This Samsung product is a fantastic little camcorder that I have had for nearly a year now. I wanted a cheap, lightweight camcorder to use on holiday and at university and this one turned out to be ideal. The fault that is mentioned in the other review is a silly one, basically the camcorder can finalise -r and -rw dvds. These can then be played back on any PC or Universal DVD player ONLY. If you try to play back a recorded dvd on a normal DVD player (ie: a region 2 player) then it obviously won't work. However, every disc that I have recorded can play on PCs and my Pioneer Universal player. However, the best bet is to use Sony DVD+rw discs as these don't need to be finalised any way and can be reused. It is also a good idea to rip all the video footage from your discs and save them on a PC using some DVD ripping software.

Basically, most people should be able to understand what I've just written. If you do not have the right software or the right kind of DVD player then the discs that this camera records will be pretty much useless, but then don't buy a DVD camera. Besides, a good quality Universal DVD player only costs about 80 pounds now anyway.

Now, the best features of this camera are the impressive zoom, the practicality of discs themselves, the vast menu and option settings which are very user friendly and the compactness. The only thing that lets it down slightly is that it doesn't quite record as high quality footage as a HDD, Hi-Def, Blu Ray, Flash camcorder which would cost about £700. So, if you just want a nice easy camera and are realistic about what you can get for less than £200 then really, you should look no further.

Regardless of what the other review has said about this camcorder, he is wrong. This is an excellent camcorder that is easy to use and the finalise feature works fine, he was probably using the wrong disks. I moved from Mini DV to DVD and this was an excellent choice for me. This Camcorder made me realise that i should have moved to DVD sooner, but it really is cheap to buy and works very well With a Apple MAC and a Windows PC. I would recommend this camcorder immensley. Samsung do not make crap products and this is a fine example of the technology they use.

Having bought one of these for mine and my wife's wedding a couple of years ago,we tried it out using some cheap nasty blank dvd,s.
and we thought what a waste of time then reading on a couple of forums what a right plonka i was.
NEVER EVER USE CHEAP DISCS.
the thing with the Samsung VP-DX100 it is a great piece of kit in the right hands so we then tried a good quality brand of disc the outcome was perfect.
Our wedding video was top notch and a memory to cherish.
i would recommend this camcorder very easy to use very light and the batteries last a long time before having to charge up.
I know its not HD and only 34x zoom but that's ample for everyday videoing
