Pros: Physically larger than the competing products, maybe crooks will be intimidated by that.
Cons: Didn't work out of the box. Wouldn't show connected to an HP PoE switch, even. Tried on ports used by other test cameras, confirming the switch/power/etc was just fine. How hard is it to QC a camera, people?
Other Thoughts: The trope that gear coming from CN is junk is obviously bogus, ALL of the cameras I have tested are from CN and they all worked, save this unit. This is a good reminder to me that testing is always better than guessing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Grandstream GXV3601HD 1600 x 1200 MAX Resolution RJ45 High Definition IP Camera
Pros: Flexible and easy to set lens assembly, good resolution, adheres to ONVIF standards (works with BlueIris). Sturdy design, standard camera mount on bottom, LOTS of features, standard 802.1af PoE. Could be a lot more expensive and still be a good deal.
Cons: The mfg isn't exactly known for their IP cameras, so if you're looking for a complete solution in the box this is not it. If you're integrating your own system, this is fine. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
Other Thoughts: Great choice for a part of a roll-your-own internal camera system, WAY better than I expected.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Solidly built, great for remote office installs, more than enough horsepower to be an effective VPN host, especially as a back-to-back VPN connection. GB interfaces are a big plus. Not at all a UTM, but basic app blocking works reasonably well (Facebook, YouTube, Torrent etc). The price made me fear monthly reboots - I tried one, I liked it, I've bought more over the last 6 months.
Cons: CLI is only there to setup the LAN IP. At least the Web GUI is responsive and fast. VLAN support is physical port based, not 802.1q, so not cool for bigger networks. No IPv6 support YET.
Other Thoughts: For what it is, this is a fine small office/remote office router. It's at least 30% less expensive than the next closest competitive product, the gap might be more than that.READ FULL REVIEW
