Like the Sharpness, wish it had Zoom. Review by Reversemidasman
Just finished installing this camera. Took awhile in following the quick installation booklet that was in the box, and had my router manual and CD as well. One important note, when you read the quick start booklet that is sort of folded up, read from left to right at the same level, don't read down and up and then down the next column when you read the instructions, its not written that way. Its left to right at the same level!!!! Other than that it took me a good 2-3 hrs to set up without the WPS. I mistakenly push the QSS button on my TP Link Wireless Routerr. They are not the same purpose. Don't do it. I had to resort to manual setup of the IP Camera per the manual instructions. I wish it was more plug and play than what the box said. Other than that it works great. At some point during the Installation I had to back out of the IP Cam Client software (using a PC) and then re-enter for it to complete the install. Minor inconvenience. The picture is sharp and the IR to switch automatically for dark situations works great. Only disappointment and its because I didn't notice when I purchase this model is that it does not zoom, yes pan and tilt, yes CRUISE (still not sure what the purpose of that is...). I also set up for remote viewing and that was pretty straight forward via the instructions. Oh almost forgot when setting up the IP camera you have to make sure its Ethernet cable in first per the instruction booklet. Then after doing that you have to then follow the instructions for how to do the wireless capability. I think it was there that I had to back out of the IP Cam Client software and then reenter that software so that I could see that was working in wireless mode. Or else you sit there looking at a black screen for a while. Tried the audio and speaker, ehh...too bad they couldn't be as clear as a SKPE connection but its still audible. I'm hoping they improve that too. Otherwise, very happy with the camera and its functions. (Posted on 9/15/14)

Great Cam, picture is quite nice Review by Gazingstock
I love my FI9831W. I picked one up to keep an eye on my front door while on vacation.
Very responsive, quality video and the ability to remote manipulate the camera position.
My only complaint is that I ordered 2 of them and one came broken (IR not working).
Hope they get more in stock soon! (Posted on 3/4/14)
