I just bought the same one at Best Buy yesterday. It was a floor model. They unsecured it from the island of camcorders where they were on display. I paid $269.99. Mind didn't come with the dock, either. You got a better deal. Do you know if you can take a still image of something while your in the middle of camcording? I thought I read that you could, but the manual didn't say. tx, d.
I picked up a jvc gz-mg155u hard drive camcorder last night at circuit city for $250. It was an open box buy. It was originally $280 but they couldn't find the everio dock so they knocked off $30.
I read some good reviews and some bad, mostly good, and I see that that camera is still around $350 new elsewhere.
I have since found out from jvc that a replacement dock is $54.26, so I'm going back to c city to see if they'll give me an extra $25 since they only took off $30 since they couldn't find the dock.
I am new to this forum, so sorry if this is not an appropriate question.
