Summary Box: Review of Flip SlideHD camera
THE PRODUCT: The $280 Flip SlideHD pocket camcorder from Cisco, which offers improved playback while retaining the simplicity that made the original Flip Video model a hit.
WHAT’S NEW: A touch screen that slides into an upright position, and a headphone jack for watching video without disturbing others.
CHEAPER IS BETTER: The SlideHD has finicky touch controls and a higher price than earlier models, including the $200 Flip UltraHD and the $230 Flip MinoHD.
