This review is from: EZVIZ Mini HD 720p WiFi Home Security Camera with Motion Detection, 130 degree View, Night Vision, Works with Alexa using IFTTT (Special Offer 12 Month Cloud Storage w/ 7 day Playback)
Pros: Decent price. Small footprint. Good picture quality. Easy set up, sort of. (see cons) USB power source. Can record to micro SD card up to 128GB with latest firmware. Easy to update firmware. Blue status light can be turned off. App works very well. Has everything you need. Time stamp is cool.
Seems to be good quality build. Magnetic base and mounting hardware.
Cons: Though set up is easy it took at least 10 attempts til the camera was able to receive wireless credentials from my phone. QR Code did not work for me.
Only 2.4 GHz ~ 2.4835 GHz wireless supported.
Camera runs a little warm I found this surprising.
You can only log on with a mobile device. When using a Windows 10 computer, you are instructed to use Internet Explorer 8 or above. Windows 10 uses Microsoft Edge. Same message received when using Google Chrome.
"Live" isn't really live. At least for me there is about 2 second delay on average.
Other Thoughts: My cons are trivial but add up enough to take away an Egg.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable small footprint device to monitor indoor activity. You can record and view later. Cloud storage is an option.
I did not view picture quality on a computer monitor.
This review is from: Pantum M6552NW 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi USB / Ethernet / Wireless mono Laser MFP Printer
Pros: Set up is easy. Remove all the tape and the doc feeder things. Put in the disc pick the correct printer and how you want to connect. Follow on screen instructions. Good print quality. Scans in color if you choose. Really nice for the price. Small foot print.
Cons: Scanning is a bit slow. Using the paper instructions can be confusing. Limited file type. This is not for a business, this is for personal use.
Other Thoughts: If you don't need color prints and you aren't printing thousands of pages. This printer is for you. Laser vs inkjet, laser wins hands down as far as cost per print.
My qualifications on this subject is I am in the large office, production printers/copier business for over 25 years.
I would recommend this printer/scanner to anyone that just needs black prints etc.
Pros: 480GB SSD for $100.00.
Way faster than a regular HDD.
3 year warranty.
Low power consumption.
Cons: There was no read/write test I performed on this Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5" 480GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive that came close the the advertised speeds. I recorded 270-295 MBps both read and write.
Does not come with any migration software.
Not a con for most people, but TLC will wear out sooner. For most people probably not a problem.
Kinda like there are only so many barks in a dog. A SSD only has X amount of read/write til it will begin to fail. MLC will have more read/write than TLC. That's just the way it is.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this drive for anyone that is not a power user.
Don't let my cons scare you off. This is a very good SSD for the price.
As another reviewer mentioned a SSD is only as good as the controller it uses.
This drive uses a Phison controller, as do others that cost more.
There really isn't a reason to not use a SSD in a new computer build or bring some new life to an older computer.
If you do not have SATA III your gain in performance will be much less. Many older laptop/PC might not be able to get full benefit of what an SSD can do because they don't have the capability to handle the data speed.
