a good deal for a surveillance system?

I've been asked by a friend to help him choose and install a surveillance system for his small business. My initial impulse was to set it up a wired system using a computer with zoneminder
, where we'd purchase a video capture card and four cameras.
Then I came across a ready made system
that seems pretty decent.
I'm really inexperienced in this area, and not sure what to make of the product. It fits my friend's budget (~$500), and looks easy to set up.
His primary purpose is to have a video record of the store so if something goes missing he can review the footage.
Are we better off buying the components separately and going with a linux system with zoneminder, or does this look legitimately worthy?
