TRENDnet TV-IP651W Pan/Tilt, 640 x 480 Max Resolution RJ45 Wireless IP Camera

3 out of 5 eggs good so far, but som gotchas 11/24/2014

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP651W Pan/Tilt, 640 x 480 Max Resolution RJ45 Wireless IP Camera

Pros: Picture better than I expected. I have them facing to outdoors thru a window. Street light front shows good. Back of house with flood light is good as well. No it's not night vision, but I can see pretty well.
Software: just okay. Would be better if I could use my old camera with it that I moved to a different non key area, but only shows Trendnet models as available. (Software with other camera didn't work with Trendnet either. I think there's a conspiracy.) Software only allows for 180 degrees flip, which makes bracket a fail.
Bracket. Up or down, can't mount on side because software won't flip that way. Plus software not smart enough to modify pan/tilt controls if image is flipped.
Bracket also really only allows camera to be mounted one way.
So minus 1 for software
Minus 1 for bracket.

Cons: software okay, but needs more work
Brackets, no options, mount on bracket one way and mount on wall/celing

Other Thoughts: I'd buy another for the sale price, and already put an alert for that price.

Pros: Windows 8.1 works pretty good
Screen is pretty good
HDMI works fine
Bluetooth no issues

Cons: Network card stinks, flat out stinks.
combination usb / power cord is terrible idea
windows button on bottom is stupid
forget speakers

Other Thoughts: It is a little larger than I thought it would be. But getting older, that's better for my vision.
Was getting tired of android on tablet, and apple does nothing for me on tablet level. So decided to try Windows. It needs work. Moving a window by touch is fine, scrolling stinks.
So back to tablet. Network card is awful. I get 5Mbps. I connected a USB adapter to it, network speed on that was fine. Just awful there. This may be a driver issue because when I boot it tells me 65Mbps, then drops after accessing internet for a little while.

USB / Power connection is terrible idea. This means you can't charge and use USB at the same time. The USB cable is micro adapter. It works fine, but I bought a right angle one that sits nice on the tablet.

Bluetooth keyboard I had connected fine first time. I ordered a mouse just so I can use this as a regular laptop.

I find that if turn the whole tablet upside down when I put in in a plate holder (when using keyboard for hands down typing documents). That way I can hit the windows key much easier, which is quite handy.

Okay bottom line. I didn't pay full refurb price. Would never consider this at full retail price, that would be a joke. However, I would have been much happier with this purchase at around 180-200 bucks. Given the network issue and bad power connector deal.

Oh and space isn't too bad. After windows upgrade, still have a lot of space to put on key applications you would use. But plan on buying a 32 or 64GB microusb for more storage. You can load programs and other stuff on it.
