Seriously, have you ever see a square power plug?

  • Summary: After all the reviews I read here, most of them reveling in the video quality of this camcorder (hey Consumer Reports loved it too), I decided against going to the Sony HDR-CX100, which can Record and burn in both HD and SD, and costs only about $100 more than this hunk of junk. LET ME CLARIFY EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED, BECAUSE IF YOU WANT A YOUTUBE CAMERA AND NEVER WANT TO BURN VIDEO TO DVD, THIS IS PROBABLY A 3-STAR CAMERA.
