This review is from: D-Link Xtreme N Dual-Band Gigabit Router (DIR-825) Wireless N600
Pros: I had this over 4 years, it even ran dd-wrt fine.
Cons: After 4 years the 5GHz radio died.
Other Thoughts: 4 years ago this was a real nice dual-band gigabit AP. Time has moved on, many better a/b/g/n ones now for a lot less money.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Very sharp 720 daylight video. The best cheap IP Camera video I have seen. Picks up sound well. Has a free android app and works with at least some ONVIF tools. IPv6 compatible.
Night black and white still images are well lit.
Cons: The main viewer requires a .msi (windows only) install. So worse than the flakey java viewer they used to use. Some of the config options also need the .msi.
The black and white night video strobes badly. It seems to pulse on a 3 second cycle, hard to watch, so i just grab stills at night.
I could not get the speaker to work.
Direct URLs to the image capture and video streams not documented.
Other Thoughts: I use VLC to view the video.
I had to buy a new camera since TRENDnet does not support their old IP cameras very well. I bet they do not suport this one well going forward.
So expect to throw this away the next security problem happens.
I woulda given this just 3 stars, but all other camers under $200 are worse.
Hard to blame TRENTnet that the ONVIF spec is so bad...
