Wishy Washy

Ron J., Newegg

  • Summary: Does not work with Windows 8 explorer.
  • Pros: Compact, wireless, night vision
  • Cons: looses wireless connection at random and has to be powered down and back on to function. not good to use for security camera because it is unreliable. LED lamps on the front are annoying, especially if used close to a window because they reflect back to camera.

  • Summary: I bought 2 of these making me an owner of 4 Edimax cameras. (the other 2 are PTZ versions that are more compact) While I am satisfied with the first two these are not as good even at BF $60 deal.
  • Pros: Cheap Plenty of features
  • Cons: It's huge!! Awful port placement. Power cable attached to the bottom. Forget about low light recording. I knew that when I was buying it. Very narrow field of view Unstable ActiveX for IE. Keeps crashing in IE9

Updated Review

  • Summary: I finally figured it out. At least on my router configuration (WRT54GL v1.1 using Tomato) I had to do some interesting port forwarding. Many ISP's block port 80, so I configured the camera to operate on external port 3333 (you can use whatever, just make it obscure/non-standard).
  • Pros: Finally got it viewable from outside local network.
  • Cons: Took 3 days, the stars needed to align properly, and the proper curse words needed to be uttered several times in succession to make it all work.

Frustrating to own... should have known.

  • Summary: This camera is cheap. And I learned the hard way. You get what you pay for. It's a shame because like I said, it has some great management and security features. I'm open for suggestions. Although it seems like a problem with the camera's firmware or something.
  • Pros: It's wireless, and it has a lot of nice selectable features including motion detection etc.
  • Cons: The wireless is garbage. I connected this camera to TWO wireless routers, used ALL available security encryption types, etc. etc. The camera goes online then offline every few minutes as it tries to switch between the wired LAN connection and the Wireless one... even though there is no LAN cable ...

Gutes Einstiegsmodell

  • Summary: Installation und Einbindung ist sehr einfach. CMOS und Linse sind relativ schlecht. Also perfekt für den, der ein wenig rumspielen will und eine einfache Webcam mal testen will.
