Ambarella mini 0801; mini 0805 and Nextbase 522GW
I often see "another min 0805 failed again" "got the dreaded red light these are so unreliable"

I have owned 5 of these of probably 3 - 6 years of age

To date only one has failed

I think they are quite a reliable unit that can be relied on to just get on with the job, just forums may make you think otherwise.

Issue I have had is sandisk SD cards becoming read only - but thats a well known issue and why I never buy sandisk

Same; no issues with reliability here - as long as one sticks with 20160317 firmware. I tried the latest = brick. I hope to recover it. However, in 3 years and 3 cams - no problems to speak of. In fact, I just ordered 4 more...

10 years, many dashcams
I think many scream fire and brimstone, and really its just their memory card that died.
