SAMSUNG SmartCam SNH-P6410BN Full HD 1080P Day & Night WDR 2 Way Audio Wireless IP Camera
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Cinch to set up and install. Great video resolution, nice sound and web interface.

Cons: Firmware update makes the camera basically non-functional.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these, one in each of our children's rooms. When I'm working in the evening I used to use my Synology NAS to monitor if the children woke up. The latest firmware update prevents 3rd party apps like Synology Surveillance Station connecting correctly to the camera. Okay, so I switch to the web interface. There you can only monitor one camera at a time, which was okay, I could monitor one child and switch to the other if necessary. But now, the firmware times out after 2 minutes monitoring and says, "Video monitoring has expired". What is the use of an IP camera that only monitors for 2 minutes at a time?? For some reason, Samsung have deliberately destroyed the functionality of this camera, it essentially doesn't work as an IP cam any more, so please, don't buy it.

SeaSonic Platinum Series SS-400FL2 Active PFC F3 400W ATX12V Fanless 80 PLUS Platinum Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Completely silent and very cool.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This runs my Haswell based HTPC in a LianLi PC-C50 case with a 5 disk setup, two SSD and 3x 7200rpm drives and 4 120mm fans along with the InfinitTV 6. Plenty of power available for this setup making it the perfect PS for HTPC.

Ceton InfiniTV 6 PCIe - 5205-DCT06IN-PCIE - Six-tuner Card for Watching Digital Cable TV on the PC, PCI-Express x1 Interface
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 6 tuners, obviously. Currently our house uses 2 extenders as well as the main TV, so that takes 3 tuners. Using the old 4-tuner card we'd sometimes run into situations where there weren't enough tuners to record simultaneous shows. So now, 6 tuners should solve that.

Cons: None specific to these cards.

Other Thoughts: These cards are not trivial to set up, you need a strong TV signal (it's going to split six ways in the card) and a lot of know how. Expect to be spending a lot of time researching on the internet to get this right. Plug and play they are not, which is probably why many people prefer the external modules. Even the guy on the phone at TWC said he had many people with problems using internal cards. For me, this was an upgrade so it was a simple as switch cards, phone TWC with the new host id, wait for new authorization codes and reconfigure WMC and we were done. Brilliant.
