BlackVue DR900S-2CH IR vs DR750S-2CH IR

The BlackVue DR900S-2CH IR is BlackVue’s latest and greatest flagship dash cam with infrared features, making it the top choice for recording the vehicle interior! Blackvue is one of the most well-known and largest dash cam manufacturers in the world, and a variety of their products are found in the premium market such as the DR750S and regular DR900S. BlackVue dash cams are one of our best selling products. We have carried BlackVue units for 7 years and will continue to do so due to the quality and support of their products.

The most important and basic function of a dash cam is to act as a silent witness. With its whopping 4K resolution front camera, equivalent to four times the pixel count and two times the resolution of full HD 1080p, the BlackVue DR900S-2CH IR is able to capture incidences and license plate numbers even better and clearer than before. In fact, the DR900S-2CH IR is currently the only infrared dash cam on the market, as of April 2019, with such a high video resolution.

When mentioning the BlackVue DR900S, we’re referring to all models in the DR900S range such as the DR900S-1CH (front only), DR900S-2CH (front and rear) as well as the DR900S-2CH IR (front and interior). This last unit has a secondary camera with infrared technology, allowing for video recording even under poorly lit conditions to a complete lack of light. This camera is thus meant to record the front and interior of the vehicle and should be mounted on the front windshield somewhere beside the front camera.

BlackVue markets the BlackVue DR900S-2CH IR as the selection for those who want the very best interior recording dash cam with zero compromises. However, how does it compare with the former BlackVue flagship, the DR750S-2CH IR?


OVERALL DESIGN

It’s clear that BlackVue has not swayed from its roots but, rather, continued with its simple yet sleek and discreet cylindrical design, similar to the DR750S.

The copper/rose-gold accents around the ring of the front lens does allow the DR900S a subtle but attractive change from its predecessors. The rear camera remains unchanged and is the same product between the two models.

The use of the same design means that is also nice for owners of the DR750S, as everything (mounts, wiring, etc.) is fully compatible with the DR900S. If one if upgrading from the DR750S to DR900S, only the front and rear cameras need to be swapped out but everything else is compatible.

DIFFERENT FEATURES

Video Quality

With the introduction of 4K Ultra HD resolution at 30fps for the front camera of the DR900S-2CH IR, it’s impossible to miss the vast improvement in video resolution when compared to the front unit of the DR750S-2CH IR’s 1080p Full HD at 60fps. The secondary cameras between the two models remain the same at 1080p Full HD at 30fps and utilizes the same parts.

The DR900S-2CH IR offers excellent video quality in the daytime with good dynamic range and minimal loss in optical clarity. The additional pixel count compared to any 1080P camera means the DR900S can capture more detail than other dash cams. License plates are captured in more detail and from further distances than before.

At night time, the BlackVue DR900S does well but does not have a huge difference in video quality as it does during day time recording, when compared to the DR750S. As always, however, BlackVue is constantly updating the firmware of its cameras, so perhaps in the future we will see a greater difference in relation to both cameras' nighttime performance.

Improvements are unchanged for the DR900S’ secondary camera as it shares the same excellent 1080p STARVIS unit as the DR750S. If you’re upgrading from a DR750S to a DR900S, both the wiring plus the front and rear camera mounts are therefore completely compatible with each other with no need to remount or rewire anything. However, you will need to change the mounts (the wiring is compatible) if you’re upgrading from the DR650.

Wi-Fi Connectivity

As with previous top of the line BlackVue products, both the DR900S-2CH IR and DR750S-2CH IR have the bells and whistles such as WiFi, which allows users to easily view and download footage as well as change settings right from your smartphone.

Both models support WiFI streaming and connectivity at 802.11n at 2.4Ghz. However, the DR900S steps it up a significant notch offering additional support for the much faster WiFi protocol of 802.11ac at 5Ghz. What this means is faster transfer rates for downloading video clips off the camera should there be an incident, as well as even smoother live streaming off the DR900S.

File Compression

A great new feature the DR900S-2CH IR employs to help keep file sizes down is a new compression algorithm known as H.265 HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding). It’s more efficient at compressing video and it means that file sizes with the 4K DR900S are the same as the 1080p DR750S, despite the significant improvement in resolution. This translates to the same amount of video files that can be saved to a microSD card, despite the increase in video resolution.

