Absolute RUBBISH!!!

published

I know it's cheap - but NO battery life at all. You can't even change the date and time. We bought 2 ... we may as well have thrown $70 in the trash. I love Aldi for the bargains - but I will NEVER buy a Special Buy AGAIN. Very disappointing!!!!!

RUBBISH

published

This dash cam is rubbish. I have persevered with it for over 2 years. The battery decided to grow. I replaced it with a new one. The video quality is very poor. You can't read number plates. The camera will not hold the set date and time, and is not user friendly to reset. I am usually happy with Aldi products but they have stuffed up big time with this one.

Faulty battery

published

I found the camera on the floor in my car with battery cover off it and battery ballooned to twice the size. The battery pushed off the back and the whole camera went with it. Lucky I wasn't in the car at the time. Not happy at all with the product.


Don't touch it with a barge pole.

does the job BUT

published

the previous black box I had created a very detailed video, sadly this does not. It is impossible to read a number plate unless over 2 meters away, though the picture is okay and would be very helpfull in a accident if you need to have a record of something a few cars away like the number plates forget it.

Not very good.

published

Although it works, the picture quality is very poor. You can't make out the license plate numbers of cars in front of you. The output file size of the video files is very large. No compression. Also the audio capture is not very good either. I would not recommend it.


Aldi crash cam Maginon branded

This is a good value camera for the price,and Aldi always take the item back if it proves to be unsatisfactory,
so it is a good buy,for the price.The mounting is easy and everything works as it should do and the picture when played back on the computer is reasonably good.

Cheap and nasty

published

Cheap Dash cam, it does work and it does do what it says.

It's cheap construction and the operating system doesn't really match the button layout
Day time video quality is good and audio is good.

The mount is good and versatile but bulky.
It runs a nokia Li-ion battery that has a good life and could easily be replaced.

I'd get this on special if possible. It's worth about 30 dollars

Yes, I have 2 and both seem OK. Have a problem though in that card gets full and wont overwrite older files. They have to be deleted to get it started again. Tempo was of no help as I couldnt understand the asian accent.
