I've been researching this for a while, too.

Even smaller options:

Zoom H2 (quality unknown, but it's cheaper and smaller than the H4)

Edirol R09 - these are on eBay right now for around $325 plus
shipping brand new, which is the cheapest price I've seen. They're
said to boot faster than the Zoom H4, and I hear good things about
them. I just ordered one to replace my aging mini-disk recorder.

You might look at the Sound Professionals site, too. They have some
good deals on field recording gear, and even if you don't buy from
them, it's a good place to get an idea of what all is available.

Hope this helps. At some point you just have to stop looking at specs
and reading reviews, and take the plunge. My special trick is to buy
something two weeks before something smaller, better and cheaper
comes out. Oh. So, uh, maybe you should ignore my advice....
