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.
First of all when I went to write a review I could not understand how this camera has a 4.5 star rating so I went on to read many of the reviews only to find that most of the reviews are not for this 5mp camera. The reviews are for other models. Very sneeky of this company. A technique used my many unethical companies on Amazon. This is accomplished by selling several completely different cameras on same page. So that right there should be a warning sign. If you filter out all of the junk reviews you will find the 5mp camera is not so favorable. My honest review: I have owned many cameras and just like other reviewers I found this camera almost impossible to set up while my SV3C cameras set up in minutes. I don't even know how I lucked upon the very unusual address it has. It took a long time and much frustration to get set up. Second - while the picture is decent quality I find that I can not see any difference between the 3mp camera right next to it ....none at all except that it is not in wide screen format - I didn't catch that one by the 2592 x 1944 advertised which would have told me If I had paid attention. And finally because I was rushing through the purchase I did not realize that I picked the camera without sound. So sad. So just waiting for this camera to fail so I can replace it with what I really wanted, A 4k cam with sound.
I have had this camera up for a couple months and am very unhappy with it. The camera goes out of focus every day or two and needs to be rebooted. The image is decent but not as good as the ancient amcrest I had up before. If the camera were in an easier to access location I would have replaced it already.
