Don't buy this! Doesn't work without signing in.


We made the mistake of buying one and they are not cheap. It only works if you download an app and then register and sign in - so they can bombard you with advertising I suppose. I went though the registration process using Facebook which it seemed to do but then wouldn't let me log in. Daughter tried it, same problem. She only got it to work by finding an old version of the app. Its OK if you just want a straight out recording camera, but you can't use it in real time without the app. Don't waste your money.

Great camera for travel

GoPro Hero3+ failed after little use (but out of warranty, doh!)


Camera failed after little use and after a short period of storage (not in use when failure occurred). Camera had been well looked and had never been wet.
Unfortunately the camera was 22 months old so no warranty. GoPro offered the same 20% discount but I'm not going to waste more money on such a rubbish product.
GoPro should man up and offer better warranty. Very disappointed with the reliability of the product.

Most Annoying Wifi Setup


Granted the camera is brilliant, but after 2 years of having the damn thing and then, as humans do, forgetting the wifi password, you literally have to go through the most ridiculous steps to get your wifi reset. With all today's modern technology you think they would make it easier.

Awesome Gopro Hero3+ Black Edition


I didn't expect it's super high quality and the delivery was so fast (took 3 days). I've used it for scuba diving, rafting and sky diving! The quality of the pics and videos is perfect! (For these activities I bought some accessories) all the landscapes are awesome!

Worst customer service


I gave this as Christmas gift the first time it was used for diving the camera was 6 months old worked great. Stored it away tell next diving trip over 6 months later making the one year warranty over wouldn't turn on contacted GoPro they just kept repeating not under warranty would only off a 20% discounts towards a new one. Are you kidding what would keep the same thing from happening. I would expect better with this expensive name brand. Bought a knock off for $100.00 works great and easier to use! Know rounder why GoPro stock is down don't buy go pro

Great quality!


The GoPro Hero 3+ Silver is a great little device. It produces fantastic quality photos and videos with a variety of useful settings. The in-built wifi is fantastic for transferring files wirelessly. Another top feature is the waterproof case, and the enormous amount of accessories. It is a fantastic option if you don't have enough money to buy the Hero 4.

Unable to view long files... anything over 5 minutes


Bit disappointed with the Hero+ Silver, though I like the concept.
I have issues in viewing the films I have taken. None over a few minutes are able to be used with film type software.. even the ones recommended by GoPro.
In fact I have bought another brand, that works fine, until such time as GoPro get a resolve for this complaint. I note that a Google search, many clients are also not happy.
Portable, compact and lightwieght
No facility to connect car 12 volt supply, for extended recording... only batteries.

This is a terrible produce


The GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition is the worse product I have ever bought. You will waste hours trying to get it to work. I used the expensive samsung card as advised and it still didn't work. I wasted another $80 trying to get data off the card. Still can't get the videos to work. It freezes all the time. Don't buy!

Doesn't work. You will spent hours trying to resolve problems. Totally unreliable.
