Consumer review (newegg.com)

Bad, just like the other reviews say

 

Trust the other reviews and don't waste your money on the DCS-950G.

None

Just like other reviews have said, this is a truly bad product. Unit runs very hot and locks up after just a few minutes. Heat seems to be the issue. I placed the camera out side to test the overheating theory (Temp 32 F), and it would work for about...

No more from Dlink

 

In the past Dlink had manufactured solid products. This is not the case any more. This camera joins a long list of recent Dlink purchases that have failed months after purchase. I will not buy another Dlink product.

Motion detection, wireless, worked well when it worked

I have had to RMA 3 of these cameras because they just stopped working. 1 year warranty isn't enough. The unit runs very hot which is probably why they are so failure prone. Dlink technical support is among the worst in the world

Decent when it worked

 

used the product for about 8 month then it finally died

decent video in light

slow wireless and would lock up a couple of times a month and have to hard reset

Consumer review (newegg.com)

I was wrong

 

I bought two of these to setup in my house for monitoring the doors. After a week of trying to configure these things wirelessly and having it only connect at times off and on I decided I might as well just hard wire them with ethernet cable to bypass...

A product that is faulty from the manufacturer has no pro's

I read all the bad reviews online (they are everywhere, not just NewEgg) but I still decided to try these out because of the price range and listed features. Sometimes a lot of "problems" people have with things are out of their own misunderstanding of...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Works fine

 

I haven't ran this camera through that much testing but I have set it up in 3 different locations with 3 different Belkin routers and it hasn't missed a beat. It's worked fine every time I plugged it in. I did have a little problem getting it through...

Good video. No connection problems with Belkin router. Night shot works well

Works with Internet Explorer only. I have had video problems at 640x480, even on a LAN

I like it for the price.

 

Excellent camera for the price.

Little flicker problem with night shot activated but usable.

D-LINK WRLS INTERNET CAMERA BUILT-IN MIC 54MBPS 11G

 

No Comment.

The range meets my needs, which I need to watch my animals which are 2 rooms over. WPA TKIP encryption for a webcamera is very very good. My last benefit is multiple users, again to watch animals not everyone is going to want to be the sole monitor in...

It doesn''t perform well in darkness. It also took a little time to set up. You need to cat 5 to router first and use a computer to recognize the webcamera then you can configure it for wireless
