BlackVue DR400G-HD Review

Blackvue's first entry into the dash cam market is the DR400G-HD. This product is slim and discrete while having very nice recording capabilities and special features such as parking mode, and continuous loop recording.

Features

  • Records at 1080p @ 30 FPS
  • Continuous loop recording
  • Built in G-Sensor and event recording
  • Parking mode and motion detection
  • Easy to use

The DR400G-HD records at 1080P at 30FPS. It has a 2MP CMOS sensor, and comes with some very special features. It comes with two modes of recording, normal and event. In normal recording, the DR400G-HD continuously records, and loops arond when it reaches the end of the memory provided from the SD card. In the case of an accident or any impacts, G-sensors inside the dashcam will be triggered, causing the DR400G-HD to go into "event recording". During event recording, everything is stored separately, and will be in a folder specific for any impacts/accidents so it does not get overwritten by accident. The DR400G-HD also has a parking mode by motion detection, which allows for recording when the car is hardwired and ignition is turned off.

Design

The design of the DR400G-HD is very nice and sleek. It is very slim in design, with a nice grey finish. Very premium look and feel.

Flaws

The DR400G-HD is known for its overheating issue, which has been fixed a long time ago. All products after the DR400G-HD by BlackVue has no overheating issues at all.

  1. Shoots in 1080P at 30FPS
