Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larry Life saver
I lost one of my kittens. I bought this to find him. Turns out he was under my old metal base sink in the kitchen. I found him with this inspection camera. I was able to bend it around and found him by the front of the base. I got him out and fed him.
I was going to buy this one anyway, but this was a good time to get it. It worked great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bull22 Inspection made simple
Camera worked well for what I used it. Inspected engine ports and pistons without tearing it apart. Light could be an adjustment knob to control glare on camera lens.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Skippy Worked great when it worked.
I bought one of these for the occasional peek into walls or above ceilings. Came in handy to find things that dropped between my desk and the wall. Unfortunately, after about 15 months of truly occasional use, the LED screen failed. The camera light turns on and dims via buttons but I get nothing on the monitor. So it is garbage now. Shortest lifespan of any electric or electronic tool I've ever owned. I did not expect that from Ryobi.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goldminer the neatest item I have bought at Home Depot
I have already used it to locate a cal board that fell behind a MCC at our mill. The only thing that it needs is a video out port or a built in DVR to record it on a micro SD card .I have check inside and there is room to add it in & there is a standard Video line between the camera head and the display

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TexasJay Will update with use
The description is misleading. The camera head is not 7mm wide, which would make it .2755 inches [a little more than a quarter of an inch]. It's more like 5/8" - a little too wide to fit down a spark plug hole, which is why I selected this one over the Rigid. The Rigid unit is about 3/4".
Controls are simple enough. On/off, the 180 degree view flip, a button for the 2x zoom, and a button to turn the light off and increase the amount of light.
The camera itself is on the end of a flexible tube. You cannot control the direction, so you need to fish the head in and know where you're going before hand.
For $100, not a bad tool, just know it is limited.
I'll update the review when I've had time to actually employ the unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobSchumacher Look up your nose!
This was an impulse buy with a gift card.
I intended to use it to inspect the insides of engines and firing chambers, but the camera housing is too long and doesn't flex in the right spot. (The last few inches of the arm)
However, it has proven useful in looking up my nose and ears.
A fun product for all!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Logan Great product and very useful
I've been wanting one of these for a couple of years now. I finally received one for Christmas this year. I dropped my iPad stylus down a floor air vent a few weeks ago and it went far enough I could not see it. I ran a magnet around without any luck. After guiding the camera down it I could immediately see it. I dropped a magnet down with the camera just like you see on those surgery shows and latched onto my lost stylus. Within 5 minutes I had retrieved it thanks to this camera. The camera head was a lot smaller than I expected which should make it easy to drill holes to slide it into for wall inspections. It seems like I'm always needing to check in an area I cannot get to, so this will be great. The picture is in clear and in color, both were things I wondered about before purchasing. I couldn't find examples of either anywhere. The adjustable light is a very nice feature and really light up an area. The flexible arm is easy to bend and rigid enough to guide guide without it bending on its own. I'm not sure you can beat this product for the price.
