The Creative Labs Vado HD records good video; however

D. J. TRETINA "dancerg1rl", Amazon

  • Summary: The Creative Labs Vado HD records good video; however, the file is too large to upload to a computer. This was disappointing, as I had bought it mainly for this purpose.

  • Summary: Too bad I was out of warranty, had only used this maybe 10 times. Would not buy Vado again but then who would now that we have GoPro I guess?

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.

Junk

Confederate, Amazon
19 January 2011
  • Summary: This is a miserable little gizmo. I put mine on a small tripod and tried to interview my father about his war days. Not only was the focus much too soft, the sound is terrible, even from just a few feet! This is clearly for infinity focus (I think it's just set focus, not auto focus).

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.

Was not impressed

  • Summary: One we received was damaged, so we returned it for a refund and have never looked back. I might consider another if I find one around $50, about how much any of these are worth.

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, 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.
