Worth the $

Larry K., Newegg
26 June 2007
  • Summary: For $100 plus bucks, what do you want? It's well worth the $.
  • Pros: Looks cool! It's light and has a lot of bells and whistles for a $100 camera. Video quality is decent; sound quality is great. Also, the pictures taken by the camera are a lot better than noted in previous reviews.
  • Cons: Pausing and restarting while filming videos causes loud clicking noises in the videos. I haven't figured out how to resolve this, but I am able to edit the noise out of the videos with video editing software.

Fantastic DVR

Jeremiah D., Newegg
16 May 2007
  • Summary: This is a fantastic DVR for the casual user who wants to make VIDEOS, but not use it for anything else. Also, teamed up with the 1GB Transcend SD cards here on Newegg, you can't get a better deal.
  • Pros: Compact, with intuitively-placed controls. Large screen for the price. With 30fps VGA, you can't get any smoother videos, either. Turns on and off quickly for those candid shots too!
  • Cons: The still camera feature is second rate with blurry, pixelated images. Also, with only the ability to upgrade to 1GB SD cards for storage - still only gives you ~30 min. of recording time @ 640x480.

Really Disappointed

  • Excerpt: Video Recordings The video quality is very good and the sound quality is okay. However the camera makes a kind of crackling noise in the recording when it has moved which I found to be very annoying. Photographs I was really dissappointed with the photo quality.
  • Pros: Good video recordings, Light and easy to carry around
  • Cons: Takes bad pictures, Difficult to use
