Pros: I liked that the motherboard is ultra durable and feels less susceptible to damage/wear than previous motherboards I've owned, though this could just be the perception of how it looks and not anything material. I like that it can handle an identical stable overclock as my Gaming 7 motherboard. I also like that they've reinforced the PCI-E boards with the metal around the ports to support these monstrous current day video cards.
Cons: I did not like the color scheme, seems very Windows 7 to me. I also didn't like that it was so bright in my case, but that feature can be disabled via the Bios. The Bios while somewhat similar to my Gaming 7, feels very Super Meat Boyish... The features are all the same within the Bios as my Gaming 7 and I was able to reach an identical overclock to my Gaming 7 using the same processor/paste (4.8Ghz).
Other Thoughts: I experienced an oddity with this motherboard altering my overclock in Windows from 4.7 to 4.8 and back and forth despite not changing the Bios. I'm not sure what that is about, but I just ignore it as it is stable. Another thought is the what is motherboard trying to solve in the market? Either you pay about $170 for a blue/white motherboard or you pay $200 and change for a red/white/black motherboard. Feature wise having owned their Gaming 7 and this one, I honestly can't tell the difference besides some cosmetics physically and in the Bios. I guess to each their own.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: To be honest I was hesitant having read some reviews about this drive not lasting very long, but I'm actually quite surprised that it is still going strong as my boot drive and is actually faster than my Samsung 830 EVO. In benchmarks this drive has sequential read/write/mixed speed of 484 MB/s while my Samsung 830 EVO has sequential read/write/mixed of 404 MB/s. I've owned various other SSDs that didn't even work out the box that were from a major SSD manufacturer.
Cons: This might sound trivial, but the packaging was a thing of nightmares. The clamshell plastic that requires scissor surgery . Other than that, I'm happy with the SSD.
Other Thoughts: As others have stated this drive is an upgrade over a traditional laptop platter drive and better than some older SSDs that I've tested/owned. I would recommend this product to friends/family, especially for this space/price point.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EZVIZ Mini HD 720p WiFi Home Security Camera with Motion Detection, 130 degree View, Night Vision, Works with Alexa using IFTTT (Special Offer 12 Month Cloud Storage w/ 7 day Playback)
Pros: I was excited about this camera because of its really small footprint/size. The setup was easy on my Apple devices, but certainly not on my Android (Nougat OS), which I'll get to in my cons. The picture quality isn't bad, slightly slow on registering picture movement. All in all a very simple device, but probably price a bit high at retail.
Cons: Setup wasn't easy for my Android like it was for my Apple products. I couldn't get it to work on my Nexus 6P w/ Nougat 7.0. It kept saying it couldn't connect to the Wifi. So I tried my iPad and my iPhone and both worked very easily. As stated by another person, the camera does get warm to the touch and the camera feed isn't really live, there is a 1-3 second delay.
Other Thoughts: Overall I feel like the market is already saturated for this need and I honestly wouldn't recommend this item to a friends/family based on my setup experience. I also don't like that the cloud service costs and it does not come with a MicroSD card by default.READ FULL REVIEW
