Powerful and Discrete
For all people know, this device appears to be nothing more than a simple portable radio clock. With it fully functional MP3/MP4/FM digital clock radio, it discreteness hides its true purpose. Its powerful hidden camera lens and motion detection capability, it discretely films, even in total darkness. It automatically time & date stamps every recording. With its infrared night vision it can record clear crisp picture, even in total darkness.
Plug and Play
The unit is easy to use with its "Plug and Play" interface and allows video playback (play/fast forward/rewind) via the built-in LCD without the need for a computer. The video recording/playback interface is accessed by a secret button combination preventing unauthorized access. The unit is powered by either the built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery or the included DC power supply.

- unit is small, but feels pretty sturdy and well-crafted
- I leave it plugged into an outlet - the rechargeable battery alone lasts 4 hours when recording (according to the seller), and about a day without recording (according to me)
- get a USB extension cable - the USB cord supplied does not reach an outlet close to the ground if the clock is on a table. I used a male-female USB extension.
- video resolution can be set to 640 x 480; out of the box it was 320 x 240
- video settings (resolution, video quality, night mode, etc) can be changed when you are in recording mode, and go to <monitor settings> using the volume forward or reverse buttons (thanks to Inspector Gadget for mentioning this in his review!)
- out of the box, night vision is weak - can be improved by going into <monitor settings> and set <DV night mode> to "on"; it was "off" out of the box, even though it still had some IR recording capabilities (? - not sure why) - anyway, with <DV night mode> on, you get an OK-ish quality 6-7 feet range in a completely dark room
- Mini SD card that comes with the package deal is a class 4 card
- out of the box it records 30 min clips, each clip is approx. 30-50 MB in size (for 320x240) or 200-300MB (for 640x480 in high quality) - so for an overnight recording, you would find 20+ clips, each 30 min long, in the morning (video clip length can be changed in <monitor settings> to either 10min, 30min, or 1hr)
- this also implies that you get about 15 days of continuous recording on a 16GB card on the lowest 320x240 setting; on the better 640x480 setting, your 16GB card is filled up after about 3 days.
- MAC users: this unit gives me a weird problem: when I connect it directly via USB, it keeps mounting multiple desktop icons (and by that I mean many, i.e. >10, and just keeps going). Somewhat annoying, so I just pop out the SD card, put it into an adapter and put that in my iMac. Takes 5 seconds and works nicely. Anybody else encountered this issue, with either Mac or PC?
- MAC users: there might be a difference between playing videos in QuickTime Player versus other players (VLC, MPlayerX etc) in regards to sound (make sure sound is "on" in <monitor settings>)
EDIT Jan 2016: Unit is still functioning. A while back the blue light of the screen started flickering a little when recording, but it does not really affect the recording quality
Another big problem for me is the battery charge lasting not nearly enough. Mine lasted only 2h & 43minutes in continuous recording mode. In motion detection mode the battery lasted nearly 7 hours. In that span it recorded only two 5 min segments which means that for the rest of the 6h & 50 min the camera should have been using very little to no power at all. That to me is a very low performance for a battery. So if you have to be away at work for 8 hours or so, you may miss something that has occurred one or two hours before you got home because the battery has died. Again defeating its purpose. You could leave it plugged in the whole time but that is cumbersome for two reasons: 1 the cord is about 1 ft long (cca. 33cm) and one would need to purchase a separate extension USB cable as others have mentioned, and 2. The device is black, the cord is white and the extension cord is most likely going to be black again. Some may see this as a makeshift contraption that raises suspicion.
I've noticed that once the battery goes out it also looses memory of the date and time settings. So after you recharge it and turn the time back on you will have to go through the process of resetting it every time. Another star down for the battery.
The video quality is pretty bad. I did not see any difference between the 640x480 and the 320x240 resolutions. They both look like a low quality VHS from the '80's. In this day and age you should be able to get a more decent image quality fora $115 camera even if it is "stealth". There are various kinds of cameras that cost half this much and deliver HD with pretty good luminance.
Additionally the video segments are disconnected by 6 or 7 seconds. So if somebody slapped your child during those 6 seconds, or they slipped an item that does not belong to them in their pocket, you will have no recorded proof from this camera. Another star down for video quality and the disconnect.
As far as being a stealth camera I'm not sure how good a job it will do at that. If your nanny decides to listen to some music on this "clock-radio" and she begins pushing buttons randomly on it to see which one makes it "sing", the esc button will stop your video recording. After that the video recording will not re-start even if it is in motion detection mode. So it is very easy for someone to inadvertently stop the recording if they decide to push some buttons. There is a feature to lock the buttons by press-holding the mode button, however that will bring a bright lock symbol on the LCD screen which some may find quite suspicious for a regular "clock-radio". This along with the blue dot, that lets you know the camera is recording, make for an item that's not very well thought out which costs over $100 while the only thing it is required to do well is record video inconspicuously.
All the other features such as radio and photo viewing are not going to be used by most people I presume as they serve mostly as decoys. (Radio is basically nonexistent unless you purchase a separate antenna or want to tape the headphone cable to the wall to get some sort of reception)
I leave two stars because it is a compact and pretty looking item and if you don't mind the low video quality or keeping it plugged in the wall all the time or have people with good perception suspect that they are being filmed, then this would be a useful item for you. In 1990 I would have probably given it 5 stars. In 2015 only 2.
