I decided to try to add this recorder to capture video with a Lumix GH2 and found it very good combination. Use of this recorder is easy and has great potential to slowly start testing their hardware.

Some features don't work - Complicated

Giant Video, B&H Photo
1 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Now that I've had this unit past the return period I'm even more frustrated with it. Be aware: There is no online or telephone customer support that I can locate. Many features that are described in the manual, like internal speaker, fast forward in playback mode, and input volume control, simply do not work. There is no one to contact for answers.
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, Poor Sound Quality, Weak
