Terrible Camera, do NOT buy!

Pros: It looks cool, thats about it...

Cons: Had this camera for the longest time, and not one time has it actually helped me, this camera was a complete waste, it does not delete old videos, always tells me the memory card is full, it records when it wants to, sometimes when I'm driving, sometimes when the car is parked, its never records when you need it to, also the placement of the charger is terrible, after a while it gets loose and it interferes with the window, I literally just smashed this camera against the ground because it didn't record something I needed it to and it recorded other stuff throughout the day, the car was in motion as well, so there should be no reason for it not to record! cannot trust this product.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this for target practice.

It was okay while it worked

Pros: Reasonable price

Cons: Mount wobbles, design gets too hot in anything but an arctic climate

Other Thoughts: Read the reviews and bought one in the spring of 2018. I lived in the Sacramento Valley, which has a very hot climate in the summertime, and I think that contributed to the premature failure. As others have said, this camera gets hot, and I think that, combined with the heat of summer, caused the battery to die when the unit was only a few months old. It took me a while to realize this, as the unit would power on when I started the car, but was no longer keeping the date/time, or saving any recorded video. I researched and bought a replacement battery from (another vendor), and soldered it in, and it began working again. But in February I realized something else was wrong, as it would simply shut down randomly while I was driving. Not even a year old at that point.

Good image, when it records

Pros: Beautiful videos (have 2 forward facing cameras at opposite corners of the windshield for stereoscopic view)
Cables were long enough to be tucked into the moulding, reducing clutter (and possibly the reason they weren't stolen when my car was prowled)
Small size stays out of the way / doesn't obstruct view.

Cons: Cameras require microSD cards, making the camera a mm thicker to instead use SD would have been preferable IMO - cheaper memory cards and no need for a converter. I forgot to order the cards with the camera purchase, and it was difficult to find the microSD cards in local brick-and-mortar stores, so effectively I had to wait additional weeks to actually use the cameras (not an issue if they used the more standard SD cards).

Sandisk 32Gb memory sticks died in both cameras within 2-3 months of purchase; as those cards cost about as much as the camera itself, and I needed to buy replacements (weeks more without any recordings as I ordered more), this significantly increased the effective price of the cameras. As the cards died in both cameras, I'm blaming the camera design instead of manufacturing defects in 2 of 2 cards.

More recently, I've had issues with a loose cable on one camera, such that any speed bump (multiple in my neighborhood) rocks the car enough that the camera loses power (and instantly shuts off as the backup battery apparently doesn't work). Most worrying is whether the camera would actually record in the event of a crash, which would be a more severe than a speed bump.

Other Thoughts: The second camera records 24/7 (the outlet maintains power even when the car is off), and fills the memory card every few days. Normally, it loops and overwrites the oldest video, but occasionally it just stops recording at all (it may have an auditory warning but it is in Korean, so I have no idea what it says). I've observed this when I view the videos on my computer and find the most recent image is a month old. The camera's light has been blinking for a month (which apparently shows power not recording), but the camera itself was doing nothing. This is a problem I can work around by regularly checking the camera manually, but means that the system is not the mindless insurance I was hoping it would be.

Good quality picture - stopped working

Pros: Very pleased with the quality of the unit. Easy to install.

Cons: The unit is very heavy - probably due to the optics (which is probably a sign of quality) - take care to ensure the suction cup is well adhered to the glass due to the weight.

Other Thoughts: I bought two units several months apart. The second unit suddenly stopped for no apparent reason - would not start up or show any signs of life. I wrote to Ampulla through Newegg's link - I have received NO response from the company. No pleased at all.

Great on paper, issues in real life

Pros: - Great specs
- Good packaging
- Received refund (even though Newegg decided to keep the tax portion)

Cons: - The manufacturer seemingly abandoned their web site and the support email address is invalid (the messages return with non-delivery report)
- Dascam "forgets" some settings, such as Motion Detection:ON becomes OFF or the date gets reset to the initial 2015/1/1 (it seems the battery is dead out of the box)
- The sensor is not great, it is hard to recognize license plates even in day light even when a car is passing you in the next lane
- Mount is weak, I have to tighten the small screws every week, otherwise the dascham is rocking left and right, back and forth on the mount (the support offered the small refund and suggested the alternative mount to buy)
- The mount should include the adhesive option, the included suction cup mount is not strong enough and the dascham falls down once in a while

Other Thoughts: I have 2 of these dashcams hardwired in 2 cars and both have the issues I described.
I just contacted support and going to update this review if the supports offers an acceptable solution.
At this point I would gladly accept full refund and try to find a better dashcam with a better sensor
*Update 2018-07-19: the support is very responsive and seems to be helpful. I received a partial refund for the defective mount and support suggested that I buy another mount (t-type). They are working on the dashcam forgetfulness. Adding one egg.
**Update 2018-08-31: both dashcams developed another issue - when permanently connected to power they suddenly stop working (system crash?) and stop recording anything. When I turn them on by pressing the power button a word Recovering is briefly displayed in red. The support agreed to send me full refund. I'll see how that works out.
**Update 2019-01-08: Received the refund before tax from the seller, the tax portion was supposed to be refunded by Newegg but they decided to keep it. I chatted but no action. Both cameras have dead batteries now up to the point that they do not keep date and time setting even for a few seconds. Support email address is not valid anymore and their site look abandoned - http://www.ampulla.net/shop/on-dash-camera/ampulla-pluto-ondash-camera/

Overall, I would avoid this product (one egg). I only give 1 extra egg for the good support (initially) and the fact that I received the refund.
To those who gave this camera 5 egg review - check if your dashcam is actually recording and how good the quality is, especially at night.

Not recommended

Pros: Video quality is good. Unit construction is top notch.

Cons: The mount included with the unit is no good. Mine broke within a month or so. Manufacturer recommended another and gave me credit for the mount, which was nice. Now, just 6 months after the purchase, the unit keeps shutting down randomly and won’t power back on until after i take the adapter out and plug it back in. Waiting on seller response since the unit is still under warranty.

Other Thoughts: Not worth it. My Uniden dash cam was not as fancy, but worked flawlessly. Pass on this one.

Defective Units

Pros: Initially, units work great. I bought two units on November 26, 2017. The units have a one year warranty.

Cons: After about nine months, the units start getting hot to the touch. The unit loses it's date and time function when the battery starts malfunctioning. I suspect a low quality lithium battery was used in the unit. Also, where the unit articulates on the windshield mount, it becomes loose over time. It should stay semi rigid to hold the camera in the parked position. The suction cup has worked well.

Other Thoughts: The first unit stopped working in July 2018. The vendor sent a new replacement unit for the defective unit. So far, it's still working. The second unit stopped working in October 2018. I've contacted the vendor twice without a response. I trust that Newegg will get this warranty claim resolved.
For future purchasers, I would not recommend purchasing this unit due to its failure rate with the lithium battery. However, I will change my rating, if the replacement units will perform better.
