Summary: I had to upgrade the firmware on my router so it would support uPnP. When viewing remotely, be sure to set the refresh interval to something other than "motion", otherwise you will get an error and no connection to your camera. I consider this to be a good purchase.
Pros: Works as advertised. Easy setup. Has been very reliable so far. Very thorough documentation.
Cons: I wish the image quality was a little better. Doesn't do well in low light.

Summary: does everything and more than i thought. panasonic customer service is the best. but i am not a programer, more than 2 calls to panasonic to get up and running. vista has issues with this item and linksys router too. went to a netgear router and worked with no bugs. downside not plug and play.
