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)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: +Easy setup, but requires a mobile device with internet connection
+Mini footprint - Measuring 3.6" x 2" x 1", Mini fits anywhere in the house, a tabletop, a wall, or ceiling.
+720p video (really good quality, must select Hi Def option in camera setup), audio recording, and 115 degree view angle, and 33 ft. of night vision (automatic IR)
+The Mini accepts up to a 64GB micro SD card for storage beyond the cloud. Even when away, the Mini will detect movement and send a push notification to mobile devices.
+Cloud Recording - Enjoy included 12 month subscription to cloud storage with 7 day playback through the EZVIZ App
+Placement in your home or office is easy with its small size and use of the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band for better range
+Use the mobile app to view live or recorded footage anytime, anywhere.
+Instant Alerts - Be alerted on your mobile devices if the cameras sense movement with adjustable 1-6 sensitivity levels
+fixed wire ending with USB plug, wall adapter included

Cons: Really none personally. Maybe if there was an option to playback via webrowser on PC instead of mobile app that would be even better ... or maybe there is such an option, but am unaware of it (nothing like that mentioned in brochure though)

Other Thoughts: really nice setup, I like it, works great and serves its purpose

Other Thoughts: Time for benchmarks!

Compared this new Silicon Power SP55 480GB with ATTO & AS SSD benchmarks based on my OCZ ARC 100 480GB (MLC chips) and am truly impressed, this SP55 model seems faster in read category in general or at least comparable in total benchmarks!

SP55 480GB (TLC) vs OCZ ARC 100 480GB (MLC) // SATA3
ATTO: SP55 = 520MB/s read 565MB/s write vs OCZ AR 100 = 457MB/s Read 500MB/s write

Total score: 951 vs 972

NETGEAR GS324 24-Port Gigabit Ethernet Desktop / Rackmount Switch
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Great performance in unmanaged class 07/10/2016

This review is from: NETGEAR GS324 24-Port Gigabit Ethernet Desktop / Rackmount Switch

Pros: 24 x auto-sensing RJ45 gigabit ports
LEDs indicators (not above ports though)
Fanless design (dead silent and staying barely warm)
Wall-mountable (kit included, also the same brackets allow mounting into a 19'' wide rack)
802.1p QoS
Support jumbo frames up to 9,216 bytes
Support 16k MAC address table entries
Packet buffer size: 512KB
Auto-MDI/MDIX eliminates the need for crossover cables
Energy-efficient technology for power savings
Auto-negotiation for automatic connection at the highest common speed between switch and an end device
Non-blocking switching architecture for maximum throughput at wire speed
Plug-and-play; no setup required (transparent design)
Durable and rugged black metal case (looks really pretty)

Cons: Since this switch is unmanaged then I will speak only about this easy plug-n-play "feature". To me personally it is the biggest drawback at same time.
Unmanaged means that switch does NOT assign itself with an IP address, nor it is visible on network with any MAC address, also there is no GUI that you can access over browser to upgrade firmware or change settings ... or recover it when device fails/bricks.

That being said it does NOT support anything fancy like port-based VLANs or LAN trunking (e.g. using 2-4 ports for aggregated uplinks).

Price could be lower a bit, TP-Link provides near same quality and performance and their devices are often on promotion, e.g. currently there is TP-Link TL-SG1024 24-port unmanaged switch on sale at $79.99 in newegg.

Other Thoughts: Pulling 6 GB file from laptop (gigabit NIC, SSD) to PC (gigabit NIC, SSD storage) steady 113 MB/s
Pulling 6 GB file from PC (gigabit NIC, SSD storage) to laptop (gigabit NIC, SSD) steady 112 MB/s

that is around 900 Mbps between devices connected straight to this Netgear switch using Cat5e/6 wiring, not bad!
