Recordings are okay rather than exceptional samples in websites are a lot clearer than I can reproduce. Glare from headlights often masks number plates. The quality of the unit is just about okay. The screen itself is very low quality text and icons very blocky. However the biggest issue with this unit is the laughable mounting design. The marketing pictures and videos show the unit simply plugging onto the windscreen holder. Not a chance. The very basic cheap plastic clip that attaches the unit is really difficult to use and needs 2 hands and a lot of swearing. Almost impossible to do when holding in your hands impossible when attached to the windscreen without pulling out of the windscreen with holder attached. On top of this the mounting has no power connector built in unlike others. You have connect the USB mini connector to the top of the unit again just about impossible to do in situ. What this means is that you have to remove the unit worth the sucksion holder which is a joke as the whole thing then needs doing up and poisoning again, something you just won't do. It has automatic start that must assume you leave the unit on your car all the time. All this will do is Mark your car as a target for breaking into to steal the device. Ridiculous! Has none even thought how this is supposed to be used. Waste of money as it is impracticable. Look at other models that are better thought through and designed with real life use in mind.

I purchased it after the review I found at: cardashcamreviews.com/nextbase-512g-ultra-review/ The image quality is awesome compared to a few cheapo cameras I bought before it. The price is abit steep though and there's probably a more suitable quality camera at a lower price. But overall very pleased with the build quality and footage it produces!

I have been looking for a good in car dash cam for some time and this camera caught my eye, Its easy to use and at first connecting the camera to the plastic holder is fiddly but there is a knack to it and now do it with one hand, It has fantastic picture quality much better than the cheaper versions I have seen, I have used cable clips to neatly position the lead around my passenger side windscreen to my 12v power outlet, Overall I'm very pleased and would recommend this camera very highly

Just purchased one from Halfords for under £140 so I'm hoping it's as good as you peeps say it is. I previously had a Chinese one from eBay which gave great pictures but it had a fault and no matter what size ad card I used, it only ever recorded three minutes at a time and continuously wrote over that file so was useless. This looks straightforward.
