DV950A - The world's smallest DVR
Bigger isn't always better. Compact size can be critical, but it's useless without a top-notch performance. Some little DVR's claim to be the world's smallest. Not only are they larger than this unit, they don't deliver nearly as good an image. What you record onto this next-generation DVR you can play back on a full-sized screen with no loss of quality. This supports up to a 4 GB mini SD card for up to 14 hours of high-resolution video, more than three times as much at lower resolution. And you can easily tuck it away in a pocket.

Most DVR's in the market can record video at320X480 @15 FPS, one other model can do as much as 640X480 @ 15 to 18 FPS. Some claim that you can upgrade the firmware and get better resolution (that's simply not possible as resolution cannot increase without degradation of the image, it's like blowing a balloon with writing on it, sure you can make it bigger but past some point the image will degrade).

Resolution simply put is the SIZE of the image of 640 pixels horizontal by 480 pixels vertical, which is perfect as these just happen to be your PC's VGA standards.

Review submitted for Mini Gadgets Inc DV950A World's Smallest DVR (MGIDV950A)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Compact, Simple operation, Standardized Battery, LCD Display, Fantastic price, Nice case and accessories
Cons: Video compression fixed, Weak User Manual, Uses Mini-SD cards
Other Comments: Fantastic little DVR. I really only tried to use the DVR to record from ONE video camera for which I needed the DVR. I don't know if it will record from a wide variety of video inputs. Output to a TV may be problematic as I was unable to get my HDTV to display from the unit using standard RCA composite video input jacks on the TV. The recording works well, though -- a bit too much compression perhaps. The DVR uses mini-SD cards -- not micro -- and those are a bit rare. I plan to use a kit that has a micro-SD card and adapters to mini and full-size SD card slots. The DVR comes with a very nice case and all the parts you need except for the mini-SD. Works perfectly for what I need it for -- recording from an old micro-color camera rather than using a camcorder. Files transfer fine to a PC and are readily viewable on the PC.
