Pros: Works great, if you know how to use it.
Cons: People can't figure out how to use it. Funny
I had a customer continuously take the face off because he couldn't figure it out.
Other Thoughts: This card reader is just like of all the others ones, they use one PCB with the card readers mounted on BOTH sides of the board. This means that just like all the other ones, the reader on the bottom is upside down. This is because the readers are mounted on both sides. Duh, big red truck.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Zmodo ZP-KC1H04-P 4 Channel 4 IP 720P PoE NVR System (no HDD)
Pros: Great little system with a ton of features.
Small and easily put up out of the way.
Very easy to hook up.
No power wires, just a CAT5 cable.
You can make your own cables to an exact length.
No drilling of large holes for a BNC connector. just a 1/8" hole for the CAT5 cable.
Daytime, and indoor video is great.
Can very easily upgrade one or all of the cameras.
Cons: I'm very disappointed in the night time video. Up close the picture is good, but if you're 15+ feet away then all you can tell is that there's a person but they are not easily recognisable. This system seems to work better with no light at all, as a front porch or yard light can "wash out" the picture.
Other Thoughts: To anyone looking at this system, no it does not include a hard drive (HDD) as stated in the title. It does however use a 3.5" SATA desktop hard drive (HDD) and I believe it can take advantage of the speed of an SATA III hard drive (HDD). Please don't say you're a hight level "TECH GUY" if you don't know how to even install a hard drive.
Great little system that's very easy to setup and get going. Inside and up close night picture is very good but if you want to be able to distinguish between a cat and a dog at night at the end of the driveway, you might want to look at a different system or at upgrading one or two the included cameras.
*To clarify, I own the Zmodo ZP-KE1H04-S-1TB 4 Channel that included a hard drive.
Pros: Great price, packaging was the best I've seen in the past 4+ years I've bought from newegg. Looks like a new drive. It passed a simple hard drive test.
Cons: I realize this is a used "Referbished" drive, and that it's not like they gutted it and replaced all the parts, but what a disappointment!
After I got it I ran it through it's paces and was surprised to get several "Performance Related" issues.
After running software from a Hirrin's disk. I was surprised to see ,
1-"Raw Read Error"
2-"Spin Up Time"
they were listed as "Life Critical Attributes"
I don't think I would trust this drive even as a back-up drive.
Other Thoughts: All-in-all, newegg is great, but I wonder if any testing was done before it was sent out. Referbised means used, I realize that, but when I test it and it shows to have "Life Critical" issues and is at the end of its life, I get very disappointed. Seems like they got the drive on an RMA, dusted it off and sent it right back out not even knowing if it would work or not. I've had good luck with "Open Box" and "Referbised" items from newegg in the past, but this is really a let down. I'd hate to be the average Joe that would just install it load windows and think they were set not knowing they could loose everything because the drive is at a critical fail point. Don't get me wrong, it works, but I'm not putting my family history of pictures on it!READ FULL REVIEW
