I'm not sure how the TruthCam got a bad name, all of mine (TruthCam 35's) are awesome and the battery life is amazing. I can run it the entire season practically on one set of batteries. Pictures look good both day and night.

Many, many people reporting many, many problems with Primos products.

But again, you may get some good units and absolutely love them.

BSK, I have not heard of the supercharged but I have the CR (close-range) version and it takes good daytime pics and battery life is great so far (2,000 pics with 85% battery on last pull). Night pics are blurry. I wonder how the supercharged version is with night time focus.

In chasingame reviews of the cams, I noticed blurry night pics on other Primos products. But the night pics on their test Supercharged were amazing.

It isn't that a few problems have been reported, but a HUGE number of problems reported. Best estimates are, some of these companies have over a 30% return rate of cameras sold. That's way beyond acceptable. I don't know how manufacturers with such poor quality control can stay in business, other than just extraordinary demand for the type of product they are selling, which is the case with trail-cams.

I've experienced a greater than 30% failure rate (if you consider run-away triggering quickly filling a card a failure, if you consider the date reverting back to 01/01/xyear a failure, if you consider white-out and pink pics a failure, etc.) with a variety of recent Bushnell models.

Yet my biggest disappointment has been with Cuddeback and Uway.
Over about a 2-yr period, I experienced a 100% failure rate on six (6) Uway cams. And in the case of the Uways, "failure" meant totally not working at all on 4 of 6 (with the other 2 "sometimes" working, "sometimes" not, "always" unreliable). I started out with 2 Uways. The other 4 were warranty replacements, all 6 of which failed within the first few weeks of use.

I experienced 100% failure on 6 Cuddebacks within a year. Their customer service was no help. If I could buy 100 of them at $1 a piece right now I'd pass. RecoynX will spoil you quick.

Mike, I share your sentiments.
Although I might give $1 apiece just to use them for target practice. That would be about the only way I could FEEL better about Cuddebacks. \:\)

Ironically, the earlier models of Cuddebacks were (at the time) among the best of both 35mm film and digital cams made. I still have some of their 35mm film cams that still work great if one doesn't mind being limited to 24-36 pics and processing film. (I also have one of the 1st Cuddeback digital cams that still works.) Seems it was the year they came out with the "NO Flash" model that everything went downhill with Cuddeback.
