Value For Money : Excellent
After going through a tascam and a big fat KORG D3200, I finally opted for this little all-in-a summary.
I use it personally for models quietly, I am content to a mac and garage band with a small condenser microphone Prodipe taken for guitar / voice + a set of low-end in t-bone taken for battery. Bah, and it's fine with me:) Far from being an engineer, I just want equipment that allows me to get something listenable in a short time. The zoom is fine. By pushing it into a corner, I'm sure we can achieve results very nice if indeed that is somewhat comfortable with software mao a little more efficient.

Used with garageband. Few bugs.

Drivers needed, even on mac, but then it's a breeze.

I use it for a few months, I tested two other models before. Tascam a very basic, and a Korg compelxe for me too.
Excellent quality / price ratio: posted not far from € 550, I could bring it back around € 415 a little negotiating with the store manager. Great deal for the money, I do not at all want to part with it.
