I've seen these anywhere from $110-$160 and have seen pretty good reviews so far. Does anyone have one?

Don't have the 880, but I have the 990 and 555i, along with a few M80's from last year. I'm liking the 990 so far. Not impressed with 555. love the M80's.

My buddy bought a few and they take pictures for a few days and then quit. I didn't believe him so I went with him last trip and re-programmed myself. Sure enough, they quit after a few days. But the battery level shows good. Not sure about these...

I have two and they have not given me any problems. 3000-4000 pics every 4 weeks and usually only uses about 40percent of battery in that time. My brother bought the one that is a little more expensive with the blacked out flash deal and it was stuck on plot mode for some reason. Sent it back, new one working good. Just my .02

No experience on m880 but if has picture quality and battery life of m80 it should be worth the money

I swear game cams are 50 50 chance almost worth buying two at the same time because it almost never fails it for every good when there's a bad one

What do you not like about the 555i?
I have one and would like to know what the cons are?
I don't like how it triggers on every light/shadow change.

We bought 3 and they were junk. Kept taking pics even when the wind wasn't blowing. Sent it back and Moultrie just sent us a new camera in Cabelas packaging. We took the other 2 back to Academy for a refund. Haven't tried the cabelas one yet

The m880 will take pics every five minutes if you dont adjust the setting right. I have one and it sometimes takes blacked out pics. at night-(Like the IR did not go off when the pic was taken). The pictures it does take though are great, even the nighttime ones.

I have had good luck with moultrie, I run i40, d55ir, m80xt, 2 i35, but the key is to use good batteries and, even better if you use an external battery I haven't changed my cams battery in 2yrs

bad-way too sensitive on trigger. pics are blurry.
good- probably >7000 pics (of nothing), 90 % battery still. like the wide angle too.

No 880 here just the M80's,
still not sure why if they make something good like the M80.....

They gotta go jack with it...REALLY??

I never liked Moultrie products before, but the guys and me on the lease a couple years ago all got one and they were great and then bam! they changed em to the xt, I just don't get it, and guys say the XT is great and bam! they do it again

I have 2 M880s that work great for me. My M80s are also going strong, but I think I like the couple extra features on of the m880s as well. They will occassionally white out an animal too close to the camera, but most camera's will. Have great detection range and nighttime flash range as well. I just checked one of my M880s this evening and will try and attach a few sample pictures. The cameras often pick up movement and take pictures out to the second buck in the last picture. Thats "about" 18-20 yards

I bought one last month and have been happy with pics. I do seem to get a few pics of nothing if wind is blowing trees around.
