This is a cost-effective, relatively decent dash camera. It does have some features I was pleased to see - Shock sensor which, when enabled, will automatically write-protect or lock the 3 minutes preceding the impact and a period of time following the impact; emergency record button for when you need to record video RIGHT NOW!!!; support for up to a 32 GB microSD (it comes with an 8 GB microSD); date/time stamp on every frame of video or still (can be disabled); 12Mpixel still camera (max - can also do 5Mpixel), with or without a delay. The unit can also be configured to invert the video in the event you want the camera mounted upside-down.

The unit is, quite literally, ready to use out of the box. Plug the vehicle auxiliary power cable (cigarette lighter cable) into the camera and then into the vehicle and you can immediately begin recording video (it automatically starts recording).

There are a few shortcomings with this dashcam. The suction mount it comes with, while strong, is such that there is over 4 inches of space between the lens of the camera and the windshield. The mounting point on the camera is proprietary, so the suction mount would need to be modified to use any other mount. The spring on the microSD slot is actually too strong, in my opinion. Should you have a mishap and slip when trying to insert or remove the microSD card, it can go flying across the room - literally! Fortunately, I was in a room with wall-to-wall white tile or I would have never found the flyingSD.

As I frequently park in places where having a dash cam in plain sight would attract thieves, I have to take the dash cam with me. It, unfortunately, does not come with a semi-rigid case, nor does Cobra seem to sell one.

In summary, a good value if you are willing to accept its extremely minor deficiencies. Good job, Cobra!

So, I have had dash cam's for the past year or so. All from China, the last being a good cam (DVR207) which in itself received good reviews. That is, until I figured out if was putting out spurious signal emissions that were screwing my FM signals up. My GPS traffic receiver could no longer receive signal, weak FM radio blocked, etc. Nothing worked to resolve that other than to wait until "FCC approved" US based companies got into the game....and now, Cobra and soon Garmin (next few weeks) are finally jumping in.

Took a shot and bought this cobra about a month ago, used from Amazon ($93). When I received it in 2 days, looked to be new. If you're used to these type devices or are a nerd, it wasn't to difficult to get through the menu system. But for most, it would be nice if they could put a basic manual together with simple instructions. The biggest step, is that the menu cannot be accessed while recording. Most dash cams don't come with a external off/on mic button, this does which is great. The screen is not bad for the price, pretty much have to be right in front of it. No side viewing. The camera rotates but you have to manually go into menu and flip image. That should be a future firmware fix, that if you rotate camera, the image automatically flips. The suction cup has been good so far...though that will be finally determined once the Texas heat arrives. Note, make sure you remove the plastic suction cup cover that it shipped with, it peels off otherwise ain't gonna work. The boot-up and auto start of recording is fast and has been without issue so far. Once you mount device in plastic mount and it clicks, I don't think it will come out very easily without taking it off of windshield and strong arming it out.

This camera was a mixed bag of pros ands cons. First of all, I tried two other dash cams around this same price range, and this one was better than the others in the categories that were important to me. I've had this model for about three weeks and so far it seems very reliable. It records video clips when it is set to record. This sounds like a no-brainer but the other cams I tried constantly had gaps missing between clips when they should have been recording. However, this camera is useless for recording at night. Basically, you can't see anything passed your headlights. I drive a truck during the day so this was not a major concern for me. Also, when recording at 1080P HD the video frame rate drops to 24 fps causing a stutter when viewing the playback. I record at 720P and the playback looks awesome and you are still able to read road signs at this lower resolution. This camera seems to have problems rendering green at times and the trees and grass have a purple tint to them but that still wasn't a big problem for me.
The only other drawback was that the owners manual for the camera is very basic and not very informational. Still, anyone with any tech savvy at all should have no problem figuring out how to use the camera.
Another pro about this model was the fact that you can lock the current recording with the push of a button, preventing it from being recorded over. Great for saving interesting moments on-the-fly.
Finally, the built in battery can keep the camera recording for at least half an hour. I leave the cables in my work truck and use the battery to record my drive home. Very convenient.
Overall, it met my needs without having to spend twice the amount of money to get a higher end camera.
