After considerable research, comparison & the expert advice from ...Review by Jurgen
After considerable research, comparison & the expert advice from HSS, I decided to upgrade my two old 4-Ch units & buy this Atrix DVR, with an additional 4 cameras -and I'm SO glad I did!
Considering the affordable price, It's incredibly feature-packed! The DVR presents an elegant, hi-tech design, it was a breeze to install & configure using the remote control to change all the settings with user-friendly, well laid-out on-screen menus. It accepted my existing 7-cams with no problem whatsoever, truly plug-n-watch.
Two features that really impressed me right from the start is the ability to choose between several different camera screen displays –those being 1,4, 6, 9 or 16. Since I’m only using 9 of the 16-Ch input capacity, this option means I don't end up with a bunch of black squares on the screen where there is no camera - a very thoughtful feature!
Second, my old system apparently had a fixed camera screen display size and I never realized that my existing cameras actually had a much wider/taller field of view! With this DVR/system there is a wonderful option to adjust the overall screen display size (stretch or squeeze) depending on the output TV screen type/size.. after I made the adjustment I realized that I could now see ALL of my old camera's true depth and had gained several percent more field of view -fantastic!
The only problem I had was the installation of the local (LAN) server software and the Web-client app (internet Explorer -which I hate, btw). Nowhere did it comment that the included disk containing the LAN server software is actually NOT even needed and is more intended for running multiple DVR systems at the same time from one program. The installation of this software is definitely a major tech undertaking and not for anyone without advanced tech-savvy. I gave up after countless tries.
Second, the same happened with the Web-client (IE) program. After numerous attempts I just could not get it to work (blaming IE of course, with its Active-X). I called HSS and was referred to Atrix. A very knowledgeable tech-support gentleman was available right away, he accessed my PC and since I had already done almost all of the configuration (DVR, IP, IE, Router, etc), the problem was resolved in less than 5 minutes. It appears that the instruction manual, under Network and Web-client configuration, states that the login Username & Password are the same (example: ADMIN), whereas the password is actually different and being the one used as the default password for the DVR. I would have never guessed that, amazing how one type error like that can ruin an entire install. The tech gentleman indicated they were aware of this and are having the manual corrected. In fact, this gentleman went above & beyond by also configuring the DDNS for me.
Aside from this minor software install issue, I would highly recommend this DVR/system and plan on getting more for other locations. But above all, I'm very impressed and completely satisfied with the exceptional Customer Service I experienced from HSS and Atrix, they have certainly gained my customer & product loyalty for future purchases - Thank You!

I have this machine in my warehouse for almost a month. I watched it with my iphone and it works great. The tech guy showed me how to download a free app and connected it. Nice machine, good price, thanks home security store. (Posted on 8/30/10)
