I purchased this DVR to go with my Lorex LW2231 wireless camera and the quality of the night vision was so terrible. Someone had thrown their trash in my small front yard and I couldn't tell if it was a man or a woman. I couldn't even make out the type of car they were driving but yet after reading all of the reviews there was only one other person that had the same problem I did. Is it possible the DVR I purchased and returned was defective? I live on a fixed income so I can't afford the more expensive DVR's, I would li,e to think you don't have to pay hundreds of dollars to be able to identify the individual that's vandalizing your property.

We're sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your system and we were happy to assist you further with this. Thank you.

This is such a dump run company that I called tech support because one of my cameras were not working and told him it was wired in to the ceiling and he said just pull the cord out so I did and now the freaking wire broke. Called customer support and these people refused to warranty it because I pulled the wire out. This is a piece of crap business do not buy there products.

I bought this as a replacement unit for a Swann 4 channel. The Swann worked fine, but I could never get the remote capabilities (view from Mac browser, phone) to work. So I spent a lot of time climbing up to where the unit was installed trying to view recordings using the very primitive UI with the mouse and remote--a real pain.

This new unit from Lorex has almost all the same features, but the interface is much improved and connection via my local network to the Mac and my phone was very easy.

Ordered this unit because my older Lorex DVR crashed. Lorex states they will ship within 24 hours when you order. It has now been 3 days and they have not shipped. When I called them they told me it would not be shipped until tomorrow (the 4th day) or later. They have my money and my product. I wonder how responsive their customer tech. support will be?

I bought a LH03045G stand-alone DVR (4 channel) on sale for $99 - good price comparatively.

Calle Tech support about the Remote - thought it was not working but staffer asked me to press the zero button 3 times (not sue if THAT is in the instrux) but it needs a press and hold till you hear a beep...and it works fine.

Lady was patient, helpful.

4 stars because I have not yet set up the Cam - and don't know how that will work out - but so far, so good. Fast shipping, arrived in good condition and everything works!

We had a previous 8 channel DVR installed that was a horrible experience. This new Lorex product was the best thing ever. Plug and play. The internet setup was trivial, as was setting up email alerting. The motion detection alerting feature is amazing, very helpful. Picture quality is much improved. The viewing application (android, iphone, pc and mac versions!) are all way better than I had anticipated.

If you have an antiquated 4 channel analog BNC DVR, upgrade to this thing.

I purchased the DVR and Camera system after researching other products. My IT director recommended Lorex. I was extremely pleased with the price of the system , however the clarity of the picture is much less then I was hoping for. I have another brand of wireless camera and the detail and resolution is amazing. I am attributing the quality to the price I paid. I was very pleased with the external look and quality of both the DVR and the cameras, I am sure they will last. I also had to call Lorex support numerous times to get the remote viewing aspect up and running. I was treated very well it was obvious they wanted to help solve any problem I may be experiencing. I will purchase a more expensive camera for this system in hopes the picture quality is better.

This unit replaced an everfocus dvr and the customer was very happy with the product. The ease of operation was so much better than the thumbwheel technology on the everfocus. The size of the unit and even though we kept the same cameras the picture resolution was so much better, its as if I installed new cameras. The network setup was so much more reliable. with the Lorex dns server we don't have to worry about always losing connection as she did with the Everfocus product. Also The Lorex tech support response times have even gotten better since the Flir merger.Thanks again.

I cant stop writing about these systems,so I will just say that the amount of time to get this setup for remote viewing is incredible, what would take hours before takes minutes, that alone is a great reason to buy the lorex product, dvr and cameras work suberbly as well.

I used this unit to replace a Q-See DVR. It was true plug and play--took only a few minutes including software installation. The Q-See never had usable remote access software while the Lorex software is incredibly good on both an Android phone and desktop PC. It's very easy to set up motion recording and motion recording works flawlessly across multiple camera brands. The price of the unit is very affordable but I bought it for the features and reviews, not the price. Buy it and don't look back!

Product has been reliable for over a year. The Easy connect wizard wouldn't recognize the model of my router so I had to do the port forwarding manually which was kind of a pain and is what took me so long to get the remote viewing set up. I now can monitor the house while at work, which is great. Glad to finally have online access!

