Nice camera

 

When I first looked at this camera's image, it was almost fogged out. I adjusted the focus ring and it's good now. I've been able to record stills and video with this and the ptz Trendnet camera with linux motion. Nice pictures with time and date...

Very nice picture for it's class. Got it on sale for $30.

none it does what it's supposed to do. Had to revert to firmware 1.05.04 to continue to use camera with Linux motion. But it works well. I discovered this after a firmware upgrade. Now working for a couple years since my original review.

Works great

 

I use these for monitoring my aquatic tanks when I am away from home. For the most part, I have had no issues from these cameras. They have only had to be power cycled once in the past year. The resolution is as expected for 640x480. I do like the...

Works great

 

Good picture.

The reset button is not very reliable - may be a defective piece, but could reset the unit once.

Lacks some features

 

Easy to set up, cheap in price

1. No white balance, in area where there are lots of sunshine, the image will be washed out to white ; 2. Be aware when you are changing the default user name and password (you should do so), the camera might lock you out after you changed your...

Worst Tech Support EVER!

 

I have actually installed surveillance cameras and DVRs for my employment, but we have not used IP cameras on any of our systems. I needed a camera to monitor a small portion of my property which has had several attempted break ins. Figured for $20 I'd...

Cheap ... got it on clearance for $20.00 and it hasn't set my home on fire (yet).

TECH SUPPORT: Camera had beautiful pic out of box, but even set to record motion ONLY, records 2 frames every 3 seconds. Called tech support to show me where I may have missed something in setting up camera. Their first solution was to update firmware....

trendnet camera

 

These cameras are pieces of junk. No wonder newegg had them for so cheap.

Very bad quality cameras

I ordered 2 of these and got what I paid for,,JUNK. It took hours to hook them up and the audio will not work on either one of them. I will never buy anything from trendnet again.

Nothing special, but it'll do

 

Cheap webcam. Nothing special. Does it's job - as long as you focus the device.

Decent picture indoors (controlled lighting) after focusing. One way audio is great for watching and listening to the kids while they're playing and you're computing. Good small room IR illumination. Cheap internal monitoring solution

It's a cheap webcam, bad with the good. Trendnet's reputably bad device security - another webcam that won't leave the internal network. I do this out of caution, the new firmwares may be more secure
