Defender Sentinel Wireless 4 CH 1TB DVR with 4 Wireless 520TVL Cameras
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Setup was easier than expected - obviously you need some knowledge on mounting and wiring if you're putting these outside and drilling holes in a building for power. Connection to the TV was straight forward and the cameras synced automatically, no need to hit the sync button on all 4 cameras. This will be the first New England winter they're going through, as I installed them last spring. All 4 have been outside and have survived the weather perfectly so far. Range is reasonable - placement of the receivers is important. Better signal increases quality. IR night vision works well enough for home security, don't expect to see down a street. The IR lights are visible at night, looks like a red ring on the cameras, probably good for a security system to make itself known.

Cons: One of the cameras fogged up briefly, but I think that may have been a result of morning condensation on the outside. I have not come across any issue so far - nothing to take any eggs away.

Other Thoughts: I have yet to dig through the recording features, I've only used the system for live feed. Everything has worked perfectly so far, so I expect if I need any of the other listed features (ie. recording, off-site viewing, etc., they'll be there and work as advertised.)

Overall solid system.

Link Depot HDMI-2-HDMI 6 ft. Black HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable M-M
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Does exactly what it's supposed to. Cable isn't too think or stiff - easy to bend or get it to where it needs to go. (no 90 degree bends here folks, that goes for pretty much any cable)

Cons: none

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: NO COIL WHINE on either of them
Low power
super quiet
great temps
They SHRED every game I throw at them @ 1440p
Fans turn on at lower temps than 60-70C despite other reviews
Backplates are wonderful
Metal shrouds, not plastic
Worked right out of the box with the most current drivers

Cons: Backplate doesn't mitigate card sag as much as would have liked, PSU wires work fine to hold them up if used properly.
White LEDs above the power sockets aren't super asthetic, and as far as I can tell, they don't have an option to turn off. Not a big deal as my tower is under my desk.
They don't come with an SLI bridge
...No multi-color LEDs? I'm just being picky at this point.

Other Thoughts: These cards are wonderful for the price if you can find them on sale. I have read multiple reviews about coil whine, took the plunge anyway and it payed off. It may just be the quality of your power supply.

I'm running:
Intel 4790k
MSI Gaming 5 Motherboard
8Gb Corsair Ripjaws
2x Asus Strix GTX 970's (More is better?)
OCZ 850W PSU Gold Certified
2560x1440 Qnix 27' IPS @ 110hz
1920x1080 Asus 24' TN @ 60hz
