Jim, Peterborough

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
none
Bad points:
avery single thing that can be awkward or hard to use, is bad. you can only finalise disks when connected to the mains, the controls are very fiddly, the format that it records on ram-disks cannot be recognised by a computer or dvd player, the only way to edit ram-disks is with the supplied rubbish software from hitachi. The other recording formats are useless because there is no way to edit them, because if you format a dvd+rw in one way, you can't then reformat them in the editable format EVER! It doesn't join the recordings up, so if you start and stop recording 60 times during the life of the disc inserted, then you get 60 thumbnails! there should be a pause button so you can continue to record where you left off.. When you do use the supplied software to edit your recodings on the computer, it resets itself when you get more than about 50 bits to join and bang goes 2 hours work, and the quality ends up as bad as a not very good avi, nowhere near dvd quality. It is an all round useless bit of kit, and even if they paid me, I would never ever buy another hitachi anything!!!

raj, birmingham

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
This camera is lightweight and takes dvd discs which is why I bought it plus at the time it was on offer.
Bad points:
The picture quality is very grainy, it has no inbuilt light so doesn't work in dim lighting. I am very disappointed as I have only used it twice in 6 weeks because I am not happy with the results.
