Samsung IP Cameras Versus Others

Anyone have an oppurtunity to compare Samsung's lineup against the likes of Vivotek, Avigilion, Arecont and the like in quality and support?

We haven't but we should. While Samsung started late and their offerings are not highly differentiated, their pricing is quite attractive, which makes them a player in the category you mention.

Readers, background on Samsung's recent low cost SD and MP cameras.

Related to this, with Avigilon and Arecont both releasing strong WDR offerings at low cost, this is going to make it harder for Samsung to compete (see our WDR 2013 shootout results).
