    Digital Video Recorder comes with a small removable stereo microphone.
    Requires 2 batteries.
    256MB internal memory. No SD slot card unlike the Zoom H2.

    Another concern is handling noise that stand out a lot when the microphone is plugged directly into the recorder. Me with this problem less shocked with the Zoom H2.

    I could resolve the concerns of noise manipulation and increase sound quality by changing the original microphone to a stereo electret microphone conference mounted on a small foot.

    Finally the machine does not seem to be a rock-solid.

    A 97 € on amazon is a good product. However, if it again I would choose probably the Zoom H2.
