Let's post questions and answers here since security cams are a complex topic.
Q- Do the cameras perform h.264/265 encoding, or is that handled at the NVR end? A- As far as I can tell, it's handled at the NVR end. The 4-port NVR in the Amazon link supports only h.264, which takes up twice as much storage space as h.264+ or h.265.
A - IP PoE cameras are "intelligent" compared to traditional analog CCTV cameras. IP PoE cameras are basically black linux / other OS boxes with a camera attached to it. It will encode the stream and output it. NVR receive the stream, and decode what they need to for display purposes. ( and possible additional compute purposes, example Blue Iris does a lot of the compute on the PC thus why a good i5/i7 CPU is recommended. )
Q- What image sensor does this use and how does it do in low light conditions?
Q- Is it more energy efficient to use a standalone NVR, or use an existing PC that already runs 24/7?
Q- Pros and cons of using dedicated NVR vs PC/BlueIris?
3 of the 4 I bought work. Mine all came configured with 184.108.40.206, user admin and password 12345.
