Summary: This is a follow-up review from my previous review in December of 2013. We've had this camera for over six months now and it has been working great. Recording 1080p with Zoneminder on Ubuntu 12.04.
1 in 3 Died, Short 60 day Warranty, Poor Customer Service

Summary: Avoid this company at all costs! For a $600 camera you would expect at least a 1 year warranty. We bought three of these units for use inside datacenter spaces, one of the units died within 6 weeks.
Pros: 2 out of 3 units still work, 1 died within 5 weeks.
Cons: 1 in 3 units died within 3 weeks. Warranty period is only 60 days, customer service refused to replace unit with a new unit.
Summary: Overall a good camera, a lack of long cable from the camera wasn't a big deal as I just mounted the camera right onto an outdoor electrical box. Seems sturdy enough although not a perfect solution because if someone where to grab and hang onto the camera i'm sure the box would break.
Pros: - Great price
Cons: - Mount and camera has little teeth/gears where they connect, this makes aiming your camera more difficult as you can't get precise positioning on the left and right.
