Solid state drives (SSDs) have so much going for them theyre lighter, smaller, tougher and faster than conventional hard drives, and more reliable to boot
Samsung is the first to put one in a camcorder, giving you room for about 7.5 hours
Loads of space for HD footage
Attractive design
Comfortable rotating grip
Putting a SSD into the 106SP is like dropping a Ferrari engine into a Segway it doubles the cost and doesnt really add much to the experience

Solid-state drive adds unnecessary price premium
So-so video quality
