Subject: RE: Home recording device for practising?
If that's all you need it for, get a digital voice recorder like the Sony ICD PX312 - it can go up to 192k MP3 which is more than enough quality, and has 2Gb of storage which should give you hours of recording time.

It's got a USB connection and headphone outputs.

Good for almost everything except serious studio use and even cheaper than a Zoom H1. Mono only, but for stated application (and many others) that doesn't matter at all.

Bonzo3legs: Anything that Cooledit can do and Audacity cannot is irrelevant to the original poster's needs. No need for theft by any other name. Anyway, PC software is all very well, but you still need a mic and it's easier to put a device like a voice recorder or Zoom in the right place to get a decent recording - even a laptop with built in mic is not going to be as convenient.
