Pros: Arm/Base is sturdy. Seems better than average.
Cons: ONVIF - don't think so. ONVIF compliancy software says it isn't compliant (as in no ONVIF support at all). Not one ONVIF application I tried could find it.
Other Thoughts: The corner obscurement I noticed previously is an artifact of setting the focal length at an extreme setting. More modest settings do not have corner obscurement.
I tried 1 of the CD applications after deleting the viral .dll, but could not get it to find the camera (probably because the camera is not ONVIF compliant as far as I can tell).
Playing with settings, I did manage to get both the day/night sensor and other features inoperable. A reset to factory defaults was required to recover them (interestingly, a few features seemed to work a bit better as well).
I am occasionally able to see the camera with IE on Windows 8.1. I have not succeeded with Windows 7 and IE yet. Windows 8 and IE seems to work reliably, as do P2P applications on all hardware.
This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NB50
brushed black aluminum (matches my VAIO laptop perfectly)
Cons: requires 2 USB ports and special included cable.
no external AC power possible
Install program is poorly designed.
Other Thoughts: It's a decent portable burner. The two USB ports required must be within a couple of inches of each other. Fortunately, I had two as required or this would have been an instant return.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Mount is sturdy
Good IR range
Passable Web user interface (not great)
Cons: shielding can obscure corners of view field
for my camera, extreme corners are blocked even without shield
IR LEDs have a slight red glow (for my application, this is a minus - others might think a plus)
The Web user interface doesn't work with my windows 8.1 laptop. Works with other windows versions
CD has odd .dll on it that detects as malware.
No company name, no model number google recognizes - I think support will never exist as a result
Other Thoughts: For as long as the camera works, it seems decent. There is some distortion (curvature) in the image, but this is marginal.
The web interface being the only interface and the error on windows 8.1 caused me some grief. The protocol must be a standard as there are several android programs that will communicate with the camera. Fortunately, windows 8 and earlier all work properly with it. I didn't try the bundled software as the malware included with it was not promising.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
