Well worth $150 or less. Great pocket camera for 1080p videos.
I prefer the XR160 more & better, but the CX160 is a nice second (allowing SD Card use & storage, and transfers to your computer... vs the addition of the hard drive the XR160 has).
Works well in low light, good IS ability, and reasonable stereo recording.
Wouldn't waste money on this as a still camera. IT IS A VIDEO CAM!

Never miss a memory again.
I did lots of research before purchasing a digital video camera. I will say that it it paid off very well. This is the perfect family video camera. It's small enough that it fits in my wife's purse and goes with us all the time now. I gave all 5 stars because this camera exceeds what I needed. The price is hard to beat in the $200 range. The being able to add lots of memory and a 4 hour battery was a big selling point for me. Plus the battery can be changed while on a tripod.

Great camcorder~Great value for the money!
This camcorder is so great.
The picture and sound quality is good.
Also it's good on the battery life.
It is easy to carry .
The most important is I paid great money for bidding this camcorder from ebay.

Sony Handycam is strong, small, stable, crisp, intuitive & inexpensive
Got my "LIKE NEW" Handycam and it had every piece that it was delivered from the fgactory with.
Battery life is over 2 hours (got 3 more) and the functions are very intuitive. Video quality is better than I though it could be...especially at long distances.
Video taped my son's JROTC promotion ceremony from 30+ seats back and it is very clear and vibration free without a tripod!
The size if fine for my large size hands single handed due to the adjustable strap.
I am not a big videotographer but enjoy it very much.

It has a threaded front element
Which is wonderful if you want to attach things to the lens, like filters, telecompressor lenses, macro lenses, ultra-wide-angle lenses, microscopes or telescopes.
