SHIELDeye RSCM-15701W 1280 x 720 MAX Resolution RJ45 High Resolution Wireless IP Camera with Easy Installation and Night Vision
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low cost, good resolution, IR illumination, actuated IR shutter.

After a bit of mucking about, I dug the following RTSP urls out:
rtsp://user:pass@IP:554/iphone/11 (720)
rtsp://user:pass@IP:554/iphone/12 (640)
rtsp://user:pass@IP:554/iphone/11 (320)

Cons: Terrible web interface. Browser detection seems broken, appears to rely on ActiveX controls for Will only send 320 or 640 images using the "Mobile" option. Does not appear to be a way to produce images at a higher resolution.

Other Thoughts: Use RTSP and your cam backend of choice and its pretty reasonable.

ASUS USB 2.0 External Blu-Ray 6X Writer with BDXL Support Model SBW-06D2X-U/BLK/G/AS

3 out of 5 eggs Good drive, bad enclosure 11/26/2013

This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 External Blu-Ray 6X Writer with BDXL Support Model SBW-06D2X-U/BLK/G/AS

Pros: The drive itself is fine, but you'll be best served removing it from the included USB enclosure. I used it to replace a DVD-RW in a SSF Dell desktop. Works great. The drive is manufactured by Panasonic. Its front panel is a non-standard size (perhaps 1-2mm larger than normal), but uses the normal clip based mount so it can be swapped. On rebate the drive was ~42, make it about half what a bulk packed slim BDRW would cost.

The internal interface is SATA 2, with the mini type power connector.

Cons: The USB chipset is in the enclosure is terrible. I wager many of the issues other purchasers have had are the result of it.

Also, the drive and enclosure consume considerably more power than two USB ports can reasonably provide. The drive is rated at 1.6A @ 5v, I'd guess that the USB interface probably requires another .2A, giving a total of 1.8A. The labeling on the enclosure lists 2A, which should be a worst case requirement. The USB 2.0 spec states that a port can provide up to 500mA, so from two ports you should only be able to get 1A, leaving you at least .8A short. I'd bet the coaster issues are the result of the drive browning out.

Other Thoughts: Shuck the case, keep the drive. On rebate the drive was a good deal.
