Summary: Great camera for the money. Of course these cameras have been rendered obsolete with the advent of micro digital media. I do have a lot of tapes that I will convert to DVD using this camera. -Dave
Summary: Product is malfunctioning. Didn't have the battery charger; which was not disclosed in the device display. During video is played back, the pictures show grid lines that distort quality of the actual images.
Feature-wise, pretty good, BUT horrible reliability

Summary: I have owned this camera for nearly 3 years. Yet, in that time, the camera has been used for less than 6 hours. And I know that for sure because I bought three 2 hours tapes and have yet to use all three of them. I am happy with the image it can capture.
Summary: We bought the JVC to replace a old canon Mini DV Cam. We were a little hesitant about buying refurb. Overstock shipped right away, packed the Cam perfectly and we received the product promptly. I would definately recommend Overstock.com and JVC products from here on out!!
Summary: This camera takes professional quality video. It is so easy to upload if you have a decent graphic card. For the price this is great.This camera has almost zero noise from the motor unlike some canon models. Thanks JVC.
Summary: I own this camera. I actually had to go through three of them before I got one that worked right. The first had a really loud motor that recorded onto the sound track. Then the replacement one jammed (while I was filming on vacation) and the third one is still going strong.
Summary: This is one purchase I do not regret making. It is a better camcorder then a lot of the other camcorders I looked at for more money. I like the fact that you can always put another tape in and not have to worry about running out of hard drive space.
