There’s no doubt the SlideHD is a cool gadget with a fun and innovative design, and FlipShare is a great piece of software that complements the device nicely. In terms of video quality and operation, the SlideHD is not much different from the UltraHD and MinoHD, which might please Flip fans, but leaves me wanting more, especially considering its $280 launch price.
The SlideHD simply does not offer enough to recommend when compared to older and less expensive Flips, as well as competing pocket camcorders that shoot at higher resolutions, have more features, and come packaged with extra cables and goodies.
- Innovative and fun playback design
- Great FlipShare software
- Easy to operate
- Barebones camera with no packaged extras, like an HDMI cable
- Same video quality as previous models
- Expensive ($280 MSRP)
- Recording angle significantly exceeds the display size
