Pros: It came quickly from Newegg
Cons: Purchased the Star Tech USB3SSATAIDE USB 3.0 to SATA or IDE Hard Drive Adapter Converter and the first time I used it after hooking up the power supply it started smoking one of the circuits. I immediately pulled the power. Since it ruined one HD, I don't wish to try another.
Pros: I like the camera. I bought two of it and the two of the 5222. I like the 5020 for ease of installation, sharpness of the picture and ability to use the features from my iPhone. the pan and tilt allows me to purchase less cameras then I currently have (ABS bought in 2009 - they are starting to die out now). Yes I would recommend the camera.
Cons: When I have to reset my wifi, I loose the cameras and have to plug one back into the router via cat 5/6, but then they all come back on.
Overall Review: I've played with the push notification based on sound and movement and finally just left one on - too many notifications. I haven't tried local recordings yet but that's next.
Pros: Decent Camera (bought 2 just a little over one month ago) - but my current cameras (starting to die out now) were ABS and they were purchased in 2009. I like the ability to pan and tilt from my iPhone, listen in to noise level and respond back thru the camera.
Cons: The focus leaves a lot to be desired. I couldn't find a way to focus it except by manually turning the focus ring on the camera. If there is a way please let me know. So having the scene that I want to capture, means either having someone help me at the big screen or viewing on my iPhone.
Overall Review: The 720 is not something that I see much value in so, future purchases will probably be the cheaper model (also bought 2 a month ago), the 5020L which is a good basic camera. One other issue is wifi connectivity. If your wifi goes down or you need to reset it it, you need to connect one camera to via cat 5/6 and then all cameras are all connected. I'd keep one near your router.
Pros: Looks good and sounds good while it worked
Cons: After about 5 months, it still lights up and appears to bluetooth connect but no music can be heard. I've tried other sources and all appear to connect but no music. Tried removing battery to reset it but no difference. there is no manual on the Planet Audio website.
Pros: Great looking Network Camera. When I apply power, it lights up.
Cons: The software after loaded on to my two XP Pro computers (one desktop and one laptop) can't be located. So I have no idea if it works. I will give it a few more days and if I don't hear back from ABS will send it back to NewEgg.
Overall Review: Should be simple.
Pros: The unit looks like it will take punishment and still work and that's good. I plan to use it for longer term storage and not moving files on and off it frequently. Getting a $10 rebate back.
Cons: The unit is extremely slow. It has taken me two hours to move 15 GB worth of files onto the drive. The other USB drives that I bought (16 GB) took minutes not hours.
Pros: Bought this for my wife so that she could work on her projects without kicking me off my computer. It is small, light and compact, easy to move from room to room or around town. It does everything you need a computer to do (unless your a gamer). I loaded up MS Office and it works great. Ordered an extended battery (NewEgg didn't carrry) and now have 5 hours of battery plus the 3 hour battery that came with it. The WiFi works great. The keyboard is big enough for the normal person. The price was great and the unit is well worth the cost. Bought a LG DVD Rewriter (USB) to load my programs and it worked great.
Cons: The only issue is that touchpad. The left and right "mouse" click are on the sides of the touchpad. If you spend anytime with this computer would need to invest in a mouse. Attached a (USB) wireless MS mouse and went to work almost immediately.
Overall Review: This would be perfect for a student or a busy traveler that is limited for space. Although if you want to watch DVDs on the road, this is not the unit for you.
