Users Report That it is Fairly Priced

Eight people who purchased it concluded that it was good value for money.

  • Considering the size and price it's pretty good! Shame it splits videos into 5 minute clips though…
  • Great for the occasions when you don't want to be worried about an expensive camcorder…
  • Amazing price quality…
  • Great cam for the price, make sure to flash the firmware…
    David G. (Amazon) - February 2016
  • The only downside to it is the price of the accessories, they are really overpriced for what they are…
    HC (Amazon) - April 2015
  • Really you'll need to invest in some of the accessories, such as the tripod mount, to really get the most out of this dinky device and that's a real pity as it means the price immediately increases…
  • However they can be purchased very cheaply online if you look around…
  • It's an interesting device at this price point.
    Thomas Duff (Amazon) - January 2015
  • The video quality is great for the price…
    Timmicus (Amazon) - August 2015

Users Report Great Battery Life

Two people who bought this camcorder considered that it had a good battery life.

Users Report That it is Robust

Three customers who reviewed this camcorder thought it was well made.

  • You also can't help feeling that the lens is somewhat exposed during handling too, although it's recessed into the Cube there's nothing actually protecting it, although to be fair it's made from glass and not from more easily scratched plastic…
    Techpuppy (Amazon) - January 2015
  • You don't need either of these, as it comes with a built in powerful magnet, which will enable you to put it on many surfaces…
    Martin Turner (Amazon) - December 2014
  • The CUBE's case is sturdy and seems pretty shockproof, with a grip proof finish…
  • Feels solidness when holding it and looks well made…
    Matinik (Amazon) - August 2015
  • Built in magnet on the bottom of the camera comes in handy sometimes…
    Matinik (Amazon) - August 2015
  • The camera has been slow to transfer media, poor in quality (looks damaged) and also having huge microphone issues…
    Jon (Amazon) - January 2016
  • It's weatherproof -- not waterproof -- which makes it suitable to most outside uses, short of taking it underwater…

Customers Report a Good Quality Lens

Two owners wrote in their reviews that it had a good lens.

  • Cube locked in place and recorded 1080 very well, only slight problem was misting on lens centre due to temperature…
  • It has a lens on the front…
  • Quality is very good, very clear and sharp The wide angle lens 124 degree lens which gives a very big image from such a small thing Battery life recorded for a good 90 minutes on video Magnet on the camera for attaching to surfaces…
