Summary: I had been a happy owner of a DCR PC110 for many years and it failed. I needed another mini tape playing machine with pass-through to move dozens of tapes to hard drive back up. I began watching ebay to find another DCR PC110 and to learn what I should expect to pay. Any where from $150 to $300 seemed to be the range. Then I found a recent listing "buy now" for $87 with free shipping.
Summary: I love the fact that it's very easy to use, and it's very small. I was able to take it anywhere without a problem, being that I could either wear it around my neck, or just carry it in my left palm. It uses a tape just like the analog ones, but the quality of the video comes out far better with these tapes (8mm).
