This review is from: Logitech MK120 Wired USB Keyboard and Mouse - Black
Pros: Cheap, basic keyboard that's great as a backup, for a casual typist, or someone that's never used a mechanical or other mid- to high-end keyboard.
Cons: Super mushy feel, even by membrane (non-mechanical) keyboard standards.
Other Thoughts: IT purchased a bunch to replace old Dell Y-UK-DEL1 keyboards (also membrane). I used it for 3 minutes, couldn't stand it, and then switched back to old Dell.
At the time I was using a first generation Logitech G15 at home, and it was also vastly better than the MK120.
I would not hesitate to buy for a server room or as a backup/spare, but I can't use it as my primary keyboard.
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).
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).
