best way to record sound on a low budget?

I bought myself the 7D a couple of months ago and started to use it for the shorts I'm shooting. The only problem, as all of you probably know, is the audio.
A buddy of mine recently told me about the ZOOM H4N. I checked it out over the internet but thought I would ask people who understand something about that before I spend that kind of money.
It would be great if you guys could share some of your thoughts on this.

I always recommend reading Tomlinson Holman's "Sound for Film and Television" as a first point in learning how to record professional quality sound. His initials are the "TH" in THX, he developed the system.
I'm now using the new Sound Devices USB Pre 2 outboard sound card with a netbook and Sound Forge Studio for recording. It's working extremely well. Not cheap but still more than $1,000 less than a standalone Sound Devices or Nagra professional digital recorder
