What's your budget? How many cameras?

The Swann range are pretty good and most come with lifetime support. If you don't mind cables, then the BNC type connectors are cheapest, but there's wires everywhere (power, video, audio) for each camera.

You can get systems that only use 1 cable (standard ethernet) which does all of the above but they tend to be more pricey. These are known as NVR (networked video recorder).

Prices range from £200-500 for a 1080p BNC (depending on number of cameras)
Prices range from £350-800 for NVR kits, but you tend to get better cameras too (1080p, 2mp, 4mp etc...) Again depending on number of cameras.

My parents purchased a BNC kit a few years back, and while the quality is very good (they're 2mp cameras), the cabling just looks obscene, no matter how tidy you make it look.

Swann are just relabelled chines knock offs.
Get a cheap £70 job from eBay, put your own hard drive in and get up a ladder and fit.
You're right about the cables though, mikes of the stuff.

I'll take a look thanks, never heard of them tbh, but I can see lots of stars on Amazon, so must be good.
