  • Summary: Outdated. Cool when I bought it in like 2004. You would have to be ghetto fabulous to whip one of these bad boys out in the club these days...

Sound volume to poor to use

R Pen, Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: The new creative control to be used with Mac makes this a highly compatible device. The video quality is great but I could never use it. Even with an extreme close up and me speaking as loud as I can without sounding weird in my videos this thing barely picks up the audio.

Buyer beware

  • Summary: I bought Vado First Generation VFD510 in 2009 and used it exactly 5 times. This month it stopped working. It would not turn on or respond to any buttons. Removal of the battery (reset) turns it off and on but still not responding to any buttons.

Didn't work out of the box

FlamingoNut "Tracey", Amazon
23 November 2011
  • Summary: This 2nd gen version was to replace my 1st gen Creative Vado 8GB HD, ordered from Amazon in May 2009 (for $180). I had gotten LOTS of use out of the 1st gen, and decided to get another as a backup, since the USB plug is starting to fray at the elbow.

Low Reliability, Bad Batteries, Wish I Hadn't Bought It

MrsP, Amazon
25 October 2011
  • Summary: Purchased the Vado HD 8GB Pocket Video Camcorder, 2nd Gen in October 2009. Vado wouldn't work upon receipt, easy return & replacement via Amazon. Happy with the replacement Vado, I ordered an additional new battery in December 2009 for a spare.

A $50 Hunk Of Junk

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 June 2011
  • Summary: The image and sound playback on this thing is terrible. Not only is the audio barely audible, it doesn't match up with the image. I recorded part of my sister's wedding and the image plays back very choppy, and the audio is about 2 seconds off. I should have spent more on a better quality camera.

Dead Gadget After 1 Year

21 April 2011
  • Summary: I am making a review after 1 year and two months of using this Vado cam. It is a nice product in terms of video quality but if you are a mac user, don't get this. This is because the video format is not compatible with imovie and if you will try to convert with the software they provide then you...

Complete junk -- and backed by the worst service on the planet!

TJW "Tim Weichman", Amazon
18 February 2011
  • Summary: I ordered a VADO pocket video cam from Amazon. When I got it I the latch for removing the battery cover was locked solid. Wouldn't budge. Finally found a way to pry the cover off, installed the battery, charged the unit for 7 hours, disconnected it, wouldn't power on.

I'm just say'n

treetopflyer, Amazon
11 February 2011
  • Summary: I read a lot of reviews and decided on the 2nd gen 8gb which comes with an HDMI cable. I don't really care about the stereo difference that the 3rd gen offers. But, be aware that these 2nd gen cameras, as mine probably was, has been lying around several years with the battery in the box, and won't...
