    Let's put this the other way. What do you find attractive about it? I see no good reason to buy a standard definition. mpeg2, hard drive camera in 2014.

    I agree with smrpix. That camera is 8 years old. At least that's the copyright date of Sony's manual for that camera.

    Hi smrpix, thanks for your comment
    “What do you find attractive about it?” the usual, the price!

    Hi Tree Tops ,yes it’s an old cam ,User manual dated 2006. On Amazon it first appeared on the scene 3rd September 2006

    Found three owners reviews there, all positive, all from 2006. Does not appear to be any issues with this Mpeg 2 HDD cam. Anyone who wants info on this cam

    I have decided to give this cam a miss not on Mpeg quality , ( you get what you pay for)! but on seller quality (you have to be careful who you buy from)! Anyway guys thank both, for your comments and the interest. However, there are a few interesting features connected with this 2006 cam, such as the HDD crash protection system, the Dolby 5.1 creator for surround sound system, and the add on, facility for a wireless mic that could come in handy for presentations , many thanks guys.
