I'm very impressed with the construction & materials used - this should last a very long time. It is a bit on the heavy side, but won't be an issue for my motorcycle (I could see it being a concern for someone with a lightweight bicycle that was concerned with shaving weight). The stoutness of this product prevents jarring & flexing of the mount, for better video quality. I did not realize upon ordering that this came with a micro-SD card reader - a very nice surprise! This fact was not called out in the description, but is visible in the image.
