NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port PD Pass-through Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switch (GS105PE) - Lifetime Warranty
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port Gigabit Switch GS105PE 05/03/2016

This review is from: NETGEAR ProSAFE 5-Port PD Pass-through Gigabit Web Managed (Plus) Switch (GS105PE) - Lifetime Warranty

Pros: Main advantage of this 5-ports gigabit switch is that its power is supplied through Ethernet cable and therefore it can be installed in odd remote locations such as above ceiling tile or in attic where there are no power outlets available. Power required to run this switch can be supplied through power injector placed at convenient location or from another switch compatible with PoE standard 802.3af. Ports 1 and 2 of this Netgear GS105PE can intelligently forward power to PoE devices connected to them (however power is limited to maximum 19 Watts if connected to 802.3at compliant devices and to maximum 7.9 Watts if connected to 802.3af compliant devices). Maximum consumed power by this switch (including loads connected to ports 1 and 2) is 22 Watts. If non-PoE compatible devices are connected to ports 1 and 2, PoE will not be applied to them. Ports 3 and 4 can be used to connect only non-PoE devices that have their own power supplies. Design of this switch is simple with informative diagnostic LED lights, Kensington Security Slot and grounding screw terminal. Switch comes with Lifetime Warranty, so make sure to register it with Netgear and save copy of sales receipt.

Cons: In order to perform initial configuration of this switch, proprietary tool have to be downloaded from Netgear website. This tool required you to accept Adobe Air terms of use. I received GS105PE with outdated firmware (1.3.0.3). Current firmware (as of May 2016) is 1.4.0.6. Subsequent configuration, reset and firmware update may be performed through any modern web browser.

Other Thoughts: I see this GS105PE switch as an ideal solution for 2 remote network cameras that are PoE 803.2at or 802.af compatible. All you need to feed this setup would be single standard 8-conductors Ethernet cable. I surely recommend it to users who does not have an access to power outlet at switch installation location.

GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming 6 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Great Gaming Motherboard with many useable features, USB 3.1 Type-A, SATA Express Support 02/08/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming 6 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Attractive design with silver, red and black theme that looks nice in any case with clear see-through side panel. Reinforced with metal braces PCI-Express slots reduce chance of damage when replacing or upgrading graphic cards. Removable and upgradeable headphones operational amplifier OPA2134PA with ability to adjust audio level output to your headphones (gain can be adjusted to 2.5 or 6.0 times). Motherboard is equipped with ECO and OC hardware buttons - this lets you quickly switch from lowest power consumption to highest performance with a press of a button. Also motherboard is equipped with debug dual 7-segment LED indicator that displays boot, recovery and error codes. Audio section on this board is insulated from digital section and produces remarkable sound compared to my previous motherboards. Also it is equipped with single COM port header and newest USB Type-C port, as well with 4 USB 2.0/1.1 ports, 3 USB 3.0/2.0 ports and 1 USB 3.1 Type-A port, as well with 2 Ethernet RJ-45 ports.

Cons: I have not found anything that I did not like about this board. It completely satisfies my needs. APP Store I do not find to be of any value and I do not use it.

Other Thoughts: This motherboard requires use of 6th generation Intel processor with socket LGA1151, and previous generation Intel processors with socket LGA1150 aren’t compatible and one will have to purchase new processors when upgrading system, as well as new memory modules - as this motherboard have DDR4 slots with 288 pins. My recommendation is to purchase this motherboard only if you are building new system.

iRULU U8 Smart Watch Bluetooth Google Android and Apple iOS Compatible Music Play Photo Function Fitness and Sleep Tracker Red
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This IRULU smart watch has many nice features, they are: 5-days battery life, touch screen, accurate pedometer, barometer, altimeter, thermometer, alarm clock, basic calculator, calendar, power saving mode and built-in speaker and microphone. Wristband is removable and replaceable (tool is included in box).

Cons: Low resolution display, every pixel is distinguishable. Cheap wristband made of silicone-like material. Poorly designed charging port cover that refuses to stay closed. Manual sleep monitor that one needs to start before going to sleep and stop after waking up. Requires additional Android application in order to use read Messages, BT Camera and BT Notice. No application is available for iOS as of October 2015.

Other Thoughts: This is not a watch that I would wear on daily basis. This is more a toy than a timekeeping piece. Equipped with Reset button, located beneath rear cover (not documented in user’s manual). User manual included is single sheet of paper requiring microscope to read, is machine translated from Chinese language. User Manual also contains two QR barcodes, one linking to Baidu and the other one to Google Play store in order to download application.
