Pros: Don't usually buy DLink products, but this was on sale and I needed a PTZ camera. It was VERY easy to set up. Had it on the network and viewing from my iPhone in less than 10 minutes. I would give the picture and sound quality a B+.
Cons: If this wasn't a PTZ then the cloud based software would not be so bad. However, it IS a PTZ and the software stinks. The presets positions do not work with mydlink. You have to go into the "advanced settings" (which is just the camera software) to use them. However, when you switch back over to the cloud, it reverts back to the factory home position. That totally stinks. But the WORST part is trying to PTZ from a phone. 90% of the time, the camera moves in the opposite direction from how you swipe and then it only moves a tiny bit. You have to keep doing it 20+ times to get the camera to pan 100 degrees. AND, when viewing from the cloud (mydlink) you can only view for short time before your time RUNS OUT and your connection is dropped. What a PITA. They need to put a standard PTZ control on the cloud based connection and allow you to view for more than 5 minutes......
Other Thoughts: My camera is remote and miles away. I think the way I should have set it up is give it a static address on my remote network and forward the port to it so I could use the camera's internal software and not the mydlink cloud junk.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The letters on the keys are BIG! If you have trouble reading the letters on your keyboard, this thing is great. Even with the backlight off, they are still very visible during the day. At night they light up great! Bright, but not too bright
Cons: I went from a 1980's IBM keyboard, to a Logitech gaming keyboard to this. Nothing can beat the IBM for typing, but there are no media or windows keys on it. This keyboard is taking some getting used to. The key throws are different and the width of the keys is bigger so I double-key often.
Other Thoughts: For twenty bucks it is a great keyboard. Not the best for a lot of typing, but definitely good for surfing or FBing at night.
Operationally, I would give it three stars because of all the double keying and backspacing I have to do for now, but I am adding a star because it is a good looking keyboard, Especially with the blue backlighting,
This review is from: APC Back-UPS BE350G 350 VA 200 Watts 6 Outlets UPS
Pros: This is a relatively cheap UPS that is built to last. I have had one for about 3 years and another for a little over a year. These are NOT for unattended shutdown of computers. These are so that when you are on the last line of your 2000 word document (that you haven't been saving) and the power goes out for a second, you won't lose your work. They are also great for letting you know that the power is out in the middle of the night when you are sound asleep and it really doesn't matter!
Cons: No switch to turn off the alarm permanently.
Other Thoughts: If you live in an area that is prone to blips in the electrical supply, this baby will save you from a reboot in the middle of your work. Worthless if you have a laptop running on battery power. ....though it will charge the battery of your laptop (or Phone!) during a long power outage. You'll just have to deal with the alarm!READ FULL REVIEW
