Summary: Even for a super inexpensive camera its just not worth it. The image quality is extremely poor.
Cons: Image quality is very poor. I've installed surveillance systems for many years and picked these up to see if you could actually good a good image at this low a price. The answer is no! The camera states its a PTZ but it doesn't really zoom like a quality PTZ camera does. Its more of a crop then a...
Summary: All around a great camera for the price and I am very happy with it.
Pros: The camera was fairly easy to install. I added it to my synology camera server with little issue. I can use all functions and keep recordings for a long time. WiFi signal is good as well. Price was nice for the functionality.
Cons: The night vision is a little blurry and sometime hard to make out.
Summary: Severe problems with these. If they lose power, the date resets. NTP does not work when this happens. Since the rotating video recording removes the oldest file, it will end up with one file that it writes and deletes. Cannot record to camera's onboard storage and remote server at the same time.
Summary: Advertisement says, zoom. This is not a true PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) camera, there is no zoom optical or digital. All that aside this is a pretty good toy pans and tilts quickly. Not a bad picture.
Has worked well outdoors under a jar for over a year now

Summary: I know this is an indoor camera, but I went to Wal-Mart and bought a clear acrylic jar with a watertight snap-down lid, inverted that on top of the camera, closed the whole thing up relatively tightly, and stuck it on a pole out in front of my beehives 150 miles out in the country on my ranch, ran a...
Summary: I've had two of these cameras running 24/7 for over a year, with both recording video at its highest resolution to the same network shared drive without any real problems. I also have the e-mail motion dectection notification enabled on the cameras at the same time.
Pros: Higer resolution than most. Remotely controllable Pan-n-Tilt capability through client software. Automatic IR for night time use. Can record to network share. Has e-mail notificaion for motion detection. Has good control of masking for motion detection. Works off of POE when used with appropriate...
Cons: The only problem I've run into so far is that when the camera is used in a hot environment (over 95 degrees F), the image can develop noise or fail. Once at a lower temperature however, the camera returned to normal. The only other comment I have is that the audio microphone is not super sensitiv...
Summary: I am going to send back because of the way it pans.
Pros: Great image quality. good low light.
Cons: I got windows 8 and camera does not pan far with one push of button. In order to turn 120* you must push button many times, it turns about 15* per push. Then u must push again to go only another 15*. Takes to long to pan. My other cameras pan until you let go of button this one does not.
Summary: Works great and with the higher resolution, there are no lag even when running on a wireless connection. The night time view is a lot clearer than the Linksys that I also have. The only complaint I have is when it is panning or tilting it is quite loud and not very smooth.
Pros: Wireless connection really reliable, Love the quality
Cons: Pan/tilt is pretty loud, The patrol option only does one loop, I was hoping it would be continuous
Summary: Camera worked fine when initially using the included 12v adapter to configure at my desk, but 2 of them failed when connecting to my PoE switch. Once connected to the switch they probably fried an internal component and wouldn't work even with the 12v adapter.
Summary: I received both the PoE and Wireless N (day/night) cameras to test. I'll start by saying that they both preformed very well. The PoE seemed to work just a bit better (I tried varies routers to test compatibility all seem to work the same).
