Anyone Using Dahua Or Hikvision On-Board Storage?

When talking about on-board storage, usually expensive vendors are mentioned (e.g., Axis and Mobotix).

A member is asking about using lower cost cameras with on-board storage. To that end, does anyone have experience using Dahua or Hikvision cameras with on-board storage? How easy / hard / complex is it to access recorded video, etc.?
