Review of Surveilzone DVR and 7"screen Updated17.08.14

Tested the Screen and DVR today over 30 minutes nonstop flight... both of devices are great. I am very glad i bought them...
few things to mention.
DVR's AVout is not suitable to fly. slight bottom part cut and resized image is not good. so i made a Switch to actual video feed coming from VRx to Screen and DVR'sAVout to screen...

that way i can setup and start recording and switch to actual video with more detailed image.. Recorded video is not that cut compared to DVRAVout. for further info you can look the attachment.

I was in shade and it is real easy to see screen even using Sunglasses which massivly reduces the brightness of screen. will do Video review in future when i receive my new parcel

edit: on D1 highest quality 25:01 min video takes up 1,45Gb space. so 8 gb card with safety margin can hold upto 125 min video which is probably more than enough most of us not planning to go further than 25-30 KM

edit: bought both of them.. here is the review of DVR

no reviews unfortunatelly.
on fpvmodel they got i think same model. and on their website they claim it has same processor as keychain 808 #16 cams so the quality will be good as it...,

"""The DVR with 808 # 16 808HD uses the same processing chip. Image quality , the best guarantee ."""
price goes up a little but properties and PCB board looks same.

i couldnot find any avout (maybe close up look can reveal it but in photos i dont see any.) but not a huge problem. using Y splitter on composite video is possible with some loss but not a very big deal i guess.


i am considering getting HK SD DVR with new Quanum 4,3 cheap google set. it will cost app same with shipping on HK however...

right now i have easycap with fast laptop and encoding while recording at 720x526 without quality loss but i am going to build ground station and want to power everything and ready to fly in couple seconds rather then opening laptop connecting cables checking everything etc which is very timeconsuming heavy to carry around field and in this summer sweats like hell

I just received that monitor from a different vendor on Ebay, Although I think it will make a great monitor, mine had a couple air bubbles on 2 sides. ( delamination?) My vendor is now dragging his feet. I so wish I had gone with surveilzone as I had paid a even higher price but I didn't know!

i found same product even cheaper in local ebay clone shop how ever in info page the resolution is defined as 480 (W) XRGBX234

not really sure what it means but it is kinda tricy that someone told me they count every colored dot red green blue and gave it like pixel however they are not real pixel...

In my opinion I think you will find the HK DVR to be internally the same or similar to the surveilzone DVR my only problem with it was the unusual codec (ASF) and definitely NOT h264, no way,. The Quannum "goggles" are good for the price and there is no bluescreen with those.
