My understanding is that the Sound Devices 722 and 744 are supposed to start
shipping to the dealers this month, if they haven't already done so. I
don't know of anyone who has used one yet. I'm also very interested to see
how they perform.
FYI... There is another device being developed by Sound Technology called
the ST400 that is designed to be a programmable field data recorder. It
uses an embedded Linux operating system and will exceed MIL specs, as does
all of their equipment, but it's still in beta testing so it wouldn't be
appropriate to talk about the detailed specs yet. They have a teaser web
page that gives minimal information at

the you all know
when the ST400 is released.
