Tom, H2n implements everything wrong with H2 improved. You need to check one out before disparaging them.
SD can also be used in birght sunlight, the meter lights can be turned up to painfully bright!
I have both, and SD is the best - it contains my premium mic pres as well as the best A/D convertors. Worth the price!

>> The Sound Devices 722 is a Flash/Hard Drive recorder which retains the old school form factor, has great mic preamps, and excellent metering. I like a recorder that I can hide in a bag and operate by feel as I chase a sound source down the street and the 722 fills the bill. Yes, it's a bit pricey but entirely worth it.
>> That said I like the Zoom H2N too, a nifty little deck for $200 and it fits in my shirt pocket.
