    Hikvision DS-7608NI-I2/8P reviews

    DS-7608NI-I2/8P P Series 8-Channel 12MP NVR with No HDD Storage is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great NVR. Worth buying here instead of Chinese version As Chinese products go, this NVR is near the top in terms of build quality, frequency of updates, technical support, and online forums. I ran into several challenges while installing mine, but I was able to find answers online for everything I encountered except one. I had several requirements for an NVR: 1. Power Over Ethernet (POE) - DONE! 2. Let me install my own HDDs - DONE! 3. Support the cheap ONVIF cameras found on Chinese web sites - DONE! 4. Let me view my cameras and playback recordings on mobile devices - DONE! 5. Let me view my cameras and playback recordings in a web browser - DONE! 6. Support 24/7 recording of at least 3 cameras at full 1080p - DONE! Overall this is a very good product which meets my needs perfectly. I did really struggle with viewing output from HDMI vs. RGB/VGA, but this was my TV's fault. Here's what happened: I changed the NVR's HDMI output resolution to 4k/60Hz and the picture on the TV went blank. I waited for the NVR to reset the picture to the previous setting, but the picture never came back so I was stuck. I tried an old monitor with VGA input so I hooked that up and was able to see the output, but the mouse wasn't showing up and the keyboard didn't have any effect. After A LOT of swapping outputs, rebooting, and trying various settings, I gave up. The next morning I came downstairs and turned on the TV and the HDMI was working fine. So what did I learn? 1. If you change resolution and lose the HDMI, cycle the TV power. 2. The NVR lets you choose which display includes the mouse/keyboard - this sucks! The control should just work on both outputs. 3. The NVR lets you configure the VGA/HDMI outputs differently, but the UI for this is awful. 4. The password and user management is unnecessarily complex and needs some love. 5. The NVR shows my empty camera slots in a lot of places. There should be 1 place for this (Add Cameras). All other places should hide empty camera slots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this to replace my NAS so I could record 24/7 on a of my cameras with out purchasing additional licenses and taxing my NAS hardware to the point of not functioning. So far it has performed wonderfully. The first 24 hrs was a little underwhelming and I was worried I would regret the purchase, but once I got everything operating how I wanted it and got used to the interface and remote interface it had lived up to my expectations. Highly recommend this unit for hikvision cameras AND 3rd party cameras. Works great with wifi connected cams as well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good nvr but has some connectivity issues... I installed a 6 TB seagate surveillance drive for $200 and seems to be recording well. �The issue I see is that Hik-Connect live view is jumpy on HD. �The nvr is running on a cat 6 Ethernet wire on a 1 gigabit internet connection so I am somewhat perplexed as to the hit or miss connection through Hik-Connect on an iPad and a Samsung phone. �The nvr firmware was upgraded to latest as �was the 8 mp Hikvision turret camera. �Will update once the system is fully tuned in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, better than expected Great customer service from B & H's Surveillence Dept, very knowledgeable guys. This product surpassed my expectations, and the H.265+ compression technology is phenomenal. A bit cumbersome to set up since it's more of a professional line, but it's not rocket science.
