    This security camera does a good job for the money. I actually mounted it indoors to monitor the main living space of our home with a digital DVR programed in motion detection mode. The picture quality is okay for what I need it to do, easy to recognize people, but the colors are washed out, and I would be a lot happier if this unit had a better wide angle view. The night vision works really well with my application, probably due to the limitation of the indoor space, but the microphone is really weak, have to turn the system volume almost all the way to hear. All in all I’m happy with this product (you get what you pay for). I’m thinking about getting another one for the patio area, the unit is pretty well built, I believe it would work well outdoors. As always Amazons price and service is great, gotta like that free shipping.

    We decided to buy a surveillance camera after my mom’s car kept getting vandalized and flat tires. We didn’t have much money. and after looking here on Amazon. This camera seemed like the best choice..

    The package came with the camera, an 100 foot cable,and manual..The picture quality is very very good for a $40 camera. The picture is very clear during the day. and still pretty good during nighttime. You just need to angle the camera right. We took the spring off of our window and left the window open a crack so we can point the camera facing outside towards our car. With the spring in the way nothing was visible. which was a disappointment

    Another disappointment was that the camera isn’t very discreet. I thought,yeah it looks a little big,but we can probably hide it pretty well. We can hide it pretty well,but red little lights shine off of it(they’re on the lens). This can be kind of obvious especially at night time.

    The good this is you can connect the camera into any TV with RCA inputs. Or you can do it the way I do and plug it into a capture card and record onto your computer.The cheapest capture card your can get is $9 off of ebay. I recommend this setup for anyone low on cash & looking for a surveillance camera.

    Easy cap comes with recording software for your computer.First install the easy cap on to your computer. After, plug the camera’s output cables into the easy cap and record. We do this over night. you can set the video quality to be good or a lower resolution (to save up computer space since the files are big). We then look through the videos the next day and delete them off of our computer.

    The mic on the cam works good. But I can’t really say much else about it. Easy cap doesn’t capture the sound well. that seems to be the worst down side to it.

    Decent camera for 40 dollars.

    If I ever get a chance to. I will upload video quality of the camera so you all can get a look.

    4 out 5 stars

    These cameras have a pretty good picture, But they are not threaded correctly if you want to use a tripod, Also the sound quality is very poor!

    But for the price its worth it

    I chose 2 day shipping and it arrived on the 2nd day 9/29/09 outside my front door. I wanted to put this camera outside, but have problems where to install it because my house is built concrete wall and where to put the camera and wires. I first tested camera on top of the stair railing where I can see the pathway leading to the stairs with sensor light. I put duct tape on camera and had the wires dangling outside all the way to my bedroom where I put a damn hole on my screen. Someone can disconnect the wires and steal the camera. The colors are not perfect like my black shirt is baby blue same as some green. The night vision works okay, but have a little light where you put this thing like sensor light outside. The mic works, but you have to turn up the tv volume so high to hear conversations. I decided to put this camera in the garage facing the path leading to my bedroom and had the wires go to my bedroom to the tv. I can see the bathroom and going in the doorway that leads to the family room. I hear my sisters talking in the garage and see my cat all the time. The camera came with 3 small screws with anchors and the ac adaptor with 100 feet cable. The cable wires are small like the computer mouse. I have to find a way to put this monitor outside. I wish you the best in ordering the camera.

    Sometimes you get a bargain, sometimes you really do get what you pay for. This camera is an example of the latter.

    The biggest issue is with the light sensor. It can’t seem to decide if it’s day or night – even in the middle of the day. Sometimes moving objects in the frame will appear black and white, while the rest of the screen is color. It also takes far too long to switch to night mode, so, until it does, the night quality is poor.

    At all times there seemed to be a good amount of noise in the video. During the day, it was minimal, but at night things go very grainy. There were also bands interference running through the image, something the camera I replaced this one with in the same spot did not exhibit.

    I gave it two stars instead of one only because the overall picture was better than some cameras I’ve tested. Despite the noise and banding, the image through that was sharp. The LEDs also did a commendable job of providing illumination in the immediate area of the camera view, though the range is not particularly far.

