Summary: The sound of the recorded video is kind of statics. It is exacerbated when you are going faster in the highway. The video quality is not impressive either, not to mention the horrible battery life and not being user friendly.
Summary: I have purchased this unit one year ago and it does not work properly. I had it returned and received another unit which has even more problems . It does not charge properly (blue light does not come on) Also it does not record properly. Red light is on but it did not write files. The proprietary cabling is a bad idea . Company should adhere to standard USB specs. I am sorry but I can not recommend at this time.
Summary: Bought this item to take on an Alaskan cruise last May. It didn't even last two weeks. Poorly designed and wouldn't recharge on my Apple computer. Returned it to Tachyon and they did promptly send me another camera. It worked but, then the bracket to attach it to my helmet broke (cheap plastic) and the recharge light didn't work. I tried everything to get this device to work but I've given up. I wasted my money and should have bought a Go-Pro.
Summary: Having difficulty connecting to the computer ie software does not appear when I connect to the computer so have not been able to use it since purchased. Can you advise how to address this problem otherwise I will need to return the device?
Summary: We have used it for many things, it can be hidden in your house, garage or any room. The voice is fantastic, the hd video is better than expected. I now have bought 4, since catching the thief taking my tools out of the garage and showing the police the whole video, no more problems have developed. Oh yes, I would recommend others to buying this video cam, its great.
Summary: I got this camera to mount to my paintball mask for game play footage. The video is great and since you can use different micro sd cards it can video a lot. Battery life is pretty long, say 4+ hours at least. Its easy to use with a single button. There are tons of different mounts for this to attach to your marker or mask. Its light and small so unlike the go-pro, you dont have a huge camera sticking out when you play.
nice video, incoherent sound, limited file type,no support

Summary: Pros: Great size, nice mounting options, great video quality. No issue with the connection to the computer as others have reported. Cons: User guides, both the supplied "Quick start" and on-line version, are pathetic: terrible graphics, and truly limited directions (they both are a little hint at just how non-serious Tachyon is about supporting their product). Used as a helmet cam on a motorcycle, all you can hear is wind noise.
Summary: I brought this for my son about two years ago. He used it a couple times and it worked fine. He didn't use it for perhaps a year and now it won't work. It turns on--but it doesn't record anything. What a disappointment! I read another review here that indicated the same thing happened to them. So, if you do purchase this item make sure you use it on a regular basis or else you just wasted a lot of money!
Compact, easy to use, adaptable to most environments

Summary: An excellent product at a low price. A little known brand with big potential. The size of this product (really small) makes it less conspicuous than some competitors. It's light weight, easy to operate, comes with numerous accessories and doesn't take a rocket scientist to operate. I've owned it for a few months now; taken approximately 12 hours worth of video (more than 30 different videos) and I haven't had a single problem yet.
