Not a bad price at 65 (from china) but at 96 (uk price) id rather spend another 65 and get the gopro white.
Be nice to see how it copes with the fast transition from sky to floor, the mobius is terrible at this!

For 65 not bad, but there's no comparison to an actual GoPro for quality. Look's just like phone camera footage which isn't the best... where as the GoPro looks like a PROPER high quality camera. Even the original GoPro Hero HD looks of a better quality than this copy.

Not bad for the money though :)

Looks good, I also received my dashcam from China, ordered from szswill.com (http://www.szswill.com) a while back, but I need to figure out how to disable the microphone on it, and have been busy with other things to see about getting it installed and ready for the road.

I definitely am getting two for my next rig, one for the front, one for the back, so in the next rear-ender, I can show to the judge and jury how the person behind was quaffing a beer or trying to text right before impact.

Of course, this is a double-edged sword, but if I'm at fault (God forbid), I'm not going to be lying about the circumstances in the first place, and that's why I have insurance above and beyond state requirements.
