Reviews from several models over at Amazon

I bought one of these from woot as a gift. It was DOA, seems like bad batteries. The person I gave it to called to get it replaced, but they wanted the original receipt and pay for shipping to repair it. So I just took the camera back and bought him a Go Pro instead. BTW- Pyle is who he was supposed to send it to for repairs.

very cool… i want one of these

Yes kaela516 this is very cool and I can’t blame you for wanting one. As luck would have it,it’s available for sale on Woot today.

Why would you spend 149 on this PILE camera when for 50 more you could get the real thing.

I hope woot someday offers go pros

I bought one of these two woot-offs ago. It arrived packaged well and I was so excited. I charged it and took it to my daughters soccer game only to have it completely die 34 seconds into the first video I shot.

I was thoroughly disappointed and have since returned it.

RUN!! I bought one of these last time it was up for sale and it turned out to be a piece of garbage! The video quality stinks and you need a specific speed micro SD card not any micro SD card will work in this thing. Don’t have to believe me youtube this exact device and you will see it sucks. DON’T WASTE YOUR $$$ It is a knock-off of the go pro. Unfortunately I did not return it (should have) but my kids run around with it pretending it works so it keeps their mitts off my real cameras so I basically paid 50 bucks for a decoy camera! Both woot and the gear pro company should have their asses removed for selling it.

After being ‘doored’ earlier this summer, I have been wanting one of these. If I hadn’t been riding with a group, the insurance company would have stiffed me by saying the door has been open long enough for me to have avoided it. But after reading the reviews, I will pass on this one.

We’ll I must say I am disappointed in this camera. Came right on and was fully charged and ready to go. Thing is, when I went to playback my test video, I got a File Error (I have a class 10 high speed 32 gb micro sd card in it). It was frozen on this screen. I could not turn this thing off manually or reset it anyway. It has to run out of battery life before it will do anything. I will be returning this “Pyle” of crap back to woot for a refund. Hope everyone else didn’t get a defective one like me.

Warranty? Troubleshooting Guide?
I was one of the suckers thinking it was an older model “GoPro”…
Was working fine as a dash cam, but seemed to lock up there other day.

When plugged in, wont go to camera mode but displays “PC Cam” or “MSDC”.

Anyone seen this? Any ideas how to salvage?

Hi there. Per the features, you have a 1-year warranty with Pyle.

Here’s their contact page: Pyle Contact Us Page

I’m amazed at how many problems people are blaming on this product when they HAVEN’T BOTHERED TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. (1) you need a class 10 memory card. Otherwise it will give you errors. You’re probably using a class 4, which means it will record fine but it’s not fast enough to play the video. (2) Find and press the reset button. It’s even labeled on the flap that covers it. Poke it with a paperclip and it resets and then works just fine.

These things are junk. I thought it was working fine for a month or so, but now it will only work when NOT plugged into a power source (Power only, not my computer USB - doesn’t work there either). I get “PC CAM” or “MSDC”, but can’t get the camera to work.

Contacting Pyle who handles warranty, they want $10 upfront for “return shipping”, so nearly 30% of the purchase price. Since I have 2 of these and they are doing the same thing, I’m trying to figure out if it is worth it or to cut my losses now.

Too bad for me. Hopefully it’ll stop someone.

Thank you…unfortunately, they want $10 for return shipping. I’m a bit put off by that since it’s nearly 30% of the price of the item…Plus I bought 2 of these and I’m having the same issue, so suspect if I’m throwing more money away…but thank you for the update.

I bought this camera off amazon and had this exact same problem. Sent it back bought another and it had the same exact problem. Records video fine, but playback will show “File error” after 3 seconds.

I just tried mine for first time at 4 am today. Does not appear to work. Yes, class 10 (or better) card. Re-formatted card. Charged up. But does not seem to hold charge nor do anything remotely like a camera per se. Driving a Ferrari in couple of hours and want to record it!
