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

Pros:
- Saves the video as AVI, so special software is not necessary
- Very wide angle of view
- Nice video from day conditions
- It uses battery so you don't need to use 12V car charger
- It starts recording when it's powered up
- It stops recording and shuts down when car is powered down.
Cons:
- BEWARE it doesn't work with KINGSTON cards (I tried 4 and with 2 it didn't start at all and with other 2 it didn't record), it works perfectly with A-Data card for me
- not so good video from night, there should be more night vision LEDs
Other:
- Saves the videos in 128MB files, so you don't lose all the record if there's some failure, only the part.
- Menu is different than here from DX photos, but it's easy to use too
- I found that audio recording is better than I expected.
Bottomline:
- Very nice product which works good for me and does the work fine.
- 30 minutes of driving is about 1GB (with 30fps) of space so think about card memory.
