The camera is not restricted to 320x240 (VGA) level.

The ease of use, and its proclivity for dropping connections and non-standard NAS recording format makes it pretty useless for my needs.

If you call the number, be prepared to wait about an hour before you actually reach a person.

The specs on this camera looked quite good. One of the things I really liked was the built in thermometer that displays the room temperature along with the time and date (if selected) on a small banner on the image. I ended up returning the camera because of setup issues and nearly non-existent support. After waiting on hold for nearly an hour I was number 18 (I started at 32) in the queue and the automated attendant said my wait would be over an hour.
I gave the camera a 3 star rating because it does have some cool features and others may not mind the short comings that I had issue with.

Pros:
720 HD video
Sensitive mic for audio
Built in thermometer
IR cut filter (better night performance)
On-board storage VIA microSD card

Cons:
No tech support unless you register the camera providing all personal information.
Tech support has very long wait times.
Set up seems to require you to use Lorex's cloud video server, (privacy issues?) I was able to access the cameras setup menu using a browser but never could get to view video in the browser. I also read that Internet Explorer is required because of the need for Active X. No FireFox, Safari, Chrome, etc. I was able to view the cameras video using the provided, proprietary L-View software.
The IR illuminator is not very bright so distance is limited at night.
The lens is not very wide angle (this could be good or bad depending on your needs).

I have two other IP cameras that I use (different brands) and haven't had nearly the set up trouble I had with this one. I fully admit that the set up issues are likely due to my preference to not use the Cloud and not use Internet Explorer. I prefer to keep my camera's video on my local network not streaming around the internet. Maybe there's a way to do that but I couldn't get through to Tech support to ask the question.

following my original review, i've also posted lorex's response and correction below:

this is not an HD camera
this is not an HD camera
this is not an HD camera
allow me to clarify;

among the features, this camera has remote view capability using their custom program on either a smartphone or a pc. in either case you get to choose the image quality in one of four resolutions:

320x240 (QVGA)
640x480 (VGA)
1024x768 (XGA)
1280x800 (WXGA/HD)

of course you would always want to choose the highest resolution, why else would you pay the extra money to buy an HD camera, right? so far so good.

the problem is when recording to the SD memory card it will ONLY record the video in 320x240. that's right, in the lowest, grainy, can't recognize any faces resolution. what this means is that if you ever have to review your security video recordings, you won't be able to recognize any faces or any other details that would help identify anything. you may as well be staring through a frosted window smeared with grease.

when i contacted lorex support through their online form, they replied with a generic response and closed my ticket. this forced me to call them on the phone. the first person who answered the call tried to get me to change the resolution in the pc/smartphone app. when i explained i wanted to be able to RECORD video in HD, she put me on hold for a while and then introduced her supervisor. the supervisor explained that the recording capability was limited to the lowest resolution in order to 'save space' on the memory card. when i explained that i've purchased a 32gigabyte memory card specifically to be able to store plenty of HD video, she said it was still not possible.

I bought the 3 pack of the LNC 216. I initially set them up wirelessly. They worked perfect. I later hard wired them just...because.
I have them pointed to my 3 entryways. I found the farther back in the room they are the more they catch. I have them networked to a 1 TB WD My Cloud NAS. I have accessed them from my smart phone and used the 2 way mic. Worked perfect. Even set off the alarm remotely to scare the cats. My bride didn't see the humor.
I plan on getting 3 more for other areas.

This is a great little IP Camera.

It sets up so easy. I set this one up with just my IPhone 5s.
Lorex has a great video online explaining how to set up this camera.

The software that comes with this camera is also great. it supports 16 cameras as opposed to the old software that supported 4.

You can record directly to the camera itself with a micro SD card. Or to the iPhone or to a computer that is hooked up to your network. This is what I do. I record to me PC. Then I have a upload stream to a cloud server just incase someone breaks in and smashes my computer.

The motion detection feature is amazing. Best I have seen in these types of camera. I can set it to send images to my email address. and the sensitivity settings can be adjusted to low or high sensitivity.

I used this camera once to try to capture a mouse that was in my garage. I set up a mouse trap and this camera and the motion sensor went off and the camera emailed me the image of the mouse being killed, it was great. The garage was in total darkness but the image and video were crystal clear and bright.

Some tricks for set up.

If you are having trouble having the camera stay connected to your Wi-Fi you have to log in to your router and change
the wireless settings for channel width to auto 20 or 40 Mhz. If you have it set to 20 Mhz it will just keep connecting and then disconnecting repeatedly.

Also when setting up camera try to keep it level or even (not pointing down or up) Because at night in total darkness the infrared will be at an angle and not illuminate the entire seen. If its even then the entire area is bright and clear.
