Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Greetings to the dear readers of Mobile-Review.com, Belarusian Alexander Shub is with you again - the leading Russian expert in the subject of car DVRs! Let me remind you that my experience in testing devices of this type exceeds five years, and the number of closely studied models has exceeded three hundred.

If you even superficially examine the range of registrar market, you might think that everyone here is one big family. How else to explain that a model in the same case and with the same characteristics can be found in a dozen or even more brands? As a rule, we are talking about relatively inexpensive models. That is, thanks to my competence, I understand that a high-quality, perfected device with such and such features would cost at least a couple of thousand rubles more.

In my eyes, the primary opinion about twin registrars and the fact that they are usually sold in Russia by small brands that obviously do not understand anything in development does not improve in any way.

It turns out the following situation. A Russian brand places an order for the development of a registrar, a final product, and… It turns out that the client simply does not have specialists who can take full advantage of the limit of calls to eliminate errors. Yes, customers travel with the registrar, identify a couple of glitches, show the factory exactly where the hieroglyphs appear in the menu of the resulting registrar. Glitches will be fixed, and customers will ask: “We got a good product, didn’t we?” They will be answered: “Yes, exactly according to the terms of reference that you gave.”

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

The customer slowly comes to understand that the available iterations have been exhausted, and his registrar, with exactly the same components as the model of some major manufacturer-developer, works in a completely different way. But the "inside" is the same! Indeed, the components are the same. Only the development is different.

Or another option, which I wrote about in the article "Best DVR 2018: based on letters from readers." When a large company with high-quality registrars buys batches of inveterate deshman, because such products are required by large federal networks. Don't want to carry? No problem, we will find others - this is the position of domestic retail.

You understand, there is no thoughtful development here, there is only one goal - to fit into the minimum possible release budget. Moreover, investing in the creation of a quality device is pointless. Firstly, the trading network will not appreciate this anyway. Secondly, we are most often talking about short-term subsidiary brands. Which will disappear as soon as all the same “feds” stop ordering registrars from a single company for some reason.

…third option

I told you about the Russian company TrendVision back in 2016. This is one of the most legendary recorder developers in Russia. However, here are six facts that will best tell about the brand:

  • It was TrendVision engineers who "brought to life" the first Chinese registrars that Russian companies began to brand and sell in Russia in 2008;
  • TrendVision - the ancestor of the recorder form factor in the form of an overlay on the rear-view mirror. Due to its own development, the company applied a number of unique design and technical solutions;
  • TrendVision TDR-718GP is one of the most "stuffed" recorders on the market. The model was released in 2015, but so far no one can surpass it in terms of the totality of "chips". By the way, the model is constantly improved. In 2017, the developers “conjured” the design, a year later they installed a powerful 500 mAh battery. After a recent update, shooting 2304x1296 pixels 60 fps was added.
  • The head of brand support cares about the brand so much and gives himself to work that he spent several times in the hospital. No kidding, super-responsible specialist;
  • I have not seen such device support from any brand. It's not even about banal firmware. Although here TrendVision knows how to surprise - say, in TrendVision TDR-718GP, six months later, speeds were added. And this is currently one of the best speedcams in non-hybrid registrars. More importantly, the developers are not too lazy to introduce design improvements. Add an additional mount for vertical truck windows, add a more convenient power cable with an L-plug - yes, it’s easy!
  • It is TrendVision that has the most active thread on the largest forum in Runet dedicated to video recorders - videoregforum.ru. About 30 thousand messages compared to half the number of the nearest brands. The company's specialists carefully read user messages, comments are taken into account, and errors are corrected in subsequent firmware.

There is only one caveat. Author's development from cases and advanced software is an expensive thing. The only relatively budget device of the brand costs 6,000 rubles, and the main price range for the company's registrars is in the region of 10-12 thousand rubles. Meanwhile, the people are “choking” on cheap consumer goods of dubious quality, because the bulk of them do not want to pay more than 5-6 thousand rubles for registrars. What to do? TrendVison management thought hard. And that's what decided.

Since TrendVision cannot physically fall below the price of 6,000 rubles with the “from and to” approach to developing devices, a new brand needs to be created. Focused specifically on affordable, not loaded "to the eyeballs" advanced features devices. Refuse the most expensive - unique design and accessories in favor of ready-made solutions from Chinese factories. Don't bother with exclusive software features.

But! Don't skimp on what matters most to any DVR. Reliability and bezglyuchnost. With all his almost ten years of experience, to make an examination of the hardware stuffing of models and “tear out” the firmware so that it would not be embarrassing to look into the eyes of customers and did not have to blush for the quality of the products. In general, a new brand of video recorders has appeared under the wing of TrendVision.

A young, but already popular brand

Meet AXPER. A young brand that produces, perhaps, the most reliable budget registrars. Any device of the brand, without exception, is thoroughly tested and brought to perfection as far as possible. It is precisely because of the careful approach in the AXPER assortment that there is no scattering of registrars, only seven models plus a couple of versions with or without GPS. Riveting crafts without looking is not about AXPER.

At least the fact that 5 out of 11 models of this brand received the title of "Customer's Choice" on Yandex.Market speaks about the quality of products. And out of seven devices with reviews, six have a score of at least 4.5 out of five.

I emphasize that the AXPER brand is the same experienced developers and the same excellent technical support as in TrendVision.

So, to begin with, I will briefly introduce you to the line of AXPER models, and then I will share my impressions of personal testing of individual devices.

AXPER Simple, 990 rubles. The price speaks for itself, the simplest recorder with HD shooting, an accelerometer and manual marking of a file as protected from deletion. And also with an excellent bracket.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Indeed, taking into account the price, the grandiose plus of the model is the bracket. Firstly, it is quick-release, and the camera can actually be removed with one hand. Secondly, the bracket is articulated. That is, the registrar can easily be deployed towards the inspector or into the salon.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Even more interesting is that the model, due to the well-thought-out mounting, does a lot of autoregistration at a price of up to 12-15 thousand rubles. Because, unlike many colleagues, here the hinge is equipped with a washer-clamp. Therefore, on bumpy Russian roads, the registrar will not shake, or even hang out at all, like snot in the wind.

An interesting fact - with the help of AXPER Simple, a registrar for a thousand rubles, the St. Petersburg driver managed to protect himself from auto-setting, and double! Moreover, on the video you can easily see the license plates of enterprising scammers.

AXPER Mirror Simple, 1,600 rubles. Below I will talk about registrars in the form factor of an overlay on a rear-view mirror for about 10,000 rubles. If you have an extremely modest budget, but are looking for this kind of autoreg, you will hardly find something more affordable than AXPER Mirror Simple. This is a HD device with a 2.8-inch screen and a tie-down mount, the recording quality will be enough to understand the circumstances of the accident.

Customer's choice: what's the secret Russian video recorders AXPER? width=

AXPER Ring, 4,490 rubles. Excellent Full HD shooting, a large 3-inch screen, a metal body and two brackets to choose from.

First of all, I was pleased with the filling of the model. This is a classic for all time, the Taiwanese Novatek 96650 processor is extremely popular among registrars up to 6-7 thousand rubles. And no less common in various hit registrars is the American matrix Aptina AR0330, originally created for use in the field of professional video surveillance systems. Shooting is carried out in Full HD resolution, there are no questions about the quality of the recording, taking into account the price - the correct color reproduction, at night a fairly clear picture without scattering into pixels. License plates, depending on the lighting, are visible from a distance of up to 8 meters. If you want a distance of 10 or more meters - if you please, pay from 5,000 rubles and more.

