Hikvision DS-2CD2132-I Outdoor HD 3MP IP Dome Security Camera 4mm
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Be VERY Careful here! 06/28/2015

This review is from: Hikvision DS-2CD2132-I Outdoor HD 3MP IP Dome Security Camera 4mm

Pros: A compact waterproof camera that provides a great picture and lots of versatility. The IR works well for night pictures, and the motion detection is very good.

Cons: This camera is built for the Chinese market. If you update the firmware from the American Hikvision website, the unit will be "bricked". Hikvision told me "Too bad for you - NewEgg is an unauthorized retailer and we offer NO support". KVision Security simply ignored my e- mails. If you want this camera, pay a little more and buy from an authorized dealer.

Other Thoughts: Thanks to help of some very clever people on the Internet and a lot of time, I was able to get my camera working again (on an older firmware version). I think Hikvision's expectation that the customer should police their distribution channels is unreasonable, to say the least.

HP LaserJet Pro P1102w (CE658A) Up to 19 ppm 1200 dpi USB/Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A nice compact package for personal or light duty office use.

Cons: The setup is clumsy. (Does everybody really want the "Shop at HP" program on their desktop?). The wireless connection is unreliable (see below).

Other Thoughts: I have deployed three of these in small office environments. One works perfectly, but the other two loose connection to the wireless network after printing (not every time), and have to be powered down and back up numerous times each day. I've tested them on several different networks which are stable for all other devices but loose contact with this printer. Seems to be a fairly common problem. HP is of no help at all, preferring to blame the network. I'll continue to use them with the USB interface and hope HP provides a firmware update that solves the problem.

TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Inexpensive Router 10/31/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Current shipping hardware version is 9.1. This is supported by DD-WRT build 25203 which is very easy to flash and seems to work well. I have a number of these routers in various configurations, but none are running on the original TP-Link firmware.

Cons: This is the version with the fixed antennas, so if you break one, you're pretty much out of luck. For a few bucks more, you can get the WR841ND which has the standard detachable antennas.

Other Thoughts: For the price, I think it's pretty hard to beat. I haven't had any issues with signal strength or random disconnects, and have used these in a number of different environments.
