This review is from: Rosewill RCAD-11003 USB3.0 Adapter For IDE/SATA Device
Pros: A must have on the tech bench of every IT department
Cons: Don't loan it out!! Make them buy one..
Other Thoughts: The PS -power supply comes in handy to unload CD-DVD drives that have been removed but still have media in them..READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Read the other reviewers Pro reviews. I agree with them rather than restate the obvious.
I submitted a review earlier but it did not post...
If your buying just 1 camera, buy this but if it's the start of a camera network...read on...
Cons: I spent a week off and on playing with D-VIEW CAM the program that allows you to record and use multiple cameras...
PLENTY OF BUGS- rather than go go into it here, go to their website and read the forum on D-VIEW CAM FAQ's and BUG REPORTS. D-LINK may be fixing them as we write but I am writing this today..I have see no new releases.
Biggest bug in my opinion..D-VIEW CAM only recognizes D-LINK cameras!!! Other manufacturers camera and software recognizes all camera's. So how do you get support if you are using camera D and Software T?
No linux-apple-chrome support..
I understand but cannot experience D-VIEW cam will only allow you to view 1 camera live. My other software that came with another manufacturers camera allows me to view it's camera and my D-link live at the same time.
Other Thoughts: I am a NEWEGG EGGPERT REVIEWER. I don;t get paid but sometimes I get to keep the product. This one is going to my daughter and my newborn grandson. I am keeping another manufacturers and moving forward to TPZ. They are now under $100.
1 egg off- buggy software.
1 egg off- software only recognizes D-Link Devices
1 egg off-no linux-apple-chrome support..they are O/S's becoming popular. and a DLINK router can operate with them so...there you go another egg.
If DLINK routers can handle various manufacturers computers with multiple OS's. They are not whole heartly in the IP wireless cloud camera business. I suspect the guts of both my camera's come out of the same off shore factory.. the start up manuals are virtually word for word..
This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP751WC 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Wireless Cloud Camera
Pros: I'm a Newegg Eggspert Reviewer, but this review is unsolicited as I purchased it on my own for my own use, I was not in this instance asked by Newegg to review it.
#1 worth the money. New Egg had a sale. These were originally selling for about $100...
Basically they are a webcam, a wifi network card in one box with software and a mounting bracket. Worth todays price.
#2 software allows zooming...
#3 software will support up to 32 of these cameras "sprinkled" around the mansion.
#4 WPS wireless set up..
#5 actually a good picture..
#6 can be viewed over the internet -password protected.
#7 does have a microphone..so you can hear at the camera location.
#8 has front mounted status lights that can be turned off or on to indicate in use for security. if you want the subject to see the "recording" light or not.
#7 software has a motion detection mode so the camera won't record hours of the alley way till a cat walks through.
#8 camera focus ring... but have not used it because great focus..
Cons: Not really a con---a little time is needed to adjust the camera and screw it down to get the desired picture..Once the bracket-stand is mounted, you can move the camera a bit on a swivel mount.. I would set up everything at the computer then put the app on a smart phone so when up on a ladder you can see what the camera sees on your smart phone. then screw it down..
even though wireless it comes with a wall wart power transformer that has a 5ft cord. So you need 120Vac within 5 feet of the camera. Even a light duty extension cord will work.
Not waterproof, but can be used under an eve outside in a dry location..
No external wifi antenna connection.
Other Thoughts: If you do not need tilt and pan, this is perfect.
This model does not have night lighting...An external IR LED array could be fabricated easily as I am a hobbyist. Or place this unit by a flood light.
Focus range is excellent, I could see items 4 inches to 400 feet in detail while pointing through a window one day..
My grandkids get to watch the "cow cam" for a few days...Next it's a ":goat cam" then a "chicken cam"
