Pros: I really love the cool graphics of this drive. It would compliment any white and blue theme very well. My focus on using this drive is for portable backup storage and it works great. I am using a USB to 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD Cable from startech to connect it to my pc and I got a read of 428 and write of 91. I am very pleased with that. This drive is relatively inexpensive and very light.
Cons: My biggest issue with this drive is the size. 120GB just isn't enough anymore. Running your OS off this would be fast, but a few games it will fill up very quick. There is no need to remove an egg because if your looking at a 120gb drive you know what your getting.
Other Thoughts: Connecting through USB was simple. I used the disk management tool in windows to format it. There were no issues at all. I would recommend this drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia 200 Gaming Headset - White
Pros: Packaging - This headset was packaged in your usual headset box and sat inside a plastic form fitted mold that allowed for easy removal. There was no crazy amount of ties that required a knife to release it from the package. Simple and practical. Very good!
Design - There is a lot of thought that went into the design of this headset. It is lightweight and comfortable to wear. The padded loop that holds it to your head allows for a good snug fit while not making it cumbersome to wear. The ear pads are large enough to fit over the ear for a snug comfortable fit. The retractable mic is a large bonus. So many headsets in the past have broken because the mics cant hold up to daily abuse. Having a retractable mic should help with that.
Color - The white headset is very nice. I was impressed to see how many colors this headset actually came in. You would be hard pressed to not find a color to match your computer or your environment.
Customer Support - I did have to contact customer support and had a very good experience. I contacted them through email and even during a holiday weekend the responses were fast and professional. A+ for support!
Sound - I would say the sounds from this headset are solid. Very good lows and nice quality highs. A comfortable pleasurable experience and others told me the mic quality was very good.
Cons: Quality - I am concerned with the quality of this headset. It is so lightweight I cant help but feel that it may break easy. The wires feel thin and cheap. I imagine they will not hold up to many tugs from swivels in your chair. However, Its unfair to knock any eggs off of concerns, so I wont.
Crackling - I am getting some crackling. Its difficult to point out when its happening and there really is nothing to adjust as there are no drivers that come with this headset. I will knock an egg for this. I'm not sure if I just lucked out on the speaker lottery or if its going to be a trend with this headset, It will be interesting to read other users reviews.
Other Thoughts: Customer support said.. "No drivers are necessary." "Thank you for your question. Since your device is not a USB device, it is an analog product. Analog products do not need dedicated drivers to work in any operating system.
If your product is a headset, it is run off of the soundcard drivers that are already installed. If the product still does not work, please make sure your motherboard audio drivers are updated to the most recent version."
My issue was that I had the wrong playback device enabled on my sound settings. I contacted them assuming I needed a driver that I could not find.
I would think this headset would be priced more in the 50 dollar range. The large variety of colors available makes this headset desirable and if it wasn't for the slight crackling that I would get I would surely consider purchasing again.
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-NC220 N300 Wi-Fi Network Day / Night Cloud Camera (White)
Pros: This is my first time owning a cloud camera. There was a quick installation guide that helped me through the setup process which was honestly quite simple and flawless. I used another computer on the network and plugged the RJ-45 in long enough to set it up. From there I was able to use the wireless connection and moved the camera anywhere in the house. The camera included an extension for the power plug which was nice to give the camera the range from the outlet that I required. I'm about 8ft from the source with room to spare. From what I see you have to use the tpcamera interface to view your camera or any recordings from it. This worked well. You have the ability to use a night setting which allows you to see the room in the dark. Or during the day you can see things quite clearly using the day setting. The colors are not amazing and the picture quality is not HD, but honestly I wouldn't expect that out of a camera that is supposed to use little resources. Through the apps interface you can press the record button and even take a snapshot of the image. We have an elderly person living with us and I think this is a great tool to check in on him through out the day and make sure everything is ok. The package came with a 3m tape cutout of the base that would allow you to stick the camera to the wall. There is also a mic that will transmit the noises near the camera. I did most of my monitoring using my galaxy s4, however you can use your pc too. Just make sure you read the setup guide.
Cons: I have not found anything I did not like about this camera. There was a couple times when i tried to login to the tpcamera interface and It showed the camera offline, but the issue did not persist.
Other Thoughts: I would absolutely recommend this camera to anyone looking to monitor someone or something from their phone of another pc. I wanted to raise a couple concerns that I had while using the camera. Maybe I am mistaken but I was under the impression this camera could be motion activated. I would like to set it up were it would start to record on motion. This would be ideal and I have not seen this as an option anywhere. Perhaps future firmware updates will give this option.READ FULL REVIEW
