StarTech VGASPL1VV 1 ft. VGA to 2x VGA Video Splitter Cable - M/F
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: Worked for about a month, then the images started getting dim, followed by the loss of all red and blue colors on one of the outputs. I barely moved the thing around and it's doing stuff like this, imagine if you used it on the go.

HEC Vigilance400 Black 0.5 mm Thickness SGCC MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case with Dual 8cm Fan, 2x USB2.0, Audio HP400 400W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Great Price
-Looks great
-Included fans are good for being only 80mm
-Case supports 120mm fans
-Good variety of drive mounting options (see "Other thoughts")

Cons: -The HDD LED is brighter than the sun, while the power LED is barely visible... a tad annoying
-The PSU's 12V rail is only 11.5A. Keep this in mind if you're tossing in a power-hungry CPU and GPU.
-The SATA power cables are a bit short for the 2.5" hard drive mount (see "Other thoughts")
-Front fan exhaust requires ample clearance UNDER the case for proper ventilation due to lack of vents on the front cover. Get thick rubber feet to keep this from being an issue.

Other Thoughts: The drive mounting specs are WAY off! Shame on you, Newegg!

Here are the correct specs:

1x 2.5" internal (mounts on bottom of case)
2x 3.5" internal
1x 3.5" external
1x 5.25" internal
1x 5.25" external

LaView LV-KDV0804B5B Complete 8 Channel Security DVR System Easy DIY Four 520TVL Infrared Surveillance Cameras (No HDD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Remote monitoring over LAN works flawless on iPhone app
-Very quick system recovery after power loss
-Fantastic price
-Relatively easy interface
-Can use an old TV or a newer PC monitor

Cons: -Awful user instructions (none for the smartphone apps)
-Reliability of remote monitoring over internet is hit or miss
-Remote download video format is not a common one (requires laviewcloud website to view)
-Remote viewing site only seems to work with Internet Explorer
-Included camera IR range is 15 feet at best; nowhere close to 50 feet

Other Thoughts: If you need security on the cheap, and this isn't your first rodeo, you've found the right choice. If you're a novice, stay away and look elsewhere.

Additionally, expect 4 cameras to require 1TB of hard drive space for one month's worth of recordings. Keep this in mind when you chose a hard drive.
