REVIEW

Sony Handycam HDR-CX220 ( Black)

The only thing the Sony Handycam HDR-CX220 seems to have going for it is the low price, but "you get what you pay for" has never rung truer.

REVIEW

Sony Handycam HDR-CX200

They're cheap and capture video, but don't buy the Sony Handycam HDR-CX190, CX200 or CX210 thinking that you're getting a great bargain on a real HD camcorder. If you're going to buy one, get the cheapest; nothing on any of these is really worth the extra bucks.

The Samsung HMX-W200 might be a little less impressive than its specs, but it's still a very good rugged minicamcorder for the money.

REVIEW

Sony Handycam DCR SX85 ( Silver)

Sony's Handycam DCR-SX45, SX65, and SX85 standard-definition camcorders pack a megazoom lens at a reasonable price; one look at the standard-definition video, though, and you might regret not spending a bit more for an HD model.

The rugged GE DV1minicamcorder is OK for casual Web videos. If you need more than that, look elsewhere.

Sony Handycam HDR-CX130 (Black)
REVIEW

Sony Handycam HDR-CX130 ( Black)

Typical for their price class, the no-frills Sony Handycam HDR-CX130, CX160, and XR160 produce generally subpar HD video, but if you're not picky you'll probably be fine. The CX130 is the best buy of the three, as long as you go cheap on the memory card.
