  • Summary: I was very disapointed with the Quality and performance of this recorder. Low light settings render poor picture quality. Standard battery life one hour! Even at the highest picture quality it does less than expected for the price. Please don't waste your time and money on this model.

Stylish, convenient & crappy

Eric A. Butler, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera and loved the IDEA of being able to drop the images directly to my laptop. The process works great, the interface is cool... but the images stink on ice. In daylight the camera has a problem with shadow detail. Inside, the camera cannot see anything unless the room lights are bright. There is a lot of digital artifacting in all of the images too. The advertisement says "DVD Quality Video".

Do not waste your time and money

  • Summary: I purchased this with great expectations and figured a hard drive camcorder was the way to go. I did a lot of research and decided on this JVC model. It is reasonably easy to use, i will give it that, but this performs really bad in in low light conditions and I doing a lot of recording indoors as my wife and i just had a baby boy!

Poor Image quality across the board

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder on Friday 12/15/2006 from Best Buy. I toyed around with it in the store and it seemed like a great idea. I brought it home to shoot my sons 3rd birthday and when we turned the lights off and lit the sparklers for the cake this camcorder struggled to even stay in focus, let a lone get a decent shot of the action. I was willing to chalk this up to the low lighting conditions. My next shoot was a x-mas recital for my other boy.

JVC Does Not Stand Behind Their Products - JVC Lemoncorder

Gunnar Kossatz "Samvado", Amazon

  • Summary: I agree with the many other users who have experienced the "Condensation, Operation Paused" defect on their JVC GR-xxxx. Despite numerous others reporting this problem, JVC says its not a recognized problem. I would disagree - it is a recognized problem, but its your problem, not theirs.

Vista users do not buy this camcorder

Mr. J. W. Robson "John", Amazon

  • Summary: JVC EVERIO GZ-MG21 I bought this camcorder a while ago and was reletively pleased with it despite it's useless low light performance until my computer died and I had to buy a replacement. Every time I connected the camcorder to the new computer it caused the computer to freeze and the only solution was a full restart.
