Is the new Sony DCR-SR100 worth the money?

I might get a new camcorder and I found the SR100. It looks really good but am wondering if someone has any experience with it. I love the ~7 hours recording time. Any suggestions is appreciated.

A hard drive is the only way to go. I have had 3 minidv's and the are a pain in the butt compared to this one. drag and drop is the only way to go for file transfers for my movie editor. I find the quality of movie great although I am comparing it to a 4 year old sony camcorder that this one replaced

Fast transfer

In reply to: yes

With a minidv you have to play it back in real time in order to transfer it to the computer. With the harddrive, it transfers much fast. Editing capabilities are limited. I'm videotaping kids performances so it's good enough. Depends on your usage.
