  • Summary: I knew when I bought this the native resolution was VGA and anything higher is software enhanced. I only planned on using VGA anyway and it works. Playback is smooth once you upload the files into your computer. I wouldn't recommend playing back the files directly off the device as the reader is slow and playback isn't as smooth. Quality is quite good and the IR night capabilty is pretty good, although only within a certain short distance. Still, pretty good.
  • Pros: - easy to install, - good length for power cable so you can manage it through the car seams, - good quality VGA, - automatically turns on/off when engine starts/ends, - IR works pretty well
  • Cons: - slow reading/playing the SD card off the device

  • Summary: This dashcam is a good basic camera for recording the typical commute. Not sure if the footage captured by this camera can be legally admissible to the insurance adjusters, but it's better than nothing. Sadly this camera doesn't do true 720p as advertised. It only fits the entire footage inside a 720p file, but still better than having no camera recording anything. One other gripe I have with this camera is that the motion "detector" isn't all that great.
  • Pros: Accepts SD Cards, Uses any inexpensive Nokia cell battery that will fit with the device
  • Cons: Doesn't do true 720p, Real recording resolution's about 640x480, Motion detection DSP doesn't accurately discern motion and no motion during night time

  • Summary: Pretty easy to install physically and the power cable is plenty long. The menu and setup is somewhat confusing at first, but it's not terrible. The biggest disappointment and even misrepresentation in advertising is the camera resolution. It is ONLY 640x480, or VGA. All other resolutions are interpolated, or basically fake. Even the factory setting it comes with, which is "D1" or 720x480 needs to be interpolated.
  • Pros: somewhat cheap, somewhat wide, 120deg, angle lens
  • Cons: not HD, actually VGA 640x480, camera screws in, instead of a quick release, somewhat bulky

  • Summary: It is probably the best deal for the similar product in current market. Video files pick up lots of space but could not provide decent quality video in both Day and Night mode.
  • Pros: Easy to install, Auto Power On/Off, Competitive Price
  • Cons: Picture Quality much lower than expected (720)not even 480
