TRENDnet TV-IP310PI (v1.0R) 10/100 Mbps PoE Rort Outdoor 3 MP HD Bullet Day/Night IP Camera

3 out of 5 eggs Great hardware, awful software 08/31/2015

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP310PI (v1.0R) 10/100 Mbps PoE Rort Outdoor 3 MP HD Bullet Day/Night IP Camera

Pros: Excellent hardware. Good image quality for the price.

Cons: Where to start?
1. password length is arbitrarily short - no idea what it is but it's less than 20 characters (that i use on my other two Trendnet network cameras) and at least 8 which is what i got to work.
To make this worse, the setup UI provides NO FEEDBACK when your password is too long. It just happily truncates it and then when you go to connect to the device it fails because your password doesn't match. It took me 2 hours to figure out why I was seeing these failures.
2. The write-to-network-share is painful to setup. Trial and error required and because there is no TEST button, you have to just try it and hope for the best. Very painful for NO reason.
3. Requires some web-resident control adapter. HTML5 supports video kids. Time to start using it.
I could not get this to work in Windows 10 with either Chrome or Edge, but did manage to get it to work with Firefox. Time to retire the plugins and move on.

Other Thoughts: Really wish Trendnet would invest as much into its software as it does into its hardware. The price/performance ratio is excellent with these cameras assuming you can set it up and actually find a browser that can connect.

StarTech USBBT1EDR4 USB 2.0 Mini Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter - Class 1 EDR Wireless Dongle (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great range.
Works fine with my Microsoft Presenter mouse, and a Logitech bluetooth keyboard.

Cons: Getting BAD_POOL_CALLER bluescreens with Win8.1.
Ran driver verifier, shared the crash dump with MSFT and they confirmed it's the bluetooth driver:

Csr Bluetooth Port driver (Reference: km:0xc4_62_vrf_leaked_pool_image_csrbtport.sys).

Seems more stable after I moved it to a USB 2.0 port. Not sure if that will fix it or not.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully they'll come out with a fix for this.

AZIO KB335 Backlit Bluetooth 3.0 Slim Keyboard for Tablets

2 out of 5 eggs Poorly placed keys 08/26/2014

This review is from: AZIO KB335 Backlit Bluetooth 3.0 Slim Keyboard for Tablets

Pros: Lights up for use in poor lighting.
Eventually connected to Bluetooth on my PC.
Built-in battery is a good idea.

Cons: Keys are not correctly spaced for touch-typing.
Anyone who knows how to type will find this keyboard infuriating as they hit the wrong key when searching for SHIFT or BACKSPACE.

Other Thoughts: Really wanted this to work. USB-dongle on my MSFT keyboard just didn't have the range I wanted.
Sadly, the designers seem more interested in spacing the keys in a pattern that looks nice rather than placing them where people expect them to be and can reach them easily and reliably without looking.
