Obviously many people likes the Panasonic camcorders. Got my new TM900 stolen from my car, therefore I bought the X900M. The films are in high quality. I had hoped that the size had been a little bit less. The "klick" when you change cameramode is there but not that loud as my TM900 was. However the fan noise seems to be at least as loud (or silent if you prefer) as the TM900. But it is not any problem for me but probably for an pro. I can recommend the camera for anyone that is likes to get really good quality video.
