Seagate SkyHawk 2TB Surveillance Hard Drive 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - 2TB offers lots of storage space for 24/7 security camera recording. Current estimates are at ~30 days of non-stop recording on a 4-camera system (960p resolution).
- Very quiet drive. This is one of the quietest drives I've ever used - and I have built many computers over the past 20 years. I have the drive installed in my security camera wireless router box in my bedroom. The box is about three feet from the bed, and I can't hear it at all at night. I was worried about the bedroom placement but it worked out great.
- Drive speed seems fine for video recording.
- This drive would work well in many other use-cases (general data drive in a PC or Mac, or NAS), so it doesn't have to solely be used with security camera systems.

Cons: - None so far.

Other Thoughts: - Very happy with this drive! Hopefully it will last a long time in my home security camera setup.

CyberPower 6 Feet 10 Outlets 3750 Joules Home/Office Surge Protector with 2 USB (2.1A Shared) Charging Ports
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - Build quality feels pretty good. It's made of plastic but feels pretty hefty.
- I like how some of the outlet placements are closer together (for smaller plugs) and some are farther apart (for bulkier AC adapters).
- The outlets themselves power devices well and work reliably.
- Cord is nice and long at 6 feet.

Cons: - As many other reviewers have pointed out, the two USB charging ports only supply 1A of power. As a result, they are basically useless. I couldn't charge my Fire phone, my iPad Mini 2, or my PS4 controllers using these ports. Major bummer.
- Not a huge deal, but the "Cyber Power" branding on the unit is a cheap black sticker attached crooked to the top of the unit.

Other Thoughts: - Seems like a good basic power supply if you can get it on sale.

  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - PSU was easy to install

- PSU is fairly quiet and has been stable in my system.

Cons: - None so far!
