Has anyone purchased this?  How is it?
Also how do you actually purchase it?  Their store page has no working links and no prices.

Send them an email with the required number of channels and then pay them via Paypal. Starting rate is US$20 per channel.

My place has some Dahua 4 channel NVRs, as well as cameras. PM me if you are interested, we sell them to individuals.
Actually I found it pretty ridiculous many professional CCTV distributors don't sell NVRs and cameras to individuals, neither list their price, unless you fill their application form and open an account. 
You can come have a look and pick it up if you are in auckland.

The reason most don't is because NZ law is very clear when it comes to CCTV gear - you have to be licenced to sell it, and legally have to be licenced to install it. Most big companies selling gear aren't going to want to deal with possible implications of this, or selling to small home users.

There are a few things I am not clear, is about still some big companies they sell CCTV system DIY Kit. Does that mean their customers (say homeuser) can DIY the system without licence?or does that mean homeusers have to find a licensed installer to install their camera (from DIY kit), otherwise it is illegal to install a camera?
So people DIY their CCTV at home is illegal?
I guess this is like electrician or plumber, they need to be certified and licensed to do their job, for example to change your bulb or water tap. This is business action. But you may say "wait!I am a handy man I can do it myself", this is a personal action and you don't break any laws for change a bulb or water tap for yourself.
