Most Critical Review

Firmware/Software extremely buggy.

Amcrest 1080P WiFi Security Camera 2MP (1920TVL) Indoor Pan/Tilt Wireless IP Camera, Home Video Surveillance System with IR Night Vision, Two-Way Talk for Pet, Nanny Cam Baby Monitor IP2M-841W (White)
Amcrest 1080P WiFi Security Camera 2MP (1920TVL) Indoor Pan/Tilt Wireless IP Camera, Home Video Surveillance System with IR Night Vision, Two-Way Talk for Pet, Nanny Cam Baby Monitor IP2M-841W (White)

Pros: None

Cons: I'd purchased 3 Amcrest Pro HD to replace 3 Foscam FI9821P cameras. One camera was DOA, second camera was out of focus on the left side. Firmware/software is extremely buggy. Cameras will randomly restart by itself. All 3 cameras exhibit recording gaps on the SD card or not showing up on the Amcrest IP config viewer through ethernet. Accessing cameras through cell phone ( free Amcrest View Pro software ) is hit or miss. Sometimes access is within a few seconds, mostly I get " timed out, failed to connect ". I'm guessing it's an Amcrest server issue.

Overall Review: I do not recommend Amcrest Pro HD cameras. All three cameras were replaced due to issues, 0ne replacement was "Refurbished" By the time the cameras were replaced and exhibited the same issues, it was too late for a refund. I am stuck with these cameras, hopefully a new firmware/ software will address the issues.

Exellent inexpensive board

Pros: Small form factor HTPC.

Cons: SATA connectors are stacked and mounted sideways. I had to dremel a hole in my Antec NSK2480 case to route the sata cables. The board flexes more than other boards that I've own.

Overall Review: I highly recommend this board in the 100 dollar range. I'd paired this board with a Intel i5-6600 and an old Antec NSK2480 case for a quiet HTPC setup.

Pros: Relatively quiet fan.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I'm using it in a home theater pc. I don't usual go for rebates, but a chance on this one. Received rebate within 5 weeks.

Quiet and spacious case.

Fractal Design Define R5 Black Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case

Pros: Overall excellent build quality. Shipped in a sturdy box.

Cons: Hard drive mounting sleds need some improvement with addition sound dampening. As usual, the price dropped 20 bucks after I'd purchased it. Big for a mid tower case. Big is good. Case flexes without the side panels attached

Overall Review: I have own over 10 computer cases, this by far is my favorite. I like my components to be easily accessible. I like the minimalist design. I highly recommend this case.

One defective stick of ram.

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C15D-16GVB
G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C15D-16GVB

Pros: Works like a charm after defective ram was replaced.

Cons: One stick of ram was defective. It took 14 days for replacement.

Overall Review: First time that I'd received a bad ram in 12 years. It was just inconvenient to have to wait 14 days for a replacement.
