I got that one, and hated the video quality.

I found it sufficient for my needs. I had one issue with the power cable when I contacted customer service they were very responsive and sent a replacement overnight.

I'm thinking of getting this dashcam. Does anyone here use it? Any reviews?

Revised.

Camera constantly forgets date if car is not used for 24+ hours. Then it's very difficult, if not impossible to correct date.

Avoid.

Was considering buying it. Thanks for the update. Is it with all their models or just the specific one you own?

Can't say, but it appears others are having the same issue with the one I bought.

Update:

I bought this one - http://www.amazon.com/Vantrue-Dash-Cam-Dashboard-Camera/dp/B01CODX8ZY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464629441&sr=8-1&keywords=vantrue+dash+cam

And I like it.


I also bought the cobra CDr 820 (for $30 on clearance as opposed to $50 on Amazon) and the cobra CDr 840 (for $50 as opposed to $80 on amazon) and if anyone wants to buy either of those off me before I return them, pm me.

I really like the quality and form factor of the A119, especially for the price. it is by far the best image quality in its price range.
No Battery, so it is good for very hot or cold temperatures in the car.
Don't bother with the GPS mount, it is buggy, and will most likely hurt your case rather than help it unless you NEVER speed etc.

Frequently available on sale for about $60.

Anker's new camera seems to be similar, lower resolution with higher image fidelity.
It uses a battery though.
