JVC Everi o GZ-HD3
Price: $685 and up

Screen: 2.8-inch-wide LCD
              (no eyepiece)

Ease of use: User-friendly controls and a screen with a sharp display are big pluses. On the downside, it's the heaviest of our tested units.

Video quality: "Pretty crisp," Leak declared. He thought flesh tones came out better than on most other units.

The big picture: A strong runner-up and a good alternative if you want the max recording time of a hard-disk drive and are computer-savvy. (You can also opt to record onto a flash card, though.)

Grade: B
