Default Need a digital recorder

Hello, I really want to start recording gigs and rehearsals, so I'm lookin to buy a recorder. Ive heard a lot of great things about the Zoom H2. Can anyone recommend other quality products that do the same thing?

Thanks

The Zoom H2 and H4 recorders are excellent, as are the new Yamaha Pocketrak recorders. All produce good quality results with the built-in microphone sets and also have been reviewed positively in all the relevant publications.

I have an H4 and its advantage over the H2 for one is the XLR connectors on the bottom. I just recorded some stuff to get it tweaked in. I have used 2 overheads and I have used 1 overhead and 1 bass drum mic. Nice and handy. I will use the built ins next to get a comparison. If you can afford the H4 I would spend the extra.

I have an Olympus LS10 and am completely satisfied with the recordings it makes. $400.00 US.... The built in XY stereo condenser mics are a joy.
