  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Ideal for Small Office/Home Office 08/04/2016

This review is from: NETGEAR 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with 4-Port PoE (GS308P)

Pros: Dead simple layout.
Good unmanaged switch.
Metal Design, Mounts included.
POE on ports 1-4 for Voip phones, Wireless AP, or Security Cam.
Beefier power supply due to POE.
Adjustable POE.
Nice Warranty

Cons: Fanless so it will be quiet, but will generate some heat.

Other Thoughts: Tested this at my home office and voip worked and conference phone as well as the Cam.
Read the notes that if you exceed the power limitation with POE the first 3 ports will work and the 4th one will be disabled.

Zmodo Greet - Smart WiFi HD Video Doorbell

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Not ready for Primetime 07/12/2016

This review is from: Zmodo Greet - Smart WiFi HD Video Doorbell

Pros: Looks great, sleek sexy design. Decent picture.

Cons: With enough force some one could steal it

Other Thoughts: On paper this thing sounds awesome.
Wire into a pre- existing doorbell, answer the door with your smart phone even if your away. Securely monitor and screen your packages delivered to your door.

RTFM

The wiring was the hardest part especially if you have some old odd wiring. Finally got it to work thanks to a handy friend.

It comes with an adapter.

Played the router wifi game to get this thing to connect to my wifi was a chore as well

Picture quality was decent. Boy did this thing take pictures when the sensor was activated. Got lots of false alarm results.



Honestly the future is now and it's a great time to be alive, but I felt having this device screwed to my vinyl siding a bit much.

It worked most of the time and appears to be a decent value. The false alarms and not being able to hear the doorbell chime was something I missed hearing. Often times I would be away form my smart device
So I would be forced to go to the door anyways.

First world problems I know.
It is decent and has been graded as such.

Seagate 2TB Backup Plus Ultra Slim Portable External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 Model STEH2000101 Gold
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: -Portable , light
-Slim -very much like a standard ssd drive.
-Capable external hard drive. 1.81 TB of storage will be available to you.
-Love the golf ball dimple design on the enclosure.
Compatible with Playstation 4, -You will have to format to exFat with windows 10. Otherwise you will receive error this usb device not supported.
Compatible with Xbox One. Once you plug in Xbox will prompt you , and format it for you.

Cons: See Other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I received a sliver colored one.

Microsoft's One Drive storage would be nice if it were permanent, They give you 2 years and its clearly labeled as such. After that time is up (from personal experience) One drive starts getting rid of your stuff on their cloud.

Lyve mobile app would be nice if they didn't use a proprietary system. It's Similar to itunes and ipods , if you are looking at the windows folder directory you will not see the jpgs and mp4s, just a weird folder structure that Lyve has created to only work within their APP.
Lyve also needs to be installed on every device you want to share/sync with.
It's work and not seamless.
The idea of just syncing your stuff to an external hard drive would be nice but the execution is poor.

I'll stick to BitTorrentsync

As for physical shortcomings.
No rubber feet on the bottom to prevent sliding. Although to be fair they may have designed it so you could slip it into your pocket or coat easily.
Very short cord-but i guess that's what makes it streamlined and portable eh?
