    This is also available in a 32ch version.

    I've had this up and running for a week. I have not had any issue's with it. It handles the 4k camera I reviewed here: Review-Dahua IPC-HFW5831E-ZE 8MP 4K Bullet. without any apparent problem. The display never shows any lag or other issue's when using the nvr menu's. I've used both the web interface and the gDMSS Pro app without any issue's.

    It is like most other NVR's to get to the full settings of a camera, you need to connect to the cam directly,
    This can easily be accomplished by going to the web interface of the NVR, then to setup>registration, then click on the blue internet explorer icon. See picture below.

    I have had 8 of my 2.1mp Starlights and the 4k cam all recording for several days.

    I find the noise produced as acceptable. It's not as loud as most tower computers. 10ft away from it, and I can't hear it. The loudest thing about it is the old HD I"m using.

    looks like there are key hole mounting options to mount this flat on the wall? Is that correct, or are these key holes to mount the internal hard drives?

    Thanks!

    Would be easy enough to drill 3 or 4 holes, mount to the wall. Be sure you locate the screws so as to not interfere with the HD's.

    If the 4216 is as wide as the 5216 then there is no chance in rackmounting this thing. I found someone selling a 19" drawing board to put the NVR on the "shelf", howe

    No, it didn't come with any rack ears. Chassis, with the cover on is 14.75" wide.
    But....Holes in the chassis and tapped, but no hole in the cover, which as you know would take nothing to drill.
