Angry On my 2nd Droid, ready to exchange for 3rd...should I keep it?

After writing a long thread and having it disappear, here is the jist of it. I was about to get an iPhone until Droid "landed". This is my first smartphone and I love it. It's better than (fill in the blank). I have religiously read this forum since my purchase in early December. My first Droid was great for two months until it shut down mid-call and wouldn't reboot past the "Droid eye". I tried everything to fix but couldn't so I reluctantly exchanged it. Verizon "expert" salesperson gave me a reman Droid, which concerned me but I didn't want to make a fuss about it. She claimed it was a new Droid and then inserted my SD card. After turning on the phone, SD card wouldn't read, so I opened it and found that she had just jammed it in the metal piece. I fixed it and was on my way.
Now my camera video gets choppy and freezes during playback, but the audio keeps playing. My friend warned me about Motorola but I decided to buy it anyway. I'm really disappointed and ready to exchange again. Should I kept trying until I get a decent phone or give up and switch phones. What's your opinion?
After months of reading posts, I decided to contribute. Thanks.

Well, you're past the 30 days so why not.. I've had to replace mine already also. I'd keep replacing until ....................

I got mine about 3 weeks after they launched, and I have not had 1 problem relating to the phone. (I've had FC's and stuff, but that is because of custom roms)...

Hopefully you get lucky, and third times a charm! Keep it!

I'm sorry that after reading this forum for so many months and end up having ur first post be a negative one. That sucks. but honestly, I've replaced mine but luckily I got a good one after my first exchange. I don't think going to another phone will be very cost effective since ur past ur 30 days. I would keep trying because getting a droid that works is really worth the hassle. This phone really is a great phone. Good luck with ur next droid.

I wonder how healthy your SD card is. (?) They aren't infallable by any means, especially at 16 gigs in such a small (& new) package. All it takes is one or two well placed clusters to screw you up.
