16 Channel Elite Mini Economy Series H.264
  Review by Shearer, Doug (Maryland USA) on Oct 01, 2014
This is an extremely inexpensive way out for a D1 16 camera recorder if you don’t mind the 7 frame per second rate and it is still good for a 30 fps CIF. I think most people who use or order a security camera system know going in whether they will use CIF or D1 and how smooth they would like the movement to be recorded and played back so I don’t find that to be an issue at all. In addition, I have to concur that Security Camera King provides excellent customer service, or at least they have to me.

  Review by Bailey Douglas on Sep 01, 2014
This is a bargain buy for the cost and the features. It's funny how security cameras keep getting bigger and bigger in resolution and display options, yet so many people are satisfied to watch movies and other videos on the go on their smartphones, which, when you think about it, doesn't give you much more display area than CIF. That being said, the CIF resolution is fine for me, especially with the new 800TVL cameras and I like the realism of the 30 frames per second capture rate. The On Screen Display menu system makes configuring the DVR and cameras much easier that the old days and the internal processor is set up to give you a heck of lot more features too. I have had no problems with my unit after owning it for a little over 4 months now. Should I need to purchase anymore equipment, I'll turn to Security Camera King first.

This is a decently cheap way out of a 16 channel DVR. It allows you to record 16 channels simultaneously at 30 frames per second but only at CIF resolution (which I think is almost becoming obsolete.) More importantly, it will allow you to bump the resolution up to D1, a much more formidable format, but with a sacrifice to recording speed to 7 frames per second per channel. Still, I can see where this recorder provides a nice economic alternative.

Review by Chris Cooksey on Jun 16, 2014
I was looking for a short term substitute for my current surveillance system until I could budget in the NVR system. I was pleasantly surprised at the clarity of the video feed and all of the options that this model offered. Still learning some of its many functions! For an inexpensive system, this would be a great option.

I think this DVR for the price versus quality is probably one of the best deals in the CCTV business. If you don't need a lot of extra features like alarms, sound, etc. and your looking for a good multi-channel DVR I'd go with this hands down. In fact residential or commercial if you are considering the equivalent 8 channel model, you might as well go with this one for the price and if you should ever decide to expand your system further you'll be covered. Video recording quality is very good for CIF and although at a lower frame rate, the D1 resolution is very good too.

I bought an 8 channel system from these folks almost 5 years ago. The hard drive went out and I tried a replacement Hard Drive and it still didn't work. The support staff was great as they answered question and comments with emails going back and forth for several days. Finally, I decided to bite the bullett and buy a new 16 channel DVR I got the package the next day and hooked it up. I had some issues resulting from my ignorance about internet connections, networking and "port forwarding". I didn't even know what a port was. Again, the support staff called me on a SATURDAY and we are up and running.

The product is great which is proven by 5 years of 24x7 recording, The support is even better.

  Review by Wiegle, Arthur (West Virginia USA) on Feb 26, 2014
This DVR does a good job. I own a small casino cafe that can only have a maximum of five video poker/slot/keno machines (regulated by the state). I use the DVR at a D1 setting at 7 frames per second and it works great. No one is going to move that quick (I don't believe) that the 7 fps won't be able to clearly capture them, especially since the entrance door is controlled by a buzzer and electronic entry. The 16 channels allow me to have enough cameras for all the places that I need them without costing me an arm and a leg. I have cameras at the machines, two of them at the ATM, two at the counter, one at the front door, two for our small parking lot and entrance and one that covers the utility room/kitchen. All work fine and do an outstanding job. Ironically enough, I'm not worried about protection as much when we are closed as when we are open. The machines are emptied every night before closing and everything is insured so after hours isn't as much an unstable time as during operating hours. The mini still has plenty of storage room to run (record) all day during operating hours for all the cameras. In addition, I feel like I have more control of my business because I can remotely assess the unit when I am away. I installed the system myself to save on overhead (I'm just starting out my business and my budget is very limited) and it was fairly easy to do. I had a couple questions about installation and using the DVR so I contacted Security Camera King and was connected to one of their technical support agents. Excellent service and knowledge and they were very willing to help.

Bought this for a client. I've purchased multiple variants of the Elite mini and choose to get a 16 channel this time around as he wanted to have the option of placing cameras inside his house at a later date. The install and set up are straight forward and easy. Took about 15 minutes to have the dvr up running and connected to the clients smart phone and tablet. Overall its a quality dvr as all the previous ones have been. If you are looking to record and have no need for alarm in/out then this is the route to go. Price is good for a home setup and the difference you pay verse a in box type of system is well worth the Investment.

  Review by Willis, Dan (North Carolina USA) on Jan 20, 2014
I'm not sure if I can say much more than what already has been said, but then again I suppose that if I add to it, it will at least reinforce the major points. First off, let's talk about the price. I couldn't believe I could find a standalone unit that had a 16 channel capacity at this price. I have seen units that are much cheaper, don't get me wrong, but they weren't standalones, they were usually those PCI cards that you have to add to an existing computer (which I'm sure uses at least some of the computer's resources). Also don't forget this unit goes up to D1 at 7 frames per second and the video recording is clear and accurate. I use two of the video outputs and have two main monitor displays using the HDMI and VGA connections (and they work great). At the core of the DVR's configuration settings is the On Screen Display (OSD) menu. The OSD is set up somewhat like a typical Windows Explorer file page of sorts with folders, directories and pages. To configure the DVR, all you have to do is go to the proper page and make the selections that you need. Using the OSD is easy; learning where everything is situated and what you need to do to get the results you expect may take a little time, but by far it isn't difficult. It beats the heck out of pushing combinations of buttons like your entering a high security safe, and Security Camera King includes a free USB mouse and an infrared remote control with the DVR. The search and find features are also great, and time saving for me. I like the ability to get to the footage I want to review without having to sit through a half hour of reviewing until I find it. The remote access option using the Internet is just grand. You can use a computer or a tablet or smartphone to access the system and once again Security Camera King comes through with customer oriented service by providing the download and use of the software and apps for free. Finally, last but not least, they have a very good service or support department that is more than willing to help you through any issues you may have with your unit. You just can't beat it.
