This review is from: Belkin F7D7606 Netcam HD+ Wi-Fi Camera with Glass Lens and Night Vision
Pros: Still can't get over how easy it was to set up this camera. As easy as downloading the app on the phone/tablet (Android Nexus 6, in this case), creating an account. Having used other wi-fi cameras in the past, I was surprised at the lack of any additions in the box (long manual), but soon found out that it was unnecessary and would have added bulk to the packaging.
What you see is what you get, the camera, power cord/adapter, and the small "guide".
Picked up the wi-fi network almost immediately and no issue moving the camera afterwards (up to 40 feet away from the router, behind 2 walls) to a spot where it would be used more.
2-way audio is great, and a feature tons of companies do not get right, although it could be implemented better in a future revision.
Cons: Extremely buggy firmware, took about 8 minutes to complete the update that it needed out of the box. No signs of any progress at all.
Software needs refinement, could learn something from other brands as far as it being more beginner-friendly, but still have options for advanced users.
No tilt/pan? What is this, 2008?
I would be happy with the no tilt/pan function if the camera was at least good, it is extremely choppy and lags even with the lower resolution options.
Lack of SD card option is a big no-no for something that mostly requires a service app with a fee, I would have liked to record things to the card itself if the choice was there.
Although the camera is mediocre, I really can't give it any less than 3 eggs, because I do believe a future iteration will solve these firmware/software issues, along with the camera lens used.
Other Thoughts: Can't really say I would purchase it at full price, as I've had better cameras for the price, and even less.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Netgear C6300 AC1750 Wi-Fi DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router 2 in 1
Pros: This modem/router now replaces my other DOCSIS 3.0 modem and fancy AC2400 dual band router with no problems at all. I find it extremely easy to look at and the navigation within the browser settings is detailed (although I'm sure more updates and advanced features might be available in feature revision for the firmware. I have no doubts that it will be much better than what 'high-speed' internet providers rent out monthly. A single source of power is also better than having two bigger devices take more space and occupy more than a single outlet connection. Only minimal use as of now, but no intermittent speeds and much less dropping signal.
The USB slots on it are great to plug in a external storage device and share it with everyone on the network, or just to have extra slots to plug in a printer or scanner with ease.
I am pretty impressed at the lack of dead spots my provider's company surely did show, they could learn a thing or two about this combo for future implementation
Cons: Not having a bigger apartment to take full advantage of the range. (Can't knock off an egg for that)
Have to call in to your friendly cable company to get the modem registered on their system, which is more than a hassle than just setting it up yourself.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend for extra ethernet ports to be added as a part of a future revision, as it would also eliminate the need for a small un-managed switch.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tons of space, underpriced, expensive features, elegant finish
Cons: Can't think of any for a case at its price point.READ FULL REVIEW
