    I've never dealt with portable recorders so I could use some advice. All I need is 1-2 channels with built in mic pre's and a monitor out put. It has to be able to record 1-2 hours of audio at a time. It doesn’t need to be high quality just clean. I just want to record the pasture doing his sermon at church.

    I need one, or preferably two channels to record at one time. I also need the storage medium to hold a minimum of 1 1/2 hours of audio. Physical size is not really an issue.

    That sounds perfect for you. Get a big flash card.

    yup, one of those would be good with a decent mic: Maybe Beyer MCE 530 so as not to break the bank.

    How big can you buy the cards?

    I found this one but there was no info on it on the Fostex website. I would assume it is the same as the one you mentioned only with a hard drive, but I hate to assume anything. Do any of you have any info on it?

    Yup pretty much the same animal, but HD not Flash Memory. Cards come in up to 1Gb. But a big card will cost about $100 so maybe the extra for the HD portastudio would be a good investment.

    Same quality - same with regard to everything except storage medium.

    Go for it!!

    All your other options would be a darn sight more.

    You also should look into the Sony Hi-MD. Go to http://www.minidisc.org for all the info you will need.
