I had recently purchased a complete FS system for my father, and after getting it setup for him, I decided I wanted one as well. I already had the cameras, just needed the NVR instead of just being able to watch the cameras, now I could record them as well. The recording feature is pretty great. You can select any or all the cameras and see them on a single timeline, making it very easy to go through recordings. The motion detection is spot on as well, any time a car would go by, or a bicycle or someone walking it would capture it.
