Great Camera For Students


I bought this for a project for school, last semester. I was so suprised how simple it was to figure out how to work it. The quality is great and it's very easy to upload the videos. I'm very happy I purchased this camcorder. I'm giving them as a gifts...

Very easy to learn to use. Very quick upload. High quality piece of machinery

Not as tough as some other cameras, it's very easy to break. (Be Careful.)

Great camcorder!


This is a great camcorder! I am able to capture so many hours of great video because of this. The picture and sound are so clear when played back.

I really love this camcorder! I purchase my JVC Everio Hard Drive Camcorder from Best Buy several months ago. I love that this camera is easy to use. I also love the color and the quality of the video and picture capture. The only thing I do not like...

Pretty color, easy to use, small, great quality, affordable

weird video format

Great camcorder, super compact, easy to use


I purchased the JVC Everio MG630 a few weeks ago and am pretty satisfied with it thus far.  I shopped around quite a bit and chose this particular product because I like the idea of having a 60 GB hard drive with the option of using memory cards.

Compact, User friendly, Takes good quality video, Lots of memory

Very poor battery life, a huge hassle to use with Macs

Price and Value Viewed Here


The price range for budget camcorders has changed much recently. The MG630, released on March 1st of 2009 as a member of JVC's Everio G Series line, is in that group or reasonably priced electronics.

Price, weight, convenience, short learning curve, handling, quality of videos

Battery life limited if you plan to do duration videos.  Buy a backup for security

Love It! Small and easy to use.


This was bought for me as a gift from my dad, and is the first camcorder I have personal owned. I love the size, it's small enough to fit into your purse or a small carry bag. One of the other things that drew me to this model was it's beautiful blue...

Build-in hard drive, one touch options, easy back-up of video

Doesn't take good pictures, but I didn't buy it to take

A great camcorder for the money - I love my new Everio!!


I've always been a technology nut with anything from computers to iPods to digital cameras but I've never bought a camcorder until recently. I had a trip scheduled to Orlando, Florida for a week and I knew there were things I was going to do there that...

Excellent video quality and sound, easy to use software, very user-friendly camcorder

Battery life for the supplied battery is low, only lasts about 90 minutes
