Wemo Switch Smart Plug, Wi-Fi, Works with Alexa
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Works great, easy to set up! 10/22/2016

This review is from: Wemo Switch Smart Plug, Wi-Fi, Works with Alexa

Pros: - Very simple to setup. Follow the basic printed directions to download the free iOS or Android app. Once downloaded, the app guides you through the wifi connection process. Worked on my first try!
- Works as advertised. The unit plugs into the wall and supplies power to a device (or power strip). You can remotely turn the device on via the mobile app at any time, from anywhere, assuming your wifi is on and functioning. You can also setup rules for the device. For example, you can tell the device to power on at a certain time (or times) of day. I use the device to turn on my old coffee pot at 7am each day of the week. You can plug a lamp into it, and set a rule to have it turn on at certain times of day for specific time intervals, or have it turn on at random times of day to make it seem like you are at home when you're not (via "Away Mode".) Tons of potential uses!

Cons: - None yet.

EZVIZ Mini HD 720p WiFi Home Security Camera with Motion Detection, 130 degree View, Night Vision, Works with Alexa using IFTTT (Special Offer 12 Month Cloud Storage w/ 7 day Playback)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - Very small, sleek design.
- Includes AC adapter and cord.

Cons: - Setup was not smooth, as others have pointed out. I had to try about 10 times to get the camera hooked up to my Wifi at home. I was about 5 feet from the router, but was never able to get it to connect automatically by following the on-screen directions very carefully. I had to hold the camera in front of a QR code on my iPad to get it working, and that took 3 or 4 tries as well.
- Device gets pretty hot when in use.
- The main issue I am experiencing on both my android phone and apple ipad, is that the connection to the camera drops every 5-10 seconds. I have to reload the video (press the refresh button) each time to get the camera back online. This renders the camera useless for any kind of monitoring or recording. Some users suggested disabling the 5.0 gHz band on the router to fix the issue, but mine was already disabled. Not sure if there is an issue with my router (TP Link AC 1750) but the router is rock-solid with all other devices at home.

Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - 480 GB is perfect for my needs as a primary OS and applications drive. I have a lot of apps installed on my PC and this drive still has plenty of room to spare.
- Fast: Benchmarks in CrystalDisk are between 400-500 MB/sec, which is great for all around application loading and file transfer.
- Price: reasonable for the disk size.
- Small form factor: Not a huge deal if you are installing in a desktop PC, but could be useful if you are installing it in a slim laptop or Macbook Pro. Likewise if you want to install it in a thin exterior USB enclosure.

Cons: - None yet.
