Arrived yesterday. For the money it seems solid. Lacks a lot of features that the more expensive ones do, but for the price I wasn't expecting it to have some of the other stuff. The mount seem sturdy, although I don't like how low it places it, although this is personal preference and not a flaw, I'd imagine all of these are similar, I just don't like actually seeing the thing.



I didn't have anything at the moment to try and rig up someting different, so I just took some double sided 3m emblem tape and attached it to my rear view mirror raising mount. Surprising it seems to be holding well it keeps it out of sight to me behind the mirror. Naturally when it hit bumps it will shake some but it's not a big deal to me.



As far as video, seems to be pretty good for the price. A lot of these claim 1080p HD and I wasn't expecting to actually be that good, nor is it. But it's good enough for what you need it to be. Main thing I don't like about this particular one is the lack of settings for loop recording. It only gives you the option for 1 or 3 minute videos. I would like the option to do longer clips of 10 or 15 minutes. My main issue with it seems that for some reason, it's not actually recording everything. There are large gaps where it just stops recording. Today I went out to pick up lunch. It started recording but stopped after a couple minutes and then there was no recording til I started the truck up again on my return trip. I'll have to play with the settings I'm hoping it's just a settings issue or something. I have yet to actually have it record a full round trip. I have a 32gb micro SD card in it, I know it's not getting filled up. I'll try to get up a video sample here shortly.

If I decide I like having a camera in here, I think I'll end up upgrading to something better if I can't get the issues straightened out with this.

Here's a short video clip. As you can see a couple time the video goes nuts. Seems to do this at least once every clip. Need to play with it some more, but right now I can't say I'd really recommend this.

Ouch... looks like an exchange may be in order... or just a refund.

Here's another sample leaving work today. Timestamp is ahead an hour. I could live with the occasional jumpy video if the thing would actually keep recording. Now matter what I've tried so far, it won't just continually record. It will stop after a minute or 2 and only sporadically start recording another clip. My drive home is about 10 minutes and this minute or so clip is all that it recorded.

Well, I still stand by the one I bought, and it will give you 15 minute clips For less than $30 you should return that one and get mine.

Definitely thinking about returning it. I definitely like the price of yours I just don't like that it looks substantially larger, about the size of the radar detector. We'll see.

Final verdict: don't buy this crap. Unless you want to buy mine from me lol.

It's picking up a lot of electrical noise, the audio is pretty bad.. Maybe contributing to the video quality..

Who knows. Reading more of the reviews on this seems a few others have that sound issue a long with my issue of it not really loop recording. Others complain there is a setting that always default back to on that ends up write protecting the files so they don't get recorded over so memory cards fill up fast. The user manual is useless too and it's obvious it was written by a Chinese person with bad English lol.

In the case of the OP, what would be the chances of you having pointing a camera to the rear and correct side of the vehicle to "catch" the accident?

Well theoretically he could have one pointing out the back window too lol. For me personally I'm worried about the person running a red light or pulling out in front or the fucktards that they and scam you by backing into you saying that you rear ended them.

In my case she is saying I drifted out of my lane and hit her. A front mounted dash cam would show what lane I was in.

So it records a 15 minute video and then loops back on the written video or saves it and starts a new video? Stupid question

They save separate 15 min clips until full, then overwrites the oldest, I believe.
