Pros and cons Review by Mike Saunders
Value for money
Ease of use
My order was delivered very quickly and the camera was well packed.

The reason for this purchase (DS-2CD2555FWD-IS) was to replace my old 3 megapixel Hikvision mini-dome camera (DS-2CD2532F-IWS) with this 5 megapixel camera as I wanted to have a better picture with more detail, and a stronger IR light for night time use.

Despite the extra pixels I was slightly disappointed to find that the day time picture quality is very similar to my old camera, which is to say OK, but nothing special. If you want another reference point an old 3 megapixel bullet camera DS-2CD2032-I has a slightly better picture than both these cameras.

However the things I liked about the camera were :
i) the reduced size of recordings through the use of the H.265 video format.
ii) the improved IR illumination at night
ii) better night time performance with a lot less noise. I used to get lots of random horizontal lines of noise on my old camera.

All told a decent camera. (Posted on 6 March 2019)
