(NT) (NT) Sony seems to garner a lot more complaints than Canon.

I don't think that's true.
Sony may get more complaints on this website, but if you go to you hear a ton of complaints about Canon's famous "Tape eject" problem.
As far as the original question goes, what Canon models are you talking about comparing??

i really haven't looked at the canon camcorders, the only ones that i was debating between were the DCR-HC21 and the DCR-HC32 and since its the first one, we don't want anything complicated, any suggestions on these two and any canons, thanks

I'm not sure. It looks like the only difference between the two Sony models is that the 32 takes still pictures.
Where are you buying?? What is your price range??
I found almost 2 full pages of camcorders at B & H for under $400.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
