    I am looking for an inexpensive digital recorder for an existing 4
    camera system. What equipment on the "economy" end of the scale could
    you guys recommend. Does not require a lot of features. Just a solid
    simple unit.
    thanks dan

    Kalatel StoreSafe has a built in CDRW and Ethernet card with remote
    access software called WaveReader. We sell the four channel/ 40GB
    unit for less than $2000 w/o installation and for around $2250 with
    installation, setup, and training:

    Yes, that's the unit. I gave approximate pricing only so the end user
    would know about what it costs. I have no interest in selling the
    unit to the original poster.

    Kalatel rep told me he is disgusted with the (newly) discovered 40% failure
    rate of DVR systems.... ;(

    I think the 40% failure rate was probably on those Kalatel units installed
    in attics in the Bahamas.

    That's true for most installation companies. However, due to the huge
    number of units we sell, we tend to receive favorable pricing from
    certain manufacturers which can offset the higher overhead rates.
    Kalatel happens to be one of those "preferred" vendors. We don't have
    to buy equipment through ADI like the mom and pop companies.
    According to our pricing guidelines, the unit in question could be
    sold and delivered to a customer for about $1756 with a perfectly
    acceptable profit margin. This type of transaction doesn't really fit
    into our core business model. We are in the business of installing
    and servicing complete systems whenvever possible. Unless the
    customer is very well qualified to install and program the equipment,
    I would be hesitant to sell it in the manner described above. If
    someone is just looking to buy parts and pieces, I would rather have
    them do business with someone who specializes in such transactions.

    no dey still werking her mon!

    actually ive had these working in somewhat attic conditions for over a
    year, DSR-2000e's. Have a couple SDVRs in some more prestine
    enviroments, banks, large homes, etc :)

    I dont see any failure in them, though they still use a Hard Disk so
    anything is possible, especially with power failures without line

    Really?? Gasp!!
    Brilliant deduction, Sherlock... Your investigative skills are improving...
    I take it you confirmed this on their web site...
    Whom besides yourself do you include in the "number of folks here"?? Since
    when do you "speak for anyone else in the group"?? Are you not the same
    "Robert L. Bass" who frequently posts warnings about people that do exactly
    that?? Hello?? Dang!! No one's home again...

    So you frequently post the speculations of others and present them as
    "facts" in the group... (Sound of open palm striking forhead)... That's
    obvious, Frank!! Sorry... blonde wig is now removed...
