I have the Zoom H2. Three things that suck:
    1) no level adjustment for the line in before the converters
    2) the mic sensitivity switch has three positions. The lowest 
sensitivity is already too sensitive when trying to record an acoustic 
jazz trio.
    3) you need to set date/time info again every time you exchange 

Apart from that, it works fine, really.

So due to (2) aboove, you might have problems with the "live gig" use case.
