Good camera but poor service

Summary: I've actually had this camera since 2011, so I have quite a bit of experience with it. The camera itself is very high quality. I have had it outdoors for almost two years now, and it has taken the weather like a champ. It has never failed me. That said, I have mixed emotions about this product. My main complaints are regarding Logitech's software and service. Several of its remote features require an $80/year "premium" service fee, which I think is ridiculous.
Summary: I have had the master system outdoor camera for about one year now and it has worked very well. I have been reading about some of the problems with unreliability in some of the other reviews. My advice to them is get a back up battery power device for computers and hook up your modem and your computer to it. This has solved all my reliability problems.
Summary: I really like this system. I have been using the Vue wireless cameras, which are very handy because of the ease of placement and absolute independence of wiring (they use batteries), but the picture quality is not great. It IS with the 700e! Very clear and vibrant. I even like the night vision, which just appears as a black/white negative, but still good picture quality.
Summary: The set up of the Logitech 750e was very easy as long as you follow the basic steps and dont try to skip anything. It was pretty much plug and play setup and It included the inline Ethernet adapters so all you had to do was plug one into a wall socket near your router, plug it into the router, plug to other adapter into a wall socket someplace around where you would want surveillance, then plug the camera in.
Summary: For the money invested, this system has done an excellent job, minor website outages, and very minor problems. It would be nice if you could turn on your computer from their website, because sometimes their is a power outage that knocks my computer offline. I go through logmein to get computer back on when I am away from my home, but I am still very happy with the service and workings of these cameras.
Summary: I've Been setting these camera up for all the business that I've handle. They have the best resolution of any camera that I've use. The setup is dead simple, but they're prone to losing signal. I've have to occasionally unplug them and plug them in whenever there's a power surge or thunder storm.
Good but could be so much better, Mac support poor

Summary: The physical build quality and performance of this device are excellent. The video image is very sharp and responsive. The Powerline Networking functionality works surprisingly well, and makes it very convenient to locate the camera anywhere there's nearby access to an electrical outlet. My biggest criticism is Logitech's horrible support for Mac OS X. A Windows PC is REQUIRED for initial setup and configuration.
Summary: Purchased this item along with add-on camera, maybe another later. Understanding the use of household electrical wiring for flawless camera operation is pivotal. Getting them wired on the same circuit made hardware setup a snap. However, the software was difficult for a noob like me. It ran okay and found the cameras just fine, but the user interface and Logitech website takes some patience, trial and error to achieve intended results. No interaction.
Summary: First off, I wanted a camera to keep inside my apartment because I am one of those rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it people. I also have no fantastic networking or computer skills. That being said: took out camera and followed the instructions to a T. Camera did not work and received "powerline network adapter problem" and was not able to continue.

Summary: I haven't read any of the other reviews here - The following is my appraisal of the product after using it over a month now at a remote location, together with two 700e outdoor remotes. This is not a full product review; it's just a summary of some good and bad points that I have found. Overall I am quite pleased, but with some reservations. GOOD THINGS: * Reliable, so far.
