Controls feel solid. Connectors well made. Be sure to get a case for it. Vibration does not affect this device unless a hard disk is used.Marantz has all the essential features included for almost any type of location recording situation.Best feature is that you can record to solid state compact flash card. Capacity is currently limited only by how much CF card you can afford. Also note: be sure to test the CF card thoughly, be sure you can both record and play back. Some cards (do not use "high speed" cards) may not do one or the other (playback or record). I used a 1GB PQI Brand card and it works great.The most disappointing non-feature is the use of USB 1.1 instead of USB 2.0 for file transfers. Time is money, and transfer rates with USB 2.0 aresubstantially better than USB 1.1. You could of course, just pull out the CF card and transfer to computer directly. (With my CF card this cuts about half the transfer time.)Once you see for yourself how it works, the device is very easy to use; just like a cassette recorder.I understand the high demand for this type of item and why they CAN charge so much for it, but really, when compared to complex electro/mechanical devices like VCR's this device is way overpriced. Hopefully, as recording pro's "bite the bullet" and purchase the device, they will see how useful, and rugged, this device is, and the price will come down substantially in the near future.The converters are quiet and transparent, and the various bit rates and recording modes cover it all. The BEST feature is of course, the digital limiter. Very needed for those live performances.Would also be nice if Marantz used "combo" XLR jacks. (Both XLR and 1/4" TRS in the same body).
