Pretty Good Indeed
Pros: Very excellent video quality in all lighting. Video and Picture options on either the MiniDV or the SD Card. "Easy" button for best picture in any light.
Cons: Video upload is only though Firewire not USB. Hissing in the background from humming of video, not able to remove even on 12-channel audio.
Overall Review: Just little minor issues that doesn't change the overall awesomeness of this camera.
Pros: perfect size for a 17" laptop, two fans for extra circulation, rubber pads on the bottom and on top for laptop
Cons: power switch is extremely sensitive and finiky. Mine had to be in the perfect place or it wouldn't work.
Overall Review: look for a different cooler
Pros: Awesome! I got four of these for our church. The first two are on opposite side of the sanctuary, about 60'-75' from the wireless router and they work perfectly. The other two are in an office and the entrance of the church about 40'-50' from the router, they have 2 walls (with steel studs) to go through and they disconnect every now and then, but they come back on and keep recording
Cons: To get facial recognition you need the camera about 10' away, 15 max, any further and you only going to see the basic fuzzy shape of a person. When cameras disconnect from router you may have to go in and manually reset the time and date.
Overall Review: Motion Sensors are amazingly awesome! Connected to WEP, WPA, and WPA2 just fine no problems.
Took forever to get set up
Pros: Awesome case, seems very sturdy
Cons: Took 3 computers and 2 hours to finally format the drive. it kept shutting off. it finally formatted, but i am not confident it will stick. everytime i tried to format it would either shut off or XP just couldn't complete the format.
The Remote Didn't Work
Pros: They transistion between all the inputs just fine
Cons: The remote didn't work, but i got a cheap universal remote and that worked just fine. when going between inputs it has a staticy transistion.
Overall Review: The remote does not come with batteries and you need two AAA
