5.0 out of 5 stars Works great at 1080p and in low light
If you want a dashcam, you need it to record at 1080p resolution. Other dashcams at lower resolution are not worth it. This unit records at crisp 1080p, it's compact, light weight and has a good quick release. It records in .MOV format. The bigger aperture ( F1.6 Big Aperture) also allows it to record in extremely well in low light conditions. The mini USB car power...

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great at 1080p and in low light, August 18, 2013

This review is from: DOD LS400W Car Dash Cam Recorder Full HD 1080P 30FPS (Electronics)
If you want a dashcam, you need it to record at 1080p resolution. Other dashcams at lower resolution are not worth it. This unit records at crisp 1080p, it's compact, light weight and has a good quick release. It records in .MOV format. The bigger aperture ( F1.6 Big Aperture) also allows it to record in extremely well in low light conditions. The mini USB car power adapter has plenty of length for even SUV's/minivans. Sound recording is good quality too. It's 30fps, so it playback is not choppy. The 140 degree wide angle is just right - anything wider would be just too much. For fun you could easily mount the unit backwards and record the occupants in the car like they do in some TV shows. I used a 16GB Kingston micro SD card (stores about 2 hours of continuous 1080p video). Beware, if you by a cheap generic micro SD card, the unit may freeze after a short while (this happened to me)! You can also re-format the card with the unit too to fix a freeze.

I'll probably buy another for my other car. It might be a good idea to get one also for the car's rear to record traffic behind you (many SUV's/Minivans have power outlets in the rear of the car).

Other reviewer whine about the unit not coming with a micro SD card. Most dashcams don't come with one and is not a big deal. Others complain the instruction manual is not that good. It could be better, but seriously, if you just play with it, you'll figure it all out very quickly. The people that have issues are just not technically savvy or good at problem solving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool Car Cam, July 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: DOD LS400W Car Dash Cam Recorder Full HD 1080P 30FPS (Electronics)
Purchased this item thinking it is going to take a month to arrive, but it arrived in half the time. I promptly purchased the Micro SD card from Sandisk and tested it overnight by filming outdoor activity from my living room. It takes a bit of fiddling around with menu options to get things right, but once you figure out how that works, it is a smooth sailing then. Make sure you purchase a quality Micro SD card as the whole thing become hot when mounted on the windshield. I chose the more expensive one, and no regrets. The SanDisk Extreme 32 GB costs more than its competition for the size, but it is fast and can operate in really hot environment. Other than a poor instruction booklet for the Cam, which doesn't even cover all options, the camcorder is doing great at what it was meant to do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good camera, August 7, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: DOD LS400W Car Dash Cam Recorder Full HD 1080P 30FPS (Electronics)
The camera seems to be good quality. Attachment piece for windshield is rather cheap though. NOTE: camera does not come with Micro SD card--buy your own. And not every Micro SD card seems to work with it. I first tried a SanDisk 32G class 10. Absolutely would not work. Then tried Samsung 16G class 6 and that card works fine.

This review is from: DOD LS400W Car Dash Cam Recorder Full HD 1080P 30FPS (Electronics)
This was a great product. I liked the 140 degree lens and the awsome night vision. The picture was very clear and night vision was very crisp and clear. I would have given it 5 stars but, the sound was very low.

The camera unit itself is great. Records in a wide variety of formats and the battery lasts for a decent amount of time. The real problem with this unit is the mount. Does not retain any surface tension and requires the use of an additional adhesive pad just to stick to glass. On top of that, the joint that connects the mount to the camera doesn't even lock all the way into place, making the unit as a whole extremely wobbly.

This review is from: DOD LS400W Car Dash Cam Recorder Full HD 1080P 30FPS (Electronics)
While it takes good pictures and video, it seems to reboot very often and I can never be sure if it is recording or not, or if it saved the recording. Did not appear to use the whole SD card's capacity either. Would not recommend this item to anyone.

The pictures are good. It would be much better if I had gotten a manual with the camera. I have no idea how to do the settings.
