Got two of these for 40 bucks from newegg. Not bad considering the price. They are wirless IP cameras. Easy to setup and decent video quality. Great framerate too

None noted

Reasonably good picture in good room lighting

No Auto White Balance function therefore is not very usable in many applications (unless you want to constantly be fiddling with the manual brightness & contrast controls). I have this camera facing into our family room and when the sun shines into the...

Not Great


I would buy a TRENDnet product again.

None for this camera, TRENDnet has good products but this isn't one of them

Over all just a bad camera, ordered two and sent the other one back unopened. Will not stay connected to wireless, bad picture when connected, very short power cable maybe a little over 24 ; For the price I paid on sale its not cost effective to pay...

TrendNet Camera


Great basic, non-night vision camera for the money. Software is pretty easy to setup and use.

For the money, this is a great little wireless camera. It took me 15 minutes from opening the box, installing the software, to having the camera wirelessly attached to my network - all up and running. It works great. So far, I love it for what I needed...

None at this time

Unusable for Security


Followed the instructions for the firmware upgrade and got "invalid file". I can't decide if Trendnet is a scam by continuing to sell this product or just misinformed about what features should be standard. Should be priced at $20-$25.00.

None ; Just because it works out of the box doesn't mean it get's a positve review, because that's what the product is supposed to do

Audio does not work, resolution is horrible and this makes the x4 zoom worthless! Do not use this camera for your baby or home security, basically this cam is good for nothing ; I hope this review saves you the time and effort you may waste on...

Easy setup


Good camera. Not great. I guess it's perfect for the price point (if bought on sale...)

This camera has to be the easiest I've ever setup of cheap network cameras. Picture quality in good light is very good

The camera is very poor at high or low light situations. Without good light, it's unviewable. The web enabled cloud viewing requires too much extra software (I hate java and Active X is buggy) plus is confusing in that you don't get a motion view on...

Networking 101-202


Once you set the first one up it's gravy. Remember first camera depending on your router will be similar to port 51. 2nd port 52 etc.

Has great software and motion detection. You can block out ceiling fans from the motion sensor. Night vision works great. Can view home from the office. Software for recording handles over 20 cameras. Recordings have great compression and easy access

You need to be a networking wiz to get this at full function. 1: I had to buy a DNS name from so I can watch offsite. My router did not support the free one. 2: Set up camera static IP outside of DHCP pool and forwarded edited port number...
