X10 Quality - I wouldn't buy their products again...
« on: January 20, 2005, 03:23:39 PM »

Quality of hardware is poor (signals
interfere w/ wireless LAN, don't travel
through walls, get lost frequently).
Software is poor (only works intermittently,
crashes Win2k).  Customer service is
terrible (waiting a month for an RMA, still
waiting on account credited, don't log
calls, always wait on hold).  I would not
recommend buying their products.  My 2 cents.

I think people who read these messages should
balance it with others who have used X10
products successfully.  Yes I have had
problems with quality using X10 products in
my household that utilizes lots of RF devices
(e.g. LAN's, etc.).  So I simpy disabled the
wireless, and utilized the hard-wired video
feature in conjunction with the wireless
controls.  I have to say, so far X10 provides
the best bang for the buck when using the
products in this fashion.  I also have had no
problems returning devices that failed, so in
my opinion I think the drastic claims made
here not to use X10 products were from users
needing usage guidance

I don't know what some people are looking
for, but for the price I have know problem
with x10. If you want better well put the
money out other wise get off the pot.
They have better if you want to pay.
I spent less then $300.00 and I can see my
dogs in the yard and my cars at night and
know when someone is at my front door
before they get there.

Got Rma # in less then 24 hours in e-mail
and credit back in two days. One of my cams
is on the dark side of a barn and signal is
great.

I have had no significant problems with X10
products so far. I have used their products
for over 5 years. I purchased Automation,
Security and Camera equipment and the quality
is not bad for the amazingly low prices.
Everything was always promptly received and
works as advertised. I never had to return
anything and never had problems with the
installation, but some installation
procedures could be better written and
sometimes in more details. If I needed
something better then I would shop elsewhere
and pay considerably more.

My experience is the same - sofware crashes
computer - Lots of time with tech people and
updates didn't help. Customer Service IS
terrible.

I don't complain very often but this
company's customer service is very bad.I
have 3 x10 cameras and the vcr2 commander
along with the motion sensor and I am so
disappointed with this product.I will not
recommend any off my friends or coworkers
to buy from this company ever.

Sorry you feel that way. I have found for
what I paid it works great for me, know it
is not a $1000.00 unit it is a $100.00 one
and you have to use your brain a little to
make it all work. 8 units up and running
and three pan/tilt. You know you only see a
very small part of who buys from here and
most not all could not even plug in a
toaster. If I looked at every thing like
some of the people who write here, well I
would have to pass on buying a car,TV's,and
such. Sorry but  Prefectsville is not real.
