2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for - questionable quality, 11 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked for a few months after which, despite not being subject to heavy use in any, keys started falling off and now the unit will not charge. Leave it connected and it stops charging after 2 minutes. Turn it on and it goes off almost immediately. Now consigned to the bin, you get what you pay for!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive and provides nothing extra, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought 4 expert shields in the past, for an iPad Air, iPad mini and 2 x for Fuji xPro 1 Cameras. the product is fine but offers nothing more than any other screen protector and are no less likely to be applied without bubbles in the screen. the one I applied to the iPad mini in fact failed to apply cleanly to the top right area despite being VERY careful to ensure clean mating surfaces.

In this event I ended up with a screen no better than any other and paid a heavy price for the product. Find the cheaper versions they are just as good and considerably less expensive.

2 DAYS LATER. Following the initial disaster I contacted the company, give them their due they sent another out immediately. This one worked OK and solved the problem. Can't fault the product or the customer service but it still remains that the item is very expensive in comparison.
The screen protector itself is slightly thicker than others available and this most probably provides for the extra protection and the lifetime guarantee. You have to ensure a completely clean environment, any particles transient in the air will make for your iPad screen and the protector like a bullet from a gun. The supplier suggests in the instructions that you might do it in a damp bathroom where the dust should have settled which in itself says something about the scale of the problem.
Being a thicker screen protector actually makes the process of pushing out small bubbles during fitment more difficult, peeling the first cover off a little at a time is the only way and take plenty of time, rush and you will surely ruin it.
In the early days of the iPad 2 I purchased screen protectors in a pack of 5 for less money, the first installation is still on the device and the other 4 sitting in a drawer.
Good product, good customer service but it all relies on your being able to fit it OK and then there is the high price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Does the job but no spares, 18 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had this torch for just over 18 months now, have not used it much so was disappointed when the switch failed. The torch can be held in the on position but now has a mind of its own as I can go back to it hours later to find it on allbeit at a low intensity. The switch is part of the battery holder and there appears to be no spare parts available for it.
Its now destined for the bin and I will not buy another LED Lenser torch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Descriptive and well written, 25 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With such a dearth of written material on what is becoming such a popular camera, this publication is informative and useful. Some issues have been resolved in subsequent software updates. Worth purchasing to get the best out of the technology available from this camera.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Product but likely to fail!, 29 Dec. 2012
Had mine for three weeks when it stopped working, would not turn on. When I checked the forums I found loads of customers who had the same problems, common theme in all cases being that none had found a resolution or help from GoPro.

1.0 out of 5 stars Check out the forums to learn of all the problems with this camera, appalling support., 29 Dec. 2012
Google 'GoPro will not turn on' and "get satisfaction" web site, there are a lot of very unhappy people out there with defective products.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be seduced check it out first, 10 Dec. 2012
It goes like this you want the product and you are swayed by the glowing reviews. But before you press the purchase button check out the on-line forums first, as has been said elsewhere 'a good product but God help you if it goes wrong". I bought the Hero 3 model but I suffered problems which had unbeknown to me existed and still does with the Hero 2 as well. Bought it from a local cycle shop on 2nd November and by the 7th December it had been returned. I had used it about 6 or 7 times during my brief ownership and it all started when the unit turned itself off after about an hour of recording.

With various attempts of removing the battery and the Micro SD Card I got it to work again but it turned itself off again after ten minutes, got it home and connected it to the laptop only to find the unit was no longer recognised as an external drive, again with the removal of the battery and card I managed to get some life out of it and left it on change, making sure the battery was FULLY charged. Out a day later and the same thing happened, after an hour turned itself off. I went through the same procedure and got it going again, it stopped again this time in about one and half minutes, did it again and it turned itself off again in a little over thirty seconds. From that point onwards the unit was completely lifeless, no amount of 'playing' with it brought the unit back to life.

I searched the web to find out if anyone else had this problem only to find it by no means isolated, people were even posting You Tube videos demonstrating the same problem with both the Hero 2 and 3. I found a plethora of issues with some seriously disgruntled owners complaining amongst other things the apparent diabolical service from GoPro Support. If you check the support page you will notice that, for the large amount of issues posted and complaints made, there is very little offering from GoPro in support postings.

What did I do, took it back and sought a refund on the basis that I have no trust in the unit and the company. From the complaints made it seems that GoPro need to learn a lesson in customer service and satisfaction and perhaps if they get enough of their units thrown back at them they may do something about it. Gave this one star for the quality and versatility of the mounts etc. As for the camera it was a complete failure so no stars at all !

Update 16th December 2012

Checked more forums and You Tube found a particularly relevant You Tube video "GoPro Camera = 90% Great + 10% CRAP!!!", check it out.

Just find it amazing that GoPro still seem to be getting away with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lasted less than a week, 29 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item arrived and smaller than expected but did the job more or less, however it is made of brittle plastic and in less than a week it broke at a key point and the two parts came apart, had not been misused and not even place on a keyring. Due to the location of the break the two parts would not stay together and thus ended up in the bin.

Do not buy this on the basis that you only get what you pay for and in this case not even that.
