Can you see a theme here?

 

When you see person after person all stating the EXACT same issue - that's when RESPONSIBLE manufactures issue product recalls. Considering these missing videos could be a legal issue in an accident - I am VERY surprised this camera manufacturer hasn't...

Excellent video quality

These are known to be defective - period. See comments below.

Freezes - Must be hard reset often.

 

When working, the camera is decent. Mounting hardware is ok and the camera size is ok. Video is good quality and wide angle catches the whole front of the car.

It freezes constantly, and has since a week after I bought it. I didn't notice this until one day, I guy ran a stop sign in front of me, and nearly hit me. I thought I had video on my new camera, but the unit was frozen. I now have to check it...

Beautiful Product when it works

 

If they fix the issues i mentioned, I will definitely buy this item again.

Picture is Great. Lens Wide Angle is Excellent. Installation Kit is well Thought. Night recording is clear.

1. If the item gets heated for awhile under the sun, The unit will Freeze. Especially when you forget to turn it off manually. 2. Video Recorder will not turn off even if you power down the vehicle . You have to unplug the power cord from the cigarette...

DON'T BUY

 

I would not recommend this product. Consistency is the key to this like of product and without it is of no use.

Overall description of functionality sounds good. However, other than good screen the product fails to work consistently -> sometimes turns on and a lot of the times it does NOT which deficit the purpose of this unit.

Does not work properly, period. It turns on sometimes and a lot of the times it does not turn on automatically as it should when engine is started. The worst thing is that it turns on automatically when ignition is turns off and drains the unit battery...

surprisingly bad for the price.

 

One of the supposed features of this is that be on in standby and start recording if there is movement, but that fails when the thing goes into coma-mode.

convenient placement of buttons

I would only recommend this for people with switched power outlets. My AC stays on when the engine is off, and if I forget to unplug the camera, it goes into a blank screen / inoperable state. Unplug and plug it back in right away and the red light...

Dead in 5 minutes

 

Really getting sick of the cheap Chinese made stuff that does not last. However tried getting a comparable speced camera that is not made in China and I did not have much luck finding one at any price range. Yes, I could use my Go-Pro but I would like...

Don't know of any pros at this time, the camera died before I could test it.

Only had enough time to set up the camera's time and date, put stuck it to my window with the power plugged in all the time and it mysteriously died within a minute or two with the red light lit solid and never came back to life. Used the reset button...
