Pros: super high definition image. Stream live view to remote ( or local ) computer or cell phone (using Synology Diskstation software) Power over Ethernet means just one cable to run. Easy mounting. Weatherproof ethernet connection provided. ( POE injector available separately.)
Cons: A little drama to get it connected to my network, but once connected, it stays connected -- Except in the case of an electrical brownout. Then my Synology Surveillance Station software locked up without returning any errors, and required a reboot. But that appears to be related to the Synology DSM and not to this camera, from what I can tell.
Other Thoughts: The Synology Diskstation's Surveillance Station software does not have drivers for this camera yet ( December 2013 ), so there's a bit of drama involved to get the motion detection working from the camera instead of from the DSM. Camera's motion detection is superb; DSM motion detection not so much. Here's a link explaining how to configure that: www (dot) cctvforum (dot) com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=37182READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Cheap, Small. Simple, Clean Design, Doesn't look like a gamer's case. USB 3.0 Comes with a mobo speaker. Whole case painted black, including the back and the inside.
Cons: Cheap, Small. Thin metal. Power button near the bottom of the case - should be near the top where I can reach it. No handle to lift the thing, like a Mac Pro has. PSU mounts on the top where it creates heat. (This is an overclocked hackintosh build.)
Other Thoughts: I cut a hole in the top to mount a "Black Medium ATA Flight Road Case Deep Recessed Handle" (bought on the bay auction site.) I'm going to cut holes in the bottom to mount two 120mm or 140mm fans there (they'll block the last PCIe expansion slot on the Mobo, but I don't need it.)READ FULL REVIEW
