Summary: The camera I got was refurbished. It was complete and works fine but was NOT in the original packaging. Paper in the box said it was refurbished. The product description did not show it was refurbished.
Cons: As a certified Video Pro, I can assure you this camera is OLD technology. It may look like a good possibility but its not. the 2MP claim is deceptive, it's a 4:3 output. Color detection in even a minor light is lost, and it flips to B/W. Zoom was extremely poor and either the unit I got was bad o...
Excerpt: I have had the camera for about 10 days now. Pros ==== 1) The software is much more stable then my earlier Foscam camera. The Foscam camera used to hang or die every couple of days and needed a restart. SO far the Toshiba has been going fine without any reboot.
Summary: I was actualy looking for optical zoom. If a camera can do PTZ, it NEEDS to have optical zoom. Dont buy it if you want to see live clarity. This one is just for point-and-record. Forget about the zoom, its digital, so its the same thing like moving your face closer to the monitor.
Summary: For what you pay the picture quality is very poor. I had a 200 with twice the quality and half the lens size do much better. I was on the fence about this cam bought it returned it the same day I revived it.
Summary: HD Technology is pricey but if you must have it this is a good option. Keep in mind it doesn't have optical zoom so don't expect great zoom capability. It also doesn't have a heater but this camera is small enough to mount inside a window of a heated room.
Pros: This is an update to my previous review. This camera does work with geovision software even though they say it doesn't. You can purchase a dongle from a geovision reseller and install it utilizing rtsp in the configuration. This method only allows you to view and record NOT to manage it with ptz ...
Cons: Couple of these cameras got hot on me but they still work fine & never crashed. The power plug was also hot but it's drawing exact power company claimed.
Summary: I've owned an IK-WB11A purchased in 2004. Was hoping Toshiba had made improvements on a good but showing its age design. Nope, Toshiba basically broke, ruined, or eliminated certain key features.
Pros: Takes high resolution still pictures and video. The pan and tilt does work well. Ceiling mount was easy enough if not limited in design.
Cons: Very confusing and buggy firmware last updated in late 2010. Internet Explorer with an activex plug-in is really the only way to use the camera. But even then many menu and dropdown features aren't displayed correctly on IE9 or IE10. Was unable to edit or delete certain media and server settings ...