There are two brackets included - with adhesive tape and with a suction cup. The "vacuum" mount is the same quick release swivel option as the AXPER Simple. Here I will make a small disclaimer. Domestic consumers are so accustomed to suction cup mounts that they perceive the mount with 3M adhesive tape as a definite minus of the model. Although the advantages are obvious - the mount is 1.5-2 times smaller compared to the "sucker" option. And tenacity, reliability of holding on glass, and durability cannot be compared with vacuum brackets.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Therefore, I assume that two fasteners are here - rather in order not to scare away the consumer. And at the same time, the brand is doing a good deed - accustoming the broad masses of drivers to civilized mounts. Plus, of course, AXPER Ring will be convenient for those who need a registrar in both their personal and company cars. And buying two devices is somehow expensive.

I'll immediately note the new items - AXPER Flat and AXPER Uni. The models cost the same as the AXPER Ring - 4,490 rubles, similarly they offer two mounts in the kit and have a similar shooting quality. But they have more compact cases due to the fact that instead of a 3-inch display they are equipped with 2.45-inch screens. The AXPER Uni also has a metal overlay on the front, while the Flat boasts a more classic design without an abundance of roundness.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

AXPER Bullet, 5,500 rubles. Honestly, I don’t know why the Chinese took so long to finally bring a magnetic bracket to the budget segment. But they definitely did it with pomp. Because AXPER Bullet is probably the only registrar in the segment of about 5,000 rubles, which, in addition to the magnetic bracket, also boasts Wi-Fi support, and at the same time a successful attempt to compete with Korean premium autoregistrators.

The model definitely has the potential to be a hit recorder. Bend fingers together:

  • Magnetic bracket. Not even quick-release, but instant-detachable;
  • BlackVue-style, compact screenless body;
  • a worthy filling - a lens with glass lenses and a Japanese matrix Sony Exmor IMX323, which is ubiquitous even in registrars for 10,000 rubles;
  • Pronunciation of all actions of the registrar in a female voice in Russian. I immediately remember BlackVue again, only here we are not talking about the premium class for 20,000 rubles;
  • Watch videos over Wi-Fi without having to download files to your smartphone.

AXPER Bullet is one of the three models of the brand that I tested, so I will talk about it in more detail a little later.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

AXPER Throne, 5,990 rubles (6,490 rubles for the GPS version). The most affordable two-camera Full HD recorder on Yandex.Market with the Customer's Choice award.

The model is made in the recently popular design in the style of Xiaomi MiJia Car Driving Recorder Camera. Which, by the way, costs almost a thousand rubles less, but cannot boast of a second camera, as well as the translation of Chinese characters in the menu into Russian.

AXPER Throne is interesting for the following features:

  • Japanese Sony Exmor IMX323 sensor, same as in AXPER Bullet;
  • two mounting options, with suction cup and 3M adhesive tape;
  • Rear HD module with parking camera function

As practice shows, the rear camera in a car in the total mass of an accident is extremely rarely useful. Therefore, it is not surprising that single-chamber models are much more popular. On the other hand, if the rear camera also carries the function of a parking eye, this dramatically increases the value of an inexpensive device like the AXPER Throne in the eyes of the driver.

It is already clear from the price that you won’t have to pay extra for an additional video channel - shooting is carried out in 720p resolution with a viewing angle of 100 degrees. The width of the picture is small, but it is enough to cover what is happening right behind the car and about half a meter on the sides. Clarity is enough for readability of license plates a meter or two from the lens. Not much, but more importantly, we get a good overall shot that allows us to find out in the event of an accident the details of what happened behind the car. And more, as a rule, is not required from the rear camera.

AXPER Universal, 9,900 rubles. One of literally a dozen registrars presented in Russia in the form of an overlay on the rear-view mirror.

And this is not just an overlay, but, in fact, a computer center in a car, with a 7-inch touch screen, Android and a SIM card slot. The most interesting thing is that this is the only registrar of this type that received the "Customer's Choice" achievement on Yandex.Market. The model consistently holds an average of 5 out of 5 points based on six reviews.

The brand positions Universal as a 10-in-1 device. In fact, thanks to the presence of Android and support for 3G, you can make an arbitrarily huge list of potential functionality. I will also talk about this device in more detail below.

AXPER Universal Pro, 10,990 rubles. The same AXPER Universal, only frameless glass is used from the front, the cooling system is slightly improved and a better lens is installed.

Many users have come to the conclusion from photos on the Internet that the screen is always on in AXPER Universal Pro. This is not so, the display can be turned on / off at any time at your discretion. And most of the time, the glass side of the registrar performs the function of an ordinary rear-view mirror. Unless information from the compass and clock will be displayed.

Without delay, I will immediately give examples of use cases that came to my mind regarding such an Android registrar.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

And you - add in the comments and share your experience.

  • Navigation with traffic jams. By default, Yandex.Navigator is installed, if a SIM card with 3G is inserted or it is possible to connect to the Internet on a smartphone, you will also get information about traffic jams.
  • Speedcam. You can stop at the free speed function within the Yandex navigation applications. Or spend a small amount on the Strelka Antiradar. According to numerous reviews and tests - the best development in this area. However, it will not be difficult to find free excellent analogues.
  • Internet distribution in the salon. If a SIM card with 3G / 4G is inserted into the model, you can turn the recorder into an access point. First of all, it will come in handy on long trips with passengers.
  • Bluetooth speakerphone. An excellent solution to improve the safety of the trip.
  • FM transmitter. As you understand, here you will be broadcasting to the acoustics of the car and music, and audio tracks of clips / films.
  • FM radio. By and large, with such a registrar and a radio tape recorder, it is not necessary to buy at all.
  • Multimedia. Listen to music, watch movies for the entertainment of passengers - yes, easily! And if you also have the Internet (from a smartphone or “your own”), then you also have the vast expanses of YouTube at your disposal.
  • Video backups. It is convenient that the user can easily upload an important video to any "cloud" storage just in case. Or quickly publish on YouTube.
  • Web surfing and gaming. It's rather Suzuki fantastic use cases, but still. Since there is a large touch screen, Internet and Android, it is quite possible to “surf” or play undemanding toys. Of course, to do this, you have to remove the recorder from the mirror, so it is best to do such things in the parking lot.
  • Anti-theft system. There are plenty of applications for Android that will allow you to find out at any time where the registrar was currently or last located, and with it the car.

AXPER Combo Prism Pro (10,990 rubles, AXPER Combo Prism version for 10,590 - without 3M mount, only with suction cup bracket).

An expensive hybrid, in which the price is determined by the combination of near-top components of the registrar (Ambarella A7LA50 processor, OmniVision OV4689 matrix, Super HD 1296p shooting) and a full-fledged radar detector (plus speed cameras). The majority of registrars for a similar price offer only Full HD-recording.

The kit provides two mounting options, on 3M adhesive tape and on a suction cup. The holders are designed specifically for the AXPER Combo Prism Pro and are significantly superior in terms of convenience and reliability.

