Summary: I first want to say picture and sound are very nice. Very easy to use. However, I just took it on a vacation and the battery indicator said it had about 25% battery life left when the thing crapped out.
Summary: It's small light and easy to use, woopty doo. But if you have a smart phone that will make videos, it would be stupid to carry this thing along with you too. And the video isn't really all that nice.
Summary: Based on all of the positive reviews and the price, I decided to try this camera sight-unseen. It is a nice looking device and appears to be easy to use. However, the first one I bought showed a full battery but wouldn't turn on. Had to buy another one and had the same problem!
Summary: I've had this mini-cam for almost two years. The VADO's picture and especially sound quality are impressive, but the widescreen view sometimes makes it difficult to capture the full vertical effect.
Summary: I have found the video quality of this camcorder to be consistent with its price, which in the end isn't too shocking. What surprised me is that the video quality, even on the highest HD quality setting, is still far below the HD quality of my Kodak camera which is not even a dedicated video camera...
Be aware when trasfering the files to your computer.

Summary: Be warned - Once you transfer the videos to an external PC and rename the files while the Vado is still being connected to the PC, the Vado cannot longer recognize them and play them on its own.
Summary: I bought this camera 22/04/2010...It takes great screen view and movies...But after same days using this camera movies became upside down...This is very boring....and no help from creative yet...So record movies open vado offical software on your PC, than try to open another player..
Summary: Bought this for my wife's birthday, but might have to send back. At the advice of other reviews, I bought a wall charger and extra battery, but the life of the batteries seems to be 2 hours at best before switching out. Don't know if I got one bum battery, but 2?
