Summary: I did not even pull this out of the box, because if you look very closely at the back of the cover it tells you that Sony Mini-DV cameras can only download standard definition video. I already have a sony VRDMC5 DVDirect burner which does the same thing.
Summary: I've read some of the negative reviews here but Sony's VBD-MA1 is perfection (and I'd be the first to pick on Sony). It's right out-of-the-box and operating within minutes and burning fabulous Blu-Ray 1080i HD. Carefully read the SPECS before you buy it.
Summary: Finally Sony has developed and released a method to be able to record the Hi-8 tapes from the Sony cameras on a format which is more readily available. I have done some 8 tapes to date, and find the DVD disc very readable on a DVD player, and it works well through a digital projector as well.
Summary: I bought a Sony HandyCam HDR CX-130 Camcorder, the lowest priced Sony HD Camcorder. It's $150 less than the 160G unit. Well with a 16G Class 4 SD card I can record 2 hours of HD video. I used the $150 I saved to buy this unit. This unit is amazing. It can put my 2 hour HD video on a Blu Ray or DVD.
Summary: The device cannot display on the TV and has no remote control, can not be registered from standard video on Blu-ray high-definition, But wonderful in the recorded on DVDs also you can use it as an external burner of the computer by Blu-ray.
