Summary: I find it amazing that here is a new model Sanyo Xacti. I own a Xacti HD-2000. I have encountered the black screen of death along with losing precious videos of important events in my life. I tried to find someone to complain to. I also thought perhaps a ROM upgrade might be available.
Summary: i bought this camera years ago. black screen of death after a year or so. spent a day to fix it (you'll find instructions on the web). i probably didnt clean the lubricant from the iris well enough - black screen again after 3 months.
Summary: order was not sent because of credit card problems said a voice I could not understand. this camera and last one purchased sent with no cd programs for operating camera. I will never buy anything from amazon again and want no further emails from amazon.
BUYER BEWARE!!! VERY DISSAPPOINTED WITH THIS PRODUCT AND WITH SANYO LACK OF CUSTOMER SUPPORT!!!

Summary: Well we purchased this camcorder over a year ago. I rarely use this only for Christmas, birthdays and of course the kids end of school programs. If I use it 5 times this year that was a lot. It worked fine although it was very confusing to operate.
Summary: I bought this camera one year ago just prior to one of my mountain climbing expeditions. I liked it for the lightweight and the HD performance. I bouth it from a shop in San Francisco and paid over $900. I think this was the worst product I have ever purchased.
Summary: when it worked, it worked great, but after about 2 weeks, the screen went black and stayed that way. luckily, i bought it used for cheap. unluckily, that voided the warranty. last sanyo product i will ever buy...ever. cant even find a place in my town that sells or can fix them.
Summary: I was amazed to read the reviews that mirrored my personal experience. This will be my last Sanyo anything... Sanyo should have provided firmware to fix their lighting shortcomings and paid for the massive amount of camera failures.
Summary: I saw a review for this camera in a magazine when they first came out and it sounded like a great thing. I ordered one from the PX. It took forever to come in and when it did there was no picture, only a black screen.
Summary: Although my camcorder delivery (extra fee) was rapid and well timed for a planned recording weekend, my excitement quickly turned to disappointment after opening the package. I was unable to either charge the battery or use the camcorder because the seller delivered a version suitable only for a...
Summary: In my opinion this is not a marketable product. The cameras features are irrelevant if it does not work. There is clearly a design fault and the product should be withdrawn from sale until there is a fix. When it did work it was a convenient pocketable unit.
