Pros: I was somewhat leery about getting this because of comments about these things not working because of interference. I decided to get one in the 2.4 gigacycle range because the 900 megacycle ones are near the cell phone frequencies. The camera works very good up to the 30 foot distance I have tested it. I had some trouble getting it to connect to my computer using an EasyCap interface, but that was not the camera's problem. The quality compares almost equal to a 5 megipixel webcam that I have set up outside although the color is not as vivid, but you can easily make out faces. Perfectly clear pictures have to have 520+ line resolution. The camera has the ability to select 4 frequency settings (I am assuming you can put up to 4 cameras into the system, but you have to adjust the receiver to see each picture from each camera). It is nice to be able to just run a power cord to the camera and not video cables also. I house these cameras outdoors in a Lowes plastic bird feeder (about $3.85).
Cons: Not a big problem, but the camera seems to be slightly telescopic.
Other Thoughts: Remember, if your neighbors have these setup, you may get interference from them. Anyone with a receiver can view what your camera is seeing.
