I got one of these 6 months ago. It comes from China. It never worked properly. The battery had a 10 minute life. The software is all in Chinese and appears to be virus-ridden -- I still can't get it off my computer.

Still want to buy?

@dyaballikl: I also got one direct from gearsx and the battery never worked. It would seem to charge to ready but as soon as it was disconnected from the charge cord it would immediately power off or never power on. Battery seemed to hold no charge so was worthless. I found instructions online for a reset that helped a lot of people with their problems but this apparently was not my problem. While I thought it would be a neat toy I would not buy again even on the off chance I might get a working one.

Why does it say "Worlds Smallest voice recorder" instead of video recorder? Weird.

@cengland0:
Because the chinese dont care enough to make the descriptions perfect.
I always see a lot of mistakes in packaging and manuals.

save your money! battery will not work for more than 10 minutes. not worth fifty cents.

I had a bad experience with these guys selling trash over a year ago, so I wouldn't touch anything they sell. If you give them bad feedback on their seller feedback site they'll wait about 3 months and contact you asking to to give them a good rating. Sorry once3 a junk dealer always a junk dealer!

@cajun01: No apology needed to anyone, even them, they sold you junk, they deserve a bad rep. Seems anything cheap and electronic will NOT work properly, only a matter of time till everyone learns, and the sooner the better. I for one am sick of cheap crap that doesn't work, so have vowed to myself to purge my crap-buying-ways.

Got one of these on a previous deal. They're fun to play with. Go ahead and put one in a model rocket, or an RC car, or a kite... You get some fun video back.

@durumcan: I checked your link, and something is off in your calculations, or Gearxs has changed in the last hour.

As I calculate it, the Woot deal is only 2 cents more (incl. 8Gb and shipping) than the Gearxs equivalent.

AND... it shows right here on this same page (above) that you CAN order it with 4/8/16 Gb options.

I purchased 2 of these from GearsXS and they're barely worth the $20... Not a rip-off, but not a killer deal.

Mine sits on a shelf and I'll probably toss it. The status lights are deep inside and impossible to see - you can never tell what mode its in and if its actually recording.

gearxs is hands-down the single worst online retailer I've dealt with in the last decade. If you leave them negative feedback, they'll refuse to work with you any further. Over the last year I've seen dozens of other posts indicating items with "free shipping" arrive POSTAGE DUE.

Was ready to buy but looks like people have had some real problems with the product and this vendor.. I will look elsewhare..This worst seller I've delt with so far is Dailysteals

Terrible terrible product. Won't stay on for more than half a minute after about a day of use. Even then it only recorded very short clips at a time even after trying different modes.

@robbs42: Ha, that's actually pretty funny. I watched the review video and it was really bad. The resolution is low and the audio is even worse. It might be nice to send up in a helicopter or something like that but I wouldn't use it as a camcorder or as a webcam.

I have one of these from a previous deal as well. Both of mine work fine - no complaints.

@bendsnow: LOL, it's a "mirco" camera with a "mirco" SD card!

vote-for0vote-against

Not a fantastic deal. It is only $1.73 more with a 8gb card and shipping at http://www.gearxs.com/GearXs-Mini-DV-MD80-DVR-Video-Camera and they give you the option to choose different capacity cards or no card at all.

IMO, freedom of choice is worth more than $1.73. But what do I know.

@cengland0: Probably because the video quality isn't usable. It's better off as a voice recorder.
