Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood


    "A wide-angle lens, built-in USB cable, and consistently good automated behavior highlight the otherwise no-frills Sony Handycam HDR-CX130, CX160, and XR160 camcorders."


    The sub-HD resolution sensor on these camcorders produces merely satisfactory video.


    "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."

    Fantastic quality, low price, and it has got lot more than you think.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I love it. I have really wanted to buy a great camera, and I have read hundreds of comments about digital cameras. And finally I have found Sony HDR CX-130, and I am really impressed. It knows a lot; like automatic topic identify, or smile identify, built in usb cable, touch screen, design, and it's price is good. So I am not disappointed, and I just can affer to anybody, who want to buy a really good camera, and I also offer to see videos about this camera on the internet, it can help a lot.
