Unfortunately Amazon's method of displaying video's compresses the size destroying any full screen display with quality. I was going to delete it but it still displays clarity in the foreground. To the right are two screen captures of the DVR's actual AVI recorded video with the true quality.
Edit 9.13.14 Click on my name to view the excellent screen grabs taken from the AVI file to the left. The Amazon player does not do justice to the quality.
I just received my second KeyChain DVR. It arrived at my California home in 7 days by free shipping USPS as did the first one. It is packaged in a very nice storage box and makes an interesting gift to give away. You do need to purchase and install a micro SD card for the DVR to work.
Edit 9.6.14: The second DVR purchased has two arrows on the fixed marble button, not three as before. The internal software has changed, it does not seem to have continuous motion triggering control mode when used with a USB add-on power supply or the internal software is corrupt. This is a disappointment but I will study it further. I would pay double the price if the DVR had consistent manufacturing quality between units but it does NOT! I have tested five other models and this one can have the best video quality especially in the darker contrast areas.
The sound and picture qualities are CD or better. The AVI files are accessible through a USB cable while charging on the computer. The micro SD card can also be mounted in the adapter sleeve then directly into the computer. After a little practice using the vibrating mode indicator becomes second nature. The night light IR LED's works best for a monochrome recording, like reading a newspaper at 12".
It comes with everything needed including two USB cables. One of the USB cables has a male RCA phono plug so you can watch what's being recorded using the video input on your living room digital TV.
No extra software is used as the DVR has its own internal software/firmware. I use a Class 10-32gb SD card for added benefits. This KeyChain DVR has excellent video when I compared it against my Z12, Z15 and the Brickhouse. The latter three use identical external user feature selecting software which is better but the video quality is not quite as good. When the KeyChain DVR is plugged into a $10 USB 115v wall adapter you can do continuous monitoring in Motion Mode for several weeks with excellent video before the 32gb SD card fills up. With my poor memory it is the perfect way to record notes, I will not leave home without it.
