So I decided to check out the quality of the video this thing was capturing in one last ditch effort to justify my purchase. Well the actual camera unit is of such poor quality and has a cheap lens that produces a very bad fish bowl effect. Playback on the unit was not smooth at all. Instead it's displays 1 frame every 2 seconds. During all this I had it plugged into my power port in my car and I noticed that this camera got very hot.
So I am returning it and going to purchase the one sold by BAIKLOV in hopes that it is not a cheap knock off. So shoppers please be aware that if you want the actual dash camera that's depicted here DO NOT buy it from Tech-e.
-Small and discrete size
-Easy to remove and put back into mount if you don't want your car broken into
-1080p recordings are pretty sharp compared to other cams
-Good night recordings. No infrared is used, just whatever light is out there which is mainly from your headlights
-Build quality is good, doesn't feel cheap
-Mount powers and charges the cam. Uses mini USB port
-GPS logger is built into the mount and surprisingly works well as it's supposed to (I recommend using RegistratorViewer to view recordings than the one this came with)
-Menu interface is easy to navigate. You have to hold the up button to go to the menu. Hold the up button again to go back
-Comes with an extra 3M sticky pad (I had to relocate, luckily it came with an extra)
-Firmware is known to be buggy! Need to update to the latest firmware version
-Difficult to find technical support. Recommend going to dashcamtalk.com/mini-0801/ for help and for the latest firmware update
-Mount is semi-permanent. Cannot adjust/move to another location without using another 3M sticky pad
-Removing the mount can be a pain. Using floss or fishing line helps greatly. Just saw off the mount and the glue should be easy to peel off
-Dash cam can be picky with SD cards!
-It is recommended in the instruction manual to use Class 4 or 6 microSD cards. There are various issues, such as recycling full cards or only filling up half the card, when using Class 10 microSD cards. However, I'm hearing that the latest firmware version addresses most of the problems. More testing is needed to verify this.Read more ›

UPDATE 11/2015: I have begun seeing issues with the camera's battery. The battery no longer holds a charge, so the camera has difficult starting when I first turn the car on and I sometimes have to wait and fiddle with the camera to get it working. Also, I really wish the cable for the camera was a couple feet longer (mostly because of my car's layout and my desire for a clean, invisible installation).
Because of the battery issues, I am moving down to three stars.
This dash cam has performed well so far. I've equipped it with a 32GB Samsung microSDHC (class 6) card and I have not had any issues to far. The microphone picks up sound quite well (you can hear my turnsignal indicator pinging away, even over the blaring radio) and the video seems clear enough.
The only downsides I have experienced are that the manual is sub par and the operation of the unit could be a bit simpler. Much of the English in the manual is quite garbled and difficult to understand. It also seems like parts of it were written for a previous version of the software which includes settings that are no longer listed in the menus on the camera. As for the operation of the camera, the menu layout takes some getting used to since there are only 3 buttons. I wish that the unit would be more clear about when it has stopped recording sound/images (it can be tough to see the tiny mute icon on the screen).
