1 out of 5 eggsExtremely hard to setup and use

This review is from: D-Link DNR-202L mydlink Camera Video Recorder

Pros: cheaper than the other systems I looked at.

Cons: Literally everything else.
1) The initial setup took hours. I followed the directions in the box precisely. I could not get mydlink to ever recognize this DVR. One of the odd steps was to do a manual firmware upgrade since my firmware version was V1.0. Nobody thought of making this step automatic (its connected to a network after all). So the hacky firmware update had to be done. Even after the update, mydlink would never connect. The only way I could get any connection is the direct login to the IP address of the DVR. Also, the web interface requires Java, which is not a problem normally. The problem is that Java would not start saying the product certificate was revoked. I could not find a new certificate online. I temporarily allowed invalid certificates through the Java console. But this is obviously a worrying problem using this product and far from easy to use. I ended up just using the DVR with my hacked web based access instead of returning it. That turned out to be a mistake.

2) The web based access I was using to the DVR is garbage. Its a non intuitive user interface. When I got used to how this poorly organized web access was organized, it turned out to be very sluggish and buggy to use overall. Clicks take such a variable amount of time to be processed by the hardware that it is totally annoying. Setting up options such as auto recording on event, start recording 30 seconds earlier than even (so I make sure I catch the event as it starts) , and auto delete so the HDD does not fill up, took a while to figure out. Some of the options I tried never actually worked. Start recording 30 seconds early worked only half the time.

3) After a couple months using the DVR it stopped working. Blinking blue light on top and non responsive on the web interface. I figured out that the IP address changed due to router rebooting, which I don't care about. I was able to easily access the new and correct IP address, but the login would fail all the time. I could not think of a better way to get this thing working than to reset the product to factory settings and start the whole init process again. This time I could never get the DVR to respond to the startup wizard after hours of trying.

I just gave up. This product is far too hard to setup, too buggy, not user friendly, and finally broken after a couple months. No more dlink products for me. I wish I returned this a couple months ago. I'm shopping for a better quality system now.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst user interface ever

This review is from: D-Link DNR-202L mydlink Camera Video Recorder

Pros: Well, I got this shipped to me nice and fast. That was good. And it does seem to record, when you can get it set up.

Cons: Where do I start?! First of all, the software to this thing is really difficult to set up. I had to call tech support and it still took us most of an hour to deal with it.

The documentation online will tell you it works with Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc. Don't believe it. It works with ONLY Internet Explorer. (No, not even Microsoft Edge.)

Also, getting to an actual screen to deal with settings involves way too many clicks and is not intuitive at all.

Plus, accessing the website to see the feed from this recorder involves clicking on links that my web browsers tell me is insecure and I shouldn't go there...yeah, that's a great thing to tell someone who's insecure enough to be putting up security cameras.

I'm especially disappointed because the D-link camera I bought was a breeze to set up and use, no problems at all. This thing and its dysfunctional interface, however, seems like it should have gone through more testing before being sent out to the world.

5 out of 5 eggsNo PC Needed.. Easy USB Storage

This review is from: D-Link DNR-202L mydlink Camera Video Recorder

Pros: Small size..
2 USB connections for attached storage..
Easy one touch button (or with program) removal of attached storage.
Accepts a lot of TB storage for a lot of recordings.
Soft 'Blue/Red' activity light on top.

Cons: None..
Sure the ability to record from more than 4 cameras would be a nice FW improvement, and yes there is another model for that.. but @ 4 cameras recording with the ability to still have 'events' for other cameras makes this a great buy.. not a con.
keep in mind that if you set to receive email notifications that you could get quite a few. You can adjust motion detection for your pets.. I think a few too many notifications (with a photo) is better than not.. so not a con

