    The best car DVR yet!

    posted by markostamcar on 05/31/2010

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - wide angle lens - good picture quality - H.264! (better than XVID and MUCH better than MJPEG) - turns on and off automatically when on 12V - LCD screen to accurately position the camera - works well even with lower-class SD cards - the suction mount is st...
    Cons:
    - first one broke after just 3 days, but the replacement worked great for 3 weeks now - picture quality at night could be better

    Excellent dash car camera

    posted by markostamcar on 03/13/2010

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - XVID instead of the inferior MJPEG codec - good quality lens with a *really* wide angle - LOOP mode - supports up to 32 GB micro SDHC cards - 1280x1024 @ 8 fps mode is more than enough to record any possible - it automatically starts recording when there ...
    Cons:
    - it seems that the LOOP mode is broken when using SDHC cards (> 2 GB) with FAT32 - it works fine for a few days but suddenl...

    It's a cheap knock-off, but it works

    posted by markostamcar on 07/22/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    - Much cheaper than the original (which is 10 bucks more) - Good quality build - RGB LEDs - Can be used in your own software in just minutes - It's a very cool way to get notified of new e-mail when your LCD is off
    Cons:
    - The original has 64 levels of brightness for each LED, this one has just on/off (8 combinations) - I won't even try to instal...

    Small, cheap and it just works

    posted by markostamcar on 07/22/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Works on 32-bit Vista without any 3rd party drivers - No 3rd party drivers means no fishy "panda" CDs with viruses and trojans - It takes very little space - Has a nice blue activity LED - Good range for such a small device - It's so cheap I rea...
    Cons:
    - None so far!

    Cute

    posted by markostamcar on 07/22/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - Cute - Cheap - You get two - Different gel colors - I got yellow and orange (but I wish I got blue, too) - Without the plastic cap, it looks quite decent - Mine weren't mouldy at all - It seems (judging by other owners) that you can keep it for 6 months u...
    Cons:
    - It cannot be used as a keychain, because the little bottle is made of real glass. Well, it can, but you'll eventually break i...

    Great for a few laughs, but that's it

    posted by markostamcar on 07/22/2009 Certified Owner

    Pros:
    - Cheap - Small enough to fit into a pocket - Backlit display - Nice packaging

    Another bad clock

    posted by markostamcar on 12/14/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - The design is actually not bad - I like the idea of the whole display being a mode change button - The LCD angles are not too bad, but could definitely be improved (esp. the vertical ones)
    Cons:
    - The colors shift all the time - I hoped they would indicate a specific mode - The thermometer is not very accurate - The alar...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - Cool and decorative - USB powered - Nice colors and their combinations - It provides a cool effect on the walls when turned on in dark
    Cons:
    - The USB plug was a bit rusty - The red LED really isn't as bright as the others but there might be a human factor to this - o...

    It just works!

    posted by markostamcar on 12/14/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - You can't argue with the price - The build quality is okay - The alarm is really loud so it can be used in the basement and heard in the 1st floor (that's 2nd floor for you Americans out there)
    Cons:
    - The magnet in the second part of the device was loose and rattling, which sometimes prevented the alarm from detecting the do...
