Pros: Excellent video quality. Everything you need is included. Has lots of extra features. Records in 3 minute clips, once the MicroSD card is full it automatically overwrites existing clips (oldest first).
Cons: Some of the extra features require you to manually activate them, for example night vision and parking monitoring. 64GB is the maximum size MicroSD card you can use.
Other Thoughts: This is my first dash camera and so far I am very happy with it. I'm a systems engineer for a managed I.T. company so I drive everyday to different clients. It did not take me long to realize that there are some amazingly horrible drivers out there and that I should probably get a dashcam. The camera arrived very quickly and in good condition.
Out of the box the camera is pretty much ready to go, just install the included MicroSD card and mount it in your car. Once the camera receives power it will start recording automatically. I have not messed with the additional features like parking monitoring and night vision too much, mostly because they require me to manually turn them on. I also am not using the included GPS tracker.
I have ordered a 64gb MicroSD card to replace the included 32gb just because I want to try and get a full week of recordings on one card before the camera automatically overwrites the oldest clips. I'm currently getting about 3-4 days with the 32gb card.
I have not used the included software. You can put the microSD card into any card reader and watch the video clips in Windows Media Player (or whatever video player you prefer).
This review is from: SYBA PCI USB 2.0 4+1 shared port controller card Model SD-VIA-5U
Cons: No drivers for anything newer than Windows 98/ME.
Other Thoughts: I searched everywhere for a driver to get this card working in my Windows 2008 x64 server and found nothing, not even on the VIA website. Waste of money! and it will cost more to ship back than I paid for the stupid thing, so I am out $8.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GOgroove Pal Bot Portable Rechargeable Android Speaker with Dual High Excursion Drivers and Passive Subwoofer - Works with Apple, Samsung, LG and more Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops, MP3 Players
Pros: I loved this speaker while it lasted! It sounded great for it's cost and size.
Cons: The speaker wire.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this on 6/7/2013 to use mostly in my bathroom to listen to podcasts and occasionally to take on travels. It was exposed to high moisture conditions on a daily basis and I was sure that the moisture would eventually kill it, however it never did. It was the retractable speaker wire that caused it's demise.
Just before Christmas of 2014 I lost one of the speakers but I noticed that if I wiggled the wire down near the jack I could sometimes get the stereo (both speakers) back working. That lasted for 1-2 weeks before I got no audio from it at all. I'm 100% sure that the copper inside the wire where it goes into the jack had broken due to constantly pulling it out and rewinding it back in. I tried cutting off the plug about an inch up the wire and splicing on an old headphone jack but I could not get it to work.
So in conclusion, this is a great speaker, but I highly recommend leaving the wire out all the time, do not rewind and pull it out a lot or this will probably happen to you too.
