"Great Hardware for the money-software limitation huge"3.0 starson by eparrot1
Pros: small, easy to use, solid video quality for just over $300
Cons: Serious problem with PMB. Software does not allow export in any format that retains full resolution. But can't read/manipulate files in anything else (WMP, WMM, etc) and retain the sound. Probably codec problem, but NO Sony support, so unsure.
Summary: Would only buy it again if Sony makes it easier to get the files into standard format like an HD AVI, - WITHOUT losing quality. PMB software, the videos look great. With any of the export formats, it degrades. But can't use other software - Can't retain the sound if I open the native files in WMM or WMP. Can't get picture in Any video converter or AVS video converter. Sony's help essentially blames the other packages. Sorry, Sony, even if you're right that it's their fault, when I try four different widely used software packages and it doesn't work, it's on you to at least provide decent direction on your web site, which you don't.
