Sony HD Flash Memory Digital Camcorder (HDRCX240/B) with 27x Optical Zoom - Black is rated 3.0667 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst camera I have ever owned. You have to have 2 special cords just to charge the battery. Loading video from your camera to computer is not easy either. I would never recommend this camera to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY!!!! Wish i could give it zero stars. Seems like a great deal right? Sony? $129? NO! Opening the package, it seemed like a great camera. Lightweight yet built strong. However once recorded a video, while watching it on the camera itself seemed okay, but once it uploaded to to computer, (i tried this on multiple computers) the video had waves going through it every time something in the video moved. very low quality. definitely returning it. DO NOT BUY.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought it for my wife, but she has macular degeneration and she cannot see the prompts,so it is sitting around not being used. I'm sure it is a great product, but just not useable for what I bought it for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it -- very handy. The Sony CX-240 is an excellent camcorder. While it does not have some of the 'features' of high-end Canon units, the important basics are there: HD quality, and simplicity of use. And it is a feather-weight!  While all the more expensive camcorders have opted for "touch screens" I love the design of the CX-240 in that it uses a physical "joy stick" to navigate the settings. I had a Canon VIXIA M30 before with touch screen, and it drove me nuts, especially outdoors where I couldn't see the screen well...forget touch screens. The other camcorders are trying to act like an iPhone! Transferring the clips is a breeze as well. And they come right into my editing program (Sony Movie Studio 13) easily. And the clever data/charging built-in USB cable connects to my computer to transfer, and/or to the included ac battery charger. Tip, for still pictures be sure to NOT be in movie mode for best quality. So 5 stars for this camcorder. Did I say the price is right?
