Boss BR-1180

Anybody have one?I've had mine for about two years , and recently it froze up.O ver the last two years I've owned it, it would sometimes freeze in the middle of a recording and produce a high pitched beep.I think it needs to be sent to Roland for servicing since I can't even get past the hard drive error indicator.Anyone else have this problem?Other than this, the machine is awsome and I highly recomend it.

I have had the smaller version, the Boss 864 for about 18 months. This worked flawlessly for the]first 13 months, then like your's it froze during use. I returned it for repair/a diagnosis and after 7 weeks it was returned but within a month the fault remanifested itself. Again another lengthy period and it was returned and touch wood, no problems since.
I would add, that the claims that it is very easy to use are simply not true. Yes, you can slap a guitar in and record with little fuss, BUT the moment you attempt to step outside the box and attempt anything else and you get into the horrific cycle of menus and coupled with the dire instruction book, you will waste hours attempting to do something that really should be easy- be warned, it is NOT a simple piece of kit and far far far too complicated for its own good.
