Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It seems to be made well but like almost all products of this type at this price point it it plastic. Of course most camera bodies are plastic anyway so if you are careless I don't know what to tell you. Mine came with a nice little padded bag which should keep in in good shape for may years with resonable care. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? It has high quality stereo sound. Keep in mind it is a field recorder not a high end muti-track unit. You can't mix the sound internally afterwards. It would be nice if you could somehow change the input level of the light like on a film camera but again that would be a high end video camera feature. 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? It is easy to setup and use. The manual is helpful, but don't expect miracles from the software. Sound How is the tone? The sound would probably be considered very good for what it is. Again it is basically a field recorder not a high end recorder. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I have only used it for a few months but so far it works fine. General Your general opinion of this product. I think the main thing to keep in mind is whenever you shoot video YOU NEED LIGHT. If you are expecting MTV video quality hire a professional, this will not give you that type of result. It might seem cool to play in very low lighting or more romantic but it sucks for video. Especially with this camera. It's fine for setting out in front of your band or solo performance to create a simple utube type video for the internet. It would also be helpful for constructive feedback on your overall performance or mix at a gig.
Cool tool to use

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Still feels like the H2, plastic. You would want to get a hard case for going to place to place. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? A lot of the features are like the H2 recorder. The simple mic gains, volume. 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? Very simple to use. Instructions were very easy to follow. Took about 30 minutes to get the hang of it. Sound How is the tone? The sound is great. many choices to choose which sound quality to use. Reliability How has it stood up over time? So far from the use it has been reliable. But i'm a little afraid that the plastic casing it has could break anytime. General Your general opinion of this product. Since its ease of use, great sound quality you can't go wrong with it. If you want to do serious video tapping, then you would want to get something more high end for that. The video, depending on the lighting has its limitations. But overall this is has serve the purpose I was looking for.
