Really like this camera
Really like this camera. I had another hp camera that lasted me 3 years and then I lost it during my move and when I found the camera the cord was damaged. Came looking for a new one and found this. Almost the same lookwise and all the functions are the same. The last one saved me big time. I was in an accident where three cars behind me hit each other and i kept being hit. I was stopped at a red light. All of them denied it but my car had a camera. So i pulled the recording and sent it to my insurance company. It was a huge help. Since then I have one all the time in my car. I put it in the rear instead of the front because to me im more susceptible to get hit from behind in this area. Anyhow, must have this! Automatically detects bumps and records and quality is great.

Returning for refund
Just got this dash cam to replace another brand I had. I selected this one because it had the basics I was looking for, good sized lcd screen, and was a good price. According to the specs, this should survive the temperature variations in the Missouri climate. Pretty simple to operate. Got it installed with very little problems. I will update this review after I have had the dash cam for a while.
I would give this a 5 star review, but I decided a 1 star deduction for the software cd. The software cd contains Adobe Acrobat and the user manual. When the cd start up screen comes up so that you can select something, nothing would happen when I clicked an option. I had to use Win Explorer to see the contents of the cd. I used Win Edge to view the user manual pdf. This is a minor irritation.
I will raise the rating to 5 stars if I am still happy with this after I have had it for a few months.
Update 7/25/2018 - I am experiencing a small issue. Sometimes the dashcam does not come on when I start the vehicle. I did not have this problem when I first installed it. I just flip the witch to off, then back on. The dashcam starts recording. It will shut off automatically when I turn the car off. Not sure what the deal is on this. Any ideas?
Update 07/29/2018 - I am returning this dashcam back to AlumiGogo for a refund. The small issue of the dashcam not coming on was becoming an irritation. On my AlumiGogo mobile app there was a 'Call for Support' link for the dashcam. I called it - and it is actually AlumiGogo Support. They contacted HP for me to try and resolve my issue. They got someone in some HP department. That person said they do not provide phone support for dashcams and referred me to the support.hp.com website. I went there and could find anything for the f330s dashcam. I went to the hp forums and searched for f330s. I found one entry where someone else had an issue. So technically there is no support. For this I am deducting another star. I had the dash cam for 2 weeks. It had a nice display, good angle of view, seemed to record with no issues. I really liked it and was hoping the auto/on would fix itself and it did previously, but no luck.

Great customer service!
For the first ten months this dash cam gave me no problems. Then it turned off and I could not get it to go back on. I contacted PEBA US, and they explained to me what the problem could be and what to do. The on/off switch had broken on the inside, it was no longer making a connection. Which is weird because I never touch the switch because it turns on and off with the vehicle. I was able to turn it back on once I got the switch off. It still works great. PEBA US was in constant communication with me and they are sending me a new switch. Thank you PEBA US for all your help and for standing by your product, even after ten months.

Overall, I'm very happy with this camera!!
This dash cam is great! I had purchase this to replace my old one and this is far better than the one I had. The image quality is better than expected. The video came out very clear, even at night. I don't have to do much SD card maintenance at all. It records in 3 minute loops which is great when needing to find a recording. My favorite feature is the motion detection. When I leave my car (car is turned off), it automictically turns on to record when there is any action (very sensitive which is good) around my car. It is helpful especially when I park my car on the street.
I also like this dam cam because it is easy to install and easy to use, unlike some other ones where you have study the whole manual before you can do anything. The is very compact in size so that it’s not in the way. The LCD screen is great in size, enough for you to see detail during playbacks.
Overall, I'm very happy with this camera. I am think maybe I should get another one to place in the back.

Quality is terrible for this price, menus confusing and hard to use.
Ended up returning this after doing a short trial. The video quality was terrible, with poor HDR and graininess with anything less than full lighting. The audio quality was muffled and distant, and the overall compression artifacts across both video and audio were terrible. Lastly, the menu system for working with the unit was terrible. My goal was to have this replace a cheap $40 dash cam with something nicer, but my $40 dash cam actually BEAT this one In quality, causing me to return this and look elsewhere.

Motion detection is awesome!
This dash cam is Awesome! The quality is better than expected. I don't have to do any SD card maintenance at all. It records in 3 minute loops which is great when needing to find a recording. I can take snapshots. My favorite feature is the motion detection when I leave my car it auto turns on for me when I turn off my car. I plan to buy one for each car just for that feature alone. The screen is great also when playing back recordings. Overall I'm very happy with this camera.

I've had this dash cam for a few days, and I totally love it! At first I thought I had a faulty camera because I couldn't get the sound to play. All my videos were totally silent, and I thought the sound wasn't being recorded, but it actually was. The problem turned out to be the player I was using. When I played the videos back using VLC Media Player, the sound was there. The Support Team figured this out for me via e-mail. I found their e-mail address in some of the other comments here. The video is very clear, and I can clearly read license plate numbers when I come up behind a car at a stop light. For $80 this is a great camera.

Small, but Clear
I really like this dash cam. One of my family members has one of these, so I thought it would be cool to get one. I enjoy that this camera is minature, and dosen't block your view on the road. I also appreciate that you can connect the camera to HDMI, so that you can watch it on a big screen. I am glad that this came with a manual, a disk on how the camera worked, and a charger! I was really impressed with the packaging. This came with lots of airwrap. The footage is really clear, and I am looking forward to using this more often.

Something worth owning when you drive your vehicle.
Best dash cam ever. Hubby was recently involved in an accident and the video was so clear and license plates were easy to read when put on a computer, and it was dark at night. Really impressed with this dash cam. It runs continuously when your car starts and when you turn it off, it stops, so you don't have to turn it on and off. They make an excellent product!

Good camera and easy to use
Good camera and easy to use. Playback video and day and night time is pretty excellent quality and gets the whole road wherever on the front window you place it. I was unable to find an HP hardwire kit so I purchased the REXING hardwire kit for about $11 and the cable fit the HP.
