Pros: This is Superb Drive for your home PC Surveillance System. I was having trouble with my other BN drive(s) that would get full and even though the software was set to over-write the already captured video. The now full drives would cause a problem with the OS software and i would have to literally reinstall the OS and all the other software. I discovered drive(s) would send a some sort code or signal that corrupted some area of the OS Software or the Video Capture Software or Both.
Now that i have replaced these drives with the New WD Purple Surveillance 1TB Drive i have no issues with this problem. Does a Great Job of doing the job it was designed to do.
I waited until the drive got full and then started to over-write the Old Video before i wrote this review because i wanted to Make Sure that the drive functioned as specified and i was not just having some other problem with a software bug. There is No Software Bug just a drive problem with video capture on a drive that can't handle this sort of 24/7 operation with video frames and other parameters that is needed for video capture software.
Cons: Does not arrest law breakers or slap them around...
Other Thoughts: The warranty could be longer. Instead of 3 years it should be (IMHO) like the WD Black Drives. Other than that the Royal Purple Drive is GreatREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hauppauge WinTV (HVR-1265) Hybrid TV Tuner w/ Video Recorder PCI-E x 1
Pros: I stated i would have to get another card for my wife and so i did.
This is a truly excellent card and so very easy to install and setup. I card is Top-Shelf and i just know my wife will enjoy it as she is on the PC doing her bills and other things.
This shows a different remote control that looks cheaper than the one received. I cannot state that is the one you will receive if you purchase this Puppy, but the one received is a Excellent part.
Cons: None i can think of except it does not offer thought control channel changing.
Other Thoughts: Did not come with a pizza and 6 pack.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: 1196 WinTV HVR-1250 Hybrid Video Recorder
Pros: Great Unit - I use it to watch my TV on my PC every time i have work to do and will miss some show - Why Record an OLD program when you can watch it as it is shown?
The little card works well with Windows 7 Pro and updates as needed when it has software Goodies to download.
Cons: I really do not like the fact you have to put the CD in the PC to get updates, but i understand why. Still it is a Hassle and the All-In-Wonder Card i use on XP is still a better card in many ways and you did not have to use the CD to get updates.
Other Thoughts: I really like the card, but some features from the 9800 All-In-Wonder should be incorporated into this Puppy.
Such as See though Desk-Top, PIP, and some others that i found Very Useful.
