This review is from: Coboc Light-White 6 ft. MFi Certified White Apple 8-pin Lightning Connector to USB Cable for Apple iPhone5, iPad4, iPad Mini, iPod Touch 5th Gen, iPod Nano 7th Gen - Charge and Sync Cable
Pros: Picked this up instead of an approved apple cable for 2 reasons, 1st price this thing is much cheaper than the apple cable. 2nd length, it is miles longer than a standard apple cable. Its also build extremely heavy, probably twice as thick as a normal apple cable. The connector clicks in solid as an apple cable so no complaints. To say how strong this item is, i can twirl my iphone with it plugged into the phone like a knot on a rope. This is after many weeks of pluggin in and out!
Cons: While it's not exactly a con the thickness of the cable isn't exactly as stunning as an actual approved apple cable. This doesn't take away from the product at all, but be warned it is thicker cable. Not the connector.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Axis Communications AXIS 214 PTZ, 18x Optical Zoom, Day/Night, 2-Way Audio IP Camera
Pros: I purchased this camera elsewhere but I felt it's so good it needs a decent review. It has a built in IR cut filter and a b/w color mode selection or auto selection. PTZ features are hands down best i've ever owned. With that said i've only had experience with foscam and shixen cameras. The web interface is very stable, snappy, and just awesome. Simple point the camera and it goes, select something and it figures out exactly how to get there and zooms perfectly. Picture quality is spot on, and the color mode works in near total darkness, and the ir mode does a much better job. Focus is spot on, however focus in color mode in total darkness makes it hunt (as expected) but in b/w mode its spot on. As with all Axis camera interfacing with 3rd party software is great, none of the guessing games like other cameras. The movement is precise and exact, even fully zoomed out you can move it only a fraction of a inch. Talking about zoom, WOW this thing can get out there. If you're on the fence about it, think about this, whats the purpose of the camera? If you are trying to identify someone you better be able to pinpoint them exactly, if you're only doing motion or intrusion detection save yourself the doe and pickup a foscam.
Cons: This camera has some size to it Its not small, and is easily noticeable, The price is only a con because I purchased this for use at my home, its in the correct price range for its performance but still i managed to find it for 600 bucks. It is a little noisy when doing huge pans from one set point to another set point. I can here it over my servers so don't plan on using this thing as a baby cam (not that any would).
Other Thoughts: I wish I could afford some of the other higher end outdoor models so i wouldn't have to point this Axis camera out one of my upstairs windows. But oh well, maybe someday. I wish foscam made something similar to this but much much cheaper.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have a dozen of these things in a raid 6 and have tested in raid 5 and they perform just excellent with an lsi 9260-4i card. I've purchased many from sever vendors to mix lot numbers, and I've purchased over time of about 1.5 years. Knock on wood, but not one ever failed, and they are constantly getting written to and data integrity checked. I love them and the price.
Cons: Wish they were actually not 2tb after windows counts the bits....READ FULL REVIEW
