Summary: i bought this to make simple videos of projects that we were making at work and it does exactly what it says on the tin. easy to use - i love that you can just use the USB stick to plug directly into your PC/laptop and download the recording. very simple & easy.
Summary: do not buy this heap of rubbish. like another review said Google it and you will find 1000s of these cameras are faulty. I have had 2 of these cameras first one had to be returned to the manufacture because it would not turn on (At my own expense). to the czech republic no repair centres in UK. a very common problem (I wish I had Google it before i bought mine) got the 2nd one back after 2 weeks same problem.
Summary: Taking videos can be complicated, but this is simple; press the red button. And because it's simple it means we use it quite a lot. The image quality is fine, the sound's fine - this is just family memories kinda stuff. It uses 2 x AA batteries and gets through them quite quickly. Transferring the videos to my computer is easy. The software included is actually pretty good. Recommended.
Summary: I purchased this item for my father who is 80 so that he could film and plug straight into the tv to see what he had filmed. I planned to download to disc for him once he had filled the memory. He had filmed only 20 minutes on holiday within the first year and the facility to view via the tv stopped working. This makes it a waste of money for him as he can't use a computer.
