I bought this product to use in my work as a peripatetic guitar teacher in schools. I was looking for something with which to record pupils where the quality and flexibility were high and the faff factor low. I'd say the Zoom H2 fits the bill for many reasons:

(1) as soon as a recording is finished, simply plug into speakers and press play - no need to rake around looking for it - far less, return home and reformat as in the case of, say, a mini-disc recorder. Pupils like to hear their work as soon as possible and this couldn't be easier
(2) the recording quality is very high
(3) there are many choices to allow one to offset quality of recording (sampling, bit-rate etc.) against practical factors (file size, upload time etc.

Verified Purchase
Bought this to for use while making a video recording of a couple of local am-dram productions (to record the output from the sound desk while the camcorder microphones pick up the audience noise/ambience).

Having downloaded and read the owner's manual prior to purchase - it does exactly what I was expecting. I found it very easy to set up and use.

Microphone is quite sensitive to handling noise at high gain so do as is suggested in the owner's manual (attach to the mic stand adapter and hold that in a gloved hand).

Display is pretty small, though all except the bottom line shown in reverse white on black (battery status and recording time remaining) is adequately readable.

Only two gripes:
i. Unit supplied was a USA import so had 110V power supply. Planetgizmo included a 240V to 110V step-down transformer - works fine but quite hefty and hums a little.
ii. It's a pity that Zoom didn't include the facility to charge NiMH batteries inside the unit.

This is a great product and I bought it from here which means it was supplied by Photo Land.
The item arrived with the mains adaptor and the memory card missing. Photoland say they are unable to check items before posting and are unable to supply missing accessories!!!!! What ever happened to customer service?
I compromised and agreed that if they sent me a 2GB memory card by 1st Class post and posted it the next day I would consider the matter closed. They did not. I notice on the Photoland site that they only have 95% positive feedback. Hmmmmmmmmm!
Draw your own conclusions - I will not buy any further electronics from Amazon.

And now - April 2008 Photoland keep badgering me to remove these comments as they are 'harming their business'! They even offered me a £10 refund if I removed them. However my experience is that they say one thing and do another so the chances of my getting £10 would seem to be very slim. I twice offered them the chance to make the refund first and then I would modify these comments but so far they they have not responded. Yes I could have made Amazon take it back but I ordered it because I needed it urgently to record something. So I bought a memory card myself from Staples - a very reliable firm when their staff are not hiding in the stockroom!

It is a great product - I run a recording studio so might be thought to be qualified to comment.

Mine arrived from absolute music solutions and came with all the extras (UK)power addapter usb cable etc.
All you need is two AA batteries and you're up and running.
I did have an excellent Olympus voice recorder, but for live music this is streets ahead, because you can set the record volumes on the H2 but everything is fixed on a voice recoder and music is distorted at high and low pitch.
This unit is fairly straightforward to use once you get used to the duel function buttons.
The transfer to computer is slow by USB, I think it is only standard USB, but a card reader is the easy answer to that.
Also a small built in speaker would be nice for playback checking.Easy answer is a pair of small portable speakers or phones.
I gave 5 stars because the above two points are only personal niggles, the recorder performance is very good and I think you would have to pay serious money for any improvement you could notice.
