Pros: The DVR worked for 7 months. Easy enough to set up.
Cons: Laggy software. Laggy network. I have very high speed internet, there is no reason it should be so laggy.
It died when I hooked up a monitor with a longer VGA cable. Kaput! It's not the hard drive or monitor. No signal at all. Now I am without a security system, just these useless cameras...
Other Thoughts: Stay away from Rosewill products. It's been nearly a week since I filed my RMA, they replied once asking for the same information I entered in my RMA. Basically gave me a runaround.
That's cool though, I think I'm gonna check out Floureon's products, and maybe put the Shield DVR on the wall as a decoration. Or something.
Update: WARNING computer tech people, please steer clear of the company Rosewill.
I recently sent a defective product back, 7 months old, one year warranty. Great, I'll get it replaced for free.
2 months of RMA procedure, finally got my replacement today. Zero documentation. Upon opening the package, I thought it was a little suspect that they reused my bubble wrap and ziploc bag (for the power unit). But thought to myself well, they probably just repaired the defective mainboard in the DVR.
So, I proceeded to install the hard drive, hook it all back up to the camera system (that I had already installed through a complex network from the interior of my home to the exterior). Plugged up the monitor and power cable and then...
NO SIGNAL!? Surely they tested the replacement before they repackaged it and sent it back out to their valued customer who spent good money on their product expecting it to work and if not, expecting the company to honor their return and replacement policies. So I continue..
Ok, maybe its the monitor, or the hard drive that will not allow the signal to pass, so I test known good hard drives and monitors. No signal. Black screen. Power light on, HDD light off. What gives Rosewill? Don't care about your customers? Cool story bro. I will make sure that I do everything in my power to make sure everyone knows about your terrible products and terrible customer service, and terrible business practice of sending broken merchandise back to customers after proving its broken. Never again, Rosewill, never again.
Again, that name is:
Do not ever buy anything from ROSEWILL.
ROSE WILL RIP YOU OFF.
This review is from: EVERCOOL FAN-EC4007M05CA 40mm Case Fan
Pros: Small profile, fits in tight spaces.
Cons: Not too loud, but loud enough to hear.
Gets a little warm after being on only about 10 seconds (lip test)
Other Thoughts: To soon to tell how long it will last... if it was $5 cheaper, you would have got 5 eggs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 4 pin connector is EXACTLY as pictured, with the divider spaced further out. THIS is exactly what I needed for the HP Touchsmart 600 AIO. This most excellent design is compatible with both 3 and 4 pin standard PC fans.
Cons: Does not plug into 3 pin standard PC fan slots, but there are so many other brands out there that do. This product works for those projects where a standard 3 or 4 pin fan adapter simply wont work (such as the case with the HP Touchsmart 600 AIO)
Other Thoughts: Also like the fact there are provisions for another fan if I need it somewhere else on the chipset. Plug and play :)READ FULL REVIEW
