I snagged the Contour 1080, right when the Roam came out and everyone thought it was going to be better. Brand new from Amazon I paid $119. One of the best "bought it new" deals I've gotten I think.
And yeah, having extra batteries to switch out is very nice. I have a 16Gb card in it (and a spare) but I've found that the limiting factor is strictly the battery. I get about 4Gb of video at 720/60 (about 4 hours worth of game time, stopping the recording in dead situations) when the battery runs out.
