H2: Better in built mics, smaller, cheaper, can record surround sound.
H4: Works as a four-track recorder.

the new edirols are nice. seems like the same thing as the zoom.

except twice as expensive. not heard about quality comparisons. could the edirol really be twice as good?

still interested in H2 vs Edirol

so i actually have a film project that will require a field recorder. collaborator has an H1, and we're both shooting video on GF1s (because that's what we've got). it's cheap, it syncs well with video apparently, and i guess maybe there's something to be said for keeping our equipment consistent? basically tell me why i ~shouldn't~ get the H1?

H1 is fine for a basic hand held stereo recorder. If you want more features, ability to use powered electret condensors, record in 48/24 (or even 96/24) etc I'll continue to recommend the H2. Mine (mentioned upthread) is still going strong.
