Great deal, does what it's supposed to

Adam M., Newegg
23 July 2009
  • Summary: Cannot get better for the price. Looked for several options, was hesitant when read some reviews, fortunately some bad ratings that had do to with misconfiguration of the home network.
  • Pros: - Solid picture quality in the daylight,
  • Cons: - sound jitters, but I'm still able to hear what's going on. This is not supposed to be a HD solution, keep in mind,

Really Nice Camera for the Price

Anonymous, Newegg
13 February 2009
  • Summary: I've been looking at these various camera systems for a while now. I received a WVC200 as a gift, but I could never get it to work wirelessly. This camera, no problem. For the price, you can't beat it. I bought it for fun mainly, but I like being able to see when the mail man, pizza guy or my ex- is outside, from my home office in the basement. My goal is to be able to view them from work.
  • Pros: Good picture. Very easy set-up. Reasonably good range (for the price). So far, holds the signal very well.
  • Cons: It would be nice if I could get the software to work with my wired WVC200 so that I could view them together, but I can't. The WVC54 software doesn't see it.

terrific product

W S., Newegg
30 December 2008
  • Summary: Well I bought this last week and now I see newegg selling a WVC5GCC model?? I hope the only difference is the silver color, no mention of this model at Linksys site. Oh, and it is possible to have multiple cameras using the same tzo.com account because this cam allows specification of port, so cool.
  • Pros: Pros? Well it works right out of the box!!! That is by far the easist tech experience I've had in a long time. The CD has a wizard and if you follow it, the thing just works like a champ. I was streaming VDO to my cell phone in literally minutes - it was amazing!! motion detection and email ability is solid too, again this thing just works. Some people have mentioned that it drops wireless connections but it hasn't for me. I let it run for about 12 hours without issue...
  • Cons: There are no instructions about port forwarding, but if you google it you will find the answers you need. Also it is hard-wired apparently to use TZO.com, but the wizard does guide you thru a 1-year free trial. Its blue LED light stays on and is BRIGHT so for a security purpose I needed to cover the light with black electrical tape.

Impressive Price/Performance

Angelo B., Newegg
6 December 2008
  • Summary: I believe this was the best price (~$80) for a camera with motion-capture and audio support. One thing that is not clear in the "marketing" materials is that the built in webserver will happily serve video out to Firefox. You do *not* need Internet Explorer to watch video. I am using Firefox 3 on Windows and Fedora to watch video just fine.
  • Pros: Motion capture, audio, Firefox support (for watching video), lots of configuration options. Much more than I expected for the price.
  • Cons: Could not configure wireless WEP key properly through the windows "Setup Wizard" software. I ended up having to use the web interface directly to get my WEP key assigned. Not a big deal, but could confuse a novice.

Camara Wireless-G Linksys Facil de utilizar y muchas funciones

Ciao
19 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Empece comprando una sola, y ya voy 7! La verdad es que por el precio que tiene, creo que es de las camaras mas completas. La instalacion con el Cd de fabrica demora como 15min, la conectas, metes el cd, autorun, aparece la camara, configuras cuatro pasos, y listo ya la puedes poner en cualquier sitio.
  • Pros: Facil instalacion, buenas funciones, video en movil, precio
  • Cons: El sonido es su mayor desventaja, no es muy claro

  • Summary: Très bonne qualité vidéo en MJPEG et MPEG 4. Les couleurs sont belles et fidèlement reproduites. Stabilité du serveur web qui est facilement et toujoursaccessible. Le logiciel de gestion en local est également très réactif et supporte jusqu'à 9 caméras. Cette caméra est compatible avec les NAS synology. On peut en avoir plusieurs pour surveiller sa maison.
  • Pros: Excellent rapport - qualité prix
  • Cons: Aucune mise à jour du logiciel ou du firmware, mais pas vraiment nécessaire .
