    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.

    POE NVR can add the cameras directly, no need to activate or make configuation, this is the easy way for new users. @looney2ns confirmed this to me.

    The 5216-16p-4ks2e I got from you last week also does the same thing. I didn't have to activate one camera or set an IP, and I could access each ip camera's internal menu from the same spot as in this review.

    I have two Dahua N54B3P E-POE NVR's running and in fact those features you describe work well, however it seems Dahua will not let you plug a laptop into a unused poe port and access your cameras anymore. On both NVR's it will give my laptop a ip address on the default subnet of 10.1.1.x and it will not let me even ping the cams let alone access them. Can anyone else confirm this feature is disabled now with the newer firmwares and features. I guess its not a bad thing for security issues and as long as you can pass-thru on the management side to access the features of the cams its ok by me but it was Damn Handy at times.

    Same here I was going nuts because I made a seperate IP Camera vlan on my switch and plugged that port into one of the poe ports and could not hit any of the cameras but I could hit the NVR's IP address on it's built in switch.
    I think to do the browser redirect they're doing some port isolation. Each port gets mapped to a specific port port number when you hit the nvr's web page.
    For example when I open up the camera on port D1 from the camera page it takes me to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:10080 and D2 takes me to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:10081. It's using specific ports to NAT to port 80 on the ip cameras.

    If you plug a laptop into one of the POE Ports, are you still able to access the Web Admin screen using the IP address of the NVR? I would think not, but just asking. If you could then maybe via the registration screen, you could access each cam via the Internet Explorer icon in Setup.

    IF you login from the management port and access the webgui, you can go to the Cam registration screen and click the IE button and it will pass thru to the cam direct. Or you can just do it through your browser http://10.10.0.36:10081/, that is a example, the port numbers go up or down.

    If you plug a laptop into one of the Poe ports you can get to the nvrs IP address on the Poe switch i.e. 10.1.1.1. I could also do this through my switch when I had the camera vlan plugged into one of the Poe switch ports.

    Adding a new camera to a Dahua NVR, easy peasy.

    Hi Chris - iirc different models for rack mountable style case - these cases are a bit too narrow

    Thanks Matt, Its the lite model, the pro models have them i believe they are 1.5U or 2 U for rack mounting but this model could be modded to fit in a rack.
