OK image, but stable

Mark B., Newegg
8 May 2010
  • Summary: Bottom line...good stable camera, the image is sharp and has good color, but is a little grainy. Trendnet TV-IP100 & 410 have much better image quality. I bought these cameras on sale at $70 and at that price I think it is an excellent product, no complaints..
  • Pros: Works with ZoneMinder Admin Interface accessible through IE and Firefox
  • Cons: Image is grainy Comes Stock with narrow angle lens, but I guess some people might like that

Hard to set up

corey d., Newegg
10 November 2008
  • Summary: make sure you have a static IP address, most people have a dynamic IP and you can't get to the online setup page.
  • Pros: was on sale for $69 and free shipping.
  • Cons: you must have a static IP adress and some good understanding of network setup. there is no good step by step instructions on how to set up the camera, instructions are very vague.

Careful, some models unusable

Steven W., Newegg
6 August 2008
  • Pros: pretty good for the price, when it works
  • Cons: I ordered 5 of these cameras from Newegg, four of which were defective. They would not accept any changes to the configuration. Every time they rebooted, they went to factory defaults! TrendNet technical support said there was a problem with certain models, and they have to be replaced. 4 out of ...

Big, slow, low image quality

Fedor K., Newegg
6 April 2008
  • Summary: If you need a great and cheap IP camera, go for Linksys WVC54GCA (not WVC54GC). I bought mine for $99.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Big. slow, low image quality, proprietary interface. I write my own software that works with a wide range of IP cameras. First of all, the image quality is low and is very similar to that by another low-quality camera D-Link DCS-900. While other manufacturers use HTTP servers to feed MJPEG to the...

not bad but no motion video over internet!

Anonymous, Newegg
25 February 2008
  • Summary: Setup was easy enough. Once configured I was sending 640x480 res pics at 25 fps to my FTP server so I could view the camera from anywhere with an internet connection (I travel a lot!). The result is NOT streaming video, but individual .JPEG files you can open one at a time to view.
  • Pros: Picture quality is not bad. In contrast to other reviews mine did come with mounting bracket and camera looks quite nice. Setup was easy enough using web interface.
  • Cons: Alerts do not work for me because you need IPView software to be constantly running! There is no streaming video support over the internet!!!!

Good but work at it

Mark E., Newegg
15 February 2008
  • Pros: Cameras do work good right out of the box, but you need to really play with the software to learn your way around.
  • Cons: Camera angle is not very good for small wide rooms, you can buy wide angle lenes for them.
