5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This Digital camcorder is very easy to use.It is very handy due to light weight.The still Image Quality is also good.The Movie quality is excellent.The surround dolby sound mind blowing.One can easily connect the device to windows xp PC/laptop as an external USB Device.The movies and images can be easily copied to PC.Overall its an excellent digital camera.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not connect to computer.
Wonderful camcorder, but does not connect to my XP computer making it useless. Contacted Sony support twice. Received automatic reply saying someone would be in touch the first time. A week later I contacted them again. This time there was no reply at all.

So, with no support supplied by Sony, I have to return the camcorder. Pity, it appears to be a very nice...

4.0 out of 5 stars Works with PC and Apple computers, 19 Oct 2007
This review is from: Sony DCR-SR190E Hard Disc Drive Camcorder With 2.7'' LCD Screen (Electronics)
This is an excellent camera for both still and moving images. I edit using an Apple Computer. Although it isn't compatible with iMovie 6, a simple upgrade to iMovie 08 solved all my problems. You plug the camera into the computer and stand back, the Apple recognises the camera, launched iMovie, asks to import the movies then creates movies already filed by date. Look no hands !

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!!, 4 Jun 2009

This review is from: Sony DCR-SR190E Hard Disc Drive Camcorder With 2.7'' LCD Screen (Electronics)
I originally bought the SR37 but was very disappointed with the features of the camcorder, especially it's low light capability of 6 lux. This one is MUCH better, with it's impressive range of features and a standard low light capability of 1.5 lux which produces excellent movies even inside under low light (I record drunken party nights in my dimly lit local!), and if it gets darker you can change to night shot or super night shot for some "Blair Witch" type effects in total darkness.

The camera is a bit bulkier than the SR37, but for the additional features it's well worth it. The zoom is not too powerful compared to the latest camcorders (only 10x optical and 80x digital) but I haven't found this a problem.

Some of my favourite features on the SR190 that aren't on the SR37 (or many of the current range) are: The automatic lens cover, the accessory shoe, the remote control (very useful when playing back movies on the TV direct from the camera), 4MP still camera (MUCH better than the <1MP of most recent camcorders), built in flash for the still camera. I haven't tested the surround sound yet, but from other reviews I've read apparently it's excellent.

It comes with a very useful docking station which I leave connected to my computer for transferring the movies, but there's no additional USB connector on the camera, so you can't connect it to the computer or a Sony DVD Recorder directly, only via the docking station.

I thoroughly recommend this camcorder, it's a shame Sony don't make it any more because in my opinion it's MUCH better than any of their current range (in this class), but if you can get hold of one, GET IT!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dont buy Sony in America, 1 Sep 2007
This review is from: Sony DCR-SR190E Hard Disc Drive Camcorder With 2.7'' LCD Screen (Electronics)
Very good camera which I bought in St Maarten in the Carribean. Could not register it in the UK as I did not have a European registation code and Sony UK were most unhelpful. Dont buy it abroad if you can't register it in Europe.
Different number for camera in the USA to europe same camera.
