Barely tolerable- but usable if you must

RoMeR, Amazon
21 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this way back when it was $250. I wish I would have sprung the little extra for the DLink. But now I see it's only $120. Still borderline pricey for this clunky unit. Very difficult to get up and running. And VERY sluggish on the controls and video is sporadically laggy. I still use it a lot and deal with it, as I have a need for it and no money to upgrade. Bottom line- there are better so don't get this one.

Ok for the price - Update: Not worth purchasing

Adam Caron, Amazon
9 March 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this camera after having owned the TV-IP110W (an excellent camera for the price, also reviewed by me elsewhere.) I went into it expecting it to be a pan/tilt version of the same unit. I discovered after the fact, which I would have learned had I read other reviews before buying it, that despite having a higher model number, it is actually an older camera with older technology.

camera works well, good value

V. Miner, Amazon
3 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this model camera a few years ago, and have just bought another. I'm not an IT person, but with the help of the Users Guide, and a very helpful tech support person, it's working well. The camera comes with a Quick Start Guide, but there is additional documentation available from the Trendnet web site - the Users Guide, FAQs and one on remote web access, all as pdf docs. It's worth taking the time to read everything and understand the steps to get it working.

Never got it and no reply from vender.

Billie C. Whatley, Amazon
24 May 2009
  • Summary: I have never recieved the item and after several emails to the company, no one has bothered to reply to my emails, I think it is a bogus company and Amazon is fronting for them, Amazon has not helped me either. I have no trust in either. I am in the process of legal action and or criminal actions against both.

If you're a Mac user, stay awaw

L. Kline "spaceman03", Amazon
26 January 2009
  • Summary: I had tried to get this to work, setting it up with my Mac. I was able to get it to speak with each other minimally, but it never went through the full setup. I tried calling customer service numerous times, no one would pick up. I finally got someone who told me that someone would call me back, and I never heard from them. They're most often closed when I call, or it goes to a message. It's sitting back in the box, useless. Don't buy this.

Not what I thought.....Still an average wireless camera

JAH1JAH1, Amazon
21 October 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera for the pan/tilt feature, but I found out that it does not work with well with Vista. I also thought the video would be as good as the TV-IP110W fixed wireless camera, but it is not. I am an IT guy and I have used several cameras and this is one of the worst I have ever used. I do wish Trendnet would get their act together and make a pan/tilt wireless with a high quality video sensor. Their other products are much better than this one.

Expert setup needed

Criminologist, Amazon
16 October 2008
  • Summary: This webcam works reliably for me and does what I bought it for, but the network setup was certainly challenging. To be fair it's the same situation with other similar internet camera products, but I would definitely not recommend that anyone new to networking take this on without expert help. The setup is complex, the manual is sketchy, and there are some bugs to overcome.

Incomplete

A. Dent "Aragorn", Amazon
5 September 2008
  • Summary: I ordered this camera because the product description stated that it allowed "users to access the camera anywhere in the world by using a Web browser." In my work, we are doing a lot of video, audio conferencing using packages such as NetMeeting, SharedView, Communicator and son on.
