Pros: easy to setup with great resolution. The quality and durability is amazing. The lens on the camera is extraordinary. The view on the camera works well both during the day as well as night.
Overall Review: I would recommend this camera for the quality and viewing properties. I am only new to the surveillance systems and cameras but this 8 MP camera does the job. I have been using 8 MP cameras for a little while and they have performed well. There are plenty of options for the cameras that I have not explored yet and to setup the different controls to fine tune the camera.
Pros: I like the fact that I can plug my high end computer into the APC SMC1500C along with my monitor, printer and other components into it and still not having to max out the total power consumption. I like the way the screen is so I can read what I need to see the UPS is working properly.
Cons: I just got the UPS so at this moment I do not have any cons.
Overall Review: I would recommend this UPS to anyone who wants to protect their investment of electronic components. I have just recently started to getting into the line of APC units to protect and to have on battery backup long enough to backup any information from my computer. I have always used surge protectors for all of my electronic components but now changing everything over to battery backup as well. I have whole house surge protection to protect any surges from happening in the home. I will always use surge protection on all electronic components for the added protection but now I am changing over to surge/ battery backup to add to keeping all of my components safe and to keep them from shutting down for a short period of time during a power outage. This is an investment that will always give me peace of mind. I know that APC is the leader of UPS systems of all kinds..
Pros: I liked the video recorder for the ability to mix and match cameras up to 8MP. The ability to upgrade the hard drive to a maximum of 8TB makes for longer recordings. The options of the dvr for setting up the cameras can be done easy enough.
Cons: The lack of using the manual has some flaws as setting up the initial setup. The description for the parts list is lacking. The LaView website lacks certain information on this dvr and sometimes have to search throughout their website to find what you need to. I had to go to YouTube for the rest of the information on the dvr, setup and use as well as setup of the system with the cameras which is better than the LaView website.
Overall Review: I would recommend the video recorder for a good system. The cons are not hindering the dvr system but for the LaView company not being more detailed in their manuals or videos. I am only new to the surveillance system world but I have learned a great deal for doing the research. The LaView has many options which can be great in viewing and recording. I am still learning how to finely tune the dvr for the maximum performance. I am constantly reading, researching and using the dvr for my using the video and recording options.
Pros: I liked the easy setup of the UPS. The easy readout of the UPS shows up well. I was able to quickly setup and use the UPS and the use of the menu as well as the directions are easy to read and use. The quality of the housing is durable and made well.
Overall Review: I would recommend this unit for backup power. This unit is heavy due to the battery pack. I am impressed with the unit and when I plugged it in, the UPS was showing it was about fully charged. I have an LED tv, surveillance system with 8 cameras, my internet box, unmanaged 8 port system for the backup battery system plugs and on the other plugs I have a cable box, an LED tv and a dvd player. I have already had a blip that the electricity has gone off less than a minute without affecting any components. I want to say that my house is protected by a whole house system to protect any surges. I also have circuit breakers for my panel. I protect all of my electronics with surge protectors but now I will be using UPS systems for my components. The initial cost of a UPS system will save any component in my house instead of replacing them which would cost more than a UPS backup system.
Pros: I have been using Seagate hard drives for decades. I love the ability to use this Surveillance Drive for the speed and storage capacity. I have never had a bad Seagate drive due to their reliability and length of time for usage.
Overall Review: I would recommend this hard drive to anyone who wants a 7200 RPM hard drive for the speed. I think the Quality, Durability and storage is excellent. I will keep on buying these drives when I need to upgrade or add to my storage for more total data for computers or my surveillance system. This is a great drive for my needs.
Pros: I have rated this item before
Overall Review: I would buy again as stated in reviews prior to this one.
Pros: I loved the way the cooler fits into a mid tower case and be able to have the room to fit. The nice 120mm fan will be good enough to cool down the cpu. I also like the large fins to remove all the heat away from the cpu. I also like that this cooler is cooling the AMD 8350 cpu with no problems at all.
Overall Review: I would recommend this Arctic cpu cooler to anyone that will fit onto their system. I have not done any bench marking of this cooler yet but the temps for running normal internet searches have kept it at around 30c. I would buy again if I need another cooler for another system.
Pros: G.skill has always performed to the specifications as advertised. These are very well made memory modules and are pleasing to the eye. These are very easy to set up in a system.
Overall Review: I would recommend these memory modules to anyone as long as they are part of the motherboard specifications and recommended by the motherboard vendor. I will buy again if I need to.
Pros: I love the memory and the performance it delivers for my system. I just plugged the memory into my new build with no problems at all. I have been able to reach the 3600 Mhz speed.
Overall Review: I would recommend this memory. I have this in my system:
MSI TRX40 motherboard
AMD 3970X CPU
Evga RTX 2080 Video Card
Evga 1300 Watt G2 Power Supply
Enermax AIO 360 Cooler with 6 Noctua fans
5 - Noctua 140mm Fans
This is a high end computer system which has all that I need. I hope this review will be good enough for anyone to make for themselves.
Pros: I love everything about this graphics card. I have seen the differences in stabililty, performance, enhancements, gameplay and overall performance in all areas and the ability to play latest video games.
Overall Review: I would recommend this video card to anyone who wants to experience more from a great video card and Nvidia always makes it happen. Nvidia cards are the best cards for the video game experience.
Pros: I have purchased over a dozen of these fans for my case as well as using on my AIO coolers. These are the best fans on the market for their performance, durability and the amount of air they move and to keep your computer parts cool. I will always buy these fans for the ability to perform to their specifications.
Overall Review: I would highly recommend these Noctua fans for performance and to keeping your computer cool and to save the parts in the computer from overheating. One note is these fans are louder when running at 3000rpm. I trust in Noctua fans.
