Pros: High quality video stream. Automatic infrared. Multiple mount options. Two-way audio available. MicroSD card slot. Access on the local network or internet via app. Motion detection available. Alexa integration. Simple firmware updates. Supports android and IOS devices. Setup was easy and interesting.
Cons: Device app only, no PC support. Unable to customize a location in which to save the camera’s video. Sending audio to camera, even on my local network, was choppy and mostly unintelligible; communication was difficult.
Other Thoughts: I’ll say that if you don’t have a PC at your location or a desire to customize you storage, this camera is awesome, works well, and you should probably get it. Image quality is good at 720p. Audio works, but in my experience basically just the listening portion. Stores video via a paid cloud storage (w/ 30-day free trial), a MicroSD expansion slot, or an optional EZVIZ vault system.
On the downside, and my biggest gripe is that it only works with the device app at this point. Scanned and saw TCP ports 554, 8000, 8200, and 9010, all of which were inaccessible via web browser. There is no app available in the windows store either. That isn’t the only area which precludes this camera. There is no option to store video on a network device of choice. You either have them on the camera, in the manufacture’s paid cloud service, or in EZVIZ’s optional vault. There is no option to upload them to your chosen server. If the camera is stolen and you’re not using the paid service or vault, all of your evidence is gone. I already have lots of network storage available and would prefer to use that as opposed to adding another network storage location.
My conclusion is that this would be a good solution for those without a need/desire to view their cam on a PC and don’t want to bother with their own storage solution (probably most people). People wanting to view the cam on a PC will be left disappointed by its lack of PC compatibly, and personally it’s a big show stopper being unable to upload to a custom location.
Pros: This SP card is a Class-10/UHS-1 microSDXC card with a flashy front side and whole lot of storage space. Read/write speeds are very fast. Comes with SD adapter. And although I’ve only had it for two weeks thus far, it has handled all the reads/writes I’ve thrown at it.
Cons: I hate not having one real con to list, but this card literally performed flawlessly during its two weeks of testing. Not one read/write issue during use. Initial loading of over 100GB data onto this card took over a day. Didn’t exactly reach the advertised on package 75Mbps data transfer. Both of the latter points are more likely caused by my taxed workstation.
Other Thoughts: I’ve put this card through the paces. Loaded it up with my entire music collection and as many movies as I could fit while leaving about 16GB for photos and etc. Photos were quick to be written during testing, and I’ve yet to dump them with all the space this card affords. Tested it with my phone during which the card performed without issue in outdoor Midwestern high humidity and temperatures. Also had it in wet conditions while kayaking (phone is IP68 certified, so that might’ve helped). Placed it in my raspberryPi Media Center and it read and played high bitrate (>=320kbps) audio tracks and HD movies (720p or 1080p MP4s) without issue. I heard this card chuckle at my dSLR camera. Offers rescue software online, but since I had no trouble, I didn’t have an opportunity to test said software. Although I think based off the silicon-power website the software is now called recuva.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK RE355 AC1200 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
Pros: Simplest and most direct wireless extension I’ve ever experienced. Setup was a breeze and worked the first time through. Has provided stable operation throughout its use so far. Dual band goodness. Gigabit Ethernet port available. Aesthetically pleasing with informative yet subdued blue lights. Powerful enough retractable/foldable antennas completely filled the weak wireless spots in my home.
Cons: This extender does have a big footprint, but you will be able to use your other outlet if you’re smart about it. No outlet pass-through. Takes a bit to boot. Additional configuration can be a bit trickier than initial setup as you have to make sure you are on the extender’s network.
Other Thoughts: TheTP-Link RE355 serves its purpose well. It indicates the connection status via the indicator ring light and has separate LEDs to confirm 2.4 and 5Ghz connectivity. The extender has indicator LEDs that aren’t very bright, and while this does not affect the actual operation of the extender, it is a huge plus in my book. While you can setup the extender with a separate SSID, why would you if you’re extending your existing wireless network? Aside, I found it easiest to simply reset the router to default and set it up again when configuring for separate SSIDs. I also found it painful to use it with a separate SSID as it is a truly seamless experience when the SSID is cloned. The TP-link tether app is available for device based setup/configuration. WPS is available, if you and your router are into that sort of thing.READ FULL REVIEW