I would like to note that I am suspicious of young or little-known brands that try to play in the field of hybrids. Okay, a hardware radar detector, anyway, it is already practically useless in the city because of stationary cameras and radars without radiation. But the base of speedcams should be complete and updated regularly. With what the mentioned inconspicuous companies have big problems. I'm not worried about AXPER - the base here is the same as that used in TrendVision recorders and is updated daily.

AXPER Combo Patch, 9,990 rubles. One of the most affordable Super HD hybrids. Indirectly, this is a variation of the AXPER Combo Prism, only a vertical patch antenna is used instead of a horn antenna.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Still, many users do not like elongated "classic" hybrids. In the case of installing a flat patch antenna, we get a combo device that looks indistinguishable from a regular DVR. We will also take a closer look at the “patch” now.

Personal test. AXPER Bullet

AXPER Bullet is one of three devices from the brand that I tested. Each manufacturer must have at least one hit device. In my opinion, AXPER Bullet has all the makings to become one among the devices of this brand. This is at least the most affordable registrar in Russia with a magnetic mount. That is, you simply will not find cheaper devices with such a feature. Let me remind you that initially registrars with similar brackets were found exclusively in the premium segment and cost from 10-12 thousand rubles. Alas, by now the situation has not changed much.

I pay special attention to voice prompts for all actions of the registrar. A female voice in Russian always keeps up to date - recording has started or stopped, whether an emergency file has been saved, and so on. Why is it important? Coincidentally, just recently I was testing and evaluating the competitiveness of a registrar of a very famous brand, with Wi-Fi, but without a screen. Its unpleasant feature is that a new memory card inserted for the first time into the registrar must be formatted. Only now the user learns about this only when connected to the model through a mobile application. If the buyer installed the camera and postponed the mobile connection until later, he could be in for an unpleasant surprise in the event of an accident. It seems that a brand new expensive registrar fervently blinked a light and worked, but in fact the card is empty, no recording was made. So you can’t refuse the thoughtfulness of AXPER Bullet: voice prompts in the absence of a screen are a must have!

A mobile application for a model is one of the typical programs of this kind. However, unlike many analogues, the developers of the registrar were not too lazy to brand the program and put it on Google Play as a separate application called "AXPER Bullet". It would seem an insignificant point, but this allows you to quickly and without studying the instructions to find the required program.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

But what really matters is a quick remote viewing of any video. I have already talked about the fact that often in Wi-Fi models, you first need to download the video to the smartphone’s memory, viewing will be available only after that. Which is extremely inconvenient, because usually the download time is almost equal to the duration of the video itself. There is nothing like this in AXPER Bullet - playback starts immediately, rewind is instant, without lags and delays.

The famous Japanese Sony Exmor IMX323 sensor, Grain Media GM8135S processor and a glass lens with a wide viewing angle of 150 degrees diagonally are responsible for shooting. The link turned out to be extremely interesting. On the one hand, an inexpensive processor allows you to shoot Full HD at 25 fps. On the other hand, a matrix with high light sensitivity allows you to keep the video smooth even at night. This model compares favorably with other state employees, when a mediocre matrix paired with a low-power "stone" in low light demonstrate almost 15 fps.

Of the pluses, I will note a decent distance of readability of license plates - up to 10 meters during the day and up to about 5-7 meters at night. The Sony matrix is, as usual, the guarantor of correct color reproduction and a contrasting picture. Sharpness is maintained across the entire field of the frame, distortion at the edges (due to the wide viewing angle) is insignificant. The only thing is that I would recommend slightly lowering the exposure so that license plates are less illuminated at night, and on a sunny day there is no excessive highlighting with loss of detail.

Total: first of all, I will advise AXPER Bullet to those who are looking for a decent budget employee with Wi-Fi support. It is unlikely that you will be able to find another registrar with a similar set of features at a price of 5,500 rubles. Well, the magnetic mount is a unique feature that will be a nice bonus.

Personal test. AXPER Universal Pro

I have a certain prejudice against Android-based harvester recorders. It was all the more interesting to get acquainted live and form an opinion about the AXPER model. Based on the results of trips with the device, I can say the following. First of all, AXPER Universal Pro should be considered by those who want to fully use the multimedia capabilities and the fact that Android allows you to install any application.

  • Magnetic bracket. Not even quick-release, but instant-detachable;
  • BlackVue-style, compact screenless body;
  • a worthy filling - a lens with glass lenses and a Japanese matrix Sony Exmor IMX323, which is ubiquitous even in registrars for 10,000 rubles;
  • Pronunciation of all actions of the registrar in a female voice in Russian. I immediately remember BlackVue again, only here we are not talking about the premium class for 20,000 rubles;
  • Watch videos over Wi-Fi without having to download files to your smartphone.

AXPER Bullet is one of the three models of the brand that I tested, so I will talk about it in more detail a little later.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

AXPER Throne, 5,990 rubles (6,490 rubles for the version with GPS). The most affordable two-camera Full HD recorder on Yandex.Market with the Customer's Choice award.

The model is made in the recently popular design in the style of Xiaomi MiJia Car Driving Recorder Camera. Which, by the way, costs almost a thousand rubles less, but cannot boast of a second camera, as well as the translation of Chinese characters in the menu into Russian.

AXPER Throne is interesting for the following features:

  • Japanese Sony Exmor IMX323 sensor, same as in AXPER Bullet;
  • two mounting options, with suction cup and 3M adhesive tape;
  • Rear HD module with parking camera function

As practice shows, the rear camera in a car in the total mass of an accident is extremely rarely useful. Therefore, it is not surprising that single-chamber models are much more popular. On the other hand, if the rear camera also carries the function of a parking eye, this dramatically increases the value of an inexpensive device like the AXPER Throne in the eyes of the driver.

It is already clear from the price that you won't have to pay extra for an additional video channel - shooting is carried out in 720p resolution with a viewing angle of 100 degrees. The width of the picture is small, but it is enough to cover what is happening right behind the car and about half a meter on the sides. Clarity is enough for readability of license plates a meter or two from the lens. Not much, but more importantly, we get a good general shot that allows us to find out in the event of an accident the details of what happened behind the car. And more, as a rule, is not required from the rear camera.

AXPER Universal, 9,900 rubles. One of literally a dozen registrars presented in Russia in the form of an overlay on the rear-view mirror.

And this is not just an overlay, but, in fact, a computer center in a car, with a 7-inch touch screen, Android and a SIM card slot. The most interesting thing is that this is the only registrar of this type that received the "Customer's Choice" achievement on Yandex.Market. The model consistently holds an average of 5 out of 5 points based on six reviews.

The brand positions Universal as a 10-in-1 device. In fact, thanks to the presence of Android and support for 3G, you can make an arbitrarily huge list of potential functionality. I will also talk about this device in more detail below.

AXPER Universal Pro, 10,990 rubles. The same AXPER Universal, only frameless glass is used from the front, the cooling system is slightly improved and a better lens is installed.

Many users have come to the conclusion from photos on the Internet that the screen is always on in AXPER Universal Pro. This is not so, the display can be turned on / off at any time at your discretion. And most of the time, the glass side of the registrar performs the function of an ordinary rear-view mirror. Unless information from the compass and clock will be displayed.

Without delay, I will immediately give examples of use cases that came to my mind regarding such an Android registrar.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

And you - add in the comments and share your experience.

