Just poped in to PC world they had the D-link DCS-5300G in clearance at
£39.97.

http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=342

Its a discontinued model (sold around £350-400 in 2005) reasonable reviews

You also have the ability to remote control camera pan/tilt /zoom
Schedule recordings or motion detection.
I Don't think there is anything similar for less than £150.

Hope its of interest to someone.

Heat added, sounds good

Sounds interesting. Do you have the SKU number for this (should be printed on the receipt next to the item)?

Cheers,

Can't see any on the website ... what's the product code?

Sounds like another other those PCW 'deals' that is only available in random stores..

Great price if you can snatch one up, I'd love one - doubt I'll find one though.

Nice find. Thanks for sharing. Heat added.
#13
looks like this only supports WEP security which would put me of getting it (id rather stick with WPA)...

fantastic price if you are ok with WEP
#14
Yes, the WEP only put me off as well.
#15

I saw this this morning and as I was going past pcworld at junction 9 I called in. They had it labelled up for £120, and I asked if they could price check it for me- it came up at £49.97 so I thought it was a bargain at that so had it. It was the only one they had on show on the clearance section. Thanks to OP.
#19
Have any of you actually tried cracking WEP? Get kismet or aircrack and give it a go... Just add mac filtering as well and I am sure for domestic low reward stuff you will not be hacked.

Ok different if you are a company have anything sensitive...

where?
#21
Thanks for this, just called into PC World and got the last one.
Wouldn't let WEP put you off , there is a flaw in WPA which makes it just as easy to crack..
My nearest neighbour is half a mile a way so I don't think I will loose any sleep..
#22
where abouts though, might save me a trip? also what section did you find it in? the clearance or on the shelf?


cheers

Lisburn, Northern Ireland, probably not local too most people here, It was in the clearance section in the middle of the floor.

This also has a wired connection so you can turn the wireless off if you are worried about MI5 breaking in to your network..;-)

**edit**
I have just downloaded the latest firmware and it now also supports WPA encryption.
#24
Gutted!!!!!!!!!!!!

thecheekymonkey
where?


junction 9 is what the branch is called, I should have elaborated. Its junction 9 M6 so next to the big ikea and RAC on the M6 in birmingham.

Well it looks like mine doesn't work properly anyway, am torn between just taking it back for my money back or sending it off to d link for them to mend it. For some reason it won't move around remotely, by either the infra red remote or the web based browser. Very annoying, as it looks really good other than that.

After a 5 minute browse on the tubes, it seems that the firmware can be updated to allow different security types (assuming that they are the revision b models).

As per http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=342&pv=91&sec=0

it's not an official answer as i couldn't find the tech spec sheet for the latest firmware version; but the website does say "- Add support for spaces when using WPA-PSK".

does anyone know the revision number?
I hope this helps those people who were put of with only being able to use WEP.
#27
Mine is ver B2. But also broken :-(
#28
have a look for a firmware fix. you never know....
#29
Mine is revision B2 and with the latest firmware has WPA support.
However I'm not that impressed with the image quality, looks pretty ****.
Glad I didn't spend £500 :o
#30
Let me check tomorrow :D

thanks for this - do you happen to know if its WPA or WPA2 ? WPA is prob good enough but just curious.

wpa will be more than good enough, as far as i am aware wpa / wpa2 is only succeptible to dictionary attacks.


so if you use "john smith" as your key / pass phrase your fuxed.


however, just randomly generate a key like so "dsaj3498fdmn43ui" and you`ll be fine.


incidently, the chances of you being hacked are quite remote, trust me, even for someone to crack your wep keys is pretty unlikely, and for you to be unlucky enough for someone who has the knowledge to be able to perform a sustained attack on a wpa/2 key , the chances are even more unlikely.


plus the fact that just because someone has followed a few tutorials on cracking the odd wep key, what they do once thay have access to the network can be more difficult that gettiong into it.

I practice the odd bit of pentesting myself , so know what goes into it.

it can and does happen, but the chances of it happeneing top you are small. :D

Just phoned the pcw call centre and they told me my local stores (Hull) had no stock.. Thought I would pop in anyway to get a laptop bag. Saw the camera on their shelf priced at £150.. Thought I'd double check the price with staff and sure enough down to £49.97.

Laptop bag priced at £40 down to £20 at the till and also bought the BT VP1000 alarm for £15.
Bargains!
#34
No stock of this is locatable on DSGs internal system.........
#35
Any body got one and dont want it let me know i will take it at that price plus P&P i am in the Birminhgham Area
#36
Just picked up 2 in Cardiff, priced up as 119.97 but rung up as 49.97, bargain!!!
