It is really unfortunate that there are so many people like him who truly believe they know what is best and are making recommendations to customers that are based on just absolute garbage data they "learned" from clueless employees of manufacturers and distributors.
John didn't you know that EVERYTHING said on facebook is 100% true and also the utmost authority, especially, IP video products :)
Granted I've not read EVERY article on IPVM, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have missed the "We're a Garbage Heap" report...
I don't think this dude understands what 'self proclaimed' means.
Huh, he's doubling down:
Btw, in fairness to him, I believe the ADI people he is talking to have never heard of Sunell. Sunell is no household name and ADI corporate gets no benefit from publicizing that, even to their own employees.
These are the same type of people who believe fake news on facebook......
Seriously starting to sound like the left vs the right...politics aside. =)

I was going to leave a comment but then I thought better of it. The level of immaturity is off the scale. As the saying goes, there's no fixing that. But it gives the trade a bad name almost as bad as used car salesman.

Is this guy even a member?
I like FB advertising for our business as well but it sure does bring out the ocassional incoherent redneck who likes to comment on our posts.

IVPM Is A Self Proclaimed Garbage Heap
Nah, it’s more like a fixer-upper:
Those Facebook posts make my head hurt... Make it stop.

I agree the immaturity is off the scale for a professional industry. I like the info IPVM is giving and we too have been using HikVision cameras with DW Spectrum VMS and am concerned with all that is happening in the Hik world & now the US Govt. ban.
Axis just sent us 2 of their cameras to try and must admit I placed them side by side with Hik and what a difference! I had only 1080 Axis cameras to 3MP Hik and Axis clearly blew them away with clarity & detail, but unfortunately with a much higher price too which is why so many use Hik & Dahua.
As far as IPVM, I might suggest not opening your statements with what sounds biased, but then again that is what grabs people to read your article. Thank you for all you do for our industry.
Dude drug himself. Seriously. If you’re going to attempt to denigrate someone or something, at LEAST be able to spell the four letter acronym of the organization that you are slamming.
*I apologize if this gentleman has dyslexia or another disorder that prevents him from spelling IPVM.
If you look at his actual Facebook page it's filled with a lot of zealotry, and I'm not just basing that on his political leanings. Zealotry can come from all sides. But it just seems to be his general nature. Egos have a hard time finding middle ground.
If this guy is a security contractor, I would hate to be his customer. I'm sure he has no problem lying straight to their faces. He is ill-informed and is probably a great ADI / W Box customer.
A fair share of SMB and residential customers, if they knew where the product was manufactured, who would tell their respective contractor to offer them another, non-Chinese option;Especially today!
Thank God for IPVM. There is just way too much information/technology to digest and decipher and not one of these manufacturers domestic or otherwise should be taken at face value. As sad as it sounds, there is a lacking of honesty and integrity in the corporate world. That's why the marketing budgets for these companies is so large. They are all in the business to make money, even if it means telling a few lies along the way. It wouldn't put a scratch on their financials.
IPVM helps keep manufacturers honest and points out the ones who are stretching it a bit.
TY John and team!
BAM, POW, SNAP!!! You go John!