  • Navigation with traffic jams. By default, Yandex.Navigator is installed, if a SIM card with 3G is inserted or it is possible to connect to the Internet on a smartphone, you will also get information about traffic jams.
  • Speedcam. You can stop at the free speed function within the Yandex navigation applications. Or spend a small amount on the Strelka Antiradar. According to numerous reviews and tests - the best development in this area. However, it will not be difficult to find free excellent analogues.
  • Internet distribution in the salon. If a SIM card with 3G / 4G is inserted into the model, you can turn the recorder into an access point. First of all, it will come in handy on long trips with passengers.
  • Handsfree via Bluetooth. An excellent solution to improve the safety of the trip.
  • FM transmitter. As you understand, here you will be broadcasting both music and audio tracks of clips / films to the acoustics of the car.
  • FM radio. By and large, with such a registrar and a radio tape recorder, it is not necessary to buy at all.
  • Multimedia. Listen to music, watch movies for the entertainment of passengers - yes, easily! And if you also have the Internet (from a smartphone or “your own”), then you also have the vast expanses of YouTube at your disposal.
  • Video backups. It is convenient that the user can easily upload an important video to any "cloud" storage just in case. Or quickly publish on YouTube.
  • Web surfing and gaming. It's rather Suzuki fantastic use cases, but still. Since there is a large touch screen, Internet and Android, it is quite possible to “surf” or play undemanding toys. Of course, to do this, you have to remove the recorder from the mirror, so it is best to do such things in the parking lot.
  • Anti-theft system. There are plenty of applications for Android that will allow you to find out at any time where the registrar was currently or last located, and with it the car.

AXPER Combo Prism Pro (10,990 rubles, AXPER Combo Prism version for 10,590 - without 3M mount, only with suction cup bracket).

An expensive hybrid, in which the price is determined by the combination of near-top components of the registrar (Ambarella A7LA50 processor, OmniVision OV4689 matrix, Super HD 1296p shooting) and a full-fledged radar detector (plus speed cameras). The majority of registrars for a similar price offer only Full HD-recording.

The kit provides two mounting options, on 3M adhesive tape and on a suction cup. The holders are designed specifically for the AXPER Combo Prism Pro and are significantly superior in terms of convenience and reliability.

I would like to note that I am suspicious of young or little-known brands that try to play in the field of hybrids. Okay, a hardware radar detector, anyway, it is already practically useless in the city because of stationary cameras and radars without radiation. But the base of speedcams should be complete and updated regularly. With what the mentioned inconspicuous companies have big problems. I'm not worried about AXPER - the base here is the same as that used in TrendVision recorders and is updated daily.

AXPER Combo Patch, 9,990 rubles. One of the most affordable Super HD hybrids. Indirectly, this is a variation of the AXPER Combo Prism, only a vertical patch antenna is used instead of a horn antenna.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Still, many users do not like elongated "classic" hybrids. In the case of installing a flat patch antenna, we get a combo device that looks indistinguishable from a regular DVR. We will also take a closer look at the “patch” now.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Personal test. AXPER Bullet

AXPER Bullet is one of three devices from the brand that I tested. Each manufacturer must have at least one hit device. In my opinion, AXPER Bullet has all the makings to become one among the devices of this brand. This is at least the most affordable registrar in Russia with a magnetic mount. That is, you simply will not find cheaper devices with such a feature. Let me remind you that initially registrars with similar brackets were found exclusively in the premium segment and cost from 10-12 thousand rubles. Alas, by now the situation has not changed much.

On the other hand, I wouldn't consider the magnetic holder as a killer feature. The fact is that there is no pass-through power through the mount, so if you want to take the recorder out of the car every time, you will need to constantly remove / insert the cable into the camera body. On the other hand, we still get a useful option. You never know, you have to park your car in a dysfunctional or suspicious area - it's better to play it safe and take the AXPER Bullet with you. At the same time, only a tiny oval plate will remain on the glass, according to which the passer-by will not guess about the use of the registrar. This is me to the fact that the typical brackets on the suction cup left on the “frontal” often lead attackers to the idea that the auto-registration may well be hidden in the glove compartment. And to check all that remains is to break the glass of the car ...

Customer's choice: what's the secret Russian DVRs AXPER? width=

I pay special attention to voice prompts for all actions of the registrar. A female voice in Russian always keeps up to date - recording has started or stopped, whether an emergency file has been saved, and so on. Why is it important? Coincidentally, just recently I was testing and evaluating the competitiveness of a registrar of a very famous brand, with Wi-Fi, but without a screen. Its unpleasant feature is that a new memory card inserted for the first time into the registrar must be formatted. Only now the user learns about it only when connected to the model through a mobile application. If the buyer installed the camera and postponed the mobile connection until later, he could be in for an unpleasant surprise in the event of an accident. It seems that a brand new expensive registrar fervently blinked a light and worked, but in fact the card is empty, no recording was made. So you can’t refuse the thoughtfulness of AXPER Bullet: voice prompts in the absence of a screen are a must have!

A mobile application for a model is one of the typical programs of this kind. However, unlike many analogues, the developers of the registrar were not too lazy to brand the program and put it on Google Play as a separate application called "AXPER Bullet". It would seem an insignificant point, but this allows you to quickly and without studying the instructions to find the required program.

But what really matters is a quick remote viewing of any video. I have already talked about the fact that often in Wi-Fi models, you first need to download the video to the smartphone’s memory, viewing will be available only after that. Which is extremely inconvenient, because usually the download time is almost equal to the duration of the video itself. There is nothing like this in AXPER Bullet - playback starts immediately, rewind is instant, without lags and delays.

The famous Japanese Sony Exmor IMX323 sensor, Grain Media GM8135S processor and a glass lens with a wide viewing angle of 150 degrees diagonally are responsible for shooting. The link turned out to be extremely interesting. On the one hand, an inexpensive processor allows you to shoot Full HD at 25 fps. On the other hand, a matrix with high light sensitivity allows you to keep the video smooth even at night. This model compares favorably with other state employees, when a mediocre matrix paired with a low-power "stone" in low light demonstrate almost 15 fps.

Of the pluses, I will note a decent distance of readability of license plates - up to 10 meters during the day and up to about 5-7 meters at night. The Sony matrix is, as usual, the guarantor of correct color reproduction and a contrasting picture. Sharpness is maintained throughout the frame, distortion at the edges (due to the wide viewing angle) is insignificant. The only thing is that I would recommend slightly lowering the exposure so that license plates are less illuminated at night, and on a sunny day there is no excessive highlighting with loss of detail.

Total: first of all, I will advise AXPER Bullet to those who are looking for a decent state employee with Wi-Fi support. It is unlikely that you will be able to find another registrar with a similar set of features at a price of 5,500 rubles. Well, the magnetic mount is a unique feature that will be a nice bonus.

Personal test. AXPER Universal Pro

I have a certain prejudice against Android-based harvester recorders. It was all the more interesting to get acquainted live and form an opinion about the AXPER model. Based on the results of trips with the device, I can say the following. First of all, AXPER Universal Pro should be considered by those who want to fully use the multimedia capabilities and the fact that Android allows you to install any application.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Greetings to the dear readers of Mobile-Review.com, Belarusian Alexander Shub is with you again - the leading Russian expert in the subject of car DVRs! Let me remind you that my experience in testing devices of this type exceeds five years, and the number of closely studied models has exceeded three hundred.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

If you even superficially examine the assortment of the registrar market, you might think that everyone here is one big family. How else to explain that a model in the same case and with the same characteristics can be found in a dozen or even more brands? As a rule, we are talking about relatively inexpensive models. That is, thanks to my competence, I understand that a high-quality, perfected device with such and such features would cost at least a couple of thousand rubles more.

