Summary: The unit I received was described as like new. Unfortunately is was well worn with scratches, a hole in the hand hold, a very worn carrying case that I hoped was not the original. Additionally the unit had a hard time ejecting the tapes I used to assess its function.
Summary: I like using it with my older tapes...it came with a *wide angle lens and a #dead battery...*1 great,,, #1 not so good..The retailer adjusted the price by 30.00 bucks and sent a new battery..Which I'm grateful for...it works fine..
Summary: If one notices, most of the favorable reviews on this product were written over 10 years ago....when the product was first manufactured. I've no doubt it was a great product. But if you read the 3 recent reviews of the offered "used or refurbished" camcorders...only 1 is favorable.
