Quality Posts (a few posts we stumbled upon that look particularly helpful to others):

lannywa found a review, and quick.

jqubed links to some sort of interesting diary/review.

GeorgeWBush took the responsibility of finding more detailed specs, though obob points out it’s of the h10 model and not this h12.

rizzydoo discovers that this item is not Mac-compatible.

THX113ATE discusses screen resolution and what “DVD quality” really means.

BrahmaBull links to the review that convinced him to buy, which includes sample pics.

looks like a neat product

that’s a pretty good price, too.

…but I need more MEGAPIXELS.

“The MobiDV’s unique 230° rotating lens design lets you take pictures at all kinds of awkward angles, making it easy to get footage from behind cover, or inside snake pits, or of your own anus.”

“or of your own anus.”

Does this sound like a preview of this Friday’s contest to anyone else?

I love it when woot sneaks in these little contest hints!

hmmm looks decent

It looks sweet… hey… Where’d my money go!!! shoot… looks like I’m sitting this one out… that is seriously purty sweet looking…

Looks Cool

What the heck is that cat on there for?

its beeeeeaaaaauuuuutttiiiffuuulllll count me in on one

should sell out quickly.

Thinking about it…Geesh that Cat is Creepy

I should buy this just because of happycat.

Hmm, I might be tempted if I hadn’t just hacked a $25 CVS “disposable” camcorder to do essentially the same thing.

The only advantage this this has is flash and a swivel lens.

looks good ! better than yestardays at least

…or you could just use a camera phone.

HAPPY CAT. I knew there was a goon involved in this operation somewhere. OMG DO YOU GUYZ HAVE STAIRS IN YOUR HOUSE???

Nice, but I’ll pass.

Wow this is something new for woot…

I dont know what to make of it.

Any review of this??? I have been in the market
for a digital camcorder.

Not in the market for a camcorder, but looks neat.
