Is the VD-LX700IR100L2812-W better than the OD-LX700IR100L2812-W?  They appear to have the same specs for the most part but one is slightly more costly.  With the OD being out of stock I am considering the VD but just what are the differences?  Should I wait on the OD model to be available?  I've worked with the OD before but not the VD.

As far as the CCD and DSP go, they are using the same technologies. The VD model is a true Vandal Dome which is much nicer to look at. Also, the VD model has a dial on the board that allows you to either reduce or turn off the IR illumination which is very helpful when there is already ambient light and you do not need the IR illumination. This provides a clearer night time image.

These 2 cameras are the same, except for the housings.  The VD does have an additional IR dial on the back of the camera to intensify or deintensify the IR of the camera.  With the VD you need to be careful of how you are mounting the camera since you have a limitation with the angle the camera can shoot down a wall.  This is because the IR's will tuck under the lip of the camera causing a reflection at night.  If you need to shoot down a wall we do have a wall mount which will allow for this application.  If the camera is mounted on a ceiling, no worries.
