  • With few good features but dissapointing image quality - as good as it cost

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    + Nice build quality;
    + Image rotation feature (you can mount it upside down);
    + Full HD resolution (1920x1080);
    + Manual exposition correction (+2 ... -2 with step of 1/3);
    + Motion detection feature (you can use it as some kind of security camera);
    + Sound recording can de disabled;
    + Auto screen of with OFF, 3 min, 5 min and 10 min choises;
    + HDMI - mini HDMI cable included (about 50 cm in length);
    + File lock button.

    Cons:

    - MJPEG image codec is far less effective compared to modern ACV codecs, so with this DVR you get bigger files (and less time of video on same memory card) and VERY low detail image;
    - Too few file rotation options (only OFF, 1 min, 2 min, 3 min);
    - Not wery bright display;
    - Night Vision is just 2 LED's flashlight, and they arn't bright at all.

    OtherThoughts:

    Mine was with "20120424" firmware version;
    Just dont know if a G-sensor work or not;
    Very small date/time stamp at fullHD res;
    Nothere was mentioned about NightVision on/off - need to press power button shortly;
    I'd probably will use it as secondary rear DVR.

    Bottomline:

    You can use it for some purposes based on it's pros and cons, but as main car dvr i'd prefer somphing with AVC/H.264 Video Codec.
    It worth its price, just dont expect $100+ DVR picture quality.
