Summary: Purchased this camera Feb 2011, after less than 3 years it went dead, while it was working it was "OK" but for the money (I paid over $300) it simply was not worth it as there are so many other cameras on the market.
Summary: First camera never worked. Just a blinking amber light (about 1 per second). Second camera worked for a few minutes, then back to the same blinking amber light problem. I'm not going to try for a third! On the other hand, Amazon made returns easy.
Summary: I had been looking at cameras for a few months since my car was stolen out of my driveway. I decided to go with a network camera and the BL-C140A was my choice. I mounted it over my garage. The view was fine out into the street. The real time view works well from my Win7 browser.
Good daylight image, rich user interface, no SSL email support

Summary: I've had this camera, and a BL-C210A (Indoor PTZ model) setup for about a week now and overall I'm happy with the image and user interface. Multiple camera setup was a bit of bear. I never did get Viewnetcam.com working for me, but I believe that it will work.
Summary: This is by far the cheapest outdoor IP camera out there that does power-over-ethernet (POE). As a plus, it include its own POE injector, saving an additional fifty dollars on buying one separately. So far it works well, except the image gets very noisy in the dark.
Summary: This was my first network camera to set up surveillance at my home/shop area. DUring the day time the picture is great. At night, I had to help it a little by installing a dual flood quartz security light system about 3 feet from it. This combination works pretty well.
Summary: Running at 14,000 ft. for 5 months in cold and snow as webcam, still going strong. POE is included but proprietary, still not a problem. Make sure you get outdoor Cat5 cable as I didn't and it might make a difference over time. I have another Pany (PTZ with sound- about $250 plus POE inj.
Pros: Good webcam; POE included; IP based; good daylight performance; rugged through high winds and cold weather
Cons: Not highest resolution (640x480 max); POE is proprietary
