How playable do you consider this product to be? Read the manual, practice a bit and you are up and running. Sound How is the tone? excellent audio specs and performance Reliability How has it stood up over time? Only issue so far is the door for SD cards is a bit flimsy and can open and eject the card, which will cause any unsaved audio recorded to be aborted. Be careful and you will be fine. General Your general opinion of this product. They hit a home-run with this one because they listened to users and updated the product based on their feedback.
Good to go

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well made. Again, it could use a little more protection around the plastic mics. And a better carrying case... the compromise ok by me for a great sound, and reachable price. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Definitely the 4 track simul-recording! The only feature I would add is a metal bar over the built-in mics. I had one pop off on me when taking a light blow from a tri-pod. Fortunately it didn't require an expensive repair. Also, the plastic cases with [both, I have 2!] of my H4n's are not good protectors, and the latches spring open unexpectedly from time-to-time. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? I agree with most that say it's a bit complicated getting started...but if you use it frequently you'll zip through the settings and controls. Sound How is the tone? As stated by me and others who own this product, it's just great compared to anything in the price range! I shoot video and use (2)H4's on mic stands in corners of the rooms, and just let them run all night in stamina mode. I get a feed from the board, and use my camera mic. I then striped them all down in a my editing software, and have fun getting an incredible sound that rivals some of the best concert footage I've ever listened to! I also have a few originals bands that I play guitar with, and we record EVERYTHING!! I've made pro-sounding, finished CD's from casual jam sessions using the H4n, and my editing/mastering sw! Just an awesome tool to have! Don't hesitate to buy one for work or play. You'll LOVE IT! Reliability How has it stood up over time? FIRST OFF....WHY are people writing a review here that haven't used the product but for a week??!! That's just ludicris. I've owned my first H4Nn for a year, I picked up a second H4n a few months ago. Except for the bump I had mentioned earlier, both units have performed perfectly ...and indeed have survived falls on "concrete" to the bodies only. The built-in plastic mics will break with a direct hit. I tape the windscreens on [needed or not] for added physical protection. General Your general opinion of this product. For the dough?! There's NOTHING that can compete with the sound quailty and versatility of these units! My only complaint is with the over-ladden, feature fest. Most users will never use the effects, or tuner... and metronome?!
This took my production to another level
