Looking for something along the lines of the JVC GR-DX27EK, or the model up from that which supports memory cards.
Doesn't matter if the screen is cracked, as long as I can record from a mini dv tape to the computer.
I can see and view everything on mine just fine, just when playing back there are blurry lines across the screen and it's like it's playing 2x the speed. I put this down to it being dropped a fair few times!
Needs to be cheap as poss please, just backing up some video's of my daughter being born!
