To be the same, all its components would need to be the same, not just the plastic case. You can't always tell just by looking at something.
If you are looking for the convenience of a dual-channel, I'd say go for it. If just video quality, the A119 isn't as good as the A119S and the A129 at night but IMO it's still pretty good.great review, thinking about getting this model as an upgrade to the A119. anyone think its worth it? you go down in resolution but perhaps up in night-time video quality?
Thanks, that will save me some money as the motion sensor appears to work flawlessly on the A129 so far.
