Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? not really , i was expecting beter from zoom, i have had this since august of last year i only used it about ten times, the vidio isnt great, the audio is fantastic, last week i had trouble getting the sd card out, and it broke the insert i can only use it if i tape the sd card in, i will be sending it back Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? audio recordings 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? easy Sound How is the tone? as i said the sound is fantastic Reliability How has it stood up over time? for 300 bucks i would expected better, it bokr in less than a year General Your general opinion of this product. i would only use this if you were to record outdoor performances, using this indoors the vidios are blotchy,and any bright lights, even at the right settings create white out spots, but the audio part is great, i have recorded live shows, just put it on a tri pod, but vidio lacks zoom capabitities
Good unit for the money

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great features. Great interface. Good quality picture or video if in decent light. Sound is not as good as I thought, but fair for the price and better than most of it's competition. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The only missing feature at this range is a input or mic dial. Not a big fan of the Low, Hight and Auto. 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've done a lot with this little unit and have never really needed the manual. Very easy to use interface and/or menu setup. Sound How is the tone? The built in mics are just ok. I use the input more than the mics. Guess I was hoping for something a little better. But I do use the mics from time to time, but most of what I do just seems better if I use the input feature. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Electronics = Good Plastic Casing or product = Pretty week or poor *Just be careful with it General Your general opinion of this product. Would like more control over the input or mic volume and would like to see some kind of effective stabilizer, but for the money it's really a pretty good unit.
