Cheap but not so cheerful!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prestigio Road Runner HD1 Car Digital Video Recorder (Camera)
I bought this video recorder on good faith after reading positive reviews. it arrived in good time, well packed.
The video quality is not what I'd call "HD" and even fairly close number plates are hard to read. Otherwise the quality of the video is, rather dubiously, suitable for recording the basis of what happens on the road in front of you. The problem did not become apparent to me until I examined the videos on the 16Gb fast card that I used.
I wanted to copy and save a video that showed a Richards Reliable Road Transport Articulated lorry carving me up at a roundabout, in the wrong lane, no signals and forcing me to brake before the front of my car was squashed under the trailer! However, the video before that (it is supposed to be set to record in 15 minute lengths) showed up until about 4-5 minutes before that incident. The incident itself was not recorded! If there had have been an accident I'd have had no proof whatsover apart from a trashed vehicle! Not happy. I checked every track and there were none after the one before.
The "blurb" says that the VCR will record for 15 minutes, then automatically start writing another track. However, it does not state that this event *might* take place some time after the last track, maybe five minutes? Maybe ten minutes? When?
The quality, although not clear or sharp, would have been acceptable at the price, but the fact that it did not continue to record one track immediately after the last is unacceptable and undermines its purpose.

I have a serious problem with the clock, up to two hours out, evidentially useless. Otherwise very impressed.

I'm guessing this is a joke, if it is, it's very funny, if it's not a joke, it's funny for another reason, :-)

I didn't have any of the problems you seem to be having, maybe you haven't set it to the correct video resolution 1920 X 1080 I believe is the top one but I am getting broken files, which are just as bad as missing files because I can't play them & they can't be fixed, are you sure you have yours set up to loop?
