Easy to use, decent qualitySep 25, 2010
I bought this device for three reasons:
1. I wanted something that was simple to use. I've got a Canon 5D Mark II with L lenses, so I can take uber-high quality 1080P video when I want to. However, I wanted something that my wife, mom, and maybe someday my kids could use. All you need to do is push a button to turn it on, and push another button to start recording. Piece o' cake.
2. I wanted something portable. I can stick this thing in my pocket. Can't do that with the DSLR.
3. I wanted something cheap. I got mine on sale for about $50.
The quality of the video is pretty good. Not as good as my DSLR, but considerably better than my non-HD point-and-shoot camera. The metering doesn't adjust quite as fast as I'd like it to (low-light video doesn't look so hot, and bright backgrounds will look pretty bad too) but overall I'm very happy with my purchase. It's perfect for home video of the family.

Disappointed! But ease of return.Aug 21, 2011
By Madison Shatto
I was looking around on amazon for a video camera that I could use for HD video. Yes, I have cameras that take great video as well, but I was looking for one with a specific purpose of taking video. When I found this camera, I read all of the reviews, and I was debating with myself to either save up a few more bucks and buy an e-reader, or buy this camera. I decided to buy this camera, and ordered.
I got free shipping, and it came in about a weeks time (not bad for free). The box, although it's a b-stock, was in almost perfect condition, with only the slightest nick on the corner of it. The item was in great condition. It comes with not only the camera, but a cover for it to protect it from falls, and it comes with a USB extender, since it's attached to the camera.
I tried out the quality automatically, and at first I was really impressed! On the 2" screen, the video looks and sounds great for the price. But whenever I uploaded the video onto my computer, I was SO DISAPPOINTED! The files are AVI, which would be okay if any other video editing software besides the one that comes with the camera was compatible with AVI. And the quality and playback is awful once uploaded to the computer. It lagged a lot, and was so grainy!
As an earlier review had said, I tried to simply convert the file into mp4. But for some reason no matter what software I use, it doesn't really work. I'm so disappointed with this product.
The only reason I'm giving two stars was because it came in good condition, shipping was fairly fast, and the video looked great on the actual camera....
I'm changing my two starts to four stars because the seller was very good about refunds.... I got my refund in about a week after I sent the item back, and I was also paid for the shipping. Good seller... Just not so good product.

Love the ease of use, battery unreliable.Apr 17, 2011
The camera was great for a few months, than it started not turning on and would turn off after only 5 minutes of continuous use. If I pulled the battery out and then put it back in, it seemed to be okay for a while. But now, after less than four months, it's a struggle to even get it to turn on. Great price. Bought two, and they both have the same problems now.
