I am returning it, for a refund.
Tim Hamilton
We charged them up for 12 hours as described in the rather brief "manual" and then tried to turn them on and record a video.

With that said, they are interesting and not completely worthless (so far).

I bought this with two day shipping.
It came as ordered. Awesome.

After unboxing...Well, I do not know where to begin.

1) item clearly was different than the photos.

2) Item listed on amazon says 3.0 mega pixels, manual clearly states 2.0, this is a false listing on amazon.

3) Item clearly has two buttons for recording, the one I received had 4 with mp3 headphones. None of which I ordered and obviously more noticeable and bulky.

4) attempts to ask manufacturer about the microsd slot, does it use microsdhc or is the older type, have gone unanswered. There is no way to tell if it actually takes a 8gb or not.

5) item listed as 30 FPS, manual states 25-30 FPS with no way to adjust that.

6) Resolution listed on amazon is 736 X 480, manual clearly states this is not so. The actual resolution in manual is 640x480.

7)I set it up to charge, blue light came on, hours later blue light is still on, but nothing works at all. Cannot see it in the computer, cannot change 'mode' etc..this item appears dead.

All in all, I feel like I bought an item off ebay from a d-bag seller who lies and cheats. For this price I expected what I bought, not some old fake pair that does not work.

Stay away from this seller and their products. Me? I am starting the dang refund/return process, this is dung.

These glasses are being shipped back to the vendor. The video camera function did not work. When I tried to record a video it only captured the audio for playback. In addition the still shot pictures were not very clear. Also the manual does not conatain any customer service number or warranty information.

I bought two of these glasses as gifts. We charged them up for 12 hours as described in the rather brief "manual" and then tried to turn them on and record a video. Immediately we noticed the buttons hurt our hands when we tried to hold them down for 3 seconds (power on) or 5 seconds (record) according the instructions. Both glasses powered on, but neither went into a recording mode. One of the glasses did not power off at all. We tried doing a reset of both glasses to no avail. The glasses do not work and we are returning them today. It is too bad because they are a fun concept. Perhaps another vendor will eventually get it right but in the meantime ... avoid this product.

What a cool toy/gadget! Until it stopped working after about 2 weeks of respectful use. =(

I've attached a "before and after" video. The before video shows how the video looked before the camera arbitrarily stopped working... The after video shows the hopeless pink and green stripes, which is all it will produce now. I treated the glasses with the greatest care, kept them in their case and never dropped them. They just went flakey on their own.

The battery died while I was using it today. Contacted Amazon for a refund and they will send UPS to pick it up tomorrow.
This is my 4th purchase of this from different vendors and this has the best quality so far. The video and sound qualities were good. Unfortunately, the internal battery did not last long. There should be a way to replace the battery myself in case the warranty expires. Not comfortable if I will recommend this to buy. Another thing, I got this for $86 3 weeks ago and now it is on sale for $57 :(
I might try the i-Kam extreme. Hopefully this will last longer...

bought this product 40 days ago. I have recorded over 20 hours of video since then. In general, it worked fine - record video with audio with OK quality. So it does what it is supposed to, and it's easy to use.
cons: with 4GB memory, you can only record about 1 hour worth of video, which is too short for me. Sometimes the saved video file is corrupted, but my VLC player can fix it.

I purchased this product in August 2011. I tested it out and it seemed to work fine. Two days ago, October 09, I was going to use them and plugged them in to the charger to ensure there was a full battery. Upon plugging the charger, the red light came on as it is supposed to, but almost immediately went out. The blue light remained on however. I attempted to turn the power off several times, but the blue light never went out and the red light never came back on. I tried to record video, but the blue light never blinked as it is supposed to do. I also attempted to take still photos but the blue light remained on solid. The blue light never blinked indicating that a still photo had been taken. The blue light finally went out after the battery was exhausted. I am definitely a dissatisfied customer on this one. wD

I got it in the mail today. Seemed OK, until I charged it. Instructions say to charge for 12 hours prior to use. Felt like it warmed up. But, as I tried to power it on, it died. Battery looks like it wont hold a charge. It is a great idea, but having it in my hand, it seems to made so cheap that it isnt going to handle much, even if it did work. I think it is a great idea and Id love it, but I thikn it is more miss than hit, when it is made so cheaply. I am returning it, for a refund. But I wil watch for some that area made well. So far, all the ones I see (under different names) all seem to be this same cheap set. ;o(

On the bright saide, the Amazon return process seems to be very customer friendly. I think I am out the shipping charge... Sometimes it is best to shop in person.
