Z-Edge T4 Dual Lens Dash Cam Review

I am a big advocate of dash cams and I think everyone should own one for their own good. It is a small investment that can help clear up insurance claims and prevent insurance fraud. There is a dash cam for every budget, and I have reviewed options from Aukey which are just £50 through to the Nextbase 512GW which is currently around £140. You can, of course, spend much more than this with some BlackVue models costing more than £400. I have only reviewed front facing cameras so far, which are great, but ideally, you want to cover...

Senwow Dash Cam Review – A sub £35 dash camera with 16GB MicroSD card Score 75%

Senwow Dash Cam Review – A sub £35 dash camera with 16GB MicroSD card

I have reviewed some superb dash cams over the past couple of years, in particular, the Nextbase models stand out, and the 512GW is the one I personally use. However, at over £130 it is not a small investment, and if like me you drive a car that is worth less than £1k it might seem counterproductive to spend over 10% of the value of your car on a camera. However, that does not mean you shouldn’t get a dash cam, they can save you a huge amount of stress when it comes to dealing with insurance claims, and...

Best Dash Cams for 2018 (Front and Rear)

With increasing insurance prices and insurance fraud via crash for cash becoming increasingly common it is stupid not to invest £100-200 into a dash cam system when driving. Cash for crash fraud costs the UK £340-million every year and Association of British Insurers says that every year fraud costs honest policyholders around £50 each in higher premiums With so many cars with smart functions and parking cameras I find it bizarre that manufacturers don’t build in dash cams, or even a bumper cam. So, what are some of the best options for drivers in the UK for 2018? I...

Thinkware F100 DashCam Review

As a relatively new driver, I am a big fan of dashcams, with the cost of insurance and the issues with fraudulent claims, having video evidence of an accident is essential in my opinion. When you are spending £500+ a year on insurance, it seems daft not to buy a dashcam for a fraction of that price. I have previously reviewed the superb NextBase 412GW, 512GW and the Philips ADR810 as well as the more affordable Aukey dashcam. The past couple of weeks I have been testing out the new Thinkware F100 which is currently available on Amazon for...

Nextbase 512GW Dash Cam Review

We reviewed the excellent NextBase 412GW dashcam in November last year. The 512GW is the model above it and it is supposed to replace the 512G offering a higher resolution and built in WiFI. In terms of features it is more closely related to the 412GW I previously reviewed but with  a better image sensor and more advanced night time shooting, along with a supplied polarising filter. The specifications of this model include: 140° ultra-wide viewing angle to capture all of the action GPS records location and speed data to view your journey on a map Click & Go...

Philips ADR810 Dash Cam Review

Please note that this dash cam was provided by Philips free of charge. The review is fair and honest with all the opinions expressed are mine alone. This is our second dash cam review, and hopefully one of many. It is becoming a massive market that can help reduce your insurance costs significantly and be a great deal of help if and when you are in a car accident. This, unfortunately, is especially true in the case of fraudulent claims that are on the rise. The ADR810 from Philips is 1 of 2 dash cams Philips has started to...

Nextbase 412GW Professional Dashcam Review

This is actually the first in-car dash cam I have ever reviewed, but as you may be aware, it has become a huge market in recent years. In some countries like Russia, nearly every car uses one, so it is strange that it has taken so long to take off here. Nextbase is a brand I had not heard of, but is actually a well-established company in the dashcam world, with a range of products, all well reviewed and widely available from Halfords and other shopping sites. The Nexbase Dash Cam 412GW features: 140-degree wide angle view with QUAD...
