D-Link DCS-5300 Review
 
The camera is excellent. I have retail stores 50 miles from me and I can watch my employees while I control the movement of the camera from my PC at home. There is no DVR necessary as the software is in the camera. It will move almost 360 degrees. However, be careful about which vendor you use. I have purchased 6 of these and the last two were older models although the model numbers were the same.

Stay Away
 
We had a DCS-900 for several years. Other than the occasional re-boot never had an issue. This was the replacement. Right away we never could get 33 of 36 computers to be able to access it (all 36 worked fine with the DCS-900). Technical support was a joke, "lower the security on the computers and remove the old activeX object installed by the DCS-900". Turning off security didn't help (like we were going to do that for any length of time). We couldn't find and they couldn't say what the a...

Good and bad of DCS-5300
 
2) The cameras are not really low light and do not work well with IR emitters. I tired one brand of emitter and it was useless, I returned the emitter.3) They don't work relly well in high contrast, faces against a bright window.

Works well enough
 
This was to replace my old D-Link 6620 camera which just quit working eafter about 1 year. I figured why spend a fortune if they don't last. This one is clearly a lower quality camera in every way. The lack of an auto focus, or even a way to focus it from my PC, makes it nearly impossible to set up properly. The low light ability is not as good either. All I can say is it works...for now.

Nice Camera shame about the IP software.
 
The camera is a nice design, fair quality image and easy to set up.The enclosed web-based software from Dlink is nice and easy to handle and does the job cleanly and simply.Exactly what you want from a home or small office camera system to monitor activity.However, I purchased the cameras (2) because of the description of the IP security suite that was supposed to come with it, allowing 16 cameras to be monitored and recorded simultaneously.Rubbish....! The software was terrible and recording j...

I love the features and ease of use. The new firmware fixed the issues we had with the camera. The motors don't seem very robust however. I've had mine for a year and the motor has gone out twice. Their surveillance software would never work right for me but it's a great webcam when it works.

okay when it works
 
The DCS-5300 only works with Internet Explorer, which is okay.The DCS-5300 lets you remotely control the camera, which is okay.The DCS-5300 reboots itself every 24 hours from when you plugged it in, which is okay.My DCS-5300 doesn't always respond to the remote control requests, which is not okay, but it will reboot in 24 hours and some times that fixes this problem, so that makes it okay.It's just okay. For $250, I wanted more than okay.

work well, durability issues.
 
I bought 2. VERY pleased with setup and operation. After 2 years, one of the PTZ motors stopped working. I would LOVE these cams if they lasted longer. One feature that I cant live without is that I can view the cams on my Windows Mobile cellphone. Had to use a 3rd party application, [...]
