Great piece of gear

Summary: Great piece of gear. Simple to use, wont shatter when dropped, good battery life. It was really nice to shove in a pocket or bag when travelling. Especially when that travel is off the concrete and away from chargers.
Summary: I needed a little pocket camera for vlogging and this does a pretty good job. My camera didn't come with the mesh pouch that it says it's supposed to (took off a star for that)...I ended up buying a case that will better protect my camera. It's really easy to use!
Summary: I got this because the hand cams were bulky and heavy, this pocket cam solved the moment when you always wish you had a camera on hand. I purchased this camera when it was on sale, don't pay more that $30-40 bucks for this. I love the wide angle lens.
STEP 1- BUY NEW BATTERY, THROW OUT ONE FROM CREATIVE

Summary: I have read plenty of reviews and threads talking about this being a great camera when it actually turns on (go figure:)) When I first bought it I had low expectations due to several reviews said it was a 'good value'.
Summary: I purchased the VADO HD a while ago and still use it to this day. It might not the most up-to-date mini video recorder out there but it has some nice features. WHAT I LIKED: HIGH DEFINITION Too bad it’s only 720P instead of FULL HD 1080P. I guess 720P is better than non-HD.
Great Camera and a great price but similar results to my iphone

Summary: Im used to use it alot more but since I got my iphone its just been a toy for my kids since the quality on the iphone and probably most high end smart phones are probably the same. build quality was good and was easy to use.
Summary: For some reason I didn't see any issues posted on here about powering on the Vado HD when I bought it. But I did have issues with it when it finally arrived. Once turned off it only seemed to turn on when I plugged the USB to my WIN laptop.
Summary: Great for ease of use, small size. Effectively makes nice movies. Drawbacks: If you want to take several clips and make them into one movie, the software won't allow it, instead you are "prompted" to go download and pay for vado software that does this.
Summary: My son is very happy with this camcorder. The only issue we found was when you put the thick rubber case on you can not get the power to go on. He has to use it without the case or we need to find a thinner one.
