3.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect and at an unbelievable price., 7 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Finesight RC8021 professional Wireless IP Camera with iSpy software, MOTION DETECTION TRIGGERED RECORDING AND ALERTS,multiple camera viewing, Network Video Recorder, iPad/iPhone support - BEST FUNCTIONALITY SURVEILLANCE CAMERA ON AMAZON (Electronics)
The good:

The build of these is very good even at 4 x the price.
Includes an ethernet cable.
Stand is sturdy and offers a few options for mounting.
Privacy button (this and the power/network lights can be turned off) is nice.
2 way audio might be useful for some.
MJPEG image quality was okay for this level of camera - same as all VGA cameras I've used.
The Wifi setup was very easy and connected to my LAN without a hitch - unlike Y-Cam I've used in the past.

The not so good:

Documentation relies on you knowuing a little about networking - same as with all ip webcams.
MPEG-4 Video quality is pretty poor whenever there is movement in the frame - lots of blockiness. BTW I had to hunt for the URL for the MPEG4 feed. It's not in the supplied documentation but it is: rtsp://IPADDRESS:554/img/video.sav. There is some good info on the ispyconnect website.
Couldn't get the browser based video to work. Tried IE 8,9,10, Chrome and Safari, PC and iPhone. The only way I could get the MJPEG feed was to use SightHound or iSpyConnect.
Power cable is a bit short but at least the DC adapter is quite compact.

I really wanted to view the feed with my iPhone as I do for my other Y-Cams but just couldn't get it to work. I have sent these back and will probably buy another (much more expensive unfortunately) Y-Cam. That said, other reviewers have not complained about the same thing so I still recommmend giving them a try.
