I have two of them and they are pretty good for the price. The "slide in" slotted mount of the camera to the suction cup windshield base is a bit loose. Most owners put a small piece of tape over the "slot" and trim it to take up the looseness in the mount. Otherwise, along with a CLASS 4 or 6 nine dollar 32GB micro SD it works great. Remember. .. do NOT use a pricey Class 10 micro SD. The camera does not need or seem to like them.

it's a good deal. However, from my personal experience, you are taking a risk with electronic purchase from oversea. I had to return a defective camera with my own shipping cost and it took 3 months to settle.

For those even "more FW," this one is only $15.99 Amazon.com/gp/product/B0053DDNW6 . Note though the quality may not be as good (but it doesn't look like the difference is that much from the videos in the reviews), but there are also Fulfillment by Amazon options for those who doesn't want it shipped from Hong Kong.

Waiting on my $19 DealExtreme one to show up. I'm positive it will be janky as hell, but oh well.

Dash Cam Ok, bought 3 of these over a 6 month period. The last two were bought a week apart as another family member decided they wanted one. 3 different purchases, 3 different cams eventhough externally they all looked the same. The first cam worked fine, happy camper. The last two, not so much. Not wide angle, bad lenses, disappointment. Pulled the cams apart just out of curiosity, 3 different sets of internals inside cases that were darn near clones of each other. These are one of the most copied devices out there. Be warned.
Happy Dash Cam Pretty much what is in the first post. I bought this one in November 2013 and it has been great. Good video quality, and no problems yet. Just one of things....be careful as anything that sells gets copied.
There are a lot of cheap copies that look almost identical but perform poor. No way to tell until you get a unit to try. Good luck.
