This 8 channel 960H security DVR has been equipped with completely new features. Innovative QR-Code scan connectivity allows you to quickly and easily connect to your smartphone, tablet, or PC. If Coupled with 700TVL high-resolution cameras, this DVR will produce the clearest Analog surveillance image possible for exceptional viewing on wide-screen monitors or TV screens, all while maintaining image integrity. 960H is a new standard for security DVRs that provides high resolution images at an image size of 960 pixels horizontal and 480 pixels vertical.
I purchased this DVR as a replacement of my previous DVR. The item arrived quickly and I like it compacted size. It was easy to open the DVR and install the hard drive. All mounting screws came with the DVR. Also, very easy to format the HD and set up this DVR. My surprise was, after disconnecting the old DVR and connecting this one, I connected all the cameras and to my surprise I had a wider view on all cameras. With this DVR, each camera view is about 15 to 20% wider view and about 5% increased view area vertically. I did not expect this to happen but I’m glad it did. The negatives are the limited amount of options for the screen. I only have 6 cameras connected and it will be nice to be able to customize the screen for a 2 by 3 viewing. This system does not have this option so I have 3 blank spots on the bottom of my monitor. Waste of space in my opinion. Another negative is setting up email notifications in case of motion detection does not work.
I had the camera's already set up from a security unit I bought from Harbor Freight. The set up instructions were so difficult on it I never got to view my stuff online. SO..... I decided just to bite the bullet and buy another unit that would work with my cameras. I bought this and installed a 1TB hard drive. It was easy to set up to see online (my whole reason for buying another unit) So that was a big plus. Just point my phone camera at the QR codes and it set itself up using my internet. So I can now see my home cameras anywhere I go. The only reason I don't have 5 stars is that the instructions were a bit hard to decipher for set up. ALSO..... the app you use to access it is not the greatest. You can see things real time in the app, but you can't "rewind" "slo mo" "fast forward" using the app. You can do that on the actual unit at home but not via the application. If they update the app for those functions I would give it a 5 star.
The DVD works great has LAN connection and also hdd was easy to install
