Once you get it into place it works just fine.

The images were not as clear as I had hoped and the LED lights are good for about a foot of range if you cannot provide another light source.

It turns out that the "flexible tube" is so stiff that I couldn't get it to go further than about 6" up the wall.

I bought the same one at Costco in late 2011 (yes it included the 3Ft extension). I felt a review would help others.

I'm an experienced design engineer and so far am pretty impressed. Longevity I don't know about yet.

It has a detachable remote display and a variable intensity lighted (four LEDs) CCD camera on a 9mm wand (smaller diameter than some others). The Std "goose-neck" wand is 3 Ft long and it comes with a 3 Ft "goose-neck" extension for 6 Ft total. The 3 Ft extension has a 19mm knurled nut on it though so the 9mm diameter Spec is only for 3 Ft. For 6 Ft you'll have to deal with a 19mm bulge half way at 3 Ft.

It also comes with a magnetic swivel stand (detachable) for the display, a injection molded carry case and other small items to pick up things (small hook, small magnet and a small 7mm diameter mirror) that attach to the camera end.

The display is rechargeable (AC adapter included) and the camera grip requires 4 AA batteries (not included). I successfully used four old NiMH batteries in the camera grip for well more than an hour before I gave up and turned it off. So lower voltage on the AA batteries within the camera grip does not seem to be an issue.

Quality of construction seems good. I tapped my finger on the camera, grip, electrical connections and display and did not see any video or operational problem.

My guess is that the remote display uses low power FCC Part 15 transmission (with AGC on the receiver) as best I can tell. I tested it at 20+ feet and it works fine. When moving (at 3Ft or 20Ft separation) there are some momentary analog looking dropouts (receiver AGC time constant?) on the video. When I stopped moving it becomes perfect again within the observed 1/5 second assumed AGC time constant.

Ok I bought mine at Costco as well. (Seems to be the place) As for the wand not being bright enough... I thought the same thing until I realized that the on/off dial is also a light intensity dial. Turn the thing up and it gets bright. Just turn it on and it's very dim. Kind of a duh!

The wand is a bit difficult to get used to. It's 3 feet long and comes with an extra 3 foot extension. It is very stiff. However with a little practice I was able to maneuver it as needed. I have a pellet stove and used it to inspect the exhaust chamber and exhaust pipes for ash buildup. The camera/led housing is approximately 1 ¾ inches long so you won't be making very tight turns in a drain/ pipe/ wall etc. add the stiffness of the shaft and you're looking at about a 3 ½ to 4 inch turn radius. So if you plan to pass a sink trap... think again.

The screen has a resolution of 640 X 480 Pix. So for inspecting a tight spot it's just fine. This is approx standard resolution of tube televisions or old RGB monitors for you older computer guys. I could make out everything I was looking at just fine. Remember this is an inspection camera not a vacation photo shoot thing. Also I've found that taking the viewer off of the unit and using the magnetic mount is better than keeping it attached to the wand. When you're moving the thing in/ out/ left/ right/ turning it upside-down to get into an area and inspect... well you get the idea.

For the sake of argument I allowed it to broadcast to see what the effective range is. The owner's manual states 32.8 feet. I found usable distance to be 20 - 24 feet. Not that you're going to be that far from the camera wand while you're inspecting something, but I threw this in as general info.

I bought this at Costco for about $150 before Xmas and used it for the first time today. At the time, I figured it wouldn't be a big loss if it didn't work out. Mistake. I'm a retired engineer, and contrary to what that other guy wrote, the Whistler Wireless Inspection Camera is really a pretty useless toy.

I tried it in two situations. I needed to look inside the wall for damage. It turns out that the "flexible tube" is so stiff that I couldn't get it to go further than about 6" up the wall. Secondly, the LED light on the end is very dim and the resolution on the small video monitor is very poor. The wood inside the wall looked mottled and covered with mold!

So then I looked inside the wall with my bare eye and a flashlight. The wood was fine. The camera picture is just really bad. The colors are very washed out, which makes it even harder to understand what you're looking at. Also, you cannot focus it at all, so there is only one depth at which you can see something up close. Inside a wall, you can't get far enough away from something to bring it into focus.

Lastly, the camera has one orientation, but when you are pushing the tube up an opening, it gets turned around. So most of the time the picture is upside down or sideways, which is very disorienting.

In the second application, I tried looking inside my expensive Jura coffeemaker to see where coffee grounds get stuck. Because of the rigidity of the tube and the dim light, I couldn't discern anything inside.

Be warned that the monitor requires overnight charging before use. The manual says the rechargable lithium battery is not user-replaceable. The light source requires 4 AA batteries.

I'm giving this product 1 star because while it is an interesting toy, as a DIY tool, it is an absolute failure.