    So, if all you really want is a cheap camera to watch for intruders, delivery people or customers entering your store, it will do the job. It just won’t do it with the quality of something more expensive. If you need to really be able to get an accurate look at what is going on out there for potential criminal prosecution, step up to something better and don’t waste your time or money with this one.

    This is a good cam for the price. The only down fall is it only has about 60 degrees of veiw. If you plan on putting this somewhere and you want to see up close do not get it. five feet infront of my truck and all you can see is the windshield. If i point it at the house next door( about 200ft) you can see there whole house and yard.

    The image on the website made me interpret the camera to look larger than the camera actually is. It’s quite small which I actually preferred. It’s light. A little bigger than a can of soda. The power cable has a good length to it, from the front of my house wired to the back. I hang it outside underneath an awning, no problems in the rain. It has outlets for various video modes. With a converter I can connect it to the PC and save videos to my harddrive. I can connect it to my TV and record on VHS or DVD.

    The video quality is not so great. But hey the price is right. It makes a good camera to see who or what’s outside. The video color is distorted, meaning my red shirt shows yellow. As for licenses plates, you won’t make them out clearly or capture them clearly. As for a super clear shot of someone’s face, it’s a little grainy even from under 10 yards. You will recognize neighbors and friends but not strangers. It’s a basic camera. From my house window and five more feet out you can catch the side walk and a little bit of the street. The sound quality is not so great. At night you cannot see anything except glowing eyes, shadows and only a little detail if someone is infront of a light source. If you’re looking for a low priced and basic camera go for it, if you’re looking for high tech security, I suggest spending a little more money elsewhere.

    There were numerous times I had to mess with the settings and reinstall the drivers to get the video going again because it stops. Overall I give this a 1.9 out of 5 stars.

    WORKS FINE INSIDE AND OUT, CLOSE-UP OR TO VIEW A WALK WAY OR A YARD, SUPER. FOR WHAT IT COST I AM SUPER PLEASED ALL AROUND, NIGHT VISION FINE. SOUND AND QUALITY OK FOR ME. I THINK PEOPLE EXPECT MILITARY GRADE EQUIPMENT BUT NEED TO BE REASONABLE FOR THE AMOUNT OF COST OF THIS UNIT. PRICE FOR VALUE IS THERE AND AM BUYING THREE MORE, I AM THAT HAPPY. THANK YOU!!!

    I never buy a product without reviews however this camera was reviewed on another website at 4 stars. I came here as the price was [...]better.

    First let me say I am a complete noob at CCTV and I simply got this out of more curiosity than security hence the lowest price camera I could find.

    Let me say this little camera is worth its weight in gold. Of course it could be due to the fact that I wasn’t expecting much “you get what you pay for” not so with this little gem. It’s a great picture!

    It’s certainly works best during the day but the night vision isn’t worthless. The day picture is clear and though the colors are a bit off green looks more like baby blue, you can certain see what’s going on. It also gets a great angle view as I have mine set up in the hallway and can see half of my kitchen and all of my living room, front door and entrance to my office. All in all about 16 x 20 area.

    The night vision is grainy at best but eh “you get what you pay for” in this category lol. You can still make out images but just imagine it with snow.

    I have bought 2 and I will certainly grab two more as my DVR card holds up to four. Of course this isn’t a Vegas eye in the sky but I believe you will be pleased. I will update a few pictures once I get them all up and running.

    Happy Buying

    This camera is great for the price – my problem is with the length of cable from the back of the camera to where is separates into audio, video and power jacks. IF they had this cable a few inches longer before it splits (the small think black cable) it would be a lot easier to fit into the corners of doors. As is, the jacks are where the door and jamb meet, meaning the two RCA jacks, and power jack interfere with the door. A few inches longer, and there would be no problem routing the small single thin cable before it splits. I contacted the mfr before purchasing, and they said the cable is 6″. True, but mount takes about an inch of that. If you go through a wall, you need to have a hole large enough to fit the RCA jacks (1 at a time + cable) as the cable to the back of the camera is not removable. Overall, a good price for the weatherproof camera, 100 ft cable and power supply.
