TOPS DVR - Anyone Familiar With These?

A new client is currently using 10 TOPS 8916 DVRs to monitor about 200 analog cameras from their campus' main control room. System works okay and wants to add 20 more cameras plus possibly relocate the existing DVRs to another building. Don't know the age of the DVRs. Client wants my 'opinion' of their existing TOPS DVR system and offer possible reasons to replace the entire system with a more current CCTV solution. TOPS website.

Is anyone familiar with TOPS DVRs? I've never heard of them before.
