3.0 out of 5 stars My expectations were fulfilled, 28 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mini DV - World's Smallest High Resolution DV/Voice Camcorder (Electronics)
You get exactly what you would expect. It's cheap so I was not expecting much and that is exactly what I got, not much. Locating and removing a micro SD card was difficult and after 3 uses it failed to lock in position. When charged it runs for about 2 hours but after 3 charges both lights came on a stayed on and it would no longer record, not sure if this was due to the micro SD card no longer locking in position properly or some other fault. At under £10 it's not worth the effort of returning it. Picture quality was also what you would expect, i.e. wouldn't amaze you with it's definition but considering the price I thought it was very good in decent light. Obviously not so good as the light got poorer. Would have been perfect for what I wanted it for had it kept working but it didn't. I may have been unlucky and got a dud but at under a tenner I reckon there would be quite a few duds knocking about. Wasn't expecting much, but thought it was worth a gamble at the price. I lost.

Addition - Matrix Discounts contacted me out of the blue and offered a replacement after reading my rating, this was without me requesting a replacement (I didn't think it was worth the bother at under £10). Obviously they have faith in the product and a first class customer relations ethic. With that in mind I have upper my rating from 1 to 3 stars - assuming you get it from Matrix Discounts.

I had this happen to mine as well both lights came on and refused to go off (couldn't even manually turn it off), the first time I let it go flat and it was fine when I recharged it, the second time that was it the battery went flat and it now won't even recharge full stop. I got mine from Ebuyer though not Amazon and it was coming up to around a year old so I didn't do too bad out of it.

I've just ordered a new one from here so lets see how this one goes :)

if the lights are locked it has frozen...uncurl a paper clip and push into the tiny reset hole for 5 secs...fixed!!!

I have had the same problem as S Fletcher and am now left with a camera which is permanently switched on and will not reset. The instructions for resetting are not clear and pushing in the area of reset on the side of the camera did nothing to change the all lights on but no one at home. My son got it as a christmas present and has only used it twice.

if you are after one that works you're better of getting the original product made by veho, its more expensive but will guarantee it will last much longer without any problems.
