Follow up - still works


if you see one avilable second hand, pick it up and put in a new HDD it'll proably work. But as someone points out, the first time it formats it will go on forever if you let it, just unplug it and plug it back in the format will go fairly quickly.

After ~2 1/2 years of 24/7 operation the Barracuda HDD failed which is fine it outlasted it's warrenty by 2 minutes or so and is seperate from this system ;-) ... after replacing the drive the system is back up and running like a champ. 2 TB WD AV...

Great product, and I coupled it with a 2tb hard drive, it works fantastically.

Great, these four stock cameras were easy to hook up, the wires are easy to hide and they are easy to manually move, and the price was right on

In complete darkness, the night vision is a little sketchy

Great for the samll business


Great overall unit. the cameras show up really well and it is so nice to be able to view these systems over the WAN wherever I"m at.

Price was fantastic. Installation was very simple. Remote viewing very simple to set up as well

None so far

Great System


This is a great unit I am well Pleased. Everything is good quality. The DVR unit works and responds great so far.

Great System - Great packaging - Cameras are first class ; Easy hookup - Works perfect out of the box

The Hard Drive mounting inside was a problem ; The holes provided did not match any Hard Drive ; No hard drive mount included. Finally Duct Taped ; the Hard Drive down - it worked perfect

Works well


Love the system. Manual is pretty bad. Interface is pretty bad. I like the fact that I can get to the DVR from the app. Cam Viewer also works although you have to set it up as a different model. Instructions here-->...

This thing works pretty well. I installed a 2TB SATA hard drive inside it and haven't had any problems yet. The cameras are nice quality and pretty good at night. The cables were VERY long which was VERY nice

I was sore (as someone else previously reviewed) for two days after crawling around in my attic. I actually only mounted two of the four cameras last weekend. I have to do the other two now. These are the hard ones. Ugh

Update of my 9/23/2012 review


I fully expect the refund to be given upon it's arrival back to new egg. If you don't see another update all went well even though I am still concerned about the lifetime of these DVR's.

I still think it's a good deal but see my issues below. This is an update of my previous review left just over a month ago

Well the fact that it quit working after about 120 days of use is not comforting but I'm giving it another chance with the RMA/replacement ; I had the same thing happen to the DVR that N/A mentioned in their 10/30/2012 review. It just quit working. I...

Don't Buy


This is not an acceptable business practice. I'll get a DVR from someone else that I can return if there is a problem with the unit.

Purchased August 20,2012 installed September 4-9. Cameras work well, was able to access from smart phone and PC. System seemed very good for the price

After one month the DVR continued to reset every half hour. Could not access the system with the mouse, front panel or remote. Called Rosewill for the problem and they said I would have to purchase a whole new system then I could call them back for RMA...

Pretty decent DIY deal


I do some contract work for a local security firm setting a variety of different branded DVR's for their clients for offsite viewing. This one which is much cheaper than what that firm charges for one is on par with most of them. I have only seen a few...

Throw a HDD in this, run the wires, mount the cameras and you are all set. I have owned this for 3 months and have one camera just mounted in a tree. It has been rained on several times and once was beaten up by some pretty large hail and it still...

It would be nice to be able to view recorded video without the time stamp being visible during playback as an option as it can sometimes block the part of the screen you want to see. Not a big deal as usually you will not care about that area of the...

Great product for the $


After installing a hard drive, it will being formatting the drive when you plug in the power to the DVR. The first time I did that, it just said "Formatting Hard Drive," and continued to say that for 2 days! I called tech support and they weren't too...

Cameras have very good quality, night vision is pretty good too. DVR system has lots of great features. Compatible with Dynamics DNS, email alerts, motion sensing, and more. Cameras were very easy to install and have good mounts for numerous mounting...

Its not clearly obvious in the description, but this system DOES NOT include a hard drive - you will need to add your own. No instructions for installing your own SATA drive. To do so, remove the screws for the top cover of the case, use the included...
