Product discontinued-no support available, do not buy

WBH, Amazon
12 July 2009
  • Summary: Mine arrived, tried to set it up, wouldn't work, called support, product is discontinued, no support available. Asking for a refund is getting me a run-around, will probably have to enter a claim soon.

cheap camera

Peter Shipley, Amazon
27 February 2009
  • Summary: cheap camera, does what is says not much more.... a good toy, I would not recommend it for any real security purposes ( it would make a ok baby monitor although it does not work well in low light ) it seems to run the same software (& firmware) as the Hawking NETWORK CAMERA 11M WIRELESS ( NC320W )

DCS 900 G Webcam

Chris R, Amazon
9 January 2008
  • Summary: I have been using this new G series DCS 900 for about three months; it is is much better than the older B series cameras on my network. This one runs much cooler, has never "locked-up" and has the option that it can be viewed with or without a password (password still required to access internal settings). A greatly improved and much more robust product.

Good enough to do the job

J. Rice, Amazon
20 November 2007
  • Summary: First of all... for $100, this is a good camera. Second, plenty of light near the camera lense (not necessary the subject) gives you the best picture. Third, though not unique to this camera, be aware that any internet camera might be difficult to setup because your ISP may block the needed port. Good luck!

Hard to set-up and not Mac-compatible

Damon Katz, Amazon
14 November 2007
  • Summary: Pro: good picture for price, nice mounting hardware included. Con: hard to set-up, bad manual, not Mac-compatible. These are *not* Mac-compatible except insofar as "compatible" means you can use your Mac to access the internet. They *require* a PC to set-up and a PC to run the included management software. Also, the instructions are absolutely terrible.

Mac workaround

F. J. Lakner, Amazon
30 October 2007
  • Summary: Mac users: of course the included setup wizard and management software are useless as they are written for Windows. However, after some bumbling about, I managed to get the DCS-G900 up and running on my eMac running MacOS 10.3.9. I happen to have a D-Link DI-524 wireless router for my network (not that it probably matters much) and simply plugged the camera into an open ethernet port.

Great results with a networking expert

Jan W. Rubsam, Amazon
29 September 2007
  • Summary: This camera can cause frustrations when one is not educated enough about IP settings, Gateway, and many other technicalities, including ISP service requirements to be able to program the camera for browser viewing and knowing how to "ping" your Windows XP system to track the wireless progress of settings made. I gave up, and found a friend in the very NETWORKING profession.

Bad experience x2

Wayne, Amazon
28 September 2007
  • Summary: I purchased two of these and both were defective. Software install was easy and instructions were simple but the camera could not be found by the either of my PCs with cable direct to the PC or through my router. The unit appeared to work with lights showing LAN connect but the software could not find the camera. The service number answered quickly but could not help and eventually cut me off.
