As the previous reviewer I spent some time deciding between the visually similar models available here. I chose this one because it was branded and the most recent addition here, though not the cheapest. Others had negative comments for functions important to me.
I've had it about 3 weeks now and I'm happy to give a 5 star review as it ticks most of the boxes for me.
The most important of which is that it is fully automatic - providing the car adaptor is plugged/ wired into a socket switched by the ignition. No forgetting to turn it on or off, which I most certainly would. You just need to remember to leave the ignition on in the event of an incident (or press the manual on button)
Don't remove the card until you have completely shut down the unit or you will probably lose the last recording
The instructions are clear & easy to understand, (I guess written by an English speaker, not in the usual Chinglish).
When the car is started it switches on and starts recording, stopping recording when the ignition switched off, shutting down completely some 10/15 seconds later after saving the recording.
It also charges the internal battery whilst recording.
You can choose file size to be 2/ 5/ 15 minutes. There's a 3sec or so break between recordings.
When the card is full it will continue by overwriting the oldest file first. I chose 15min as it reduces the chance that any incident would be in the dead period.
Recording quality (HD 1280*720) is as good as I expected, with no jumping or breaks.
It uses a standard (not mini) Sd/mmc card. I bought a 32gig class 10 at the same time as they are quite cheap now.
It also has a motion detect setting and infra red led's so you can set it to see any whilst parked incidents.
It will take still images up to 5M 2560*920 though I've not tested this as yet - (not why I bought it).
Because of the wide angle lens you can't read number plates over about 10 meters (but the audio is clear enough if you remember to speak the number).
My only gripe;
It is a pity it does not have GPS capability for recording Location & speed.
I have been using this for 6 months now and there is not much I can add to the above. Other than the way I have it installed it has been totally fit and forget automatic and faultless, except when the suction cup lets go from the screen occasionally as they all do, it's attached to the printed mottled section at the top of the screen which is not ideal. I'm looking at some way of attaching it to the rear view mirror. (must turn the audio off or remember not to talk to myself in the car)
Unless there is something I specifically want to back up I remove the card about once a month to confirm function (scandisk), which after 6 months use is perfect. There have been a couple of incidents where the video evidence would be invaluable if there had been a dispute.
Everything still working perfectly, including the economical Komputerbay 32GB Class 10 card I bought at the same time.
I've just bought another one plus card to fit to my Honda S-wing Scooter, (now I've worked out where & how to fit it).
So still very much justified 5 star from me.
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.
Image quality isn't bad, and it records as long as the engine is running in settable bite size pieces as AVI.
The included window-sucker type mount was very stable, although I imagine if you have the graduated tint as the top of your windscreen you might have issues.
You don't get a memory card with this, so you'll need one, and a sizable one at that, as you'd need a 4GB card for just 1 hour.
Although the files shrink to a small fraction of that size when re-saved from video edit software with reasonable compression.
