The HD Cube Cam is a small, black, wireless camera in the shape of a cube. It's a motion-activated device which apparently records very clear audio. The camera has a rechargeable battery built into it, and also a USB port and an SD card slot. HD Cube Cam is small enough to be placed somewhere fairly discrete or worn on your clothing using the clip included. This allows for hands-free filming of different events and situations.
The cost of HD Cube Cam is $19.99 plus $9.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second HD Cube Cam at the discounted price of only $9.99 for a total price of $39.97.

This is a small, black camera in the shape of a cube. It allows users to film their home or another location by placing it somewhere in the room or clipping it on their clothing to film an event while hands-free. While it advertises as being wireless, it means wireless in that it doesn't need to be plugged into to function thanks for the internal battery. This camera is not wifi enabled.
This small device has a built-in battery which is rechargeable. Naturally having a rechargeable battery saves time and is quite convenient.
For night filming, the camera includes a night vision LED feature with 6 infrared LED lights. This allows for night filming and makes the camera very useful for security purposes. For example, you can have it pointed at the backyard to see if anyone tries to break in.
The camera does recording on an endless loop. There's up to 24 hours of filming available on HD Cube Cam.
This device doesn't run continuously. HD Cube Cam is motion-activated, meaning that it only turns on when it senses motion within its range of view. That way you don't waste film unnecessarily when there's nothing relevant to film.
HD Cube Cam includes a USB port, which makes for easy and convenient downloading of the footage. The SD card slot is for the SD card, which allows the small device to have such a high memory capacity.
In one-touch picture mode, the camera takes still pictures just like your cell phone camera. Apparently, the camera takes very clear photos.
The camera can be mounted on the wall easily and quickly, for surveillance of the surrounding room. You can also mount it on an outside wall, or on your car to be used as a dashcam.
The manufacturer claims that the audio in this device is crystal clear. Clear audio could be very important if you're filming an event, less so if you're trying to catch a porch pirate but still useful.
The camera is compact and light enough to take with you anywhere. You can use the clip included with your purchase to attach it to your shirt, and it won't weigh you down. It's apparently so light you'll forget all about it.
This product really is priced very low, so much so that you wonder why it's being sold so cheaply. However, at such a low cost it's more than worth giving it a try if you're interested in this camera.
You won't have to read over some complex instructions in order to figure out how to use this product. The usage of this product will be easy for anyone who has even a basic understanding of technology. There's nothing new or complex here, and it's a very user-friendly camera.
Having a compact camera like this can certainly provide you with added security, without a high cost. At this price, you could have a cam monitoring both the back and front of your house. You could also wear one sometimes if you wanted to make sure you had a filmed record.
The company is offering a 30-day money-back guarantee, minus shipping costs. If you're dissatisfied with the product for any reason, you can return it within 30-days of your original purchase date for a refund.
The website doesn't clarify whether the camera is able to zoom in on certain things. You don't seem to be able to do that manually. That's something that you do have when you're filming on a cell phone.
They really don't say whether this camera actually pivots around in response to movement or whether it simply films what's directly in front on it. This point really isn't clear. It's a lot less useful if it doesn't move from side to side.
Although the camera is compact, it's not really small enough to keep completely secret. You could place it in the shadows as the product website suggests, but it would be hard to totally hide. Nor could you hide it if you attached it to clothing; it's too big.
With these types of cameras which are designed to be more discrete than a cell phone or larger camera, there is always the chance that they'll be used with ill intent. It's not necessarily always ethical to film someone without their knowledge, and many people will use it for this purpose. It could be that the safety benefits outweigh these moral questions. It's something that does need to be considered when putting out a product like this.
On a related issue, many people do not like being filmed, either with or without their knowledge. When you go out wearing a device like this, you are risking making people around you feel uncomfortable. They may or may not verbally object, but you can be certain that there will be some people who will feel that way.
On any small camera like this one, the controls are naturally going to be small and not easy to maneuver. That's one thing about this type of mini device that can be frustrating.
The big competition is the Polaroid Pawaka mini camera. HD Cube Cam has the same features, including motion sensor, night vision, good audio, SD slot, and USB drive. It's true that the price is slightly higher than our product, although it's more or less the same. However, the recording time on the Polaroid is only 100 minutes, which is a significant difference from the 24 hours offered by HD Cube Cam.
There's a fancy camera like this one called Lume Cube Air LED Light. This product is 3 times the price of the other two cameras mentioned. The added value is that it's waterproof and it uses Bluetooth technology. It also has adjustable brightness, and other related features, and includes a tripod.
