This review is from: Logitech C615 HD WebCam
Pros: Good picture, good sound - according to folks on the other end for Skype sessions.
Cons: Haven't found a way to reduce the resolution on my end (to less than 1080/HD) to accommodate my friends living around the world with slow connections. This could be a Skype issue - not being able to throttle down my traffic to allow my other party more headroom.
Other Thoughts: Have had a bunch of cameras before - and all but these higher end Logitech's have been useless. I'll stick with them until they sell me a lemon - but I don't bottom feed and expect the world, either. You usually get what you pay for.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BUFFALO LS-W2.0TGL/R1 2TB LinkStation Pro Duo Network Storage
Pros: Nothing worth mentioning. It works for basic features.
Cons: This unit may be fine for home use, although you still have the performance issues. But try to use this in a domain environment and good luck. Our first hurdle was the domain administrator password. It was too complex for the Buffalo drive to handle, so we had to create a dummy acct to get past this. The domain security tie-in does not work properly, and the web interface for configuring this is awful. So now we've had to lower our desired security settings to get it to work. I do not recommend this box in and office/domain setting. Really unhappy with it.
Other Thoughts: Good luck getting any support from these people.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tools from WD website (did not bother with the CD, as per my usual) worked fine - copied all data and boot records from the older drive to the new drive, connected through a USB adapter. Took out the old drive, put in the new drive, and booted up - no sweat. (It's not always that easy ...)
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: As usual, have your own cable and screws around. I have to second some who have said that packaging of this OE drive was poor: while it came in bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts, ALL of the bubbles on one side of the drive were completely flat (!), and I had visions of how hard it had to have been dropped to accomplish that - but maybe they got popped in some other manner. Disconcerting, nonetheless ...READ FULL REVIEW
