Got 2 from staples. Very good for this price. It is easy to use, easy to replace battery and SD card and small size. AVI format is good for almost every PC without any other code-decode media player, you can watch directly. Anyway, it is good for a "dummy" user with such price.

At Walgreens online, I purchased what is a different 'brand' called "Living Solutions" that appears exactly the same as the Cobra Digital Camera.
I got it on sale at Walgreens for even less, but for an inexpensive video camera, it is a good deal (at $49).
Pro: LOW COST
SO SIMPLE A CHILD COULD USE IT
DECENT QUALITY IMAGES
TOOK A 4GB MEMORY CARD AND WORKS FOR 1 AND A HALF HOURS OR MORE IN AVI FORMAT
HAS A DECENT SIZE SCREEN AND SPEAKER FOR IMMEDIATE VIEWING
Con: VERY CHEAP PRODUCT - DON'T EXPECT QUALITY/DURABILITY (but it's ok).
AA BATTERIES RUN OUT FAST AND THERE IS NO WAY TO POWER IT VIA CHARGING CORD.
ZERO FOCUS/ZOOM/QUALITY OR ANY OTHER OPTIONS. IT'S RECORD AND STOP RECORD. THAT'S IT.
HAS A DECENT SIZE SCREEN WHICH DOES DRAIN THE BATTERIES FAST WITHOUT THE ABILITY TO RECORD W/SCREEN OFF.
It may not be the exact same product under a different 'brand' but I can not see any difference and it works as a very very simple (basic to the extreme) camcorder that takes decent sound videos.
