Maximum PC - 8/10 Stars
“The DCS-5222L is a decently priced and decently featured IP camera. The installation is workable and the image quality and access are actually pretty reliable from either phone or web browser. The DCS-5222L’s best place is probably alongside others in a whole network of mydlink cameras.” Read more

"I also tried out the DCS-5222L, a 720p (1280-x-720-pixel) camera that offers true pan/tilt capability with a 360-degree range. No other vendor in the group offered cameras with similar features.” Read more
TestFreaks - 7.5/10 Stars

"This high-end security camera does not need to be professionally installed--you can place the camera anywhere in your office. The pan-and-tilt camera swivels for a 340-degree rotation to scan the premises. There’s a motion detector that can trigger and alert, night-vision support, and you can even tap into the surveillance feed from afar." Read more
