Summary: Only issue is the zoom, it is not very useful. The zoom is digital and the native picture resolution is not good enough to support that type of zoom. It's sort of expected for the price so I have no real complaints
i wish it had auto focus, you should buy one that has auto focus

Summary: i use this camera to view my fish tanks while i am out of town, it works well, except the focus has to be done manually, so i don't get as sharp of an image as i would hope, that is the only reason i took a star off, it has been dependable, night vissons cool, the app is not bad, easy to access.
Summary: I did like the product but I think that is not the best for the money. I'm having issues recording with sound, sending audio to the camera and integrating with my Qnap storage. The resolution isn't HD and even connected in Wireless N I don't see a smooth video.
Summary: I have owned several of these cameras for over two years. I can monitor the cameras on my computer at home and on my smartphone away but, I have never been able to understand how to set up the e-mail notification program for motion alerts or to record on my computer on a schedule.
Summary: I don't know what the beef is with the "experienced" app builder. I am a reasonably handy person with no prior experience, and I muddled through. If you want plug and play, I haven't heard of a solution with this functionality in this price range. All cameras in this category have setup issues.
Summary: I have no idea why the only review on this cameras is from an experienced egghead kinda guy and he hates it. I have a fair amount of experience myself not a lot in networking but I do build my own computers and have done so for many years now.
Summary: I use this camera to watch my driveway. It's easy to setup and has a pretty good left to right pan. I wish it would pan down a little more but the base is kind of big. I replaced some old D-link ip cameras with this camera. The D-link cameras were way easier to focus.
Summary: Trendnet includes instructions for setting up the cam but nothing about interfacing it with your router so you can see it on the Internet. I had to do a search on the Internet to learn about Port Forwarding in order to make it work. Overall a good purchase.
