    I am a professional videographer I shoot weddings/music videos/ corporate work, etc.
    This product works along side my Sony HXR-NX5U. It is the best accessory the camera has. It allows you to record 11 hours of 1920x1080 HD 30p at 24 mb/sec. Need I say more? The content is easily ingested into Premiere or Final Cut with the click of a button. Makes turn around time into post a cinch!
    I have had absolutely no problems with the unit. However, I have heard that there are buffering issues when utilizing an SD card at the same time as the unit. However, I have yet to experience this myself.
    For the money this is absolutely the best way to go in my opinion if you want tapeless work flow!

    Expensive!

    This has to be one of the most useful things I've ever seen! Though the reason I hate it is it is so expensive!! Way too much money!

              Great backup especially for shooting narrative films. 10 to 11 hours of footage can sometimes be your whole 4 - 5 days of filming and you have a great complete backup file.

                I have a Sony NEX_EA50M and this is a "must have" accessory for it. I know it's kinda expensive but there's really no getting around it. The video camera also records on a SD card...so with this Memory Unit, you can record the same thing on two different devices at the same time in case one of them fails...you never loose your footage...great feature! Plus buying from B&H...you can't go wrong...highly recommended. The camera is pretty great too.

                    It's great to be able to shoot on both the flash memory unit AND an SD card at the same time.

                    128GB is plenty of space even for long Full HD shoots.

                    *** One Big Problem I have come across is that a few times when I am recording on both the memory unit and an SD card the recording has stopped and a message appears saying "BUFFER OVERFLOW". I don't know what this means. The clip Does not record. Very little info is available about this problem... What to do now?!?...***

I want to also compliment B&H photo also on their extremely professional service and lightning fast delivery. They are a breath of fresh air. Thanks, guys.

                              As a videographer I film a lot events, a few of those events which I cover span days. Having something to hold all that footage is a must.

                              With just under 13 hours, the Flash Memory Unit gives me the ability to capture the footage I need, without having to worry if I'm going to run out of storage space.

                                I love it. It does what I need and I knew regardless of the price I would end up purchasing it because I couldn't find anything else out there to take its place on the road. But does it really need to be that expensive? (minus one star for price)

                                  Use it for working on sports news, so need fast sending and it works great. It should cost less. Is just a memory, why that cost?

                                        This unit is almost indispensible with the HXR-NX5U camera. The drive is very fast and provides many hours of recording time, even at the highest quality setting. The large capacity is wonderful.

                                        It is small and connects via USB to easily download the contents. Make sure you understand how to correctly copy AVCHD footage to your computer from this drive, as it is not always as simple as drag and drop.

                                        Overall, a great product that will serve you well!

                                            Great unit that is easy to attach. Great way to get 128 gigs of backup! No more sweating while worrying about SD card failure because sony has incorporated the ability to record a redundant back up. But it can be used for single record as well. Also, it doesn't take up any extra space as it swaps out with an existing cover.
