Pros: Resolution and contrast of these cameras are way better than other surveillance cameras I've used. Installation is simplified by the fact these cameras are Power over Ethernet (PoE) so they get their power directly from the DVR over the 100' cat5E cables included. The cables include a nifty weatherproof connector for the cable at the camera end; discard the screw-on cover in the camera box, the one you use is already on the cable.
I have not had a chance to check out all the features of the DVR software, but features I have looked for have been easy to find and use.
My use of Q-See support was easy and resulted in a quick fix for the problem I had.
Cons: None that I can think of. I plan to grab a 4K TV on sale to see if I can better read license plates of cars - I've had occasion to call police for incidents in my parking lot and have been told if they cannot get a plate number, the video is of no use to them. As it is, using an old LED monitor, even with these cameras, ID is iffy when the plate is oblique to the camera.
Other Thoughts: I only got around to installing cameras this week, so these are my initial impressions. I installed a 3TB Seagate surveillance HD, and had to format the drive in the DVR to get it to recognize the drive. When you open the case, the "motherboard" appears no larger than a modest video card, but hey, it seems to get the job done.
Installed the Q-See QTView app for Android from the PlayStore, but after playing with it a short while, could only get an error message about network connectivity. So I initiated a web chat with Q-See support, and hint, check the box in the DVR setup where it asks "NAT?". Fixed.
I have not yet installed the PC viewing software. I will update this review after I have used it longer.
This review is from: Esky Digital Pocket Jewelry Scale 100 x 0.01g, Black
Pros: In my initial testing using new US coinage as reference weights, this appears to be accurate to plus or minus .02 grams. I create recipes that need to be scaleable to food service quantities, and needed a convenient way to accurately weigh spices and seasoning in the initial small scale prototypes. This seems well suited to my need.
Caught this on sale, so price was a small fraction of what I may have paid for something similar.
Cons: At the price, none.
Other Thoughts: 100g capacity by .01 gram, but as noted above, accuracy is somewhat less.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RLFL-14001 Cree XPG-R5 LED Search Flashlight (Zoom) Max 450 lumen
Pros: This flashlight features very strong construction of solid aluminum, a focusing lens with an easy push-pull operation using your thumb, and produces an amazing amount of light from a single AA battery, which I prefer to the previous models that require 3 AAA batteries in a fiddly holder. Water resistant.
Cons: None that I have noted. In my opinion, Rosewill has just improved upon an already good flashlight.
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these for a couple of elderly friends who admired a prior model of Rosewill flashlight of machined aluminum that I have bought (and still have). I liked the pictures so ordered a third for myself. This one is lighter weight while still solid, easier to focus, and uses a better choice in battery, thus has become my new favorite.READ FULL REVIEW