Looking forward to setting up email notifications and motion activation also.

DVR, motion detection very easy to set up... for the most part I set up functions etc. without even opening instruction manual.... remote viewing is great--peace of mind in a box. The footprint, weight and overall appearance of the DVR fits right in with the TV/monitor that it's interfaced with and most people don't even notice it. Installation of cameras etc was relatively easy (I did myself) however I do understand not everyone is a DIY, but it was pretty straight forward. I highly recommend this product for pricing, ease of setup, operation, functionality and appearance... Five Stars!

I ordered this model looking for an upgrade to me existing Lorex edge that was 4 years old. There was nothing wrong with my old unit. I just wanted better features and maybe a backup and more ports. I was surprised when the blackblox 2 showed up. it's an outstanding unit that supports 960H. I had camera that supports that format so it was an instant upgrade on the quality of the picture as well. The BB2 run great, no problems, great picture, great software, good remote,

TIP: for me, the remote viewing works better P2P then Relay. So go through the DDNS configuration and access it that way. You'll have to port forward port 80 on your router (and don't use 80 use something else). good luck

I bought a 4 camera system 2 years ago. One camera failed withing a few months. I got another through my warranty. The new camera has a much better picture than the other 3. Recently the DVR failed & I contacted Lorex about repairing it. I was told that the repair would cost $200 plus parts. I asked about the price of a new DVR and was told I could buy a new one for $140. How stupid is it that they would charge $200 plus to repair my old DVR when I could buy a new one for only $140 with a new 1 year warranty? This system is cheap and you get what you pay for. I could not get a local CCTV repair guy to even come out to look at my system. He said it is too cheap to fix. If you can find another manufacturer, buy it from them even if you have to pay a bit more.

I upgraded to this model from a previous LH400 Model that I had for over 4 years. My camera system was already installed from the previous installation so all I had to do was install the DVR. The installation directions were straight forward and easy to understand. I only had to have technical help from Lorex on my port forwarding because of my internet provider complexity of their router. Lorex technical help has always been very helpful with issues and within 5 minutes it was ready to go. The difference in software usage from one unit to the other is a little different but once you start using it, it is quite simple. I believe my cameras picture quality is better than before and that my be because of the way this unit processes the picture.

DVR was very easy to set up to record. Learning all the features was not quiet so easy. Reading the manual is a must to use all the features. The firmware needs to be updated to handle the latest web browser so you can connect over the local network without doing some tricks. On IE 11 you have to use comparability mode, and on Chrome and Firefox I had to download and use IE Tab. I learned this by reading some of the FAQ's on another model and tried it and it worked. The mouse is not the best but it works. The VGA connector flexes when you move the cable and may be a weak point. Overall it is a very good product with a few minor flaws but it does the job.

This DVR is an outstanding surveillance system DVR for the price. I've only had it for a couple of days now, but it was easy to set up and has all the bells and whistles of a more expensive recorder. I especially like the motion detector so I don't have to review an 8 hour recording like I had to do when I was using a standard DVD recorder. Using the mouse and the copy feature, makes it easy to set up all the other cameras. Great buy!

Good system for the price. I had another more expensive Lorex previously that lasted 5 years before the onboard NIC went bad. I like the fact that this system supports smart phone applications.

Have only had this unit a few days. It is a very basic DVR unit. Definetly not worth the regular $399 price tag on it. Instructions are not very good. Still don't know how long the recording will remain on the hard drive before it is recorded over using 4 cameras. Video review is pretty easy to work. Recorded images are fair.

I have a computer systems technical support background and found this easy to setup. I like it. Cool product! The only glich I had was that there is a separate ID for the remote access from my iPhone, so I spent time figuring that part out. I had to dig into the Lorex web site to find the documentation that made the light come on for me. I would like to see an iPad app instead of using the smaller iPhone app on the iPad. I would definitely recommend others to use this product. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!

The DVR itself is very simple to install and use. I think its actually better than the 8 channel one I had before because it has a usb plug for the mouse on the front of the machine and it also offers two opinions for connection to the monitor: VGA or HDMI. I just hope that this DVR will last a long time. Its working great so far.

