Mea Culpa - now feel the remote is well worth having

Amending my first comments regarding the accessory pack. I'd placed all the packaged cables in the hard case I use to store everything for my H-5 in, and since the remote has a cable attached to it, I never noticed that there IS an extension cable (10'?) for the remote included. Hard to see the jacks on the cables packaged in the box while they're in their packaging, and I had assumed one was for the plug-in power pack, and the other an extra download cable for transferring files to my PC. Perhaps labels are called for, but at any rate I'm glad I finally noticed it!

Consider your needs

Bought this accessory pack along with my Zoom H-5 mainly to have the plug in power option and the remote. Battery performance has been so good with Ni-MH rechargeable batteries that I don't think the plug in power is a necessity. I like the fact that the battery run time is strong and that the battery charge indicator on the H-5 screen gives an accurate reading. Just be sure to set the battery mode to the right battery you're using (Ni-MH or Alkaline). Although I gave the H-5 itself the top rating (its a WINNER!), I rated the accessory pack low. Main reason is that the "remote" was a bit disappointing in that it needs to be plugged into the unit, and the wire is not very long at all. That kind of defeats its purpose if the recorder has to be positioned further than this short wire will reach. I'm going to look for (or make up) my own extension cable using female & male jacks to extend its reach and see what happens. Otherwise, the actual operation of the H-5 via the remote is fine. Just no difference in having to get up and move to push a button on the unit or the remote whenever the cable doesn't reach far enough. One shouldn't have to tweak the remote for use at a reasonable distance based on what you've already paid for it.
