    Recording Resolution
    The QC448 surveillence DVR records video in real-time CIF resoluiton and in D1 resolution which offers a larger image.

    DVR FEATURES:


    H.264 COMPRESSION

After receiving the DVR and cameras I decided to set the system up temporarily so I could configure and test locally and remotely before installing on my third floor. Boy am I glad I did that!!! After 2 days, a new router, and 6 hours of reading all I could get to work was the local viewing on my LAN. 1st problem was that I have Verizon FIOS and the router they provide is trash. It would not let me forward my ports so I could gain access to the DVR from a remote internet connection. So I purchased a new ASUS router. After the new router was installed I was able to get connected on my mobile device, I phone 5, as well as on my local network. Still no remote internet connection. I searched Q-see.com and read everything I could find even searching Google. Nothing helped, I followed everything in could find to get a domain set up and still couldn't get remote access. Now to the 2nd problem, DVR set up instructions. What a disaster and how confusing. Once I called Q-see and talked with a wonderful technical support person, her name was Faith by the way, she had me up and running in minutes. Come to find out, everything sent with the system including the manuals are wrong. Even the software they send you to monitor the DVR has misleading information in it. All in all the system is wonderful. The customer support is wonderful, if you don't mind waiting to get through. But I must warn anyone looking to get this system on the internet to monitor remotely. Don't waste your time with the instructions, once you get the dvr and cameras plugged in, plug the network in and then call them. Hopefully you get someone as knowledgeable as Faith. The technical support will have you running in no time. Hope this helps anyone else from having the same issues I had.

I like the cameras and the ease of hooking them up . I am not very happy because i can not get the remote monitoring to work and it is very frustrating. Every time we go in to change options to connect to the modem they do not work and there is no phone number to call for help. They offer free tech support on the web, but sometimes you need to talk to someone in order to get things resolved.

In a rural area with no street lights and many minutes away from the nearest police, this gave me the eyes I needed to see what is around my house day and night.
Easy setup and operation. Has worked well even at winter temps below zero degrees.
I patched the video output into the TV antenna system, which is wired to every room and TV int he house using a Video to RF Converter. (Dynex RF Modulator) Now all I have to do is switch any TV to AIR CH 4 and I can view the 8 cameras. See who is knocking at the door or coming up the driveway without getting off of the couch!

After reciving the unit i went to table test the unit to make sure all camera's and cords worked. The sytem is set up out of the box to a high resolution screen setting so when i tried to hook up using a vga cord it would not display so i call customer service to be put on hold for a hour before being hung up on called back one more hour on hold. I had to rewire system to work from rca cords to get screen to work long enough to get into system and reset screen setting to lower res to work on my monitor. Now one week into use the hard drive has froze 3 diff times in a week. keeps my screen locked onto old pictures until i reboot dvr. Amazon is sending a replacement but i would not buy this one again and if this new unit does the same i will be sending all of it back. It would not be fun to take down 8 camera's 1000 feet of wires and 2 days worth of work becouse of cheap china junk. No where in discription does it say comes with wires for camera so i ordered 8 150 foot cords only to have cords in the box Buyer beware of this unit. will keep fingers crossed that the new hard drive does not freeze up also.

UPDATE: replacement unit arrived as i was only going to swith out hard drives as the one i bought freezes all the time. I hook up new hard drive only to have it in constant spin mode once its powered up it makes a loud spinning noise like a bad hard drive in search mode. Amazon has no link for replacing a replaced order. So stuck with a piece of s*** that freezes as i sent back the replacement order. Beware of this cheap china unit.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I worked with and installed a 16 channel Defender surveillance system last year in my home, so when I started putting this Q-See system together, I found myself comparing what differences and similarities between the two were. They are remarkably similar, with a few key differences.

Cameras:
The cameras for both the Q-See and the Defender are virtually the same. They are shaped the same, are about the same size, and the plastic weather shield hood over each camera slides forwards and backwards on both brands. Their night time viewing distance looks to be virtually the same. You can mount one of these cameras to your garage and see people walking on sidewalks and driving by in the street in the middle of the night, no light needed. If you happen to have a porch light on, this extends the night time viewing distance even further, providing some light for the cameras to pick up on.

Both brands of cameras have color video for the daytime, and grey scale black and white for night. The only difference I've seen with this between the two brands in the Defender cameras work very distinctly in either color or black and white. You can even see the cameras switch into black and white mode when the daylight gets too low. The Q-See on the other hand seems to work in both black and white and color, all at the same time. When testing out the lighting, I was able to get the cameras to focus on dark objects very close up in low light, and the camera started viewing it in the night vision gray scale, while other areas of the room that more more brightly lit, still showed in full color. It was a very interesting effect.

While the colors and hues are adjustable on both brands of systems, I think the brightness that comes through on the Q-See system is a bit better.
