Lee, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Unlike my previous similar looking unit this one works reliably. I have it on wifi and almost everything just works. A bit of a fiddle to access it remotely (had to setup a port forward in my router).
Bad points:
Colours are a little off… dark hair becomes purple.

While on the same network video was fine but listening to the audio from the webcam on my mac had almost a minute delay! I'm guessing it would have been better with a pc.

Graham, Norwich Veteran IT geek

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Smart design. Great web client with good features, configurable for different levels of access (admin, control, observer).
Great image in darkness with IR lighting on.
Good options for alerting on movement or noise detection.
Option to add speakers and microphone a nice touch.
Bad points:
Setting up remote from outside potentially a challenge to anyone not familiar with TCP/IP.
Control difficult over slow connection.
IR LEDs visible when lit (not sure if this is usual), so not great for stealth observing.
Can't turn LEDs on automatically in response to noise detection, so have to be on all the time for alerting in the dark.
