Pros: Clear, H264 mp4 video stream. Acceptable edge distortion from wide-angle lens.
Cons: No documentation. A small card instructs you to read the user manual, but there is none included.
No extras. You get the camera, some mounting screws and some sort of cable cap (no idea what it is for). No power supply, no mention of polarity. Without PoE you need a 12VDC center positive power supply.
Firmware outdated, written for IE8 or IE9.
Other Thoughts: Don't know how ONVIF compliant it is, the "ONVIF Device Manager" software did not even detect the device.
A network scan found the camera on http://192.168.1.189 and I could log in as admin with no password.
It specifies to use Windows XP and IE, or Windows 7 "as administrator". There is a drop-down field which only has a "Non ActiveX" option. Google Chrome seems to work the same as IE11.
The UI has a lot of options, including PTZ, which do nothing.
I am using the camera with VLC, recording url "rtsp://192.168.1.189/ch01". No security or authentication.
Pros: Good balance between performance and price. Not a lot of junk to uninstall before putting it to work.
Slot on top acts as a convenient carrying handle.
Cons: No install media included.
Other Thoughts: Office use. Bought two so far, considering more.
The recovery partition on the hard drive will allow you to restore OS, but I find those to be inflexible and a waste of disk space.
Pros: Works well. Standard vesa mounts.
Cons: Fat black border and wide bezel makes it larger than necessary. No stylus.
Other Thoughts: This unit seems to be a cheapened version of the excellent 2230MW, but without a lower price.
The wide black border around the display makes swipe-in gestures easier, but when added to the thick plastic frame, it becomes too hefty.
Buying a separate stylus is not a great expense, but I miss the convenience of being able to store it in a recess on the monitor.
