Emma, Northampton

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Neat little camcorder with good size lcd screen. Easy to use, simple to record and playback. Also attaches easily to tv with cables supplied so you can watch straight from the camcorder. Good size memory too.
Bad points:
Worst thing about this camcorder is trying to burn videos onto dvd. I'm not particularly technical and found the whole thing very long winded and complicated using the software provided with the camcorder. When I had finally burnt a dvd it wouldn't play on my dvd player!! Finally cracked it by burning videos onto a cd using another programme which was already on my computer. Couldn't help wondering if a camcorder which records straight on to dvd would have been simpler!! Battery life is also fairly short, however it charges quickly (in about an hour) so not too much of a problem.
