Summary: Like several other reviewers, I bought this camera through Woot (an Amazon discount clearance company). The price was very good and the camera does HD, so I sprung for it. Very much regret it. It was flaky, from day one, with the "won't power on" issue that is well documented online. Sometimes it would, sometimes it wouldn't, sometimes pulling and replacing the battery would reset it.
Summary: I had experienced two of these cameras. One I bouht from Blinq and had to return. Both had the same problem. Power of the cameras simply won't turn on. Many owners complain the same trouble but Toshiba simply isn't giving a damn.Who's money went to drain. Toshiba's?
Summary: It was given to me from someone who got it as a free gift for opening a bank account or something. Glad I didn't pay for it and glad she didn't pay for it. I took only a few videos, perhaps 30 minutes worth, which were okay, but either the battery life is very short or there are other problems with the camera, as the battery goes "dead" within a day or so without even being turned on. Plug it in and sometimes it charges, sometimes it doesn't.
Do yourself a favor and pass on this piece of trash.

Summary: I haven't had the best of luck with Toshiba devices...but this one is by far the worst. Purchased it through "Woot" but I don't recall that it was refurbished or anything like that. As far as any of the "features" being inadequate...I don't know as the thing doesn't even work right out of the box. I charged it...it turns on...it turns off....and if I let it sit (not very long...ten minutes maybe) it won't turn on again.
Summary: Received one of these for Christmas and was thrilled with it, thinking it would be one of my favorite gifts ever. Wrong. Started having problems almost immediately, when I called Toshiba, it was like "oh, just take the battery out and let it reset itself to the factory settings and it will be fine." Wrong again. Sometimes it would take 3 or 4 tries to get it to reset, then it would work for a while, then quit again. Finally, about two weeks ago it quit for good.
Summary: Like someonme else said it turns on when it suits itself no good the audio is mono not stero and very quiet hard to hear on playback.Picture quality if somewhat foggy not good or full HD if you like. wouldn't buy again.
