all look cheap and nasty, most half decent equipment will give a 3-5 year warranty for not much more than those prices.
Thanks for your response is there any Dvr's,cameras you would suggest using or what spec I should be looking out for
As always, it depends on what you're wanting to look at...

Unbranded DVR has a good sized disk and useful features. I've got no idea what it'll be like.

Camera 1 looks okay but if they can't spell "colour" you might want to check that it's got PAL video output! :rolleyes:

Camera 2 looks pretty good - Sony is a good make.

Camera 3 might be good for a porch.

Remember that wide angle lenses give you very small images - people 30' away may only be 1/10th of the screen height. You'll never recognise a face.

Sorry not to be of much help - there are just too many of these things on the market!

just because it says sony it does not mean its a good camera, the lens quality can be the differance between a good and bad image.
