Can't beat the price

Jerry F., Newegg

  • Summary: I found a coupon on the net to where I got it for $299. In 32bit Vista the software worked OK. To setup to record the computer screen I set up the white balance on Notepad's white window. I switched to manual exposure and bumped it twice to the left to darken it.
  • Pros: Recording on a DVD-RW Outside and inside was extremely good in Auto. The colors was real. It looked like HD to me. I was able to run them in my Panasonic recorder.

  • Cons: Software doesn't work in 64bit windows to good, but I was able to get them imported after a couple of tries.

Stupid Camcorder

Neil H., Newegg

  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Why would anyone want to record to an expensive Bluray disk when other camcorders can record to erasable 32 GB SDHC cards?

David W., Newegg

  • Pros: Cool features including the BR.
