Bob has hit it right on.
My contention with less expensive gear has always been that in order to get good sounds you have to use it within its parameters. This takes a lot of patience and experimentation. Most people give up quickly after unboxing something they think should give them mind-blowing differences when in actuality, the differences are going to be subtle at this level for sure.
The real telling point will be in the multiple tracks made with a device. There is always build-up when you are using similar or the same input no matter what the source and stacking particular nuances on top of nuances can get you a buildup of things that you might not notice in a solo or a lean number of uses situation. A lot of these things will cause you all kinds of teeth gnashing, head scratching, and general use of expletive laden language, in trying to deal with the clutter and sometimes cloudy sound this can create.
