Features clear 1080p HD video and audio recording, night vision capability, G-Sensor capability and unmatched reliability. The 2.7’’ high resolution LCD screen is easy to navigate. The Black Box dash cam is a breeze to setup; the suction mount allows you to attach it to any flat surface in seconds. The device will automatically start whenever your car does. You are always protected - Camera will record indefinitely via loop recording, overwriting the oldest footage recorded with the newest.
What differentiates our Black Box G1W “C” model from our original Black Box G1W is that it uses a capacitor instead of a regular battery. Capacitors have two great benefits over a traditional battery. One is to continuously operate at much higher temperature ranges with little to no risk of failure. The other is that video file recordings and settings are instantly saved directly to memory. Black Box Capacitor model must be plugged in at all times to continue recording.Features

It is a great camera for the price. I was more than willing to pay near $300 for a dash cam. After reading some reviews about this, I thought I'd give it a shot. As long as it worked, and gave me a clear image of what was going on around me, I would be happy. GPS, speed, and other accessories would be nice, but that's not a deal breaker for me. When I watch the footage, you can read licence plates from 2-3 car lengths away. After that distance, it gets blurry. If something were to happen, it would be best to just verbally read the plates so the camera could pick up your audio.
The audio picks up fairly well. You can hear sounds from outside the vehicle (tires squealing, horns honking, etc) over the music.
An issue I found was that when you loop it at 5 minutes, it would seem like it was not recording. However, it was recording. But the clips were not 5 minutes long. They would vary from 5 minutes, to less than a minute. I'm not sure if this was because I also had the G-Sensor activated and hit a bump or what. But when I turned the G-Sensor off, and put set it to loop at 3 minute intervals, it recorded normally without issue.
Another issue is that the slot the microSD card goes into can be a pain to pull out. I have to push it in, and take it out using something as thin as a dime.
I purchased a 32gb class 4 Sandisc card to go with the cam. I read the reviews about too many issues with class 10s, and wanted to be safe, than sorry. So far, no issue with it.
I also have this unit wired directly to a fuse panel to where I can operate it without the truck being turned on. Make sure you get the right adapter, as the camera requires a 5V power source, NOT 12V. The camera has a an auto off feature which works great for when I forget to turn off the camera.
The only preparation I did was to fit a 32 gb micro SD card to each camera (be careful to get that the right way round and don't force it if it doesn't want to go - the slot is tight and the card seems to go in the wrong way round at first).
The cameras woke on powering up and performed as expected. The suction-cup mount gave great service, never letting go once either on the windshield or rear window.
Some people are saying these quit in bright sunlight. I took the precaution of removing them from the glass and putting them in shade if the sun was very strong and the vehicle was going to stand for hours. I found no problem with leaving them in regular sunlight for about an hour or so.
The mount is easier to just unstick from the glass than to unclip the camera itself, as the toggle on the latch snugs up under the collar of the ball-joint in the suction cup mount making it very hard to release. Not worth pulling a star off for that though, and it can be fixed with a sharp knife and a bit of plastic-shaving. Did that on one, couldn't see the point on the other.
The lack of a battery might queer the deal for some, so be aware that is a feature not a bug. The cameras will not work unless powered.
I did a small test with viewing one camera's footage on a computer, but didn't test both once I verified they were working as I was in time crunch. If I find any problems I will come back and say so. That test produced expected results.

Besides that, you're getting what you pay for here. There are "chrome" buttons on the camera which unfortunately rattle and create and horrible buzzing noise which is a huge turn off for me, as I cherish the audio. The input jack is poorly soldered and it makes a connection 90% of the time, but sometimes I'll be driving and the camera just loses power and shuts off. Not something I really like to have to worry about when I'm driving down the highway at a high rate of speed.
I think the little light on the front is pointless, as nobody using this dash cam is going to need a dinky little light shining out of the front of their car, to confuse everyone with. This is feature I feel should be removed. Overall the camera is very lightweight, almost feeling too easy to break. Speaking of things breaking, at least on my unit, the microphone itself dislodged from its mount on the inside and was free-floating in the internals of the camera, leaving me to take the camera apart and super glue it myself. After having the camera apart, I notice trace amounts of dust inside the lens (behind the glass). I had to also take the lens off and clean it with a q-tip and alcohol, then plug the camera into an external monitor to properly focus it, and then super glue the lens back into focus. I never once dropped the camera or treated it carelessly. I am a full-time digital video producer, and my cameras are treated as gold, even my cheap ones. The camera lived on my dash or on my counter, I would never leave it inside the vehicle to rot away in the sun.
The suction cup is cool and feels like it should work well, but after applying alcohol to the glass and cleaning it with a microfiber cloth, the camera came crashing down in the middle of a drive just one week after owning it. Luckily, the entire incident took place over about 10 seconds as I physically watched the suction cup start to loosen, allowing me to grab the dash cam before it made contact with anything from the fall.
All in all this is just too much hands-on work, to run something that should be simple to produce and easy to run. The menu is very easy, I love the fact that the camera is all black and pretty discreet, but the cons outweigh the pros. For what this camera does, you would be smart to spend the extra $40 and get the Viofo A119-S V.2, and get your hands on something that isn't so ready to break all the time. I am severely disappointed.