BlackVue Over-the-Cloud

Another feature that BlackVue excels in is its Cloud functionality. To date, no other dash cam manufacturer has the capability of what BlackVue can offer when it comes to Cloud features.

The ability to track the vehicle, view footage remotely and even receive notification on the user’s smartphones are just a few of the critical elements of the BlackVue Over the Cloud. Please note that this requires a mobile hotspot, whether tethered through a cellphone or a standalone WiFi hotspot device. You can read more about this here.

FINAL VERDICT

The BlackVue DR900S-2CH IR represents the first 4K infrared dash cam in the market from one of the leading dash cam manufacturers in the world. We like the impressive amount of details that the DR900S-2CH IR can capture in terms of video quality and functions, and this camera is the best choice for customers who want interior recording. Check out why all rideshare customers should have an interior-recording dash cam here. Fleet companies who are looking to monitor their drivers on the road should also have an interior-recording dash cam - check this out.

If you don't need the 4K resolution or the DR900S-2CH IR is out of your price range, the DR750S-2CH IR is still an excellent full HD camera, even though it has now had to hand over the crown to its successor. Nonetheless, it is still a great choice from one of the leading dash cam manufacturers in the market.

Excellent! 2nd time installing any electronics in my car(s)

I bought the Essential Install Package to install my Thinkware 1000 2-channel in my Ford F-150. I had only one previous experience of trying to install electronic equipment in a vehicle. The Essential Install Package is perfect and easy to use. Having no experience in running wires and hard-wiring connections to OEM fuse panels the kit made it easy. I completed my entire install in less than 2 hours. With the experience now I could probably reduce that time by nearly 50%.

Initial review: A-OK.

I bought this after testing out a budget Rove R2-4k LCD dash cam that sent me running for a better quality high-end unit. By that comparison standard, this DR900S-2ch is mind blowing.

Setup was particularly easy -- well, wiring can be a work-out as with all models, especially a rear-camera going into a hatch back -- but the moment I plugged it in, it all started working. I especially like the audio prompts, and the indicator light on the rear window camera; one glance in the rear view mirror and I know it's working, and yet not distracting. (the rear camera is very small)

I also love how incredibly secure the mounting is. My cheaper Rove unit mount was quite flimsy.

The power cables were also impressive -- with plugs that small, I was afraid they'd dislodge easily, but the design of the plugs are quite secure.

More time will tell, but after about two weeks now I have no complaints. I will likely buy a second 2ch unit soon.

Blackboxmycar and Viofo a129 duo

Wanting a dash cam, I started my quest by googling and youtubing. Blackboxmycar seemed to be the most popular recommendation. Visiting the website, watching their videos, reading reviews and looking thru the FAQs, I was ready and narrowed my option down too two cameras. Bewtween Jordan and Katrina, they finished my education and answered questions that I had confusion with - and they made it clear and easy to understand. The process of ordering was simple and sweet. All the way from receiving the Viofo camera, setting it up and post-purchase questions - what a great experience. Thank you! Watching the install videos made it a breeze. Its unfortunate that I do not use facebook, twitter, googlesomethanrathernutter, or else I would use those review options too. So Im glad you reached out with a web option!
I love this cam!

Happy Customer

I’m happy with their service. Professional and helpful.

Hello Becky, thank you for your review!
Great but...

I ordered four Viofo A119 with four CPL. Unfortunately I was charged $25 each for the filters even though the cost on the website is $20.

Hi Mel, thank you for leaving a review. Unfortunately, the reason why you were charged $25 for each is that that is the price of the items when purchased separately. When they are purchased as a bundle, customers will receive bundle pricing, making the CPL filter $20. Thank you for leaving a review!
BBMC Experience

I began looking into dashcams about a month ago and came across a video interview between Alex and Vortex Radar. During my research it became evident that BBMC was the leading re-seller in Canada and maybe in the USA. Their pricing was competitive. I posed a few pre-purchase enquiries to BBMC. They responded quickly and in an understandable way. Ultimately, I made an on-line purchase that was delivered fast with great tracking. As it turned out, I made a mistake with my order and it was fixed without delay. Dashcam was self installed now with all wires hidden and looking good. Thanks, BBMC. You know how to provide a great on-line experience.

(BlackVue DR900S-2CH) Amazing Product & magnificent Service !

