I know it's an old post, but just in case anyone's thinking about buying one of these, I'm updating this.
I finally unboxed and connected my ACTi E77, and this may be the worst camera I have.
With noise reduction on, the image is incredibly soft and fuzzy. Going above 1080p is just a waste of bandwidth, plus it's only 6 fps above that setting. With noise reduction off, it's better, but there are lots of sharpening artifacts in the daytime. Shadows are completely black until the WDR is turned on, and turning it up high enough to bring out the details also increases the noise.
Once the light gets low, it's astonishingly noisy, with so many sharpening artifacts from the noise that it may well be useless at night.
So far, the Hik 2032 outperforms it easily at matching resolutions, and higher resolutions don't show any improvement in detail and lose tons of frame rate.
I haven't updated the firmware yet; hopefully it will make a big difference.
