Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for peace of mind. Had this camera in vehicle for over a year now and have to say , apart from an odd reset now and again it has been very reliable , make sure you purchase the correct SD card and you'll be fine . Everyone who notices it comments on it and is surprised when I tell them how little it cost me , It does look ten times better when played back on laptop but let's be honest , after the initial viewing is done you should ( hopefully ) never need to replay it , just plug in and unplug at end of day with the satisfaction that if something untoward had happened you have got the true story of events , very pleased with this camera .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price this is great value. I have put a 16gb card in and it will record for over 9 hours without overwriting. If you connect it to the cigar lighter socket that switches on and off with the ignition it starts recording at engine start and stops when you switch the ignition off. The screen is small but if viewed on the PC at home registration numbers are easy to read, the on board speaker is not very good but again on the PC speech can clearly be heard. Make sure you fit the supplied battery as it will forget the time settings etc. every time the ignition is turned off. It's easy to set up and attach to the screen. In all an excellent no claims bonus protector for under Ј40.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from screen froze Only had it a few months.... Seemed to work Ok for the price. But after just a few months, the screen is all white, frozen, and you can't do anything with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brought this yesterday and decided on the cheaper version by the reviews of both of them. Picture quality is good in the dark and the rain . could reconise number plates through playback on a PC. the only fault i can find is the time and date does not keep on the unit so if you want the exact time and date you have to reset it every time you use it so is a tedious job. Also watch out for the unit unscrewing itself when installing on the windscreen.Apart from that a good cheap unit to have and to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought one today and tried it out this afternoon. A mate had bought one and showed me and I thought I've got to have one of those (being a bit of a gadget geek). Brilliant piece of kit for the price but I totally agree with a previous review that if it came with an SD card so it was plug-n-go would be much better. It's only a few extra quid! However I haven't tried in night mode or to its limits yet. Would like to be able to fast-forward on playback and haven't worked out the LED lights yet (any advice appreciated...). Overall though - excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this along with A94LC (which fails to work) for fitting to a mobile crane, mainly to record the crazy antics of other road users when faced with a crane. And in that it excels. The night time recording is surprisingly good under both streetlights and non-lit roads. Quality of recording is not good enough to catch number plates on any of its settings, though if you shout it out, the on-board microphone will catch them that way. One issue, is that it does not save time and date. You can program it in, but as soon as you cut power (Like unplugging it or turning the ignition off) it loses the internal clock data. This means that when you go to copy the clips to a computer, they all read the same time and date. A decent buy for the price (It’s also fairly robust as well, as mine has been dropped a few times whilst moving between cranes), though the mounting between bracket and camera is a little flimsy and has a tendency to unscrew by itself. Would buy another one, and indeed I am on here at the moment to do just that..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of kit with either constant video recording while traveling or you can set it for recording if it detects movement while your vehicle is unattended. Realy easy to set up, just fit to the windscreen and plug into the lighter socket and it starts itself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good camera for the price, but as pointed out the instructions are a bit confusing and could be clearer...I agree too that the straight power plug makes the installation untidy. The supplied windscreen mount is huge compared with the little camera making it visually obtrusive and maybe illegal...So I made a DIY mount using a 6M bolt, that was for some reason a better fit to the camera than the actual supplied mount ? You can then devise your own way of mounting it, for example, to the rear view mirror arm, or the window trim with cable ties a P clip or an home made bracket, hot glue etc set at the correct viewing angle...Finally, screw the camera onto the bolt then lock it in place with a 6m back nut.. Alternatively purchase a mini table top mount from a pound shop, or modify an old tripod
