eSecure ES18C380 700 TVL Sony Effio DSP 2.8~12mm CCTV 36 IR Vandale Security Camera
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Metal housing, robust.

Cons: Fat inline control box

Other Thoughts: If the little inline control box to access the cams internal menu system was able to break-away from the unit it would be much better.... Having to drill massive 1" holes through walls just to feed the wiring through stinks.

Rosewill RSVA-11001 8 channel + 4 Sony 1/4
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It works and is stable w/2TB drive. Included cams are good.

Cons: Dosen't flag recordings when motion zone has been violated, which defeats the ultimate purpose of buying system. You have no idea if anything is going on without reviewing hours of footage. The unit is SUPPOSED to have an "alarm" function which tags events in red, BUT IT DOESN'T WORK. I've tried many settings, upgraded firmware and even contacted Rosewill for help, all efforts were fruitless. I'd have purchased a different unit if I knew that at the time.

Other Thoughts: Instruction manual stinks. It lists the functions without describing them, so you have no idea what some of the settings mean.
I'm ready to sell the DVR or try and flash LINUX on it for better functionality.

TRENDnet TV-IP410 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 SecurView Pan/Tilt/Zoom Internet Camera
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive and works as advertised. Lasted the winter mounted up under the eve of my garage. Motors still work witrh no locking-up or reset issues. Rock soilid so far.

Cons: Manual focus

Other Thoughts: I disassembled ther unit and removed the IR filter to increase night response. Worked great, I can see a bit better in low light conditions... but an IR floodlight would dramatically help it out. If I get a chance I'll upload a tut video in case you want to remove the IR filter as well.
