Style Name: with Eight 480TVL Cameras Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
ThisQ-See 8-Channel Security Surveillance System works well for my needs and is also a very good value. To be perfectly clear, this is not a high-end system with high definition cameras, but it isn't priced like a high-end system either. This is somewhat of a budget system that exceeded my expectations for what you get and how well it works. Here are my observations:

Note: We already own a Defender, a Zmodo, and another Q-See System used to monitor our small business, so it was easy for me to switch out the main DVR unit and cameras to do a side-by-side comparison. The other systems have roughly the same specs and features

Our Use - We recently bought an old but very large building for my wife's business and needed a way to monitor the six exits, the retail shop space, and 2nd floor training areas.

Style Name: with Eight 480TVL Cameras Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This Q-See QT228-8B5-5 Security DVR is an economic security system. The included cameras are not high-definition cameras. It only provides 480 TV lines of resolution. Also, it only comes with 24 infrared LEDs for night vision. With reasonable daylight, I can tell people's face at 50 feet away. However, at low light or no night conditions, I really have hard time to tell people's face at 15 feet away. Don't get me wrong, I do see objects at 40 feet away under total darkness condition, but I just can not identify a person that far in low light (or no light) condition. If night vision is important in your case, consider other premium models with more infrared LEDs (like 36, instead of 24).

This system allows remote monitoring via a smartphone or PC. Though I am somewhat familiar in configuring my router and my cable modem for remote access, the provided manual is not clear enough in guiding me to take advantage of this remote monitoring feature. If remote monitoring is essential to your needs, you should download the manual and go over the manual first to make sure you can handle the networking side.

The DVR itself is very easy to operate. The 500GB disk space can store up to 2 year's of video.

All in all, for residential homes, I think this Q-See QT228-8B5-5 is a cost-effective security system. I would recommend this set to my friends.

Style Name: with Eight 480TVL Cameras Verified Purchase
I bought this for a friend who owns a small store. It was easy to set up and use. I also bought her a 26" monitor with HDMI connection.
The picture is clear day and night. The cameras are much smaller and inconspicuous than the old ones. I recommend this system

Style Name: with Eight 480TVL Cameras Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This Q-See DVR and camera package is my first experience with a Q-See product or any security camera and DVR system and I'm generally very impressed. The cameras are what I expected, everything needed to install the cameras and wiring was included and easy to use, and the DVR was essentially ready to start monitoring and recording the cameras out of the box.

In more detail, the cameras are roughly the quality of a non-HD TV broadcast in daylight or strong artificial light. I've installed 6 of the 8 cameras at house corners and doors and under light, any person in the camera view is easy to distinguish. The cameras are a reasonably wide angle so they capture a lot of viewing area. The story is a little different in low light or no light. While they do have night vision and you can see objects as far as 40 feet away in total darkness, it would be hard to identify a person from more than 15-20 feet away or outside the center of the camera view in the low light/no light mode. So, depending on how important absolute positive ID of a face or other features are in no light, you'll want to take careful attention to get the cameras installed precisely to aim with a persons face in the center of the view within 10 feet or so of doors, windows, or anything else you are monitoring.

The DVR itself is pretty easy to use at least for the basic functions. The hookups for all of the cameras are easy to do and once you have it connected to a monitor the cameras are on and recording after some simple setup steps. Rewinding, reviewing, and configuring special recording features isn't as easy and this is one area where the manual is little help. If you've come to expect software and electronics manuals to be lousy, this manual is pretty much what you'd expect.
