Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 OK for the price
Pros: Works as advertised. Decent picture where there is enough light. Records sound with video. Mount makes positive grip on windshield. Battery backup and 32 GB SD card capacity. Video screen rotates so you can record "selfie."
Cons: So far, poor low light performance. Setup is not intuitive, but figured it out. ON/OFF switch seem to only work in battery mode. Stays on as long as power is applied through the USB port. Windows couldn't find drivers for the USB device, no support found yet but will keep looking. The "door" cover for the USB port is a long piece of thin plastic and flops out loose from one end whenever the USB or power chord is plugged in. Likely it will break off in time. The field of view, as one review notes, is somewhat narrow, more like a "normal" lens than wide angle. Good enough for the purpose I suppose.
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these because the price was low enough to experiment. I guess I'm satisfied they can be useful, if a bit quirky in operation. OK so I didn't read the instructions, small print. Forging ahead, I inserted the battery, plugged in the USB to a computer and it came on and started recording. One can press the button to the right of the on/off button and it will stop. Controls consist of the on/off button, an un-marked button to the right of that, and on the screen bezel, "Menu" button to open the two-page menu, the up/down buttons and the "Mode" button to select menu items. Pressing "mode" will toggle between menu pages. One page controls operation, the second is for setup. Up and down buttons select features. Pressing the button to the right of the on/off button then selects within the menu and sets the selection. I guess that is the "OK" button since it is not marked. Will read instructions to see. Planted the camera on the windshield this AM for the drive to work with no initial setup. It recorded in short files. There doesn't appear to be any drop in time between the end of one file and beginning of another. There are interval choices and a "continuous" on/off choice. The on/off power button seems only to work when on the battery. Whenever external power via the USB cable, or car-power chord is plugged in (both fit to the USB jack on the device) the camera is "on." You can stop it from recording by pressing the (unmarked) button to the right of the power button. If you select the motion sensor "on" feature, it will start recording on any motion whenever plugged in to a power source...no turning it off. It came set to PAL for TV playback. You have to go to the menu to change it to NTSC. Likely that is why Windows Media Player froze after playing a few minutes (from card inserted in a reader). For an inexpensive dash-cam it can be made to work and does what it is advertised to do. No AV cable is supplied, it uses an earphone like plug for video out. The video is pretty sharp as long as you have sufficient light. You wouldn't use it to record your family vacation. More when I either read the instructions or get more experience with it.

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Narrow field of view, grainy video
Pros: Cheap.
Cons: Works like a web camera. Field of view is narrow, barely gets directly in front of car. IR lights do not help at all during nighttime. Camera does not seem to work well at night on view screen. Never played back video with brightness altered to see if you could see anything but without touching it I could only vaguely make out shapes. Seems like video detector is not very sensitive to light.
Other Thoughts: You could probably get the same field of view and performance from a web cam mounted on your windshield. Of course then you would need something to record the video so this is a cheaper solution. Basically pay the $80 or so for a decent car cam is the lesson learned here.
Also the shipping was delayed by a week with no notice as to why by the supplier. I had to contact Newegg to investigate why and they promptly shipped the item without comment.

Pros: When I got it to work, it filmed excellent footage.
Cons: Trouble getting it to work and I stopped trying to use it. The instructions are very hard to understand and very poorly written. When I get more time I am going to try it again.

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 NOT 5MP - Let the buyer beware.
Pros: Nice piece of technology. Adequate for low (ish)-detail/high-magnification tasks.
Cons: NOT 5MP AS DESCRIBED. Despite the 5MP description this unit is actually only .3MP (yes, .3) interpolated to 2MP. Neither of which, by ANY math, is 5MP. If you need larger than 640X480 or high detail look elsewhere. I was lied to. The price is adequate for the 2MP class but would have been a good deal for a 5MP device. Know what you're buying and if your okay with the lie in the description everything else about this transaction was fine.

Pros: awesome little spy glasses although people will wonder why your sunglasses have buttons on them, just tell them what I tell them, that your sunglasses are radio sunglasses that don't work anymore, the sides already look like they used to be speakers.
Cons: None
