Swann DVR-4 2600 4-Channel DVR & Camera Kit Review: Supereasy Setup, Limited Range


The $500 price tag is definitely attractive, but you'll need more than one system to cover an area greater than the 60-foot radius of the DVR.If money and time are in short supply, and you don't mind compromising on video quality for your surveillance...

Entirely self-contained--no host PC required ; Cameras can be deployed indoors or out ; Dead-simple to install and set up

Coverage limited by 60-foot cables ; Analog cameras limited to resolution of 640 by 480 ; Cannot expand beyond four cameras

This video surveillance system delivers a terrific price/performance ratio, but it limits your coverage to a 60-foot radius from the DVR.

Swann offers multi-channel video surveillance on a shoestring, but performance isn't wonderful

Insufficient Documentation


Don't purchase unless you can use supplied cable. I had my house prewired with cable for Camera Power and Video (RG59). Documentation does not cover how to use cable other than what was supplied. Also, it took more than 10 days to get a response to a...
