Hardware Review ( Aiptek MPVR Digital Camcorder )

My cousin bought this camcorder during the Thanksgiving sale at Target and I must say that this camcorder is not worth shit. He paid $99 dollars for this thing, and it isn't worth a dime of it. Let me just get started here. The camera, itself, looks pretty nice. Small in design, silver, and very classy. But looks, as people say, don't matter. He popped in his SD card ( needed to save video, music, photos, etc. ) and battery then he turned it on. The screen on this is about 1.5 inches or so, with decent colors. He finally hit record and taped a bit of us talking, turned off record, and went to playback. We watched the video and I must say it was god awful in almost every way. The picture was grainy, the talking was off the the lip movement, the video was choppy, it looks just terrible. Granted it was in low lighting, but this is unacceptable even for $99. I guess when something is this cheap, it's way too good to be true. Save your money up for a better known brand, or just a get to know what you're buying before you buy it. Stay away from this camcorder at all costs... it is just that bad.

Not Recommended.
