Well there is so much info out there but yet who can you believe? Lol anyway I just bought my first house a few months ago in a very rural area.. I have about 5 entryways into the house not counting windows.. Im looking to find something that is good but not overly expensive.. It doesnt need to be wireless(no internet available here without me using my hotspot) I need something with at least 4 cameras but want something that is able to have 8 just in case I want to add others. Now my price range is 350.00 but if there is something that is a much better option I can up my budget a little.. I have been looking at the amcrest 960h 8 ch setup but I am seeing some mixed reviews on it. Not sure how I feel about it.. Like I said im completely new to this so I have no clue whats good..

You wont get much for $350. The system you referenced is sad, not even HD. Save up about $600 for something like this

That's What I figured this is why I'm here lol

What about this one? Also being a Poe I can still use it without being connected to the Internet correct?

That system is only 4 channel, so you'd max out at 4 cameras. Also 2 of the cameras are 2mp. The system I referenced is 8 channel and all 4 cameras are 3mp. Any system that has an onsite DVR/NVR can be used without internet. POE has nothing to do with it. Internet connectivity simply allows for the cameras to be viewed away from home.

Im also wondering if I should just spend the money now on a 6-8 camera instead of just 4 right now.. is the 1080 vs 2k that much more of a difference?
