It supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels for live viewing and 720 x 480 pixels (D1) for recording. Pentaplex operation enables you to view, record, playback, and backup footage, and remotely control the system simultaneously. The DVR ships with an integral 24/7, 100% duty cycle robust 1TB hard drive, which enhances reliability and ensures that you don't miss recording a moment of the surveillance footage. Data backup and archival is made easy with the built-in USB port.

When you are away, you can conveniently view live or recorded footage on your smartphone or tablet, or on any PC or Mac computer with Internet Explorer or Safari browsers.

                The picture quality is great,the initial setup is pretty easy,I consider myself as being tech savvy,so taught I would have been able to do the networking myself,but that was a bit tricky,so had to employ the services of my tech guy to have that done,but overall was satisfied with my purchase,have already suggested this same product to a friend,who intend to purchase one instead of another brand he was looking at.

                Comments about Lorex ECO BlackBox 8-Channel Security System (8 Cameras, 1TB HDD):

                Just finished the install of this system, and although I've used the cameras before the ECO DVR was new to me. I ordered it because the feature list seemed to match the higher end units I'd been putting in and being the fist install, I figured I could continue using ECO line DVR's for this client. So they could use one piece of software for all of they're systems. Not sure why Lorex uses so many different applications to interface with the different models but I've only installed Edge2's & an Edge+ (which used the same software sets) and an ECO (which uses completely different software sets ?) and I've seen a few more app's at the iTunes store that I haven't needed yet ?!? The pc software seems better than the Edge line's but the phone app, not so much. I'm still getting used to it but I was surprised at how much I got for my money on this model.
