Pros: * Super easy to set up (provided you have an OTG phone). Simply download an OTG camera app from the Google Play Store, plug the camera in, launch the app, and start using.
* Price. Inexpensive is nice.
* The dial to increase the light and snap a picture is easy to use. Software can do this too sooo it isn't that big of a plus.
Cons: * Required a "RIGID" (capable of bearing its own weight) cable camera. The description plainly states (3rd word) that it is "RIGID". It is SO NOT rigid. You couldn't put this into an extended space, such as a wall, without first attaching it to a fish tape or some type of support. This one makes me so mad. Would like to understand what the person who wrote the item's description definition of the word 'rigid' is. Suspect it is different than what the rest of the world's is. :(
* Very grainy video. Expected the best focal distance to be close to the camera but even up close image quality is rather poor.
* Lack of documentation (zero documentation). Granted it is pretty much plug and play but there should have been some directions.
Other Thoughts: The item ships from China so it took a couple weeks (15 days) to arrive. While in our "gotta have it now" world that may seem like an eternity but with the seller stating where it originated from on the front end I can't fault the shipping/delivery time.
While this was an easy transaction through Newegg and is easy to use the camera simply falls short. So much so that I'm looking at options for how to return it. As such I would not recommend this camera. Sorry.
This review is from: SolidRun CUBOX-I4PRO Platform
Pros: Great feature set, terrific footprint
Cons: ZERO customer service from Solid Run, horrible overscan
Other Thoughts: Received one of the first shipped devices. Ordered early based on the wonderful specifications for the device. Hooked it up to a Vizio P50 plasma TV only to be disappointed by significant overscan. Unfortunately my old Vizio plasma TV doesn't allow me to correct the overscan at the TV.
Checking the forums I found that many suffer from the same problem. Added my post to theirs but didn't see a response from Solid Run so I emailed them asking for direction or a means for returning the device. The response I got from them was slow and extremely disappointing. They referred me to the forums for support and as for the return. Well, I'll quote their response below. Notice that any device that has been powered on can't be returned. WOW.
Such a shame because it is really a nice device.
Quoted response from Solid Run
RMA is only for faulty units. As you can read here - <redacted link to solid run terms page to comply with NewEgg policies> "Returns for any unaffected item is permitted within 14 days from the date of receipt of merchandise. After such time, all sales are considered final.....Merchandise that has been powered or reprogrammed can not be returned."
Pros: The unit does what it advertises.
Cons: Build quality isn't the best and the fan is noisy. Okay for an office environment but not where you want quiet.
Other Thoughts: There is a switch in the back to turn the fan off but most drives will get hot enough that the fans should be on.READ FULL REVIEW
