Summary: I have now owned the Samsung U10 for around 14 months, but within the next month I will be getting rid. Firstly to be fair, I will list the good points; * It is incredibly light and compact, easily fitting into your pocket. * It starts up reasonably quick if you need to turn it on in a hurry.
Summary: Well, i bought this as it was recommender to me, and at first, i noticed that filming at 720p downwards, there was a much smaller amount of area being filmed, and the quality at 480 was very grainy.
camera just doesn't work - no customer satisfaction

Summary: I was actually looking to buy the Flip because it was well reviewed by pretty much everyone. I only bought this as the style was neat. I instantly didn't like it and neither did anyone else in the house. The menus are impossible to navigate.
Summary: Previously had an Aiptek camera that produced brilliant results - camera was only returned to Argos as the battery wouldn't charge. At that point thought I'd upgrade to a higher spec machine, hence I bought the Samsung.
Summary: Having used both the Flip Mino HD, the Kodak Zx1 and the earlier Kodak Zi6, I am quite well placed to grasp the strengths and weaknesses of the Samsung U10. Unfortunately, I struggled to see many strengths... It comes well-specced, with full 1080p recording ability.
Summary: Why a waste? No optical zoom, Non replaceable battery, terrible in low light, average movie quality, small LCD. A half decent digital camera does exactly the same as the U10 and much more. Definately poor value.
Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. It is the first one (at least that I have seen) to provide full HD at this price and it feels really comfortable to hold. However, I have real issues with the quality of the pictures it captures.
