Best feature set for price

Michael Silva, Amazon
9 August 2011
  • Summary: I have used this camera for about a month and love it. It records flawlessly to a NAS (no need to leave a computer on) records only on motion and has very good video quality. I have set up a dynamic DNS (DynDNS) service to remotely monitor the camera from my Android phone and from any computer. I am by no means a networking guru, but have a basic working knowledge of networks and ip addresses.

Not bad for the price, but use different software

KGMSML, Amazon

  • Summary: I have six of these cameras, and although they're not my best cameras, they do their job well. Like many people have stated, these don't have an IR cut filter, so sometimes the grass will be white, anything black will be purple, etc. My cameras didn't have this problem until after a few months of usage, and only three of the six do it.

Do not buy TRENDnet products

  • Summary: This camera sucks! big time. I have to power it off and power back on almost everyday otherwise it just freezes and stops taking pictures. I have a D-link DCS-930L which is 1/4 the price of this one and it is doing a much better job than this over priced camera. in General I have never had a good experience with this brand...stay away!.

Great Camera

Chris C., Amazon
18 March 2011
  • Summary: This was the second camera I bought of this model, after having one for a year and needing another one. The camera works great. I have it outdoors, mounted up under the eaves. I bought a weatherproof enclosure for it, and have had no weather related problems with it at all. I use it in wireless mode, and have not had any connectivity problems.

Great Once It Works

joe43wv, Amazon

  • Summary: The Trendnet camera is a great camera for anyone who wants to record wireless. The only issue I had was when I used it outside. Whenever I tried using it outside all I got was a white screen. A firmware upgrade from Trendnet fixed this but other than that it's worked great. If it wasn't for the firmware issue this would have gotten a 5 out of 5 rating.

Don't use outdoors.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: My grass looks purple and the product keeps getting disconnected from the Trendnet provided software. I have hardwired this camera due to the excessive amount of additional products that are needed to put this camera in an enclosure outside.

Hardware is good, software if horrible

  • Summary: The camera does everything I needed it to, but the SecureView software is AWFUL. In my frustration I began searching for alternatives and found this free open source alternative that does everything SecureView promises, but this software actually delivers! You can get the software at: [...] Check it out, I had it up and doing motion detect recording in about 5 minutes. I never got that working with SecureView.

Nor user friendly

A. Gaiser "aveylou", Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I ordered this webcam to use in my business and publish to my website. It was very difficult to set up. I got the camera working, but then I had to call the company tech support to get help transferring to my website. I was on the phone for over one hour, I got tired and exhausted and knew I would never figure it out if left to my own devices when and if I ever got tech support to get me up and running. I sent the product back. I expect a full refund to my credit card.

Poor documentation, poor software, false advertising

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 January 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this IP Camera to replace a Trendnet Internet Camera that a customer of mine had been using for several years. The old camera had many drawbacks, but it was cheap and did the job. The application is allowing members at a tennis club to monitor the courts to see if they are dry or wet and if all the courts are in use. Note that I am a very technical person, so this should have been a 10 minute install.

Poor quality

D. Veeck, Amazon
4 January 2010
  • Summary: Picture quality on this camera is terrible. Greens are purple-white and the picture is very fuzzy even after focusing the lense. I had to send the camera back to Trendnet for replacement. The first time, the camera failed after a couple of days as it would display only a white screen with outlines of objects. On the replacment camera, the colors were so bad it looks like a cartoon picture.
