Summary: The video is not that great at night anyway. I think for the money you can find a better camera.
Pros: Easy setup, and came with all the items to install. Camera works.
Cons: Would have been a great camera for the garage area if you could see through the lens. After installing the camera and viewing the video found that the lens was no good. If was heavily pitted and scratched on the glass which in turn makes worthless video. Poor quality control from the manufacture,...
Cons: Doesn't have the capability of emailing motion detection via yahoo or google making it virtually worthless or security. Wireless connection died within 3 months of usage. Only works through ethernet connection now. These two items make this camera hardly better than a paperweight.
Summary: installed this camera in a outdoor housing in parking lot over a year ago, it was terrible high contrast in day so bad could not see anything and no pic at night. did not have time to do anything and just left it there useless i upgraded my router yeaterday and decided to check out this camera, been...
Pros: now works great outdoors and nighttime - a simple setting i overlooked-- see other thoughts
Summary: I've seen the same problems that other folks have complained about, where it goes unresponsive or drops off the network periodically when on wireless - but does NOT occur when directly cabled through the rj45 jack.
Pros: For $40, it was a good deal. Straightforward setup, customizable settings for http/https ports, easy to position, works flawlessly with Synology products
Cons: Integrated features work unreliably, can make device unreachable via wireless. IE-only interface - beware non-windows users. Too flaky to pay full price.
Cons: Worked for 5 minutes then only displays white image. Tried reset, different computers, etc. No new firmware available. Camera has newer firmware than what is online. Tech support said they would respond in 48 hrs, did not.
Summary: Bought this as a replacement for a Trendnet TV-IP100W that died after 5 years... thought that cameras might have improved after the last few years, but the TV-IP512WN was a poor replacement for the simplicity of software and great video images of my TV-IP100W which I had set up looking out a window...
Cons: - Fuzzy Video Images... Basically a waste of money and all and more of my monthly phone minutes calling Tech Support... I would NEVER buy this camera again!
Summary: This camera works relatively well, with a few caveats - motion detection being the number one issue. I will buy another one in the future. I expected a slightly wider coverage area - the view is probably around 35ish degrees with the stock lens.
Pros: - Easy to set up - be sure to update firmware asap. - Wireless signal is good (also supports WPA) - built-in software features are good (samba, email, ftp, etc). - dependable (I haven't had problems with resets, etc since I set them up).
Cons: - the lens isn't the best. Has a very shallow DOF under 30 ft and doesn't handle high contrast (shade/sun) very well. - no IR illumination, so doesn't work after dark. - motion detection features not great - Trendnet IpView Pro software doesn't seem to do anything that isn't already built in to t...
