EZVIZ Mini O 720p HD Wi-Fi Home Video Monitoring Security Camera, Built-in Speaker and Mic, Works with Alexa using IFTTT
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: The camera is compact in size. The base is quite stable (and is also magnetic).

Clear 720p resolution. The camera also supports two lower resolution modes. Wide (111 degree) depth of view.

The video quality is quite good (clearer than many other cameras I've used). The camera also supports night vision.

2-way audio. Many other cameras only offer 1-way audio. The audio quality is also quite good.

Simple to use with an Android App installed on your cell phone.

A standard USB charger/adapter is provided. Extra long (9.5 foot) USB cable provided.

The camera includes a MicroSD Slot for local recording. A MicroSD Card is not included.

Cons: Unlike many other cameras, you can NOT just log into the camera's GUI by pointing your web browser to the camera's IP address.

A browser plug-in is required to access the camera with your PC. You cannot use Chrome, only Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Setup was pretty simple using the Android App. I did have some trouble when scanning of the QR code on the bottom of the camera and setting up a password.

Other Thoughts: The camera works well when accessed via the EZVIZ App on your cell phone, however, the lack of simple PC access is a "deal breaker" for me. Therefore, I do not recommend this device.

Linksys CM3016 16x4 686 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Good stability and performance (but no GUI) 01/06/2017

This review is from: Linksys CM3016 16x4 686 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem

Pros: Setup was simple: [a] Screw your cable companies (ISP's) Coax cable into the Modem, [b] Plug an Ethernet cable into the Modem, and your Router's Ethernet port, [c] Plug the A/C adapter into the Modem and a wall outlet, and wait for the Modem to boot up. At this point you should be able to access your ISP's "Walled Garden" web page. Enter the Modem's MAC address into the web page, and your ISP should soon activate the Modem on your account.

The Modem has maintain a stable connection with my ISP (Comcast). My ISP Upstream signal level is pretty poor (e.g. ~50 dBmV) which has caused instability is some Modems from time to time.

Good Modem Speed (I get about 120 Mbps Download and 6.3 Mbps Upload). DOCSIS 3.0 (anything less is becoming obsolete).

All Ethernet ports are Gigabit.

The Modem is rather large, but sits on end so it doesn't require much table space.

Cons:
Once the modem is activated with your ISP, there is no way to access the Modem's GUI Status web pages. With many other Modems, you can direct your web browser to the Modem's IP address (e.g. 192.168.100.1, etc.) and view the Modem's GUI. Not the case with the CM3016.

The Modem takes awhile to Boot up. When you power up the CM3016 it just sits there for a few minutes with nothing but the Power status LED on. After a few minutes the Modem illuminates (in sequence) the Upstream, Downstream, Internet, and Router status LEDs. The Upstream and Downstream status LED first turn Green, then later turn Blue (indicating "Channel Binding" has been successful with your ISP).

Other Thoughts: My greatest disappointment is the inability to view the Modem's Status GUI. If this is not an issue for you, I recommend this Modem (for it's Speed and Stability).

Silicon Power 32GB Elite microSDHC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 85MB/s (SP032GBSTHBU1V20NE)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: 1. Clean packaging. The micro SD card and SD card adapter are packaged in a clear plastic "envelope" encased in cardboard. Easy to open. Large enough to keep you from loosing the card or adapter. Small enough to not use unnecessary space.

2. I plugged the card into a USB 2.0 adapter. Using a Windows 8.0 PC, I created and deleted some Folders and drag-and-drop a few large (4.0 GB) files without any issues.

I experienced the following Read/Write performance:
PC Write Speed: 13.8 - 14.6 MB/sec (sustained for 4.0 GB files).
PC Read Speed: 17.9 - 18.7 MB/sec (sustained for 4.0 GB files).

3. I then Formatted the card on the PC, and installed the card into a Samsung Galaxy S7 cell phone for additional testing.

4. Lifetime warranty.

5. Comes in a range for sizes from 16 GB to 128 GB. My card is the 32 GB which is the same capacity as the internal Flash storage in my Samsung Galaxy S7 cell phone.

Cons: 1. Not the fastest SD card around (especially on my Sequential Read test).

2. At my tested Write speed, it would take 9142 seconds (i.e. 152 minutes or 2.5 hours) to fill an entire 128 GB card. 2285 seconds (i.e. 38 minutes) for my 32 GB card.

Other Thoughts: The card comes pre-formatted as FAT32 with a 32KB Cluster size. Windows 8.0 displays the capacity of the card as 28.9 GB. My Samsung Galaxy S7 displays the capacity of the card as 28.96 GB.

I'll be leaving this in my cell phone for further testing. Long term Reliability is the key when it come to any Flash based memory device.

If you are looking for a micro SD card I recommend this product. Take care to purchase the appropriate capacity for your needs.
