Pros: Writes from SSD over SATA3 on my MB at about 40 MBps. It did record full 1080p @ 60 fps in my Yuneeq Q500 drone just like several other cards, but it transferred the files to PC at around the 40 MBps.
Cons: This was nowhere near the claim of 85 MBps for PC transfers using USB 3.0. 7200 rpm HDD transfers were capped at 20MBps every time. Multiple drives @ 7200 and 5400 connected to the MB via SATA showed consistent slowdown based on the quality of the source drive. Not sure how they got the 85 MBps number but the card is very good as a capture media, and it's cheap as dirt.
Other Thoughts: System:
MB: ASUS Z87 Pro
CPU: Core i5 4670k @ 3.4 ghz (I know, didn't have time before review to OC to my chip's limit of 4.2)
Mem: 8GB G-Skill Sniper @ 1866
SSD: Sandisk II Extreme SSD
OS: Windows 10 Home
Spare HDDs: 7200 Seagate Barracudas, 5400 WD NAS
Pros: Since the kyes register at near the top of the stroke errors do occur. CUE still stinks.
Cons: Touchy. Gray gamer keys are ugly. Doesn't spell check as I typpee...
Other Thoughts: Compared to the K70 RGB with Cherry REd, this keyboard is better in almost every way -except the keys, ironically. Especially in normal typing the rapid fire keys while feeilng great definitely allow for (and often cause) many typos... After placing two O-Rings on each key the feel an mis-types improved greatly. I'd recommend this keyboard for any gamer but for every day usage I'd go with any of the other K70 models since this one forces you to bu very precise when typing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good video in bright light. The ability to record video and take photos. Good mounting options.
Cons: It drops signal after less than a minute even when in the next room. Needs to be re-linked with often to prevent constant interruptions in signal. Stores a thumbnail of the last known video frame and displays that convincingly as a current signal when it's not...
Other Thoughts: At first this camera appeared to present better imagery than the D-Link competitor I have reviewed and the ability to store video remotely on any device (like my phone) was compelling, but after using it for a few weeks I can't recommend it. The front panel on the base can be removed and then cover the screws you might use to mount it, but It's just not reliable. It will tell you it's taking a photo but if the signal has dropped all you'll get is a snapshot of the last good frame which could have been saved days or weeks ago. No thanks.READ FULL REVIEW
