Avigilon NVR4X Versus COTS?

A customer wants to use their own hardware on a project where they were quoted 8 of the NVR4X-PRM-192TB NVR's. Assuming hardware specs are in line (cpu, ram, storage, ethernet speeds - all of it really) what would the customer be losing if they used their own hardware. This model has an MSRP of over 80k so I must be missing something here?
