How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

With no shortage of action camcorders on the market, the Drift HD Ghost helps separate itself from the crowd with its two-inch LCD screen. CNET says the LCD screen "makes a big difference, not only when setting up your shots, but for changing settings, and quickly playing back clips." In terms of video quality, Laptop Magazine says the quality is "good, but not the best", while Wired felt "satisfied with the footage." The Drift HD Ghost also has a battery that Laptop Magazine says is "the best among action cameras they've tested." Despite having an LCD screen and impressive battery life, the video quality and higher cost make it hard to recommend the Ghost over the cheaper GoPro Hero3.
