Rated 2.4 out of 5�by 5 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5�by Garbage Unreliable garbage, DO NOT BUY! BEWARE! May 17, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5�by Only works with few low end DLink cameras I bought this with a 850L and then a 5092L. It only recognizes and works with our old 942L. Dlink needs to list the cameras this will work with OR make it compatible with all the cameras they make.. 2/5, would be 5/5 if it worked with other DLink cameras. April 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5�by Great solution Does the job very well and it's easy to install / use. Real time recording is what I was looking for. I have 3 interior cameras and one exterior camera under management of the DNR-202L so I can see who's coming home and exactly when while I am away. . The fact that it is a standalone unit (not running on a pc) is a major plus since you can hide it anywhere. If someone break in, they might run with the pc but they will never see my DNR unit. March 14, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5�by Good idea, needs to be perfected The idea of a compact, inexpensive NVR that uses user selectable storage is great. The features available, if working, would make this a nice way to monitor your cameras and motion events from anywhere. Unfortunately, I could never get enough of the features to work and in the end returned the unit. In its place, the D-Link IP camera has most of the features without the NVR and is more reliable. What worked on DNR-202L: Automatic recording of the camera video and audio stream. What didn't work: Taking snapshots or video clips and selecting where to save. Also, accurately selecting the time segment to view from a recording. The time selected was different from the actual time of the recording the unit would play. At one point the unit would not take the correct password, even after reboot. This product is probably worth another look in one or two years assuming the bugs have been worked out. February 18, 2015

  • Capture Every Moment While You're Away

    Never miss a moment with the DNR-202L Network Video Recorder (NVR). The DNR-202L supports up to four mydlink-enabled cameras and offers recording options for M-JPEG, MPEG4, or H.264 files. This gives you a storage option of adding up to two attached USB hard disks.
