Summary: After spending 6 of its first 12 weeks of ownership in the Atlanta JVC Service Center, they could not fix the problem of noise and dropouts in the audio and video. Tried several different brands of new tapes, many of which it ate and ruined. After third trip to Atlanta, JVC just cut me a refund check but I had to call US Headquarters and speak to corporate level service management. Steer clear of lousy product and service.

Summary: I bought a JVC GR-DVM70 when they were hot, shiny, and new. Paid a ton for it too. Camera works good and is small enough to fit in loose pockets. I really enjoy the physical camera. Turns out however, that JVC makes the WORST software in the world. I don't know who their software engineers are, but they wrote (...) software and included it with the camera. Also, my camera is not USB and that is a huge part of the problem.
Summary: This camcorder pretty much ruined any hopes of capturing a very special event (Getting married in Hawaii) as it suffered one failure after another, including no sound capture. To add insult to injury, the product has been in a JVC authorized service center for over 2 weeks and 4 phone calls without so much as a single response... Bad product, lousy service...
