JVC Everio GZ-MG335 (white)


With long recording times and convenient operation, hard-disk-based camcorders are quite tempting, especially when coupled with the relatively low prices for standard-definition models. That's true of the lowest-end camcorders in JVC's veteran Everio G...

Attractive price; compact design; holds hours of video

No eye-level viewfinder, mic input, or headphone jack; persistent video compression artifacts

The near-identical models of the JVC Everio GZ-MG300 series--the MG330, MG335, MG360 and MG365--are budget-priced, hard-drive-based camcorders that are nice enough, but produce typical low-budget video.

JVC Everio GZ-EX300


The Everio GZ-EX355 has a great combination of video recording quality and handy extras. Not many camcorders can top this full HD video camera in video quality, and the integrated Wi-Fi and memory save you the hassle included with other camcorders. You...

HD camcorder has one of the best battery lives ranked

The customer support options do not include live chat

The JVC GZ-EX355 features a long battery life, integrated memory and a built-in Wi-Fi. Not many things missing besides a live chat option from JVC's customer service department.

First things first. The JVC Everio GZ-MG465 is not a High-Definition camcorder. Now we've got that out of the way we can concentrate on what makes this camcorder a viable standard-def option.

Images are excellent for standard-definition footage

Pricey for a non-High-Definition 'corder

If, for some reason, you don't want to go the whole HD route, then the JVC GZ-MG465 is one of the best SD camcorders around.

Expert review by:



Standard definition hard drive camcorder with 60GB of storage and SD slot, fronted by a 32x optical zoom and with a 2.7-inch widescreen monitor to frame with. There's a megapixel sensor inside. It measures 54x68 x113mm and weights 360g. The good First...

If you’ve got a prejudice against HD camcorders this SD model is about as good as you’ll find. Video and sound quality are perfectly acceptable. In fact, it’s the Kylie Minogue of camcorders: small, sexy and slightly out of date. JVC GZ-MG465 is tagged...

Audio is horrible


Brought this home and was pleased with the setup, operation, and functionality. Went to review the video, and there was a clicking noise and the voices sounded muted. Horrible audio. This is a deal breaker. Too bad because everything else about this...

Cool Camera With Major Flaw


I purchased this camcorder after learning that its features combined with the "indestructibility" factor made it an ideal choice for a family with young kids that get their hands on everything. Got it out of the box and started using it and everything...

Great for my uses


As a pediatric therapist, I can't write and work, and reviewing with parents is quite helpful. I need basic but easy and reliable. I use my JVC MG465 to tape as I work, then review and write. It's smaller and less distracting that my old one and the...
