1 out of 5 eggsNot good at all.

Pros: None

Cons: The cameras are low quality.
Persistently doesn't detect hard drive.
Forces you to use external.
Remote viewing doesn't work like it should.
Guard's warranty is non existent.
They are incredibly unresponsive in email and phone calls.
They've ignored me for more than 3 months and still haven't sent me an RMA form.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this cheap system. Spend a bit more money and save a lot of time and headache.

5 out of 5 eggsQuick, Clean and Value

Pros: fast setup, low heat, quiet, good quality.

inlcuded cameras in the kit are decent

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: For what you pay on this kit, you shouldn't be expecting CSI HD video. Its to give you a set of eyes while you're away. Worth the $ and if it fails, then buy another.

---MUST MUST use internet explorer with compatability mode enabled, or the web viewer wont work.

4 out of 5 eggsBest of 3 DVR 4 Camera Systems

Pros: Better than equivalent LaView and Aposonic systems. Newegg price. Records D1 resolution for 4 cameras at 30frames/sec.

Cons: Motion detect doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: Night time camera IR illumination and camera mounts are better than equivalent LaView or Aposonic systems. Be sure to choose a hard drive tailored for 24/7 video surveillance.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Product if it worked

Pros: Great system with 4 cameras that get a pretty good picture. Software seems good with many features and very customizable.

Cons: Wont detect 4 different hard drives ive tried to install.
2 WD blues (500gb, 1TB)
1 WD black (320)
1 Sea Gate (320)
Tech support consists of 1 guy apparently (Julio) who answered my call the first time but not the next 3 attempts.

Other Thoughts: I read another review that had the same problem as me. I will continue to try it but until I get a HD to be detected I cannot record anything. (Or possibly setup the cloud/network but the system is in my basement and I don't have a 50 foot Cat5)

5 out of 5 eggsBargain

Pros: Plenty of features. Easy to setup. Good quality.

Cons: Remote

Other Thoughts: Was a Bargain, bought it for $110, thanks for your email specials NewEgg. I added a hard drive, SATA cables were pre installed and it was truly a plug, reboot and play

4 out of 5 eggsKGuard Almost got it

Pros: The Video woks both in the dark (night) and the light (morning/day) and it actually looks half-way decent (so pretty good) Not hard to set up at all (very straight forward) and I got the security system for a STEAL I mean $99.00 would be a price that they would sell like hot cakes (very very well), especially because I will be recommending it.

Cons: Everything works on this Security set but one thing that is vital for my client. They wanted to be able to record to a hard drive but after installing a hard drive that worked before testing the DVR and after testing the DVR the hard drive did not get power or get recognized and the USB drive I tried after the hard drive got powered but it did not get recognized (did not show up on the hard drive devices.

Other Thoughts: I got a steal on it and would like a replacement/repair of the DVR so I can set up this sweet KGuard system for my client as it is exactly what they wanted but make sure that the name of the product lets you know that there is no hard drive preinstalled as I was looking at about 5-6 Security Camera Systems and besides the really nice sale dropping the price to $99.99 USD I also thought it had a HDD (hard disk drive) installed. It really is a decent system it is worth its current price $199.99 on sale from $299.99. I unfortunately would not spend the normal $299.99 price.
