Where do I begin? What's the difference between a $50 piece and a $400 piece?

Made with titanium, with a white gold plate.... How the heck should I know, I have the cheap one?! I'm guessing it would have better features.

How's the image quality? I'm sure that's a major factor.

Also brand names will obviously be marked up higher.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Got this one as a gift. Anyone have it?

I was just looking at it and it seems like it can't be hardwired
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

(Not mobile friendly)

Great comparison chart of all the features, from low end to high end cams.
They also have an article describing the different features that you may find important.

Another thing I noticed a lot of people complaining in reviews about junky mounts.
That's not gonna show up in the feature list so good to check out for it.
Live forever or die trying.

Just got this one for my dash and this one for my back.  A bit pricey, but they have all the features.
I was considering this one for the front, but it doesn't have parking mode and has an external gps receiver.
