Decent Picture - Poor Sound – 1/3 SONY CCD Waterproof Surveillance Security Camera with 20-LED Night Vision - White (DC 12V) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Build quality is very good on this unit. Included bracket is nice and sturdy. Picture is crisp, especially during the day. Make sure to invest a bit more and get a camera with at least 420 TV lines like this one.
Cons:
Sound is horrible unless you are really close to the camera. Mic also picks up a lot of background noise. It could be that mine is bad, but if you absolutely need sound, look at something else or perhaps get a dedicated mic. Night vision could also be better but it's not that bad at all. My other Jin cameras (SKU 59954) have more LEDs and slightly better night vision.
Other:
Took about 3 weeks to arrive but everyone knows that DX shipping can be slow. So far I've placed 5 orders with DX and all of them have gone smoothly so even though it takes a while, it's worth it.
Bottomline:
Good value. Very good build quality. Nice picture, but poor sound.
