I just came across the Zoom MRS 1608 as a resale deal today. I was 1st interested in a computer studio set up and was sold on convenience regarding this digital multi-track recorder. Exactly how good of an item is this and will I eventually regret this purchase?

(moved your topic here where it makes more sense..)

no doubt you have more options to build your music on a conputer based setup.
for the price given in this short review you could actually get a pc with a minimal but decent soundcard.
if you are not familiar with pcs this zoom unit may be a quick way to get started, but i feel you will run into limitations when you get more serious about your productions.
to get a good final mix you need to be able to apply at least equalizing, compression and some effects to the individial tracks. i am not sure how convenient this unit is for doing so. i'd say: try to read as nuch as possible about what is possible with this unit and compare with what you actually need in your situation. (sounds stupid, but this is something you have to do for yourself)

gonna weigh in with interruptor on this and say you could get a good Mac or a so so PC as well as a multi channel audio IO unit for that money and probably do the job better in software.

I personally use an iMac with either GarageBand (free) or Logic Express ($300) and a Presonus Firebox audio interface. Im not crazy about the Firebox though and would rather get the new MOTU Ultralite, but no budget right now.

I will say I've looked at units like the Zoom for doing live shows, but I dont have money to burn on something like that right now.
