Recommendable – 4-Channel Surveillence Video Monitoring Capture and Recorder PCI Card with Software (H.264/MPEG4) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Reasonable price and high framerate.
On Linux this card shows as four different v4l-devices, not as one device with 4 channels. So you can really get 4x25fps.
Cons:
Can't say any. The product is just as expected. The manual paper was only in Chinese, but it's not really important with this kind of devices.
Other:
I wanted to reduce potential heating, so i bought some small heat sinks for the IC's at the same time. (SKU.35816)
Bottomline:
See discussion about configuring with Linux.
The card has 4x Trident SAA7134HL which are supported by kernel.
