Summary: This was a used item and it came looking like new. Takes very good quality vids. Controls are not that intutive but if you read the manual you will have no issues. I needed to purchase a larger memory card and additional batteries. Compact and has good noise reduction technology.
Summary: I love this video camera. It's very easy to use and the videos are very good/high dentition. While shooting video's it also takes photos periodically that you can download to your computer and print off if you would like to. Overall my wife and I are very happy with this camera.
Summary: I have had mine for a little over a year. I do not like recording to the internal memory, I would rather use a memory card. The interface seems like a hassle to me. The camera does poorly in low light and when i say poorly i mean very poorly.
Well worth $150 or less. Great pocket camera for 1080p videos.

Summary: I prefer the XR160 more & better, but the CX160 is a nice second (allowing SD Card use & storage, and transfers to your computer... vs the addition of the hard drive the XR160 has). Works well in low light, good IS ability, and reasonable stereo recording.
