  • I3dvr

    Has anyone used I3DVR product line before? Can someone please provide indepth specs for this product line if possible? Also, what makes this DVR tick better than what you have used before?

    Very curious what people in this forum will say about this product line. I am hoping that all the inputs and the observations will be very technical.

    Thanks in advance!

    That thingy sure is better than that whatchamacallit from that other company.

    Seriously, though, my last job studied the line about three years ago but did not pick it up- against my recomendation. My new job doesn't carry it.

    I recall it was pretty cool looking.

    "Expert" is something like "leader". It's not a title that you can ever claim for yourself no matter what you might know or might have done. It's a title that others bestow on you based on their assessment of what you know and what you have done.

      3 years in the DVR business is generations. Things change. I don't know a thing about the i3, just saying.

        I have used, installed and now am spending a lot of time servicing them.

        In basic enviroments, such as mom/pa shops, it works relitivly well. You will expereince premature HHD failures and the ocassional PCI card failure.

        As for complex envirments, such as mulitple DVRs, multiplxors, matrix switches. Not a good idea. They tend to have "wierd" issues. What is frustrating is thier tech guys know about these, but they do not fix them.

        Also, it is hard to get replacement parts. I have one that has been sitting on my repair bench for two months. I finaly found out the the VGA card that I have been waiting on is on back order, and they have no idea when it will come in.

        So... my sugestion. If you are considering a low end system that is easy to use, consider SAYsecurity equipment. Same software with a more stable hardware platform.

          I have never installed I3 before. I have however replaced quite a few. From the bios going out, to hd failure (tried to replace hd and new one ((same model as one that went bad)) was not compatable and would not load), to complete fried (nothing like the smell of smoked electronics). I have however seen them in small stores that worked well for the customer. I guess its like buying a car. If the car is built on monday or friday it will probably have issues.

            Good one bud

            Thanks for everyones input... I have seen their product line pop up in some areas that normally will use something different... From what I have seen so far, they are not all that and bag of chips... at least from our customers who used them before and asked us to replace with different manufacturer equipment...

            If I have a chance one of these days to get my hand on one of these pups, I would like to find out exactly what makes it tick... Besides their capture or special video card, I do not think there anything else special, as these systems are Windows based machines (from what we have seen so far)...

            I liked their playback video quality however, but then again, not sure which compression technology they are using... May be it is a product for regular mom and pop operations and not for prime time... If so, then they must be fairly cheap...

            Again, thank you all for your comments and the insight on this product line... If you come across any more info, please post, as I will do the same.

              Thanks much... I was not aware that they sell to dealers, rather I thought they sold direct... my mistake, but learning as I go...

              Was the video card that you are referring to is their capture card by any chance or some sort of special video card that works only in their systems??
