4 out of 5 eggsGreat system for this price point

Pros: Price
Color Cameras
Viewable from smart phones

Cons: Software is not the most user friendly or intuitive

Other Thoughts: With this being an inexpensive camera DVR unit, it suited my needs perfectly. Being that it was for installation at work, I had the A/V guys who did all of my other stuff install the system. That being said, I can't comment on how easy or difficult it was to connect however, they said it was easy aside from running wires -- which is a site specific obstacle.

I am very pleased with the set-up & the ability to view what is going on from my phone is incredible & worth the cost alone! Plus there is NO SUBSCRIPTION to anything therefore no annoying monthly charge. With that being said, I challenge any of the previous negative reviews because if the installation is performed by someone who knows what they're doing, none of those problems would have arisen in the first place.

The reason I gave it 4 'eggs' is b/c even though the software both at the computer on site & smart phone is manageable, it is definitely NOT intuitive. Additionally, backing up segments of recorded data will most likely require having someone who has done it before offer a tutorial or making a phone call to the friendly tech support people at ZModo.

Overall, this is a great system for the price. The way I was looking at it is I was going to be out the cost of installation regardless so it didn't make sense to invest in a super expensive system since I'm not running a casino or anything where zooming in was absolutely critical. For my purposes, this set-up works great!

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Includes a HDD.

Cons: Does not include enough connections to power everything in the box. Very cheap cameras. Instructions are basically useless. BNC connections to TV?

Other Thoughts: Not really worth the money. Save for a better system.

5 out of 5 eggsINCREDIBLE value!!

Pros: Plug-and-play! Took me just a few minutes to get this thing setup. The package comes with everything I need. The price is absolutely unbeatable for what's included. DVR, 500GB hard drive, 4 cameras, remote, USB mouse, and lengthy and sturdy camera cables. I love this!

Cons: I haven't been able to connect remotely via a browser due to unsigned ActiveX errors on IE. Not a big deal for me as I'll be using Android for remote viewing.

3 out of 5 eggsSo far its working great ... camera quaity is poor

Pros: Fairly easy to setup. Works great with IE on PCs (follow directions on how to setup). Also works flawless with both iPhones and an iPad. Playback works as well!

Cons: Had it working with Safari on a MacBook for a day, still cant get it to work on a MacBook Pro. I've searched google and cannot find an answer for this. The MacBook wont pull up the page and the MBP pulls up the page but the camera windows are white.

The color on the cameras SUCK. I've tried every adjustment ... CIF, D1, HD1, all 3 look horrible. Tried changing hue/saturation/brightness/contrast, none made an improvement and in fact it almost made it look worse. I found other comments about the colors being washed out and not showing correctly (blue shows up as red - green shows up as yellow), that is a big egg loser.

Other Thoughts: Price was great, overall it works great. Really wish the camera color was better and it works on my Macs!!

4 out of 5 eggsIts ok

Pros: Cheap! The system is very inexpensive for what you get. The DVR is ok, fairly easy to use and set up. The camera's appear to be decent build quality.

Cons: The cables are cheap. I get some noise on all the cameras. I tested it with a shielded cable and it was clearer.
The DVR can take a while to boot up and start responding.
The DVR's web interface works ONLY on IE6. I couldn't get it working on IE7 or IE8. Don't plan on using the web interface. Its awful.
The IR led's light up ok, but its not great in the dark. Its almost like shining a dim flashlight in the center of where the camera is looking.

Other Thoughts: I'm on an android phone, and the mobile app they recommend is ok, but I found a better one that supports this DVR. Its called IP Cam Viewer. The free version works great for viewing the cameras.

I think with some better cabling, this could be a top notch budget system.

It took me and a friend about 3 hours to get the thing completely hooked up.

Honestly, for a budget system, this thing is great! The whole system cost less than a single high end camera!
