4.0 out of 5 stars Very clear, 8 Dec. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use voice ommunication in games a lot, and I tend to not go for a microphone and headset combination as I like to have full use of my games in surround sound. Loev the feel of it like that.
Anwyay, I wanted a new headset for just one ear. This was the perfect solution.
I use a program called Ventrilo, for those who don't know it a lot of gamers use it to voice communicate outside of the games inbuilt vocie comms - if it has any.
The sound quality of the vocies is perfect, VERY clear, and I myself sound very clear to my frends.

I find the ear hook comfortable with no problems. However, the ear piece itself, can be a pain to get in your year, as it is to big to fit "inside" the year alone, so it CAN work loose sometimes...maybe thats just my ears. So I do find myself adjusting the headset from time to time. This isnt a major problem, and the overal quality of the headset makes up for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant piece of kit!, 10 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Received my Flip today (1 day late, but Royal Mail's fault, NOT Amazon's)

I have been looking round for a digital camcorder, some over £100. As I didn't want to spend a lot I saw this one and heard good things about it.
Good things I can agree with.

Came in a nice stylish box (first impressions are important to me), and lifts out nicely with the Flip on top and underneath you get x2 AA batteries, video cable, pouch, cord and manuals etc.

Batteries easily go in the front panel by unlocking it from the bottom and sliding the front down.
Once the batteries are in, it's ready to go! Switch it on from the side, set the date, and then hit record!
Plug it in via USB, installs in a few seconds and you can access all your video files just like you would browse a USB drive or any other memory card.
You can then either copy, edit, burn your files.

The quality I was impressed with. As it uses DivX it does have a SMALL amount of artifacts in the video, but not enough to put you off.
I was very impressed with how it handles different lighting conditions, from going dark to light etc.

Overall, it's a great piece of kit. SO easy to use, no annoying menus, just easy press buttons which do what they say!
Cannot fault this superb piece of kit.

If they bring out one that holds more footage(I know they have the Mino, but it doesn't hold more) I will most likely buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 8 Oct. 2008

Fits the lens perfectly, has a nice fabric feel on the inside for that pro feeling to it.
It isn't overly big, nice size and shape.

Does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spot on, 8 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brought this as a lens that can stay on my camera majority fo the time, and it have proven spot on for this!

The IS got me mostly attracted to the lens, a shame it isn't f2.8, but when I get more money, then I'll buy an L lens for that!

The zoom does extend on its own sometimes when facing down, can be annoying, but not a primary issue with the lens.

Some people say the old IS is dated, well, after using both the old and new IS (on a L Lens), you can't tell that much difference! The viewfinder doesn't jump like some people say about this lens.

Overall I'm very pleased i got it, and as I said the IS is a great addition for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 8 Oct. 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After digging up the old Alpha Centari game, I wanted to play some of the newer ones.
Found this and Loved it!
Very addiction, nice graphics. Didn't have any compatibility or crash issues with it.
I would say that the characters in the game can be some what annoying and almost a bit childish, but can be easily ignored!
Overall a very fun and worth while game with lots of different out comes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough!, 8 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was after a hard wearing pen drive, as I have a tendancy to break the plastic ones in my pocket!
This has doen the job perfectly! I have had it for quite a few months now and it is still going strong. The screw on lid is stilltight and solid, I have even dropped it a few times, and it still works perfect!
I wish I had gone for the 4GB version, but saying that, for my use I haven't filled it yet - as I don't backup files to it, just files I carry round with me etc.
Highly recommended for someone after a tough pen drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive!, 22 Sept. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
WOW!
I upgraded from an 8600GTS to this, and the improvement is unbelivable!
Ran 3DMark06 on it and gained 3000+ points!
Runs the new Team Fortress 2 (beta) at 150FPS! FULL settings!
Runs fine on my system with a 500W Power Supply.

NOTE: This card is 220mm long, so make sure it will fit in your case, mine just fits in with about 10mm gap between the card and Hard Drive.

The price of this card, and with next day delivary, you just can't beat!
Many thanks Amazon.

Im even tempted ot get another one soon and run them both in SLI :D

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT!, 28 Dec. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gotta love this camera!

My Third Kodak camera now, and this one is amazing! Does all the things you need it to do plus more!

If you wanna spend more money, you can get lenses that fit onto the adpater it coems with, so far I have got macro lenses, polarising lenses, wide angle lenses, and a lot more.

This camera also "blurs" its background when taking photos of subjects/objects, like you see the Professional SLR cameras do.

Has many built in features, I love taking photos, and using this camera just gives them that professional edge!
