Pros HD for cheap
Cons HD for cheap
SummaryAs others have said this model does not rely on a hard drive, noise source must be something else or "snphotog" has a different model.

Pros I purchased this camcorder so I could record my brothers birthday at Californias Great America. I got lots of video and when we got back we watched it on my 50" Samsung and the picture was great. Very bright colors and great sound quality.
Cons I did get some video at night in low light and it was okay, better than my previous sony by far but I wish there was night vision or a built in light for those occasions but other than that it was great.
Pros Great Image quality.
Cons Poor Focus at Night.
Terrible Internal sound coming from camera that internal mic picks up.
NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MACBOOK
Summary DO NOT BUY IF YOU OWN A MACBOOk. IMovie will only say error when trying to import video. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS
