I've got the original Vado and have really liked it for the price. Good, solid unit that has performed well for me. BTW, its been on sale for $79.99 plus some accessories and shipped free.

I just ordered the Vado HD and am looking forward to it. Creative is discounting it $30 as an introductory price. Likely to beat the Mino.
