After I purchased this and took it to the office for testing. Before that, I kept it plugged in all night to fully charge the battery. Then I installed a high speed 32Gb Micro-SD (Sandisk Extreme), started the camera in motion detection mode, and pointed it against a detailed mesh wall for 3 hours where there was no motion. I kept the camera plugged in.

Every now and then (random 20 to 40 minute intervals), I would wave an object in front of it to disrupt the surveillance view (approx 45 seconds) and write down the times at which this occurred. I disrupted with motion events 6 times. After the test, I reviewed the files. The file names include a timestamp. The timestamp is the beginning time of recording for that file, and each file matched with the time of my motion events. On reviewing each file, each motion was captured, and (for some reason), the camera records exactly 5 minutes of video once the motion ends and closes the file at that time. I don't know why it does this extra 5 minutes, but that's okay. This was filmed using the motion detection mode, so at 720P resolution, I consumed 2.6G of space over a 3 hour period.

All in all I was impressed with these results. For people who felt the motion detection did not work properly, I think they just needed to adjust the sensitivity of the motion detector, had motion and did not realize it, or perhaps out of the factory line there may have been a few lemons in the lot. But with this test, I confirm that motion detection works, and works well!

I purchased two of these and both have the same problem. The time stamp is never correct even after syncing it with my PC per the instructions. The motion detection and recording seems to work randomly when it works. It will go a day with random recordings and then a day with no recordings. I placed them in a busy location for testing after they failed twice where I deployed them. Major fail. very unhappy with this product.

Horrible video and the thing only records when it feels like it. The worst part is that it's advertised like it's HD video

Worked for a week or so... then it didn't seem to want to turn on with motion, so I added audio trigger as well. Hardly anything would trigger it to turn on. A couple of months later, it doesn't even want to record, totally dead and useless.

Within its first month of use I was able to obtain footage of two people who had been breaking into my home stealing bit by bit. I provided the video to the police and they were later caught. (as with most ignorant criminals, good local police already know them)
The product works as it states, its battery life is good and it is small enough to be inobtrusive if clevery applied. I still chuckle at the still frame I have of the two fools smiling on camera, thinking they had once again stolen from me with impunity...
Thanks for a great product!

Totally unreliable. Records sometimes and not others. Manual and tech support are pretty worthless. This has cost me time and money.

I purchased this camera because of it's sleek lines and low profile. it met that need but that was about it. had to install several other programs on my computer to be able to use the camera which caused continual pop-ups. was not able to install programs due to "incompatibility" with my operating system.
