Pros: I bought this bundle while it was on sale for $179 back in January. I've only recently had a chance to set it up due to the long brutal winter we had. Setup was pretty easy and straight forward. I've had it running for almost a month now and overall I'm pretty happy with it. HD Cam picture quality is really good. Features like remote web viewing and ZSight App on the phone are really nice to have. I am able to monitor my cams from anywhere using my Android smartphone. I say if you are looking for a nice entry level system and can find it on sale, grab it.
Cons: Only things that I'll mention here are the clunky-ness of the NVR interface could be better. But it's not terrible once you get used to it. Also I had the system stop recognizing the hard drive one time, but a simple reboot fixed that and its been fine ever since.
One of my cameras was blurry right out of the box. But I simply sent an email to email@example.com and within an hour had my RMA setup. Then within a week I received a new camera. So the faulty cam is a con, but the fast resolution is a pro.
Other Thoughts: I'm going to do some research and see if there is a way to power these cams without the use of the NVR power. But it looks like it is non-standard PoE. Maybe someone has figured out a workaround.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great drive for the price and a good entry point into SSD drives. Cheap and fast as a boot drive, got it on sale and couldn't be happier with the purchase.
Cons: None, performs well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great video card, cheap and simple to install and setup. It's not going to break any benchmark records, but that's not why I bought it. I needed a cheap card for my daily driver PC with two monitors, which is not a gaming machine. I needed it to be quiet because it's on a desk in my bedroom and runs 24/7. This fan-less card fit the bill.
Cons: None as of yet. Performs well on a dual head system.READ FULL REVIEW
