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.
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.

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.
Summary: I bought this product for my daughter for her birthday. It arrived later than promised and the package was missing everything but the camera. No instructions, no battery (must have been removed by previous customer and not checked by Creative).
Summary: I bought this product in May 2011. At the beginning, everything works properly until one day, suddently, the on/off button does not work. It happened when I watched the vedio, I have to remove the battery to stop it. The problem was fixed for a while.
Summary: Do not buy this product. It does not come with any instructions. No quick start guide. No user manual. It also does not come with the HDMI cable, though the product description says it does. My Vado also would not turn on. I returned it for a refund. Buyer beware.
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...
