Flip Video MinoHD second generation review:

 

Editors' note: You may have heard that Cisco will no longer be producing the Flip camcorder products. However, as long as they're still available on the market, you may want to consider buying one anyway. If so, here are some issues you should consider...

Solid 720p video, particularly for its size; slightly slicker ultraslim yet functional design; large 2-inch LCD; easy to use; integrated lithium ion rechargeable battery; HDMI output; FlipShare software compatible with both Macs and Windows machines.

Fairly pricey; no SD/MMC card expansion slot; no cable included for HD output to HDTVs.

Still one of the nicest models available, the second-generation Flip MinoHD offers a slightly improved design, double the memory, and an HDMI output for the same price that the original MinoHD used to cost.

Solid 720p video, particularly for a camcorder this size; ultraslim yet functional design; easy to use; one-touch video uploading to YouTube, AOL, and MySpace; integrated lithium ion rechargeable battery; FlipShare software is compatible with both Macs...

Somewhat pricey; no SD/MMC card expansion slot; rechargeable battery isn't removable or replaceable; can't output HD to HDTVs.

While it has its flaws and is a bit expensive, the ultrasimple Flip Video MinoHD produces impressive video for a camcorder of its size.

As you can see above, the Pros seriously outweigh the Cons for me. I am a working musician, and I use the MinoHD constantly to catalog my performances and practices/songwriting sessions . I was using my iphone 4 for awhile, but then i discovered this...

-Excellent video quality

-Sound quality tends to peak, with no input control

"Bad Product - won't last long"

 

Been using my flip Mino HD for little less than 1 yr - loved it but now been getting these problems - did the "seceret Reset" as recommended by support- after 2 days it died again, did the reset again and again after few times used it dies again. Lost...
