Summary: -I was surprised, the packaging was not accurate. The handy recorder package was bossed, saddle-backed on top side. Maybe it was packed in a hurry. -Then accessory box looks like also was packed in rush. Contents in that box was just pressed & squished. And all excitement on my face become serious. At least product was not damaged by that. -Of course I WILL recommend your product to others, I know you, guys, can pack it accurately.
After a rough start it does the job intended. Mixed review.

Summary: I had the H-4 Zoom recorder and it was great except that there was no time/date stamp which made for a lot of extra work. This one is smaller, comes with a better stand but the product is flimsy in comparison. The H-4 is more complicated, more difficult to set up than the H-2, so that is an improvement. Upon opening the flap to insert the memory card the teeny feet on the flap broke instantly.
Summary: I've had my H2 since September, and used it in a variety of professional broadcast situations, with mixed success. The recorder worked well when recording from a line level or mult box feed at mic level. I loved flipping out the card and putting it into my laptop's SD slot to get the files in quickly for edits.
Summary: The good.... Great sound! (does mostly what claimed) Very compact, self-contained with internal mic's & such) The bad.... A bit confusing to operate at first (small buttons, small screen)... sit down & play with it awhile. Keep an eye on the flashing/solid red light (Sometimes pushing the button does not start recording) Side switch's (off/on & sensitivity) are easily moved (especially when putting in in/out of it's little bag) The ugly..... Horrendous battery life...
Outstanding recording quality and versatility, but poor power management shows inexperience of the designer

Summary: Many excellent reviews have been written on this product. I hope what I write is not mere repetition. I'm pretty sure the parts that are related to voice-recognition and power management are not commonly covered by other reviewers. I hesitated to rate it a three star, thinking that it might deserve more, but did it because of its poor power management and poor screen. Pros: (1) Outstanding recording quality. This truly is good enough for professional studio recording.
Summary: so, I bought the H2 a few weeks ago on Amazon, and was as excited as any musician would be. I put it through it's paces, recording quiet moments, as well as recording Live Rock band rehearsals, and also 2 live rock shows. It is definitely small and it works easy, and if it breaks, I'm not gonna go broke. Although the sound quality was iffy. In comes the Tascam DR-1.. I was hesitant at first, realizing it just came out and I couldn't find reviews.
Summary: Köpte denna när den kom ut och har använt den till inspelning av konversationer, musik, filmljud, med mera. Då jag redan hade en Sony Hi-MD MZ-RH10 med mikrofonen Sony ECM-MS907 så fick H2 en tuff jämförelse som den inte riktigt stod pall för vad gäller ljudkvalitén. MD:n var så så mycket mer genomtänkt för ljudinspelning. H2 upplevs som väldigt plastig, men är mycket smidig i kompatibilitet och överföring till PC.
