Pros: They look more like regular light bulbs, use only 6.5 watts, produce a brighter white light, appear to produce more light than the 40W incandescent bulbs they replaced, produce much less heat (no obvious radiant heat felt either), and were a great value.
Cons: It takes a couple tenths of a second from the time you flip the light switch until they actually light up.
Other Thoughts: I bought 2-4pks of these to replace 8 each 40W incandescent clear globe bulbs in the master bath along the top of the double vanity mirror. They provide a brighter white light than the globes did. The clear globes, because of the heat they generated, would scorch the dust that naturally collects and had to be removed and scrubbed to clean them. What a PITA! Hopefully, these will not be so troublesome.
My wife was a little weary at first because of the whiter light, but she likes them now that she can see better while applying makeup.
This light fixture went from using 320 watts down to 52 watts. Less electricity and less heat with more light: a win-win-win situation!
Pros: The photos and video this thing takes are truly outstanding. The display looks amazing. It performed great for the first 6 months.
Cons: The Galaxy S II GT-i9100 is an international version not intended for US distribution. You will not get warranty service from Samsung. You cannot access current drivers from Samsung's website either since it auto-detects the region of your IP address and sends you to the US portion of the website which does not list this model. Your best hope of support is foreign-based forums.
Other Thoughts: My phone has now developed an issue with the USB port on the phone where it will no longer allow it to connect to my computer. It also will not allow the phone to charge. As I have discovered, this problem is now popping up in several forums quite often for people in other countries. Samsung, in those places, claims it is water intrusion. I do not see that as my cause.
So now charging my battery must be done outside the phone. I managed to locate and purchase an external charger and two batteries on Axxxxn.
I found a fix, but it requires buying a new $12 PC Board from Hong Kong on exxy, opening the phone, and replacing it. I think I'll just use this phone as I am until it no longer works and consider myself schooled on buying international electronics - even if they are at a great price.
This review is from: Indoor CCTV Security Surveillance 24IR Color CCD Dome Camera Wide Angle Night Vision
Pros: Wide Field Of View (52 degrees), fully adjustable camera angle, weatherproof, full color and infrared. It works w/ Nightowl DVRs!
Cons: Poor documentation. It looks like somebody took the original Chinese and put it through _oogle Translate and printed the literal translation - no language works that way.
Other Thoughts: I had purchased a Nighowl DVR 8 channel unit back in April and one of the cameras failed. Since I was never happy with the FOV on the original cameras, I bought this one. It has the same power supply requirements (12v) and hooked right up to Nightowl's power supply and BNC video connectors. This camera's 52 degree FOV is much wider than the 30 I had with original unit. I will buy more - found some cheaper than Newegg elsewhere, though.READ FULL REVIEW
