GoPro Hero3+ review of cost versus Hero4

By Peter Chubb - Nov 27, 2014

When the new GoPro Hero4 was released it caused a huge dilemma for people because they never knew if they should spend a little more to get this new model, or save a few dollars and go for the older GoPro Hero3+ Silver?

More often than not the price between the two was not that different, and so an upgrade to the newer model seemed the wiser choice. However, with the current Black Friday sales started it would seem the decision has now been made a little tougher.

If you were to go for the newer model, then you will have to pay $399.99 at Best Buy. However, the older model is going for $249.99, a saving of $50. Okay, so we know that means there is a difference of $150 and some of you feel it is worth paying the extra to get the Hero 4, but we have not finished yet.

As a way to make things a little tougher for you, Best Buy has an amazing price on a GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition Camera, which comes with a 16GB memory card and a GoPro LCD Touch BacPac. If you were to purchase those two accessories separately then you would have to pay a further $184.98 on top of the price.

The question is, would you rather pay the extra money and have a new GoPro that has far better specs and features and so helps to produce better results, or go for its predecessor and get more for your money if you do not mind sacrificing recording quality?
