I had nothing but problems with my Canon HV30 using another brand of tape and head cleaner, but after switching to Panasonic products all my issues have cleared up. I was constantly getting a dirty head warning, but after cleaning it would happen again after only 1 taping session. I originally switched to the Panasonic DVM63AMQ, which is sadly not available now, but the HDVM63MQ seems to be the same exact tape. It is the only brand I will use in my camera going forward, and I am happy to report that after the first cleaning using a Panasonic head cleaner I haven't had any need to repeat, and that was 3 months ago! It is exactly what the doctor ordered!

    Comments about Panasonic AY-HDVM63MQ Mini 63 Minute Master Quality HDV/Pro DV-Compatible Tape:

    I was using the Panasonic HDVM63AMQ Tape, but I understand it's been discontinued. I'm now using the AY HDVM63 MQ which is a compatable tape in our DVX 100B. Yes there are still some uses for this camera and the HDVM63MQ works very well. As a matter of fact I think it has a better built cassette for the tape. The tape produces quality resolution and so far I've had no drop outs on any of the tapes I've shot on.

                    THIS IS FOR THE 83 MIN TAPES... i goofed, but have used these and now buy only the 83 minutes tape. i used other brands until my video mentor/expert said he only uses these in his sony camcorders, and never had a problem in umpteen years. i switched, and as my sony shoots tape and cf cards, i carry them on all shoots where i need an archive. i also like the plastic housing is poly pro and not that breakable styrene.. top notch all the way round. :)

                      I'm so embarrassed at still using tape for my Canon xha1-not for long I hope (new camera on the agenda). But this Panasonic tape runs so smoothly in my camera! Not SONY or other tapes.

                          These tapes work very well and are inexpensive. I still love hdv video for many uses and these tapes are perfect and inexpensive. When possible I try to use one tape brand to increase the life of the tape heads. This is my preferred tape.

                                I shoot HD Lacross games, family, fishing, flying videos. Have never had a problem with these. No drops, blurs or clogged heads. Have gone through more than 35 of these tapes.

                                    I've used this product for several years and have had only one "drop-out" which I am not sure was even the fault of the tape.

                                      I rarely get dropouts. ANd the tape is robust, yet affordable. This is all I buy these days.

                                        I only film in HDV. My camera has never been introduced to a compatible tape until recently. If this tape was put into the original Panasonic OEM blue packaging, I would never notice the difference. In fact, it seems to be wound more evenly than the the OEM. I will continue to use this tape and save a few bucks with every purchase.
