Summary: Had to return it. Came with a DEAD battery. Would not take a charge with USB or New Charger. It was a gift....so I am quite embarrassed. DO NOT BUY!!! I ordered a second one and it also has a near-dead battery that won;t fully charge!!! AVOID!!!!
Summary: A waste of time and money. The battery was dead on arrival and wouldn't charge despite every option. I wish I had read more reviews prior to this purchase as it seems this is a common problem. Apparently this is an older model. AND, the price tag on the actual box, which was from a discount store, was 1/4 of what I paid for it! Disappointing and frustrating.
Summary: We purchased this for our son for his birthday. To our dismay, the unit never charged or even turned on. We returned it and are left finding a different, and belated, birthday gift for our budding movie director. He had an older Flip he dearly loved that petered out after about five years but after this experience, we seriously doubt we will buy another Flip product.
Summary: I bought my camera at the end of last year and brought it to record the first steps of my newborn son. Unfortunately I could never turn on my camera. Simply does not work. 100% waste of money. Nobody is able to fix it and i already give up of using this camera. Totally disappointed.
Summary: Just be causios purchasing this because it is such an old product an d they have had horrible issues with it. When I received a mino that did not even charge or turn on, I went right for the Sony Bloggie Touch. I love it and use it. If you are looking to video more than just on your phone but you want something small, I dont suggest this flip device, but I would suggest considering the Sony Bloggie.
Summary: I really really really wanted this product to work. I bought this for my boyfriend who wanted to make music videos on a small scale. This was for his birthday a few weeks ago. The package came on a timely basis. The box of the camera was a little bent, but I didn't think anything of it, and I still don't know if I do. When he opened his present, he was REALLY excited. The camera, however, refused to turn on. We charged it for hours.
