Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P (59375624) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 24GB SSD Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT750M Discrete Graphics (SLI) 2GB 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Runs games on high settings
- 2x 750M in SLi!
- Beautiful monitor
- Great form factor, not bulky

Cons: - Audio connections are on the right side of laptop near front...
- The Ultrabay card was defective. Fan was excessively loud and after calling Lenovo 3 times and having two different parts shipped (an internal graphics card and a DVD-ROM ultrabay...) I decided to RMA the laptop for a refund. Upon calling the third time Lenovo told me to send the laptop back as they do not offer replacement of the Ultrabay card due to it being an "added option"

Other Thoughts: Lenovo has decent support, but I explained the situation multiple times to both service reps and both times confirmed with the rep the correct part number via their own website and was assured that was the part I would be shipped. Neither time was the correct part sent and ultimately it was a time sink for all parties involved. I would recommend the laptop to others, but have decided to go with the new 13.3" Sager/Clevo as the RMA process took long enough for this new laptop to release. If you are looking for a 15" laptop this laptop is great.

TRENDnet TV-IP851WIC 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Wireless Day / Night PTZ Cloud Camera
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Incredible app for viewing on the go
- Set up time in under 10 minutes
- Heavy duty mounting bracket
- Online cloud streaming to easily manage multiple cameras with ease
- ability to turn off LED signal lights...
- Wireless seems very consistent, much easier to mount because of this

Cons: - BIG form factor, no one would miss it (kind of good?)
- Zoom function is very choppy
- Very frustrating trying to save/upload content
- Loud when pan/tilt is activated
- Night vision can be sensitive at times

Other Thoughts: I like this camera overall, the video quality is really good even with night vision. Overall this is a great product. I set the motion detection to notify by e-mail and it works pretty well. I would like to see the app get updates as it could use a few more features, but as is this is my FAVORITE part of this device. You do not need a wifi connection to watch and control the camera . I hope they can update the cloud service to make is more user friendly as far as saving content.

NETGEAR Powerline 500 Mbps Nano Kit (XAVB5101)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Eggxactly as described! 04/11/2013

This review is from: NETGEAR Powerline 500 Mbps Nano Kit (XAVB5101)

Pros: - Easy installation, it is all plug and play.
- Secure and stable connection anywhere in my house
- Perfect for gamers living in apartments!
- No need to run pesky cables
- Spot on packaging by Netgear

Cons: - Upload speed is only slightly better than WiFi signal.
- As others have mentioned a pass through would have been nice, but this is not worth docking an egg. All important electronics should be connected via a power strip.

Other Thoughts: I had this product running full speed in less than 10 minutes. Netgear has phenomenal packaging and included high quality cables and instruction booklets with detailed diagrams. We are using this product mainly with a PS3 which actually has a 100% WiFi connection and the download/upload speed is showing consistent numbers. We are no longer experiencing lag in multiplayer, either.
