Could have been a good deal

Gary B., Newegg
9 August 2014
  • 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,...

WIFI connection not working

Kei-Sing W., Newegg
30 July 2014
  • Summary: Updated the firmware to 1.0.4. Will need to get another RMA.
  • Pros: The LAN line works. WPS button WIFI setup is working. I can see the camera in my Netgear WNDR3700 WIFI router as attached wireless device.
  • Cons: But still couldn't get the camera to work in WIFI even with this replacement (the first camera has the same problem).

Do not buy TRENDnet products

A.M, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • 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.

Great Camera

Chris C., Amazon
2 February 2013
  • 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.

Should Have Believed The BAD reviews!

Michael B., Newegg
17 September 2012
  • 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...
  • Pros: None
  • 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!

Not bad for the price, but use different software

OFLKGM, Amazon
8 September 2012
  • 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.

Great Once It Works

joe43wv, Amazon
28 August 2012
  • 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.

works pretty well

Ronald S., Newegg
12 August 2012
  • 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...