In my eyes, the primary opinion about twin registrars and the fact that they are usually sold in Russia by small brands that obviously do not understand anything in development does not improve in any way.

It turns out the following situation. A Russian brand places an order for the development of a registrar, a final product, and… It turns out that the client simply does not have specialists who can take full advantage of the limit of calls to eliminate errors. Yes, customers travel with the registrar, identify a couple of glitches, show the factory exactly where the hieroglyphs appear in the menu of the resulting registrar. Glitches will be fixed, and customers will ask: “We got a good product, didn’t we?” They will be answered: “Yes, exactly according to the terms of reference that you gave.”

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

The customer slowly comes to understand that the available iterations have been exhausted, and his registrar, with exactly the same components as the model of some major manufacturer-developer, works in a completely different way. But the "inside" is the same! Indeed, the components are the same. Only the development is different.

Or another option, which I wrote about in the article "Best DVR 2018: based on letters from readers." When a large company with high-quality registrars buys batches of inveterate deshman, because such products are required by large federal networks. Don't want to carry? No problem, we will find others - this is the position of domestic retail.

You understand, there is no thoughtful development here, there is only one goal - to fit into the minimum possible release budget. Moreover, investing in the creation of a quality device is pointless. Firstly, the trading network will not appreciate this anyway. Secondly, we are most often talking about short-term subsidiary brands. Which will disappear as soon as all the same “feds” stop ordering registrars from a single company for some reason.

…third option

I told you about the Russian company TrendVision back in 2016. This is one of the most legendary recorder developers in Russia. However, here are six facts that will best tell about the brand:

  • It was TrendVision engineers who "brought to life" the first Chinese registrars that Russian companies began to brand and sell in Russia in 2008;
  • TrendVision - the ancestor of the recorder form factor in the form of an overlay on the rear-view mirror. Due to its own development, the company applied a number of unique design and technical solutions;
  • TrendVision TDR-718GP is one of the most "stuffed" recorders on the market. The model was released in 2015, but so far no one can surpass it in terms of the totality of "chips". By the way, the model is constantly improved. In 2017, the developers “conjured” the design, a year later they installed a powerful 500 mAh battery. After a recent update, shooting 2304x1296 pixels 60 fps was added.
  • The head of brand support cares about the brand so much and gives himself to work that he spent several times in the hospital. No kidding, super-responsible specialist;
  • I have not seen such device support from any brand. It's not even about banal firmware. Although here TrendVision knows how to surprise - say, in TrendVision TDR-718GP, six months later, speeds were added. And this is currently one of the best speedcams in non-hybrid registrars. More importantly, the developers are not too lazy to introduce design improvements. Add an additional mount for vertical truck windows, add a more convenient power cable with an L-plug - yes, it’s easy!
  • It is TrendVision that has the most active thread on the largest forum in Runet dedicated to video recorders - videoregforum.ru. About 30 thousand messages compared to half the number of the nearest brands. The company's specialists carefully read user messages, comments are taken into account, and errors are corrected in subsequent firmware.

There is only one caveat. Author's development from cases and advanced software is an expensive thing. The only relatively budget device of the brand costs 6,000 rubles, and the main price range for the company's registrars is in the region of 10-12 thousand rubles. Meanwhile, the people are “choking” on cheap consumer goods of dubious quality, because the bulk of them do not want to pay more than 5-6 thousand rubles for registrars. What to do? TrendVison management thought hard. And that's what decided.

Since TrendVision cannot physically fall below the price of 6,000 rubles with the “from and to” approach to developing devices, a new brand needs to be created. Focused specifically on affordable, not loaded "to the eyeballs" advanced features devices. Refuse the most expensive - unique design and accessories in favor of ready-made solutions from Chinese factories. Don't bother with exclusive software features.

But! Don't skimp on what matters most to any DVR. Reliability and bezglyuchnost. With all his almost ten years of experience, to make an examination of the hardware stuffing of models and “tear out” the firmware so that it would not be embarrassing to look into the eyes of customers and did not have to blush for the quality of the products. In general, a new brand of video recorders has appeared under the wing of TrendVision.

A young, but already popular brand

Meet AXPER. A young brand that produces, perhaps, the most reliable budget registrars. Any device of the brand, without exception, is thoroughly tested and brought to perfection as far as possible. It is precisely because of the careful approach in the AXPER assortment that there is no scattering of registrars, only seven models plus a couple of versions with or without GPS. Riveting crafts without looking is not about AXPER.

At least the fact that 5 out of 11 models of this brand received the title of "Customer's Choice" on Yandex.Market speaks about the quality of products. And out of seven devices with reviews, six have a score of at least 4.5 out of five.

I emphasize that the AXPER brand is the same experienced developers and the same excellent technical support as in TrendVision.

So, to begin with, I will briefly introduce you to the line of AXPER models, and then I will share my impressions of personal testing of individual devices.

AXPER Simple, 990 rubles. The price speaks for itself, the simplest recorder with HD shooting, an accelerometer and manual marking of a file as protected from deletion. And also with an excellent bracket.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Indeed, taking into account the price, the grandiose plus of the model is the bracket. Firstly, it is quick-release, and the camera can actually be removed with one hand. Secondly, the bracket is articulated. That is, the registrar can easily be deployed towards the inspector or into the salon.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Even more interesting is that the model, due to the well-thought-out mounting, does a lot of autoregistration at a price of up to 12-15 thousand rubles. Because, unlike many colleagues, here the hinge is equipped with a washer-clamp. Therefore, on bumpy Russian roads, the registrar will not shake, or even hang out at all, like snot in the wind.

An interesting fact - with the help of AXPER Simple, a registrar for a thousand rubles, the St. Petersburg driver managed to protect himself from auto-setting, and double! Moreover, on the video you can easily see the license plates of enterprising scammers.

AXPER Mirror Simple, 1,600 rubles. Below I will talk about recorders in the form factor of the overlay on the rear-view mirror for about 10,000 rubles. If you have an extremely modest budget, but are looking for just this kind of autoreg, you will hardly find something more affordable than AXPER Mirror Simple. This is a HD device with a 2.8-inch screen and a tie-down mount, the recording quality will be enough to understand the circumstances of the accident.

Customer's choice: what's the secret Russian DVRs AXPER? width=

AXPER Ring, 4,490 rubles. Excellent Full HD shooting, a large 3-inch screen, a metal body and two brackets to choose from.

First of all, I was pleased with the filling of the model. This is a classic for all time, the Taiwanese Novatek 96650 processor is extremely popular among registrars up to 6-7 thousand rubles. And no less common in various hit registrars is the American matrix Aptina AR0330, originally created for use in the field of professional video surveillance systems. Shooting is carried out in Full HD resolution, there are no questions about the quality of the recording, taking into account the price - the correct color reproduction, at night a fairly clear picture without scattering into pixels. License plates, depending on the lighting, are visible from a distance of up to 8 meters. If you want a distance of 10 or more meters - if you please, pay from 5,000 rubles and more.