Other Thoughts: For awhile now I have had 2 cameras recording 24/7 on a 2TB HDD (non-AC powered) and a second similar 500GB USB HDD attached. With 2 I get +- a month of recorded files. I have a 3rd outdoor camera on the way.
Using the control pages for this I get great quality recordings, with no problems. I had an AC powered HDD that crashed and the 202L beeped to let me know there was a problem. A little annoying at 2am.. but it did it's job.
The software has easy to use connect, format and removal choices and buttons on the 202L for easy at plugin removal choices.
Normal events and functions for separate cameras can be done, such as motion detection recordings. I had zero problems doing a plug and play setup and software adjustments (ie: each cameras own controls settings on separate LAN pages).. I did call customer support with a 'motion detection' and who controls who with all the equipment separate settings. From my experiences and others as read in reviews I invested even more into my D-Link system knowing they are there and helpful. Yes, if you want one and aren't sure if your skill set will... go for it, it's easier than you think, support is awesome and after a little while you'll realize that once set.. it's a forget and use as needed. You don't have to constantly fix things. I have had 2 drops from one of my outside cameras over the year plus I have been using D-Link wireless cameras (not bad.. easy reconnect.. I rebooted the camera each time and it's over 30' away from my router). Why run cables when you can have a reliable wireless security system.
I use the phone app 'mydlink View-NVR' app and it's awesome.. you can even take a snapshot picture, turn on and off notifications. And from any PC you can also connect with mydlink.
I am adding cameras and getting great coverage (we use one to even see who's at the door). I love the 'no monthly fee' and with notifications I can call the authorities and use my recordings to get what I need and just having the cameras will make a thief think twice. Well, the smart ones anyhow, the not so smart ones will find out that you were smart and have a camera system. D'Link is a great choice, get one I doubt you'll return any of it and this 202L make life so easy without the need for a PC, Server or other on and running.. you do need an internet connection and a decent range router for a better range if needed.

2 out of 5 eggsIt works...

This review is from: D-Link DNR-202L mydlink Camera Video Recorder

Pros: Simple Setup...

Cons: Only works with d-link cameras
Requires Java to view
iPhone App only connects via their service (you can't point to your own static IP)

Other Thoughts: Generally it does what it should. But in the end, I think I'm going to DIY it with a RasberryPI. It supports 8 cameras with only 4 recording at ta time. Right now I can't figure out how to change around the 4 it's recording from.

5 out of 5 eggsNice products

This review is from: D-Link DNR-202L mydlink Camera Video Recorder

Pros: Badge # AR004611was my tech support person and he walked me thru any issues i was having. Now all 6 cameras work fine as well as my DNR 202L RECORDER. Really like the Pan and Tilt camera. Would not recommend any camera without day and night vision, but i recommend the other dlink cameras and the recorder.

Cons: none so far

4 out of 5 eggsDNR-202L

This review is from: D-Link DNR-202L mydlink Camera Video Recorder

Pros: It took a couple of tech support tries to get it rolling but with help from a great tech specialist George (ID AR004206.), we got the unit and cameras working just great. Mac does have an issue with Java which we fixed with a workaround and George said that Dlink is working to rectify the problem quickly.

Cons: A bit complex for your non tech person to install. But overall quality and price and options very good.

5 out of 5 eggsUp and Working

This review is from: D-Link DNR-202L mydlink Camera Video Recorder

Pros: I bought this as a package with 4x DSC-932L Wireless Cameras as n all in one monitoring/recording system. I was able to get all the items up and running on MyDlink but the cameras were not being recognized automatically by the DSC-202L. I found the tech support number for Dlink listed here on NewEgg 877-453-5465. The phone system was easy to navigate and told me a 10 minute wait.. .that was actually only a minute. The representative Erin # AR004642 was very helpful. She easily manually connected my cameras and even helped me attach the final two. She also troubleshooted intermittent recoding issue that I require a wifi extender which I will by immediately..

I have been using this about a week and have the remote viewer installed on my cell phone and it works great... the sound feature is amazing. Video quality isn't high def but definitely identifiable. The cameras work amazing even with the lights out at night.

Cons: I don't consider calling Tech Support to get a device to work a Con unless I have to hold for an hour and the issue is not resolved. You might.

Other Thoughts: I don't consider calling Tech Support to get a device to work a Con unless I have to hold for an hour and the issue is not resolved.
