We bought the system from Costco as they have discount these days. DVR works well in recording and playing. You can record in multiple camera while playing back. All features look good. The system seems to be quite stable. I bought a UPS from Amazon to add an additional layer of protection from the possible power failure. The extra feature they didn't mention is that the DVR can take image shot too when triggered. QM6006B Camera is 600 lines instead of 480 lines. But image quality doesn't seem to be better. The camera IP rating is very high which makes it excellent to be used outdoors.
Not so good: 1) Network setup can be a challenge. They didn't provide details on how to forward your port on routers. I am using Belkin router. You need to go to router's page from the same network, go to Virtual Server, and set the port over there. Also they didn't tell you that the network cable cannot be too long. I tried 100 ft cable at first and the network doesn't work well. I have to adjust the location of the DVR. 50ft long cable seems to be OK.
2) After searching event, you can double click the event to view the video (by the way, no time stamp on the video except the 30 min time range). But after that, you need to exit the video (a delay there) and go back to the search list. I would appreciate if I can click the event and view the video on the same screen.
All in all, this is a decent system, worth buying. If the network and video review issue are better supported, I will give it 5 stars.
