Pure Digital Flip SlideHD Camcorder Review

Little-improved performance, but an innovative interface and new sliding LCD touchscreen.

$10.89 at Amazon


The Flip SlideHD (MSRP $279) is the newest member of Pure Digital's burgeoning family of ultracompact camcorders. From a performance perspective, the SlideHD doesn't offer much of an improvement over previous models—but the camcorder features an innovative playback interface and a new slideable LCD touchscreen that really give the SlideHD some unique characteristics.
