Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

I would rate this piece of **** 0/5 stars if i could.

Size of screen, color

quality, crackly picture, colors aren't the true colors (I recorded stuff on the TV, and the color was TERRIBLE)

First off be sure to charge the battery correctly. By this I mean remove the SDHC Memory cards prior to charging the battery. Plug the miniUSB plug in to the correct spot. When the battery is charging the orange light flickers. I bought a 32GB SDHC...

I am shocked that so many people have had so many problems with this camera. I bought mine over 10 months ago, because my Sony Handicam kicked the bucket, and I only recently had any kind of complaint about it. It takes great, crisp video and stills,...

I have to agree with the negative reviews. I bought this camera on sale at Radio Shack on a whim. After bringing it home I checked out the online reviews which agreed with what I found after using it for two days. It reverts to default settings...

One star is over rating the camera. It has no lense cap so be careful with it. It requires their software to get the video off the camera. The big problem is that the 1080p is a lie unless you have the perfect lighting or are outside the camera is...

Don't buy it! It sucks the HD is nice but I can't sync with any PC the encodings wrong and all the timestamps are messed up. It deleted over 3000 of my personal pictures when I put a memory card in (I was going to use it to show family members on the...
