Mine Died a Little After a Year

17 January 2007
  • Summary: Don't buy camcorder that requires use of touch screen as only way of viewing tape in camcorder. There should be another system in case touch screen fails as mine did.
  • Pros: Good sound, nice picture, easy to use
  • Cons: Touch screen stopped working. It's the only way to rewind, fast forward or play tape.

Buy Sony products at your own risk

Kenny O., Amazon
14 January 2006
  • Summary: As an owner of the Sony DCR-HC30 model DV Handicam, I want to warn everyone about my horrible experience with this product line. Design and feature-wise, these Handicams are great. The problem is, they are built like junk. From the day I opened my box, I got a message that told me that the heads were dirty and needed to be cleaned. In retrospect, I should have returned it for a replacement then and there.

Sony Camcorders fail in 2 years

Scott P, Amazon
27 August 2005
  • Summary: There is currently a known issue with many of the Sony Camcorders. This is being called the "black screen of death". What happens is that the camera works great for 1-2 years then the CCD goes out like a light. The camera will not take video again. Sony is evasive if not downright deceitful about this issue when you call tech support. The fact is Sony does not stand behind their product.
