In a word: disappointing
 
The camera itself it not that bad. The design is ok. It's about like most typical Linksys products: ok documentation (but not great), so-so user interface but generally gets the job done. Initial setup is only mildly frustrating (the camera could not initially communicate with my Linksys router, which you'd think they might test back at the lab...) The fatal flaw with this camera is the SoloLink DDNS service. If you're not familiar with DDNS, it basically allows you to hook up the camera to your...

Bigger than it looks.
 
The image quality of this camera isn't great, and as the other reviewer states, it needs lots of light. The resolution of the video is fairly poor, comparable to a very cheap 4-year-old webcam. If you need to see detail in the image (e.g. for certain security-camera purposes), then it will not work.Another thing to note is that this camera is much bigger than it looks--it is about the size of your hand. I was hoping to squeeze it into a tight space, but the camera's size took me by s...

Startlingly bad video quality,
 
Linksys products are usually high quality. This is sadly not the case with the WVC54GC Internet Video Camera. I just finished testing mine, and I'll be returning it tomorrow. I'd rate it zero stars if that was allowed.Do NOT buy this product! I have tried several brands of standalone netcams and the image produced by this Linksys camera is by far the worst -- it is shockingly poor. Take a look at the "Customer Image" I've uploaded (click just below the main product image) and judge f...

Nice Cam for a very good price
 
This camear is the lowest price I can find on the makret today with 802.11g and 802.3 10/100 connectivity. The setup is pretty straightforward. It did not come with any printed documentation. That's why I dropped 1 point at ease of use area. The only thing that I looked up from the documentation was the default IP address and admin password of this thing. Once that's found, the rest of the installation was very straightforward. Featurewise, this device supports 802.3 wired network connectio...

Crippled webcam
 
I bought this based on my experiences with linksys products, but this is a piece of junk. It only works with activex with internet explorer, and only works over the internet with linksys' ddns service (free for ninety days and after that you pay for the life of the product). Doesn't work with IE7. Very sorry I bought it.

Only ActiveX? Are you kidding?
 
Linksys seems to be living in the last decade. This camera can only be observed remotely with an ActiveX capable browser, in other words, Internet Explorer.What this means: NO Macintosh, NO Firefox, NO Flock...To make it worse, the ActiveX control has an expired certificate, which means you can't install it without tweaking the default security settings in the browser.Come on Linksys, you can do better!!!! How about Flash based video, or quicktime, or Windows ...

VERY disappointing
 
DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA. I have come to know Linksys as a maker of quality products, but this camera shakes those thoughts.My #1 disappointment is the software. We bought the camera to record motion detection. That works okay if you never reboot. Every time you reboot your PC you lose all those settings. Ridiculous!!!Tech support is AWFUL. What a joke! Finally after two months, this is what they have to say: "We apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused ...

HOW TO VIEW THE VIDEO UNDER MAC OS !!!
 
this is very easy, just write the camera's IP address, add /img/video.asf and thats all !! works great with VLC for Mac OS !!... example: if your camera is on 192.168.1.101, then use whatever video program like quicktime, VLC, windows media...etc and open the following address: 192.168.1.101:1024/img/video.asfnote: the 1024 is the open port for the camera.

Good for the price. Excellent for what it is.
 
I received mine last Friday. Wireless works great, but it also has a wired jack, which you use to set it up, which worked my first try. Wireless works great. Power cord is about 6ft long which securely snaps onto the back of the camera. Unplug it move it another room and its back up in a few seconds.It does need a lot of light. The exposures settings don't seem make a lot of difference. No audio. The streaming video is decent. You can change the size, and quality to affect ban...

Terrible
 
Image is terrible and totally unviewable in low light. Don't waste your money on this cam. Linksys should refund everyone who has bought one of these.
