Update 9/26/2017 although I contacted and exchanged several emails with the reseller they offered no solution and have not agreed to just take back the unit. I did however find they sold me an international version unit. There are different versions of the firmware out there including a newer version of international on the Hikvision Europe website. I was able to upgrade but no fix. Decided to try the firmware available on the US site. Even though this is an international version (they did not disclose this at time of purchase) the US firmware will run apparently. All of my Hikvision cameras are US/English and run latest firmware. It would help if the resellers would be more forthcoming and disclose the target market for the firmware. But these are essentially gray market items so buyer beware. My experience indicates there is an issue with the international firmware working with US/English based Hikvision cameras (I am running 11 Hikvision cameras. My review stays at 1 star due to the total lack of support from the reseller based on my email exchange they have little understanding and just want to sell you an NVR.
For storage, I've added a WD Purple 6 TB hard drive, which seems to work just fine. I plan to add a second after I add more cameras.
For cameras, I've added a 2.8mm lens Hikvision turrent-style camera. These are the kind without a glass dome, and they are much less conspicuous than the dome variety. I configured the camera to only record when it detects motion, which really saves on disk space, and makes searching for events easier.
After initial setup, I did some customization. For example, I setup e-mail alerts for when a camera stops working, or an illegal login happens. I use a Gmail account for this, and it is possible to get Gmail working with TLS security, if you follow these instructions that I found on the interwebs:
Get Gmail Working in Hikvision:
1. Open iVMS-4200, navigate to Device Management, Remote Configuration, Event, Email
2. User Name: email address WITHOUT @gmail.com
3. Password: your Gmail password
4. SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
5. Port: 587
6. E-mail Encryption: SSL
Then setup a destination e-mail address and test it - it should work. Note that port 587 is for TLS, even though you check the box for SSL. TLS is more secure than SSL.
So to re-cap, this is a good NVR with many useful features, it could be easier to setup, but if you are OK with entering IP addresses and default gateways, then you'll be fine.
