Decent SD video quality and convienent;Poor quality construction
8 January 2013
Summary: The camera will not power off at all until I take the battery out. This unit lasted roughly 2years before having that problem.Creative Labs product have given me problems in the past.I had a speaker system that hissed and pop and then failed all within 2months.
Summary: I had this device for over a year now, and it died 6 months of usage. I will say there were signs that it was dying. I would have to remove the battery after it sat for a day or two. But I would have expected it to last at least a year. Lesson learn, buy a full Camcorder.
Summary: Small, easy to use as a camcorder, easy to manage when plugged into PC (Windows 7). Video quality is OK if you have good lighting. Indoor and dark videos will look terrible. HD and HD+ videos seem about the same quality but I imaging the HD+ option uses a higher bit-rate.
Good Camera, Bad Microphone (not good if you have a Mac)

Summary: This camera is very useful however the problem is the built in microphone. I always have to edit the audio on Imovie. Also, if you have a Mac, this is not the best camera. I need to use a special software to convert the videos for Imove.
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.
