Its been in daily use since May. I have it mounted to the bike in the included waterproof housing. It's stood for five months of daily use so far, and been through some truly biblical downpours without missing a beat. The battery life is about 1 3/4 hours, but batteries and chargers are available separately for not very much money. The quality may not be up to GoPro standards, or then again, it may - I have no idea. I do know it's perfectly good enough to read number plates on vehicles and identify people. I only want it as proof incase I'm involved in an accident, though I've also used it a couple of times to review near misses I've had, to see if there was anything I could have doing differently leading up to the incident. I paid £25 for mine on FleaBay, and all the mounts and bits and bobs are GoPro compatible too. HTH.
