Value For Money : Excellent
How long have you use it?

I used it a week in a shooting fiction

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

I tried the H4N and the Edirol R-4 and a souddevice mixer whose output was connected to a recorder. For value for money, the H6 is unbeatable!

What thing do you like most and least?
Goodies:
- Changeable caps and the possibility of two XLR inputs of plsu (without phantom, however)
- The preamp quality more than the price seen cprrecte
- Gain control preamps easily accessible

Cons:
- Controls gains are a little too easy to turn: you can make grox chagements in essyant to make an adjustment
-The Control headphone volume is under the grip of such headphones: vriament impractical to adjust the volume listening or recording.
- Almost all controls (low-cut, compressors, phantom, etc.) are only accessible through menus. Setting long especially if you want to record quickly!
- I used it for a shoot of fiction. The ergonomics of the XLR is poorly suited for use in a bag soundman.
- The screen is almost invisible in the sun

How would you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice? ...

The best value on the market in my opinion. For portable recorder, for a sound card or a register of fiction: Great! I do not take for the documentary: it's too long to make adjustments and you can miss a catch.
I do not have yet but it is on the list!
