D-Link 5-Port EasySmart Gigabit Ethernet Switch - Lifetime Warranty (DGS-1100-05)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid metal construction, eco-friendly (plain) packaging, VoIP and Surveilance QoS function, gigabit lan

Cons: short power cable limits deployment options, did not include a ethernet wire, had to change computer subnet to connect initially

Other Thoughts: Installation of this switch was a bit more difficult than other switches, but my experience with managed switches (other than routers) is somewhat limited. I was able to quickly connect to it with the minor hiccup of changing the subnet of my PC. After some easy tweaking of the switch through its management software to connect it to the rest of my home network, I was able to set up the surveilance QoS. It is a good idea in general, but I didn't notice a marked improvement in quality/throughput from my surveilance equipment. This is probably because my network is sitting behind a router that doesn't support this functionality.

Overall this is a solid product that is only diminished by the use of a more obscure subnet (-1 egg). If you have some knowledge of how to configure a home network, you should have no problem getting this product up and running. If this sounds like you, then this product receives my resounding recommendation. If not, then I still recommend this product, just understand that there is a little bit of additional technical understanding that you will need to acquire.

TRENDnet TV-IP751WIC 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Wireless Day / Night Cloud Camera
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Installation was drop-dead simple - pop the CD into your PC and follow the instructions. If your router doesn't have a WPS the process will be a bit more tedious. Metal stand is sturdy enough for the camera. Easy access via TrenNet's cloud service works on my iPhone4 and laptops (PC and Mac). I've had trouble accessing from my business PC at work, but that is likely caused by our internal firewall. Camera quality is clear enough for indoor use.

Cons: Power cable seems a bit short. There probably isn't much variability in length between units, so I expect this will be an issue for others. The one that came with my unit was a little over 3ft long. I understand Paul's (on the Mesa) concern about the base combining metal and plastic components causing unnecessary wear on the plastic pieces. The unit came with rubber washers, but if the unit is constantly broken down and moved those will wear quickly and require replacement.

Other Thoughts: I call it a 'fun toy' because the image clarity of this unit just isn't up to par with security equipment I've deployed at my residence (Q-see), even for the price. This would be suitable for keeping tabs on a babysitter, in a child's room, or watching a pet while you're away. The night-vision mode provides a very short range of visibility (<10ft), so the unit is basically use-less in all but the smallest rooms at night. Definitely not for use outdoors. If the end-user were looking for a monitoring device in normal lighting conditions indoors, I would definitely recommend this product. Otherwise look for something more security-oriented.

Bluetooth A2DP Audio Receiver Adapter FM Transmitter For iPhone iPad iPod Touch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Perfect to use with factory radio 05/14/2013

This review is from: Bluetooth A2DP Audio Receiver Adapter FM Transmitter For iPhone iPad iPod Touch

Pros: Easy installation, came with extra button batteries, broadcasts on ANY FM frequency

Cons: Pictures show what I can only assume is a microphone that plugs into the line-in on the unit. It wasn't included (-1 egg)

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent unit. Since it does everything that I would expect a BT receiver/FM transmitter to do, for the price it bests the competition. Connection was a cake-walk with an iPhone 4.
