Today almost everyone has an HD video camera, GoPro, or even a smart phone with HD video camera built in. And while those cameras are cool and serve a purpose, they aren’t going to protect you in your car for day-to-day driving. In my opinion everyone should have a video camera/dvr in their car. You never know when it could come in handy. Read on for the DVR207 review after the break.
So, this week I reviewed the DVR207 portable HD DVR with 2.5″ TFT LCD screen. This kit came with a suction cup mount, cigarette charger, lithium battery, video cables, and of course the camera.

First I tried the DVR207 without it plugged in to see how long the battery would last. I can tell you the first battery cycle lasted around 90 minutes @ “HD”. Compared to my Gopro, it’s night and day. But for the price you can pick one of these up for (less than $70), I think it’s worth it. The suction cup mount has more adjustments then the gopro mount and even though it feels a bit cheap, it never failed me. It also (unlike gopro) has a HDMI out port built in on the side as well as mini USB out. The built in screen flips down and swivels 180 degrees. The sound is better than most car dvr’s. So, if you’re looking for decent vehicle dvr for always on recording check out the DVR207 here.
