Upon first purchase of this camcorder I was delighted with the quality it displayed although a bit miffed at some of the specifications which weren't really up to scratch. The brightness in it seemed to be way off and made everything look a bit pixelated which I was stressed about considering the camcorder was said to be accurate in this sphere.
I liked the fact it came with a little remote of which was easily used and the camcorder responded quite quickly and well to it.
A major issue that would drive me to completely recommend everyone else not to buy it though is the dreaded condensation issue that 9/10 people seem to have had with this camera. Sometimes it takes a few days, sometimes a few hours after purchase but suddenly the screen eventually gets foggy and condensated inside and never seems to dry out. It isn't known why this happens but after contacting JVC it was clear that it was a regular issue and one they blamed on design faults and didn't otherwise seem to care very much about. This was distressing as I wasn't offered a refund or a replacement as it was considered the norm and they seemed to sneer at me when I requested one.
So no, for that reason I wouldn't recommend this camcorder. It was great for the first three days it successfully worked but after that it was the worst thing I've ever bought and I wouldn't personally touch it or the brand with a barge pole again.
