Hi guys

I am hoping that you will be able to give me some input on the hikvision Nvr 7608 that I'm interested in. I saw the NZ prices on trade me which is phenomenally higher than buying the product Ali express. My question to you is:
1. Are Ali express hikvision products reliable?
2. Will I be able to upgrade firmware?
3. anybody had any issues with the camera system?
4. I saw that there are quite a few versions of the Nvr and wanted to know the difference between 7608ni vs 7608n
Thanks

The are counterfeit Hikvision products on the market so you take your chances buying from anybody but an approved reseller. You will probably be fine but when you buy anything from Aliexpress or an unauthorised distributor you're going to have to decide for yourself whether any cost savings outweight the reality that you should not rely on the seller for support. Based on the questions you're asking one assumes you know very little about CCTV kit, so the statement above is really the most important factor to decide.

I'm not very familiar with these systems. Though it seems to be quite good when reading about it online. If the Nvr has Poe and I connect the camera directly to it, attach a router to the Nvr, would my privacy be compromised?

"Will my privacy be compromised" depends entirely on what you plan to do. If you connect a NVR or IP cameras to the Internet you should never under any circumstances set up port forwards to these devices. f they have uPNP support you should ensure this is disabled so they don't automatically open up ports.
