JVC Customer Service Terrible

Nekochan, Amazon

  • Summary: I received this camcorder for Christmas. While the picture was very good, and the features plenty for my family videos there was an annoying whine in all recordings. I found it was recording the whine into the tape, not just a mechanical whine while playing inside the camcorder. I contacted JVC and was told that unless I had a receipt and proved I received the camera within the past 90 days I would pay for its repair.

A Very Good Choice

  • Summary: I found the video results from this camera outstanding; clear and crisp with perfect color. I also found this camera easier to load tape and battery than my old Hitachi Hi-8. However, I find using the controls of this camera somewhat difficult and cumbersome. If you can't afford a Sony Digital Hi-8 camera, I suggest this JVC compact camcorder. With Super VHS-C tape in the camera and Super VHS tape in the JVC VHS recorder, for the price, you can't go wrong.

The JVC Camcorder GR-SXM240 Super VHS VHS Compact

Nekochan, Amazon
8 May 2002
  • Summary: The JVC Camcorder Model GR-SXM240 is one of the best I've used in years. For the price you pay,you can't beat It. Sharp pictures even in low light conditions. I recommend this Camcorder for every one to use. There is one problem while charging the battery the main circuit board smoked. This board cost approx. $205.00. I recommend watching the camcoder when charging.
