    That picture with the banana, altoids, calculators and dolls is the creepiest image I've ever seen in a tech review. Congratulations!

    Why would a technical review of a product promote one particular vendor of said product? Reply

    They have linked to vendors in previous reviews that tell you where to buy it. If they dont want to thats fine, I was just trying to save people a step from having to Google our name, find the product, etc. Reply

    Only use I see for these things is security surveillance. Image quality looks WAY above minimum needed for that. Set it up to only record when it detects movement to save space and back it up to hard drives for later review. Still, I've seen whole systems for 200 bucks that include a DVR and 8 cameras. 1 Camera for that price is insane.

    Maybe there's another niche use for networked cameras I haven't imagined? Probably, people do crazy stuff with camera's and tech.

    Actually for these types of cameras with comparable features these are very affordable. Most cameras with all of these features would cost you 3-4x that. The types of systems you are speaking of dont have things like email notifications, movement detection, and monitoring via cell phone just to name a few things. Reply

    Those $200 systems suck! As someone who has setup these cameras you do not want to go cheap, it just means they will fail or something else will go wrong. As they say, "time is money" you will find this out fast if you cheap out on security cameras, you will constantly be driving to and from the place of work to reset the camera or to make sure they are working, and good luck getting a usable picture in court...
    PS: $200 is cheap for a security camera, the cheapest you really want to spend is around $400, going up to $2000 per camera...

    There seems to be a word or two missing on page 5:
    "so this is something we are not entirely about with the Compro IP 70"
