Manufacturer Alert: We have resolved an issue that some Amazon.com customers experienced previously, in which a small percentage of Flip MinoHD Camcorders experienced difficulty connecting to USB ports in certain computers. This was not a problem with the camcorder itself, but rather the result of a tight fit between the MinoHD's USB arm and the USB ports in these computers. MinoHD 2nd Generation Camcorder units currently available for sale by Amazon.com should not experience any "tight-fit" problem when connecting the camcorder’s USB arm to a computer. If you are experiencing this issue on a camcorder purchased previously, please contact Flip Video Customer Support at 888-222-6689, and a representative will be able to further assist.

The Flip's USB connector does not connect with the Macbooks!

I emailed their customer support stating my issue, and their answer was for me to send it back and they'd replace it in 3-4 weeks.

Color Name: Brushed Metal
Update: Since my review the Flip Mino has been greatly improved. It now works and plugs in perfectly to my Mac and has stereo sound. For it's small size, that's a good thing.

Now, on to the original review:

If I'm going to spend more than a hundred bucks on an item or somewhere around there, I do extensive research first to know I got the best bang-for-the-buck and, consequently, dodge any potential future buyer's remorse.

I've realized that the time I spend doing my product comparisons is often time that others don't have so I may as well share what I can.

I'll start by saying that you'll see my "Verified Amazon Purchase" on the Flip HD Ultra Camcorder review because, obviously, that's the one I wound up buying and I'll share with you why. But what I like in a camcorder may not suit your own needs so I'll break it down and let you decide what's best for you via what I found out:

Here are the pocket camcorders I compared:

*Flip UltraHD (will be referred to as "F")
*Flip Mino HD 2nd generation (Will be referred to as "M")
*Creative Labs Vado HD 8 GB 2nd generation (Will be referred to as "CL")
*Kodak Zi6 Pocket HD (Will be referred to as "K")

*There are notes on the RCA Small Wonder at the bottom. Because that's not an HD camera, I didn't include it.

Why HD cameras only? Brighter colors and better images, wider images

HD SHOOTING TIME:
F: 120 minutes.

Color Name: Brushed Metal
This Flip MinoHD camcorder is amazing-- the ideal thing for any family hoping to videotape the kids, friends, events, etc. First of all, it's completely idiot proof: when you get the box, there is absolutely no assembly required. Your first guess about which buttons are the power switch, record button, and USB connector release will be correct; great intuitive design. The device looks and feels great (as other reviewers have mentioned) and easily fits in your hand comfortably for long periods of time (unlike my blackberry). It turns on and off instantly (unlike my home computer or cell phone) so you don't have to wait long to start recording that precious, fleeting moment.

The screen is a bit larger than the previous Flip Mino, but that's not a big deal. Image quality is better than ever, and not too shaky/bouncy. The USB connector is about the same-- still very convenient, easy to connect, and you don't have to go running to find any special USB connector cable (like my old digital camera). The audio is surprisingly good, picking up faint background sounds that I hadn't even noticed at the time of recording and picking up simultaneous music and voices, near and far, with great quality. The 2-hour battery life is more than I ever use, so it's great, but I figure people who are videotaping entire concerts or watching grass grow might complain. Honestly I haven't made use of the HD resolution, but I'm sure that will be fantastic when I start making my own rainforest nature shows. In the meantime, the HD quality is better than anything I'll ever need. By the way, I know other reviewers have said they can make the camcorder freeze up by zooming in or out during recording, but mine works fine even when I do that. (I purposely tried to freeze it, but couldn't.

348 of 375 people found the following review helpful By Sidney on January 10, 2010
Color Name: Brushed Metal
Length: 1:55 Mins
We bought this camera because we lost our first generation Flip MinoHD, which we loved. I'm sad to report that the USB issues mentioned by countless others are real, and I decided it was worth posting a video that clearly shows the extent of the issue so as to help convince others not to waste their money. This simply doesn't work with Macs, and as you can see from this video it also doesn't work with an Acer Aspire One netbook (~20% of all netbooks currently being shipped). This is a fundamental flaw with the product and is completely inexcusable.

UPDATE 4/19/2010
It seems likely that Cisco has attempted to resolve this issue in the lots now leaving their manufacturing facility. Indeed, there was for a few days a carefully worded "we know this is an issue, but don't want to get in too much trouble, so we'll only partially acknowledge the problem" notice at the top of this page informing consumers of USB connectivity problems "in a small percentage of cases." That Amazon.com has removed this notice is, I suppose, heartening and suggests that it may have been corrected. That being said, there still appears to be a number of recent reviews complaining of USB connectivity issues. These may be from older lots/the sale of existing inventory, or items that are acquired from sellers other than Amazon.com. It seems there is a good chance that you will NOT have USB connectivity issues if you are receiving a recently-manufactured device. However, if you get one that was made prior to the correction of this issue, know that you may have connectivity problem. You might also want to inquire as to whether or not you would be required to pay return shipping charges if it doesn't connect. I may even go out and buy another one of these devices to see if the issue has, in fact, been resolved. If I do this, I'll post an updated video.
