Costco had IP cameras and this OP's cameras are not and it will be obsolete in few years.

The deal from Costco is 1080p HD and 1TB capacity, whereas, this one is 960 x 480 and 500GB capacity. Those seem to be the primary differences.

I did a quick google search of what an IP camera is and it says the camera "can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet"

However, the costco cameras are wired? Sorry, I'm trying to understand what setup would be best.

Those were also Analog BNC cameras.

Interesting how the difference of 500GB of space and the difference in resolution can justify the prices. Do you know if the hard drive can be replaced in the unit on your listing? Or maybe an additional external hard drive can be plugged in via USB?

If your going to go through the effort of installing a camera system get at least 720p cameras with POE connections. It's worth spending the extra if its within your budget. I bought a 4 camera 720P POE system from sams club for $399 and been running non-stop with no issues for 5 years. All mounted outside. Daytime recording excellent, night time very impressive. Was a QSee system.

All cameras have to be wired. Even the wifi ones need power cables to each camera. POE powered cameras will be more reliable than ones that rely on wifi and one cable carries the signal back to the dvr and powers the camera.

It took me about 4 hours to do 4 cameras. That's mounting them under the sofits and running the cables through the attic crawl space. Down inside a wall to a 4 outlet ethernet wall plate that i then connected to the dvr unit. Then again I am in a 1 level house but as long as you have access to your attic its not too difficult but maybe not easy if your not up to doing all that. The good thing is once your done its all set and should be trouble free and a very clean installation. Not a single wire visible other than from the wall plate to the dvr which is hidden anyway by the cabinet the dvr is in. Planning how you will do it will save you a lot of time.

I could remove the whole system in about half an hour if I wanted to take it with me but probably would leave it with the house.

wow.I am not as capable as you are in doing this sort of installation by any means. So I guess I will have to wait for easier options in distant future.
