Summary: Overall, these are great cameras. I have 7 of them that have been running continuously for close to 5 years. PROS: They are very sturdy and have a c-clamp and pedestal mount included with a swivel ball at the camera base. The photo quality can be very good (megapixel models). I generally run 640 X 480 and link them to the Axis iPhone app which works great. I can keep track of my dogs, bee hives and homes very simply across wireless or 3G connection.
Summary: I've had this camera now for about 6 months. So, far I have been very pleased. For the price I couldn't ask for much more. The only thing that I would really change is making it be Wireless N instead of G. Very affordable and works well with my security software (SecuritySpy for Mac).
Summary: We got three of these and they are still serving web streams three years later. They are durable and highly configurable. All three cameras all still function properly and one of the AC adaptors blew out about two years into them and was replaced with a new power plug. One time, one of them unexpectedly reset back to factory default settings.
Summary: I always wanted to have an IP camera to watch my aquarium turtles from work and to share this interesting experience with friends. To try to spare some money and because I wanted two points of view over the aquarium, firstly I bought also through ebay two IP cameras with no brand made in Thailand. It was a pain and they gave so many headaches. They stopped working suddenly, wireless configuration was extremely complex and the image was lousy.
Summary: I am very good with computers and networking, that being said, this was a breeze to get up and running. Initial config via Lan, then switched to wifi. Great product, will buy a second or more.
Excellent image & hardware quality, good support, and slightly confusing setup

Summary: Dave and others on this forum have provided excellent detailed reviews, which I've found very representative of my own experience. I don't share the low user opinions on difficult wifi setup, or the poor support. However, the interface is a little inconsistent. Some helpful hints: I've found that you need to really understand which changes take automatically and which need to be "saved" with the button on the bottom.
Summary: I have several of these Camera's setup and have used other cheaper wirless camera's. It is worth the extra money to go with a quality camera which doesn't lockup and continues to operate. I am very satisfied with Axis, I only with there security software would run on a mac. I have 5 of these in my house, mainly as a nanny camera. I am very happy all the way, very configurable and the wireless is amazingly reliable.
Summary: Axis has done a very impressive job with these cameras. These things are thoroughly designed. Technically oriented friends are amazed when they see this thing and find out that it is not just a webcam, but a wireless video server that can support ten streams. The back end functions are very sophisticated and user-configurable.
Summary: I have purchased quite a few Axis products and have never had to use them for support. I recently went to upgrade the firmware and the firmware update bricked the camera. I went to Axis for support and they essentially were useless. Even though all indications were ok for the firmware upgrade the camera was no longer working (the camera worked 100% before).
Pretty darn good, but a couple things could be improved

Summary: I'd give this guy 4.5 stars if it was possible. I hooked up the camera and tested it. I am a computer guy (after a fashion), and it was pretty easy for me to hook up. 640 X 480 resolution was good, pretty good frame rate, and the sound was good as well. Wireless comes through nice, but it depends on the WAP you are using (this was tested on a Linksys WRT54g), and depends on the ISP you have or the ISP of the remote viewer. (like any camera).
