I did not upgrade (yet) for exactly this reason. I don't see any benefit.
My V4 was so unreliable I'm afraid to update. If I hear that its more stable and doesn't drop offline every time there's a windows or BI update, then I'm in. Seriously, my BI hasn't been online for more than 2 weeks at a time for 2-3 years! If its not BI, its Amcrest dropping out.
For me, YES. Used version 4 a couple years. Upgraded to V5 about 3 months ago. The usual learning differences but not that difficult. Biggest improvements for my use is in motion detection. Much more flexible. It pays big when you learn and understand the system. (I have 5 cams. 3 wifi, 2 wired on an i7 & SSD PC all 4 or 5mp cams) Reolink by the way. Not to promote any particular brand, but my experience has been fine.
