Wireless does not work

Christian C., Newegg
1 December 2014
  • Summary: I've had good luck with other Dlink products in the past but based on the amount of fruitless frustration this has put me through, will definately be my last.
  • Pros: Easily searchable via RJ45 wired connection
  • Cons: Spent several hours trying to connect to wireless router. Tried WPS, credentials, and every other way but it would not connect.

D-Link 931L

Gregory J., Newegg
3 November 2014
  • Summary: I've had nothing but good experiences with tech support. Recently I had to call in because I was unable to access the advance settings. I spoke with Rochelle (ID #AR004211). She was great.
  • Pros: For the price, they get the job done and serve the purpose that I bought them. Set up was pretty straight forward with my D-Link router. And since I have a D-Link Home Cloud App-Enabled router I was able to easily set up "mydlink" account" which allows me to view my cameras online. No port forwar...
  • Cons: My con isn't toward the camera. It's the Java software that's needed to view the live video.Slow!!! :-)

Great basic camera

babylyle, Office Depot
14 December 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a good basic camera but for a few more dollars you can get a camera that does so much more. Has great sound but I needed two way audio, night viewing, as well as the ability to pan and tilt. I saw in the description that it has two way audio but I also saw where it says one way audio.
  • Pros: Quiet, Easy to Use, Design, Performance
  • Cons: Expensive

What is not mentioned..

Lawrence M., Newegg
12 December 2013
  • Summary: I am a NEWEGG EGGPERT REVIEWER. I don;t get paid but sometimes I get to keep the product. This one is going to my daughter and my newborn grandson. I am keeping another manufacturers and moving forward to TPZ. They are now under $100. 1 egg off- buggy software.
  • Pros: Read the other reviewers Pro reviews. I agree with them rather than restate the obvious. I submitted a review earlier but it did not post... If your buying just 1 camera, buy this but if it's the start of a camera network...read on...
  • Cons: I spent a week off and on playing with D-VIEW CAM the program that allows you to record and use multiple cameras... PLENTY OF BUGS- rather than go go into it here, go to their website and read the forum on D-VIEW CAM FAQ's and BUG REPORTS. D-LINK may be fixing them as we write but I am writing th...

Neat little camera.

Peter C., Newegg
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Image quality wise it is very similar to my DCS-930L, there is about a 1-2 second delay between the camera and what you see, even on LAN, but that is to be expected. The ability to turn off the green light on the back is nice, I find that it is too bright.
  • Pros: Setup is for the most part plug and play, The camera will automatically setup port forwarding via Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and get a DHCP address when you wire it in via an Ethernet cable. If you don’t have an Ethernet cable, that isn’t an issue either as this device has a WPS button making...
  • Cons: Low visibility in poorly lit areas. If it is focused at a window where light is coming in it washes out the surroundings, losing in detail but still visible. Power cord is rather short so you can’t run it up high on a wall without having to do some modifications to the cable or getting an extensi...

Pretty good little camera!

Vincent n., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • Summary: After performing a factory reset, I captured all the traffic from the DCS-931L to make sure that it wasn't surreptitiously contacting dlink even when not configured for mydlink.com service. Happy to report that it never even attempted to connect. Yay!
  • Pros: Very small camera! About the size of the flip-up portion of a flip-up cell phone. Setup is EXTREMELY easy, even if you don't have a cloud enabled router! As long as your router supports UPnP and DHCP (most do), all you have to do is plug it in to power and the network, download the setup program ...
  • Cons: The flip side to easy setup is that it also leaves you wide open. I looked at what the DCS-931L requested via UPnP, and it forwards both port 80 (HTTP) and 443 (SSL) to itself. While that does make sense, those are the number one and number two stops for anyone who is running a port scanner on th...

Great camera. My cat is weird.

Rikki B., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • Summary: I have it set up in the living room during the day so that while I am at work I can watch my kids play occasionally. Then at night it makes a great baby monitor (as long as there is some light in the room). Overall, I think this is an amazing product for the price!
  • Pros: - Easy to follow setup -Easy to use -D-Link provides great apps and software to use with the camera, very easy to use -Very nice and clear picture -Microphone seems to pick up very clear audio (was pleasantly surprised) -Has a built-in Wi-Fi extender -Has sound and motion detection, so it can (it...
  • Cons: -No night vision. While it works well in low-light, in complete darkness you cannot see anything. -Cannot be panned/tilted remotely (I imagine that feature would cost a lot more though, so no big deal) -Comes with a fairly short power cord (4 ft). I was hoping for longer so I could set it up near...
