GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition Camera CHDHX-302
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Pretty disappointed so far 08/08/2014

This review is from: GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition Camera CHDHX-302

Pros: I was very excited to get a GoPro as I wanted a small camera to take places and also use for recording guitar lessons, being able to attach it to the headstock of a guitar and get a shot down the guitar fretboard.

The camera is small. And when you order accessories, it seems everyone sends you lots of clear cases to put the camera into.

The video quality is very good, although the outer edges are distorted. This may be nice on a surf video, but if you're documenting anything for accuracy, it will leave you disappointed.

The price of the camera itself is good. It's all the accessories you need to buy to make it useful that adds up.

Cons: Here's where I have issues with the GoPro. Right off the bat, there is no viewfinder so if you want to see what you're recording you need to purchase the optional viewfinder. Ka-ching!

The camera operates VERY HOT. You will not want to hold it in your hands, let alone stick it in your pocket without a plastic cover. Thus, you must put it in a plastic cover (included with camera), but that adds a lot of bulk to the camera, so now it doesn't fit in my pocket. So for handheld, discreet filming, this isn't a good choice. The old CISCO cameras, FLIP, ere really good at tossing in a pocket and staying cool, but they are not available anymore.

The distortion on the edge of the image is very noticeable. If you are a picture fanatic like me, this will likely bother you.

The camera takes some getting used to to operate. And the buttons to film are so sensitive I have filmed the inside of my jacket or pocket many times, arriving to a place I want to film only to find that the battery is dead and the Micro SD card is filled.

Accessories. To get the real value of the camera you must buy accessories. Plan on purchasing a viewfinder, a spare battery, at least two clips, a battery charger, and then a case to put all these accessories in. Ka-Ching!

The sound is not great and if you put the optional viewfinder and case on it, the sound is downright terrible.

Other Thoughts: So close but so far. I can see mounting this to a bike, surfboard, or other outdoor, action type object and I have seen many great videos shot with a GoPro. It just didn't do it for me.

GeChic On-Lap 1301 13.3” Portable and USB powered Thin, Light, and Plug & Play LCD Monitor
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a product that makes you ask, "why didn't I think of that?" Simply attached to your laptop cover and it is available to flip open and act as a second or dual monitor.

I was excited about the prospect of using a second monitor, especially when working in Excel or Photoshop, but I found another great feature which is to keep screen on the back of the laptop screen so you can share what's on screen with people sitting across from you.

The GeChic (ok, weird name, but great product) is lightweight and doesn't impact the performance of my laptop in any way.

I wish I had thought of it. Now that someone has, I ask myself, how'd I get by without this? It's brilliant.

Cons: None that I have found. Works as advertised.
