We have had a salemsan call our office a couple times wanting us to use their product, they often times do mention the 10 year warranty as a selling point. It is briefly mentioned on of the first pages of their product catalog, hard drives are not covered in the warranty but everything else appears to be.

ICRealtime - 10 year warranty
ClearviewCCTV - 7 year warranty
Same Dahua OEM products
Clearview stuff significantly less expensive
Sidebar: How long should a relatively inexpensive camera's warranty cover?
Check this exception / clause out:
"Service and warranty repairs are prorated from the end user date of purchase. For Four (4) years (48 months) after purchase IC RealTime covers 100% of replacement or repair costs. After 4 years (48 months), replacement or repair value will prorate for normal wear & by .83 % per month from date of purchase through the end of warranty period. Replacement, upgrade or repair charges are calculated at standard dealer or MSRP pricing whichever is applicable . Warranty is non-transferrable." [Emphasis Added]
It appears that the warranty is, at best, partial after 4 years. So if the product fails at 4 years and 1 month, you would get a 59% credit for a replacement, not a 'free' replacement. Likewise, after 6 years, you only get a ~40% credit for a replacement.
Anyone can confirm or deny this?
