Hikvision Or Ubiquiti Video?

We have heard mixed reception to Ubiquiti's recent Hardware releases (neither price points nor features particularly compelling), and a bit more dire on the O/S and NVR changes (still proprietary, wiped out / impaired RTSP support, pre-existing features pulled without definitive timeframe for replacement).

Wondering if we are hearing / seeing the full story, and if anyone views the 2nd go round for Ubiquiti as likely to improve their standing much from the initial attempt a few years ago.

We had been told about how aggressive ubiquiti's prices are, but find a ton of alternatives with same or better specifications priced much cheaper (even with tax and freight, we can get 3MP Hikvision DS series with IR, etc).
