HD is okay...view is not as large as the 5020 but with the $50 coupon, was a good value.

  • Summary: In general I love the D-link cameras and the capability to pan the camera from my phone. The panning is very slow and sometimes does not work at all unless on wifi but this feature is still great. I can check on my animals any time of day. I also have the 5020L and it has a much larger view. The view on this camera is wide but short so it doesn't capture as much as the 5020L but the quality is much better.

Great Camera, when it works!

  • Summary: I like the camera, but it is always going off where I need to keep re-installing the software. I constantly need to reset the camera. When it does work it does come in handy. I got the camera to watch my puppies and my mommies to be (doggies). It does have a good picture, but has software issues. I don't think I would buy this camera again.

Set up is problematic

  • Summary: I'm a tech guy, and while the D-Link software offers good features, the setup / instructions should be more intuitive. Prepare for at least an hour of setup for monitoring on your mobile devices. After I set it up, I plugged it in to a different outlet and had to set it up again.

You will need lots of time to make this work.

  • Summary: The camera works great. But, the software to set it up is a joke. You log into MyDlink.com, set up an account. It all looks good. Then try to set it up...... I was using Windows 7 (64 bit) It just crashes. Then it was Google crome, a little better but, it crashes too. So I switched computers and tried Windows XP (32 bit). This was the best, but yes it crashes too. After many many attemps I finally got it working half assed.

Good - but could be better

  • Summary: The iPad software is the weakness here - the camera operates as advertised, but the applications that use it are not very good at design or performance.
