All dashcams are generic chinese cameras, and it is difficult to understand what you are getting. Often there are fakes of fakes, they may be called the same name, but internals could be completely different. Currently I have a fake K2000 model, which I don't even take off when it rains. Somehow it is still alive. Similar units can be found on ebay for about $30. The higher quality (video, not assembly) are at least $45. I picked this model primarily because it could be easily mounted on my bike.
