HDD security recorder – 4-Channel H.264 Surveillance CCTV Digital Video Recorder/DVR with LAN + 2 USB Hosts Reviews

posted by BScott on 03/31/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Compact and works right off the bat. I installed a 3.5 inch/ 640gb HHD and it worked from the first instance. You get a remote with it but it will also work with a USB mouse. This saves a lot of time.
Cons:
I did install a cooling fan on top of the HHD and cut a ventilation hole in the top of the case. It did get slightly warm without it. There is also room to fit a 40 mm fan in the back of the case as shown in one of the pictures.... This is NOT standard
Other:
The program works fine and was fairly intuitive. The manual is harder to read than just winging it. It took me a while to find the default password in the manual to access the system (88888888)
Bottomline:
Not as complicated as I expected when I looked in the booklet. still need to try out some of the other features
