    overall this little camera is very powerful for its price. i got good comments from my friend who watched clips off this camera and they really liked the quality.

    i would highly recommend this camera to people who just want to point and record events. good quality and it is so simple to use. low light performance is amazing.

    i recorded a concert with this and it was awesome, the sound it recorded did not break like many other cameras usually do. it records loud sound very smoothly and you can clearly hear the voice of the artist.

    the only problem i'm having is the battery. i wish it would last longer than 2 hours. but i think that is why they made the battery removable, you might want to get an extra battery if you are going to bring it for a long holiday.

    This is the first generation of Vado HD pocket video recorders. There have been 2 since. This is a real bargain at the moment. You can spend another £30 or so to get the latest version. I would be suprised if the quality is £30 better! Extremely easy to use and for the money the picture quality is excellent.

    I've been using a camcorder for a long time now (not this one, oldest model and different brand) and been watching for a HD cam for a while. This is a good start for understanding HD format and get acquainted with new generation of camcorders (pocket size ones). This model has to be considered as a basic one - do not expect miracles though it is 720p format - everyone who have been making photos know - pixels do not count as much as optics. And one more - if having a shaky grip - avoid filming - due to lack of image stabilization system the filmed material will be sea-sick shaking.
    AS per manual - charging the battery is 7,5 hours in normal and 2,5 hours in rapid conditions, but there's a trick - if you attach it to laptop and turn your computer down by stand-by mode - the USB plugs still can charge your camera up.
    However I should recommend this camera mainly for its price, size and convenient storage capabilities. A great pre-HD camera to wish for.

    So pleased with this purchase! Was a little apprehensive at first with it being so cheap but the quality is good and it is very easy to use! No its not AMAZING quality but for the price and for what it is and what I wanted it for (general messing about) its fab! Dont hesitate in buying this product you wont be disapointed as I have used much more dearer products before and this is just as good! :)

    The video camera just when through the constant switching on/off, as described by other buyers, after charging up. Unfortunately I had not bothered to open the product until after 30 days had elapsed so couldn't return it to amazon. I was determined to follow it up with Creative Vado but their requests for all sorts of documentation made me give up.

    I'm always wary of leaving a negative review on anything remotely connected with computers on the basis that I am far from "techy" and could be doing something wrong but I'm not happy.

    Reading about the product and reviewing the operating instructions in advance suggested this camera would be intuitive and easy to use - just what I wanted for capturing the odd video clip and downloading to PC or website. Charged the camera as instructed and hit record - all simple enough - but then the picture on the camera screen went all fuzzy, kept flaring and evetually died. So much for HD quality. I then tried to download the fuzzy clip and see if it would look better on the PC screen, again an apparently straightforward procedure. Connected to the PC (running Vista 32 bit) and got a message saying USB device not recognised and nothing more. Kept trying but the camera then decided to shut itself down and after that it wouldn't film again until I had taken the battery out and started the whole set up procedure.

    Looking at the reviews on Amazon suggests that typically the camera does what it should and it may just be that I have a duff one but my son had major problems with the same camera (his 3rd generation version) when it came to hooking up and editing/downloading clips. Sadly I bought the product a few months ago and didn't try using it until recently so too late for the refund I would like. Will see what Creative have to say and if no joy can only hope that Amazon step up and do the right thing.
