  • Summary: It kills the battery by turning on by itself spontaneously. The size is good, the quality if ok. 2 stars.

cheap, ugly but functional

Jeffrey Layne Bruton, Amazon

  • Summary: $37, most basic camera available. seems a 'decent' build although on the 'disposable' side. no features - just point and shoot. Charges via USB cable. very poor audio quality.too large for 'covert' use however, because of size, fits well in hand. no motion detection.

Missing Parts!! Bummer! Don't Buy Reburb

  • Summary: Only item included was the camcorder and a battery. Missing was: USB Extension Cable, HDMI Cable, and Silicon Skin. What a bummer! Yeah you have to hang the camcorder from the computer everytime you download or charge. I can see the USB breaking off the camcorder over many uses.

  • Summary: After seeing this on HSN and then reading the reviews, I purchased this. I got it two days later and was so excited... until I tried it. It did take nice looking video, but the audio was not matching with the video.

If it worked, I'd be satisfied

Amazon Customer "americanpride", Amazon
12 January 2010
  • Summary: Received my Vado HD. Plugged it in to charge and sync with the computer. All appeared to work fine. I was able to take video, although originally it turned itself off after 1 minute of video (this is apparently a feature of the camera...sometimes frustrating feature).

Creative is short-changing customers

Peter Davies, Amazon
26 November 2009
  • Summary: Buying a Vado HD camcorder is equivalent to buying a great car that has no wheels. While the camera itself serves its purpose well, the extremely poor software that comes with it is deplorable.The included software, called Vado Central, does allow you to watch your videos on your computer screen but...

Complete waste of money

M. Horton "Michael", Amazon
13 November 2009
  • Summary: I paid $199.99 for the unit, hoping that it would be a useful combination for project photos and site inspections. It is impossible to take shots outside without a lot of camera shake. The screen is impossible to read in direct sunlight so one does not know when it is recording or not.

Stopped functioning right after 2 weeks...

Andrew, Amazon
6 August 2009
  • Summary: After two weeks the device was no longer detected by my computer or any other computer I plugged it into. The device comes with no CD and the built-in drivers are supposed to install automatically when you plug it in. BEWARE OF CREATIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! It really is awful.

Did not work right - had to return to Amazon.com

Ken A, Amazon
19 June 2009
  • Summary: I ordered my Vado HD last week. Originally I was going to purchase the Flip Mino HD, but then decided to go with the VADO since I liked the 8 GB memory (twice that of the FLIP) and I researched a number of reviews on sites all over the Internet that said that while the picture was not as good as the...
