Recent reviews:

1st the pros: Support for 3 hdd, up to 4tb each I believe. Full 960H recording at 30fps, this is better than D1 and HD1 I learned. I now have only one 960h camera and it works much better with this unit. The units interface is easy to use. Lots of ports for all kinds of things as well as two front ports for external USB drives for backup. All of this should have given it a full 5 stars. But:The con: Zviewer for the PC is buggy and slow. As an example I can not see all my cameras on one screen although I can. No choice for multi channel playback that I can find. I have used it on a Win 7 laptop also as a VM in linux (really wish someone may come out with a really good linux app, however I digress) Playback in software is only up to 4x as far as I can tell but 16x on the unit itself. What Zmodo has here is a great part of hardware that should be 5 stars (or higher) but the software really hurts it. It is a shame too because after lots of searching and research this unit has the most features and alternatives for the money. It is top notch. Make some better software guys .

I bought this unit to replace an 8 Channel Zmoto, I had a 120 GB HD I put in it and it was low recording quality, or medium quality at 352/250 something. Also it was a low frame rate recording so playback was jerky. So recently when I had a black male driving a BMW steal some stuff off my front porch I have decided to upgrade. I was now impressed how great the picture quality is, playback is gorgeous. The 2 Terabyte HD can record high quality for over 3 weeks 24/7It was some a learning curve figuring out how to view recorded videos & save segments to my thumb drive, however it was really easy to make a folder on my desktop and move the surveillance videos into it. I am still learning. I only have 8 cameras and some aren’t High Def quality so I have to do some serious upgrading. The unit has functioned perfectly with no issues and I am impressed and wud purchase again. I like the remote control and the HDMI and VGA outputs. I like having my property protected with video surveillance, I have motion recording buzzers and they function well when the mail is provided and guests arrive. Recently the biggest crime I have recorded is the neighbor lady that walks & lets her dogs poop on my lawn. , But I am prepared for something more serious. I live in a good area but it is to get over run with homeless meth addicts, looking at the footage I see them walking and riding bikes up and down my street all night and day. Scary times. I included photos of the thief that grabbed stuff off my porch, however these photos are with my last unit.

Zmodo makes great equipment. We had an 8-channel Zmodo security DVR up till 2013. We replaced it with a non-Zmodo 16-channel unit because I wanted high-resolution/high-framerate recording. But, it did not have the pre-motion record which I was used to with Zmodo. That is where it generally has a running recording buffer so when it does sense motion, it really records video some seconds before the motion was sensed over the motion-activated video itself. When I learned about this new unit from Zmodo, I ordered it to replace the klunky 16-channel unit we now have. This new Zmodo 16-channel unit is high quality. The hard-drives installed easily with the screws they provided (no special mounting rails obliged. ) It was easy to setup. Note that when you turn it on, it does take a while to boot up. The QRC scan code and the smartphone app worked great for local network looking at, however beware, it does not work outside over the cellphone network – well, not now. You still have to mess with port-forwarding and firewall stuff on your local network. As some other reviewers have said, the video looks to be sharper. I have -no- idea how that’s possible, however I noticed the same thing on two of my cameras. I know, I know, it is not possible.. But that is what I saw. Possibly it uses higher quality output hardware to the monitor? Now for the small issue. As with all 16-channel units, this one has a cooling fan built into it. The cooling fan on this unit is quite deafening. Caused by how we ran our wires, we only have some places to mount it and, unfortunately, they’re inside earshot of the kitchen and living spaces. The fan on this is louder than our dishwasher.
