The other day I made the mistake of attempting to push a SJcam SJ4000 firmware update to my F23 action cam. I had a morbid curiosity, and a little bit of a destructive mindset. Needless to say that the SJ4000 hardware must be different in some way, as its firmware did not work on the camera.
This A95x is a good value TV box bundle, with fast processing and a nice keyboard. The 1GB ram version will work best for users who plan to watch TV, movies and install limited apps, but as with any TV box I advise spending a little bit more for a 2GB/16GB version as there will be far more space to install apps and better performance overall.
The Eken H8r misses the mark due to blotchy video and the fact that it is not truly 4K capable and hardly even 2k capable. Were it advertised as a 1080p camera it would be acceptable: not the best camera I’ve ever used but far from the worst. It has solid build quality is and surprisingly good still images. It’s just too bad about all the problems with the video.
I owned this TV box for about a month before reviewing it. For that month it worked fine, but it suddenly stopped functioning. It turns out that the soldering around the power port had failed, and the power port separated from the board. This is likely due to heat. For this reason, I could not recommend this TV box despite its great performance.
Overall, this cam is a SKIP. If you want something better in this price range check out the Soocoo c30 as it is based on the IMX078 and Novatek platform which from my experience has been far more reliable in terms of video quality. Plus it has Gyro stabilization!
Overall these headphones produce good sound and are comfortable. If you’re ok with in-line buttons and the odd behind-ear hooks they perform pretty well.
The Musky DY-21L has quite a bit going for it in terms of sound quality. While the bass isn’t extremely heavy, the sound quality is overall decent with an ‘open’ feel to it. It has clear high tones and good mid-lows. Unfortunately some of the functionality of the speaker makes it difficult and frustrating to use.
So I managed to get my hands on a cheap $20 action cam from Amazon. This is the identical internal hardware for those “1080p” action cams that go for anywhere from $15-$20 on eBay. I thought I was buying a slightly better cheap action camera and this was a good deal – but the listing was misleading and I ended up with a piece of garbage. Skip to 2:00 in the video if you just want to see samples.
Overall I really like this little camera. It’s got decent video quality for the price and some nice mounting hardware.
