3 out of 5 eggsProblems Resolved

Pros: Price-Easy to Use

Cons: First machine was defective, and took several attempts to have it replaced. However, after taking into account the attractive price, I feel Zmodo's response time was reasonable, and I am now satisfied with the DVR kit.

Other Thoughts: I posted a negative review, due to the machine only working for three months, then failing. After some persistence, and several calls to Zmodo Support, they replaced the defective DVR, and sent a new one. I am happy to say, the new machine is functioning well.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate of previous review

Pros: Attractive price, ease of use

Cons: Only functioned for three months, warranty support extremely troubling.

Other Thoughts: I had intended to write a positive followup to my previous review, however I cannot. Eventually, I received a call from Zmodo customer support. They gave me a warranty case number, as well as an address to send my defective equipment. In less than one week, the website indicated my equipment had been repaired, and it was sent back to me. Unfortunately, the equipment remains non-functional. In fact, it is in exactly the same condition as when I sent it in. Once again, I have tried several times today to followup with Zmodo, and have put on extremely long holds, and ultimately hung up. I would love to write a review about how well they stand behind their products, however it appears to me, this is not the case. Very upset!

1 out of 5 eggsAbruptly stopped working after 3 months, and no response from customer support

Pros: Price, relatively easy to use.

Cons: The DVR worked great for three months, then abruptly stopped working. I tried to contact customer support @ Zmodo, by telephone, on at least four occassions, but was put on hold for so long that I had to hang up after 20 minutes each time. I tried the "chat" support, but each time it said the department was unavailable. I sent Emails, which were never returned. All-in-all, I'm very disappointed with this experience. At a minimum, I would expect the product to work longer than three months!

2 out of 5 eggsMissing parts and no reply from newegg

Pros: Stright forward setup.

Cons: came without screws for the case cover and hard drive.
hard to search for events, just gives blocks of time.
newegg cust. support never replys

Manufacturer Response:

Valued Customer,

Thank you for your feedback about your unfortunate experience with Zmodo products and service. Please contact our customer support and we can ship you the screws you need for your case and hard drive. As far as searching for events, you can set up your DVR to motion detection recording to make it easier to search. If you do have it recording continuously, you will have to search by block times, but you can fast forward the playback up 8x.

The best way to contact us is sending an email to for any question you may have. Also, you can leave your phone number here, and have our tech
support give you a call back.

You may call us at 866-551-6881 extension 8117 so we will be able to work directly with you to help resolve you problems. We look forward to working with you and improving your Zmodo product experience.

2 out of 5 eggsVery Disapointed

Pros: Small, light weight, low heat. Camera's small easy to place in unnoticeable areas.

Cons: unit didn't work strait out of box. After spending 1 hour on hold for their tech staff, they pick up and say 'phone not working sorry' and hang up. Needless to say I called right back and gave them a ear full. Turns out the VGA Port is DOA, so only BNC video or RGB via a BNC to RGB converter. Camera's are extremely cheap, I could get better picture quality off of a 20 dollar web cam sorry to say.

Once I got video up, the menu settings far as the manual were concerned weren't even the same, so toss the manual, its worthless, once you get to the video screen the only thing that seems to be correct in the manual is the 'entering admin password', after that it was a guessing game as nothing was the same as what was printed in the manual.

Other Thoughts: I spent alot of time looking at different systems for a simple little video setup, and I thought this one would be good, from the advertisement pictures, supported features, and customer feed back at the various sites I looked at. Seems I was suckered into thinking this was a good unit when in fact its a poor cry to be a video security system. if your looking for something cheap to play with, and not wanting it for anything serious, then zmobo is for you, otherwise, look at getting a different system.

Manufacturer Response:

Valued Customer,

Your feedback has been very helpful and we thank you for that. You do have a warranty on this system and we can setup an RMA to get this DVR fixed or get you a replacement DVR. Also we our tech support would be able to walk you through the steps of setup and using your security system. We have our phone lines open 8am to 8pm central time zone Monday through Friday. Another useful resource can be the Zmodo Knowledge Base (

Please contact us by sending us an email to for any questions you may have. Also, you can leave your number at, so that our tech support can give you a call back.

You may also call us at 866-551-6881 extension 8117 so we will be able to work directly with you to help resolve you problems. We look forward to working with you and improving your Zmodo product experience.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Overall

Pros: Can get facial recognition up to about 9 feet based on the resolution of the camera. Easy to setup and get running. I was able to cut off the connectors and just splice the wires together to make it easier to run the wires through the walls. (at the camera end keep the two reds and two blacks together as there are 2 of each if you do this.) Overall decent for what you pay for. I plan later to get a higher res /zoomable cam for better resolution on the camera i use to view a large area but for small areas like the front entrace it's awesome.

Cons: Green shows up as pink, can't seem to adjust Saturation or Hue enough to fix this even remotely. I know it's just the cameras though so can replace one later to get a better image. DVRR doesn't allow network uploading, i'm not sure if any do, it's just something I wish it did so I would not have to hide the DVR in the house. Maybe a future zmodo upgrade? The wires are kind of thin and prone to interference but not so much it's annoying at least for me.

Other Thoughts: Overall it does what I need it too, could use 1 higher res camera for large areas and wish it had a network upload.
