Summary: I have been wanting one of these for quite a while. I researched most of the major brands and this brand name kept coming up. I decided on the brand and then it was just a matter fo camparing various models till I settled on the GX5080A. It was the top of the line for this model and had features I wanted: LED light, DVD AND SD capability, various recording disk support, etc. It is lightweight, easy to use, and even >>>>>idiot proof.
