Cheap and Unreliable

 

do not recommend

small

These cameras are flaky - they do not stay online (bad wireless from a company that specializes in wireless)

Sorry D-Link

 

Make sure to upgrade the Firmware as soon as you configure the Camera.

I have purchased and used many of D-link's products but unfortunately this camera did not make it to that list. Currently, I also have a LOFTEK CXS 3200 which you can get for around $60 and has way better picture quality and features - make sure to...

- Price! As mentioned above I have a LOFTEK CXS 3200 which is half the price, you can swivel around remotely and has a much clearer picture. This camera is just too expensive consider the low quality of the picture as I mention below. I did a...

Could have been good, but it's not made very well

 

- The WPS button on the camera isn't labeled as such and is instead labeled “RESET”. - Near the end of my testing of this camera, it occurred what use perfectly suits it: a front door or front gate camera. Being alerted by movement means you would know...

- Incredibly easy to setup, you’ll be up and running within ten minutes of deciding where to place the camera. Although the camera is not plug and play the set up wizard will guide you through the steps to get it up and running, even if you do the...

- Build quality is what I would consider to be quite poor; the included Ethernet cable feels cheap, the power cable too feels cheap and wiry, the power adapter itself is made of cheap thin plastic and the camera has its own quality maladies. Chief...

Save money and go with the DCS-931L

 

If you do not require night vision, and are just looking for a camera to watch your pets or your child while you are away or in a different room, steer towards the cheaper 931L. If you really need the extra night vision and local recording, and desire...

This camera does support night vision, motion detection, HD resolution, and local storage for recording. However, that is about as far into the PROS that I can go with this device ; As for actual recording, the device did work as advertised and I was...

Having recently reviewed the DCS-931L, I have found that the jump in price for this version to be entirely unjustified. Yes, this HD model offers a few more basic features over the 931L, however, it also sacrifices a few features and it is all around...
