Not ready for prime time,
This review is from: Flip MinoHD Video Camera - Black, 8 GB, 2 Hours (3rd Generation) (Camera)
Got this for Xmas last year and it has never worked properly. Overnight charging with a full battery indicator gave me about an hour's max of recording time, so the unit seems to lack the power reserve to utilize the 8GB of memory.
I prefer to use my more reliable and versatile Lumix still camera to shoot video, so I didn't use this Mino much. But it has freezed up from low battery most every time I've used it and has charging issues, despite my buying the OEM power adapter (computer USB charging never worked as the Mino requires more than the customary amperage from my laptop's USB ports).
Great design, great concept, but poor engineering and power management make this thing a very sexy paperweight.