I recently purchased a Blackvue 2ch DR-900s from BlackBoxMyCar and I am very happy with this camera so far. I spoke with a representative from the live chat named Paul and he was very helpful in setting me up with everything i needed to hard wire this unit. I received my full setup in less than a week and it was packaged very nicely. I realized when i went to wire it into my vehicle the fuse taps i received were the wrong one's. So i contact BlackBoxMyCar support and spoke to Paul who i believe was the same person i spoke to the first time and he and the team @BlackBoxMyCar was very helpful and fast at responding to my messages and ensured me they would send out the correct fuse taps which i received 2 days after they were shipped out. I Would highly recommend BlackBoxMyCar for anything you need !

Hello Joseph, thank you for taking the time to send us a review and we will definitely pass it on to Paul.
Great for first timers

I finally got around to installing the Thinkware U1000 2-channel cameras and radar. Truly couldn’t be more satisfied with the result and the many options that this camera and software has to offer. Amazing video quality and great user interface. Couldn’t ask for more.

Overall great dash cam

I was waiting for a 4k dash cam for a while and almost convinced myself to wait for later next year. What made me pull the trigger on the U1000 was the 2K rear cam resolution. It's an upgrade from my F800PRO. I have it with the cellink neo battery for parking mode. Overall it's a great dash cam to have for my needs (mostly time lapse parking mode).

Just have 1 very small inconvenience. Sometimes I can't find the dash cam in the wifi network when I'm surrounded by a lot of houses with a lot of wifi networks. It suggests to turn off wifi direct but I never had it on. The first time I tried to set it up consisted on me turning off and on the dash cam until it appears at the top of the list of wifi networks. Now if I wanted to change a setting, I just do it at a public parking lot.

Night quality needs improvement (this is why not 5 stars). I hope they have an update to improve it.

Thank you J C for the kind words. We're glad to hear that you've decided to make the upgrade from the F800PRO to the U1000 - it's a great time to do so! We do have regular communication with Thinkware on these issues, and we will definitely bring it up with them. They constantly release new firmware for their dash cams and the app, so we're confident this issue will be squashed very quickly. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at info@blackboxmycar.com or live chat with us directly on our website.
Review of THINKWARE F800 PRO

After a extended period of research I decided on the THINKWARE F800 PRO Dash CAM. Purchased both a front and rear camera with a CPL Filter for the front camera. My car has a very sloped windshield so the glare off the dash causes distortion and blurry footage; the CPL FILTER solves this problem. Would also recommend a Samsung PRO ENDURANCE 128GB Micro SDXC memory card; more money but worth it. These cameras are expensive but the quality of the footage and cameras speak for themselves. I purchased from BLACKBOXMYCAR because Alex Jang and his company stand behind and take care of the products they sell. I hope this review will help others find a great quality product and company as I was able to find in BLACKBOXMYCAR ( and no I did not know Alex or his company before I started my research. )

Thank you Duncan for the kind words. We're glad to hear that you found everything you needed at BlackboxMyCar. Your feedback is crucial in helping us become better, so we really appreciate that you've decided to leave a review :) If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at info@blackboxmycar.com or live chat with us directly on our website.
Great service

BlackboxMyCar provided great service and a walk through of the dash cam I got installed.

The cameras were installed very cleanly and work great, and the receptionist gave me a few tips for the app and storage options in the future.

Thanks,

Thinkware U1000 4K UHD Dual-Channel Cloud Dash Cam

This is the fourth dash cam I have tried and am FINALLY satisfied with the results!

The first dash cam was a single front 4K cam. This worked really well, but didn't come with the option of adding a rear dash cam (still have this).

The second one was a front camera with an inside view rear dash cam by Soliom that did a 380 degree recording view. This dash cam had decent recorded footage for the price, but would constantly freeze on me and then wouldn't record when driving. It kept on having to be reset in the middle of driving for the footage to start recording again.

The third was owlcam. This camera was convenient, but didn't work the best. It always had problems connecting and had HORRIBLE footage at night!

Lastly, I decided to spend a little more and get exactly what I wanted. I wanted a separate rear view camera because I was involved in a hit and run incident at my college which led to me trying these different dash cams. Well, I believe I have finally found the product I was looking for from a company that worked with me really well!

Jordan was very helpful in assisting me and price matching. The camera was expected to show up December 2, 2019 and I actually received it November 29, 2019. This was a pleasant surprise!

Thanks BlackboxMycar!
