This review is from: Zmodo KDS8-NARQZ4ZN 8 Channel H.264 Level Surveillance DVR Kit
Pros: Great price, small and lightweight
Cons: After adding a WD 2TB AV HDD I ran into some beeping/rebooting problems. But fixed them (see other)
Could use at least one external sensor input. But for the price? Hey.
Also mouse was intermittently functional.
Other Thoughts: After adding a WD 2TB AV HDD I ran into some beeping/rebooting problems. Did some YouTube research and found that if the HDD wasn't freshly formatted with NO cameras plugged in, it would do this. Still had the problem after the format. I even ran SpinRite on the HDD for over 100 hours (level 2) but found the drive had no errors. Finally I decided to replace the intermittent mouse and that took care of the beep/reboot problems. Good thing too because my dog was afraid of the beeps and had abandoned me.
This unit runs hot with no fan so added a couple of micro squirrel cage fans plugged into the socket provided for a fan and now all is cool albeit slightly less quiet than before.
Pros: Good brand, SSD and cheap
Cons: Smallish for many main drive OS needs (not mine).
Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace main HDD in EeePC with Leeenux Linux OS as the base OS for a system that normally runs Tails Live DVD. Leeenux has code that prevents overuse of SSD drives plus it's very small in size.
Boots and works a treat. This is my second one of these.
