Actually micro SD's are stinking cheap now. I picked up a 16gb class 6 for $11 off Amazon. From what I have seen the speeds of the class 10 SD's aren't very accurate and Class 6 and sometimes class 4 cards perform as well or better. Still, you can get a class 10 32gb card for twenty some bucks. Here is the one I bought, it's up a couple bucks now.. http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-micr...1479152&sr=1-4

I've owned a Contour GPS, Hero2 and Hero3 Black. I'm not sure about the silver but at the very least the Black can process low light conditions and colours much much better than the Hero2. Also 1080P at 60FPS looks amazing and allows better slow-mo with twixtor and optical flow.

nice review thanks,

so here it is, i bought one from bestbuy coz i needed one fast for this weekend for 69.99 surely this is overly expensive they said price is gonna come down to 30 this sunday so i am gonna go back and return it get my 30 dollars back, on newegg it's also 30 bucks so that should be fine.

i got the sandisk ultra 32gb btw with the one that comes with adapter of course

IMO Black Edition is the only one worth getting. Silver is the same as the Hero 2 just smaller/lighter. If you want the silver you can prob just find a Hero 2 for real cheap now.

Black Edition can record:

720p at 120fps
1080p at 60fps
2.7k at 30fps

Silver/Hero 2:

720p at 60fps
1080p at 30fps (30fps is pretty useless in recording anything with motion in my experience)

And the Black Edition comes with the Wifi remote which is $80 itself so that alone makes it worth getting for.

black has 12mp and better lens so if you're considering these yes it's better
but remote alone is not a reason to get the black over silver especially if you are an iphone user, with the gopro app I already have a remote controller
i also got the silver for 250 brand new from craigslist, I really think i got a good deal

What I was trying to say that the differnece in recording performance and quality was worth the extra $100, and then they throw in a $80 remote and make it even sweeter.

GJ on the deal man, I ended up getting a sick deal myself lol
