GOOD VALUE

Sean L., Newegg
14 May 2007

  • Pros: First of all, the DCS 5300 has a max video resolution of 640 x 480 (at 10 frames per second) not the 320 x 240 that Newegg has posted in the product description. You won't find a better value than this thing. Tilt, pan, digital zoom, audio. Put it together with a DLink power-over-ethernet adapter...
  • Cons: The software is a little kludgy to set up, but once it's set, it is rock solid and perfectly reliable.

Charles K., Newegg
19 April 2007
  • Summary: Terrrifc value. Learn the camera, be patient. Learn the IP software, be patient. It wil be worth it. These cameras live in a inhospitible inviornment. Flawless.
  • Pros: I have two DCS 5300's/DCS 70's running 24/7 on the exterior a my Apartment Building in the Carribean, 4,000 miles from my home. I record motion to my desktop at home.

  • Cons: None as far as I'm concerned. I had to update my IP software to improve video. Very simple.

Great Value!!

Anita G., Newegg
7 July 2005
  • Summary: Very nice camera and software. I have set it up as my security system and it works very well at a fraction of the cost that I have been quoted for other systems that did not provide the same functionality. Software is amazing considering the cost (FREE)! Had no problems at all setting it up.

An Awesome Camera with Ro-Bitchen Features!

Not a Cop, Amazon
29 April 2005
  • Summary: This thing is like a little robot eye. I can pan and tilt and digital zoom all from a web browser on my networked PC. The image quality is good, the wireless range is good, the features are quite robust, and it even looks good.

A Top Quality Camera with Awesome Features!

Icy Hot Stuntaz, Amazon
31 March 2005
  • Summary: I like this camera very much. I wish there was more documentation on it though. I want to know what every setting does and how it does it. I want to build programs/PHP scripts that "interact" with this camera and allow for image archiving or other neat little features.

Easy to use and is Stable after Firmware Upgrade

Digits, Amazon
8 September 2004
  • Summary: I just upgraded my camera to the new 1.03 Firmware on D-Link's support site and the camera works better for me. I don't get the random freezes or disconnects anymore. I liked the camera before, but now it's just generally more responsive.
