    I have the 40 GB version and its nice. Make sure it transfers to your computer in a friendly MPEG format. I use a friends Sony SR-1 HD camera often though. The Sony HD cameras that use AVCHD file format are more trouble than worth right now. They've been out for over 6 months with almost no editing software that keeps the resolution in HD. The latest Nero upgrade a few weeks ago fixed that though and I've been glued to my computer editing months of clips since then.
