I got this camera a few months ago... I feel it was worth the $40. As mentioned, sound while in the housing is almost non existent. Camera itself is pretty cheap, but the waterproof housing it goes into is pretty solid. I've used it underwater at the beach, had it mounted to the bow ring of an inflatable boat with a 9hp engine on it. I have also dove in to the water off a boat with the camera in front of me, if water was going to get in, it would have here, but it didn't.
No where near the video quality of a $200 camera... but its also only $40.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a bucket of wings and a six pack of beer!

It charges while in use and in car mode (one of the three modes you can set the camera in) it records in in a round robin fashion. Overwriting old footage as it goes. The sound seems fine while not in the waterproof housing. It is as good as any other dashcam I have seen footage from. The suctioncup has been on the inside of my windshield now for 3 or 4 months and it has not fallen off once. I did see a video someone posted that tried sticking on the outside and the cam fell off quickly. I took the camera to the beach and filmed a little bit underwater and it worked fine. Yes it has a bit of a fisheye lens and yes the battery life is pretty short. But all in all, I though it was worth the money. I have never used a gopro so I don't know how it would compare but for my light duty needs, this one is fine. I have also looked into hacking it to upgrade the battery and it looks doable. The colored case comes off with 4 screws and the battery is just a standard lipo soldered onto the only board in the camera. I think that it would be fairly easy to add two additional small lipos inside the casing. One on each side of the lens. Would also be easy to rig it to have an external battery and you could have runtimes as long as you wanted.
How does it perform during night/evening driving?
