Summary: Overall, it was a good value. But, after using the battery once (the only time it was 100% charged), I was not able to successfully charge it to full capacity again. I discovered this fact when I brought my camcorder to a MLB playoff game. Subsequently, I've tried multiple times to charge it without success. At best, it only provides 40 minutes or so of battery power.

Summary: Projector came in handy especially while traveling. We could review the day's videos in the evening using just a piece of white paper for a screen. It does need a very dark room for more than a 2 foot wide image of course. It can fill a whole wall if you are in total darkness.
Summary: Picture quality is so grainy, I had to return it. It didn't matter how much light was in my room (I bought professional lighting equipment with the camcorder) it was still very grainy, i dont know why because the test videos didn't look bad. microphone is good. touchscreen is ok. It attaches to a standard tripod easily. I'm going to buy a dslr once I return this.
Summary: Whatever you do, don't buy the KDR-CX90 - that minor model number change will leave you disappointed in lost features. The 80 is the way to go, I thought the higher number mean better, and ended up returning it for this one. Great camera! A few differences in 80 NOT in 90: mic input, touch screen, auto-opening lens cover, and overall quality.
Summary: I bought this camera due to reviews and bang for the buck and I'm not disappointed. The picture holds up well when blown up to 50" flat screen proportions and the auto focus seems to work well. I was surprised at how light this camera is, you can hardly tell it's in the camera bag. And it's the smallest video camera I've ever owned. Having said that the LCD screen is quite big.
