4 out of 5 eggsNice little system.

Pros: DVR - Nice little DVR, easy to understand/setup. Operation can be a little laggy at times causing you to double input on passwords etc. Using the system to activate during motion, easy to setup motion detection area, sensitivity seems a little random (scales 8 to 1). I like the multiple user feature and the remote viewer stuff. Small enough to not take up much space. I like all the viewing options and the playback is simple.

Cameras - Good quality, not meant for tighter spaces. Should be used more as a broad overview of an area (larger entry way etc). Small entry ways are very hard to capture properly. Night vision was good about 10 FT away (facial recognition). I am recording in D1. Small cameras make them easy to hide. They come with decent mounting hardware. I would not put them out in harsh weather though. They are all metal cameras w/ a metal cover, but they do not seem like they could take direct weather. They need to be under and overhang. Easy to mount.

Cons: DVR - Laggy in the GUI. Wish there was keyboard input. The motion sensing can be weird (like I said above). Just have to do a lot of testing.

Cameras - Bad in small spaces.

5 out of 5 eggsDVR works great

Pros: Already had cameras in place so I cannot comment on the cameras that come with this. The dvr is great though. It is very easy to set up and get going. Took 30 min to set up including reading the manual.

Cons: the 500gb storage is only saving the past 2 weeks of data then overwriting it. Quality is set to best and resolution is CIF. I thought it would be able to store more than that.. Anyone have any comments?? Is that normal?

Other Thoughts: FYI don't bother setting up a static ip. go to the last part of the networking section and just set up the remote viewer through a provided night owl sight. You get your own custom web address, for free. Very cool.
