Welcome to HRC.
Well sadly to say, no there are not really any more user friendly digital recorders out there with the kind of bells and whistle's that one has. There are a couple that are very bare bones that might be only slightly more user friendly, but I have seen a few post's of confused user's of those units as well.
I downloaded and had a quick once over of the manual for your unit though and it appears to have a very good overview which describes the unit and its functions very well and with pretty decent detail. There is as well a very complete quick start section that you could jump to once you have read through the over view to get familiar with the unit.
I think most of the units today you will find are about the same as far as the units being user friendly. I know that isn't the news you wanted to hear, but it is the reality of the tech advancements on these things.
