Interface is OK but not the best
Review by Francis Hertel on Aug 26, 2017
Overall this unit performs well.

The visual interface in not very configurable and has a bothersome side bar listing that uses quite a bit of the viewing screen, that could be used for larger views of the cameras.

The internet configuration is different than what most other DVRs use. Their terminology causes some confusion as to what to fill in as settings for the internet.

IE There is an entry for "SERVER" Port.
This is the first DVR that I've seen that uses that 'Name" and since I was replacing a failed DVR and wanted to use it's "Router" Port Settings, I found no entry on the older DVRs that was listed as "Server Port", so that confused the Internet Access Setup with this DVR.

Further, the drop down menu choices are, in some cases, very hard to read and some choices are very difficult to find.

Such was the case when I was looking for the selection to use "CVI" cameras.
At first power up the cameras were showing as Black and White pictures--the camera choice was set for "AUTO", but the "AUTO" setting wasn't able to detect that I was using "CVI" Cameras.

Once I was able to find that there was a drop down for "CVI Cameras. from the menu, I finally restored the "Color" to the displayed cameras.

Compared to the other DVR's, of past usage, this DVR leaves me wanting one of the other (older) DVRs that I used in the past.

This unit will work for you if you don't have another DVR that you were comfortable using, in the past.

Maybe it is just me, but because of my past experiences with other DVR's, this one took more time for me to ferret out the setup selections, and get it working somewhat close to what I was used to.

This DVR was installed at a School. The School Staff is not liking it's screen layout (AKA) the larger than needed side bar for camera selection, and some other "User" things that they will need to get accustomed to.

SUMMARY: It does work! It just works and looks differently that other (older) DVRs of the past. The faint drop down selections from some menu choices will be difficult to see, due to the way the setup interface is graphically displayed. This unit does not use a hand Held Remote--all setup is done with a "Mouse". It will work with a Wireless "Mouse" or the supplied "Wired Mouse".

8 Channel Sibell Recorder Mini 1U - CVI / TVI / AHD / 960H / IP
  Review by Doug Thomas (Tennessee USA) on Jun 20, 2017
I ordered this from SCK to replace an older Analog DVR that I purchased 2 years ago, The install was very easy because the cables were already installed and it was a plug and play. The New DVR automatically recognized each new camera i added. The new Sibell remote APP automatically saw the cameras after I scanned the Barcode on the DVR and the Setup Barcode for remote viewing.

My only disappointment was not having the option of setting the Camera"s brightness, hue, contrast, and sharpness on a day/night basis. Some of my older cameras required adjustments to get better recordings at Night. This mini DVR does not have that level of adjustment.

I would recommend this device to anyone updating an older system to CVI, TVI, or better quality cameras. The system is truly automatic.

8 Channel Sibell Recorder Mini 1U - CVI / TVI / AHD / 960H / IP
Review by Doug Thomas on Jun 20, 2017
I bought this to replace my 2 yr old analog recorder I ordered from SCK as i did my last purchase. The ordering process was smooth and prompt. Replacing my old reorder was really easy as the new Sibell was trulls automatic. As soon asa I replaced the older analog camera the dir immediately recognized the new camera and adjusted the configuration as required.

My only disappointment is the new DVR does not provide me with a time of Day camera setting adjustment. The dvr has one setting for brightness, contrast, hue, and sharpness. Some of my older cameras required different setting to enhance the night time b/w recording.

I probably should have bought the larger DVR to get this feature my old DVR had.

Since my original DVRand my house Modem had already been opened to the for emote viewing the new DVR was simple to use the Mobile App to see my cameras remotely.I am concerned about my Mac being able to have the same ease of configuration once I relocate it to my winter house. The mac does not have a barcode reader to set it up. I will have to connect to my House IP address to access it.

I would recommend this device to anyone.

  Review by Greg LaFleur (Florida USA) on Jan 09, 2017
My purchase of the Sibell 8 channel DVR was accompanied by 2 Sibell IR done cameras. My feeling and later guidance from the pros at SCK was to go with a system with the same manufacture of DVR and cameras for the best system performance. I can't write this review without including something about the people at SCK... they have ben phenomenal to talk to... they are extremely friendly and willing to provide the "right" guidance.

Regarding the DVR.. it was a simple plug and play with the BNC connection cameras... I also used a "powerline adapter" to get and internet connection to the DVR which I then connected to the Sibell app for viewing on my iPhone. The entire system. set up has been incredibly easy to install and operate and get excellent video speed and quality. At the moment I only have 2 cameras on my system but will be adding up to 6 cameras in the next few months... and of course will only make my purchases from SCK, they've earned my business with their excellent employees and customer service. The best part for me.. is that they are local so picking up from their location is very convenient and easy.
