This thing would be great if it could do more than 4 3MP cameras at once. In order for this to display all my cameras I would have to knock the resolution down to 720. I have 16 cameras and only 4 show up on the display at any given time. I feel kind of robbed because these boxes were ridiculously expensive and pairing that with the camera licences for the surveillance station, I am out a ton of money. I have ordered a proper NVR that can stream 32 3MP cameras at once and doesn't require licensing just to record an image on a NAS I already paid for. I am extremely disappointed with this appliance.

Pros: Low Power Consumption
Cons: Price

I have two of these paired to a synology DS214+ server with 16 cameras. Each of them is connected to two displays. They are designed so that one display contains all of the controls and the other shows just the camera images. It’s an expensive alternative to a computer, but they are designed to run 24/7 with very little power consumption. One thing to watch is that your main display needs to be a real monitor (not a 1080p TV) or the controls will get chopped off. Not a big deal since you really don't even need the controls. For the second display you can use a TV. For exampling in the Master Bedroom I have a large TV mounted on the wall as a second display. It is great to be able to flip it on and see all around the outside of the house.

Not sure what the other reviewer was complaining about as to hard to set up for internet access, etc. The entire configuration is done on your Synology NAS in Surveillance Station. You can even set up your display configurations (simple grid, big image in the center, cycling through cameras, etc) and push it out to the stations. From the Internet you connect to the Surveillance Station on your Synology server. This device is to display the cameras on the local premises, nothing more, so doesn’t even need to be plugged in to see your cameras from the internet and there really isn't anything to configure on it. Just plug it in, point your Surveillance Station to it and it works.

This will allow you to view and control your cameras that are controlled by Surveillance Station sans PC. My only gripe was that it was advertised as dual hdmi display. Only problem is this allows you to only mirror what is displayed on the screens. For example if you want to display 2 sets of 4 different cameras on two different displays you cannot do this. You can only see the same 4 mirrored on the two displays. Sort of defeats the purpose of having two screens in order to see more cameras. Synology should make this fact more clear in product literature.
