I don't have an H2, but I do LOVE my H4. I think I'd be just as happy 
with the H2 and have some cash in my accounts for other toys. The only 
thing I haven't been able to do with the H4 is to use it (or the mic 
ports on it) as a usb device on my linux box ... it probably does work, 
but it's a feature I don't need so I've not spent a lot of time fooling 
with it. BTW, the zoom folks have recently updated the H4 firmware so 
that sd cards bigger than 2gig are supported. I have a recording of me 
and my saxophone on my website recorded with the H4.
