Great when it works.
Great DVR when it works. Mine worked great for 3 years, then died a week after the warranty expired. To me it is not worth paying this kind of money it if it will not last past the warranty and you have to replace it ever 3 years. Security Camera King also does not repair these dvr's, so I have a nice paper weight. You would think a company might help you out when you have bought over 13 cameras and 2 drv's from them over the years, but all they said is sorry, you can buy a new one on our next sale. Not impressed.

We recently purchased the Security Camera King Tribrid recorder. It is a great way to merge three different systems together into one DVR and still maintain high resolution recording on the CVI and Network ends while using conventional analog cameras as well. We've loaded ours with internal hard disk drives for storage and have used darned near all the cable/wire hookups in the back of the unit. If there is any negative side to this recorder, I would say that it is the unbelievable bundle of cables and wires you can amass in the rear of the unit if you utilize it to it's fullest extent but I don't think Security Camera King can do much about that.
With all the processing power going on inside the DVR it is still not noisy. The cooling fans can be heard but other than that or an occasional hard drive engaging, it is pretty quiet. While operating the DVR itself is pretty easy and straight forward, the On Screen Display has a tendency to make things a little easier. However, keeping track of where you are going to put the cameras for each type (analog/CVI/IP) maybe a little challenging especially for someone new to this system performing a new install. We use not only just about all available video channels but full audio recording as well. The multiple display feature is a must for us and I would bet that many using this system would want more than one display as well.
So far so good. If anything should go wrong I will be back to add some comments, but for now, between the great customer service and the quality and performance of the DVR I'll give it five stars.

From the outside, this appears to look like any average full size Techvision standard DVR. However, on the inside this thin is buzzing with so much activity it really must be working hard. Regardless of the workload though, we have not experienced any dropped frames, no lost video or data, and no interference or disturbance in the quality of the recorded video, regardless whether it is analog, IP network, or HD-CVI. I like this full size version because our company has a tendency to request a lot of footage copies from me for what we do and this unit is large enough to hold an internal DVD burner yet still hold 6 large internal hard disk drives. There are multiple display options, remote access via your local network or the Internet, audio, alarms, and many other features that are very useful. If you have cameras that operate in different modes or all you need is analog coverage with a few camera for facial feature or individual identification, I think you'll find this DVR to work extremely well for you. If you read through some of the reviews, it's true what a lot of people say about the Security Camera King Technical Support Department. The crew is very knowledgeable and they want to help you with any issues you may have.

Excellent three-way DVR! I'm very impressed with the quality and performance of our new tribrid recorder. The videos are sharp with absolutely no noise or interference (that goes for all three types of cameras) and the DVR, even though it has all the processing power going on with the different types of camera signals, can still handle audio input/output as well as alarms. There are plenty of display options as well. I did have a bit of difficulty getting everything configured correctly on my own so I contacted Security Camera King and their technical support. I thought at this point things were going to get very dicey but these folks are like no other technical support that I ever dealt with. They were quick, very nice and not intimidating, and gave me the exact answers I needed. I'll give the three way recorder 5 stars.
