This review is from: D-Link DCS-930L Cloud Wireless IP Camera, 640x480 Resolution, mydlink enabled
Pros: Earlier this year I learned that one of the maintenance people for my apartment building had taken a tour of my place without my consent, thanks to the lady across the hall bringing it to my attention. The maintenance guy was fired. However, my landlord still gives master keys to all of his staff which gave me reason to buy myself a network camera.
The camera works wonderfully. Framerate is smooth, the picture quality is good enough for what I need it to do and the added ability to access it from any place with an open network (I have an iPod Touch) is an added bonus. I schedule my camera's motion detection to activate during my regular work hours.
It was very easy to set up, as well. I've purchased some real stinkers when it comes to network cameras, and this one has had to be the easiest one to set up.
Cons: The only downside I see to the camera is that there is no feature that allows it to record video. If it detects motion, it can send a series of screenshots to your e-mail account - which is great, and I use this. But given that the camera has audio capabilities, I would have loved the extra option to record video and audio.
Other Thoughts: A fantastic purchase for the price. Very happy with the product, plan on buying a second camera for the other half of my apartment soon.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Collector's Edition PC Game Edition PC Game BLIZZARD
Pros: It will probably work when I get it.
Cons: The information provided at the pre-order screen said NewEgg would ship the game when they received it. They didn't give a date as to when that was estimated to be, so I assumed it would be a good enough time prior to launch for me to receive the game day of.
Har har. NewEgg got the game barely in time, shipped it on the 6th and it's been sitting in Ohio since yesterday morning. I'm in Wisconsin. I could have ordered this through Amzon for the same price and gotten it on the 7th, whereas I'm looking at getting it two or three days after it released.
Other Thoughts: Won't be pre-ordering games from NewEgg. Going to stick to parts.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto IV PC Game
Pros: If you have a computer that will run it, this game is beautiful. Infinite draw distance, no load screens, and they physics for each vehicle is as accurate as ever. Forget the generic first-person shooters. This is the first time since Midtown Madness that the PC has gotten a fully multiplayer, free-roaming derby-style driving game and its worth every nickel.
Cons: The only con I can think of is that NewEgg currently doesn't show the system requirements for this game, and they are very high requirements. This game will *NOT* run on single-core processors. It'll eat those chipsets like Doritos.
Other Thoughts: Unless you're running a very nice quad-core chipset, don't expect to run this on 100% maxed settings. You can if you have a good dual core system, but you'll be sacrificing FPS in a high-speed game.
Also, while this runs via Steam, BUY THE HARD COPY. Good Gosh, you might want to start the download now, but I garauntee you will be waiting at least two days for that download to finish, regardless if you have cable. Steam's backed up worse than a septic tank at a Chili Festival right now, so if you're just now considering buying this, either buy it here (nice little discount) or grab it at Wal-Mart/Target/Best Buy.
