      Comments about Bosch 8-Channel Digital Video Recorder (500 GB):

      Due to a defect with my previous recorder (Bosh DVR4C) and upcoming plans to extend I had to switch to this new recorder.

      + Silent
      + Easy setup
      + Trough web interface easily accessible from anywhere

      - I still need to discover any downside of this product
