Pros: I became interested in this camera after another TRENDnet model was put out to pasture. I'm glad I waited. It had all the features of that model and then some like slowing down the shutter to get a better image at night. The 672WI has that but also IR for night vision. However, you can opt to have it set to "Always Day," "Always Night," "Auto," or "Manual" which places a night vision icon on the live view page which allows you to toggle night vision at will. When night vision is enabled or disabled you hear a click which I think is the filter engaging or disengaging. TRENDnet has an emulator on their website for many of their new models--I encourage you to try it.
I especially like that this cam has the ability to email video 10sec clips. This is the first cam I've had that's been able to do this. (Can other cams do this?)I previously had to rely on Blue Iris cam software but unlike Blue Iris, this does not put the video clip in line in the email but instead comes as an attachment which has to be downloaded. But that's a minor niggle as I do appreciate the ability to do it.
I also like the 1280x800 resolution. The image quality is definitely a step up from my IP422W's and there are four different streams to chose from/configure with H.264, motion JPEG and MPEG4 compressions from which to choose.
Cons: In my opinion this is a major oversight on the part of TRENDnet: when an email is sent the MAC address is included in the subject line. Hello??? I'm no security pro but why would this need to be included?!? This could be a serious security implication. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!!!
Also, there is no GPIO trigger out. If this is the replacement for the 602 and 422 series why was it omitted?
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a worthy upgrade to the 602 and 422 series. The addition of new features is impressive. I had to take away two stars for the glaring oversight (or thinking it was ok) to include the MAC address in the email subject line. Fix it and I'll revise my review to five stars.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The few minutes I was able to use it, the picture quality seemed really good. IR came on only when it needed to which suggests that daytime viewing won't have the weird colors that other cameras do as their IR's stay on constantly, like my TrendNet. However, I do love my IP422W.
Cons: Stopped working the same day I bought it. I tried being patient with it by leaving it unplugged for a day or two then trying it again. It seemed like it wanted to power on but then just quit altogether. Oh well, sometimes you get a dud so I RMA'd it to try another. Fingers crossed... While I like the fact that the IR's turn on only when needed, their red glow just screams, "Look at me!" While my TrendNet's IR's stay on constantly, there is no glow.
Other Thoughts: Why does the black model cost more than the white model? I just never got that o_O.
There is a LTS corporate office in my area. I tried to call them to arrange an exchange even though I bought the camera here. My rational was that why should I go through Newegg when you're going to get the camera back anyway. Didn't work, alas.
This review is from: Burnout: Paradise Playstation3 Game
Pros: I've played the Burnout series of games since 2 and have always enjoyed them, but this is by far the best yet. There's so much to do and the crashes never get old. Downloadable content (so far) is great as well. Online play is near perfect-it suffers from an occasional hiccup but it's not too bad. You can play it all day!
Cons: No two-player mode except for online is a major omission! I hope all games aren't going this route.
Other Thoughts: To all those who say you can't add your own soundtrack: I've been playing my own music for months.
Transfer some tunes to your music folder. While your're cruisin the streets press right on the d-pad scroll, all the way down to the bottom to soundtrack and select custom.
