Thanks for that, banl - VERY helpful.
Those sound samples indicated a bass boominess in the much advocated Zoom H2, compared to the Sony PCM M10 and other more expensive alternatives.
I am looking really hard at the Sony PCM-M10.
Started first looking at the Zoom models - then spied the Tascam models - then the Sony (it has a remote control).

Conversations in this thread and many product reviews in Youtube were very helpful for my choice. Although I have used the product for only a couple of days, I am very satisfied with it so far.
My primary needs for a recorder were simple; to record sound of my play while practicing, and to listen to the recordings in decent sound quality for evaluation of my plays. There could be many products in the market to satisfy my needs though, here is my rationale behind my choice.
1. The H2 is widely used by many musicians and plentiful information is there in internet (e.g. http://www.2090.org/zoom/bbs/viewforum.php?f=15)
2. Good cost performance with decent sound quality and reasonable price
3. The display faces to me at upright position, so I can check the recorder status and the level meter while recording my play.
4. The auto recording function (i.e. Auto Start/Stop by sound level and with pre-record) allows me to record my play repeatedly without manipulate any control buttons. The function creates recording files at every interval. It makes me easy to select a file of the best play.
5. Allow to record front and back at upright position. It could be useful while taking a lesson with placing the H2 between my instructor and me.

recordings of my band. I could go, for example, feed the PA into 2 tracks and use the other two for drums and
un-miked instrument amps. It turns out that just using the built in mics, with some careful thought to placement, yielded perfectly usable recordings for the purpose of critiquing band performance. Good enough to let someone I don't know listen to? Nope. But certainly good enough for internal use.
It makes really good quality recordings of my classical guitar playing - probably good enough for external consumption. I'm thinking though it's probably overkill for recording and critiquing solo instrument practices.
And I'm finding it dead easy to use. Spent about 20 minutes with the manual and was up and recording.
