Summary: Would not recommend. I only had this two weeks but in that time it would not charge properly and it would not hold the charge. My daughter had an earlier version of this and the pictures and video were so clear but every video and picture on this camera was fuzzy.
Summary: All you have to do is a quick internet search and you will find just how often, how quickly, and how many of these camcorders fail. I had mine two years, first time I used it it worked fine for the first few times. Now, just as with so many others, the unit has failed when i really needed it.
Summary: I am a drama teacher and I purchased this camera to record classroom and after school performances. It works fine for short, up close videos, but the zoom quality is poor. I bought an SD card to record my longer performances. The camera will over heat and turn off.
Summary: On my 2nd Battery, and already having problems. 1 - It just stopped working after 4 months, just would not turn on 2 - As another poster stated, it will not record after a set amount of time. I set it to record for 40 minutes, and then hit the stop button, it freezes the camera.
Summary: I'm on my 3rd Camcorder and experiencing the same problem ... this company is selling defective products. Will not shut down ... battery drains. Sound volume nearly zero. Extemely poor picture quatlity. This product is defective.
Summary: My parents bought this camera for my husband and I this Christmas. We received it early, so I was able to start using it right away. At first I liked it, however the shape is a bit awkward and not as comfortable to hold as bigger cameras. I recorded my husbands 27th birthday party just fine.
Less than 1 week and the touchscreen fails... seriously?

Summary: Had the device for less than a week... used to shoot vid of dogs playing... worked fine... Touch Screen started flickering then stopped working for no apparent reason. Seriously... less than 1 week and it craps out on me? I mean, c'mon?! Seriously?! This thing's going back ASAP!
Summary: Very disappointed with my new Toshiba Camileo S30 camcorder just purchased last month, especially I'm now traveling in the overseas and now I cannot continue to use the camcorder for recording my trip.

Summary: I bought this camera one mount ago, it looks very nice, and it is little. It worked very good for three times, the fourth time the LCD screen didn't turned on, the camera still work, take pictures and videos, but the LCD still off.
Summary: I got this camera thinking I was going to have this beautiful clear video with ease. I have tried multiple settings and kept the camera very still. It never appears to be HD. It's always a little fuzzy. It gets exponentially worse when I zoom. This was a terrible purchase.
