Technical Issues

I would prefer to have something that is pretty durable. So I have also looked at the Samson H4, and the Edirol R-09. Karen Nakamura over at has written about the H4 and the Edirol, and she also seems pretty optimistic about the H2.

I wish I could test all three first before buying them. All I know is that I want to record interviews with much better audio quality than I have done in the past. Any other ideas???
