The whole process was a disaster

Summary: This was the first time I purchased a used item on Amazon. My disclaimer is that I tried to cancel within a few minutes of placing the order and I kept getting error messages along the lines of "there is a problem with the website, please try again later." I have never had a problem with any Amazon website before, so I thought this was strange.
Summary: I could not view old footage with this camera. When I put in to view old footage from my miniDV tapes the picture would flicker constantly. The camera is not compatible with my iMac and the became a even bigger problem than the old footage flickering. I was pleased that I was able to return the camera and get full refund including shipping. I've never had such a pleasant return experience so that made up for the disappointment.
Summary: When I received this unit it was improperly packaged in a cardboard box with no-zero-packaging material. The camcorder and the power module were bouncing around off of each other. Upon inspection and attempt to load a cassette cartridge I found that the switch to open the tape cassette holder was missing from the unit. Therefore the unit does not work.
Summary: A longtime Samsung supporter, I had high hopes and was hopeful that for $300 (at the time) this would be my light use, family event camcorder for the next 5-7 years. NO CHANCE. this camera stopped working suddenly and without warning after only 3 months and perhaps 3 total hours of use (how convenient that Samsung's warranty expires at exactly 3/months!
Summary: My mistake in thinking a MiniDV Camcorder used MiniDV TAPE to record on. After discovering my mistake, I packed it up to ship back without trying it. Now I'll wait for Amazon to credit my card. I did ship it at my expense as I thought Amazon had done their part in a fast excellent manner so I did'nt think they should pay to return my goof !
