Only one (very slight) niggle is that the video replay is in their own format (slightly squashed vertically) but a converter is available at extra cost.

Been running it for about six months now with no problems - apart from each time, when the sun comes out, it decides it's detected a movement and starts recording! However, that used to happen on some of the other ones I did a 'try before you buy' on.
