Worst Camcorder

Joe Carey, Amazon
17 October 2007
  • Summary: Video quality is awesome. Thats about it. Every disc I have tried in it, I says error half way through and restarts. I loose everything. This has happened every time I have used it. Battery life, what battery life. I charged it for 12 hours, and I got 30 minutes of use.

Very Poor Product!

Kooz, Amazon
17 October 2007
  • Summary: I've owned the Samsung SCDC173U mini-DVD camcorder for a week and I will be taking it back to the store today. As another reviewer has stated - the camcorder has frequent "read" problems, frequent errors, loss of data, and 5 of the 6 mini-DVDs I've used are now "coasters".

Horrible product

mervenmar, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this 6/15/07 with little time to shop, a day prior to departing for a Caribbean vacation. Just like previous reviewer, it has 'read' problems with the DVD's, every one I tried. Frequent errors, loss of data; 1 DVD rendered useless; problems "finalizing" the disc for viewing, etc.

For God's Sake Stay Away From This

J. D. Hyde, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: My wife bought this for me last year for Christmas - not sure why I didn't really want another video cam. But anyway, after having the camera for about 12 months now, I've shot about 12 minutes of video. Why only 12 minutes?

WILL NOT FINALIZE MY DISCS

jetman, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this product at the advice of a friend who also didnt own the product very long. To both of our surprise, we are having the same problems. The camcorder will record movies but will not finalize the disc.

Sad to loose priceless memories

Lola, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: I don't usually write reviews but, I feel the need to let everyone know what a poor camcorder this is. I unfortuantely didn't do any research prior to buying on black friday 1 week before my new baby was to be born.

Software issues

R. Guerin, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: While I bought this as a christmas present for my wife, She has yet to be able to use it. She tried to record a small video and it would not play back. Then the camera started telling her weird things like, the disk is not formated and do you want the camera to format it.

Camera Not Good

Kelly, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: I've had nothing but problems from this camera. It sucks the battery down lightening fast, it won't shut off sometimes and this weekend, it would skip on the recordings so it didn't record all of the event I was trying to capture. Returning this immediately!

Poor customer service

Frustrated Customer, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera but was unable to write the mini dvd to a regular size dvd on my dvd recorder. When I called customer service, I was redirected to a camcorder support person (whom I do not believe exists) but was then told by a recording that my call did not go through and to please call again.
