Summary: - Excellent design, 5.1 sound effect is too good - I actually returned back this piece and opted for traditional Mini DV camcorder Sony DCR HC 96. Reason for my frustration in SR7 was its compatibility issues.
Summary: Buyer Beware of this very expensive Camcorder. Mine failed in 130 days of very light use and it only has a 90 day warranty (1 year for parts) . Sony was very happy to charge me $149.00 as an estimate in advance to see if they can bring it back to life.

Summary: This camera is beautiful and I would give it 5 stars but it is lacking one major connection: a USB connection directly on the camera. Yes, there is one on the Handycam Station but who really wants to carry the station around with them to gain connectivity to the camera.
