Best Buy offers the refurbished JVC 720p SD Card HD Digital Camcorder, model no. GZ-HM30BUS, for $129.99 with free shipping. That’s the lowest total price we could find for a refurb by $20, and $49 under the lowest total price we could find for a new unit today. (It’s also the least expensive 720p SD camcorder we’ve seen with an optical zoom.) Sales tax is added where applicable. Features include 1280×720 (720p) SD card recording, 200x digital zoom, 40x optical zoom, 2.7″ widescreen LCD, HDMI and USB connectivity, and more.

A 90-day warranty applies, although it’s unclear who backs it.
