              This is an update to my earlier review, which was written shortly after I installed the unit. After getting all 8 cameras up and running, in late march, I had another camera go bad (about half of the LEDs went out). Called customer service, and they agreed to send me another camera. The camera came with no further contact from Swann. No tracking number - nothing. Very poor IMHO. Luckly I am signed up for UPS delivery alerts, so I had 24 hr notice that it was due. Today (5/18/13) I discovered ANOTHER camera has gone belly up. Near as I can determine, it has been faulty for about 3 weeks. Will call tomorrow to have them send another replacement. That will probably take another 2 weeks at least to arrive. I'm going to ask them to send me 2 so that I will have a spare on hand. I can imagine how far that will go unless I agree to pay for the extra camera. I don't know when the warrantee on the cameras expires, but you can be sure that when it does, I will be buying replacements from someone other than Swann.

                  The cameras have very clear quality, even on the playback. The dvr system itself isn't the easiest to set up but once you get it rolling, its great. If you try to stream the video via internet, there is a delay and its a little bit of a lag depending on the setting you have the picture resolution at. I wish the cameras cables were longer than 60 ft BC they came up short in some areas where I'd like to put them and I haven't priced the individual cables yet. All in all, worth the extra penny

                          I installed this unit about a week ago, and so far have had about 1 day of acceptable operation out of it. I suspect that the two 2-amp power supplies that were supplied with the unit are not enough to power the cameras. I also suspect that at least one of the cameras is bad, but I will have to wait for the two 5-amp power supplies that I asked for last week arrive. Tried to get in touch today (Sun PM) with tech support, but all I got was a busy signal. I'll try again tomorrow, and see what happens. also the software that allows you to connect to the DVR from your computer is lousy. It took me 2 hours to figure out that in order to log into the unit, you have to enter the IP address in the blank labeled "Host". Ridiculous! If things don't improve soon, I will be contacting B&H for an RMA, because I am tired of fooling around with substandard equipment.
