Thanks for providing this url, Josh. I'm always ready to learn.

Since my point of reference is the Zoom H2, this website's snobby, snarky, ever-so-clever, and mainly vacuous value judgements about the H2 mean that this website has no credibility with me.

To wit:
"The Zoom H2 is a Not-Great audio recorder. Amongst all the options that litter the large field of Not-Great audio recorders out there, I'm now willing to say that the Zoom H2 is probably at the top of the heap of said inexpensive, lo-fi, Not-Great audio recorders. It is cheap. It does a decent job for the money. And those two factors are its primary virtues: being cheap and being the least crappy of the crappy."
