A few hours of research did go into this. I had almost finalized the ZeroEdge rear-view mirror type cam but they would start rattling on our roads soon enough. Not to mention that spec-wise this one made most sense.

Its a best-seller alright but not made for Indian summers, the plastic melts in high heat.

The mini 08xx series is the only budget cam that gives very good output at night.

It is just $80 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/ChiTronic-Upgr...+0805+dash+cam

Check this comparison list: http://dashboardcamerareviews.com/da...on-affordable/

I have a mini 0805 since April, the night output is very good indeed. It even has GPS.

I totally agree with Samurai here, I have been using mini 0805 from May 2015 and it works absolutely fine in both day and night mode. I have both day and night video sample on my ownership thread (here is the link) - watch in HD.

I bought it from Gearbest.com and the current price is now lesser than Amazon.

hi fusionbang, i was planning to get this mini 0805 from us through my colleague, but as you mentioned the price is less at gearbest...i have one question, do i need to pay for customs if i order from gearbest? do i need to inform seller to undervalue the item and then ship? how much time it would take to reach me after i place the order? need your inputs here.

What is the status of your refund? I see my order still with Frozen status & no refund whatsoever. The shipping reference is not traceable either on 17track.

This Mini cam melted and got distorted in the high heat of Australian summer for a fellow which kept me at bay, I'm from Delhi you see .

The cam that I finalized comes with a warranty of use in temperatures up to 70 degrees, that's not really the case with the Mini series (I almost bought this earlier). How the warranty really holds up in Delhi summer is yet to be seen but going by the reviews it has held good in temperatures upto 40 degrees at least.

Now coming to the night mode, almost every cam upwards of $75 has a decent night output when you've got lights pointing towards the subject. What I was saying was that if your vehicle is parked in a low lit place then no cam south of high priced Blackvue or similar models would give you the minor details such as license plate number.

Also, does Mini 0805 come with motion detection, I'm not sure. I think another reason I overlooked this one. I think the newer ones do come with motion detection but not sure about 0805.

Lastly, a lot depends on one's requirement also. I'm trying to prep for situations when my car is parked unattended, not having to worry about li-ion batteries exploding in Delhi's high heat and discreetness.

Hi Kavensri,

No you don't have to pay any customs, when I ordered this it was sent to me as a gift at 0.35$. When you are buying it make sure you place a note to the seller to send it as a gift, so that it won't attract customs. It took me exactly 27 days for the shipment to reach. I booked it on April 17th, 2015 and received it on May 12th, 2015.

Thanks for the info. I have placed the order now. This is the first time I am ordering something from gearbest, in fact i had not heard about this site so far. But when a fellow bhpian recommends, i need not worry. Thanks again.

Same here. No refund and no option to raise a dispute also. Surprising thing since the other order was frozen and also closed with refund being issued to my account.

You can still contact the aliexpress customer support through their chat section. They will help you out.

Hi Fine, I had shortlisted the Rexing V1, havent got it yet though. Have you had experience with the melting plastic on it? How is the plastic on your i-Max different? Also, how good is the capacitor on your i-Max - does it give you like 5-10 seconds of recording after the engine is switched off? Also, if you can please upload some sample videos from your cam, that would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Also HP one had a larger lcd screen compared to this Transcend model. The clarity of HP lcd screen was much better than this Transcend. I am yet to download the video to my computer to check the actual video quality of this Transcend model. If video quality is same as that of HP cam, I will not change this cam. I think I does not need Wifi or GPS. GPS models can record speed also in the footage.
First, an early morning image from Transcend DrivePro 100.

Just got my dashcam today, after 25 days. I'm a bit disappointed as the specs in AliExpress for the I1000 model gave the video resolution as 1920*1080, while the box specifies 1280*720. Anyway, I'll check it out in real-world conditions in the next few days and if the quality of the video is acceptable to me maybe I won't put in a complaint. I did connect my phone charger to it at home and its working ok while connected to it. The rear cam also works fine and they've provided a stick-on mount along with the suction mount, as well as a remote control, so I'm happy so far.
