Summary: I bought this camera because it was inexpensive and I wanted to be able to make some family video. When the product arrived it was dead out of the box. The battery would not charge. The camera would not work, even when plugged in. The green LED would light up and that was it. Complete and total junk.
Summary: I purchased this camera because it seemed to have a lot of features for the price. I received the item, removed it from the packaging and found that it was dead. The only thing that works on it is the little green power LED. Really poor quality control.
Summary: I like the DXG HD 581 Camcorder because of its light weight and ease of operation. You can just put it on your belt like a phone. I really like that. Unfortunately, my rating on the battery is not so good. I charged the battery when I got it and less than two days later without having used the camera, the battery was dead. I tried charging it again but to no avail. Unfortunately, I had to go and purchase another battery at the cost of $32.00.
Summary: i am not a high tech user!, but this was a VERY in expensive camera. It works fine. Takes nice still shots as well as video. Its compact and battery life is good. As far as the high def. part, you will have to decide for yourself.
Summary: I bought this product on Walgreens.com. The reason I am writing this here is because I want people to know how their customer support is bad. Like I said, I bought this on walgreens.com because it was about 50% off sale. When I got it, the battery charger or battery didn't work. So, I couldn't even use it. So, I had to return it to Walgreen and they said they couldn't take because I lost the packing slip for the product.