Pros: This is good to use and is not horrible to use. This mask is quick and easy to put on and take off.
Cons: You could tear this mask if you are not careful.
Overall Review: I would use this anytime I need to dispose of and for the fact is more comfortable than some other masks.
Pros: I used this in my Enermax 360 AIO cooler after cleaning and flushing before I added the Lemon Lime premix. I was hoping the temps would be better after the clogging of the AIO cooler. I have to tear down and clean the inside of the cooler and then completely flush a couple of times. The temps for my high end Treadripper now is 30 C and hasn't gone above 53 C when benchmarking, gaming or streaming.
Overall Review: I would recommend this premix to use. If I can rebuild my Enermax 360 AIO cooler and I am running my computer now and is cool and stable at 30 C. I have also checked the hoses on my AIO cooler and the liquid is flowing through the hoses are cool when I touch them. I have also touched the pump on the Treadripper CPU and the pump housing is sooo cool taking all of the heat away from CPU. Great Premix to use if and when I need to replace the coolant in my AIO 360 cooler.
Pros: This Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB SSD is one of the best on the market. It has the right amount of memory to store games, software or operating systems on. I have used Samsung SSD's all the time for their quality and durability.
Overall Review: I would highly recommend this SSD to anyone for any and all applications. Very dependable.
Pros: I like using this paste when I help others for their computers. The other people are happy with their thermals.
Cons: I don't use this paste because I use Arctic MX4 paste.
Overall Review: I would recommend this paste if they are not going to use on high end systems.
Pros: I liked everything about this controller. The size, texture, feel, color, smooth finish and the ease of use. The controls moved smoothly once I adapted to my adjustment and speed.
Overall Review: I would recommend this controller to anyone who wants a controller for their PC. I have had other controllers that were not Microsoft controllers which were junk so I will be sticking to the Microsoft controllers from now on. Best product for me.
Pros: I liked this surge protector for the amount of outlets, the position of the outlets, multiple plug ins for cable and telephone and the 3780 Joule protection it covers.
Overall Review: I do recommend this surge protector for your needs. I have been using Belkin for all of my needs for surge protection and am still using those surge protection now.
Pros: I have purchased this gaming pad before and I needed to buy another one. These extended gaming pads are great for having the keyboard as well as a mouse on this pad to protect the desk top and so they don't slide around and I am able to move the mouse freely around on the pad.
Overall Review: I would recommend this gaming pad for all kinds of uses. This is a quality and durable gaming pad. This gaming pad is great in many ways. This gaming pad I bought at least a year ago has lasted. I will buy another one if I need it or if I want to give it as a gift.
Pros: I want to say that the fan splitter helps when there are not enough fan headers on the motherboard. This is the easiest way to connect two fans together.
Overall Review: I would recommend this splitter to anyone without having to buy something different to adding more cables or devices to the inside of your computer case.
Cons: I have tried to do a new install with no results of working. I have tried to setup with my previous ssd but with no results of working. I have tried everything to make the Sabrent ssd to work but DEAD.........DEAD!!!!! BAD.......BAD.
Overall Review: I have many ssd's that are working well. I have Samsung, HP and Crucial ssd's with no problem at all. This is my first Sabrent ssd that is DEAD!!! This is a brick and I will not ever buy from this company again. This is a brick of S..T. I will take this ssd as a loss and will not try to send back to the company because I don't want the excessive pain and anger over dung. I suggest to everyone to use a known company like Samsung, HP, Crucial or other known company and to read reviews for this. I would also tell people to get a better ssd which will be around the same price with better specifications overall. I am done with Sabrent and will never buy another product from them. I thought I could put this into my high end system with great results and I would give this zero eggs but I can not. Very disappointed for the money wasted on a total failed product. This will go to the recycling center for waste.
Pros: I like the cat8 cable for the quality, durability and reliability. Great length for my use for my computer to the router.
Overall Review: I have other Cat8 cables from the same company. I will say the speed of the cable will depend upon the internet provider on the speed.
Pros: I have a Brother MFC-L2685DW printer and I have used the Rosewill RTCG-DR630 Drum unit and it works fine. I can not tell whether or not I am able to yield 12,000 pages yet but I needed to find out if this drum unit will work as advertised. This drum unit fits into the printer and the toner fits well as ever.
Overall Review: I would recommend the drum unit to anyone. I will buy again when I need to replace because it is cheaper to use than the genuine product.
Pros: I like the way the printer dimensions are smaller than the other Brother printers I have. The printer is easier to use and as well as loading paper and ink. I like the display and is easier to read. The printer has great print quality and image. The options you will have are a great advantage over my other printers. The readout for the amount of pages and the ink is amazing. I want to say as I have already seen improvements all around usage of the printer. I will wait to see if the specifications of the printer are the same as advertised. I am very impressed with the printer so far.
Overall Review: I would recommend this printer to anyone. I would buy again if I needed another printer. I would have liked a bigger paper tray but in no way it is a con. I knew what I wanted as far as the printer goes. I have several Brother printers with great success and have quality and durability.
Pros: I have purchased toner cartridges from Rosewill all the time with great results for my printers. I have already reviewed these toner cartridges whether or not they are single or in a box of two.
Overall Review: I would like to be able to say I will always buy these toner cartridges.
Pros: I love the size of the speakers and are not too big. These are more than enough to handle the Kenwood Receiver with 85 watts per channel. I will update when the speakers break in period has occured. These speakers are good sounding with all around audio from highs to lows.
Overall Review: I would recommend these Polk Audio R50 tower speakers in limited spaces or to expand your area of listening. I would buy again if I need to expand my system.
