1 out of 5 eggsWorked fine for 6 months... than stopped

Pros: Good image quality for IP camera, ability to pan/patrol. Multiple image quality profiles.

Cons: Not reliable. During 6 months I owned it, 3-4 times became unresponsive and required power cycle. Then one day green led no longer is on and camera is not accessible at all. Tried direct LAN connection, hard reset.

Other Thoughts: In addition to this camera, I owned 3 more D-Link brand cameras: DCS-930L and two DCS-932L. Both cameras are pretty reliable and still in service for about 2 years. This is first camera that died on me after 6 months of service. I guess D-Link started "cost cutting, effective management."

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate the input as we take the input into great consideration and we are sorry to hear that you are encountering issues with the product. D-Link advises that you factory reset the camera and then download and install the latest firmware from www.support.dlink.com.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent picture quality
Audio works fine

Cons: Recording did not work at all! I tried with a QNAP NAS, local PC, and local SD card. Also tried 2 different firmware revisions.
Although you can turn off the green power light, you cannot shut off the sensors which light up red.
ActiveX control did not like the latest FireFox browser

Other Thoughts: I am sending back for RMA. It's pointless if recording feature does not work on demand.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera, Amazing Price

Pros: The unit itself is fairly lightweight which made mounting this to the wall with the 90 degree wall mount that came with the unit a breeze.

Wi-Fi setup was a breeze since my wireless router has WPS. I simply pressed the button on the router waited for it to blink then did the same on the camera and I was in business. After a few days I wanted to hard wire the camera in so I would get a solid frame rate with bit rate. So I ran an Ethernet cable to the camera and whamo my video quality was rock solid (22fps @ 2200 mbps) on my phone 4gLTE (strong signal) and Wi-Fi I would get 30fps at 44mbps for comparison. All of these values I monitor off of my Lumia 1020 so I am not sure how you would be able to do an apples to apples on your end. Sufficed to say that this camera is buy far the best I have owned and the easiest that I have setup.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera

Pros: Camera has a good picture, pans and tilts well. App for phone handles watch the camera from out side the house.

Cons: Somewhat dificult to set up wireless access.

Other Thoughts: Support was great. I sent an Email one day and the next day I had a call from support( AR004202) this young lady was real sharp. With in minutes she had the camera working with my wireless network. I would recommend D-Link to anyone who wants great support and a great product. I felt bad that I missed some key router inserts on the D-link site but feel great that the support was behind me.

5 out of 5 eggsfast and easy

Pros: This small device was inexpensive and easy to set up (took 15 minutes). Works on my iPhone and PC for remote viewing. Complements my existing security system nicely. Highly configurable.... just ordered another one.

Cons: So far it works well

4 out of 5 eggsIts a beast...

Pros: sturdy, software support, easy to configure, the MyDlink website, strong wireless signal, everything you need in the box. Advanced settings will make you proud...

Cons: pretty large - to the point of bulky, not - nondescript, you know its recording you, the IR sensor does not shine well through windows. But no overall deal breakers

Other Thoughts: the website is really handy, it is able to get to the cameras from the website, it sends email notifications. You can configure motion detection. Its a well crafted piece of tech.

4 out of 5 eggsupdate

Pros: Please see my earlier review on the video quality
Overall satisfied, see cons below.

Cons: Slow to respond. 1-2 second delay before moving/pan/tilt.
I originally used the Synology Surveillance center system to evaluate which works well. Then I tried with the Dlink own software. I would recommend setting up each camera with the setup program fully then use it with other systems if you like. They will work independent from each other.
The reason I say this is because the Dlink software is NOT smart enough to know that all you need to do is associate a camera with your dlink account. so you have to go through the whole setup again. i ran into some glitches, slow Dlink system and webpage response. When you do that then everything is OK. There is a myDlink app for Ipad and a lite version for the iphone. The ipad version is $0.99. I bought it to see if it was any better than tthe lite ans I really cannot see one except it you have other dlink stuff like a NAS then you can integrate those into one app.
The app will connect though your online account or it will find cameras in your local network, so you can select how to view your cameras - network-wise.
Audio works but you need to update your firmware to get it to work properly

Other Thoughts: Dlink has an opportunity to make an excellent product. If they are able to make their interfaces work faster, they will do very well with their IP cameras. As o3/2014 a new system upgrade will happen 4/2014. Anxious to see what will happen and i hope it will make the system respond faster.

4 out of 5 eggsNice, could be better

Pros: I was looking to get a decent camera system not at an expensive price. Saw these go on sale, bought 2. Used the Windows setup and it took not much time, had to refresh looking for wifi system x1 before the software saw my wifi. Once it was on the wifi I stopped.
I have a DS1812+, and synology reports this camera compatible with their system and their surveillance station software. Used the surveillance station setup, saw the IP camera almost immediately, went through setup and VOILA we are viewing.
YOu get the option of resolution to view/ record. I selected 640just to see how it was. Video is pretty clear, camera video has minimal lag and you can see everything. i will select this mode since I will be doing continuous recording to the DS and the resolution to storage amount is fine.
Why did I say it could be better? The pan and tilt have a 1-2 second lag. you need to click the direction and wait till it responds. Not very smooth. Other than that I am pretty satisfied with the quality and utility/useability.

I use the synology iOS software on my iPhone and iPad and I can see live video instantly. I cal also take a snapshot on demand with my iOS device.

DLink webpage has software for Windows and Mac. It says Win7, I used Win8 with no issues.

Cons: Slow pan tilt.

Other Thoughts: Cost effective video surveillance and good compatibility with Synology Surveillance station software.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Camera

Pros: Decent Camera (bought 2 just a little over one month ago) - but my current cameras (starting to die out now) were ABS and they were purchased in 2009. I like the ability to pan and tilt from my iPhone, listen in to noise level and respond back thru the camera.

Cons: The focus leaves a lot to be desired. I couldn't find a way to focus it except by manually turning the focus ring on the camera. If there is a way please let me know. So having the scene that I want to capture, means either having someone help me at the big screen or viewing on my iPhone.

Other Thoughts: The 720 is not something that I see much value in so, future purchases will probably be the cheaper model (also bought 2 a month ago), the 5020L which is a good basic camera. One other issue is wifi connectivity. If your wifi goes down or you need to reset it it, you need to connect one camera to via cat 5/6 and then all cameras are all connected. I'd keep one near your router.

Manufacturer Response:

We want to thank you for the feedback as we appreciate the input greatly. Please note that the only way to focus the camera is by manually adjusting the ring located on the front of the camera. If you ever run into any issues with the camera please take advantage of our support program. By visiting www.support.dlink.com you will be able to contact our Technical support team and will be able to access firmware upgrades, user manuals, and tutorials. We thank you for choosing D-Link.

1 out of 5 eggsDowngrading previous review

Pros: Feels like good quality hardware.

Cons: DLink "support" is all talk and no action. They made a public show by responding to my previous 2 star review here, what they have not done is respond at all to the customer service ticket CSP14024012 I created before posting my previous review.

I've checked my inbox and my spam folder every single day. No response from them.

I went back to the mydlink website today to see what the status of my ticket was, and guess what? There is no way to view status of a customer support ticket on mydlink - because you can't create an account to log in if their junk software can't find your camera!!!

So they give you a CS ticket # that you can do absolutely nothing with because of the Catch 22 they've created.

DLink has lost me as a customer. It's sheer idiocy to require that their software work properly before I can even create an account to track the software problems I've encountered.
