Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the money I guess ... I was happy with the easy setup. Plug and play was a snap. The only things i was not really impressed with was the color quality and ease of use with the menu controls. I was wanting to use this for motion activated recording and does not work like it says it should. I haven't even tried to setup the networking side of things. I have a feeling it's going to be a mess. For the price of the system I can't really complain. If you are wanting a better quality system, you are going to have to pay for it. For a basic beginner system this is great! February 5, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quick and Easy To Set Up...Does the Job! Good Value! Out of the box, it did not take very long to get it up and running. My attic access was limited, so I ordered the extra 60' extensions and wired it up. Put up all 4 cameras, and connected it all up to my computer monitor . I would have preferred the cameras to capture a more "wide-angled" view. But, after I tweaked every adjustment to my personal preference, including the motion detection sensitivity settings, I am happy to say, it is fully operational to my liking. All in all, a good value. Get it. July 13, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Go ahead, Get it! Maybe the color isnt the absolute best, but it gets it done! My GREEN grass looks brown, and maybe I dont have the thing set up right, but the image is clear and the night vision is nice. Set to record on motion, saves alot of space. Had trouble figuring the "user" name to log in to change settings and had to call C S to get it! Its ADMIN if you are looking to buy this. I would have liked to see a wider field of view but if positioned right, you can get it all in. This is in use at my home to catch vandals and ppl who let their dog go in my yard and leave it for me to dispose of! Transfer to USB is really easy, but the port is on the rear and need to move the dvr to get to it. Front usb would have been the right choice. I had an old 17" lcd pc monitor to use but you can use an old tv or monitor you might have laying around. Over all, its a great system and would not hesitate to buy another!!! April 7, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It is what I expected I wanted a good system but couldnt afford a lot. I have now set it all up and it was faily easy. the configuration menu's are a little confusing but I was able to figure them out. the night vison is up to 14 long as there is some light it is pretty good. One of my outside cameras that is watching my driveway where there is no light the night vison is not that great..might have to upgrade the cameras. I like that I can view my home from anywhere with computer. I wish the cables were a little longer...maybe 70 ft instead of 60. all and all for the price it is a good system and I would recomend it for those with not much to spend. October 28, 2012
