2 out of 5 eggsUnacceptable Service

Pros: - Inexpensive

Cons: - No cooling fan
- No screws
- No rubber gaskets for HD to help vibration
- Terrible customer service

Other Thoughts: Received the item and just like another reviewer the cover just came right off. There were no screws holding it and no screws in the package. Also, in the manual it states to attach HD to shock absorbers, yet the customer service rep said those absorbers were the feet of the case.

Can't believe there is no fan included and even if there was, there are no holes to mount it or a way for air to get out of the case. The mainboard has a fan hookup. Other users have stated hard drives overheating. Customer rep said it would be fine. Anyone who deals with computers on a daily basis knows without proper cooling equipment will fail over time especially if a hard drive is recording 24/7.

Lastly, tried calling in 3 times and was stuck on hold each time for over an 1/2 hr each time.

This was my first experience with the company and I don't plan on every purchasing their equipment every again.

3 out of 5 eggsA little late, but a decent DVR

Pros: - Records security video with an HDD
- Shows all cameras simutaneously
- Very detailed and indepth menus
- Has a mouse for menu work
- Accepts upto 1Tb HDD

Cons: -Works well when it isn't burning up HDDs
-Menu is a bit complicated
-If you do not "Apply" settings each and every change you lose them
-Mouse is slow, choppy and unresponsive
-Menu changes are made more difficult by editing onsee and twosee with mouse clicks
-Does not record on external USB storage

Other Thoughts: An additional USB connection for a keyboard would be outstanding. A quicker processor would make the mouse movements less choppy. Ability to record via external USB connected storage would be a plus..Tech informed me that the external USB is for updating firmware, but it is unable to record via USB.
I lost two HDD's already because my unit was not equiped with a cooling fan, apparently they all are but mine did not have cooling holes punched or a fan wired and installed...hence really hot and burned up HDDs.....

RMA to be done now.

Zmodo's response: " Thank you for your email I would first like to apologize for the DVR unit that you received being incorrect. I am very sorry for any inconvenience this caused and any aggravation it has brought upon you. I would be happy to see that you receive the correct DVR unit and create a return for the defective item. "

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Easy to install and configure. Web interface, iPhone app, Android app. You can look at the cameras from anywhere.
All needed is in the box.

Cons: Cameras are not of a high quality. If needed purchase better cameras.

Other Thoughts: This is a perfect devise for the price. It offers much more that you would expect for this price. Web interface, client interface and mobile interface - all works.

4 out of 5 eggsleft button sticks

Pros: -awesome price
-good enough for moderate gaming
-the mouse isn't that small. Maybe your hand is too fat.
-button placement

Cons: -my left button is sticking randomly and double clicks when I just do a single click. I dont even use that button much. Kinda makes me mad.

Other Thoughts: Good stuff. But agitating problem.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Unit

Pros: Remote view of cameras with free android apps, remote view on local network, password protection, simple design, remote control. Good video capture quality.

Cons: No HDD for the purchase price is a negative in my opinion. No cooling fan for interior HDD, even though their appears to be a place for one, as well as a HDD FAN connector.

Other Thoughts: I've been running this for about two weeks now, and it works 100%. I had to disable the alarms, because those are annoying as you can get. I ended up putting a normal HDD inside this unit because of the extra cost of the " DVR rated HDD" was more than nessisary. I placed this DVR on top of a laptop cooler which makes the whole unit cool to the touch, and will be all the cooling this HDD needs and most likely more cooling than it would get inside a computer case.

Setup was a little funky, but I got used to the menu system and how you have to select the record blue box before clicking the record box. The instruction manual was very brief and did not provide a lof of detail however it did get me going. I Figured out the rest and this unit works pretty well considering its pricetag. I have two cameras connected to it and plug in an LCD monitor to leave on the TV stand so I can see the cameras as I watch TV. Nice unit.

5 out of 5 eggsBasic, but works well

Pros: Simple yet effective.
Priced fantastically.
Easy to use.
Records CIF AND D1 (Yes, the high rez.)

Cons: Not for beginners.
Video quality so so.
Web interface flakey.
Picky on hard drive used.

Other Thoughts: I set this up with 2 infra-red cameras from ZModo and was able to get it up and running rather easily. It took 3 tries on a hard drive, as it seems to be finicky on the drives you use. iPhone apps work well with it. UPNP works well. However, I could not get the web interface to work either in I.E. 9 or Chrome. Not sure why.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product, Great Price!

Pros: Good price (I paid $98 w/free s&h & no tax!), user friendly, easy to set-up, and has options to record in high quality (1024 X 768) or in a couple of channels even higher quality. Also has an option to hide/cover/make blank hidden/spy cameras that you don't want others to know about...amazing!

Cons: No HDD and only supports upto 1 TB HDD SATA. Once you buy the 3.5" SATA HDD, it fits perfect! and a breeze to install.

Other Thoughts: I haven't contacted tech support yet....I may have to in order to setup remote viewing, but I hope they are helpful..idk..i guess I'll find out

3 out of 5 eggsCannot tell if it records at D1 or CIF

Pros: Great price.
Reasonably good brand (see Cons).
Claims it can do D1 resolution (see Cons).

Cons: The marketing materials says recording resolutions are "selectable" and can record at CIF and D1. The user manul says it only records at CIF (352x288).
I cannot tell how to record at D1 (720×480).
This uses the same software as the other generic DVR units coming out of China (Zhuhai Raysharp Technology Co.).

Other Thoughts: D1 is the minimum resolution you want, which is 720×480. Anything lower and the images are too pixellated to be useful.
I am disappointed that I cannot figure out what this machine can and cannot do due to the contradicting marketing and product documentation.
