For those of you interested in mainly watching the cameras from your smartphone or computer, this is the product and brand to go with.  I have been installing security systems for several years now and Swann continues to impress me.  I use other brands because clients sometimes buy their own, but none have an easy setup and support like this brand.  I read the review about the DDNS server being out and the reason from the tech representative explaining why and I like Swann even more for that.  What many non-techs don't understand is that a DDNS server is something you have to pay for, but Swann provides this for FREE.  Not only that it seems like they are beefing it up so that it doesn't fail in the future.  With other brand DVRs I used other DDNS services I had to pay for and those would fail more times than i could think of.  I had clients call me every time it went out, all except customers who owned a Swann DVR.  The setup is very easy for the DVRs and with this new D1 and 30 frames per second on every channel it's amazing that it's available for this price from the top brand.  In my reviews I like to also provide hints on how to make setup easier for those future owners. See below.

Hints 1: test all equipment before running cables and doing any drilling, you never know if the shipping man handled package badly.  Good thing about Swann is also their 1 year warranty and great customer service so no problem is something arrives damaged.

Hint 2: Install DVR near router and monitor/TV you plan to watch it on. Swann is great in that it doesn't force you to buy their monitor, you can use your HDMI compatible TV or a regular computer monitor.

I am the ONLY person that posted real pictures. Be sure to check out my pictures. I wish someone had done it sooner.

July 16, 2013 UPDATE:

NOT Sony:
I opened up the camera and took a picture of the CCD chip. I assure you it is not Sony. In fact, I don't know what it is. It is not Sony, not Sharp, not Panasonic and not even cheap Korean. [...]

Opt for real Sony CCD. A real Sony CCD with less TVL will be better than this knock off CCD.

No IR Cut Filter:
If you don't know what this means take a look at the customer pictures section. You WANT a camera with IR Cut Filter.

Not Pro:
This is sold as "Pro System", well I posted 13 actual images on the product page. So, judge for yourself. I spent a week obsessing about CCTV systems and decided on this. It's going back.

The cameras are junk. 600 TVL means nothing. The images are blurry and the only option to adjust image quality is at the DVR using brightness, contrast, hue, saturation. There is no adjustment on the camera itself. 480 TVL cameras would be just as good, if not better.

This is NOT a full D1 DVR. It might record adequate D1 video if it had better cameras. While you can record 8 channels at D1, you can only play back 4 channels at a time. So, if you are actually scanning for an event you have to scan 4 channels, then scan again on the other 4 channels.

Why TruBlue?
I thought for sure the system would have blue LED infrared like some of the newer CCTV system. But it has the red ones. Why is it called TruBlue?

Style Name: 8-Channel, 8-Camera Verified Purchase
We purchased this system for our small business about a month ago and have been very pleased with it. It allowed us to catch one shop lifter, one person breaking an item, and determine who was at our registers when various errors occurred in the first two weeks alone. The quality is pretty solid for the price, especially the picture quality which easily allows you to see faces, even in the dark. Colors are correct, unlike other systems, the menu is a very easy to use graphic interface that is incredibly self explanatory. The kit comes with everything (hardware wise) you'll need to set up your system, besides a monitor. To see what all the system has, I recommend checking out Swann's website for exact specs.

The set up was very simple for anyone who is 5+ on a tech experience scale of 1-10. If you the kind of person who can get your VCR to stop blinking 12:00 (if you have one) and are able to hang drapes with a drill and screw driver, you should have the ability to set this system up.

The tools I used:
-Phillips Head Screwdriver to screw cameras to wall or ceiling and adjust camera angle
-Power drill to drill to drill pilot holes for camera mounts and holes for wires
- assorted drill bits
- Electrical tape to secure connections
- a straightened clothes hanger to help pull wires

The system is a snap to set up and took me only 10 hours or so to finish, from planning to programming. It took me so long mainly due to the fact that I was installing these cameras in a 150 year old building with countless renovations and alterations to work around. In new (post 1950) construction it should be a breeze. All the BNC cables twist and snap together.
