Hmmm, let's see the tank that has a thin brushed sheet aluminum face and plastic underneath .




The Orion DVR works and works well for me. You've tried it and had a different experience?




What is the problem ????
Have YOU tried MY KS-650M unit and had a different experience ?
The one I own and use and works well for me in the field and gave me no problems either?


The KS-650M unit I own is very well made, has a solid feeling to it when you hold it, has a matte rubberized finish like SLR camera lenses .

Inside it has a Zoran chipset , Samsung Flash memory, Hynix RAM, Texas Instruments video front end and LED backlit TFT LCD , all first class components .There isn't much to go wrong inside this thing , it's a simple single board for all the main functions , using quality brand name components so if it works when you acquired it , it will keep working for the foreseeable future . Remote is stainless steel .FWIW.

The problem is that you are criticizing a piece of kit you've never used. I'm sure whatever you are using works fine, didn't imply it didn't, and have no use for the widget since I've already got something I like a lot.

I just stated the alternative I am using and in no way does that mean criticism of other devices . As I said before , I have not used the Orion DVR and have no first hand knowledge of its performance . I am using the KS-650M and found no problems with its functionality .
