Its ok

 

They work for what I got them for shooting video outside, car shows ect. I bought 2 of them gave one to my father its very easy to use if my no tech (70+ years old)Dad can use it. I stuck in each a 8Gb SD card and I think I can shoot 8 hours of video

Takes very nice outside videos and pictures the sound is pretty good when shooting videos ; Easy to use

not worth a dime for inside pictures or video

Customer Service?

 

Have been buying from New Egg for a long time, 8 plus years. I've always been very loyal and pushed people in NewEggs direction. Have always had great customer service.....until today. Berated for saying my issue hasn't been resolved yet after speaking...

Shipped what they said they would. Price

DOA. RMA'd for replacementand shipped back bad unit the Monday after Christmas. Zero response

joke

 

I really like the color and it being able to take stills... some other flip video camcorders don't even have that picture-taking capability!

The color, so pretty

I didn't even open the product and use it. Once the [negative] reviews started pouring in, I just filed an RMA to get a refund. SO SAD, my $10 for shipping it back. This is what I get for rushing to purchase a BlackFriday deal with no reviews. Lalalalal

Aluratek ADVC01F Red 5.0 MP CMOS 2.0" LCD 8x Digital Digital Video Camcorder

 

I got the for $40 and it was for my 7 year old niece, she loves it, but even for $70 not much out there has usb and SD, that has 5mp

Great price for what you get. nice size, works well outdoors, SD, usb

not so good indoors, the zoom doesnt focus

Great for kids...but not much more

 

Good for young kids to play around with making their own videos. But don't expect anything fancy (for this price why would you)?

Cheap stocking stuffer for the young ones (10 or under). Light weight, no USB cable to worry about

Feels a bit cheap. Dark photos indoors (but works fine outside ONCE YOU TAKE THE PLASTIC OFF THE LENS). Had a problem with one of the two I purchased being defective and had to send it back. Waiting on the replacement

Not worth to mention

 

Although it was not only unsatisfying product I purchased from Newegg, it was the only product I have returned in my 3yrs Newegg history, and I hope it stays as only product. Thanks to Newegg did not give me trouble.

Got the refund

Had to pay $10 for shipping back

BAD DECISION

 

Price and that is about all

No Flash, poor picture quality ; Purhased as a stocking stuffer and was not worth the dissapointment ; Cannot be used in-doors ; I am returning to Newegg

stay far far away

 

After I got some time and thoroughly tested this I decided to give a review, this thing is junk. The camera states that it can do 5 to 12mp pictures but you'll be lucky to get 1mp out of it consistently. No matter what settings I used or exposure level...

cheap price

MP are incredibly overinflated ; Video and pictures are dark no matter what ; Quality is never the same ; Eats up batteries ; Feels cheap

This thing was a piece of junk. It would freeze every 15 seconds. Had to return it and of course I get stuck paying for the shipping

somewhat decent camera

 

Even in a bright room this camera still takes dark pictures and you have to hold it absolutely still. At the 5mp setting the pictures looked the same as my 1.3mp camera on my phone, 12mp starts to look closer to 5. The button to take a picture or start...

Small, takes AA batteries and SD cards, flip out usb

no flash or image stabilization, megapixels are overly exaggerated, button to take picture or start in weird place
