Pros Outstanding video and sound
Cons Poorly designed software
Summary FlipVideo gives better sound and video than my $800 Sony Camcoreder, and it is very easy to use!
My problem is with the FlipVideo software, latest update, on my new laptop running VISTA Home. It won't allow the "safely remove" function to work after the software is closed. The second time I tried the "Safely Remove" function on VISTA I got a BSOD!!! I have to shut the computer off in order to be able to safely remove the device from the USB port.
All is not lost, however. I can access movies on my FlipVideo device by plugging it into my laptop running PCLinuxOS 2008 MiniMe, and using software that comes with it. "Safely Remove" works well on my Linux laptop.

Pros It is small, very easy yo use, battery lasts long good audio and video quality for a great price.
Cons The only con i could find really is the fact that you can only record 60 min... then you have to upload to the comp to delete or delete manually but then you loose your previous video.
Summary There is virtually no set up (if you connect to mac, idk about pc) just plug in and upload... then you're done, no software installation needed. Built in "Flip" put USB is a HUGE plus! I actually like the built in battery... I hate buying batteries all the time and i find they do not last as ling as a built in rechargeable battery. Its small and very easy to use...All in all I love this cam!!
Pros great A/V quality,pretty good software, great design
Cons very easy to get finger printed,
