Pros: -Excellent cameras with a large viewing angle.
-System holds a 2TB drive, which records for over a month.
-Can backup and/or record to a PC via the web interface. This allows remote recording, which comes in handy if someone takes the DVR or it gets destroyed in a fire. I recorded this way until I got a 2TB hard drive.
-Able to view via a smartphone and PC with IE installed.
-Low cost system.
-Can record via the web even with no hard drive.
-Can take snapshots and video clips on your PC after backing up the file or files to your PC.
-Comes with a video viewing application on the included disk.
Cons: Would be nice if there was keyboard support at the DVR because typing in a complex user ID and password is slow with the mouse. It's not a big deal, because I mostly access the unit with a PC via the web. The only time I really need to access the DVR directly is to change the IP address or to reboot the system.
Other Thoughts: I have had two of these systems running for a few months with no problems. Getting all the settings just right took a few hours, but for the money I saved, it was worth it. I have had to review sections of the video a few times and found it is a lot easier if you backup the files to a PC first before reviewing. This allows you to see more of the frames when you fast forward at 32x.
I record at the highest resolution which gives me 7 frames a second, and that is more than enough to see what is going on.
Pros: Easy setup. Works great. Records to an internal hard drive or to a computer via the Internet.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
