Dvr Has 1 Tb Drive, Decent Customer Support, Dvr Hd Upgradable To 2tb, Able To Rec Up To 70 Day
Night Mode Sucks, Comes With Bare Minimum, Cheap Quality, Night Mode Doesnt Turn On, Plastic Cameras, Cameras Are Big, Overpriced For Value
The system was shipped out right away and we got it fast and the ordering process was smooth but during install we had (3) three camera's get stripped out threading because they are made of plastic and the mounts are made of metal. The included contents were unsatifactory because they came with the bare minimum installation materials. I ordered a SVAT 16 Channel system last year which cost me (at the time) $100.00 LESS than this system and we got (4) four extra 60' cables with it and a ton of connectors and extras, plus the cameras that came with the SVAT were metal cameras and standard sized. These Lorex camera's are really BIG and they are made from plastic and once you screw the mount onto it you can not remove it or else they NEVER go back on again right. The camera QUALITY is ALSO not good and you can really get a better camera quality from a cheap camera PHONE!
We NOW are going to have to purchase metal replacement camera's to replace ALL of the Lorex camera's that came with this system. We also had to cut and splice wires together just to make the most out of what came with the installation kit to extend the 150' of store distance from camera to DVR.
The DVR is nice and somewhat easy to use, it fast forwards at a whopping 30 or 50x speed but the only options are 5x, 15x, then either the 30 or 50x (I can't recall right now).
The DVR is small and easily mounts to the back of a LCD monitor and takes up little space which is nice. The remote control connects easily and does not HAVE to be pointed DIRECTLY at the receiver. The Web app and 'iProduct' apps are easy to setup and use and connect to.
Overall... the DVR is nice but the camera's aren't worth ANYTHING!
