I've been enthralled by this thing for a couple of years now, but 
neither we (the Vermont Folklife Center) nor I have ventured to buy one yet.

A visitor to the field recording equipment website that I maintain 
recently emailed a comment about the unit--that it has been "plagued by 
file corruption problems." This note was the first I've heard about any 
problems with the unit, and since it came out of the blue I don't know 
what to think.

Has anyone else come across this issue?  The one review I've seen of the 
FR2 was stellar.
