, January 4, 2014
This review is from: Black Box G1W Original Dashboard Dash Cam - Full HD 1080P H.264 2.7" LCD Car DVR Camera Video Recorder with G-Sensor Night Vision Motion Detection WDR 140° Wide Angle 4X Zoom - NT96650 + AR0330 (Electronics)
I recently bought two of these, one for myself and one for my wife. I bought two SanDisk 32gb class 10 cards for these cameras
Product works but there is a big problem, the files seem to get corrupted! One full file is often missing ( for example I can see me getting close to work but the immediate area, parking lot etc is gone) yet I have two files with the same section of a trip! This happens almost all the time. I disabled all the extra features thinking the issue is with the G sensor, motion sensor or the delay circuitry. But it did not help.
The camera has tons of features but its hard to use, most buttons have multiple roles on the instruction is very poor.
On the positive side it comes with the batteries, the suction cup works well so far (it has a lever, not these radar detector cups that you have to lick and they still keep coming off) comes with multiple cables (HDMI etc) movie quality is not 1080p (in photo mode it might?) but its good enough. I did not try to test the G sensor and such since It has a bigger problem with the missing file.
I will keep using them and I promise to let you know if the product falls apart or quits operating, If you don't see an "edit" assume they are operational as described above. Also if the manufacturer reads this and will attempt to help I will edit my review as well.
At this point I can't recommend, missing files are unacceptable!
