Lenovo Thinkpad L420 Notebook - Intel Core i5-2520M 2.5Ghz - 4GB Ram - 160GB Hard Drive - 14
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Thought I took a gamble on a refurb. What I got was a GREAT machine that does everything I need it to do at a really great price.

Cons: No camera. This is not an issue with the machine or the supplier I used, Surplus Products. It's just that some L models (mine) did not come with a camera. No big deal for me as this is a machine that will live in a closet. If you want one with a camera, look for one that says it has a camera.

Other Thoughts: I've never bought a used machine before. I didn't need one that looked good. I just needed one that worked. It is a small server. It was much cheaper than a desktop and takes up much less space. I wasn't expecting much. What I got exceeded my expectations. This is a pretty fast machine running W7Pro64 with plenty of connectivity and really fast N-WiFi. It has an mSATA slot so you can add am mSATA drive for the OS and use the included SATA drive for data. Found a 120GB mSATA for 39 bucks. It makes this machine scream. Not sure I will buy a refurb anything again, but this machine sure was a good deal.

RFID Proximity Door Entry Access Control System + 10 Key Fobs

3 out of 5 eggs Access Control Panel 01/07/2015

This review is from: RFID Proximity Door Entry Access Control System + 10 Key Fobs

Pros: Looks good. Kinda cool.

Cons: Built more for unsecure access. One tiny screw holds the plastic cover on (mine did not even have a screw....) One hit with almost any hard object would break the case allowing access to the wiring and as a result, access to the door.

Other Thoughts: I've decided to use it as a counter through a doorway.

D-Link DCS-5029L HD 720P Pan/Tilt  Night Vision Motion Detection 2 Way Audio Wireless  mydlink enabled Surveillance Cloud  IP Camera
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

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.
