Pros:

  • Good video quality
  • Easy to understand user interface
  • Solid build & tactile button feel
  • WiFi is a handy feature
  • Capacitor design is good for hot climates

Cons:

  • Shiny chrome ring in front
  • Audio quality is terrible

  • Competition has affordable alternatives

Transcend puts itself in a precarious situation here with the DrivePro 200. It’s age is showing because of how fast the dashcam industry has improved since this model was introduced. Thankfully the video quality is still good, but audio might as well just be turned off its so bad. WiFi is a nice addition, but ultimately its the reliability of the capacitor design and the Transcend brand that will make people buy this device.
