Great Value

Zmodo PKD-DK4216 4CH 960H DVR w/ 4 x 600TVL Day/Night Outdoor Cameras 3G Mobile Access Surveillance Kit
Zmodo PKD-DK4216 4CH 960H DVR w/ 4 x 600TVL Day/Night Outdoor Cameras 3G Mobile Access Surveillance Kit

Pros: For the price any of these Zmodo's are hard to beat. The 50 ft cables the video cameras came with are a lot longer than I realized and I was happy to be able to wire them all up as I wanted without having to get any more cable.

Cons: The infrared "night vision" only works a few feet out.. Which is pretty typical for all infrared and cameras of this sort, its a lot better in doors though. I wouldn't count this as too big of con, just be aware it wont do all that much..

Overall Review: Setting this up wasn't the easiest. If you have a computer with Internet Explorer 8 it's MUCH easier, but the required addin will not install on IE9 no matter how you set your internet settings/security! Also I wasn't able to get it setup to view from my phone directly; what I ended up doing was getting the LogMeIn app for iphone/droid and then I would just remote into the computer that had the network connection directly to the DVR, so I could still view the video feed from any computer OR smart phone but it was a little more round about..

Most Critical Review

Not for running/sports

Klipsch Gray Image S3 3.5mm Connector In Ear Graphite Grey Noise-Isolating Earphone
Klipsch Gray Image S3 3.5mm Connector In Ear Graphite Grey Noise-Isolating Earphone

Pros: Good sound quality, decent bass, great noise isolation when they're in right.

Cons: Do not stay in while doing anything other than sitting! Most of the quality and noise isolation comes from the fact that they are bent inward and get rightttt up against your ear drum. However, they don't stay in AT ALL while running. Which is why I bought them..

Overall Review: Klipsch make some GREAT products, but I wouldn't say this is one of them.. Knocked 2 stars because they WON'T stay in your ear while running/moving.

Do not buy!

TRENDnet TEW-805UB AC1200 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter
TRENDnet TEW-805UB AC1200 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter

Pros: USB 3.0

Cons: I got this along with a new D-Link AC router and a cheaper wireless N rosewill adapter. Everything worked great except for this Trendnet ac adapter. The software included is trash, and hangs or doesn't launch at all. The drivers included are old, and you still have to get new ones from website. The adapter just DIDNT WORK at all most of the time When it did work it was getting 10-50mbps connections, where the cheap old N adapter was getting 300mbps! There was twice where this adapater made one of my computers blue screen.

Overall Review: I am on Windows 7 64 bit, and I work in IT as a system administrator so I can assure you this is not user error. I'm pretty much furious that there's responses to the negative reviews here on newegg from the manufacturer but they still haven't responded to the ticket I sent in 6 days ago! They said 1-2 business days! Still nothing. I used to like TrendNet, but the poor quality of this product combined with the even bigger lack of support from TrendNet has ruined them for me. Thank goodness newegg has great customer service and I'll be able to return this hunk of junk.

ASUS Laptop K53 Series Intel Core i5 2nd Gen 2430M (2.40GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium K53E-BBR4

Pros: Core i5 is VERY fast, better than AMD's Quad cores.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Got this for $400, but it's probably worth close to $600 even as a refurb.
