GoPro Accessories OEM VS Cheap Knock off Version

Should you buy OEM or cheap knock off parts for your GoPro Hero camera? What’s the difference? In all honestly not that much. You’d actually be surprised at the quality of the knockoff parts available for your hero camera.

I’ve purchased a lot of OEM accessories and have little to no complaints about the fit and function. On the other hand the only real complaint I have about knock off parts is the build quality. The quality of the materials used is not as nice as OEM parts. The knock off parts still work as designed they just don’t have the same build quality of their OEM counterparts.

I would not hesitate for a minute to purchase and use more knock off parts. I recommend parts to friends and family that do not want to pay often times the extremely high prices for OEM parts. 

Have you purchased knock off parts? Have complaints? Love em? Let us know which parts you’ve purchased and hate or love..

I’ve been reading and watching different reviews and I’m torn. I’m having a hard time making the $400 purchase. Three months ago I bought the Gopro Hero 3 and thought I was good to go for at least a year. Well what feels like right after I made my purchase they went and upgraded what I thought was the latest and greatest.

One of the review videos that pretty much made my mind up or at least helped is the video below. If you are on the fence about buying the new camera from GoPro, maybe the video below will be able to persuade you one way or the other. It sure helped me.

Whatever you choose you can’t go wrong. I absolutely love my Hero 3 and with the price difference and sales going on lately I might buy another three before I buy a 3+.

Are you going to buy or have you already bought the newest GoPro Hero 3+? Either way leave a comment below and let us know.
