Pros: Simple. Easy to set up. Portable. No wiring. Integrates somewhat with SmartThings. Battery operated, now with rechargeable batteries.
Cons: Some of it's pros are also it's cons. It's portable, so if outside, someone can easily grab it and walk off. Reset it and it's now theirs. There's no way to lock the camera in place. It's just held on with a magnet. Field of view is wide angle so we get a good overview of what's in front, but sometimes we don't need a wide angle and only want a narry field of view covered. No way to block areas out from triggering the alarm. It's pricey, and prices seem to defy gravity as there's little direct competition in it's niche. I've been watching individual add on camera prices creep up from $124 to $169 over the past 6 months.
Overall Review: I would recommend it. It's great for interior, short range, coverage.
Pros: Comfortable, easy to use
Cons: The sound quality when wired is fine. However, when tested with multiple bluetooth devices, it's untenable. The sound is garbled, goes blank for seconds before coming back, only to drop out again for another second or two.
Cons: shame it doesn't hold a charge nor even when fully charged, discharge a high enough voltage to charge your phone. Fully charged, mine puts out 3.1 volts, yet phones require 5 volts. Go figure. It's useless.
Pros: Keeps it's charge
Cons: flashlight button too easily to activate and I do mean easily. It's a protruding push button. Pocket, purse, backpack, it's going to be turned on and you'll find the battery dead every time you go to use it.
Pros: good design
Cons: It's advertised as a keyboard for android tablets. What android tablet uses the old, large, USB2 connections? None that I can think of. I assumed it would be the standard micro USB connection and wound with something I now can't use.
Overall Review: Granted, it's partially my fault as I should have looked at the photo closer, but as all android tablets use the micro USB connector, I assumed that this would use that plug too.
Pros: Can't think of any, now that it's failed and all my data is lost.
Cons: Poor quality control to fail so early and with so little use
Pros: I'd previously given the heat sink 1 star because it would not work with my motherboard. However....
... read my "other thoughts"
Cons: Just make sure there's room under your motherboard for the brackets.
Overall Review: It turns out that the incompatibility issue so many here complain about really is a problem between the motherboard and the computer case. In my instance, I'm using, a HAF932. The access/cooling hole in the computer case, under the CPU location on the motherboard, isn't centered under the CPU (where I'd attach the heat sink mounting brackets). Because of that, not just with this heat sink, any after-market mounting brackets won't work as the gap is too tight between the case and the motherboard.
I'd previously given the heat sink one star, but on second thought, the issue has nothing to do with the heat sink. Any heat sink that required mounting brackets under the motherboard would have encountered the same problem. The only way to resolve the issue would be to cut away part of the case and make the hole bigger so the brackets would fit. I shouldn't have blamed the heat sink in my first review.
The heat sink looks well build and would probably work wonderfully. I mean, very wonderfully.
If you order it, just be sure that you have access under your CPU so you have enough space to attach the heat sink mounting brackets. Ie., that the access hole in the computer case, under the CPU area on the motherboard, is centered under the CPU. If not, you'll run into the same problems that so many other people on here have, who have given the product one star. The problem really isn't with the heat sink. It's an alignment issue with the computer case & motherboard and subsequently the ability to attach deeper mounting brackets on the bottom of your motherboard to attach the heat sink.
I'm not sure how many stars to give the product as I've never used it, but if I didn't have the alignment issue, I've a feeling that I would have given it 5 stars. I gave it 5 here, even though I returned the product, to help neutralise the 1 star I'd previously given it.
The heat sink looks like it would work quite well. Just be sure your computer case allows access to the bottom of the motherboard where the heat sink brackets attach. Don't blame the heat sink for any compatibility issues, instead blame the motherboard manufacturer for not locating the CPU over the case access hole, or blame the case manufacturer for not putting the hole under the CPU location. Just don't blame the heat sink (though they should tell you in bold type to first check to see that you have clear access)
Pros: Attractive design
Cons: first one was DOA. Newegg promptly sent me a replacement that works wonderful.
Pros: Wanted a heart rate monitor and this watch fit the bill
Cons: Strap digs into my wrist, leaving indentations as the metal of the buckle sticks down below the plastic strap where they meet, so the pressure on the wearer's wrist is focused there. Too tight, or worn too long, it'll bleed. Watch is also a bit overly bulky and should have been made thinner. Lots of empty space between the glass surface and the LCD screen below.
Pros: Decent motherboard, shame the cons force me not to recommend it.
Cons: I've had issues with each rebate I've ever submitted to MSI. I bought this product with the expectation of the rebate bringing the total cost down to an acceptable level. Once again, checking their website, i get the message saying "rebate rejected". Googling "MSI, rebate" all I see is other people complaining about MSI not honoring rebates.
Overall Review: I'm only giving it one star as anyone who reneges on their "word", the rebate, I'll never do business with again and won't recommend it to anyone else.
Pros: as advertised.
Cons: none so far
Pros: Works as advertised.
Overall Review: Only have had it for a week, so the real test is to see how it holds up over time.
Pros: Have had issues with other WD drives, but so far no problems with this one.
Pros: Inexpensive monitor, no dead pixels
Cons: no pivot or swivel adjustments. Similar, but more expensive models have it, so it is available for added cost. I can't fairly nit pick about it here in fairness.
Overall Review: I'd buy another with no qualms
Pros: small, portable DVD burner
Overall Review: came with a defective USB cable, but Newegg is shipping me a replacement
Cons: Ordered 2. One works fine, one was DOA right out of the box.
Overall Review: Seems like WD has some quality control issues with their drives. Newegg was helpful in returning the drive though.
Pros: Inexpensive, and good for the sale price of $14.99
Cons: Poorly packed and arrived dented.
Pros: Great case overall
Cons: Not that you really should need a manual, but the picture booklet and minimal instructions in 18 languages that they include is a joke. Too bad it's not the same quality as the box itself is.
Overall Review: A part was missing. Upon calling, I was told that they don't take orders over the phone but the Coolermaster online part request process was easy.
Pros: Capacity & long warranty
Cons: Poor quality control
Overall Review: Have read reviews complaining about defective drives. I hesitantly ordered two and one was DOA right out of the box. The remaining drive now makes an occasional loud click... I have my fingers crossed that it's not going to fail.
