This review is from: ZyXEL IPC3605N 1280 x 720 MAX Resolution RJ45 CloudEnabled Network Fixed Camera
Pros: The camera was fairly inexpensive for the expected functionality. Delivery from newegg was fast.
Cons: There was no wall mount included with the camera in the original packaging. I had to email zyxel support to have them send me a wall mount. They do so and shipped it overnight so that was nice support. Unfortunately, the camera can't be setup as it will not connect to any LAN. In order for the wireless functionality to be set up, it has to be originally set up with a direct connection. I have tried three cat5/6 cables in three different spots on my router/cable modem. These are spots that had a NAS box and a small mini itx server running fine off of. It was a waste of 100 bucks.
Other Thoughts: I own a zyxel NAS box and it did not have any issues, but this camera has been nothing but a headache. I would recommend to anyone to consider a different brand.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The price of the hard drive was good at the time. It was used in a NAS box and when it was working, it was very nice and quick.
Cons: The drive is dead. It just clicks when the NAS box is turned on. It lasted about 6 months, which from my experience with hard drives, is extremely poor. This is my first Hitachi drive and as far as first impressions go, this was poor.
Other Thoughts: I have had good experience with other companies drives. I use a Seagate in my htpc and it has been running fine for a couple of years and gets far more use.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very inexpensive. It has a small footprint.
Cons: Front panel hinges are very weak and the standoffs are part of the case mold. They still function. I just prefer the real screw in ones. There is nor room to tie off excess cable length. The cables included with the case need more room than what is given.
Other Thoughts: Worth the money. Get what you pay for.READ FULL REVIEW
