The K70 LUX is a great addition to Corsair's mechanical lineup of keyboards. This keyboard not only looks great, but functions great as well. While the Corsair Utility Engine software can be complicated, it does give the user a great deal of control over the keyboards amazing lighting and functions.
Cons: As mentioned above, the Corsair Utility Engine software can be complicated, especially for the novice user. However, it is fully functional, and there is a great deal of help available online. Still, there is a great deal of room left for improvement to make the software "easier" and more intuitive.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is just a fantastic keyboard. I'm not sure what else to say about it, other than it works, and deserves the high marks it receives.READ FULL REVIEW
Can be easily mounted to a wall/ceiling or sit on a desk.
Extended power cord.
The TP-Link NC200 Cloud Camera is nice inexpensive option for those looking to add a little extra security to their home or office. You can use it to see who's at the door (what we are using it for), as a baby monitor, to monitor pets, or anything you want to keep an eye on while home or away.
The camera has a wide range of "advanced" options you can access via your web browser, including the following.
Frame rates of 5 to 20 FPS.
Low, medium, and high image quality settings.
Time stamps and custom OSD message.
Email and FTP notifications.
Time, date, and account management options.
A full system log.
As well as all the network, cloud, and connection options of course.
You can setup the camera to record to a PC as well. Via the web browser, you can simply hit record or take a snapshot. With the PC app (TP-Link Camera Control) you can do the same, or setup a recording schedule. Via the Android app, you can also take snapshots and record.
The built-in mic sound quality may not be the best, but it's not bad, at least not in our usage. We can easily hear what's going on in the hall and make out voices and conversations.
The camera can also be setup as a small range extender for your network. The range will of course depend on your local environment, but you can use it to add other cameras or devices that may otherwise be on the edge of your wireless range.
The Android app is pretty simple and easy to use, with simple settings such as resolution (640x480 and 320x240)
We have been using the NC200 Cloud Camera for a couple weeks now, and it's been working flawlessly. Overall it seems like a great little camera and would easily recommend it for anyone looking for an easy and inexpensive Wi-Fi camera.
Cons: This version does not include infrared lights to see at night, and does not work well in low light. For this, you can order the day/night version (TL-NC220).
The browser plugin for the live-feed comes in two versions, IE and non-IE, and only seems to work on your primary display. We tested this in the latest versions of Firefox, IE, and Chrome. So if you happen to use more than one monitor, the live-feed video may not load on your other displays. It will just show a black screen.
Other than that, we really have not had any problems with the camera, it works exactly as expected and intended.
Other Thoughts: For the price, you really do get a nice camera, with a lot of great features. It makes a great addition to the TP-Link line of products. Love it!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This Seagate 10TB IronWolf NAS HDD is a sweet deal, a solid drive built for heavy workloads in a NAS environment. We tested the drive in both a desktop NAS (Netgear ReadyNAS 314) as well as our home server, and in both cases it performed flawlessly.
The drive is rated with a max sustained transfer rate of about 210MB/s, we saw about 230MB/s on average, so not bad at all. This was on our server, your transfer speeds over your network will depend on your network hardware limitations.
Only having the drive in use about 2 weeks as of this review, I can't say much about it's longevity, but so far it's performing as advertized. We have put it under as much of a load as we can, in both the NAS and server, with up to 6 users all accessing the drive at the same time. It's easy to see we are not even coming close to maxing out the drives potential.
My experience with the drive is on par with many of the other reviews giving it a solid 5-egg rating. The point is, it works, and it works as designed.
Cons: None as of yet.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this seems like a great drive, and I would easily recommend it to anyone looking for high-capacity NAS solutions.READ FULL REVIEW
