    I'm really surprised by how well these sold. They're not really that great.

    Here comes the flood of mediocre (or worse) mtb videos.

    Both are 1080, any difference comes in the conversion of H264 to get it into editing software. Not all conversions are the same.

    An "amazing deal" which I consider what it should be selling for, considering its competition.

    Did you not see that a whole slew of reputable retailers are selling 'em for $150, but with free shipping?

    You can get 10% cashback through one of those cashback afflilate sites by buying it through BackCountry (also for $150, but with the better return policy).

    The mounts available for the GoPro, such as the Chest mount, should be a huge deciding factor. How many ways can you conveniently mount the Contour? Hope you're good at hacking and tacking together ghetto mounts if you want to make an interesting video that has a few more angles to it and doesn't shake like crazy.

    I'd still consider the ContourHD at 150 to be a very good deal. Having used one, I prefer it's profile, angle of view, and controls over the GoPro.

    It's getting even cheaper. 137.49 through Amazon now if you go through "more buying options".

    Anyone having buyers remorse yet?
