Pros: Fits over mirror. 2 cameras let you record in different directions. Records audio. Mirror itself is larger than most standard mirrors. Super long power cord. You can view the videos right on/in the mirror which is nice. Comes with an sd card. I have both cameras pointed forward for more than 180 degree field of view (though the split is not perfect).
Cons: Doesn't remember settings after powering off - my battery is bad in a new unit? Video isn't really HD - it's just not as clear as I'd like but it will show if someone crashes into you lol, just not enough to capture license plate info... unless you are very lucky. Mirror grabs existing mirror, but not tight enough as mirror vibrates while moving making it hard to use your rearview mirror to see behind you! Directions are horrible. Only a few buttons to navigate menus... buttons have to be short pressed or long-pressed depending on what you want to do. Nightvision is really useless unless you are pointing it at your passengers inside the car. and zoom can't be selected for just one camera. this is the worst drawback. Can't zoom in the rear-facing camera to catch bad drivers behind you, as you must leave the forward camera to have maximum field of vision.
Other Thoughts: I got mine for $100 so I'm happy with that price and what I got for it. Feel safer while driving already in case I ever get into an accident.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: RJ45 protection
Cons: big spikes still destroy things. these protective devices all need to be replaced after a few years too... though none of them say so!
Other Thoughts: To clear up mis-information, there is *nothing* on this planet which will protect your equipment from a direct strike short of physically unplugging it. I know, it just happened to me lol.
That said, these things work to moderate spikes in voltage which damage equipment. Whether from your refrigerator kicking on or a lightning strike down the street, they can help protect your stuff. But it also depends on how powerful the surge is... and where it originates.
Big plus on RJ45 protection. I lost anything with an ethernet port-- destroyed all ports-- whether something was turned on or not. wish I had had something like this protecting the network from the street-side and from where my 200' run from the garage comes into the house!!!!
This review is from: Intel EXPI9301CT Desktop Adapter Gigabit CT 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
Pros: An Intel card and cheap.
Cons: Does NOT work with WHS2011, no matter what board you have (Gigabyte). You (newegg) should list supported OS's, as it would appear by all comments (and by common sense) that this card would work with just about anything :(READ FULL REVIEW
