Summary: The product is awesome in a lot of ways. Small, compact, great flip out memory stick but the batteries last 1 day at most with intermittent video taking. Maybe I just need to remove the batteries in between use. Otherwise I like the quality of the images and recommend it.
Summary: I actually bought this for a friend's wedding gift, so I review based on the video she has shown me, and the things she has said about it. The footage I've seen is pretty decent. Just don't breathe too hard or you'll hear it on playback.
Summary: i had the flip for 1 1/2 months and now it not working. It stops functioning after I started my first uploading of video to my laptop. Not sure if this is just an exception. It took great video shots but now i have no way of seeing the shots i took.
Summary: Bought a Flip for my daughters, one had a problem with hers after a couple months but Amazon replaced no questions asked. Both work fine. The only drawback I saw was trying to take a picture off a clip we had shot, the picture was grainy and not good quality.
Summary: I purchased the Flip Video Cam in Oct 2008. I always do a good deal of research before buying something - both on Amazon and elsewhere on the web. And I am tech savvy.
The main problem with the camcorder is the button. Other reviewers have mentioned this - specifically that you need to press hard.

Summary: Bought the Flip Ultra HD in November 2009. POSITIVES It is the easiest video camera I've ever used - literally push big red button to stop and start, it's great for those who aren't looking for something highly technical (Had a Panasonic DVD Camcorder before and it was far too complicated with...
Summary: Briefly, we were delighted to open the Flip (a birthday present to my husband) and to be able to use it instantly. Very easy. Good, simple design. At last a camcorder that all the family can use. We successfully viewed our footage on a MacBook. Fantastic!
Great little video camera but problems with playback on PC and TV

Summary: I wanted a simple to use but high picture quality video camera because like many people with an old video camera I don't use it much due to the bulkiness / inconvenience. The Flip seemed to tick the boxes in this respect and we have had great fun taking videos.
Summary: A very nice and well designed little camera which gives good results. But because it's Ultra HD the file sizes are absolutely huge. The other thing to be aware of is that neither Windows Movie Maker nor imovie actually recognise the format this camera uses. - (MP4) .
Great camera shame it doesn't give you what it claims when uploading via flip!

Summary: I bought the Flip Ultra HD 8gb last week. It is an amazing camera. The sound quality and picture are supurb when you upload it to your computer. I am completely impressed with how the bass is not diminished as it is on most cameras. It is so easy to use. I LOVE it!
