Item not as described and damaged.

  • Summary: This item was not in working order. It appeared to be fine until you atempt to use it. It would power up but upon putting a tape in the camera would not function. It gave an error message and said to re-incert tape and every time you did it nothing would happen. Just continued to get the error message. Item can appear to be in working order but will not work when you try to use it....

My JVC Camcorder Experience!

damizzizz2008, Ebay
21 May 2010
  • Summary: I decided to buy this camera after researching which camera would be useful for doing YouTube videos. I spent $200 on a generic digital all-in-one camcorder but the quality wasn't very good. I heard that using the older model camcorder provided better quality videos minus the convenience of the various storage options such as SD cards. I now understand why the JVC GR-D33 got so many reviews when it came out in 2004.

JVC producrs defective

I. Hargitai "Net Shopper", Amazon
3 November 2007
  • Summary: Not just this JVC camcorder, but all of them will have the "safeguard mode error" pop up and the unit will be rendered useless at that point. Just say NO to JVC.

Buyer Beware -- JVC mini DV camcorders

N. Douglas Payne, Amazon
25 December 2006
  • Summary: I can tell you from personal experience with JVC mini camcorders that purchasing one is an expensive mistake. Even with a protection plan from Circuit City, Best Buy, etc., the units are EXTREMELY fragile (esp. the cassette loading/ejecting apparatus) and the now infamous "E04 Safeguard Mode" (go ahead, Google it) message will eventually appear and that will be the end of recording digital videos with a JVC mini DV camera.
