Excellent product!

 

Simple and easy to install. It does what I need it to do. For the price, it is affordable and reliable. Glad I got this

None so far

Consumer review by:

Junk

 

Waste of money!!!

None

Junk, Can not view over IP. Not a DVR as described. Customer Support is poor. Had the device for about a month now and still can not get it to work properly

OK for the Price

 

I bought this setup because the neighbor kid had been breaking into my house and also stealing my gas. To my dismay, the first day after installing the cameras I caught a 'trustworthy' neighbor stealing my lumber! The next day I caught him peering...

If cash is tight, this is not a bad starter. I could barely afford this system when I bought it, but after a rash of break-ins at my house I couldn't afford not to have it. Just having the cameras visible is a deterrant to burglars. The cameras that...

I purchased two of these units, one for home use and the other for work. One 8 channel and one 4 channel. Both units came with 500 gb WD hd's paired by Newegg. In both cases the unit stops recording at 250 gb, everytime. The only way to get them...

Good until it started rebooting constantl.

 

Fortunately, I monitor the video constantly and noticed when it started happening. It is unacceptable to have a consistent failure like this and the company is MIA. I will never buy a Kguard again, and recommended avoiding their units at all cost.

Easy setup for somebody technically proficient ; Worked well for 1.25 years

Suddenly started locking up and rebooting itself every other minute, just like other reviews have mentioned

Does the job

 

Pretty clear for a cheaper camera set up

Took a lot of figuring out on setting the thing up on the internet to view from other computers but finally figured it out

Consumer review by:

do not buy!

 

simple, cheap, easy(ish) to setup

remote is terrible, have to use the front buttons to do anything on it. Both DVRs that I purchased now automatically reboot after a minute or so. I have attempted contacting support, but have heard nothing back. So much for the 1 year warranty, let...

1st month running

 

Setup was actually pretty easy, but I already had quite a bit of network knowledge, and understanding of electronics in general.I have set up a DYNDNS.org account, that all works well also. At this time I would probably NOT refer anyone to buy this...

Works for the most part as it should. I have never used or setup a System like this before, it did take some time. Don't believe anyone that said they set it up in 20 minutes, thats just NOT possible. Anyway, it did setup fairly easily. I have used my...

I have not had any luck getting ANY help from Kguard Support, they just ignore my emails. I have been able to get email alerts to work, though problems with network settings in router made this difficult ; I personally had hoped for a better picture...

I have not had any luck getting ANY help from Kguard Support, they just ignore my emails. I have NOT been able to get email alerts to work. I have tried using my Comcast.net my Yahoo.com and a gmail account, all with NO luck sending email alerts. If...

Good product. Odd e-mail system.

 

For what I paid I would do it again without thinking twice. I bought it just to play around with at the house and it is fun.

Daytime quality is great. E-Mail notification is cool. Using another reviewer's recommendation for an Android client is fun for impressing your friends or checking your system when you get an e-mail alert

I set the DVR up with a gmail account. When I monitored the DVR with Wireshark, the outgoing notification was not to the gmail server, but to a server in China. So you may want to use an e-mail account strictly for the DVR and protect your main e-mail...

Great Deal

 

Firmware isn't great but the price is perfect!

Easy Setup, iPhone setup works like a charm slightly delayed. I put a 1tb 5.4k drive in it. i have 6 months of HQ videoand i havent used 1/4th of the drive space

Had some trouble getting the external webpage to work correctly. have to use IE8... doesn't work in chrome. to get the mouse to work you must have it unplugged when you boot the device
