This review is from: Synology CLP1 IP Camera License Pack for 1 User
Pros: * Excellent price:feature ratio
* Great software
Cons: * None, if expectations aren't unreasonable.
Other Thoughts: NAS surveilance solutions aren't for rugged or warm environments. Don't use them there.
If you need to get a camera setup with less than 200 fps, you're on a tight budget and on a time crunch (or any two), this setup is amazing.
This review is from: Archos 3 Vision - 8GB MP3/MP4 Player (501338) - CHOCOLATE BROWN
Pros: * It plays OGG _and_ FLAC!!! :-)
* Very good audio quality
* Quasi-intuitive touch interface
Cons: * Interface could use a slight retouching. A quick glance at the manual and you'll know why that weird circle pops up in a list--otherwise it's just a weirdly placed circle.
* Often slow to respond to touch
Other Thoughts: * Not a good choice for people with large hands or thick fingers.
* The so-called "Chocolate Brown" is really closer to puce.
I've found that when the screen goes to sleep, a quick tap of the Back/escape button brings it out of it's power saving mode. From there, anything will respond if you touch it and give it up to a half second to act on your request.
It doesn't support playlists, but I don't use them so I don't consider this a con.
Also, the FM radio works quite well with the headphones it comes with...not quite as well my Sony headphones. As stated in the manual, it uses the headphones as the antenna.
Pros: Convenient size, light weight, fun lighting effect during hard drive access, is a variation of my favorite color.
Cons: I can't think of any.
Other Thoughts: I'm pretty stingy so shelling out the dough for this little guy was difficult for me to do. I needed a convenient, portable method of backing up my files that was easy to support in Windows and Ubuntu. I bit the bullet and it works like a charm. Mission accomplished.
Oh, the Seagate Manager software that comes on the hard drive is, by my best guess, very similar to Windows Backup (but smaller) for Windows Vista/Server 2008 which is logically similar to rsync in Linux. That being said, there are no proprietary file formats to worry about. The software that comes on the drive is designed for Windows only.
