Most Favorable Review

Has potential - Just practice!

StarTech.com Cat 6 RJ45 Modular Plug for Solid Wire - 50 Pack
StarTech.com Cat 6 RJ45 Modular Plug for Solid Wire - 50 Pack

Pros: I am giving this product 5 stars ONLY because no one else has and it has the POTENTIAL to be a great product. When assembled properly, these jacks work great and are actually almost as easy to assemble as my favorite pick, the EZ-RJ45 line of products. I am overall satisfied with this product and it has worked for me 100% of the time, even in the beginning, when I was "learning" how to properly assemble these.

Cons: A slow start getting the "hang of it". At first I hated this product and refused to use it! One day on a job, these were all I had and i was forced to use them. After a cable or two, I figured out what was necessary to get a consistent, reliable assembly.

Overall Review: Writing this review as I place my second order. I normally would buy EZ-RJ45, but these are much cheaper and almost as "EZ". My tip for use: Strip insul. 1/2"-3/4" from end, cut divider 1/8" from insul., untwist wires, flatten/order wires, cut wires evenly removing as little as possible, place guide on wires-direction matters!, push guide up against divider, cut wires evenly close to guide, give insulation a little squeeze on same plane as guide with pliers to eliminate snagging on cablelock when inserting cable into end. Hope this helps!

Logitech Alert 700i Indoor Add-on HD-quality Security Camera with Wide-Angle Lens (961-000330)

Pros: Video quality is VERY good. Setup on PC is easy. Fairly granular/concise and advanced control. Audio quality is ok and volume (gain possibly) is controllable. Video can be flipped/rotated to accomodate for unique mounting situations. Many mounting options/hardware included. Can be mounted to a window/other surfaces easily with included hardware (to face either way). Viewing from Droid X was simple, convenient and quality looked good.

Cons: Small lag when viewing from local network (1-3 Seconds), larger lag when viewing from Web/smartphone (2-6 seconds). I have set up 2 systems at 2 different locations and when setting up 1 or 2 cameras on the same circuit, I had good results. When installing 3 or more cameras, however, I have had several issues with the cameras either not being detected at all or dropping off from time to time. I plugged all the powerline network adapters into the same extention cord and ran long network cables to all the cameras to fix the issue but this defeats the whole purpose of powerline networking now, doesn't it?

Overall Review: VIEWING from web/smartphone is free, CONTROLLING from web/smartphone is $80. Powerline networking even just 1 camera is not possible for some electrical systems as some electrical systems will have unique characteristics which will prevent these devices from communicating properly.

Pros: Great quality and can make manual cabling a snap.

Cons: High cost.

Overall Review: My initial inclination is to rate this item with 4-stars, but I was hesitant to follow through as my main reason would be cost.

Pros: Excellent quality and accessibility for the price. Heavier grade steel than average cheapo cases. A pleasure to work with and I have worked with several.

Cons: No PSU.

Overall Review: Don't skimp on PSU quality and wattage.

Inexpensive yet effective

EnGenius ENH500 N300 Business-Class, Long Range 5GHz Wireless Bridge/Access Point

Pros: Bought many varying models of the engenius brand wireless products. Just like the other models, this one does not disappoint in basic use. I have many of these deployed outdoors (and in) and I have yet to replace one that worked out of the box. 1 DOA out of 20ish = not bad.

Cons: Some advanced configurations which work with other devices will not work with these, especially when mixing model types.

Overall Review: Use the same models for point to point, especially with bridges.
