Anyone Tried Dahua HDCVI?

I installed my first HDCVI system about a week ago and I must say Im very impressed. My install consisted of the following

  • 8 Channel Dahua HDCVI DVR
  • 6 Dahua 1.3mp 720p domes

The reasons I like the system.

  1. HD resolution
  2. Installation is the same as Analog
  3. The cost is lower than Analog
  4. Customer loved it.

Dislikes

  1. Limited camera choices at the moment. Only one lens that I can find 3.6mm. No varifocal.
  2. Thats about it.

Just wondering if anyone else has tried...
