    "I love...WOW !!...I'm a fairly new GoPro user and have a couple older models I decided to order from GoPro directly but customer service is horrible so I turned to bestbuy what a great experience I was able to get a good price with the sale included a very nice Sd card and best of all Same day pickup .......I purchased for my husband after returning a dash cam (the installation seemed too complicated) and just used a go pro mount on his dashboard and it works perfectly as a dash cam and now we have the option to use the cameras elsewhere too."

    "I like...Hero 6...I do have a GoPro Karma as well that I have been using with my hero 5 and now the Hero 6 I have noticed that the GPS works better, meaning I don't have to calibrate it as often and it finds GPS with less interfearance messages....Being able to record with a touch of the record button without having to first turn on the device, as well as telling it to start recording without having to turn it on first is awesome."

    "Love it...Love it....It is a fantastically capable device that has no trouble keeping up with fast action as is customary of the renowned action cam line, but a shockingly high price and only a couple convenience features make this a tough sell to all but the most devoted action videographers....I did not get to test the GoPro Hero 7 for what it is best at, which is faster action videos, and I am sure it is great for this purpose, and I am sure the improved Video Stabilization will result in better action videos."
