Working great

Bought this to replace my old (read obsolete) camcorder. Working great so far. Love the touch screen, although the "X" in the corner is sometimes hard to press... and the built in charger is great. Not a fan of the software download from Sony, but there are ways around that. I would recommend this cam.

Very decent camcorder for the price

We needed to replace our old Sony DCR-TRV310 so I researched all of the latest Sony models and in my opinion the CX455 one offered the best bang for the buck (especially if you can get it on sale). It does exactly what I need. It shoots footage in the highest quality and also in a smaller sized MP4 version at the same time so no more having to convert video files before uploading footage to online services. The optics does not seem quite as nice as my TRV310 but it is a much smaller camera and lens. But still excellent quality for everyday use and the portability is amazing (small and light). I considered the CX405 but I feel that it was worth the extra money for the CX455. Haven't utilized all of the features yet but this has been my experience to far.

Long-time Sony customer

I've been a Sony camcorder owner since 1988. This model is the best yet. Lightweight, great touch screen, and the integral USB charger is a real bonus.
