Another thing to keep in mind with the R-1 is that if by chance the
batteries run out while recording, you lose what you've recorded up
until then. Happened to me after 30+ minutes of recording. Same thing
happens if you turns the unit off while recording without pressing
stop.

Really, IMO, the best things about the R-1 are the price, and the fact
that it's incredibly portable.

Aside from the limitation I listed above, cons include the fact that it
doesn't turn off automatically after a while (even though the light
goes off, allowing greater chance that you'll forget it's on,
especially after having dumped some files to your computer), that it's
so flimsy, mini-jack input, silly FX (again, IMO), low recording
levels, and hissy internal mics.
