Dash Camera Reviews and Complaints
Lazada Philippines - Car Dash Cam and Reversed Cam
CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS, package arrived Oct. 8 2018, after 2 hours we went to the installer for intallation, we found out the reverse camera is not working, 100% NOT WORKING... I immediately reported to Lazada (attached the screenshot convo), I explained that due of installation fee for dash cam + reverse cam (Php 1000) I cannot return all items but only the rear camera... LAZADA AGREED and proceed to send back the item, which sent Oct. 8 2018 past 5pm , .... guess what? today Oct. 12 2018 lazada customer service and said no replacement because I didnt sent all items back?, e mails replied also stating replacement reject?
first of all I explained properly that I will be wasting installation fee of 1000 pesos, and I thought lazada customer service note down for consideration.
you sent me a defect item (reverse cam) and expect me to spend 2000 pesos total for installation unistall and install ?
this is the second time Lazada messing with us.... seriously ?
Tophatter - Poor quality products and zero customer service!
Update by user Jun 18, 2018
Since I contacted the companies involved, both Tophatter and the manufacturing company some two months ago, I have received zero contact or followup of any kind whatsoever! Tophatter is a joke.
They are the sellers of Chinese junk and they have no interest in quality care and service to their consumer base. I am done and have deleted their app from my devices.

I had bid on, and had won numerous products on Tophatter. After receiving all of the products I realized one thing; they are simply cheap Chinese junk!
Poor quality, with bad packaging. What I mean is every package we received was in a soft bubble pack from China. Unfortunately, everyone was smashed in one way or another! One, a Duro DVR Road Dash Video Camcorder dash cam, came out of the smashed box with a broken window suction mounting bracket.
It literally feel a part coming right out of the box!!
When I attempted to contact Tophatter, it was impossible to reach them. I was able to get an email to go through to them. Their response was they are looking into it. That was over a month ago, with no further follow up.
So simply put, save your money and your time and buy USA from a reputable company, with quality products. Because Tophatter is not that company.
Car Toys - Customer complaint
Purchased dash cam on 4/8/18. Camera stopped working same evening as purchased.
Returned to store 4/9/18. Store reset camera. 4//10/18 camera not working again. Called store told to bring back 4/14/18 for inspection.
Returned to store on 4/14/18 requesting refund because camera not only did not function but did not record at night which is specifically what I requested when I purchased this camera that your sales person said would record any night vandalism of my vehicle. The camera does not have this capability. So when I returned the camera your company refused to return my $110 labor fee I paid for nothing. I also received poor customer service from the unprofessional, rude sales rep at your hurst tx store by the name of Shawn.
Poor customer service skills. Rude! This experience was horrible. I will not do business with Car Toys in the future nor will I recommend your business.
I would like to receive a call from your corporate office ASAP. 817-724-7523.

Desertcart - Wasting of hard earned money
It was very dismay experienced. I purchased dash cam worth 122 aed plus del chrge not included.
& writen on their adds as imported fr USA & so, i was expecting a good quality, i but it is purely low quality a product fr china. I would say maybe its only 50 aed or less.
Aside fr packaging box is not sealed when it is delivered. I rather recommend souq.com
NewFrog.com HATE Americans!!!
NF2017122607375932587 The ideal solution is for NewFrog to fill & ship the order at the price of $12.36. I thought you said a price of $30 (FS).
I think that is too high. NEWFROG.COM ask me to submit a solution to this problem. I am willing to pay $25 (Free Shipping), not $12.36. The $25 price is twice the original price of $12.36.
NEWFROG.COM says that THEY want to bring this problem to a close, I believe that this solution is fair for NEWFROG.COM and fair to the customer. Should this problem be taken up with NEWFROG.COM higher management?
I waiting for NEWFROG.COM to reply or your solution to this problem. when I post anything about newfrog.com on Facebook, they (newfrog) marks it as SPAM so readers will no see the bad comments and bad reviews.
Tophatter - Think your getting what's Pictured? Think again!
I have bought several things on TopHatter, one of the items was an outdoor solar light the photo showed a whole set of at least 8 to 10 I received one and I put in a support ticket telling them that this was false advertising they refunded my money. Another item I purchased stated rear car camera and monitor and all I got was the wiring and not even the camera or anything else I contacted them and told them I did not receive what was advertised not even the camera and I was also told that the monitor was not included although the advertisement for this clearly showed Monitor and rear backup camera. I have canceled some orders after I noticed when I went in to pay that I could pick a color and I would receive one although it showed five pairs of socks or other similar items and I told them again this is false advertising there have been very few things that are actually worth the money and most of it is cheaply made.
Gearbest - Shoddy quality and non existent customer service!!!
i bought a few items, dash cam, quadcopter, speed camera alert device....and guess the dash cam although working does not loop the videos, checked online and even their you tube installation manual and they skipped this part...clever gearbest...the speed camera device is only in russian...great help...lol...and the quadcopter flies for 7 minutes before the 25min battery dies....so all in all alot of *** on sale, i had issues with all 3 things i bought. dont bother, i think they dump poor quality of defective merchandise.
i will never use them again...and by the way, those copy paste messages to resolve disputes dont really get resolved...i waited 3 months and still wasnt resolved, lesson learnt !! just dont bother, use another sales site....use at your own peril !!
Gearbest - Garbage dash cam
I bought a dash cam from Gearbest. The instructions were written in broken English.
They were probably written by someone in China. I have NEVER been able to get this camera to operate correctly. Then, after messing with it for a month or so, the battery died. Now the camera won't operate at all even when hooked up with the USB cord.
It does not matter if it is plugged into my car or my laptop. This camera is total junk. It just immediately goes to a storage panel and gets locked up. I tried contacting Gearbest and got ZERO response.
DO NOT BUY FROM GEARBEST... MORE LIKE GEAR WORST.
Gearbest - Dash Camera Review
They don't even care about any thing as soon as they steel your money they are done. I ordered a dash cam, in couple of hours I realize that its knock off item, try to cancel the order, ofcourse you can't do it because there is no way you can cancel, as soon as you click on buy you are done, my order status said it has been dispatched with tracking number but there is no information associated with the tracking number, how its possible that they dispatced the item in couple of hours, try to contact customer service like you talking to wall, no solution. Long story short don't waste your mony and time, gearbest big scam.
