Default Sony HDR-CX190 or comparable?

Hi, all. Have a baby coming in a couple of months and want to buy a camcorder. Budget limited $200 or just a little more. I see the sony cx190 reduced to $179. Is this a good choice for the price range or are there other products I should look into? Thanks in advance for any information.

They call them HD camcorders but put standard definition components in them. Unfortunatly at this price point you don't get very good quality video.That said, If you just want to be able to capture video, it will do the job. Here is a link to a review done on it by C/NET.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I am stuck near this price point now and probably won't be upgrading for several years. Would love alternative suggestions if anyone thinks there is a better solution out there for me. ie: other brands, sd video, etc.
Canon vixia HF R300 better or very similar?
