Searching through the web for a half decent dash cam for the family car and found this.

Seems to have some pretty decent reviews and looks ok for the price.

Got one on order so will update when it arrives

Worth a punt at £23.

Mine will be arriving Friday and if it's no good it will be going back and I will be sure to leave a negative review and update this listing

Just bought one, assume 4 left now. Likewise will test and keep/return. thanks

Hmm ebay price is £29.99 so good find I guess.

I'll keep an eye open for your reviews

Piece of carp you say http://www.abc.net.au/news/image/7084670-3x2-940x627.jpg
this price does seem a little fishy if you ask me.

yup +1 this all the collect+ locations nearest me have disappeared and the only way to get a return is to arrange a pickup. Got some headphones from Amazon lately and they didn't even bother with a return, just refunded me and told me to chuck them in the bin.

​They have a limit on returns which they don't disclose. Too many returns and you'll get your account blocked.
How many y is too many? Nobody knows.

Where did you got that information from? Hmm so I have some special privileges because I return quite a lot of items. Maybe because I have prime for a few years and order something every single day they love me so much

Hmm I will look later. I'm a bit curious.

Tempted yesterday and just come back to this thread to buy, but noticed it has been expired now!. Just as well, after reading this review on Amazon...

I'm bemused by the positive product reviews and left feeling almost … I'm bemused by the positive product reviews and left feeling almost cheated having wasted both time and money purchasing this product.The Dash Cam comes well presented in a fairly nice box. It feels good, having been constructed from surprisingly good quality materials. The camera has a nice weight to it. It has a good sized and decent quality rear screen and it features well proportioned chrome buttons that all provide a satisfying click when pressed.Unfortunately that's pretty much where the positives end.The quality of the captured footage (which is in AVI format) is very poor. I tested it in various combinations of natural/indoor lighting and using multiple resolution settings, and the resulting movie file quality was never anything other than horrible. The image is washed out, blurry and foggy. Even in midday sunshine number plates were either difficult or impossible to make out unless extremely close (2-3 meters). And if this dash cam has Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), as advertised, it doesn't work well, if at all. It also does NOT have Infrared as is advertised in the item's title.The instruction manual is next to useless (genuinely). Not only is it written in incredibly poor English, but it's wrong. Many of the features do not work as explained or in the way instructed. For example, it consistently refers to the 'OK' button. There is no 'OK' button.The buttons are poorly placed on the side of the unit making them difficult to see. Not that seeing them is particularly useful as there is no clear explanation of what they actually do. This is not an intuitive dash cam. Menu button functionality is awkward and confused. The 'Up' and 'Down' arrows are the only buttons that constantly perform their expected duty

Nah, it was longer than 2-3 years ago.

It was happening 4-5 years ago, din't th8nk it was new then, but could be wrong.

It is true though. May be yhey take amount spent into account? Or have a balance (ie you must be in credit / positive balance by certain amount)

May be you are very close to get it, be very careful, people have lost their membership with no refund, not only that they block the whole household and you cannot create another account. Strange but true

Had my camera for a couple
Of days now so here are my 1st impressions.

Set up and instal - fairly easy.
Video quality - half decent. Not super HD but you can easily identify car number plates from a fair distance.
Photo quality - ok. Would use it for family photos but ok if you need to take pictures of any damage.

I will give it a couple more days

Yeah is all good.
G sensor triggered the camera whilst parked and caught some one bumping the car.
