        Comments about Clover Electronics HDC238 Day/Night Dome Camera:

        I purchased 4 different camera models to evaluate for use in a home security camera system. I like the dome form factor vs a bullet type camera (looks better). The colors were the best of the 4 but this was the only day/night cam without LED lighting. The AGC adjusts pretty well to low light conditions and frankly most places have enough scatter lighting at night that you don't benefit from LEDs, in fact in many cases the LEDs in the other cameras I tested made things worse. The resolution of this camera was the only disappointment, it seemed more like a 480 than a 550. If it were not for that I would have given it 5 stars. My opinion is this is a very good camera and would work well in most conditions – all except very dark environments. If you don't need high resolution then get this one.
