This review is from: D-Link DCS-6045LKT PowerLine HD 720P Day/Night Cloud Camera Kit
Pros: The D-Link DCS-6045LKT PowerLine HD 720P Day/Night Cloud Camera Kit Is a rare combination of high quality hardware and equally high quality software.
Very easy to set up ,just plug in the power line adapter,and plug in the security camera ,use the my Dlink software and your Samsung Galaxy 6 becomes a home security superstar.The Dlink app ,which is free, delivers full 720 p daytime resolution and allows you to switch between day and night mode ,Zoom and take snaps of whats going on.The snapshots are clear day or night.
While it is meant for indoor use ,there are certain parts of the country ,where as long as you keep it dry,It works outside ,ie on a screened in porch.I live near Miami so temps year round pose no problem,and the night camera monitors best on the porch.
The Night picture is equal to or better than the mid 2000s Sony Night shot ,but not as good as Sonys Color Night Shot.
720p is of course limited to daylight hours and works as good as my 720p tv ,as far as picture viewing ,for all but 2 hours around high noon ,where the picture gets a bit bright and i cant tone it down with software control.
With a High capacity sd card the DCS-6045LKT will record day and night for a long time.
Cons: These cons that i list did not make me take off a star ,at this price point the Camera Kit is a steal!
1 No Bundled SD card
2 No Pan & Tilt /more about this in other.
3 Windows 10 ,I had to download the latest software from Dlinks website
4 To bright between 11am and 1pm ,in color , but once you switch to b/w the picture is fine.
5 Maybe not a con but a plus...Dlinks free Android app is full 720p and the 99 cent app is only 480p
Other Thoughts: I was surprised by the picture quality and the ease of installation ,the Dlink software allows you to add addition cameras to the same setup and that is just what i did. I added a tilt and pan Dlink camera to the back porch by just plugging it in! Dlinks Android app is the best and will not disappoint you.
I forgot to mention in Pros .The Sound is Great you hear the slightest sound!
Also a pro is just sign in via your email address to access the Dlink camera, and the apps motion detector snaps to email is most helpful.
Thanks to Dlink & Newegg for the opportunity to review this camera.
Pros: 3 separate bands ,1 2.4GHz and 2- 5.0 GHz ,a low band that defaults to the best channel and also has a handful of channels if you want a different low band.The high band works the same ,you have a handful of channels on the highband to choose.
Has usb 2.0 and a 3.0 port also can turn any printer into a wireless printer ,just download the printer software at tp links site then make sure your printer software is already on each supporting computer.
USB 2 transfer speeds are what you can expect from any attached harddrive or thumbdrive ,but USB 3 transfer speeds do take a healthy uptick when you have a newer ac1200 wifi card on your laptop.I,ve attached a 1tb portable hard disk to the network and password protected it with tp-links excellent software.The software is awesome and easy to use,click on any option and it is explained function,setting,why and how.
Each laptop is wirelessly getting the same 30mb down and 6mb up as my wired cat 5e desktop,no loss of speed and wireless signal remains excellent all thru the house ,even with hurricane sturdy cement walls of South Florida.
Cons: USB 3.0 speeds could be a little faster
Other Thoughts: I use the Smart connect feature rather than setting up 3 separate ssid"s , TP- Links smart connect automatically connects each and every device to its best channel and bandwidth ,when i enabled guest accounts Smart connect also connects guest devices the same and also hides my 1tb hard disk from their view.TP-Link software enables many NASlike functions.
Now i have no network slow downs when my gamer son is hogging bandwith gaming on his ac1200 alienware,my spouse now has a separate 5.0 channel to watch her soaps on HULU.
I can at the same time watch streaming sports on my older dell precision which only uses the 2.4 on a g wifi card.
Trl-Band is amazing ,so many devices are hooked up sharing my wifi and absolutely no slowdown or stuttering.
1-magic jack phone 3- cell phones 3-laptops 1 printer
Excellent product ,sturdy and hard plenty vents to stay cool .even looks cool like a UFO or Drone!
The software is the BEST ,very easy to setup and the software help school you like you are taking a net+ course.
Pros: Bang for the buck is awesome!
numbers equal the samsung 830 pro ,but it seems a bit quicker than the 830 pro.Easy image upgrade tho Windows 10 only showed 118 gb and the rest unallocated.
Cons: ocz toolbox is an empty toolbox,worthless!
no screws but big deal. Would have like a spacer for an older laptop tho.
Other Thoughts: nice read/write numbers and the eyeball test confirms this is a faster than average value drive,maybe it isnt a value drive ,oh boy!!! that toshiba memory is fast!
Read speed 503,Write speed 429!
All in All a super fast ssd ,bang for the buck is Eggsxcellent.
More hard drive space and the latest flash memory are a nice combo.
I have no need to update the firmware or to use this in a mac.For a Windows 7/8/8.1 &10 pc ,this is top of the line for SSD drives.
