Just FYI. It looks like this product is refurbished and not brand new. It says comes in "Brown Box" and comes with 90 day warranty. Not the standard 1 year warranty from GoPro.

I'd get a renewed Hero 6 for $185 on Amazon before this. Hero 7 at $270 is also a nice step up, but a bit pricier.

The Hero 5 is over 3 years old now (2 models behind the latest), and the last 2 generations added greatly improved stabilization. The other generic 4k cameras out there for cheaper than this Hero 5 ($80-100 range) compare very favorably over the Hero 5 Black, but the 6 and 7 trounce all the competition imo.

2 years ago I replaced my Hero 5 Black with some Thieye cameras that perform better. My single Hero 6 beats them both easily in audio/video quality. The Thieye have a few other advantages in features/usability, but cannot compare in the final output files vs the 6, and presumably 7. The company did good at getting back to the top of the market after the 5.The 6's stabilization also compares favorably to my two Sony action cameras with optical stabilization.

Yea, but it's not mentioned if it is manufacturer or third-party refurbished
