Ok so I am looking for a the cheapest and best Surviellance system that comes with 4 cameras and dvr. i found some on newegg for around 200 dollars, which is a great price, but want to see if anyone has any experience or recommendations for any. Thank you and leave feedback.
I do a little work for a security company. I prefer the pc based units instead of dedicated units. If you have a hardware problem you are back up and running with standardized parts as opposed to shipping them off.

Not helping much, but see if you can find the one that has a camera that detects movement, and is wirelessly connected to a receiver that can most likely connect to current channels. Also, if you install a movement detecting light, then you'll have a better picture, and you'll dazzle a thief, and also you'll light your own way. The receiver has a noise to alert you if someone is there. Also you can remotely view the image if you've hooked the video box (contains access points and hard drive) to your network, and, in some cases, set the system to record. Sorry I don't know the name, but now you have an idea of what to look for. You should find a good price of you look hard.
Wilife is definitely the way to go, because you can set the destination folder for recorded video to a public drop box account. In the event that your HD or computer is stolen, the video of the theft will still be saved in your drop box account. Also, with the Wilife system you don't have to wire the cameras. It uses your house's electrical system to modulate video signals. (this technology has actually been around since the 1960's and works quite well)
The older less expensive system is still available for sale, and works great. One drawback is that you have to have a Windows mobile phone for remote viewing of cameras, but for $175, it's still a very capable system.
