This review is from: NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (R7000)
Pros: Coming from DLink DIR-655 Rev1 with last me for 6 years and counting, it still work, but I needed a more solid and farther WiFi Router thru wall and it delivered.
Dual band 2.5GHz and 5GHz ( Better coming from DLink 655 single)
Little better range in N, haven't test AC, bc of leak of device yet (note AC is only in 5 GHz band with only WPA2-PSK) Future proofing my WiFi BAND choice too.
No drop WiFi signal
No Router reboot
NetGear GUI is easy and fast response
If you EVER work with a Home WiFi Router before this is no different
Free Android/iOS app for some quick setting
USB port option to add a USB3 hard drive or printer
Two screw hole to mount to wall
Simultaneous Dual Band WiFi signal
Cons: These are some small gripe, don't really bother me, but may for other
It black and no white version available to better match the wall
Router is is a big in size compare to my DLink at least double the size.
Antennae maybe too large( but is necessary)
Not cheap, but it the fastest for now
Wish had more Wire Network Port
Other Thoughts: If you what to upgrade from a single band G and N band router and want the best N/AC this is for you.
Devices connected to my new router all 4 wires used for desktop PCs, switches, PS4, and Nas box. Wifi used with phones, Tablets, 4 IP Cams(different brands)
The ASUS RT-AC66U was my other choose. Local store availability is better with the Nighthawk. At the end of the day better price win me over compare to the Asus. Return the Nighthhwak to ($200) W mart and got the better price $160 (Newegg.com)
Pros: Good price on sale @ $150 w/ free shipping
Fast, clean, web GUI
Cons: Need more Adjustment for motion capture
Pane and tilt need more interval
need to improve camera sensor true resolution
need to improve fps(this the same for all low budget Hi-res camera)
Like all IPCam this don't give more info in each setting, it more trial and error
Other Thoughts: I have and owned Foscam, Trendnet, Compro, Asante, and now Edimax IP Camera. The best video qualities would go to the Asante, it seem to be closed to the 720p resolution. I use this edimax pointing out to a window, so the night vision is useless for me, but it show decent black and white videos. The Edimax would be more under 720 quality sensor and not the 1080 resolution the company listed. But the GUI surpass all the brands listed in speed and ease of use. The layout is simple and not too complicated. Sdcard works great, but I also use ftp to nas. Ftp was a little tricky to get it working you have to know the name convention to the saved to folder. Wireless work for my Dlink Dir655 N router. From 40 feet away with clear path, it maintain excellent connection signal. I think it worth $150.
It seem like all brands IPcam lack one thing or the other. This one is getting closed to all around best ipcam that I have it. Time will tell if it stay running will and more firmware support
This review is from: Compro IP70 Megapixel/HD Wireless Network Camera, WL150 wireless dongle up to 150Mbps, Max 1280x1024 resolution, H.264, Day/Night, support iPhone and Android Apps. 2 way audio, 2-in 1-out I/O
Pros: Good Hi-rise video on local network
Cons: everything else, Wireless connection, software setup, Sdhc recorder, etc
Other Thoughts: What to upgrade from a commom IP Cmos Cam (Foscam PTZ and Trendnet IP121W) to higher Megapixel IP Cam, but very disappoint from the setup itself to performance after setup. Didn't get this here, but from Gridconnect, best price for Compro IP Cam. Foscam and Trendnet IP Cam software was easy and it works. Compro software have easy directions, but software was buggy and freeze up alot even after firmware update v2.03 and newest iwizard 2.01 software setup. Cam couldn't detect Sdhc card from different size and brand (Sandisk and Kingston). Wireless N adapter have weak signal and drop alot compare to Wireless G from both Foscam and Trendnet (I have a DLink DIR655 router). I really want this to work because the video quality was better then the other two I have. On paper it have great specs: built-in sdhc recording, built in speaker and mic, better wireless N connection then G. Android and iphone app support. All great specs from a cheap megapixel cam, beside PTZ function. Returning it afteREAD FULL REVIEW
