Well worth the $$$ / Excellent Network Camera.
Pros: Quick and easy installation. Needed to install about 6 cameras discreetly throughout multiple rooms in the building. Image quality destroys ANY analog camera and just about the best I've come across at this price.
Cons: Does not have IR but would it be fair to expect that at this price? Not from my experience. Going up to true night vision is going to run at least another $150-200. There are some other cameras that claim to have night vision in this price range but it's a complete gimmick. Don't fall for that. If you need IR do yourself a favor and pay the extra money for something that's actually usable. I've tried some of their more advanced cameras for night vision and have been really impressed so far. I'll be reviewing those after we finish the installation.
Other Thoughts: You can add IR illuminators for night vision or you can just leave the lights on. The lights in the rooms for this project are left on 24/7 anyway. Power over ethernet... You can use a POE switch or POE injector to power it. I used four five F2 versions and needed one F6 to get some closeup action on a container. Seller had both in stock.

Pros: Very high quality camera for the price. I have tried the foscam cameras and other IP cameras around or below this price range and there really is no comparison. Vivotek is on a whole new level. The software is great too. Good image and flexibility. It is also REALLY small so it doesn't stand out as an eye sore.
Cons: I really couldn't expect more for this price range.
Other Thoughts: There is an F6 version and an F2 version (more commonly used). The F2 is better for overseeing a room, whereas the F6 model would be better suited for overseeing operations performed at a cash register. Also available in both black and white.
