1 out of 5 eggsoverpriced, not very high quality

Pros: Lots of features on the box.

Cons: Software uses a lot of processing power for motion detection. The entire system is buggy and unreliable. waste of money. I DO NOT recommend these.

Other Thoughts: Got 2 of these over a year ago and wanted to monitor the pool. Can't remember a time they worked reliably. They never were even worth mounting.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat camera

Pros: Smooth motion, easy setup if you know beginner networking. Good free software, reliable connection.

Cons: grainy picture

Other Thoughts: Much better than the wireless cameras I bought from a certain popular networking product brand that starts with D. I will be buying more of these.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat's Not To Like?

Pros: Ethernet and 802.11b/g connectivity with WPA encryption (it really does support WPA, even though none of the product literature says so), perfectly acceptable picture quality, interchangeable CS-mount lens capability, decent low-light capability, nice feature set via Web admin, Java as well as ActiveX support for those of us who don't run IE on a PC.

Cons: None, really

Other Thoughts: I set this thing up as a bird-feeder cam for my Web site, as a replacement for an Intellinet 550710, which was fine but didn't include WiFi. Overall, the TrendNet cam is a noticeable improvement, with a slightly better feature set and picture quality for less money. My 10x zoom CS mount lens has bad light-gathering characteristics (not surprisingly) but the TrendNet handles medium-light conditions with the lens much better than the old camera. I've seen comments that the unit does not come with a camera mount: mine did, and it seems obvious that it was supposed to be in there. Administrative pages are nicely laid out and easy to configure. I don't use the motion-capture trigger feature, so I can't speak to its effectiveness.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Wireless IP Camera

Pros: The onboard operating system (Debian, I believe) is the main reason to buy an IP camera. The mount is beyond sturdy, the lens is replaceable, and the firmware is very easy to use - with little or no explanations needed. The daytime picture is magnificent, and contrary to other reviews, the wireless capability is HIGHLY reliable...

Cons: The fault of a picture occasionally freezing up, I think, is an outdated CVCS Java Applet (time to code up a new one, TRENDnet). Also, yes - the night time picture is grainy, but more than acceptable for a camera in this price range. It outperforms its discontinued sister cameras, the TV-IP100 and TV-100W at night. This camera is not for networking novices - though I didn't refer to any of the included software or manuals, I know about this stuff, so I just dove in...

Other Thoughts: This is my first purchase with NewEgg.Com, and wow...

The shipping was incredibly fast!

As for the camera, it's exactly what I wanted.

If you'd care to see what this camera can do in a real, live application, I have it running at nepa309.com. Click on "camera three" - that's the TV-IP201W.

My site offers live, 24/7 weather and road conditions to local commuters from Linux networks and web servers I put together in my home. The three cameras I use are all TRENDnet.

The TV-IP201W is a big step up from the TV-IP100 models. Offering audio (which I don't use), what seems to be a better CMOS image sensor, and a more stable mounting system.

What the TV-IP100's have over the TV-IP201W is a newer, more reliable Java applet for streaming video. All my cameras use their latest and greatest firmware releases, I dunno...

I'm still impressed. With its onboard OS, this little camera replaced a cumbersome PC sitting on my kitchen table, and that's enough for me!

5 out of 5 eggsGood Camera, Tried Many

Pros: Very simple camera. A must to change out the lens for a wider lens. It makes a ton of difference, even for low light compared to stock lens. Don't waste your time with the software that is included with the camera, except for the SETUP Wizard. I use View Commander Software which gives the ability to mix and match with Axis cameras and such. The Trendnet is mainly used inside. I would easily compare this to the Axis 210 for quality.

Cons: Every now and then you will get a bad camera that will drive you nuts. Don't waste too much time, return and get another one.

Other Thoughts: I have used a wall timer to have the camera turn off for 15 minutes at 3a.m. and then turn back on every night. It keeps the camera from getting stuck and wakes it up. It is a cheap $7 wall timer from Walgrens. I have installed 40 + of this particular model mixing with Axis. 3rd party software and a different lens is a must.

1 out of 5 eggsBAD DEVICE

Pros: I would have been nice to watch the house when away and it has worked that much in I was able to set it up to view over the internet. When it works it is great I will have to purchase another brand.

Cons: Device locks up several times a day sometimes coming back to where it could be acessed. Sometimes having to be hard reset before becoming funtional again. .Software package does not work correctly even after the firmware and verison updates.
FTP uploads never worked and emailing a pitcure when trigered worked sometimes.

Other Thoughts: Support is terrible. Four days after sending a request for support I emailed again and ask Am I going to get some help here? they ask a couple questions and now three.days and I have not heard back again. GOOD PRODUCT IDEAL BUT BAD PROVIDER. DON"T BUY UNLESS YOU WANT TO SEE FOR YOURSELF!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great camera for the price. Really easy to setup for me. Newegg had this thing sent to me via the Enterprise's transporter room i believe. Only took a day in shipping.....WOW...

Cons: Wish it had a wider angle lens. Could be troublesome for some to setup as the camera comes default with a private static of 192.168.0.30 and if you have your network on any other ip ie.... 192.168.1.1 or so this could be a difficult setup. Once in the GUI for the first time you can change the static ip scheme to whatever you wish.

1 out of 5 eggsCam sucks

Pros: None

Cons: I bought this cam to send snap shots to a FTP server. The thing would not work. Not through a firewall or a local FTP server. It took hours to get this thing so I can view it over the web. The email has the same problems. As a network Engineer, this thing is a headache.

Other Thoughts: Go for the TV-IP100W.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good for the price

Pros: Good video quality was able to move it around wirelessly without freezing on me good for indoors and outdoors as long as its not raining outside. Remote connection is a plus++ was able to see my driveway in the dark (there was a street light so made it easier) watching the camera remotely for free ( I heard on linksys cameras you have to pay to watch it remotely)

Cons: pretty bulky it was as long as my hand from the wrist to my finger tips and wide as my hand. audio goes in and out. Doesn't email me when motion is detected and does not take snapshots doesn't have night vision and gets a little hot also

Other Thoughts: this is a good ip camera if someone is watching your house remotely while your gone and able to take screen shots them selves with print screen button.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad!

Pros: Nice picture, good audio, easy to use once set up

Cons: network setup could be easier,

Other Thoughts: When i got this product, i was upset that the box and website specs say it only supports WEP, however, don't worry, it does support WPA! To set up the network you must plug it into the LAN and change your IP address to log into this camera for the first time. AFter that, its very easy to use!
