Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
The price is quite low. Viewing angle is really wide, sufficient to observe traffic situation. Lens works fine even towards the Sun. Automatic start/stop feature works perfectly.
Cons:
Low resolutions. It's not 640x480, it's much lower. I think about 320x240 is more likely value. The size of device is rather big, I thought it's a little smaller. Sucker mount doesn't sucks at all, so it is completely unusable.
Other:
Video quality is not so bad. Cars and pedestrians are visible even in the nighttime. License plates are readable only in daylight in very close proximity. Cycled recording works OK, with about 3 seconds gap between fragments (in 2-minutes mode). I could not understand how to speed up video during playback, so it's not easy to find and play needed recorded fragment.
Bottomline:
If you need a cheep car DVR, this item is not a bad choice. But you must construct your own mount, because enclosed mount doesn't work.
