Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy set up it comes with everything you will need and the image looks better than a 700tvl I installed in the past. the casing of the cameras has a unique and a cool hard shell. I would definitely recommend this product. May 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow! Bought this a month ago, easy system to install. Quality of videos are superb and the interface is easy to use. I've had no problems installing it, and customer service was excellent in helping setup. Able to playback or watch live. Clear night time playback and live viewing. November 25, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by My Review I purchased this product after what I thought was an exhaustive research on the internet. I purchased this product about a month ago and had it up and running for abour 2 weeks. After 2 days up and running there was rain and wind storm. I thought the 25 mph winds had knocked the camera loose as the video was upside down. The camera was not loose. I reset the DVR and it was fine. Some other issues but will discuss with tech support.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great system for DIY's I bought this system on a Labor Day sale, really can't beat it even at regular price, I installed it this weekend....and wow! Better than expected. Easy to install; hardest part is running wires in the attic. The picture is better than most I've seen and the night vision is really great. If you have even a little extra light in the area where cameras are pointed; you can get up to 100ft easy. Would highly recommend. I know I have only had it a few days, but I am really impressed with the quality of this system. Hopefully it will continue for many years to come and has already given my family peace of mind.
