Going to purchase a camera so I can get my video on....

GoPro has done a good job of impressing in my mind that they are the best for the price.  What's your take/opinion?

I don't personally have one, but everyone who gets a GoPro seems to think that it is the best. I'm sure there are other cameras possibly for cheaper that will work, but GoPro is definitely the best option for the money from what I've heard.

If you're after a action/POV camera, I would say Gopro HD hero is the best. If you are buying one, don't cheap out and buy a Gopro SD hero. I have no idea on the 960 Gopro thou. 
It's not much of a point and shoot camera thou. So if action filming is what you're after, pull the trigger.
Also they are having a daily giveaway until New years. Check out their site

I've been pretty happy with my GoPro - it's very versatile and I can use it for motorsports, water sports and winter sports :)

If you're looking for something with more point & shoot capabilities where you can review your footage, you might want to go with a traditional compact P&S, otherwise I don't have any downsides to point out for the GoPro HD
