Consumer review (



My dog groaned at the lullabies.

Well, I guess the first pro to mention is I actually started laughing as I opened the Newegg shipping box. For starters, I was caught off guard at how large this thing is! It has a 3.5inch diameter, and roughly the size of a softball. But, I also...

Decent baby camera


The camera quality (non HD) is decent for up close. The night vision works pretty well.

The initial setup is very easy. You plug it up, download the app, go through the setup process, link it to your wifi, and you're done. You can watch it from the app, or the mydlink website ; All-in-all I would recommend this to someone who wants to use...

When trying to save video clips/pictures, it seems like it doesn't always work. Especially when trying to save them to your phone or tablet. You have to change a setting inside the app, then try and take a video or photo. I couldn't find the photos or...
