Fostex FR-2 LE - Anyone have experience with it?

I'm looking for a small, back up field recorder. I've read lots on comparable units but can't seem to find much on this one.

I usually shoot as a one man band so I'd like something with a good limiter so that once I've set the levels, I can more or less forget about it.

I also read somewhere, that at least at one point in time, Fostex products had a 99 minute file size limit. Is that the case with this unit?

Looks good on paper, but I'd like to hear from users.

Thanks

I have one and the audio quality is very good... good preamps but only 40db gain. File limit default is 2GB, but can be changed in the menu to 4GB.
Check out the Forum at Fostex.
