edimax ic-7010ptn

Linsey K., Newegg
19 March 2013
  • Summary: From the customer service I received, I would probably not recommend buying an Edimax product.
  • Pros: When I first got the camera, it worked great for 3 months.
  • Cons: I made the mistake of trying to update the firmware. After the upgrade, it would no longer work wirelessly and it would only work for a short time using an ethernet connection. I contacted Edimax with no response. I decided to check and see if there were any new firmware updates. There are so I d...

False advertising

Gregory R., Newegg
18 June 2012
  • Summary: I wish I had not wasted $150 on this camera
  • Pros: Looks cool
  • Cons: Advertised that it could be viewed and controlled via android smartphone but it never worked. I tried third party apps with no luck either. If I wanted to pay for a static IP address it might have worked. Anyway its moot now, it died after only 4 months and is apparently a paper weight now.

You won't be satisfied

James C., Newegg
3 March 2012
  • Summary: Picture quality is unbelievably poor - you will not be satisfied. I have experience with a couple other similar cameras, and while these are all relatively low picture quality, the Edimax is noticeably unacceptable.
  • Pros: * "mechanical" features - pan/tilt performance was good * voice capabilities, local recording on DHCP * Camera software (accessible by LAN) - generally intuitive and complete, reasonable options, h264 compression capability.
  • Cons: * Picture quality - VERY poor. Color is essentially B/W with shades of pink (with IR on - it is B/W as would be expected). Mfgr basically confirms that this is inherent in the design of low-cost video with IR capabilities. * Picture quality - clarity is very poor. Don't think you're going to get ...

Poor quality color and noisy image

TIMothy M., Newegg
11 February 2012
  • Summary: I am returning it for a refund.
  • Pros: I can return it for a refund.
  • Cons: I purchased this thinking the image quality would be superior due to the higher resolution but the camera has terrible color balance and the image is very noisy due to the software cranking up the gain on the camera in order to attempt to improve lower light image. This results in a very poor qua...

User Review

Daniel G., Newegg
2 January 2012
  • Summary: I have four other IP camera's and none lose connections when wired. I wouldn't purchase another camera from this manufacturer.
  • Pros: Have a similar model, and it had great video quality.
  • Cons: As another poster mentioned, even when connected via ethernet, connections can easily be lost. Mine lost a connection during a firmware update and is now useless.

Stay away for now

Daniel K., Newegg
4 April 2011
  • Summary: So, great camera, but this bug in the firmware making it almost useless right now.
  • Pros: I bought two of these and posted first review that was positive, but at this point I cannot recommend the product. see Cons
  • Cons: Buggy firmware! I am not going to nit pick on little things like misspelling the main bug with the cameras is that they become unresponsive after a few days of use and to resolve that you need power cycle it. You can ping the camera and detect it the IP Admin tool, but you will not be able to acc...

  • Summary: Die Kameras (ich hatte drei Stück gekauft) sind ALLE defekt und innerhalb von 15 Monaten ausgefallen! Da steckt ein System- oder Produktionsfehler hinter, anders ist das nicht zu erklären.

Eigentlich sollte es was Besseres sein!

Hieronymus, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: Nachdem ich letztes Jahr eine einfache Pan-Tilt Kamera mit 0,3 MPi im Einsatz hatte, sollte es dieses Jahr noch zusätzlich was Besseres sein. Mit 1,3 MPi erhoffte ich einen erheblichen Qualitätsprung.
