Zoom H2 Handy Recorder
Zoom H2 Handy Recorder

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 8 Feb 2011
I have been using this for a few months and it has been fantastic. It is very light and portable, ideal for taking to band practices or performances, as well as interviews or lectures. The recording quality is excellent, and it is very easy to use. You can listen to your recordings straight away (through headphones), or else upload them onto your computer where you can save them, edit them, or whatever!
Some people have criticised it for being too flimsy and not "well made"; I can see where they are coming from, but as long as you are careful with it should last. I would recommend keeping it in a hard case (I keep it in my sax case), but at the end of the day it provides great quality recordings and is small and easy to operate. A great product and well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not perfect, 8 Feb 2011
This is a good looking picture frame, and the image quality is fantastic. It is easy to use, and will display your pictures in a whole host of settings and timing. The internal memory is ok, so overall I am very happy with this purchase, but there are just 2 faults with is which would make me think twice before buying it again.
Firstly is the fact that when it is plugged into the wall, you end up with a wire twisting over the table and across the floor which, while not the end of the world, is not ideal. It just looks slightly messy, especially if it is up on a mantel piece or something (although the wire is not actually very long, and would not reach most mantle pieces).
The other design problem with this is that the USB hub sticks horizontally out the side of the frame, which looks ridiculous! I think there are other ways of storing extra photos (other than using a USB), but it was not particularly well thought out.
All in all, the frame looks good, it is a decent size and the picture quality is good, but it does still have a couple of faults.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product, 8 Feb 2011
I have been using these for a week now, and have listened to all manner of music through them, from orchestral, to pop, to jazz, opera, choral, rock... and they have performed exactly as I had hoped they would, which is to say they play back any track exactly as the producer in the recording studio would have heard it. Every detail can be heard in any genera, so if the music calls for bass, they will provide!
The noise reduction is effective, although don't expect the same "cocoon" effect as noise cancelling headphones can give. These will block out enough everyday traffic noise to allow you to listen to your music at a low volume and still notice every detail, but at the same time you will (most likely) be aware of outside noises.
My only word of warning is that changing the ear buds can be very fiddly, but you only really have to do that once. All in all, an excellent product.