There are two brackets included - with adhesive tape and with a suction cup. The "vacuum" mount is the same quick release swivel option as the AXPER Simple. Here I will make a small disclaimer. Domestic consumers are so accustomed to suction cup mounts that they perceive the mount with 3M adhesive tape as a definite minus of the model. Although the advantages are obvious - the mount is 1.5-2 times smaller compared to the "sucker" option. And tenacity, reliability of holding on glass, and durability cannot be compared with vacuum brackets.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Therefore, I assume that two fasteners are here - rather in order not to scare away the consumer. And at the same time, the brand is doing a good deed - accustoming the broad masses of drivers to civilized mounts. Plus, of course, AXPER Ring will be convenient for those who need a registrar in both their personal and company cars. And buying two devices is somehow expensive.

I'll immediately note the new items - AXPER Flat and AXPER Uni. The models cost the same as the AXPER Ring - 4,490 rubles, similarly they offer two mounts in the kit and have a similar shooting quality. But they have more compact cases due to the fact that instead of a 3-inch display they are equipped with 2.45-inch screens. The AXPER Uni also has a metal overlay on the front, while the Flat boasts a more classic design without an abundance of roundness.

AXPER Bullet, 5,500 rubles. Honestly, I don’t know why the Chinese took so long to finally bring a magnetic bracket to the budget segment. But they definitely did it with pomp. Because AXPER Bullet is probably the only registrar in the segment of about 5,000 rubles, which, in addition to the magnetic bracket, also boasts Wi-Fi support, and at the same time a successful attempt to compete with Korean premium autoregistrators.

The model definitely has the potential to be a hit recorder. Bend fingers together:

Coincidentally, just recently I was testing and evaluating the competitiveness of a registrar of a very famous brand, with Wi-Fi, but without a screen. Its unpleasant feature is that a new memory card inserted for the first time into the registrar must be formatted. Only now the user learns about this only when connected to the model through a mobile application. If the buyer installed the camera and postponed the mobile connection until later, he could be in for an unpleasant surprise in the event of an accident. It seems that a brand new expensive registrar fervently blinked a light and worked, but in fact the card is empty, no recording was made. So you can’t refuse the thoughtfulness of AXPER Bullet: voice prompts in the absence of a screen are a must have!

A mobile application for a model is one of the typical programs of this kind. However, unlike many analogues, the developers of the registrar were not too lazy to brand the program and put it on Google Play as a separate application called "AXPER Bullet". It would seem an insignificant point, but this allows you to quickly and without studying the instructions to find the required program.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

But what really matters is a quick remote viewing of any video. I have already talked about the fact that often in Wi-Fi models, you first need to download the video to the smartphone’s memory, viewing will be available only after that. Which is extremely inconvenient, because usually the download time is almost equal to the duration of the video itself. There is nothing like this in AXPER Bullet - playback starts immediately, rewind is instant, without lags and delays.

The famous Japanese Sony Exmor IMX323 sensor, Grain Media GM8135S processor and a glass lens with a wide viewing angle of 150 degrees diagonally are responsible for shooting. The link turned out to be extremely interesting. On the one hand, an inexpensive processor allows you to shoot Full HD at 25 fps. On the other hand, a matrix with high light sensitivity allows you to keep the video smooth even at night. This model compares favorably with other state employees, when a mediocre matrix paired with a low-power "stone" in low light demonstrate almost 15 fps.

Of the pluses, I will note a decent distance of readability of license plates - up to 10 meters during the day and up to about 5-7 meters at night. The Sony matrix is, as usual, the guarantor of correct color reproduction and a contrasting picture. Sharpness is maintained across the entire field of the frame, distortion at the edges (due to the wide viewing angle) is insignificant. The only thing is that I would recommend slightly lowering the exposure so that license plates are less illuminated at night, and on a sunny day there is no excessive highlighting with loss of detail.

Total: first of all, I will advise AXPER Bullet to those who are looking for a decent budget employee with Wi-Fi support. It is unlikely that you will be able to find another registrar with a similar set of features at a price of 5,500 rubles. Well, the magnetic mount is a unique feature that will be a nice bonus.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Personal test. AXPER Universal Pro

I have a certain prejudice against Android-based harvester recorders. It was all the more interesting to get acquainted live and form an opinion about the AXPER model. Based on the results of trips with the device, I can say the following. First of all, AXPER Universal Pro should be considered by those who want to fully use the multimedia capabilities and the fact that Android allows you to install any application.

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Buyer's choice: what is the secret of Russian AXPER DVRs?

Greetings to the dear readers of Mobile-Review.com, Belarusian Alexander Shub is with you again - the leading Russian expert in the subject of car DVRs! Let me remind you that my experience in testing devices of this type exceeds five years, and the number of closely studied models has exceeded three hundred.

If you even superficially examine the range of registrar market, you might think that everyone here is one big family. How else to explain that a model in the same case and with the same characteristics can be found in a dozen or even more brands? As a rule, we are talking about relatively inexpensive models. That is, thanks to my competence, I understand that a high-quality, perfected device with such and such features would cost at least a couple of thousand rubles more.

In my eyes, the primary opinion about twin registrars and the fact that they are usually sold in Russia by small brands that obviously do not understand anything in development does not improve in any way.

It turns out the following situation. A Russian brand places an order for the development of a registrar, a final product, and… It turns out that the client simply does not have specialists who can take full advantage of the limit of calls to eliminate errors. Yes, customers travel with the registrar, identify a couple of glitches, show the factory exactly where the hieroglyphs appear in the menu of the resulting registrar. Glitches will be fixed, and customers will ask: “We got a good product, didn’t we?” They will be answered: “Yes, exactly according to the terms of reference that you gave.”

The customer slowly comes to understand that the available iterations have been exhausted, and his registrar, with exactly the same components as the model of some major manufacturer-developer, works in a completely different way. But the "inside" is the same! Indeed, the components are the same. Only the development is different.

Or another option, which I wrote about in the article "Best DVR 2018: based on letters from readers." When a large company with high-quality registrars buys batches of inveterate deshman, because such products are required by large federal networks. Don't want to carry? No problem, we will find others - this is the position of domestic retail.

You understand, there is no thoughtful development here, there is only one goal - to fit into the minimum possible release budget. Moreover, investing in the creation of a quality device is pointless. Firstly, the trading network will not appreciate this anyway. Secondly, we are most often talking about short-term subsidiary brands. Which will disappear as soon as all the same “feds” stop ordering registrars from a single company for some reason.

