Summary: I originally chose this system because of the good reviews other people had given(on similar products made by Swann). I have had the system less than a month and I am returning the DVR a second time. I don't know if it is poor quality control or cheap parts. When the system does work, the video quality is pretty good. The 1st DVR quit recording. Sent it back and got a new replacement. The second just completely quit working.
Excerpt: I just picked up my 3rd DVR replacement from the store today in less than 30 days. Be sure and get the store warranty to avoid a long drawn out process with the maker. First DVR stopped loading up after setup with tech support. Second DVR stopped recording on the first channel. The view you see is nowhere near as clear as the photo on the box or the setup in the store display. The cameras have very, very little tilt and turn ability.
Excerpt: I want to share my installation experience with those who are about to purchase this system, hopefully to help the person doing the actual installation of the hardware.<br /><br />1. The cameras have a small box attached to the cable called a joystick, which is used to make some specific camera settings that are not available via the DVR menu system.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Many Adjustment Settings, Problems Easily Resolved, Sensitive
