Pros No Pros, camera does not work.
Cons I bought this product hoping it would be a tiny HD video camera, but for the limited features it has to offer, it is actually quite large (about the size of a large cell phone) and feels quite cheaply made.
SummaryI received my brand new Flip Mino yesterday, and it will not turn on or charge. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, IT IS A PIECE OF GARBAGE.

Pros It's a solidly designed product. Well priced. Like the quality though it can be beat. Has a new wide angle lens. Has casing for wet weather. It's small, very light, easy to take out anywhere. Mounts to a bike or a helmet if you want.
Cons the camera weighs more than the support a usb arm can provide. It's a little SLOW TO BOOT UP - not exactly point and shoot - it still takes a few seconds. No flash. No external memory.
Summary I do wish the quality were a bit better. It's great and all - I'm amazed by it - this tiem next year we'll all have some new technology anyway - so it's great for right now - it's an impulsive product for impulsive people looking to entertain themselves and other, much like me, so go out and buy one. You'll be happy and then the world will have more great videos to laugh at.
Pros The Flip Mino is a nice size and has a cheap price if you look around.
Cons Their customer service sucks but if you purchase it from Avon, they have a 100% satisfaction return policy on products.
Summary I love this little camcorder but I wished I had waited to buy it until I started carrying it with Avon. It's only $89.00 right now with free shipping and handling. www.youravon.com/roverton
I love being able to plug it into my computer and send videos to my family all over the country. I can also burn the movies of my son straight to disc and give them away for cheap gifts. It sure beats using my blackberry for short movies with much better graphics and longer recording times.
Pros nothing because it's dead
Summary CAUTION-- if your thinking about buying this product-- STOP NOW!!!! I purchased the camera when it first came out (less then a year ago) and now it's dead. I called tech support and the only offer a 90 day warranty and that's it. There is no repair service or anything for the product. So you are stuck with a piece of junk plastic. If you don't want to have a headache, DON'T BUY!!!!!!!!!!
Pros It worked well 3 times
Cons It stopped charging after the third time I used it.
Summary The mino stopped charging after the third use! contacted tech support for mino and was directed to return the mino. They mailed it back and said "SORRY" avoid this company like the plague! It's worse than h1 n1 if you ask me! What a waste of money!
