Better quality than I was expecting for such a small camcorder. Easy to plug and play. Very easy to use although you must hold the camera steady to get a decent picture. A lot of my friends now want one. Don't spill your coffee on it as I did - the silver edging went black. It also scratches really easily. Really pleased with this as I was considering getting a full size camcorder, but I can just slip this one into my pocket, it's smaller than my Blackberry!

 Compact, Sleek, Excellent!

The Flip Mino HD is a brilliant device for just about anyone that is into multimedia. Its lightweight-yet-sturdy design is embellished with it's attractive shiny finish. It's perfect for anyone that just loves their gadgets!

The picture quality is stunning for something this size and price. True HD pictures (720) that can be watched on the biggest of LCD/Plasma TV's out there with no degredation.

Use of the device is basically a one-button affair. Start recording, Stop recording ... and it really does boot up in the 2 seconds quoted in the main article! That's as quick, if not quicker than a lot of digital cameras out there ...

One of my favourite functions is built into the software package that comes with the camera. Once you have captured your HD video, you can save snapshots at the same HD resolution at the click of your mouse. This is a great function for me as I like to have video as well as still images of events. This allows me to get both while only having to operate one camera. The snapshot quality isn't what you'd get from a high quality digital camera, but it is certainly more than enough for your facebook/myspace/flickr etc needs.

Sound quality is about what you'd expect from any digital camera. Can be hissy at low levels, but copes quite well with high volume stuff like live music. A mic line in would have been great, but I assume it was left off to keep price down and to keep in line with the portability of the unit. It is smaller in length and width than an iPhone, and a few mm's bigger in depth.

In this quality, size and price range, the Flip Mino HD really is the best out there.

 Excellent, easy to use

My wife and I borrowed a friend's Flip over the weekend to record some music performances (with permission !). The ambient noise in the club was quite high and the sound set up was not brilliant but despite this the recorded sound was of good quality. Playback via the onboard speakers suggested that there was distortion but once the clips were loaded onto our PC the playback quality was fine.

We will be buying one in the next week or so.
