don't know it, but, like anything in digital recording, you will get good results eventually if you stick with it and spend time properly experimenting with mic placement.

I presume it has a built-in mic but...

1. can an external mic to be connected? if not, well, it might be considered quite a limited tool. If so, what are they? (1/4 inch jack, XLR etc etc)

2. do you actually require a portable recording device? do you already have a decent soundcard on your computer? do you own a laptop?

3. what software will you be using to edit the recordings you make with it?

Go to this in your browser you can down load the card manager and more importantly the pdf of the instructions.
It does work and you cna make some decent recordings using the onboard mic or by plugging in.
I have had one for some time and it is a marvel but because the controls all have different multiple fi=unctions it take some getting used to .
I find it a little fiddly because of its compact size.
The instructions are what you need and a little patience good luck.

Most importantly, will it record in a non-lossy format such as WAV? Recording in MP3 may result in 'twittering' problems with music.

As Matt said, do you really need it to be portable? If you do, make sure it has a removable memory card (usually SD or CF) rather than internal memory or mini hard drive. Not only does it mean you can swap it when it fills up, but you can probably use an ordinary card reader to take the files from it.

Also wise to remember that equipment using memory cards tend to use FAT, limiting the file size to 4Gb. So an 8Gb card won't give you 8Gb of continuous recording!
