Pretty Good Indeed

Canon ZR850 Silver 2.7"LCD 35X Optical Zoom Digital Camcorder
Canon ZR850 Silver 2.7"LCD 35X Optical Zoom Digital Camcorder

Pros: Very excellent video quality in all lighting. Video and Picture options on either the MiniDV or the SD Card. "Easy" button for best picture in any light.

Cons: Video upload is only though Firewire not USB. Hissing in the background from humming of video, not able to remove even on 12-channel audio.

Overall Review: Just little minor issues that doesn't change the overall awesomeness of this camera.

Most Critical Review

It's Alright

BYTECC Aluminum Notebook Cooler NC-500 (USB)

Pros: perfect size for a 17" laptop, two fans for extra circulation, rubber pads on the bottom and on top for laptop

Cons: power switch is extremely sensitive and finiky. Mine had to be in the perfect place or it wouldn't work.

Overall Review: look for a different cooler

Awesome!

TRENDnet Wireless-G IP Camera with 1 detachable antenna / MAX Resolution 640x480 (TV-IP110W)

Pros: Awesome! I got four of these for our church. The first two are on opposite side of the sanctuary, about 60'-75' from the wireless router and they work perfectly. The other two are in an office and the entrance of the church about 40'-50' from the router, they have 2 walls (with steel studs) to go through and they disconnect every now and then, but they come back on and keep recording

Cons: To get facial recognition you need the camera about 10' away, 15 max, any further and you only going to see the basic fuzzy shape of a person. When cameras disconnect from router you may have to go in and manually reset the time and date.

Overall Review: Motion Sensors are amazingly awesome! Connected to WEP, WPA, and WPA2 just fine no problems.

Pros: Awesome case, seems very sturdy

Cons: Took 3 computers and 2 hours to finally format the drive. it kept shutting off. it finally formatted, but i am not confident it will stick. everytime i tried to format it would either shut off or XP just couldn't complete the format.

The Remote Didn't Work

Standard Wire & Cable SVID410IR 4-to-1 Composite/S-Video & RCA Audio Switch
Standard Wire & Cable SVID410IR 4-to-1 Composite/S-Video & RCA Audio Switch

Pros: They transistion between all the inputs just fine

Cons: The remote didn't work, but i got a cheap universal remote and that worked just fine. when going between inputs it has a staticy transistion.

Overall Review: The remote does not come with batteries and you need two AAA
