When I first had my CCTV installed in 2016 I didn’t really ask any of the right questions nor did I really know what brands to consider, I simply took the installers advice and went with their suggestions… twice. Needless to say, the two DVR’s I have had didn’t even last one year each. They were total no-name brands, literally. After the second one left this world I did some research and went with the Hikvision Turbo HD DVR – WOW, what a difference. I can’t tell you how much better it is than the cheap knock-offs you get. Hikvision Top Immediate things I noticed: – The overall speed of the unit. – The easy to use navigation menus. – Easier on-device viewing / exporting. – Better remote viewing.   Hikvision Back Considering the price was only around R500 more it really is worth it. The unit is well designed and looks aesthetically pleasing Hikvision Interface   One particular feature I enjoy is the redundant backup to my NAS, it copies the content so I now have a backup in case the installed HDD fails. As for negatives, I can’t really think of any. One thing I always find with these DVR’s, in general, is the close proximity of the camera cables. why, oh why does everything have to be so tight. Look, this is a common thing to be fair and not unique to Hikvision. All in all, I have been thrilled with my device and have even started changing out my no-name cameras for Hikvision ones 🙂 If you are looking for a good online retailer for CCTV and general Security equipment that is super quick and super helpful, feel free to check out CCTV Direct. I get all my stuff from them. (Please Note I have no affiliation to this company nor have I been paid for this)
