Hikvision NVR Vs Genetec Security Center

We have an old installation of some 40 obsolete cameras running on Ganz software (running on an old obsolete server), that we want to replace with new digital cameras.

And we have a brande new system running Genetec Security Center with 9 Axis P1365-E cameras.

One option is to implement the new cameras (I am considering Axis P1425-LE Mk II bullet cameras, that at some 649,00 Euros + VAT I think is a good price/performance) on the Genetec System.

One vendor is proposing a completely different approach : using Hikvision DS-2CD2632F-I cameras (that at a mere 259,00 $ END USER PRICE including VAT is an exceptional price/performance: I have been using Hik DS-2CD2632F-I at some installations, and are even better than Axis P1425-LE Mk II bullet cameras,or than the Axis P1365-E cameras for that matter: more vivid colors, extremely detailed images and at night the images are very visible because of the powerful infrared leds):

with a Hikvision NVR.

My question is : which are the major drawbacks and inconvenients that we might have using Hikvision NVRs instead of Genetec Security Center software ?

Thanks in advance for any answer or comments.
