[Newegg] LaView 6 camera POE 1080p Surveillance System ($1949 reg.) $599 HOT!

LaView LV-KN988P86A4 Premium IP Surveillance System 8 Channel NVR + 6 x Full HD 1080P Day/Night In/Outdoor Cameras (No HDD Included)

At $599.99 with free shipping. Ignore the supposed $1949.99 full price as I think that's WAAAAY inflated. Their $1000 off $949.99 price is an "OK" price but a further $350 discount with promo code CEMCKNKR57 makes it HOT. I've googled the reviews and they look very good. All in the total comes to $683.64 with taxes and the $5 EHF. It looks like it's for today only since they called it a Green Monday sale. This was a perfect way to use the $5 PayPal discount in my wallet. Don't forget RFD has a further 3% rebate!

EDIT - Despite the name of the sale, it is not Monday only. The promo code expires on December 20th.
EDIT 2 - The 4 camera version is now on sale for $449.99 but the shipping is $9.99. Just follow the link above then click 4 cameras.
EDIT 3 - Now that the sale has expired, they are offering a $300 discount instead of $350. Unless you need 6 cameras, the 4 camera package is a better deal IMO.
EDIT 4 - The 6 camera version is on sale again as part of their Pre-Boxing Day sale for $599.99.
EDIT 5 - Unfortunately, rebate from RFD has been reduced down to 2% now :(

Not included HDD? Is this the terminal box?

For that price I would wait until one of the Costco ones drop in price since if it doesn't work you can at least return it.

Not sure what you mean by terminal box but it appears to have everything else except the hard drive. That worked out fine for me as they charge a premium for the hard drive and I have a few laying around anyway. The NVR has SATA connectors so you can just attach any SATA drive of any size. It has two SATA connectors so I wonder if you can RAID them for extra protection or if it's only for extra storage?

I'd agree Costco would be much simpler for returns, however, could not find anything that's POE and 1080p with 6 cameras for anywhere close to $600. I personally only need 4 cameras but I'd rather get more rather than not getting enough and have to buy them separately.

Great price, NVR rebooting frequently seems to be an issue reported often, not sure if I want to deal with that headache.

I'd sacrifice quality for reliability and Customer service personally

It says weatherproof, outdoor, but do you think it'll be able to withstand a Canadian sub 20 Celsius winter? Have had another brand freeze out on me. No temperature rating?

I have a laview 4 camera system from newegg, but not poe / 1080. the software works... OK. I couldn't end up getting the app working consistently and their documentation was very poor, after literally 12 hours of fiddling and emailing their support in asia I found the direct url to the camera feeds, but it was different from what their tech support was telling me.

If you're saving significant money on this I can see it being worth while, if you want easy plug play with all the features I'd go for something with north american CS

Apparently they call this system "plug & play" as it's suppose to work just by plugging in the camera and it supplies the power and auto detects etc. I did see some reviews saying the documentation was very minimal though and you should still tweak the individual cameras as the images are not ideal out-of-the-box. Just glad I found that out beforehand as obviously picture quality is important.

When I'm saying plug and play, plugging the cameras in does indeed work easily - but my difficulties were more in the mobile viewing and setting up a secondary backup on a computer/cloud, which was very difficult with extremely minimal documentation.

Mind posting some links or providing some details on how to do these things? I'm sure people who bought this want to avoid the pains you went through. Thanks!

Would be happy to but don't have time yet, people can PM me after christmas for it - I don't have this exact DVR so it could potentially be different as well.

Oh yea, most 1 star reviews online are because of mobile viewing not working. Don't buy this if this is an important feature for you.

Thought I would share this little tidbit I found as I'm sure others are in the same situation...

So, my big fear about any surveillance system was installation. Don't know how nor feel like ripping drywall in order to properly run the wires down to a central location from the attic. What you can do instead is buy a POE switch and buy two powerline adapters. Now all you'd need to do is run all the wires to this switch, plug 1 powerline adapter to the switch and another powerline adapter to wherever you want the NVR. This assumes you have a power outlet in the attic, which I don't. However, it should be a lot less work and less costly to run just 1 power outlet to the attic.

Anyone else have other suggestions for installation?
