3 out of 5 eggsgood

Pros: Easy to configure

Cons: Expensive for what you get

Other Thoughts: Bought 8 of these.
They are pretty good cameras, certainly better than the cheapo trendnet ones.
They definatly do the trick for small business.
I think they're overpriced though.
Yes Cisco is awesome, and quality is very good, but I think these cameras are worth more around the $150 - $175 range.

3 out of 5 eggsCisco PVC2300

Pros: Management of the camera is fairly easy and straightforward. Works well over a 100M home network. No noticeable congestion or slowdowns.
Only 1 strange 'it just stopped working' incident over the past 3-4 months. Remove power plug/plug it back in and all has been well since.

Cons: Cannot seem to get a good focus with the included manual focus lens. Approx range to target area is 30-to-45 feet, well within range of the camera and lens, but it doesn't get a crisp sharp focus at all. My less expensive mini dv digital camcorder has way better focus...
The included monitoring software is so-so. When you open the Playback module, the calendar to choose a date and time range for viewing defaults to 2007?!? I am no programmer, but it seems it should be fairly easy to make it default to the current day or week maybe? Video files are in a proprietary format. The included software can convert them to avi though if needed.

1 out of 5 eggsi\I'M SENDING IT BACK

Pros: Seems to have good image quality when viewed on my desktop but that's now what I bought it for.

Cons: Will not transmit to my ftp site, and gives no indication why not.
Too many options that make no sense to me.
The setup screens are incomprehensible to say the least
I just want it to do what other cameras have done for me: Snap a picture every 5 minutes and ftp it to my web site. Why is this so difficult?
Changes IP address at the drop of a hat.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great - Using it in High Profile Customer Installations

Pros: Camera works great, web based GUI tool is nice integrates will with other systems. Simple IP management scheme and ability to add focal lenses make this a huge plus.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Not sure why some others are having issues with web access. Make sure you have the latest .NET support from Microsoft as well as the right Active X controllers.

1 out of 5 eggsAbsolute JUNK!


Cons: I have worked with security IP cameras for 5 years. This is the WORST piece of junk on the market. It crashes IE, and firefox. It boots about 50% of the time. When it does work the pciture lasts for about 30 seconds before turning into mush.

Other Thoughts: Do not waste your time!

1 out of 5 eggsCamera doesn't work as Linksys states

Pros: If it worked, the price

Cons: The camera doesn't multicast rtp or rstp streams as Linksys states. Per Linksys it requires much more of their products exclusively until they fix it and correct the documentation that states what this camera is capable of theoretically though omits the fact that it doesn't work.
