8 Channel Ultimate Mini Series D1 Realtime Security DVR
  Review by Louis Mobley on Apr 07, 2014
I ordered my DVR from Security Camera King using this on-line catalog. I placed my order, paid for it with my credit card, and received my Mini Ultimate in three days. I never expected to see it get here that quick, I figured it would probably take about 2 weeks. The shipping package was a little dinged up (obviously from transit) but the DVR was perfect and unharmed inside. All I really had to do when I got it was plug it in and screw in the cables. Granted there is an elaborate On Screen Display with some very useful additional electronic features, but you don't have to use them to get started, just plug it in and go. My recorder seems to work perfectly; I have no problems with recordings as they are clear, colorful, and detailed. The recorder isn't overly noisy or does it operate very warm. The performance at this time is great. I'll give it an initial rating of four stars. as long as it continues to work well throughout its warranty period I'll try to remember and come back and upgrade my rating to 5 stars as long as there are no issues.

Great choice for the Home or Small Business

The unit worked right out of the box, with no initial input. Programming to customize it for
my own use also went smoothly and was fully functional in under an hour using the quick start
instructions. The picture quality in D1 30fps was exactly as expected. The 1 Tb drive that was installed with
the unit was noisier then other units that I've seen, but not intolerable: about the level of a cooling fan.

8 Channel Ultimate Mini Series D1 Realtime Security DVR
  Review by Rex Barstow on Jan 18, 2014
I know why Security Camera King calls this their "Mini" series Ultimate DVR but when it comes to talking about it's performance and ability, I would advise that you focus on the word "Ultimate." I'm not exactly sure how much on board memory it has ( I assume it must have some) but it apparently has been bench tested along with the processor to yield optimum results before they manufactured these units for recording the video in excellent color (and black and white ) quality. Eight channels at D! (704 x 480 pixels) resolution each at 30 frames per second is a lot of digital work but the DVR handles it, and many additional tasks with ease. I have found no problem with the reduced case size yielding a lesser number of maximum internal hard disk drives for storage and I don't miss the internal DVD burner at all. I can see where this may not be suitable for some people and especially for enterprise use because it has less features than the full size unit but the price reflects that too. It controls our PTZ very well (we use the USB mouse and the 3d intelligent positioning method -- no joystick controller) and we do use both the HDMI and VGA video monitor outputs. We also use the motion activated recording function and the simultaneous remote user function. I'm not sure how it does it either, but it is able to record, play, and allow remote users to interact with it all at once. I also like the video search features that the DVR has. It makes looking for a particular segment of footage much easier and less time consuming.

8 Channel Ultimate Mini Series D1 Realtime Security DVR
  Review by Jan Stoddard on Nov 29, 2013
We purchased this DVR for use in our home because we felt the price was right and we have heard some good things about Security Camera King equipment. I had a much older system and the DVR eventually when kaput (somewhow I think it overheated) so I tried hooking my old cameras up to this DVR. To my surprise they worked. In addition I purchased two new 700TVL cameras from Security Camera King and connected them. Holy cow! What a difference. I actually logged back on today to order more of those cameras. Watching the old cameras compared to the new Security Camera King 700TVL's is like going without my glasses. There truly is that much difference. As for the DVR, it works great. It is very quiet, very efficient and seems very powerful. I makes excellent quality D1 resolution video recordings. The remote access feature via the Internet is awsome and even though this is a "Mini" we have plenty internal hard disk drive storage space. The only thing that could probably use some improvement is the instructions. They are vague and you can tell they are translated into English (and not by an English major). However, in all fairness, I will admit that if you take the time to dig around in Security Camera King's "Learning Center" section you'll moe than likely find the help you'll need. If not, their Technical Support Department is one of the best. Their guys speak English (seriously, that's a surprise these days) and they all have experience with the units and installations so they know exactly what needs to be done to address your situation.

Instructions could be a little more defined for the non techies
Review by mvfc mvfc on Oct 21, 2013
System is easy to install size and weight are very nice. A better explaination of the front controls would be nice. It took two chat sessions, a phone call and internet research for info (that I finally found stached away in a discussion group on your own web site) to setup the net connection. there are to many parameters for a simple connection and they will confuss you because everyone uses different names for them. You may consider enclosing better networking instructions.

I've owned a few software based DVR systems (both Windows and Linux versions) and without exception they were all "tinker toys". I was always "tweaking" the software to fix issues. So, I finally decided convert to a hardware based DVR solution. This was not a spur of the moment decision. I spent a lot of time reviewing various DVR's and I kept coming back to the 8 Channel Ultimate Mini DVR. It has all the features I really need at a great price point.

Also, the tech support is totally awesome!

Finding a good 8 channel security DVR for under $500.00 has been a real challenge until I purchased the 8 Channel Ultimate Mini Series DVR. At last a DVR that does everything that they claim it will do and does it well. This DVR with the great customer service at Security Camera King is absolutely is the best.

Review by ken jackson on Sep 08, 2013
Happy with the people on the phone. Good
The DVR produces better picture quality then the last 3 units. Good
The on screen picture/camera layout and control are well thought out. Good
The size and quietness are correct. Good
The search function is OK not great but for me.. Ok.
The soft ware has silly little glitches. Annoying yes, deal breaker?... No
The instruction CD did not open, Bad
I would add a speed knob...you know to blaze through searches and freeze instantly when you find the event,
also I would clean up the large frame problem. Ie search 8 screens at once, and then find the event, be able to expand that screen in that time frame with a simple click. kinda dumb
