Not in the same league as previous Aiptek HD camcorders

Summary: I have purchased three Aiptek HD camcorders and still have two in use - and like the quality of the videos. It looks like they tried to cut every corner to reduce the manufacturing cost of this unit (and still sell it at about the same price).
Summary: I've had an Aiptek MPVR for a few years, and it works fine, given that it is Standard Definition, 640x480. The colors are well saturated in bright light, and the focus is reasonably sharp. When new it included a charger and one battery, with extra batteries available.
Summary: I had this model before and it lasted about 3 years. I was happy with it and the price was right, so I found another one. Unfortunately this one stopped working after just a few days. Very disappointing.
Summary: They don't tell you until you actually RECIEVE the item that it doesn't come with a battery! So now I need to try and find a battery for it. Wish I could review how the quality and everything is but without a battery I'm out of luck. Not only that, but the camera wasn't packaged correctly.
Summary: I do not understand all these reviews knocking the product. This is a superb camcorder for the money. I suspect that these negative reviewers do not know how to use the product. One reviewer actually said he didn't like it because the battery wouldn't recharge.
