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 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.
Summary: I have used this camera in several virutal home tours that I recorded with this camera. Every home sold too. Good and sharp. 1920 x 1080p at 50fps gives good quality video. The stills are not very good, but the video is really sharp.
Summary: This camera does everything the average joe would want from a personal cam-corder. I will say that with the new iphones video capability, we rarely use this camera. It's just so much easier to pull out the phone and take videos.
Summary: I bought this camcorder about ayear ago and it does everything I expected and more. I was actually surprised at the quality of the photos and use it as much to take pictures as I do to record footage.Great buy for the price.
Summary: Good camera for the price. I shoot indoors all the time and always add extra lighting. The quality is very good. I am use to using a camera with a large built in hardrive so I bought extra SD cards before I plan shooting all day.
Summary: This camcorder is so great. The picture and sound quality is good. Also it's good on the battery life. It is easy to carry . The most important is I paid great money for bidding this camcorder from ebay.
Summary: Yeah it could use a better stability platform. But the HD video is awesome. Don't use the Photo because the quality just won't be there. Cameras are for taking pictures, Video cameras are for video. Instead capture a photo from the Video you just took.
