Summary: Already having a Flip UltraHD camera myself I purchased this for my niece's birthday. Newest Model doesn't mean improvements, it means cheaper construction and less amenities than the original. I can't tell you how the camera operated as we didn't have BATTERIES(not included).
Summary: I purchased this video camera based on the positive reviews. None of the reviews mentioned the problem with charging the battery. Right out of the box this camera did not work and the battery did not charge. On YouTube it appears some video cameras work right out of the box and others do not.
Summary: I was recording the same it was second time I used it. It just stopped working, sad to have made the decision to buy it. And I was beyond the return period. In-fact it was the first electronic item that has ever done this to me :(
Summary: This is a nice little video camera, however it has one flaw. I purchased this for my sister because she enjoys recording random videos to post to youtube and she thoroughly enjoyed this camera until the dreadful "LOW BATTERY" sign popped up after 30 minutes of use.
Summary: I purchased the flip video camera to take short vidoes of my kids. For that purpose, I guess I could say it worked. I should have done more research though. I discovered after buying it that it did not come with rechargeable batteries, a wrist strap, or cables to connect it to my HDTV.
Falls short in many ways - explore several other options

Summary: For a product backed by a good cash rich company, namely Cisco - this product fall way short in my opinion. I bought the product and returned it for Kodak PlaySport Zx3 Waterproof and compare for yourself.
Summary: I bought the MinoHD (model M2010M). 8GB model (built-in battery) UPDATE: December 2014: I no longer use these cameras. They were great, when they worked, but I experienced battery failures again and again. Finally, I just switched to my iPhone, which is simple and reliable.
