I have a 402 and i couldnt be happier. It has voice recording too, by the way. If youre hard on sight stick with the av420, but otherwise, try the 402. it is much smaller, and more convenient for me, since im still in school. and its cheaper, so....score. but if you want to line-in record tv and things, the AV420 for sure. i cant lie, it is pretty hard for the 402 to get movies on it, so I really think that 30 bucks goes somewhere good.
