5.0 out of 5 starsEasy to install with great record quality
Reviewed in Australia on 26 June 2019
I was eager to install a dash cam as I almost had an accident when a car dash out in a T junction in front of me. I installed it as soon as I received it.
Quality: -Lightweight -Easy to install -Large lens for low light recording -Clip-on design, easy removal of the camera without detaching the suction cup.
Operation: -The menu is easy to navigate without the need to look up user manual. -Build in timestamp for accident track. -Able to set the Car Plate number watermark on the video, in the event, there are multiple recording SDs from different vehicles. (I have to mask off my number plate for privacy purpose)
The low light recording is good when there are more light sources around, e.g. traffic junction, near the shops, where most of the accidents happen. During the day, almost all dash cam can record clearly as long as the front window is clean. For this reason, the dash cam should be installed behind the area where the windshield wipers can clean.
1.0 out of 5 starsLoop recording, technical support
Reviewed in Australia on 14 November 2019
Loop recording is limited to 1,2 and 5 minutes, need to format the sad card every fortnight, shut down half way trough the recording, Technical department no help at all, not solve the fault, only advice they gave is don't use certain features in the camera, I don't buy again, picture quality is great,
This is my first dash cam. I got it after reading several great reviews and also because it seemed easy to install. Today I had received the delivery, a dayearlier then expected and it was really easy to install which is a plus! Would recommend to anyone that wants a great dash cam at an affordable price.
Material Quality: The unit is made up of quality materials. It is very light but solid that gives the premium feel. The and cables are also made up of good and flexible cords.
Usage: Very simple and easy. Setting up the program is very straightforward. I didn't even read the manual and I find it easy configuring the dash cam to suit my preferred setup.
Installation: I placed it on top near the passenger side as my port is on that side, the cables are very flexible and perfect size that it fits on the insides and pillars of my car allowing a very neat set up.
Video Quality: Great very comparable to high end dash cam. I had an expensive dash cam that had a slightly better video quality but the price gap between that dash cam and the Apeman dash cam is so outrageous! When transferred in the PC which what all most likely do when an evidence is needed, both video clips is almost identical.
Over all: With the price of this dash cam, it gives more than I paid. It records with a good quality, the angle is wide enough the capture whats important in the road, it has high end feature such as parking mode, motion detect that is seen on more expensive dash cams. To simply put, it does the job without breaking the budget!
I have never had a dashcam before and in doing research found a lot that were well over my budget. I wanted something entry-level that I could first try out and see.
This camera came in earlier than expected. It was actually delivered the next day with my SD card. I opened it up, read the manual quickly, and set the camera up as it was recommended. That same evening when I had time, I went into the car and with the provided "stick" to help in the wire install, I installed the wiring and the camera with such ease. To be honest, I have always been hesitant because you will always see some wires dangling or something if not done properly. BUT...it was a breeze and that helping stick was a miracle. I snapped the wiring securely and installed the camera within 15 minutes. NO EXAGGERATION.
Overall, the ease of install and setup of the camera was a breeze. The resolution looks great and the screen on the camera is clear. I have driven since and its working great.
This dashcam seems to be a very good purchase for $45! Was extremely easy to set up and get running with a 32Gb PNY class 10 SD.
Menus were easy enough to navigate to set up any which way you want. I turned on motion detection and G sensor incase something happens when parked. Haven't pulled video or stills from the camera to computer yet but the picture looks clear as day on the LCD.
Product was sold out when I purchased but it arrived earlier than the estimated time.
I haven't used it very much yet but I'm overall very happy with this purchase and will update if necessary.
This camera is amazing. It's small but capture the wide range with a good quality video for both day and night. It's easy to attach since they provide two different ways to do so. The menu program does not seem too complicated as other, and easy to adjust the video resolution to smaller if you have a small memory and want to make it last longer. I would have bought it earlier if I knew about this actually. It's affordable than others but the quality is as good as other expensive products which make me feel it's worth the money I spend. I love this when they provide the two different kinds of charger because my car does not have the USB charger.
