But a review in Electronic Musician (Nov. 2004) found that
the iRiver tends to drop samples which can put an audible
click into the recorded sound: "While acknowledging the
problem, iRiver points out that the H120 isn't designed for
professional work." So...uh...it's OK for recordings to be
substandard for non-professionals??

This device has great possibilities, despite the glitch. I'd
love to hear from anyone who's used it, especially in
situations where the recorder is in motion (tilted, jostled,
etc.) while recording. This came up a few months ago, but
perhaps someone has used it since then. Have you noticed
problems with the sample dropout?
