Full HD Thinkware Inavi FXD700 Mach Car Black Box Recorder, Full HD (1080p@30fps), G Sensor, GPS Tracking, 16GB SD Card Included, English Firmware and Manual. #1 selling Car Blackbox in Korea.

Pros: Great video quality, wide viewing angle, excellent mounting system.

Cons: Takes 30 seconds to start recording after starting your engine! Annoying voice greeting that can't be turned off or turned down.

Other Thoughts: I have three of these cameras now, one in my car, my truck, and my wifes car. They are all working well and give me minimal problems. On occasion they will restart during a drive, but you sometimes get a voice warning saying the system is restarting. Other times it just restarts without your knowledge and then you realize it when it does its normal power on greeting.

I do format the memory card every two weeks as recommended by the manufacture. My first camera bought two years ago is still going strong on the original memory card.

Would recommend this camera to anyone looking for a quality camera.

Pros: - Low price
- True 1080p
- Good night performance

Cons: - Does not do 60 fps as it claims, maybe 40 fps and the supposed 720p looks terrible.
- Is not 140 degree wide, more like 115 degree.
- Becomes unreliable if you change settings in the camera

Other Thoughts: My third follow-up, and final unless it gets worse or dies completely. The camera works fine if you leave it in default settings. I found even trying the screen saver function, which is supposed to just turn off the screen was causing the camera not to record much. In fact it recorded less often than when it did. I've had to reset the camera to factory defaults a few times because even turning the setting back to off, still doesn't fix it. I haven't looked for a firmware update but I will, although I doubt there is one. I'll report back if there is.

Anyway for $60, it's a small price to pay for a little insurance. Dash cams review sites recommend a Transcend brand memory card, because some others don't work with this camera. I specifically got this one which has worked fine.

4 out of 5 eggs Follow-up review, decent for the price 12/30/2014

This review is from: Full HD1080P G1WH 2.7" LCD Car Dash DVR Camera Recorder G-sensor HDMI Novatak 96650

Pros: - Good performance at night

Cons: - Not advertised 140 degree viewing angle

Other Thoughts: This is a follow-up to my previous review. I've reviewed video footage and subsequently screenshots from the video with both this camera and my Thinkware FXD-700 in operation simultaniously. Both claim 140 degree viewing angle but this camera is considerably less, probably more like 120 degrees. I wish I could post pictures but I can't, but believe me it is not 140 degrees viewing angle.

I will say the night performance is better than my other camera, which is good news considering there is about a $200 price difference. I think the "WDR" in the software may be helping with this.

The image is about the same in terms of clarity and crispness. Having less of a viewing angle actually means objects appear larger in the picture, so small objects and text on license plates for instance are easier to read. That is not to say that this camera has a clearer lens, it's just that the image appears closer due to the lower viewing angle.

Overall i'm still fairly happy with this camera for $60. The mounting system is very flimsy though and i'm trying to be careful. However I have a feeling even with my being careful I will break it at some point. I recommend putting it up and just leaving it if possible, or just remove the entire mount and camera.

I'll post more thoughts later after I get more time with the device.
