Good but not Great! I originally purchased the Techgear screen protector for my Dext and found it to be a perfect fit and easy to apply. Brilliant! Absolutely perfect fit to my sony ericsson C905 also worked reasonably well with my digital camera. Prompt delivery, well packaged.

Discs you can use with your camcorder are 8cm DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-R and DVD+R DL discs. See page 4 for the types of Memory Stick you can use in your camcorder. Still images are recorded only on a Memory Stick PRO Duo.
Recording format for DVD-RW
When you use a DVD-RW, you can choose the recording format from VIDEO mode or VR mode. In this manual, VIDEO mode is indicated as and VR mode as.
A recording format that is compatible with most DVD devices, especially after finalizing. In VIDEO mode, only the most recent movie can be deleted. A recording format that enables editing with your camcorder (deleting and rearranging the order of images). A finalized disc can be played back in DVD devices that support VR mode. Refer to the instruction manual of your DVD device to see whether it supports the VR mode of DVD-RW.
