Full HD1080P G1WH 2.7
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

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 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA24G0P60027 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.

4 out of 5 eggs Initial review, decent for the price 12/29/2014

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

Pros: - Cheap price
- True 1080p
- Wide viewing angle
- Very light weight
- Has a display (some dash cams dont)

Cons: - Feels very breakable, particularly the mount.
- MicroSD card spring is finicky, hopefully it will smooth out. It is very rough right now and the first time I put my card in it felt like it didn't properly click and wouldn't come back out. Luckily after a drive it came out without trouble when I got home, maybe it just had to warm up.
- 720p 60fps is NOT true. It may save 60 frames per second to the video, but there is only about 37 frames of new information, so it is doubling up every 2 frames. Not to mention the 720p looks a lot lower res than 720.

Other Thoughts: I just got it (came from China, took a month to arrive) but it is the real deal. I've only used it for a 5 minute drive and then analyzed the video to see what is what. Luckily it appears to be true 1080p and it does work. Now time will tell on the quality and reliability. I'll be comparing it to my Thinkware FXD700 which costs considerably more. Expect another review within a couple months time.
