Cheap Build & Poor Video

Band Photographer, Amazon
29 April 2008
  • Summary: It has been almost 15 months since I received one of these as part of a large conference promotional give away. I can honestly say this camera is terrible in every aspect. At the conference, about 650 of these cameras were distributed to attendees. The new out of box failure rate was over 10%.

  • Summary: Beware of the 'reviewss" below. My guess is they are all one crank. they use the same diction, and all are reviwers with just one review. I have had this camera for a year it has taken a lot of abuse and not one single problem.

Buyer Beware

  • Summary: I just received this and it had many problems: 1) Battery wound not charge 2) Focus did not work - always blurred 3) Could not find the Memory card 4) joystick like menu buttons are not very accurate - frustrating when trying to browse on screen menus. You want to go right and it selects down.

Paper Weight - DO NOT BUY

Richard Horian, Amazon
1 September 2007
  • Summary: The DV5500 is junk; do not buy. First, all inputs, controls and fittings are sloppy and poorly made ( a button/dial/knob etc. had to be "worked" in order to get it to function; when it fundtioned at all. The camera failed in operation within a month; would not turn on or accept a charge.

Not exactly what I wanted

  • Summary: I purchased a smaller Mustek camera last year to take to Iraq. Great but did not last being run over by a HUMMV. I liked the small camera so I purchased the DV5500 as the replacement.

Don't buy this

Joseph Watson, Amazon
1 September 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera and had to return it, because it was not worth a flip. I used it to record my daughter's Christmas program a few weeks ago, and I was just lucky that I brought another camera. The image was so blurry, you cannot even see anything but fuzz.

OK Cam

JK, Amazon
1 September 2007
  • Summary: This camera is okay as long as you are willing to send it for repairs immediately after you get it because it will probably break down quickly. I sent it several weeks after getting it and received it back repaired and it has been fine since (5 months)It is an ok camera for quick shots and video you...

Not worth the headache

Mavrick106, Amazon
1 September 2007
  • Summary: I've had this camera for 6 days and I have already had to return it. It wouldn't stay on.....just kept shutting off. Mustek kept giving me the run around when I tried to return it, and then had the nerve to ask for 3 copies of my receipt.

Good Camera, good price.

J. Wacke, Amazon
1 September 2007
  • Summary: After owning the Mustek DV5500 for one day, I fell in love with it. I own the Mustek DV4000 and was looking to replace it. The DV5500 can operate in lower light conditions then the DV4000, has way more options and has a built in flash for still pictures only.
