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.
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.
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.
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.
Cam software less than great the cam picture pretty good.

Summary: This does not go in easy.. They need to do more work on the install and recognition of cam Mac-id , it worked better under xp some what, the main consol I could not get set up on ether pc with Xp or Win7.. They need updates for thiis type of install. I got the camera working in the moble aps after a one time shot at instll on an old XP machine..Not sure ehat the problem is..
Summary: I have been trying for the past week to get my DCS-5222l camera to send email. It definitly isn't as user friendly as the Panasonic camera I have. I called customer support. The first one put me on hold for 20 minutes until I hung up. They called back an hour later and said we must have been cut off - no. I called someone else and they ran me through all the boilerplate questions.
Summary: The cameras arrived promptly and were will packaged. The installation was not simple as the setup software has errors and their technical support thought the cameras were defective. After some work arounds, and some trial and errors working with their software applications, I did get both cameras working both wired and wireless. I have a number of earlier DLink IP cameras that were easier to install.
Summary: First time with any kind of camera, I expected better performance, but do not know how this compares to others. Weak receive signal, it would not work in areas that a Laptop PC was able to connect to wireless and work fine, had to re-position my wireless router to get adequate signal out to where this unit is mounted.
