Sound: I have mixed feelings about Zoom products-as they are hit or miss,but I think that Zoom portable recorders dominate the market....stunning quality and innovative features on a budget...this is as good as it gets!! The channel separation that these two little mics produce is mind blowing...incredible surround sound!! The audio quality of this recorder is so impressive,that it has multiple uses....field recording for killer samples,studio vocals and well...for anything you could dream up. Feature: The most useful features is the audio recording quality-obviously. For the money,I can find no fault with the video end of it-especially since I had no high expectations anyway.....but as you might have guessed,the camera is virtually useless in low light conditions. However though-in adequately illuminated rooms and the outdoors,this video recording works fine and it's quite decent in quality for it's tiny size. Ease of Use: Seamlessly simple and amazing results in the audio department....no learning curve whatsoever-FANTASTIC! This little gem will record ANYTHING with shockingly good results! Quality: Considering how lightweight this recorder is,the build quality is fairly decent,but I would strongly recommend that you use the velvet sack and free gig bag for storage and buy a wrist strap for it(when in use). Manufacturer Support: I have dealt with the Samson end of this company when I had a pair of Resolv 40a monitors...one channel crapped out after a year and a local repair shop bungled the repair and then I sent the speaker to Samson directly. What I received in return,is a different pair of refurbished monitors....needless to say,I was f**king pi*sed. Hopefully I will not have to deal with future repairs with this product. The Wow Factor: Tasty blue color,very large & legible LCD screen....a very sexy product! Overall: I will be satisfied with this product for as long as it lasts.

Overall: This is an awesome tool as it relates to reviewing and recording group rehearsals. I find this invaluable especially after a rehearsal when I can go back and literally see and hear with clairity and confidence what was produced. At this point I will probably get the HD model, I'm just that pleased!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
