Pros: Price was right I got 2 of them for $59ea no tax and free shipping. I bought them to watch our son in his room when he is supposed to be taking a nap and the second to keep an eye on the dog when not home. 9 Months later they finally work better then when I bought them after a few app updates and firmware updates to the cameras.
Cons: Even though Edimax has attempted to improve the app and fix the other issues with the ip cams via firmware updates they are still sub par in performance. The Audio is garbled and has a significant delay when I speak into the mic to say something through the camera. I had constant problems with them losing signal and or rebooting or I had to reboot them by pulling the power....though the latest firmware seems to have resolved those problems finally BUT the app is still sub par it times out constantly is very delayed and the IR gets washed out and rendered useless when any other light source is near.
Other Thoughts: I just set up two Nest Cams at my Elderly Fathers condo to keep an eye on him and they work 1000 times better especially the app and picture clarity truthfully I plan on trying to resell these Edimax cameras and spend a little more on the Nest Cams....unless edimax can improve the performance of the app/camera and the desktop recording software.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Modular and worked great when it worked
Cons: Died after 2 months
Other Thoughts: I got this one because of specs and rebate I usually buy only Antec Power Supplies since in all my 20+ years of building PCs I have yet to have one fail on me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: WAS fast when I installed it worked great. WAS is the operative word. FAST it is not after a year as an O/S only drive (Windows 8.1)
Cons: After about a year the Drive is Running Super Slow in fact its slower than my normal WD Black Secondary drive. After doing some digging I found out that over time this drive will ALWAYS get slower here is Kingston's official word on the subject "Performance decrease has been reported on some of the SSDNow drives. If you have an older SSD drive that does not have effective Garbage Collection, SSD drive performance will drop over time." Mine is only 1 year Old I don't consider that older Kingston should make some sort of Software solution to counter this problem or replace these drives as I consider it false advertising on the speed and performance and a lemon
Other Thoughts: Had I known of this issue I would not have bought this drive so far the only Solution I have seen from Kingston is "Performance decrease has been reported on some of the SSDNow drives. If you have an older SSD drive that does not have effective Garbage Collection, SSD drive performance will drop over time. This is due to the way the system overwrites data that has been flagged for deletion.
Try using the Secure Erase tool like HDDErase to wipe the drive and restore it to original condition.
Which in my case is a pain in the if I have to do that every year
