Summary: I purchased a few of these cameras to keep an eye on my dogs and the house while away. After reading the reviews, I didn't even bother installing the software. If all you want to do is see what's happening NOW via a web browser, then there's no need for the security software anyway.
Summary: Actually, at this point in time the camera is $89. I bought one a couple of weeks ago and have ordered 3 more. I have several Pansonic BL-C131a cameras and like them a lot. But even at the $240 price they are going for now, I'd rather have more cameras than Pan/Tilt capability.
Summary: This camera WILL work with a Mac, but not right out of the box. Just forget the included CD, not a word about Macs in there. But, there is a blog with very helpful step-by-step notes on how to access the camera's internal software/firmware with a Mac, using any web browser, and to set it so it will...
Summary: Overall the this wireless camera is good, and works with Macs - although it is not supported, once you know the default IP address you can set up the camera with any web browser really, and the PC software is only truly necessary if you have several of those.
Summary: I just installed the camera during the weekend. All the features works. I am using an old Netgear MR814 wireless router. The DSL provider is ATT (original SBC global). Here are some hints to make it work: 1. Your wireless router doesn't need to be on the Linksys approved list.
Summary: It took me a few tries and some online reading, but once you understand what your doing this camera is quite nice. The only issue I'm having is RTSP to my phone (Samsung Instinct M800 thru Sprint). I'm pretty sure it's the phone, not the cam set up.
Summary: This is a good camera. Given that you can access it over the internet (either via a browser or the supplied utility), it's very cool, especially for the price. I recommend it. Support is good too - you get a fairly well-trained live person in just a few minutes of wait time.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive wireless camera in order to watch over my front door throughout the day. This camera fit the description and was a good price, comparatively. I got the camera, hooked it up to my wireless network, and immediately saw the video stream on my computer.
DETAILED overview: firmware- software updates slow, support forum ludicrous, RTSP not as expected, otherwise decent

Summary: If interacting with your router is frightening this is not the product you are looking for. ------------------ included software cd NOT required to setup camera! Amazon shipped this with firmware R24 which is the latest to date so it is also likely the latest hardware.
Summary: Works like a charm. if you know how to set up a router, adding this wireless camera to your home network is a piece of cake. Was pleasantly surprised at how well it works. My wife and I can watch our new puppy from work to make sure she's ok. You can watch video from any web browser.
