I have the DS-7608NI-K2 / 8P and very happy with it although I do read the various posts on forums such as this and wonder is it worth upgrading to the I series.

Common sense tells me my K series is doing the job fine but the little man in my head keeps knocking and telling me to upgrade to the I series.

If you are a first time buyer I would scrape the extra funds together and buy the I series but on the other hand wouldn't lose any sleep over having the K series.

Both are great NVR's.
Thanks. Glad to hear it is working out for you. Which cameras do you have?

Are you on the latest firmware or have you stayed on one of the older releases? Is smart search functionality available via IVMS if no longer available with browser?
I will look to see how much more the I series. @Phil also mentions issues with colorvu cameras, which are the ones I am going for.

Using 3 Hikvision Color-Vu DS 2CD2347G1-LU cameras here using both Hikvision UI version 4 and Web Browser through Chrome and original Internet Explorer without any issues as such.

Firmware V5.6.2 Build 200407 therefore using the flashing strobes under "Intrusion" and "Line Crossing"

Feedback through Hik Connect to my iPhone 11 works great so not so much to complain about really. :)

If you don’t mind me asking: How do you configure the flashing strobes?
Assume it’s via the cameras own configuration? In the Smart Event Linkage Method area?
I’m running Firmware V5.6.5 Build 200316 and can’t see an option, so wonder if it’s been removed or I am looking in totally the wrong place.

No problem.
Using the firmware v5.6.2 you get this option in the camera configuration panel. :)

Hello Busterboy

On the flashing strobes. Is it the LED on the camera that strobes or is it an indicator on the NVR. I have the same camera and NVR but hadn't noticed this option.

Thanks
