Pros: Efficient Packaging. Metal mounts with lots of adjustment points. Small.
Cons: Short cables.
Absolutely the worst picture I've seen yet on a security cam - at night it's almost unwatchable. I have several other budget cameras on the same DVR and these KGuards are visibly FAR worse than any other. I'm actually p155ed off that I received cameras that were this bad.
Other Thoughts: Just wow.

Pros: You're getting maximum bang for your buck, that is for sure. I bought this set of cameras to compliment my recent purchase of the KGuard CA108-H02 4 Camera+8 Channel DVR (Newegg Item N82E16881377018). These are the same exact cameras that come with that 4 Cam system. Now I have a full 8 cam system and I LOVE IT. I have 100% perimeter coverage now.
The color and clarity of these cams are amazing for the price. Unless you're planning on spending $1000 on a single cam, you can expect the same performance on these little guys as you can on cams costing four to five times more. My friend has $200 Samsung Cams and these look just as good (except he has MANY more IR LEDs so his night vision is better). But with 8 cams, I have plenty of night vision to go around. I so not need to the cam to see more than the 30 feet it is capable of in complete dark. My other cams will take over when that distance is exceeded.
Cons: The mounting bracket nut that tightens against the cam is too large for use on the rear hole of the cam. It will make contact with the wire coming out of the cam. I had to replace it with a smaller standard nut.
Also, the mount for this cam pack is NOT the same for the mounts included with N82E16881377018. I preferred the combo mount. The combo mount had a port to route the wiring through. I accommodated with this configuration (a solid base) by covering up my hole and only leaving enough room for the wire. Also these mounts only have three screw holes while the others had four. The wing nuts on these have plastic grips while the wing nuts on the others were true metal wing nuts.
The four way power splitter was BAD. I thought nothing worked until I realized that splitter had a bad center pin. I had to make a work around until I get a better power supply for the entire system. The power supplies included with the KGuard stuff are kind of weak.
Other Thoughts: I really put a lot of time into finishing touches and strive for a professional look. These cams have the appearance of being pro when installed right.
Some tips I will share: Build your mounts to the cams all at once while sitting down and relaxing. Apply thread lock to all of the screws and nuts. Use pliers to help grab the shafts to get a nice snug fit. Back out the mounting plate screw and thread lock that as well.
Once mounted, finish the wire off with some loom and zip tie it to the mount. Use your mobile phone app to position the cams so you can make real time adjustments. Bring some pliers with you and use them to lock down the wing nuts once you get the positions just right. But remember, NOT TOO TIGHT or you might break the wing nuts or screws.
Certainly a 5 Egg product when you consider the price to performance ratio - even with the minor issues.
