Costco is having this system (Model TN81828B8-E) for $699. The cameras seem well built and sturdy (metal body). Is this a good buy for this price? Picture quality of the demo unit doesn't seem that good for 8MP resolution. A little bit dark, IMO.

I picked up this set from Costco yesterday and today played with the cameras a little bit (connecting to the NVR). I noticed that the cameras were a tad hot to the touch. Is this normal for IP cams? I couldn't find any info on Lorex website regarding power consumption for this model of camera (E891AB). The output of the power supply to the NVR is 48V/2A. That's a total of 96 watts (for 8 cams + NVR). I recall from one of the threads that IP cams draw about 2-5 watts on the average. Just the amount of heat generated by this camera would definitely take more than 5 watts.
