good item so far

k b., Newegg

  • Pros: good physical size, good picture quality, smartphone app works good.
  • Cons: hard to find what you need on the Dlink website. Not sure why it needs to update Java everytime you access camera from a pc....Initial setup required lots of updates. Wireless setup not easy and not for a novice. Dlink site says latest firmware is 1.08 but running 1.09?

  • Summary: Got this to monitor the front door/entry of my business so people in the back could see if someone came in and no one was there to help them. product works great but the interface times out and is not very user friendly.

  • Summary: this camera failed from overheating I suspect. got an RMA from Dlink to return at my cost for shipping. Received the replacement unit from Dlink and could not perform setup on the camera. have given up trying to get dlink technical support on the line to help me troubleshoot the replacement camera.

Camera OK, Software Sucks

Robert B., Newegg
28 August 2013
  • Pros: I have D-Link Router which works well so I bought this camera to go with it as I wanted a wireless system. I didn't realize that the internet must be used to see the picture from this ethernet camera. I assumed wrongly that a camera, router, computer internal system could be set up... but no. See...
  • Cons: 1. Monitoring software works well, recording software does not work at all.

  • Excerpt: I originally had an Axis camera... B&H turned me onto these cameras from Dlink... they do have a lot of features that are nice, the Dlink website and App for them are nice... The free App [*]is superior to the inexpensive paid one....The complaint I have about the cameras is twofold...

DVR Software not Mac or Windows 8 compatible

MATTHEW S., Newegg
3 August 2013
  • Pros: After getting it set up, the camera seems to work pretty good. I thought that this model was advertised as not having sound, but to my surprise, my 930L does transmit sound along with the video.
  • Cons: This is one of those manufactures that has some fine print. I read on the box that the unit is compatible with Mac OSX, but I didn't catch the footnote that the software is not. It took a very long time for me to get the camera to work in OSX, as you cannot have the latest version of Java 7 runni...

Item works well, but tech support/customer service poor

MR M., Newegg
2 July 2013
  • Summary: So far this is a day camera only, so if you using it for security and the room is dark, you will not be able to see anything.
  • Pros: Product as it was described, it works well and it was easy to setup.
  • Cons: The tech support and customer service leaves a little to be desired. Nowhere on the package/website states if this camera can see in IR light. The reasons is that I want to use an external IR light to view a larger area than the other cameras that Dlink sells with the IR light built-in, they have...

Weak signal. Needs a antenna.

Steven C., Newegg
28 March 2013
  • Summary: Other thoughts go here.
  • Pros: Features are great on this camera. Price was awesome at $39.99 shell shocker. Emails 6 pictures on motion detection. 3 frames prior to detection and 3 frames after and it works. Its fast. Video on iphone is OK if you keep the resolution and frame rate down. Setup is so easy its ridiculous. My pet...
  • Cons: The range of use is BAD!!!!! DUH!DUH! DUH! DUUUUH! Had this running in the same room as my ATT router. Worked perfectly. Moved it to the next room and the signal dropped like a rock. Really! it made a sound hitting the ground. Keep it in the same room as the router until DLINK decides to put a an...
