                Comments about Lorex LH118501C4WB Digital Wireless Security Camera System (500 GB):

                I purchased a garbage lorex product. I spent a good amount of money on my own security system, since I figured you get what you pay for. I heard Lorex was a good company so I went ahead and made the investment. After 9 months of having the product, the DVR started to fail, where it would restart itself every 30 seconds and was in a continuous loop. I called them and because it was within their 1 year warranty, they replaced it. Things are great. After 9 months of having the replacement, the device started to fail again, doing the SAME EXACT THING! At this point, I am thinking this is a flaw in the design of this device. I called Lorex once again, and they told me they would replace it without any issues. They told me they would email me the information. I get the email, and it tells me that I have to pay $200 dollars to replace the DVR because it is outside of their 1 year warranty. I see how their support team is, that they would rather deal with digital support, instead of being straight forward and telling customers they are going to have to pay while they already have them on the phone. I called back and I told them it was ridiculous, when there is clearly a flaw in this device and I shouldn't have to pay $200 for a design flaw. If it was a different problem, then I have no problem paying the money. But you can't expect a person to pay $200 dollars with the thought of it possibly failing again in another 9 months with the same problem. I have been transferred to "Joe Lee" a few times, who I am assuming is the manager. I have left several messages and I don't receive any call back. Looks like these people really do care about customer service. It's not like we are talking about a $30 dollar radio. I spent a good amount of money in this bad economy on their product, which they choose not to back up. And their support is terrible. I have worked my share of managerial jobs that require interactions with upset customers, but never once do I turn my back on them. They are the one's putting money in your pocket. I guess Lorex hired a manager who apparently doesn't understand that concept. I will NEVER purchase any product from Lorex. I had recommended them to a few of my clients for their businesses, but from here on out, I will never install these products for my clients again. I will make sure I spread the word about their products and support team.

                          We required this system for outdoor use. We contacted Lorex directly and discussed it's viability and were satisfied by their response. However, the wireless cameras are so weak that they could not get through one wall from 60 feet away. Forget about the 400 feet advertised...not a chance! The internet feature is not wireless, so has to be connected by cable. This it rediculous in today's world! The timeline graphics are also so outdated that they look like DOS! Service from lorex after the fact was non existent. Stay away!
