    You can get the Sony TRV-19 for $569 at circuitcity.com and you then get $100 credit (20% or $100max) for future purchases back (in a couple months) if you use the MSN shopping wallet. Go to msn.com and click on the shopping area and you should see the deal. The credit is good for any site that uses the MSN wallet. I just see that circuitcity has Sony on sale now. See camcorderinfo.com for reviews. trv22 review

    Also if you can go about $100 more, go for the trv22, it has color viewfinder and analog passthru. You can hook up your old analog camcorder and convert it to dv format and transfer to your pc over firewire or usb 2.0 connection.
