Comparing four best selling dash cams (these were all listed as best sellers at the time I purchased them) in four price ranges! Also note that I only had issues with the Rexing clock not keeping the time properly.
Watch my 2019 dash cam comparison in which I preferred the Vantrue:

  • The Kingslim wins, I don't care about the audio, I am not recording an album. It was the best one when the sun was directly ahead. BUT OMG, THIRTEEN TIMES WITH THE "I WISH IT HAD A SUCTION CUP" I wish it did too so you would shut the hell up about it, lol.

  • I have the Vantrue also which is a great dashcam. Great resolution and night vision. But I got to say their support system is lacking. Firmware updates are hard to find and install and there is no automatic notification of new updates. Their player app worked great for a while and then the maps function just stopped working. I downloaded the Candy Player app which seems to work a bit better. Vantrue has great hardware and lousy software and confusing customer support.

  • Why so fixated on a suction cup mount? Ever have one fall off the windshield when driving? I have. On everything I own that has a suction cup mount. My Rexing is still there, hasn't fallen months after install. And the Rexing with the difficult to reach SD card: the Rexing EASILY comes off the mount. Unless you're a total n00b. Not impressed by your choices. You're emotional like a teenage girl........

  • Thank you for the review. I am looking to replace my apeman because it has not worked very well. I purchased it a year or 2 ago and it tends to corrupt the memory cards. It also will stop saving videos. I pulled it from my car today and there were a bunch of videos from February and 5 form April 2. Today is May 6 and there were no other videos saved. I have been VERY disappointed with this camera. If I remove the memory card ( and I have used several over time) and format the card, it will work for some time. Then it will stop saving videos. Very unhappy but it was not very expensive. Going to upgrade now! Thanks again.

  • I got a kingslim dual dash cam. It has the rear camera included. The audio is pretty quiet, but it's clear. The cameras are the best by far. I paid $55 on sale on Amazon and it's probably the best dash cam I've used. Living in Texas, my super cheap cameras go bad in about 6 months to 1 year. The battery seems to go bad due to the insane heat. So, I've learned to just pay extra for higher quality cameras like kingslim which uses a 2K front camera, and a 1080p rear camera. It also has no problem with the battery going to hell. Also, I've learned to look for cameras with a CAPACITOR instead of a battery. The capacitor power handles heat so much better and lasts longer. Keep that in mind for people who live in hot climates.

  • The suction mounts don't like the heat to much. In SC they last a few months then have to buy new mount, adhesive works a lot better. The adhesive mount is 3 yrs and still going strong.

  • Thanks for a review that is helpful to the average person. I saw a lot of reviews of dash cams that are not available in our local big box or amazon and priced out of our range. Ya, they are good but not in my price range. You reviewed what I would call the everyday dash cams. Thanks. I now know which I am going with. Kingslim. Keep up the good work.

  • I was worried until you did your summary outside the car and had the dash cams recording. I have to disagree with your assessment that the Rexing was the best overall except for mounting problems. During your daytime drive, the Rexing video did seem to be a bit better than the Kingslim. But, at night, the Rexing had those annoying glares off the streetlights that were not apparent on the other three units. But, your summary confirmed my liking of the Kingslim best. Just look at the lettering on your shirt. The Kingslim is definitely superior in brightness and readability. It may have been the time of day and loss of lighting as the sun goes down. But, for twice the price, the Rexing shouldn't have degraded so much. Readability is important to get a license plate number in case of a drive-off. It makes the cop's job much easier to get the perp. Oh, I forgot to thank you for taking the time to make this video. There is just so much information that you can get from specifications. The best way to determine which model you like best is to try it out and you saved a lot of us the time and trouble.

    • @Mystery47 Good point.

    • I think that was the purpose of him standing in front of the car at the end to do his summary. You can see the difference in being able to read the lettering on his t-shirt. Actually, that was what convinced me that the Kingslim was the better unit. That and the Rexing had a weird glare off of oncoming bright lights that the other three units didn't have. Must be something in the lens, perhaps?

  • Thank you for great a review of dash cams! It has really helped me out. We are going on a road trip this year, so we wanted a dash cam. I came upon your review, and researched a few dash cams plus all five from your review. I decided to go with the Kingslim . I like that it has GPS, good picture quality, black and white rear facing cam, a suction holder, and a 32 GB mini SD card. The sound quality is a concern, but not enough to prevent my trying this dash cam out.

    MariSMariSپیش ماه
  • Aside from the price difference the reason they ship with such small microSD cards is that the larger memory size cards are harder to format in fat 32 which is what all of these cams require. I got one for my brother two years ago and purchased a 128GB microSD which was the max it would accept only to find it wouldn't work with anything other than fat 32 file format. Since Windows has been NTFS for the last several versions now it doesn't offer the ability to format in fat 32. Why all of these companies insist on staying with an archaic file format is beyond me but I had to download a trial version of a formatting software to get the 128GB card to function. As soon as it was fat 32 the cam recognized it immediately and began functioning.

  • I have a thinkware q800 pro for over a year. Overall it's a good dashcam but not perfect. I have front and rear set up with the cell link neo hardwired into my panel (so it charges to 100% within 30 minutes) I have that for the awesome buffered parking mode. Up to 36 hours.(buffered meaning it catches second before the motion too) I recommend the cpl to reduce dashboard glare. Again overall it is a good camera and does catch a lot. Main gripe is at the price point and resolution I expect to read the license plate clearly most of the time even on angle. Unfortunately it can be difficult to make out. Never an issue with parking mode though. License plates are clear. I had a cheap tao dashcam with no bells or whistles but the video was damn awesome no matter the angle. So I used it on trips to take with me.

  • I would go with the Rexing, yes it's higher in price but has the better view, night vision in color, front/rear camera and just like security cameras for your home. If you go cheap you get what you pay for and it will coast you more out of pocket to replace it vs get the more pricier camera(s).

  • those sticky mounts are better if you plan on permanently mounting them, because it's lower profile. using dental floss and some goo gone will get them off, and getting adhesive pads are quite cheap and easy. you're meant to pull a lot of these off of the mount, and take them with you.

Will be my frist one dash cam.

  • Sadly it seems like you're really biased against the Rexing. The only real complaint you have is the suction cup and from there on you just refuse to accept it. The night quality was 100% better than the others, at least what is shown in this video. Also, I am SOO glad it doesn't have a suction cup. It's super low profile, I don't even notice it. It's not like I move it around all the time, that makes no sense. I wouldn't swap it between cars or anything so really it feels like a more stable, 'permanent' solution.
