decent camera when it works; bad, annoying customer service

Summary: First of all, the pictures and video it takes come out fine for the price we paid, however after about 7 months something went wrong with the charging process and it would not charge anymore. We contacted the company, and they sent us the repair information. After about 3 weeks or so, it was determined that it could not be repaired. They then sent us a replacement (a refurbished model) that did not work out of the box.
Summary: This was an Amazon deal of the day, and I can kind of see why. The software that comes with it is terrible (essentially non-existent), and it really doesn't offer a lot of flexibility. Not a lot of storage either.
Summary: I was looking for a easy to use, easy to upload, inexpensive video camera to capture little moments of our son. I was not looking for amazing quality. The camera is very small and lightweight, which is great. The buttons and other parts feel cheap, but it is a cheap camera so it's to be expected. The quality of the video is not great, but perfectly fine for our purposes - it is better outside. The first time I uploaded video on to our Mac, it was easy and automatic.
Summary: Bought this for my teenage nephew and he was so excited for it on his birthday...he was going to do a lot of videoing of his music playing. After a week and a half it didn't hold or take a charge which was a huge disapointment. We contacted company twice and they never got back to us, too bad.
Easy to use and wonderfully portable, but terrible quality

Summary: If you want a really cheap video camera for your child to play with, then this may just be the perfect fit. If you want something that takes halfway decent pictures and video, look elsewhere. I bought this for a camping/floating trip. It was waterproof, which was awesome, and easy to carry on our raft and keep track of. It took pictures instantly, without any delay at all. I was able to take videos and tons of pictures and still have plenty of battery life left.
Summary: I bought this for my grandson for Christmas. Luckily I opened it the other day to make sure it worked and found that the video is fine, but the sound is terrible. I tried yelling into it and that didn't make a difference. I looked online for help because the included brochure had very little information. Kodak suggested using the "up" key during playback to increase the volume. That did very little to help.
Summary: Broke in two days. After resetting, only the word Kodak appears and then it goes dead. Emailed Kodak and had to mail in for repair. Movie's are not even close to Flip Camera quality and still photos are disappointing. UPDATE: Kodak did promptly send me a new camera replacement after about a week and it works much better. I've changed from one star to two stars since it seems to have better quality than the first one.
Summary: I got that camera for my son in February. Liked the design and how easy it is in use. He didn't use it every day, but still was glad to shoot some pictures/video of his friends here and there. Never dropped it in a water or so. It's June 10, and camera is dead. Can't turn it on, can't charge (probably run out of battery), the computer doesn't see it. The problem seems is USB connection. Pretty disappointing.
Summary: I just received this camera as a gift and will report back when I take it underwater in Costa Rica. Meanwhile, i performed one operation so far - recharging it on my Win7 laptop. While charging, it installed some viewer spew-ware called ArcSoft Connect and MediaImpression Photo Viewer. These godawful hunks of crap took over file associations for about 25 file types, including all normal image formats, and even PSD files! For what???
