The Sound Devices 722/744t looks like it could pass the "kick it down
the stairs" test, with one caveat: Its small hard disc storage medium
is   more vulnerable to the indignities of field use than other media
are.  The 722/744 does give you the option to record to Compactflash
instead of, or in addition to, the hard disc for this reason.  The
Sound Devices web pages indicate that their design includes extra
protection for the hard disc, but Murphy's Law often finds a way to
defeat good intentions.

The 744t is supposed to be released this month, with the 722 following
in September.  I'm interested in a "raw" 722, sold without hard disc
or battery, since I would use Compactflash and an external power
supply that I already purchased.
