Transcend 16 GB DrivePro 50 Car Video Recorder : Good quality videos

I’ve been looking at the various types of these cameras for quite a while, trying to decide on the best buy. The general consensus is the quality of the display on a lot of the makes is not very good and if they are not, then there is not much point in having one if you are trying to prove you are the innocent party in a road traffic accident. However the quality of the display on the drivepro 200 is very good indeed. Played back on a 27′ hd television the picture quality is incredible. The only feature i didn’t like about it was the supplied stick-on bracket for mounting the camera on the windscreen. I therefore purchased their suction mount for an extra £6. I’ve mounted the whole assembly behind the rear view mirror. This position has two advantages, it’s not obvious to the opportunist thief and it does not obstruct my view out of the windscreen.

Excellent value, and great recording. This is my second drive pro 200. Excellent value, and great recording. Also i kept the instruction book, from the first one. Excellent showing, and explaining the different settings on the camera. New instruction booklet is terrible. Just has a number beside each button. But no instruction as to which setting is best. Really glad i kept the first instructions.

This is ‘ the ‘ dashcam to buy. Superior images and ready to go. If you want an excellent , ready for court proceedings, (slightly enhanced fish eye view recording) then yes this is what you get. I recently replaced a cheepo and functioning dashcam with this product and it is night and day. Straight swap at the power source was the same mini usb switched cable. I replaced the 32 gb microsd card with a128gb version , formatted it and it work like a treat. The quality of recording is incredible, almost professional quality ( was in the business for a number of years) and interacts with the vlc player oi have not explored the wifi side of it as i didnt buy it for that purpose and its simply far quicker to remove the micro sd card copy the contents and replace. Watch at you leisure if thats your thing but hay ho remember, if you need the footage for court in the event of any proceeding the original source of the recording , your large and expensive sd card will be taken as a production (evidence). So you chose at the camera comes with a perfectly acceptable 32gb card. The real measure of a dashcam is what kind of images are produces at night. Here are the specifications for the Transcend 16 GB DrivePro 50 Car Video Recorder:

My first dashcam and very pleased with it indeed. I purchased this after seeing the review on techmoan – [. excellent site by the way. The dashcam is small, compact and easy to use. Once you have set your chosen settings it just gets on with the job. Video quality is very good, but it does produce a little mount vibration on pot-holed roads, of which the uk has a good number, even on motorways(). The video file format is mp4, which produces quite large files, but that is only a minor problem if you are down-loading to edit into a longer video, otherwise it isn’t really a concern. If you want to add any real time commentary, depending upon where you mount it – mine is left of the driving mirror – you might need to speak very loudly. Of course commentary can be added if you are going to edit clips together later. ]

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Well worth the money
  • DrivePro 200, Good purchase.
  • Well worth it. Better than my more expensive cam!

This video is very easy to operate but unlike myself you must ensure you use the adaptors that come with it. I tried to use a usb cable in a ford fiesta and could not get it to record. When i reverted to the cig lighter socket all worked fine.

Product brill only one draw back unit gets very hot when been on a while would not recommend leaving it in car unattended.

Very high quality video in day or nighttime. If you need evidence for an incident then there’s no point having blarey footage. This camera gives pinsharp images. It is small and unobtrusive when mounted on your screen.

My first one has performed perfectly and this is now replacing the unreliable rear view dash cam.

Amazing piece of kit, the camera is so crisp and clear and the setup takes no time. The connection is amazing and software works a treat. Ive tried other cheaper brands and do not come close. Had to buy the additional clips and bits but hey its worth the money. No need to read a hundred reviews.

Had the drivepro in regular use for some time now and am still very happy with it. Like the slim profile and clear controls and their menus- which i found easy to navigate. Picture quality is ok for me – number plates can be read ok. (had an incident with a stone hitting the windscreen and the drivepro replay (on my computer) gave a clear image of the trajectory of the stone and it’s likely origin ). Mild disappointment that it comes with a self adhesive screen mount – which i changed for a standard suction one for move flexibility in placing on windscreen.

Have to set the time and date every day which is annoying. Night use can’t read any number plates. Good picture during day light.

This is a great piece of kit, it looks better than some of the other dash cams on the market and works well. It’s not too big to take up a lot of the windscreen, but it isn’t too small that the screen on it is pointless, but obviously you won’t see great detail on it. The camera is pretty easy to set up and integrates well with the app which is also pretty easy to use too. The only negative which really isn’t that bad is the quality of the playback when done on the phone through the app, but this is expected when transferring a large file wirelessly. I have had a cheaper dascam before, but it broke, but if you buy cheap, expect to pay twice. Overall i have so far had no problems and would recommend this dashcam.

Transcend drivepro 200 – fantastic dash cam. Fantastic birthday present from my mum. Wish i’d purchased one years ago. I can see why the transcend drivepro 200 has such great revireviews. Easy to install and operate. I consciously drive in a more considerate manner and have the confidence that any incidents that occur in front of me will be captured on the dash cam.

Goluk T1 Smart Car Dash Cam Camera : which produced great quality images

We bought this to replace the failing unit in our driving school car as we specifically wanted a camera without a screen and with a low profile permanent bracket to keep the lens close to the screen for better picture quality – sucker mounts can’t do this. Set up was …

Snooper DVR-1HD Mini HD Dash Cam, let down.

For the measurement of the camera and the reduced value, i am impressed at the high-quality. Photos in both equally day and night time are extremely distinct. The gps locks on pretty swiftly, even though in some cases does wander at times, putting me somewhat off the highway, but i …

Transcend DrivePro 220 Onboard DashCam : into the darkness

It is really a great digital camera and ready to use out of the box. My initially dash cam so hard to compare versus nearly anything else. Not certain i would go with the lane departure or automobile in entrance protection characteristic yet again. The lane departure goes off when …
