Get your self down to Staples before they all go

I picked up this Veho HD video camera yesterday for just 59.00 it retailed at well over 150.00 with the fixings . It comes with remote control 160 degree viewing angle and a battery that lasts 4 hours, also a 4GB micro SD card and lots of fixing brackets . I invested in the waterproof case from the website its as good as a Go Pro

Should go well with my Drift X170 expect some good videos once I get out

Oh, just checked the box and there's no plug or remote control

I'll give em a quick ring in a mo. Might get it even cheaper if they can't find them.

What a service!

Well thanks staples!

First of all I went to the Veho website to see if they had a price for the remote and plug adapter. No joy! Great I'll give em a ring....No Number! Email them then...Automated message said the the person is away till the 3rd July. Not having much luck here

Next I rang Staples to let them know there are bits missing. They said they'd check the storeroom and ring me back. 10 mins later they rang back to inform me they couldn't find the bits. They were very sympathetic and offered me a full refund or a reduced price to 20.......Now I wonder which one I'm going to choose

I've just got back after accepting the reduction in price, they even threw in a Belkin universal USB wall charger.

So thanks Staples! Customers do come first....Sometimes
