Pros: Lots of operational modes.
Very easy to configure.
Stable so far.
Seems to have good range.
Cons: LED labels are on the bottom, but there's only 4, so you can memorize them!
Ethernet ports are 10/100, but after all, it's a $33 router.
Other Thoughts: Bought this for the WISP mode, as we needed to create a secure internal network that's connected to a public wireless network. Took about 5 minutes to get it up and configured. CD and Ethernet cable are provided, but neither was required. Just plug it in and make a wireless connection with your browser. Has all the features we needed; security, SSID without broadcasting, ability to use a specific sub-net range, dedicated DHCP addresses, etc. You can download the owner's manual from their web-site so you'll know what you're getting.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hikvision DS-2CD2132-I Outdoor HD 3MP IP Dome Security Camera 4mm
Pros: A compact waterproof camera that provides a great picture and lots of versatility. The IR works well for night pictures, and the motion detection is very good.
Cons: This camera is built for the Chinese market. If you update the firmware from the American Hikvision website, the unit will be "bricked". Hikvision told me "Too bad for you - NewEgg is an unauthorized retailer and we offer NO support". KVision Security simply ignored my e- mails. If you want this camera, pay a little more and buy from an authorized dealer.
Other Thoughts: Thanks to help of some very clever people on the Internet and a lot of time, I was able to get my camera working again (on an older firmware version). I think Hikvision's expectation that the customer should police their distribution channels is unreasonable, to say the least.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: A nice compact package for personal or light duty office use.
Cons: The setup is clumsy. (Does everybody really want the "Shop at HP" program on their desktop?). The wireless connection is unreliable (see below).
Other Thoughts: I have deployed three of these in small office environments. One works perfectly, but the other two loose connection to the wireless network after printing (not every time), and have to be powered down and back up numerous times each day. I've tested them on several different networks which are stable for all other devices but loose contact with this printer. Seems to be a fairly common problem. HP is of no help at all, preferring to blame the network. I'll continue to use them with the USB interface and hope HP provides a firmware update that solves the problem.READ FULL REVIEW
