Brilliant picture quality - even at night!
Set-and-forget. It starts/stops with the car's ignition. Night mode works well in all conditions, so there's no need to ever change it.
Sturdy but compact mounting bracket.
Good bass in audio. Good mic sensitivity.
Power lead is long enough to run around the windscreen instead of across it.
Circular buffer deletes oldest video when card fills up. Allowing continuous recording without intervention.
3 operation modes: Video, still and playback.
It uses the MJPEG video codec with 8KHz Mono PCM for audio. Although high quality, it consumes 1GB every 11 minutes in HD mode. You'll need a big memory card.
Was not compatible with my 16GB class 6 SDHC card. However, it worked fine with my 4GB SDHC card.
Interface is not very intuitive. Each button has one label but two functions (depending on if the menu is visible or not).
Very slight video jitter, but still better than most (see demo videos)
Documentation states the obvious while omitting important details.
If it had H.264 support, it would have been a 5-star product.
A compact, fully-automated unit that has minimal obstruction to the driver's field of view. You'll forget it's there.
It's definitely worth the money. Just be prepared to buy a very large SDHC to accompany it.
