Terrific form factor
Pros: Finally, a logical design for a dashcam! Blends in very well with any car interior, and the power cable is long enough to route any way you can think of. The built-in display works perfectly, can be turned off at any time, and the somewhat smoky mirror works well both day and night. The display blends with and doesn't interfere with the mirror function, and the status lights are dim enough for night driving. Keeps recording for a few seconds after power is lost. Pause, stealth, and switching video modes are done with one button. Recording quality is quite good with few artifacts compared to web cams. Mine came with a 4GB memory card, allowing for about 15 minutes of footage with medium quality. No USB connection or software required -- just plug the card into a card reader. Standard SD card makes upgrading the storage a snap. Subtle enough to leave in place without thieves noticing it.
Cons: It takes a little time to get used to the 3-button menus. Thankfully, they are only needed when setting the date or quality settings. The camera lens is a tad stiff, and just a bit more range of motion would be nice, though I have no issues with getting a full frame. Audio volume is good, but the sound is a bit muffled.
Other Thoughts: Very happy with mine. It's pretty well constructed and not as large as you might think, so you'll get used to it quickly.

Silly little toy
Pros: cool little gaget
Cons: ok... here is my main point. Why would you need an accident cam that points forward?! You don't need a video of yourself rear ending another car... you know it's your fault...
Other Thoughts: Yes... its a cool gadget but that's it. doesn't have much functionability...

Pros: Installation and setup were very easy. High quality video playback even at 640*480. I turned the audio off so I can't judge on the sound quality.
Other Thoughts: If you accidentally press "reset", be sure to read the section "To set language to English & to set up date" to get back to English.

Wonderful product and so worth it!
Pros: This dash cam is wonderful! It has a sleek and subtle design that belies the powerful technology inside. The HD video quality is impressive and seamless in replay, connoting a high record/transfer ability.
Cons: Although I would love if it were cheaper, the price is understandable for how well-built this product is. The only other thing I would mention is that it's a tiny bit bigger than my rearview mirror which took a little while to get comfortable with.
Other Thoughts: Worth it! Take the time to understand the tech and it lives up to everything promised. I'm a very satisfied customer.

I like it
Pros: Must say i was pleasantly surprised with shipping speed.
Cons: Maybe it was just me but i couldn't figure out how to automatically have it cut off when car is shut off. It keept recording when i went to the store...
Other Thoughts: Bit pricey. If it was 120$ or so i'd pick another one up.
