Transcend DrivePro 200 Dash Cam – Our Review

Released in late-2013 by Transcend (Taiwanese memory card giant) the DrivePro 200 is an awesome dashboard camera that’s extremely dependable and equally easy to set up and use. A 16GB Class 10 memory card comes FREE with each DrivePro 200 and the dash cam supports up to 32GB memory card.

It’s got everything that a modern day dashboard camera has such as loop recording, date and time stamp in video, parking mode, G-Sensor etc. Apart from all this there are some really awesome features that we’re going to discuss below so just read on.

There’s a big button which you can hit anytime if you wish to avert that video footage from being overwritten via loop recording.

One thing that we liked the most about DrivePro 200 is its awesome video quality. Thanks to the row of 7 glass lenses, that enables it to record excellent day time and very good night time 1080p (Full HD) videos @ 30 FPS (Check These Sample Videos). Its viewing angle of 160° with huge f/2.0 aperture is impressive and greater than other dashboard cameras.

Furthermore, you can set your DrivePro 200 to record 1, 3, or 5 minute long videos. We suggest you set the duration to 1 minute as that creates smaller and handy video files (.MOV format).

This dash cam has got a 2.4” display screen and we’re sure that you’ll absolutely love it; it’s very easy to use and does a pretty good job of replaying recorded videos, displaying camera settings and menu etc.

Using the menu is a breeze as its very user friendly. Users also report that it’s stupidly simple and easy to setup this dash cam. All you need to do is to power it up and set the date and time (only once); rest all is done automatically.

Another rare and cool feature is the WiFi function. With built in WiFi functionality and DrivePro app it’s super easy to manage your DrivePro 200 directly from a tablet or smart phone. The app allows to playback recorded videos, view live video and change camera configuration etc.

The Transcend DrivePro 200 is backed by a 2-year warranty.

Transcend DrivePro 200 Dash Cam – Video Samples

We request you to view the video in full screen and choose the maximum resolution; this will give you a better understanding of video quality captured by the dashboard camera.

Day Time Video Sample:

As we’ve mentioned earlier that day time video quality of Transcend DrivePro 200 is pretty kick ass. Every detail is crisp and the dash cam does excellent job during day time.

Night Time Video Sample:

The night time video quality is much better than most other dash cams in this price range. Even during low light condition, you can really make out a lot of details for the above video footage.

All in all, a very good job!
