X170 Quck Reference Guide
Some good, some bad Review by Bill
More than one file format
Durable - dropped it while riding and it survived. Was quite impressed.
Says it supports up to 8 gig sdcards, but I have a 16 gig and that works fine.
AA batteries!?!?!?!? are you kidding me? The ones that came with the unit that were your garden variety cheap alkaline lasted a little more than three minutes. So this unit is useless unless you invest heavily on NiMH rechargeable and a good charger. This brings the price up by a good 50%. Or you can by the top of the line camera non-chargeable lithium.
Over all I do like it. For the price it is a very good entry into this type of camera. (Posted on 15/05/2010)
Drift X170: Action Camera Review Review by Philip
It's not high-def (although I'm sure you can find one on this site) but it's cheap and offers lots of ways to hook it up. The wireless wrist remote is a nice touch. (Posted on 19/04/2010)
Good camera for the price Review by Bleman
I bought this camera about a year ago. It has worked well, I use it mostly to film Ski Cross, the footage is pretty good and looks good on the computer. A little shaky but overall not too bad.
Batteries last all day on the ski hill, and the variety of mounts you get with the camera is great.
But the footage is so cool that you get with these cams, its almost worth it to spend the extra money and go HD
A good head cam for those on a budget, but if you can stretch it go HD (Posted on 17/04/2010)
