Summary: This is a no-frills, basic camcorder that records full HD video; if that sounds like something you are looking for, then the Vivitar DVR990 is right up your alley. We are impressed to see the 1080p recording capabilities from a budget camcorder, but the series lacks any additional features, and the customer support is questionable. If you're not looking to make blockbuster masterpieces out of your home movies, this camcorder will fit your needs for on a tighter budget.
Pros: This camcorder records full HD video and is easy on the wallet.
Cons: Aside from the full HD recording, this camcorder doesn't offer much else.
