This review is from: H.264 Megapixel Network Outdoor Waterproof IP Camera POE Night Vision Free DDNS
Pros: none -- it doesnt work as advertised.
Cons: no DHCP (despite being advertised as such)
no HTTP (despite being advertised)
text based configuration tool on port 8080 crashes.
video stream from port 9001 is not in any known format (VLC cannot handle it).
big and bulky.
mechanical clunking sound (relay switch?).
Other Thoughts: I bought this megapixel IP camera which was advertised as
supporting HTTP and DHCP. In actuality, it supports
neither. The first camera I received was completely
DOA, and the seller replaced it. The replacement
came on the network using IP 192.168.1.137 even though
my network is 10.x.x.x. I sniffed and there was
no DHCP request. The camera has a few ports open,
but port 80 is not one of them, and none of the other
ports are HTTP. Port 8080 is a text based configuration
that crashes when you change anything. Port 9001 gives
a steady stream of binary data that looks like it
should be video data, but it is not in any format that
VLC or any of my other tools can recognize.
I requested a refund multiple times, but the seller refused.
I also bought the Asante megapixel camera for about the
same price, and the Asante works beautifully.
Pros: web based configuration,
lots of features,
reliable -- never needs to be rebooted
Cons: only 640x480
Other Thoughts: I've used 10 of these cameras over the last year, and have been very pleased with their reliability.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: the physical design of the keyboard is very nice.
It is a very sturdy keyboard that feels nice to type on.
Cons: Does not work with Linux. I have tried the kbd_mode and the xorg.conf settings, but I can only get it to partially work. The caps lock light fails.
Other Thoughts: It's a nice physical design. Too bad the firmware is not as well designed.READ FULL REVIEW
