This camera takes great video. I can take the SD card out and play them in the computer. In low lights the quality is not that good, but without a flash it does a decent job. The issue I had is connecting to the TV and playing the videos. When I connect to the smart TV via micro to standard HDMI cable, I can see the list, but playing the videos is a problem. Sometimes it will play fine, sometimes it will freeze during playback and sometimes won't even play. And each time I unplug the USB cable, I have to reset the camcorder again. Similar issues reported by friends who own the same model. Tried contacting Samsung, did not get much help. Without this issue, could get a 5-star.
