Excerpt: I have a changed opinion for Creative products nowadays. They seem to come in all sorts of colors. Most importantly, they’re actually loaded with optional accessories. I was quite surprised that their colors looked pretty standard in my point of view, blue,pink,black,white,etc.
Summary: I got this because the hand cams were bulky and heavy, this pocket cam solved the moment when you always wish you had a camera on hand. I purchased this camera when it was on sale, don't pay more that $30-40 bucks for this. I love the wide angle lens. The update firmware on the VADO website stabilized the image so good, there's no more shaking like the previous reviewers experienced.
STEP 1- BUY NEW BATTERY, THROW OUT ONE FROM CREATIVE

Summary: I have read plenty of reviews and threads talking about this being a great camera when it actually turns on (go figure:)) When I first bought it I had low expectations due to several reviews said it was a 'good value'. Almost immediately I had problems with it turning on unless it was plugged into via USB (doesn't seem practical to plug in a mini-cam to USB before using each time-lol) Nonetheless I trudge through usage holding down the power button and double clicking...
Summary: I purchased the VADO HD a while ago and still use it to this day. It might not the most up-to-date mini video recorder out there but it has some nice features. WHAT I LIKED: HIGH DEFINITION Too bad it’s only 720P instead of FULL HD 1080P. I guess 720P is better than non-HD. SIMPLE TRANSFERS & CHARGING Charging & transferring videos and pictures is unbelievably simple. You just pull out the built-in USB adapter and plug it in.
