Summary: Very Very happy with products. These are the type of deals you strive to find.AAAAAAAAA++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Summary: The camera is fabulous, just what I needed. The only thing I don't care for but am living with it because it is so great in a number of ways is the on/off and record buttons are so close to one another.
Summary: I probably bought this 2003/2004 or so. The TRV25 had just come out and I got 2 bad units in a row with the same defect, returned them both and sought out the TRV17, based on it's reputation. I had to buy it locally, and at a price higher than it should have been, considering it was an "old" model, but it hasn't let me down. Still running (though I've never used it much.) A dead pixel or 2 is the only problem. Whatever, not like I'm shooting feature films or anything.
Summary: bonjour, je suis embêté car je suis à la recherche de ce produit et impossible de le trouver en France. Je suis prêt à participer à un complément monétaire pour une livraison à mon domicile, merci de me tenir informer au près du vendeur.
Camera is not in good working condition. Play back mode is defective.
9 November 2011
Summary: Used the camera on my vacation. The camera records the pictures satisfactory, however in the play back mode the screen has 5-6 black lines through out the picture and the sound is distorted, Very disappointing. According to the Ebay discripition the camera was to be in excellent working condition. The TRV 17 video camera will have to be sent in for repairs.. Any suggestions? Gerald E.
Summary: I will rate the whole eBay experience as very poor. I never received my camcorder. One that I was buying to take on my honeymoon. Needless to say I now have some wonderful still photos of my honeymoon, but no videos. When I told ebay that I had not received my product. They "looked into it" and said that they couldn't do anything about it. so F eBay.
Summary: An excellent and robust camera with a wide range of capabilities; I purchased one new in 2002 and it is still giving excellent service. The model that superceded it is not (apparently) as good. I took the opportunity to buy a second (used) DCR-TRV17 recently on Ebay while they are still available. I have also been advised that in most cases these cameras can be repaired and serviced while many newer camcorders cannot.
