Summary: The Sony HDR-UX20 is a great camcorder but it definitely has to be what you’re looking for. First of all you have to want a DVD camcorder, which has its niche, but may not be the best way to record and store media.
Summary: With a choice of three recording formats (DVD, Memory Stick and inbuilt memory), Sony's HDR-UX20 is the king of the hybrids. It delivers reasonable high-def visuals for the asking price, but some of the issues that plague DVD camcorders remain unchecked.
Pros: Three recording formats, solid video performance, lots of modes and features
Cons: Requires a Blu-ray player for AVCHD DVDs, questionable build quality, the touch screen is too small
