Excerpt: I use this product for wedding videography, it has great sound quality. Its so tiny I can put it anywhere, even in a groom's pocket with a lav. Its been worry free so far. The sound quality is great. The only thing that lacks is the plastic build quality. It feels cheap.
Feels cheap, but excellent features and fantastic sound quality in a portable solution.

Summary: Product arrives and I open the box. The recording unit, microSD card with SD adapter, and one battery are included inside. No product manual :( but there was two papers that had a download access code to get their free audio software online. I pick up the recorder and am a bit surprised by the feel of it, as it's very lightweight and the plastic that it's made of feels cheap. This will end up being my least-favorite part about the Zoom H1 - the cheap casing and buttons.
Excerpt: This unit goes anywhere and is a perfect entry-level accompaniment to interviews, music, family events, like my 2nd old granddaughter conversing with her 92 great old great grandmother. The zoom performs as advertised.
Excerpt: I have used this recorder for some mandolin music and it has come out better than I could have hoped. Crisp sounds and the ability to mount it on tripods during recordings is great option. For this price it a 5 star purchase.
Excerpt: This is a great little addition to your audio arsenal. I needed a recorder that I could hook up a lav system to (without dropping a lot on a wireless system) for shooting weddings. This is small enough to where I can conceal it in the officiant's coat pocket and still capture decent audio. I wouldn't say this is a long-term solution to capturing audio, but for what it is, it does a great job.
Excerpt: I am starting to do short film documentaries and needed sound bites to add within. I heard about various online site that you can buy sound fx/music from. I needed ambient forest sounds, running water, computer typing sounds and a subway environment sound (to name a few). I then saw and read the reviews about this mic.
Pros: Clarity, Clearity, Easy to use, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
Excerpt: For the price this recorder is great. I have it used to record from a mixer with no problems, I have used the onboard Mics recording with above than expected range results. The use of the auto-level is great so I dont have to worry about how hot my signal is.
Pros: Auto Signal Level, Line-in Recording, Small Footprint
