Thanks, might get.
It would be nice if you edited your first comment. Some people may not read past that not knowing you didn't know what you were talking about.

Worse generation ever made, full of bugs and issues.
This is false.

The Black edition was plagued by bugs and issues (though software updates have supposedly remedied most of them.)

The one listed here, the Silver edition, has never had these problems.

Please don't thread-crap by spreading misinformation.

I have the black edition and I love it.
I just sold my black edition at a considerable loss because of numerous issues including but not limited to: 30-40 minute battery life (goes up to almost one hour with battery pack), frequent crashes/ freezes, inability to reboot after freeze, RLOD after very few uses (and that was after the latest software update was performed). Who knows if this one is any better. I still don't understand how they would release a product with this many flaws for retail. Whatever you do, don't get the black edition.

if you really had those issues, why wouldn't you just have it replaced under warranty instead of selling it for a 'considerable loss' ?

Can this do video looping? I'm looking for something that can record continuously and write over the oldest video footage. What are all those Russians using for dash cams?

I don't know why Rakuten is advertising the original price as $399 since the silver edition is and has always been $299.

Actually actually, the latest version of software for the Black edition is quite good. I haven't had my camera freeze or fail in any capacity. It's running flawlessly. Now if they could write software that makes it use less battery, I'd be in heaven! Big Grin
Does the remote work? And how is the battery for the remote (how many hours does it last)?

For strictly dashcam usage, check here:

and
http://dashcamtalk.com/dash-cam-comparison/

If we're talking about a car (not motorcycle), there's (almost) no reason to spend $200+ on a fixed dashcam when $60-100 will do you almost as well. The GoPro Hero3 is a lot of fun for other uses, though.

Please be cautious about providing Rakuten with your direct credit card account number.
64 SD Users (so far) report recent fraudulent activity on the credit cards as a result of a Rakuten purchase.

A little late on my reply... sorry. Yes the remote works, but I rarely use it. It drains the battery on the camera too fast.
