Summary: My girlfriend handed me this Camcorder, she had never used it. I played with it for several days, verdict: both the still shots and the movies are pretty poor quality. I would not use this if I wanted to continue shooting video, just too poor quality, probably because it is lacking HD (high definition). All new JVC and other brand camcorders are HD these days, for a good reason. Maybe Salvation Army will take it.
Summary: It really shouldn't be difficult. Engineer a camera that saves video files in a format that can be readily copied and pasted so that they can be read by any computer. Instead, JVC locks you in to their proprietary video format that is really only good at doing one thing - showing the video on the camera's viewscreen. So much about this camera seems right. Awesome zoom. Dual SD card slots, reasonable price, etc. etc.
Summary: I ordered the jvc everio ms 120 based on the suggestion of a local store clerk who didn't have the camera in stock. Problem: it didn't work. It arrived broken, we called the service number and was told to mail it in for evaluation. Not likely, when I buy a new product, I expect it to work when I receive it, not after it has been returned and evaluated.
