Terrible Lag


I really don't understand how 2-way audio would work with this unit with this huge of a video/audio delay. This unit is cheap for a reason. Don't waste your money. Also realize there is a limited exchange policy on this unit and you won't be able to...

This camera does have a high quality image when it finally arrives. Might be good for a security camera

I bought this as a baby monitor and it was a big mistake. It has a 45-60 second lag on average while hard wired and on wireless. I tried every quality setting and could never get the lag less than 30 seconds on the lowest quality setting. I spent over...

Great Internet Camera


Very easy to setup and get online to watch from the web. Also works nicesly with outdoor enclosure from TrendNet

Lights from camera reflect too much onto enclosure glass at night. So far haven't been able to get the Audio to work and you need additional speakers to play audio out of it

I gave this one a gratuitous extra egg only because I got a model 422 that I was pretty happy with

Not fully dead... I hate those ones where it's not completely dead... just squirrely enough for you to dink with it for an hour or two before your convinced is totally messed up ; Dead is dead... defective just robs your geek time

TRENDnet IP Camera


Good Night Vision, Wireless, & you can view on the internet

The picture isn't perfect but good enough only if the camera works! I wrote to TRENDnet and they told me to send the camera back under warranty. I was going to do that, but I found out that it is common for the camera not to stay working. Sometimes the...

Camera has OK picture quality. It can be set up to send you emails when there is motion

Not really a con, just not perfect picture quality. Also, the motion emails don't seem to work perfect once the camera was set up using the included recording software. It seemed to send emails better on its own

Excellent video good night vision for the price easy to configure. All features work as advertise

As any internet camera you should have a good networking knowledge to have it properly configured

Not bad for the money


No server needed. Seems to have man logging options. I have only used email and it works ; Day / Night is okay

IR lighting is week, good for 6'. No PoE option... seems lame for trendnet to have such a poor PoE offering ; Poor motion sensing. Always miss fires on Sunset

Great IP Camera


It works great! This thing is used all the time by us. We have it running 24/7. I've only had to reset it twice in the 6 or 7 months that I've had it. Sound is slightly delayed, but I don't expect it to be real time. We use this to monitor our 20 month...

Setting up email alerts is difficult, I still can't get it to work. I've tried to set up motion recording, but so far, I can only do it through the software, not through the camera itself
