Well, it's complicated!!!!

Great starter camcorder

 

Great Camcorder for first time user. Unfortunately the screen kept locking up and after a few months we returned it for refund.

Lightweight, Easy to Use, Good Value

Short Battery Life

Amazing but breaks too easily...:(

 

I have owned two, about to buy another one. Both broke to quickly after buying them...but the thing is, they're SO great, I'm willing to buy it again! Maybe I was a little clumsy with it..

Easy To Use ; Good Image Quality ; Good Image Stabilization ; Good in Low Light ; Great Zoom ; Large Clear LCD ; Short Lag Time ; Small / Compact

Both broke within a month

Consumer review by: wmcot (epinions.com)

Poorly built, cheap, buy a real camera/camcorder

 

The Mustek DV520T tries to be a digital camera and a camcorder all in one and it doesn't do either thing very well. It is poorly constructed with an aluminum case that just presses on (may pop off if dropped or handled roughly.) It take a strange ...

Small size, rechargeable

Neither camera or camcorder feature is very good
