-Very inexpensive
-Comes with all you need to get started (4 cameras, you can add up to another 4)
-flexibly programmable for each channel: Framerate, motion alarms, privacy areas, schedules,more...
-Can be accessed on your local network or via internet if you have the network chops to config that.
-The DVR is the latest relase from the manufacturer, as of 2/2012
-Support is great, was willing to talk me through a few setup questions and workaround one bug I found in their firmware (see below)

-Wires seem to be lacking a bit in shielding, they pick up a little intereference when run at full length through attic where other A/C wires are.
-Included cameras are not the sharpest image. Considering they are practically thrown in for free...
-Total supported framerate a bit on the low side, buy forgiveable at the current price point.
-Shipping from the manufacturer took a month. I noticed that after I put the order in, so shame on me, I'm spoiled.

For reference, I paid One Hundred and Thirty dollars in January '12. If you're handy enough to install your own hard drive, this might be one to get. Recommend a 500gb at least. Manufacturer told me not to go all the way to 2TB, they've run into problems with stability with that big a drive. Don't forget to make it an AV rated hard drive. I used a Western Digital Green Power 500gb, which worked fine!

Also, ran into one problem: you must use IE to view the box over the network. And, IE 9 has a glitch with setting up alarm areas per each channel. IE 8 works fine, or just go to the console to set it up there. Support is now aware of the problem.

So now its set up and running... I already used it to identify who masking-taped a flyer to the front of my house, just for fun.

I installed camera systems for over 25 years in banks, saving and loans, etc. Both in the U.S. and for the Mexican government. Reading some of the reviews made me a bit nervous on this system, but I ordered it anyway. Here's the deal. For this price you are getting three of the cameras for free. Someone said there were no screws included for the sun shade on the cameras. That is not a screw hole. It is there in case you want to mount the camera UNDER something. That way the swivel mount can screw into the top. The iris shade is on a well designed pressure slide. It will not move by itself. Someone else said the colors are off. Maybe they had some adjustment issues. I installed mine and the colors are pretty much true to life, at least in my application. If you are new to this, first do what they tell you to do, set it all up and TEST it BEFORE you run all the cables! Second, mark with tape the end of the cable that goes into the dvr, or the camera if you want. DO NOT run the cables and then discover you ran them backwards! I dropped a 2T HD in and of course it has to format. Someone complained it wanted to format the drive. It takes about two minutes and you are ready to record. A sweet little system for this price is hard to find. A huge bonus is you can always add four more cameras later if you want.

The DVR is not of the best quality and mine broke after about 6 month. The hold time for customer service representative is very long and when you get them they are not paying attention to what you are saying. The company is not cognizant of customers time. I would rather pay a bit more and get better quality product from a company that provides better customer service. T

I gave two stars because this is truly a miracle come true. However the miracle lies in how far the Chinese mfg are willing to go in the name of cost saving. For example, in order to save cost they skip screw to fasten the little "hood" that goes over the camera.

Just to be fair, DVR does work, and so does the cameras. Do they work well, no. One of the camera IR emitter promptly burn out half of its LEDs after only 3 hours of on time. Now, let's go over a few things.

- Camera resolution. It's so bad that you won't be able to see facial feature of a person standing 15 feet away. So, for the purpose of security camera to ID the bad guy, this camera will most certainly fail the task.
- Camera color. Brown looks purple. Green looks gray. But, it is able to tell colors apart. Since I only spend $120 for the whole set, I think I can live with it.
- DVR resolution and frame rate. Grossly over estimated on Zmodo's web site. 240fps in CIF mode. with 60fps in D1 mode. Keep in mind this frame rate is share by all channels. But when I tried to set 30FPS for channel one and two, the software knock me back to 18fps max. What gives?!?!

For comparison, I also own Foscam FI8918W IP cam. Although both cameras have similar spec. This unit makes the Foscam FI8918W unit look like HD cam.

All in all, this set is good enough if you just want to know if some is snooping around house, or check to see if UPS/Fedex left package at your front door. For true security camera usage, the resolution of the camera and usable frame rate will need to be much better.

Horrible system. Broken right out of the box. Customer service can't keep story straight and doesn't seem to want to work with customers.
