2 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed

Pros: Small size, turns on quick, supposedly waterproof. Use this in places you wouldn't take videos from a cell phone.

Cons: This may shoot at 1080p but it isn't crisp at all. Viewing on an lcd panel 20" or larger you will notice edges are blurry.

Other Thoughts: Got tired of waiting for the boat from China to deliver the Panasonic HX-WA3 so I bought this as a refurb for $50 along with a Samsung 16gb class 10 micro sd card.

My other camcorder is a Panasonic HC v700. Obviously the Panny knocks the socks off the small Samsung. I plan to use this near water, i.e. at the lake, ocean, pool, etc.. Will most likely shoot at 720p so I can record over 4 hours of video versus over 2 shooting 1080p.

Guess a person can't go wrong for $50 but my cell phone shoots better video. Just do a search on YouTube and you can see how poor the quality is.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat gift overall

Pros: Very durable. I understood this product to be waterproof . The gift recipient was excited to find that it also takes underwater pictures!

Cons: Refurbished did not include a charging adapter.

Other Thoughts: For Quality price and fast free shipping a great deal even without an included adapter.

4 out of 5 eggsFor what it's worth

Pros: I got this Samsung W300 in a Shell Shocker Deal for 50 bucks. From the reviews, I did not expect a great camera. I needed this camera for work and do not need the latest greatest video available. I take vids and pics of peoples roofs and go through the images with them when I come down the ladder. This camera fit the bill perfectly for the price. For the price I paid, it just may be a great deal.

The video quality is OK, but a little jumpy. Pictures are also less than great. But the camera itself operates very well. Quick to turn on and ready for use, The stabilization is pretty good and it worked well in low light conditions.

I used it to record a live band in a dark room and the vids were actually pretty good for the conditions. Audio was way below par, but that was expected at the retail price point. But for 50 bucks and free shipping, I am a happy camper.

Cons: Again, I don't feel there are any cons for the $50 I paid. I gave only 4 stars because the image quality is not the best in sub $200 cameras. Didn't want to boost the rating too much.

Other Thoughts: For a work camera, the water proof, dust proof and shock resistant build is excellent. I have had a Samsung Rugby water resistant phone for years. It has been through the washer twice, it is all dented and beat up, and it still works like a charm. I did have to buy a battery the last time it got washed.
