No worthy at all

Pros: cameras look great when they work
Cons: cameras never work for more then one day.
"i been using this product already for a few months, cameras look great when they are working but as usual they never do. remote motoring from cellphone is horrible frame would refresh like every 5 minutes obviously when the cameras are working. of no reason you wold loose image on the DVR like every other day. BUT MOST IMPORTANT "DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT COUNT ON CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER HELPING YOU OUT""

DVR -- Shuts Down Freqly.

Pros: high quality camera; easy set-up.
Cons: nvr fail rate too high -- not recommended.
Model Number: LNR300 HD NVR
"Most of the reviews are positive on this prod. I have to agree that the cameras are high quality. BUT, I cannot say the same about the NVR. It has been in operations for two weeks now and it shuts down for no reason about once every two to three days. Surprisingly, I think this NVR has an auto reboot function. It comes back online about two hours later. I studied the user manual but there is no information on how to do this manually. I've been calling their customer service line but it is always busy and hangs up on me.
If the NVR is online and working less than 99.9% of the time, then, this unit is virtually useless. I have a public display monitor located at a prominent location at my shop and "customers" can tell that the unit if off-line.
For me, this was a bad expenditure of $1,000. I was impressed with this unit so I decided to order two more. They have not yet arrived. Once they do, I am going to return them to Costco. I am going to try out AvertX NVR and see if that unit is more reliable.
Perhaps, I got what I paid for but $1,000 unit should perform better than this."

Night vision is ok...

"PROS: Very easy setup, easy installation, great daytime HD quality, large hard drive, well packaged, great night vision when low to the ground, visor is removable on cameras.
CONS: Mediocre grainy night vision when capturing from 80' and busy terrain, loud fan, remote is mediocre and haven't been able to make it work, more expensive then buying the same unit with only four cameras and adding two additional ones, menu has some lag when processing and is not very user friendly, have to click apply after changes have been made to a page too often, motion detection is decent but could use improvement.
OVERALL: I would recommend this brand. It does what I need it for, and is decently priced. Once technology advances or prices drop I'll probably upgrade to a more professional setup or upgraded cameras."

Disappointed, Not worth the money

Pros: camera quality on hdmi feed is good
Cons: only get purple boxes in android 2.3 app, pc software also has remote access problems, dvr is noisy
Model Number: LNR 380
"So far it just doesn't stack up, Remote app doesn't work properly (connects but only has purple video feeds), and tech support took two weeks to get back to me with no suggestions. NVR and software don't seem to function very well either. I have a 3 year old REVO security system from Costco also, and that works great. I need to make sure the two systems don't share ports, as the Lorex confgures itself, but on first glance it didn't appear that the two systems should interfere with one another."

Awesome Value

Pros: great quality and easy to install
Cons: none
"This system is uber easy to install, and the quality is superb. At first we had a security come into our small office and give us a quote for over $4,000 for a system that seemed to be about the same quality as this. After purchasing this, we had our IT company install it for only $400. He said this is one of the easiest systems he's ever installed and is going to recommend it for future clients of his."

Great System!

Pros: great resolution good night viewing
Cons: dome cameras seem to have shorter distance
Model Number: Lorex 8 Channel Stratus HD NVR Security System with 2TB HDD and 6 1080p Cameras
"The system was easy to install. The only issue we had was using the dome camera beyond 100'. Camera resolution is fantastic and system was easy to setup. I did have some questions and both Lorex tech staff and the Costco Concierge were both very helpful. I was impressed with their commitment to the customer. I would recommend this system and also the Lorex and Costco tech support."

Great Performance Product

Pros: high quality and easy installation
Cons: none

"I was impressed with technical specs vs price point and decided to order one. First I was impressed with Costco shipment and the packaging of the unit was very good. All the accessories and cameras were great. Documentation and installation was great. I got this for a small business and will be getting one for my home."
