D-Link DCS-5300W

Brian Haskell, Amazon
6 July 2010
  • Summary: This item is a discontinued model from D-Link and I knew it when I bought it. The seller has been helpful and D-Link email tech support has been helpful also, albeit rather slow in response. Yet, I have not been able to get it working wirelessly.

work well, durability issues.

Bubba, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought 2. VERY pleased with setup and operation. After 2 years, one of the PTZ motors stopped working. I would LOVE these cams if they lasted longer. One feature that I cant live without is that I can view the cams on my Windows Mobile cellphone. Had to use a 3rd party application, [...

okay when it works

TLuke, Amazon

  • Summary: The DCS-5300 only works with Internet Explorer, which is okay. The DCS-5300 lets you remotely control the camera, which is okay. The DCS-5300 reboots itself every 24 hours from when you plugged it in, which is okay.

Nice Camera shame about the IP software.

Mr. Robert James Green, Amazon
13 February 2008
  • Summary: The camera is a nice design, fair quality image and easy to set up. The enclosed web-based software from Dlink is nice and easy to handle and does the job cleanly and simply. Exactly what you want from a home or small office camera system to monitor activity.

Works well enough

S. Wilensky, Amazon
6 September 2007
  • Summary: This was to replace my old D-Link 6620 camera which just quit working eafter about 1 year. I figured why spend a fortune if they don't last. This one is clearly a lower quality camera in every way.

DCS-5300W not stable enough for monitoring

John K "John K", Amazon
17 February 2005
  • Summary: I finally got my DCS-5300W to work after upgrading to the most current firmware (v1.04) but the camera still keeps hanging just about every night. It is also constantly doing network reconnects. This makes the camera useless for a surveillance device but it is a great toy!