…third option

I told you about the Russian company TrendVision back in 2016. This is one of the most legendary recorder developers in Russia. However, here are six facts that will best tell about the brand:

  • It was TrendVision engineers who "brought to life" the first Chinese registrars that Russian companies began to brand and sell in Russia in 2008;
  • TrendVision - the ancestor of the recorder form factor in the form of an overlay on the rear-view mirror. Due to its own development, the company applied a number of unique design and technical solutions;
  • TrendVision TDR-718GP is one of the most "stuffed" recorders on the market. The model was released in 2015, but so far no one can surpass it in terms of the totality of "chips". By the way, the model is constantly improved. In 2017, the developers “conjured” the design, a year later they installed a powerful 500 mAh battery. After a recent update, shooting 2304x1296 pixels 60 fps was added.
  • The head of brand support cares about the brand so much and gives himself to work that he spent several times in the hospital. No kidding, super-responsible specialist;
  • I have not seen such device support from any brand. It's not even about banal firmware. Although here TrendVision knows how to surprise - say, in TrendVision TDR-718GP, six months later, speeds were added. And this is currently one of the best speedcams in non-hybrid registrars. More importantly, the developers are not too lazy to introduce design improvements. Add an additional mount for vertical truck windows, add a more convenient power cable with an L-plug - yes, it’s easy!
  • It is TrendVision that has the most active thread on the largest forum in Runet dedicated to video recorders - videoregforum.ru. About 30 thousand messages compared to half the number of the nearest brands. The company's specialists carefully read user messages, comments are taken into account, and errors are corrected in subsequent firmware.

There is only one caveat. Author's development from cases and advanced software is an expensive thing. The only relatively budget device of the brand costs 6,000 rubles, and the main price range for the company's registrars is in the region of 10-12 thousand rubles. Meanwhile, the people are “choking” on cheap consumer goods of dubious quality, because the bulk of them do not want to pay more than 5-6 thousand rubles for registrars. What to do? TrendVison management thought hard. And that's what decided.

Since TrendVision cannot physically fall below the price of 6,000 rubles with the “from and to” approach to developing devices, a new brand needs to be created. Focused specifically on affordable, not loaded "to the eyeballs" advanced features devices. Refuse the most expensive - unique design and accessories in favor of ready-made solutions from Chinese factories. Don't bother with exclusive software features.

But! Don't skimp on what matters most to any DVR. Reliability and bezglyuchnost. With all his almost ten years of experience, to make an examination of the hardware stuffing of models and “tear out” the firmware so that it would not be embarrassing to look into the eyes of customers and did not have to blush for the quality of the products. In general, a new brand of video recorders has appeared under the wing of TrendVision.

A young, but already popular brand

Meet AXPER. A young brand that produces, perhaps, the most reliable budget registrars. Any device of the brand, without exception, is thoroughly tested and brought to perfection as far as possible. It is precisely because of the careful approach in the AXPER assortment that there is no scattering of registrars, only seven models plus a couple of versions with or without GPS. Riveting crafts without looking is not about AXPER.

At least the fact that 5 out of 11 models of this brand received the title of "Customer's Choice" on Yandex.Market speaks about the quality of products. And out of seven devices with reviews, six have a score of at least 4.5 out of five.

I emphasize that the AXPER brand is the same experienced developers and the same excellent technical support as in TrendVision.

So, to begin with, I will briefly introduce you to the line of AXPER models, and then I will share my impressions of personal testing of individual devices.

AXPER Simple, 990 rubles. The price speaks for itself, the simplest recorder with HD shooting, an accelerometer and manual marking of a file as protected from deletion. And also with an excellent bracket.

Indeed, taking into account the price, the grandiose plus of the model is the bracket. Firstly, it is quick-release, and the camera can actually be removed with one hand. Secondly, the bracket is articulated. That is, the registrar can easily be deployed towards the inspector or into the salon.

Even more interesting is that the model, due to the well-thought-out mounting, does a lot of autoregistration at a price of up to 12-15 thousand rubles. Because, unlike many colleagues, here the hinge is equipped with a washer-clamp. Therefore, on bumpy Russian roads, the registrar will not shake, or even hang out at all, like snot in the wind.

An interesting fact - with the help of AXPER Simple, a registrar for a thousand rubles, the St. Petersburg driver managed to protect himself from auto-setting, and double! Moreover, on the video you can easily see the license plates of enterprising scammers.

AXPER Mirror Simple, 1,600 rubles. Below I will talk about recorders in the form factor of the overlay on the rear-view mirror for about 10,000 rubles. If you have an extremely modest budget, but are looking for just this kind of autoreg, you will hardly find something more affordable than AXPER Mirror Simple. This is a HD device with a 2.8-inch screen and a tie-down mount, the recording quality will be enough to understand the circumstances of the accident.

AXPER Ring, 4,490 rubles. Excellent Full HD shooting, a large 3-inch screen, a metal body and two brackets to choose from.

First of all, I was pleased with the filling of the model. This is a classic for all time, the Taiwanese Novatek 96650 processor is extremely popular among registrars up to 6-7 thousand rubles. And no less common in various hit registrars is the American matrix Aptina AR0330, originally created for use in the field of professional video surveillance systems. Shooting is carried out in Full HD resolution, there are no questions about the quality of the recording, taking into account the price - the correct color reproduction, at night a fairly clear picture without scattering into pixels. License plates, depending on the lighting, are visible from a distance of up to 8 meters. If you want a distance of 10 or more meters - if you please, pay from 5,000 rubles and more.

The set includes two brackets - with adhesive tape and with a suction cup. The "vacuum" mount is the same quick release swivel option as the AXPER Simple. Here I will make a small reservation. Domestic consumers are so accustomed to suction cup mounts that they perceive the mount with 3M adhesive tape as a definite minus of the model. Although the advantages are obvious - the mount is 1.5-2 times smaller compared to the "sucker" option. And tenacity, reliability of holding on glass, and durability cannot be compared with vacuum brackets.

Therefore, I assume that two fasteners are here - rather in order not to scare away the consumer. And at the same time, the brand is doing a good deed - accustoming the broad masses of drivers to civilized mounts. Plus, of course, AXPER Ring will be convenient for those who need a registrar in both their personal and company cars. And buying two devices is somehow expensive.

I will immediately note the new items - AXPER Flat and AXPER Uni. The models cost the same as the AXPER Ring - 4,490 rubles, similarly they offer two mounts in the kit and have a similar shooting quality. But they have more compact cases due to the fact that instead of a 3-inch display they are equipped with 2.45-inch screens. The AXPER Uni also has a metal overlay on the front, while the Flat boasts a more classic design without an abundance of roundness.

AXPER Bullet, 5,500 rubles. Honestly, I don’t know why the Chinese took so long to finally bring a magnetic bracket to the budget segment. But they definitely did it with pomp. Because AXPER Bullet is probably the only registrar in the segment of about 5,000 rubles, which, in addition to the magnetic bracket, also boasts Wi-Fi support, and at the same time a successful attempt to compete with Korean premium autoregistrators.

The model definitely has the potential to be a hit recorder. Bend fingers together:

  • Magnetic bracket. Not even quick-release, but instant-detachable;
  • BlackVue-style, compact screenless body;
  • a worthy filling - a lens with glass lenses and a Japanese matrix Sony Exmor IMX323, which is ubiquitous even in registrars for 10,000 rubles;
  • Pronunciation of all actions of the registrar in a female voice in Russian. I immediately remember BlackVue again, only here we are not talking about the premium class for 20,000 rubles;
  • Watch videos over Wi-Fi without having to download files to your smartphone.

AXPER Bullet is one of the three models of the brand that I tested, so I will talk about it in more detail a little later.

AXPER Throne, 5,990 rubles (6,490 rubles for the version with GPS). The most affordable two-camera Full HD recorder on Yandex.Market with the Customer's Choice award.

The model is made in the recently popular design in the style of Xiaomi MiJia Car Driving Recorder Camera. Which, by the way, costs almost a thousand rubles less, but cannot boast of a second camera, as well as the translation of Chinese characters in the menu into Russian.

