Mine is external and you do need alot of light around it to see at night..........other than that it does the job fine.........i have it recording 24/7 to a pc for home use......
In the day its perfect but i will say you need to have a acesse point close by for a good signal..................

Ive bought a few in the past (like those rubbish X10 ones) but never thought it was worthwhile using. If the image is poor, its pointless. With a brand new car soon to be sitting on my drive, I want to view it by the minute!!! I want to see the faces of any potential crook!
