Bad, just like the other reviews say

Preston D., Newegg
16 January 2009
  • Summary: Trust the other reviews and don't waste your money on the DCS-950G.
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: Just like other reviews have said, this is a truly bad product. Unit runs very hot and locks up after just a few minutes. Heat seems to be the issue. I placed the camera out side to test the overheating theory (Temp 32 F), and it would work for about an hour. Inside at normal room temp it would l...

Not user freindly

Zachary H., Newegg
21 September 2008
  • Pros: Good resolution, reasonable low light quality
  • Cons: Poor software, completely useless as a security camera, randomly stops operating without notice, tends to be non operational for days before we notice, internet explorer is the only web interface, for an average user this was difficult to operate and the software is basically useless.

No more from Dlink

Andrew S., Newegg
3 September 2008
  • Summary: In the past Dlink had manufactured solid products. This is not the case any more. This camera joins a long list of recent Dlink purchases that have failed months after purchase. I will not buy another Dlink product.
  • Pros: Motion detection, wireless, worked well when it worked.
  • Cons: I have had to RMA 3 of these cameras because they just stopped working. 1 year warranty isn't enough. The unit runs very hot which is probably why they are so failure prone. Dlink technical support is among the worst in the world.

I was wrong

Brant R., Newegg
28 February 2008
  • Summary: I bought two of these to setup in my house for monitoring the doors. After a week of trying to configure these things wirelessly and having it only connect at times off and on I decided I might as well just hard wire them with ethernet cable to bypass any wireless issues.
  • Pros: A product that is faulty from the manufacturer has no pro's.
  • Cons: I read all the bad reviews online (they are everywhere, not just NewEgg) but I still decided to try these out because of the price range and listed features. Sometimes a lot of "problems" people have with things are out of their own misunderstanding of the product or inability to set things up co...

Works fine

Anonymous, Newegg
24 November 2007
  • Summary: I haven't ran this camera through that much testing but I have set it up in 3 different locations with 3 different Belkin routers and it hasn't missed a beat. It's worked fine every time I plugged it in.
  • Pros: Good video. No connection problems with Belkin router. Night shot works well.
  • Cons: Works with Internet Explorer only. I have had video problems at 640x480, even on a LAN.

Incredibly, the second camera is not working after buying also! ! !

Ian Shtecel, Amazon
9 September 2007
  • Summary: I do not believe after buying a month ago from Target that this camera simple not working and bought again Amazon now and again it is not working. Problems with the video, a shorter easier to say-not works 90% of functionality.

Buggy, horrible support

JB, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: The software is a bit buggy and dealing with d-link support is something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. The motion detection alarm does not work in the ipview se program, and dlink support was WAY less than helpful. I think they know it is a bug but refuse to admit it.
