The biggest complaint people seem to have is with the video quality - and while I agree it's not as good as a top quality miniDV or some of the more expensive HD models JVC also produce, it's not nearly as bad as they're making out (or they've somehow managed to buy a whole bunch of bad cameras).
I've recorded movies both indoors and out - neither have been particularly poor, and I would place it's top quality setting somewhere around that of a VHS tape. I got none of the artifacts or corruption people have complained about, the quality is a bit fuzzy, but on the whole perfectly acceptable for creating family movies or sending scaled down mpgs via email.
The format it records in is NOT proprietory as some people claim. It records in mpeg 2 format, but unfortunately due to the proprietory software that comes with the camera all the clips have a .mod instead of a .mpg file extension.
No drivers or software are needed - just attach to your PC, then access the HD as if it were a USB thumbdrive. After you've copied the data, you can rename the files to .mpg if you wish, this will make them instantly available to any movie playback program, including Media Player.
Editing in Windows Movie Maker however is not possible, as this softare isn't able to handle mpgs it doesn't create with it's own proprietory codec - but all versions of Premier or other decent video editing programs work fine.
If you want top quality, don't buy an HD video camera - stick with miniDV or spend big bucks on High Definition. If you don't mind a little bit of fuzziness around the edges, then any of these cheaper HD cameras work great.
I've head that the more expensive versions of this camera have higher resolution recording as well as better handling of colour/light/etc. If this is true then you might want to ask a sales rep to do a recording and transfer it to a large screen PC to see if that works better for you. Any salesman worth his salt will do this test for you, after all $500+ is a lot of money, and if they truly want the sale they'll show you how good or bad the camera really is.
I sent it in to their service department just before the year was up. (Even though it broke right after I bought it, I was too busy with a newborn to get on it quickly). What I found out the hard way was that they warrantee their product ONLY FOR PARTS for the first year, and labor FOR ONLY 90 DAYS after purchase! They were willing to supply the $140 (!) part, but wanted to charge me $150 labor to fix it. So, in essence, their warranty really is only of value to you for the first 90 days. That's not a big vote of confidence on their own product!
I was very polite to them on the phone (I wouldn't want their job!), but nonetheless they were short and snooty (maybe something about living in los angeles?) Bottom line is that for $600 the camera shouldn't break in the first month and their customer service (once you actually get a live person) has much to be desired. I will be avoiding JVC for all future purchases. I have never taken the time to leave an on-line review for anything, but I feel this strongly about this.
(BTW, HD camcorder is handy, easy transfer to PC, not great video quality, battery good, their editing software bad).
