This is the real deal

by Don on 2/12/2008

I own 3 of these, I use at home, my business and vacation home. Purchase high quality full size analog cameras and you will be very impressed with the quality. These are commercial grade and not some low end electronic junk. Make sure to record on a second hard drive, not the primary drive. I use the new Western Digital Caviar GP WD10EACS 1TB hard drive. I get about 4 months of storage before it starts overwriting the oldest recordings. Here is the best part, US Based, Clear English Speaking free tech support! Easy to set up for remote internet viewing of real time streaming video. You can even enable audio with an inexpensive add on card. Need I say more.

solid reliable professional product

I have sold and installed Avermedia video capture cards or systems for approx. 2 years, totaling some 40 installations, and for the money, they offer the best value on the market. Purchasing, installing, and testing DVR/video capture cards can be technically painful and costly, however, with the use of Avermedia DVR cards, the integration effort should be simple and straightforward, like adding another hard drive, network adapter, etc. The cards and the supporting DVR software are developed for professional installations and complete MS compatibility. Be sure to read hardware recommendations on the Avermedia site before purchasing or assembling a PC to support the Avermedia cards. If hardware recommendations are followed (nothing extraordinary, all recommended hardware is readily available from your typical PC components sources) this system is extremely stable and robust. Internet remote access tools are also reliable and the utility of this feature is only limited by the upload bandwidth of the DSL service (typically 384 kbps). As long as the DVR is not used for Internet browsing and is employed as a dedicated DVR, this system will never break.