AXPER Throne is interesting for the following features:

  • Japanese Sony Exmor IMX323 sensor, same as in AXPER Bullet;
  • two mounting options, with suction cup and 3M adhesive tape;
  • Rear HD module with parking camera function

As practice shows, the rear camera in a car in the total mass of an accident is extremely rarely useful. Therefore, it is not surprising that single-chamber models are much more popular. On the other hand, if the rear camera also carries the function of a parking eye, this dramatically increases the value of an inexpensive device like the AXPER Throne in the eyes of the driver.

It is already clear from the price that you won't have to pay extra for an additional video channel - shooting is carried out in 720p resolution with a viewing angle of 100 degrees. The width of the picture is small, but it is enough to cover what is happening right behind the car and about half a meter on the sides. Clarity is enough for readability of license plates a meter or two from the lens. Not much, but more importantly, we get a good general shot that allows us to find out in the event of an accident the details of what happened behind the car. And more, as a rule, is not required from the rear camera.

AXPER Universal, 9,900 rubles. One of literally a dozen registrars presented in Russia in the form of an overlay on the rear-view mirror.

And this is not just an overlay, but, in fact, a computer center in a car, with a 7-inch touch screen, Android and a SIM card slot. The most interesting thing is that this is the only registrar of this type that received the "Customer's Choice" achievement on Yandex.Market. The model consistently holds an average of 5 out of 5 points based on six reviews.

The brand positions Universal as a 10-in-1 device. In fact, thanks to the presence of Android and support for 3G, you can make an arbitrarily huge list of potential functionality. I will also talk about this device in more detail below.

AXPER Universal Pro, 10,990 rubles. The same AXPER Universal, only frameless glass is used from the front, the cooling system is slightly improved and a better lens is installed.

Many users have come to the conclusion from photos on the Internet that the screen is always on in AXPER Universal Pro. This is not so, the display can be turned on / off at any time at your discretion. And most of the time, the glass side of the registrar performs the function of an ordinary rear-view mirror. Unless information from the compass and clock will be displayed.

Without delay, I will immediately give examples of use cases that came to my mind regarding such an Android registrar.

And you - add in the comments and share your experience.

  • Navigation with traffic jams. By default, Yandex.Navigator is installed, if a SIM card with 3G is inserted or it is possible to connect to the Internet on a smartphone, you will also get information about traffic jams.
  • Speedcam. You can stop at the free speed function within the Yandex navigation applications. Or spend a small amount on the Strelka Antiradar. According to numerous reviews and tests - the best development in this area. However, it will not be difficult to find free excellent analogues.
  • Internet distribution in the salon. If a SIM card with 3G / 4G is inserted into the model, you can turn the recorder into an access point. First of all, it will come in handy on long trips with passengers.
  • Bluetooth speakerphone. An excellent solution to improve the safety of the trip.
  • FM transmitter. As you understand, here you will be broadcasting to the acoustics of the car and music, and audio tracks of clips / films.
  • FM radio. By and large, with such a registrar and a radio tape recorder, it is not necessary to buy at all.
  • Multimedia. Listen to music, watch movies for the entertainment of passengers - yes, easily! And if you also have the Internet (from a smartphone or “your own”), then you also have the vast expanses of YouTube at your disposal.
  • Video backups.It is convenient that the user can easily upload an important video to any "cloud" storage just in case. Or quickly publish on YouTube.
  • Web surfing and gaming. It's more of a Suzuki fantastic use case, but still. Since there is a large touch screen, Internet and Android, it is quite possible to “surf” or play undemanding toys. Of course, to do this, you have to remove the recorder from the mirror, so it is best to do such things in the parking lot.
  • Anti-theft system. There are plenty of applications for Android that will allow you to find out at any time where the registrar was currently or last located, and with it the car.

  • AXPER Combo Prism Pro (10,990 rubles, version of AXPER Combo Prism for 10,590 - without 3M mount, only with suction cup).

    An expensive hybrid, in which the price is determined by the combination of near-top components of the registrar (Ambarella A7LA50 processor, OmniVision OV4689 matrix, Super HD 1296p shooting) and a full-fledged radar detector (plus speed cameras). The majority of registrars for a similar price offer only Full HD-recording.

    The kit provides two mounting options, on 3M adhesive tape and on a suction cup. The holders are designed specifically for the AXPER Combo Prism Pro and are significantly superior in terms of convenience and reliability.

    I would like to note that I am suspicious of young or little-known brands that try to play in the field of hybrids. Okay, a hardware radar detector, anyway, it is already practically useless in the city because of stationary cameras and radars without radiation. But the base of speedcams should be complete and updated regularly. With what the mentioned inconspicuous companies have big problems. I'm not worried about AXPER - the base here is the same as that used in TrendVision recorders and is updated daily.

    AXPER Combo Patch, 9,990 rubles. One of the most affordable Super HD hybrids. Indirectly, this is a variation of the AXPER Combo Prism, only a vertical patch antenna is used instead of a horn antenna.

    Still, many users do not like elongated "classic" hybrids. In the case of installing a flat patch antenna, we get a combo device that looks indistinguishable from a regular DVR. We will also take a closer look at the “patch” now.

    Personal test. AXPER Bullet

    AXPER Bullet is one of three devices from the brand that I tested. Each manufacturer must have at least one hit device. In my opinion, AXPER Bullet has all the makings to become one among the devices of this brand. This is at least the most affordable registrar in Russia with a magnetic mount. That is, you simply will not find cheaper devices with such a feature. Let me remind you that initially registrars with similar brackets were found exclusively in the premium segment and cost from 10-12 thousand rubles. Alas, by now the situation has not changed much.

    On the other hand, I wouldn't consider the magnetic holder as a killer feature. The fact is that there is no pass-through power through the mount, so if you want to take the recorder out of the car every time, you will need to constantly remove / insert the cable into the camera body. On the other hand, we still get a useful option. You never know, you have to park your car in a dysfunctional or suspicious area - it's better to play it safe and take the AXPER Bullet with you. At the same time, only a tiny oval plate will remain on the glass, according to which the passer-by will not guess about the use of the registrar. This is me to the fact that the typical brackets on the suction cup left on the “frontal” often lead attackers to the idea that the auto-registration may well be hidden in the glove compartment. And to check all that remains is to break the glass of the car ...

    I pay special attention to voice prompts for all actions of the registrar. A female voice in Russian always keeps up to date - recording has started or stopped, whether an emergency file has been saved, and so on. Why is it important? Coincidentally, just recently I was testing and evaluating the competitiveness of a registrar of a very famous brand, with Wi-Fi, but without a screen.

Only now the user learns about this only when connected to the model through a mobile application. If the buyer installed the camera and postponed the mobile connection until later, he could be in for an unpleasant surprise in the event of an accident. It seems that a brand new expensive registrar fervently blinked a light and worked, but in fact the card is empty, no recording was made. So you can’t refuse the thoughtfulness of AXPER Bullet: voice prompts in the absence of a screen are a must have!

    A mobile application for a model is one of the typical programs of this kind. However, unlike many analogues, the developers of the registrar were not too lazy to brand the program and put it on Google Play as a separate application called "AXPER Bullet". It would seem an insignificant point, but this allows you to quickly and without studying the instructions to find the required program.
