"Solid 720p video, particularly for a camcorder this size; ultraslim yet functional design; easy to use; one-touch video uploading to YouTube, AOL, and MySpace; integrated lithium ion rechargeable battery; FlipShare software is compatible with both Macs and Windows machines."
"Somewhat pricey; no SD/MMC card expansion slot; rechargeable battery isn't removable or replaceable; can't output HD to HDTVs."
"While it has its flaws and is a bit expensive, the ultrasimple Flip Video MinoHD produces impressive video for a camcorder of its size."

I paid $31 for this gently used very compact Flip camera on eBay, not knowing if I would run into any problems with it. I've never owned a Mino before. But so far I just LOVE it. It's cute, weighs a lot less than the other Flips and takes up a lot less hand space, and of course the Flip high sound and picture quality is absolutely there. I love Flip Ultras and HDs primarily because the sound quality is exceptional and I do A LOT OF live music recordings for my YouTube channel. This particular Mino model records only 60 minutes so I have some bids out for the 120 minute model. I swear by these Flips; they're worth their weight in gold. If you can get one in your price range, do it.
Easy to use, zoom works well. Although I still cannot get my videos to upload to facebook for some reason, I can get them on my computer. Flipshare software is fun to use. Wish I would have bought the 2 hour flip!
Definitely a camcorder that's good when you're on the go. This is the Flip Mino. I also have the Flip Ultra and honestly the Ultra is better when it comes to picture quality. For some reason, the white balance is a little off for the Mino (meaning everything's a bit too bright). The Mino that I have can record an hour, which is fine just for a night out with friends but not enough for a whole vacation. The size of the Mino is a big plus but overall, it's an okay camera.
Most people today criticize the flip as being outdated, obsolete, unnecessary because modern smart phones can shoot video as well or better than the Flip. While they may have valid arguments I still love the Flip despite its dated short comings. The videos are of a decent quality, are easy to upload, FlipShare software is very easy to use for both archiving and sharing via email or the FlipShare archive site. I video my son's basketball games and share them via email. While his teammate's parents record games as well with high def. camcorders and also upload videos for sharing the means of sharing are much more difficult and hog a lot more disk space while I do admit the picture quality is superior to the Flip. Their YouTube postings lack some of the features that FlipShare offers. Unfortunately, Flip is being discontinued and FlipShare will be going away soon so I will have to migrate to YouTube.
Well, I won't say this is the best mini camcorder out there, but this isn't the worst one either. It is really good in it's looks - it is sleek and small and easy to carry around. The keys and operations are pretty simple and easy to understand as well. The picture and sound quality can be improved, but for this price, it is indeed a real good deal. You can take it to parties or quick meet-ups and take short videos quickly.
