  • Summary: Due to poor image quality, customer service, and the difficulty of downloading to DVD, I really suggest waiting for the technology or getting a SR-100
  • Pros: Compact, large capacity, quality construction, great styling.
  • Cons: Poor image quality (not just me, other reviewers agree). Downloading far too difficult.
