Good for geeks.


Q-See also known as Digital Peripheral Solutions is a company - according to BBB - of 17 employees. Ordering this product from Costco was easy but it took a long time to ship. The DVR box was plain with no pictures or stickers describing what is...

Decent Camera System


This is the first security camera system I've ever purchased. After ordering it online, it took about 2 weeks for me to receive it. It took me about 2 days to get the cameras set up and the wiring run. For 600TVL cameras, the image is ok, but nothing...

Best DVR/Camera system yet

Small hard drive


The same model, with 4 camera, item 596936 has a 1 TB hard drive. This model comes with a 500 GB hard drive, which is comparatively a very small hard drive.

Good Deal


This is a good deal. The cameras are high quality. The remote internet viewing works well with Internet Explorer and Android. The DVR has lots of channels (16) and many cool features.

high quality cameras, 16 channel dvr, everything included for installation, remote internet viewing, good instructions on cd

noisy dvr, no hard copy user manual, no 100 feet cables, no audio recording cameras, must log-off before powering down dvr

Don't purchase this product!


If you are thinking of viewing your CCTV cameras remotely, don't count on Q-See to provide any assistance. Their service is virtually non-existent. They say they'll call you by tomorrow. Their service hours are from 8:30-5:00 PDT so they are available...

non remote set up is easy

non existent service, can't use remotely

16 camera 600 TVL


I received the package and check the camera quality today. I was curious and excited on 600 TVL but there is no difference between 520 TVL and 600TVL, I would say that these are exactly same but different shape. I have 420 TVL camera, both QC 520 TVL...
