Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Looks nice in the car (if you have a Mercedes ...). Good finishing.
Cons:
Not a sturdy construction. The support is nice except for the bad sucction. Image definition is not so good but acceptable. Manual is hard to understand - it is not English. You have to be very creative to understand. The controls are not intuitive, with different leds flashing or not meaning several thigs. I put it in the car and it worked for 1/2 an hour or so and stoped. It went back to the box. Two weeks later I tested again and, surprise, it was working. I put it in the car again during the night, ready for the next day. Unfortunately it wasn't working at all in the next day. Mistery ... I'll keep trying ... a firmware problem ?
Other:
If you want to record your driving, maybe it would be a good idea to spend a little more money and buy something better ... Otherwise, take the risk - your camera may work. I'm sure I'll find a use to it, but probably not the intented one...
Bottomline:
It was not expensive for a camera and I was testing Dealextreme (it was my firt purchase). I took the risk. I'm not happy with the product but I wont waste my time sending it for repair or replacement. It is too far away. I'll have fun disassebling it. On the other hand I became a DE fan...