This DVR is very easy to set up. The features are really nice, although the remote viewing - port forwarding is hard to set-up. The task should be completly automated.

This is my second DVR. First one didn't have iphone capability. Current DVR works lot better. First one had to be reconfigured repeatly due to constantly changing internet address. I had to call tech support and spend 30 minutes each time. After 1 year, tech support ran out, so I couldn't use it anymore, so it was left unused for several years. I bought current DVR for the iphone and so far has worked great. I hired techie to set this up, but I still had to call Lorex to help connect iphone. Seems the set up is very complicated, so even the techie couldn't figure it out. Techie set the internet address to "static", so hopefully the DVR doesn't need to be constantly reconfigured. Hope Lorex will figure out how to deal with constantly changing internet address and make set up more easier. The first DVR, I hired installation techs recommended by Lorex. They were able to set up local viewing but couldn't figure out internet viewing either. The current techie I hired thru Radio Shack set up internet viewing but couldn't figure out iphone viewing. Like I mentioned, Lorex needs to figure out how to do set up easier. Currently, everything works great. I just pray that it stops working like last time because of changing internet address.

Overall - I like it.

Pros: Easy to setup with intuitive menus for the most part, lots of good YouTube how-to's and helpful tech support from Lorex. The "behind router" and ddns video streaming works great too, but did require a tech from Lorex to take over my machine to complete these tasks. Its relatively small and light weight.

Cons: So what's not to like? After powering down the DVR, moving it, and powering it back up the time was way off. So I've reset it again (it seems to run fast now) and I'll have to see if that's a chronic issue when there's a power outage. I have a surge protector but not a UPS connected. The BNC connectors seem a little flimsy with the RCA convertor hanging off the end of that, any movement makes the video signal cut in and out, so I won't be touching that much, but I shouldn't have to now that its in place. I'm only running one camera so I guess I have three spare connections. None of these are show stoppers.

Unknowns: This DVR will now be on indefinitely, so it will be interesting to see what the mean time between failures is.

Now that I have finally set everything up and tested it for a few days I must say, that overall I am not impressed with the system. It does the bare minimum and you will be hard pressed to capture decent pics of any would be crook on here let alone a decent face shot of yourself passing through the monitored area.

I have 2 wirless cameras, and the 4 camera dvr. The image quality is poor and the frame rate is not good at all. Captured image is choppy at best, and my signal is poor despite setting the camera's up within 30 ft of the receivers. (Yes the signal passes through 2 walls for 1 camera and 1 wall for the other camera.) I finally have it so it will sit at about 3 bars strength, but occasionally it still cuts out and says"Connecting" for a second or two and loses the recording. (I actually had to have 1 camera moved in to the front of the garage instead of the back (16 foot difference) as i get no signal at the back of the garage....

When I could not get an initial picture on the cameras (That needed to be synced and moved within range), the tech expert could not answer my questions and repeatedly told me he was only "Tech support" and didn't know the answers to my questions. (like why wasn't anything about range extenders necessary mentioned etc)

The DVR settings are pretty easy to use and self explanatory, but coupled with the poor image quality, this will be of little use (I believe) unless the tresspassers stop and stare up into the camera for a few seconds....It also wouldn't hurt if they were to write their name on a piece of carboard and hold it up there too, but even then i'm not sure we'd get a good enough image to read it.

This system is not worth the money. Buy something higher end and save your money. I do not blame Lorex, this was my own fault for not doing the proper research. Learn from my lessons here people. you get what you pay for.

I bought this DVR and plugged it in. It worked for about 10 min and then would not even power on. I had a horrible experience with customer support and ended up calling them 5 times, each time waiting in the queue at least a half hour and was hung up on twice. I finally called customer service who says they will replace the dvr come Monday, but I am doubtful. If I ever get a working DVR I will write another review.

This DVR is very easy to set up. The features are really cool, although I haven't set up the remote viewing - port forwarding yet. The menu is very user friendly. The mouse and remote control work fine. Don't forget to get a UPS with surge protection to plug into.
