Unacceptable Service

 

Received the item and just like another reviewer the cover just came right off. There were no screws holding it and no screws in the package. Also, in the manual it states to attach HD to shock absorbers, yet the customer service rep said those...

- Inexpensive

- No cooling fan - No screws - No rubber gaskets for HD to help vibration - Terrible customer service

A little late, but a decent DVR

 

An additional USB connection for a keyboard would be outstanding. A quicker processor would make the mouse movements less choppy. Ability to record via external USB connected storage would be a plus..Tech informed me that the external USB is for...

- Records security video with an HDD - Shows all cameras simutaneously - Very detailed and indepth menus - Has a mouse for menu work - Accepts upto 1Tb HDD

-Works well when it isn't burning up HDDs -Menu is a bit complicated -If you do not "Apply" settings each and every change you lose them -Mouse is slow, choppy and unresponsive -Menu changes are made more difficult by editing onsee and twosee with...

Works as expected

 

This is a perfect devise for the price. It offers much more that you would expect for this price. Web interface, client interface and mobile interface - all works.

Easy to install and configure. Web interface, iPhone app, Android app. You can look at the cameras from anywhere. All needed is in the box.

Cameras are not of a high quality. If needed purchase better cameras.

Zmodo DVR

 

Arrived quickly!

Unit did not come with the six screws to hold the cover on. Nor did it come wuth the screws or shock absorbers for the hard drive I was adding. If I had not needed it to replace a bad one I would have sent it back!

left button sticks

 

Good stuff. But agitating problem. 8.5/10 Would recommend

-awesome price -good enough for moderate gaming -the mouse isn't that small. Maybe your hand is too fat. -button placement

-my left button is sticking randomly and double clicks when I just do a single click. I dont even use that button much. Kinda makes me mad.

Good Unit

 

I've been running this for about two weeks now, and it works 100%. I had to disable the alarms, because those are annoying as you can get. I ended up putting a normal HDD inside this unit because of the extra cost of the " DVR rated HDD" was more than...

Remote view of cameras with free android apps, remote view on local network, password protection, simple design, remote control. Good video capture quality

No HDD for the purchase price is a negative in my opinion. No cooling fan for interior HDD, even though their appears to be a place for one, as well as a HDD FAN connector

Basic, but works well

 

I set this up with 2 infra-red cameras from ZModo and was able to get it up and running rather easily. It took 3 tries on a hard drive, as it seems to be finicky on the drives you use. iPhone apps work well with it. UPNP works well. However, I could...

Simple yet effective. Priced fantastically. Easy to use. Records CIF AND D1 (Yes, the high rez.)

Not for beginners. Video quality so so. Web interface flakey. Picky on hard drive used.
