4 out of 5 eggsNormal

Pros: Installed in coin laundry for my friend.
Good wide angle, Decent picture quality.
Acceptable low light performance for the price.
GUI is just same as other DVR in the market.
iOS app just work fine with static IP configuration.

Cons: No HDD...but for the price, this is acceptable.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking this budget DVR, you already expect the quality.
This is just normal DVR. For price, its performance is very decent.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value for price

Pros: Just played with it a couple of days now first system I've ever had. I was impressed with the software. Picture quality isn't the best but for the price not complain it will do the job. Motion detection works fine, (up close acid test will be when it's set up) so finding where it records activity is simple.

Cons: Not really played with it enough to evaluate this.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value; Great Starter Unit

Pros: Zmodo is always Good Value compared to other low and medium end manufacturers.

You get a complete DIY 4 cam system (you only need to buy an HD): DVR, cams. cables, 2 transformers (one for the DVR one for the cams), software, remote and even a mouse.

Can record up to D1 resolution so it'll work with high res cams.

Relatively good firmware / software. (with minor exceptions). The Web Client uses ActiveX so you need I.E. and it won't work on Android or iPhone (see note below on apps). The stand-alone NVMS (Network Video Monitor System) gives you lots of control on an easy to use UI. Both give you motion, alarm triggered recording, PTZ and all the features of a sophisticated monitoring system.

Hard-wired alarm inputs (use w trip wire, window, door open sensors etc.)

For the price you can't afford not to buy it. This is way cheaper that $30/mo. for s service which isn't going to do much more.

Good Support - Chat always available. Phone Bus Hrs. CT

Cons: Minor UI Quirks. - One star off for that.

No HDD here but I wouldn't expect a hundred dollar HD for this price would you?

This is only a 4 channel unit which is very basic. If you're in a house you will want 8 cams in relatively short order.

Relatively low res cams but they are 1000% better than nothing. You can always upgrade your cams and still use these for tight areas or to watch your better cams.

Seriously Buggy Web App. but that's not really what you're buying here. Catch my review 'Reconnecting' Issue: Serious Bug renders this app useless! on G. Play.

Other Thoughts: You must use an AV rated hard drive as it will endure full time duty. A newer NAS drive may work also but check the ratings carefully. (I use a WD Red and it stays cool w no problems in over a year of duty. I'm sure the equivalent Seagate would work just as well). A standard drive such as WD Black or Seagate Barracuda will burn up sooner or later. Also you must format your HD on the DVR since the format is a proprietary FAT! I pulled my hair out for two days over some lousy UI issues trying to re-format the HD recently while debugging the web app. I was using the remote and as soon as you went to the HDD screen it would say 'Formatting' right next to the progress bar and you couldn't move the cursor (stuck). I presumed it was trying to format the drive but was having a problem since it flagged the drive as 'exception' (I deleted the partitions). It turns out this screen works only with a mouse and 'Formatting' was really a button (which should have been labeled 'Format') A strange coincidence of two quirks. which is not the only UI issue. Another is that 'Frame Ratio' in the Web interface really means FPS. (Frame ratio to me implies aspect ration e.g. 4:3 16:9...)

Believe the card is made by Geo Vision.

5 out of 5 eggsworth the investment

Pros: This security system is a great value it works as advertised and was an easy setup. The cables that come in the package are 60ft which was enough slack for my setup. The mobile viewing works very well and so does the night vision. The DVR is very nice, it has plenty functions and settings to fit any security needs. Using the mouse that is included with the system is the best way to operate the DVR.

Cons: The manual isn't very user friendly for a non-technical person. I was able to get my questions answered by contacting Zmodo tech support.

Other Thoughts: You will need to purchase a SATA II (3.5 inch)  hard drive to be able to record, but installation is pretty simple and easy. I would recommend getting 1TB in storage space.

4 out of 5 eggsMy review of ZMD-DD-SBN4/8 N82E16881523056 - I would purchase it again

Pros: I purchased on a pre-order price considerably lower than what is current.. I am glad I didn't wait. I ordered the SBN4 and was surprised to find a SBN8 DVR inside the kit. Appears to have been packaged that way. The DVR is actually pretty nice. I ordered a 2 TB SATA drive (N82E16822236603) to go with it. It was pretty easy to install. Booted up and just poked through all the menus. Mouse makes it a little easier (included). It looks like it will integrate into alarm systems.. it also has a lot of advanced camera controls that are not applicable with what comes with it, but adding different cameras would be easy. I have managed to get it networked with my router and email. It has some nice motion detection options, but no control on period that I can find. Sensors are ok for the price. Not sure you could read a license plate from very far away, but you could probably ID someone. Night vision is black and white. Sensors auto adjust. For inside usage the colors are a bit wonky. Good given the price. I have not tried full sun. Combined video and power cabling.. no sound on the sensors, but DVR can take 4 sound inputs. Remember that I ended up with the 8 ch DVR. I have managed to get their viewer software working on both a Lenovo tablet (wireless) and an original Verizon droid. I haven't explored the PC operation at all. I have not tried the network file sharing options. There are a lot of nice feature in the DVR. It is pretty much perfect for what I wanted. Nice design overall. People are being too critical.

Cons: manuals and tech support are poor.. they have a lot of knowledge base articles that are helpful, but they are a little incomplete. I tried their online chat.. don't bother.. I think I got someone in China. They just referred me to the online articles and couldn't answer specific questions. But on the plus side, if you can set up a firewall router, you can probably figure this thing out. The unit does not power off properly. It ends up locking up. Not a big deal for an always on device. Website and Facebook had a lot of comments about the viewer software not working with i-Phones.. it looked like the manufacturer was addressing them. The zmododns service is not yet supported by this device (server name is not available on the list) so expect to have to use or for setting up ddns. No-ip is free in 30 day blocks or about 15$ a year.. seemed to work. Only has a VGA and BNC output. That's BNC, not coax. It does not have HDMI. It has no VGA cables supplied. A normal VGA monitor worked with it, but again, older style VGA connector. I haven't tried any adapters but they should work. Some of the menus have spelling errors. Software isn't perfect yet, but for the cost and complexity it is actually pretty good. Cable holes on the camera end will need to be fairly large to get the cable plug through.

Other Thoughts: The default ports are 80,5050,6050, and 7050. The 7050 is the port the zviewer expects. Downloaded the droid version from Google app store with no issues. The viewer account is the one on your DVR. I recommend creating an account other than its admin and not allowing remote configuration. There is an option to disable the remote network access.. it is a double negative so be careful to read it correctly for how you want it set. Be sure to get a harddrive designed for DVR usage. There is a link in one of the knowledge base articles to some online utils to check your ports and also what your current IP assignment is.. helpful until you get ddns setup. Looks like mine shipped with the latest firmware. Last thing the light shield and base mount are interchangeable so swap if your image is upside down after installation.
