UPDATE 7/16/14: After submitting a claim to Amazon's A-z Guarantee team, I have been refunded 100% of the item price.
After having the camera for nearly one week it has started showing more problems. It has started indicating the inserted microSD card is not present at times. I can't get any files to lock (which is a must if ever I need to record something important). The video quality at night is awful, and in full daylight the colors are washed out.
I think I'm going to upgrade to the B40/A118 dash cam as it is more discreet and apparently had better build quality. Just have to find a good Chinese Seller.
Item is counterfeit as others have mentioned on here too. Took 3 weeks to ship to my address so all the negative reviews came in after I purchased it. If you head over to dashcamtalk you can see the characteristics of the counterfeits. This item fits them, the files are all in AVI format and 1080p at 25fps. The 25fps means it uses the older processor and you can tell when comparing to youtube clips of the real product that the image quality is worse, you can barely read the license plates in the counterfeit version's video. The audio quality is good though. There is a present "hiss" though, which occurs even on the real G1W's.
