To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I guess you get what you pay for. Chrome doesn't work at all. Android app is very hit or miss. Would much rather have a small number of features that actually work, then the numerous features that sometimes work.
The Amcrest Surveillance Pro (which hasn't been updated in over 4 years) is garbage. You can't record more than 30 minutes at a time, the software just stops recording. Even though the software says it's recording. Recorded all day only to find out I had 30 minutes of video. The interface is horrendous. Saved videos are in a proprietary format so you need Amcrest's other awful software to view the video.
Only buy these cameras if you plan on using other software. Also, there's a new firmware that forces the Amcrest logo in the corner of recorded videos.
The design of the camera's use of an SD card, as others have noted, is extremely poor. It requires surgery to get at the slot - and that slot is very delicate -- there is no confirmation that the card is set until you put everything back together and run a test -- I have 5 of these cameras and they usually do NOT set the first attempt. Amcrest really dropped the ball on this model. Would recommend staying clear from this model.
