bought it for 20 bucks new on amazon. no worth a dollar more

Morgan408, Amazon

  • Summary: audio has echo and distortion. the lense is a manual so you can only focus on one object, everything else is blurry if its not within the focused area. its not the most attractive one on the market, i paid $30 shipped (new) and for that price its worth it, but sold it a few days later regardless.

A few things you need to know about this unit

the optimizer, Amazon
20 February 2012
  • Summary: I spent hours trying configuring unit by myself then I gave in and called the company's tech. There was nothing that made sense. I purchased 2 of these cameras thinking that I could work through whatever installation issues. It could be it's just the particular cameras/software that are faulty. I am asking for a refund and will go with another brand wireless internet camera.

Be careful

crking99, Ebay

  • Summary: I made the silly assumption that the WVC54G / WVC54GC / and the WVC54GCA were essentially the same camera. Boy was I wrong. The WVC54GC lacks the resolution and the ability to FTP pitcures like the WVC54GCA. Additionally it lacks the ability to use WPA2 although this may not be a big issue.

You can do better for about the same price

  • Summary: I have 2 of these and suggested it to my brother. Since then I have purchased 3 Foscam wireless/IR/2-way Audio with Tilt/Pan and love them. They are easy to set up and so versatile. You can also see them on your droid phone for free and unfortunately there is not a way to do this with this particular linksys model.

Linksys Wireless-G WVC54GC Network Camera

firecakedad, Ebay
9 January 2010
  • Summary: Setup of camera was relatively easy. The recording software that came with it was cumbersome and flaky. It would often lock up when trying to playback recordings. If you need reliable recording and playback, this is not the camera you want. Real time viewing via local lan was reliable for the most part. I was also able to set it up so I can view it through the internet while I was away from home.

Linksys Wireless-G WVC54GC Network Camera

fshave, Ebay
9 December 2009
  • Summary: Camera works very will on Wifi/G network, unfortunately I bought it for my baby's room to look at her at night and it does the job poorly, actually not at all. I thought that I had researched to camera thourghly but did not research the specs for night vision. My own fault.

OK for the money if you consider the limitations

VermontGuy, Amazon
23 June 2006
  • Summary: As other reviewers have noted, this camera has miserable low-light performance and fairly low resolution. But if you're looking for a low-light, high-res security camera with a built-in Web server, you'd better be ready to spend more than $100. For my purposes--daylight and porchlight monitoring of our front and back doors during vacations and being able to see who's ringing the doorbell when working in my attic office, this camera functions just fine.

Bigger than it looks.

N. Schweitzer, Amazon
12 March 2006
  • Summary: The image quality of this camera isn't great, and as the other reviewer states, it needs lots of light. The resolution of the video is fairly poor, comparable to a very cheap 4-year-old webcam. If you need to see detail in the image (e.g. for certain security-camera purposes), then it will not work. Another thing to note is that this camera is much bigger than it looks--it is about the size of your hand.

Video Quality is poor but it serves the purpose

Robert F. Muller Jr., Amazon
7 March 2006
  • Summary: I found the camera to be easy to set up and get working both wired and wirelessly contrary to some of the reviews. The only complaint is the video quality which is commonly outlined in the reviews. If all you are doing is setting up a security camera for periodic check in's like I am doing with our second home, this camera works great. If your goal is high quality video from a remote location, then you will hate this camera.
