Rosewill Powerbank RCBR-13020-BK – Black, 11,200mAh External Backup Battery Charger for Smartphone, iPhone, iPad, & iPod
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Allows things to be charged while the pack itself is charging.

Two ports (2A and 1A) gives some flexibility in charging tablets or multiple phones.

Seems to be of rated capacity: Can easily charge a phone 4 or 5 times. Charging power-hungry Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10" tablet uses about half capacity (according to the LEDs).

Control is very easy: press the button, blue lights turn on, good to charge. Unplug and it shuts off on its own a while later.

Cons: A bit bulky (but it's also 11mAh), plus you also have to carry around a charge cable.

Flashlight is not very bright (most cell phone flash lights will far surpass it), if that is important (I never use it).

Rosewill RSCM-12002 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Wireless N Day/Night Internet IP Camera
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Decent picture for the cost. Has day/night, controllable LEDs, audio. Nice versatile mounting bracket -- works as a stand, wall or ceiling mount, and allows pointing in any direction in any setup.

Cons: Connection is not very reliable. Has trouble especially with multiple connections at once, even when connected via wired ethernet. I have two, and they both do this -- for many minutes, one just won't be accessible. Try again a while later, and it works fine.

Night mode switching is a bit aggressive, and can't be adjusted. Inside, if there's not light directly shining on the area being watched, it tends to go to night mode.

Other Thoughts: Many ways to access, but basically no documentation. I had to packet sniff to figure some URLs out:

JPG Image: /cgi/jpg/jpg.cgi
MJPG Image: /cgi/mjpg/mjpg.cgi
MJPG image: /cgi/mjpg/mjpeg.cgi (this is used by the included software, but doesn't work properly in browser. I haven't investigated much)

Audio: /cgi/audio/audio.cgi (16-bit PCM, mono, 8000hz. streamed in 3868 byte chunks as mime type multipart/mixed)

By running a proxy in front to remap URLs, I'm able to use this (including audio) with off-the-shelf software (I randomly picked a Trendnet TV-IP121W and used with TinyCam Pro).

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ965FBGMBOX Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works exactly as you'd expect a CPU to work.

Love that the AM3 socket is still compatible with the motherboard I purchased a couple years earlier, for my last PC build (in fact, this is the primary reason I chose AMD initially; the lower price vs competitors is a very nice bonus).

Cons: Stock cooling is very loud. I don't overclock or anything, but when I play a game or do something highly CPU intensive the volume is comparable to what you'd expect from a 1U rackmount server. I could not live with this in the same room as me.

The CPU temperature was getting up above 60 degrees C.

I replaced with a liquid cooler within a couple days of owning this, so that was also an extra $60 or something that getting this really cost me.

Other Thoughts: Within two days, I purchased and installed a Antec KÜHLER H2O 620. Made a HUGE difference. Sound of my PC is barely noticeable, and the temperature barely goes above 50 degress C at most -- usually hovers around 38.

Factor the cost of aftermarket cooling into your purchase.
