Pros: Small, low wattage Haswell box suitable for 24/7 HTPC use.
Other Thoughts: Got this to replace a very old Athlon-based HTPC with IDE drives. I keep this running 24/7 with Windows Media Center under Win8.1Pro as a DVR for OTA television streamed from my network attached tuner (HDHomeRun Plus). Using an effiecient 3TB USB3.0 drive for video storage. Controls nicely with the Rosewill WMC remote control from Newegg. Really happy with the setup for what it's intended for...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great quality for online-delivered video.
Built-in lens-cap is uber convenient.
Software is decent for one-click uploads to YouTube and Facebook.
Long battery life
Nicely compressed H.264 video means over 6 hours of recording on a 16gb card
Optical Zoom rocks.
Cons: No built-in memory, but SD memory is cheap.
Other Thoughts: Just keep in mind that this only costs about ten thousand pennies.
No, it's not 1080p. If you want 720p or 1080p, you're going to pay more than you will for this camera.
You'll also need to kick out the dough for an SD card.
Resolution is 720x480 at 60i, and more than adequate for making nice home videos to share in blogs, youtube or email.
This review is from: SCEPTRE Sceptre 46" 1080p 1080p LCD HDTV X46BV-1080p
Pros: Native 1080p at an amazing price
Cons: The remote has zero-range. Thankfully, I only use it to switch sources...
Other Thoughts: I wish I could give my television 5 stars... Everything about it is exactly what I wanted in a 46" 1080p LCD. The number of inputs rocks. I use it to play movies and streaming web-content off a computer as well as a blu-ray (just dumped cable.... no regrets!). My kids play computer games and Wii games on it. This television is the complete video solution for my living room, and is a great source of family-time with my kids.
But the remote sucks.
I had a Septre 30" LCD (also from Newegg, which I sold for $350, three years after I bought it for $500. The person who bought the 30" from me is very pleased with her purchase, and the sale made is easy for me to upgrade.
I trust this brand name, and Newegg.
