Car Camera: Dengo

Having a car camera is in trend and beneficial. We are really not the type who would just jump in the bandwagon, but we found it useful, so we got one. Firstly, as we’re expats we could not speak the local language effectively and so explaining things is really frustrating at times. Secondly, nowadays some people would do or say anything just to get away with something, so it is better to have a piece of evidence.
We have scouted stores for the right one, by the way there are many choices to choose from, but eventually settled for Dengo Cam which is only available online. So what got us decided on this?Here are the reasons.

  1. It is a dual camera for a little over $56, great deal we thought. It has a 140 and 120 wide angle lenses for front and back respectively.
  2. It has an auto on and off, loop recording, and motion detection features.
  3. It has a built-in battery and a FHD recording resolution.
  4. Plus, installation is easy and the delivery is right on time.

Wow!

But there’s the catch.
Although the image quality is great, the recording lags all the time. We tried changing the memory card from a lowly 8gb to its maximum capacity as advertised of 32gb, then back to 8gb, and then to an even lower 2 gigabyte, it still lags. It is important that your car cam does not lag. What if an important thing happens right on the moment it lags and so that won’t be recorded.

Another is that it does not loop automatically as advertised. We found this out the hard way. We got bumped from behind and the driver initially denied it but immediately “agreed” when we told him it’s on camera. Looking through the recordings we found out that it has stopped recording two days prior to the accident. Good thing he didn’t ask for it. Whew!

We’ve learnt that aside from image and recording quality these two features mentioned above are total essentials.

Now, we know what to look for in the car cam.
Well, if something is too good to be true, it probably isn’t ……….

Product Review: AJ Sound System

For the first time my family bought a Thailand made sound system, AJ.  In the past 10 years here, it has always been either Philips or Samsung.  But for whatever reason we just decided to try AJ.

Anyway, what about it?

Well, for the price of 2,990 baht (85$), the sound quality is the closest thing you get to a Sony. That’s right.  Great, isn’t it?

It has a two-tone color design with wooden panels.  It looks massive, heavy, and simple without fancy stuff.  Features include AUX, DVD, USB, Bluetooth, and FM radio. It’s a 5.1 ch surround system starting with a beautifully crafted sub-woofer, left and right speakers, left and right surround speakers and a center speaker all of which are separately controlled by four knobs.

However, there is one quirk that can be annoying at times.  It does not have a general knob for the volume.  So what I’m saying is that, you would have to turn all the knobs (all four of them) to adjust the volume.  Just imagine if the baby stirs a bit and you’d have to hurriedly lower the volume or else your ME time is over.

Now, I don’t know if this is how it is at the present modern-day sound systems but for sure it was not like this with our previous.  Anyhow, apart from this everything else works very well.  It may not be the best looking, fancy appliance there is but in terms of functionality, it is unquestionably great.  It means business.  What you see is what you get.  There are no compatibility issues, which was the case with our previous sound systems.  AJ works perfectly with other electronics like TVs, laptops, and mobile phones.

Have you had any experience with Thailand made products? How was it?
