Email NOT stand alone..

Larry C., Newegg
20 October 2009
  • Pros: O.K. picture and as represented with one glaring exception.
  • Cons: The motion sensing will send an email only if the program is running on a pc connected to the camera. It makes no sense that a stand alone camera accessible from the internet cannot send an email when motion is detected unless a pc is awake and actively in control.

Horrible web server

B. R., Newegg
26 September 2009
  • Summary: Upgrading the firmware didn't help.
  • Pros: Pan and tilt capabilities are a nice feature
  • Cons: The web server doesn't work at all with Opera (displays nothing), is mostly non-functional with Firefox, kind of works with Epiphany (sometimes it displays the menus, sometimes not, sometimes the Java works, sometimes not). Limux users should avoild this camera. I've been using Dlink cameras whic...

  • Pros: Good all around
  • Cons: NO https Auth. so your password are all passed in clear text. IT freezes I have to unplug and replug every other day. The camera is installed in A/C indoor place. So overheating is not an issue here.

Good Overall

Steven E., Newegg
26 August 2009
  • Summary: Maximum operating temperature is 104 deg F. That may be fine for most but I live in Arizona and the cam is mounted in a protected area outdoors. Temps easily reach in excess of 104 degrees. I passed this along to Trendnet but it fell on deaf ears.
  • Pros: Good quality video for the price.
  • Cons: As others have said, the zoom feature is worthless. Anything above 1X is of such low quality as to be indistinguishable. I don't know why they bothered putting this so-called zoom feature on here. It certainly is nowhere near the zoom quality of the TV-IP422 as example.

  • 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.

Port F F Forwarding

Joseph S., Newegg
15 May 2009
  • Summary: If you have Verizon FIOS use port 9100
  • Pros: Bought this to keep an eye on my elderly mother while I'm at work. For me it works excellent. If you want a better picture - you need to spend some more money.
  • Cons: Lack of documentation on port forwarding. The only issue I had was setting up port forwarding in Verizon's router - that took a week and many headaches to figure out.

Great for the price

Christopher G., Newegg
3 April 2009
  • Summary: We really love this camera. It has been great to see what's going on in our home when we aren't there.
  • Pros: This camera is great. It has great picture quality after some tweaking with focus and the movement and menu is great.
  • Cons: Like someone else said, the zoom is worthless. Also, it would be nice if there was sound, but we bought it knowing that there wasn't sound.

Newegg good but TV-IP400W sucks

Donald R., Newegg
14 March 2009
  • Summary: Picture is very poor in quality especially at night with security lighting. The jerking motion when pan and tilt isn't very smooth at all. When I played back captured video it is so jumpy and unstable for viewing like 3 FPS not 30 FPS
  • Pros: Camera is small, light weight, and had a good price from Newegg. Delevery was prompt and tech support with Newegg was very helpful. I enjoy doing business with Newegg.
  • Cons: The TV-IP400W worked well with RJ45 connected but when I went wireless I had to power boot it almost everytime my PC went into sleep or screen saver mode. Stayed on the phone with Trendnet tech support from day 1 until day 8 and was not able to fix the problem even after upgrading the firmware. T...
