1 out of 5 eggsNeed more data to make decision

Pros: No opinion yet; haven't bought one... and won't so long as they leave out critical data on which to base an intelligent decision.
I need to know if this item works under 32 bit OS, or 64 bit OS. I've been burned twice on this sort of missing information. I will not spend another dime if I can't see if an item is fully compatible with my system... I have two items I cannot use because I didn't know they weren't fully compatible until I opened the box and read the manual.

Cons: All I had to say is said above.

2 out of 5 eggsNeeds Improvement

Pros: Real-Time H-264
Multiple Audio Channel Recording
Looks nice......

Cons: 1) When setting a motion box, if your detection area is set to the furthest right of the picture, when the system reboots the motion detection box disappears. Ensure your selection area does not include the furthest right side.
2) When SuperDVR display is set to display ONE large channel with multiple smaller channels surrounding, the ONE large displayed channel will no longer detect Motion for recording.
3) SuperDVR will randomly STOP recording live video and lock up. You can still view the live stream remotely and locally but the actual system running SuperDVR will be in a frozen locked state requiring a hard boot of the system.
4) SuperDVR IS NOT supported by CMS (Central Monitoring System) software anymore. No more CMS and you are forced to use web browser based monitoring which eliminates any possibility of remote off-site recording, monitoring and alarm supervision. This nulls a very important “security” aspect of any camera monitoring system.

Other Thoughts: The newest “dongle” card has major software support issues. Upgraded from old legacy MPEG4 cards and sorry I did.

Software that shipped with the cards is the incorrect version requiring you to download the correct version from Q-See (driver oriented). Not a problem but Q-See’s software (SuperDVR) for these cards (newest dongle version) is broken.

Systems running the BNC type cards of this model number do not have the issues that the newest “dongle card” have.

Hopefully Q-See will fix their issues and return to supporting their products to a level expected by professionals.

2 out of 5 eggsIt could be SSOOO much better

Pros: This product could be SSSOOOOO MUUUCHHH better had it not for its poor software development. the card itself has all the right capabilities. the fact that it encodes in H-264 in real-time is the #1 selling point for me. And it has 120fps of maximum bandwidth, which is divisible up to 4 channels.

Cons: now onto the real problem. THE SOFTWARE is poor. in fact it's poorer than poor. it's cumbersome to use. it's intrusive in a way that you have to have it open for it to record. ideally, programs like this should be able to automatically startup with the windows "minimized" to the system tray; that way it is constantly functioning in the background doing its job without needing the program to be opened right in-your-face. there's no way for you to reposition the program window too. i can't remember the last time i wasn't able to drag the program window to reposition at a different place, maybe back with windows 3.1?. But my #1 biggest issue with the software which i absolutely can't take is that it disables Aero in windows 7. there's just no way to tell it to NOT disable Aero. those of you with VISTA or Win7 will understand how annoying that can be. so in order for you to record your surveillance footage, and/or just to watch the Cams in live, you have to live without Aero.

Other Thoughts: i am seriously thinking about returning this purchase for another competing product that might not have as good of a hardware capability, but at least the operating software will be up to the standard. i might consider to keep it if there's a way to bring back Aero.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent, low-cost security solution

Pros: Easy installation. Stable software. Solid Reliability.Used this card to build a dedicated security DVR. I am monitoring 2 wireless cameras-one is a 2.4ghz, and the other a 900mhz. I believe the use of 2 bands reduces the problem of interference. Still, as below reviewer states, wired is better.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I installed a cameras at both front and back door due to a rash of violent home invasions in my city. Cameras are great, but remember:
" When seconds count, the police are only minutes away."

4 out of 5 eggsReliable card, wrong photo!

Pros: 1. This is an actual DVR PCI card, not a bunch of cables like the photo shows! (google the part # to see the right product).

2. This card DOES WORK under Win 7 x64. Disregard those reviews that claim that "there are no drivers for x64".

3. customer service is excellent (refer to my cons to why i emailed customer service).

4. Easy to install

5. Software is very good, it has motion detection (refer to other thoughts on why you should not buy wireless cameras) as well as a wide array of scheduling, alarm, and other management functions, such as controlling movable cameras, etc.

6. Good manual (didn't need it anyway)

7. Emails any motion detection screenshots (refer to other thoughts)

Cons: The friggin SuperDVR (where you see your cameras) window is unmovable!!! I got a dual monitor desktop, i was planning to have my dvr 24/7 on my small screen why I use the big one (primary). The SuperDVR is unmovable. It is permanently attached to your primary monitor, You can minimize it, but not move it, much less drag it to the other screen. Emailed q-see, responded in 24 hrs, and confirmed that "it can only be used in the primary monitor".

Other Thoughts: DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT buy wireless cameras. Why?

The motion detection is based on the image being captured by the camera. If there is any change in the pixels of user-selected hotspots, the motion sensor will be triggered and logged.

With this being said, if the camera is somewhat far, does not have a line clear line of sight, or it just has a bad reception, any glitch, line, distortion, blur, interference or any type of alteration of the static image, will trigger your motion sensor.

Now, every time your signal is interrupted or distorted, even by half a second, will be taken by SuperDVR as motion, and will send you an email for each motion detection. And no, adjust sensitivity doesn't work.

Just stick to wired cameras, stop being cheap. Invest in wired cameras. Invest in wired cameras. Invest in wired cameras.

Stick to wired cameras. They are cheaper in the long run, and more reliable.
