Yes, a buddy lend one of those to me for my Alaska trip this year. I'm not big on videos and not an expert by any stretch. But, video quality is good and the fact that I got it to work tells a lot about its simplicity
I don't like the fact that you cannot check immediately what you're taping (videoing). So, I rode the Denali Hwy for 100 miles with the camera mostly pointing at my speedometer.
Granted, I didn't try out the adjustments before I went on the trip. I slapped it on the helmet assuming the best angle. I guess, you can't blame the camera for that.
My buddy had the biggest SD card in there, which actually exceeded the battery time (4 hours). Again, for somebody who knows what they are doing, I think its a good quality piece of equipment...
