Shipped with defective battery pack

Summary: The camera functions well - but only when connected to a power source via the USB charge cable. The battery which came with the camera had no charge when it arrived. After charging for two days, the battery pack still would not hold a charge.
Summary: I wanted to ask Larry about the difference in the ZOOM function between the Creative, which he likes, and the Koday Playsport. I will mostly be using this camcorder for short (1-10 minute) videos of my salon to post to website and social media. I will need TWO THINGS..
Summary: This is a good product for vs the money that you paid. But Battery didn't work , I has to buy a new battery then my Vado HD work without problem. It was very frustrating for me , because I missed to record my holidays with my family.
Below average contrast and color. A pain to make DVD's. Nice to have audio in though!

Summary: Just unpacked this little guy. Simple to use...easy and intuitive video and pic taking. The end results were mediocre compared to other products after seeing many reviews on the web. Check out other reviews pointing to contrast problems and video color issues.
Like UPS the drivers/cameras are better than the back office...

Summary: Length:: 1:47 Mins It's a really decent little cam. It is a little chintzy compared to the Flip Mino/Ultra or Kodak 6/8, more like a DXG. But, my big gripe is the back office. It is like UPS - really (underlined) annoying. I dnld the Mac package .. it requests to update the cam ..
Summary: I was excited when I received the Vado HD Pocket Video Cam. Our previous video camera is old and outdated. I was pleased with the size of the camera, it's about the size of a Blackberry or other type of device.
Excerpt: i bought this a couple of months ago and have not had a problem yet, it is great. I was looking for a good hd camera for quite some time and this one had so many features for the lowest price. The picture/video hd quality is so good it looks like a proffesional camera.
The VADO HD (3rd Gen) is the best handheld HD video-cam!

Excerpt: I bought the Vado HD a few weeks ago. I read reviews, comparisons and did my research. I had the choice of a Vado HD (2nd or 3rd Gen), a Flip Mino and the Kodak Zi8. It seemed the Vado HD was the best choice available, since it boasted a great feature called 'wide angled lens'.
Pros: light, great video quality, easy to use
Cons: touch sensitive buttons get pressed without knowing
