GoPros quality is sketchy, there are about as many bad reviews as good ones. Mine had a problem with vertical purple lines on the video so I sent it back (to Amazon). The replacement is much better but still has some issues. I don't think the product is ready. Buy it from someplace with a good return policy, sending it back to GoPro is not a good solution from the reviews I have read.
Ok I will make sure they have a good return policy. Thanks for the heads up and info.

ronfin is right about micro SD card issues. What I found was an article, can't remember where I saw this, that mentioned formatting your SD cards for GoPro use. What is suggested, and this has worked for me, was to ONLY format your SD card using the GoPro camera. Something about the file system format. It also stated that reformatting your GoPro's SD card on a computer can make the card unrecognizable to your GoPro. I have only formatted my GoPro's SD cards using the camera. I also seldom remove the SD card from the camera, downloading the video and pics via the included usb cable. So far I have had no problems and I use my camera for tons of stuff.
Good rule of thumb like many have mentioned: do your research first. GoPro is an excellent camera for it's intended use. It will not do well in low light or over extremely large distances. It is not going to be your only video camera.
Hope this helps.
