Comparing the Zoom H2 with the H1, I am not sure that the H2 is still not the better deal. As you say the H2 costs less than $150 US and comes with a lot of options. Most significantly, it has 4 microphones which gives you better stereo imaging (or at least that's what they say). Also it can be attached directly to a computer as a USB microphone. Plus it comes with the accessories like a power adapter, USB cable, windscreen, stand, etc that is an additional $25 US package for the Zoom H1.
The smaller H1 would probably be better for people that don't want to mess with menus (since all functions have a dedicated button). That and it doesn't look like a cheap electric shaver.
I'm thinking maybe getting the inexpensive Zoom H1 now and wait for the prices to come down on the higher-end recorders in a few years when I am ready for fancy features.
