We put the BlackVue DR770X-2CH Truck to a test and found out that it captures the same like the rest of the DR770X series. With an upgraded Full HD Sony STARVIS image sensor, it records at a wide 139° view angle at a higher 60 frames per second to give the smoothest image quality under any light for its front camera. With twice the number of frames per second, motion blur is greatly reduced, giving you important license plate detail even in fast-moving objects.
Based on our test, what makes this different from the standard DR770X is its weather resistance. The external waterproof rear camera of the BlackVue DR770X-2CH Truck has a 137° angle of view and 2.1MP Sony STARVIS CMOS sensor augmented by 6 IR LEDs. The luminosity sensor detects ambient brightness, activating automatically the IR lights for clarity in total darkness.
We compared it to the VSYSTO 4CH Truck Dash Cam. In terms of configuration, VSYSTO has up to 4 channels, particularly on the front, rear, on the left and right sides. However, although it has 4 screenless cameras, we saw that it only has a 140-degree field of view which can be streamed simultaneously through a 7-inch LCD display monitor that comes with the package.
Some of us might think that having this 4-channel dash cam is better than the two-channel DR770X-2CH. While the BlackVue DR770X-2CH has the world-leading 2MP Sony STARVIS image sensor that delivers 1080P @ 60 FPS, the VSYSTO 4CH Truck dash cam is only equipped with a GC2053 or GalaxyCore image sensor, and the maximum frame rate is only 30 frames per second. Thus, expect unclear footage for all its cameras around.
Here's a review from Raymond that we found on the VSYSTO on Amazon. He installed it into his semi truck, and he found that his dash cam was too dark and hard to determine what was actually being viewed. This is why we're recommending the BlackVue DR770X-2CH instead because the Sony STARVIS image sensor has excellent night vision and can avoid these issues altogether. After all, you need a dash cam that works in all light situations, so that's why in our experience, we really like the DR770X-2CH. This especially applies t the IR rear camera, with excellent night vision.
