This review is from: Zmodo Greet - Smart WiFi HD Video Doorbell
Pros: - Looks cool
Cons: - Wireless...but requires wires.
- Drops the wifi connection pretty much all the time.
- Pretty much completely and utterly useless.
Other Thoughts: Wow, this review took me about two months to complete because the WiFi doorbell requires hardwired power. So, if you are expecting to pop a doorbell on to your apartment and it's not already wired for a doorbell, well...have fun. A few trips to Lowes, a bunch of time rigging up a way to install this without altering my apartment and weeks later, viola! Nothing! I mean, it's really, really cool WHEN it works. I tested out the camera from inside my apartment with my tablet and it's pretty cool. However, it never worked once I did the initial test. Fedex would leave packages and the bell never let me know someone had been there. Friends would drop by and end up knocking because the bell wasn't working. I mean it drops WiFi connections all the time. That's pretty much what it does. As a doorbell? A massive failure. As a WiFi connection dropper? Well, it excels at that. I'm not sure there's a market for such a thing, but if there is the Greet has it cornered. (By the by, my router is exactly 12 feet from the door. It's not like I was asking this thing to pick up a signal from 1/2 mile away.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Small and light
- Comes with the keyboard and stylus
- Decent battery life
Cons: Windows 10 on a tablet.
- Slow. Compared to a comparable Android tablet things just take longer to open and work.
- Fussy touch interface. Sometimes Windows knows what you are doing, sometimes it has no idea.
- Fingerprint scanner. I could not get this to work. I have one on my phone that works easily. This one? Not so much.
Other Thoughts: Honestly, if this was running Android it would probably be a much better product. My Samsung S7 and my Samsung Pro tablet work much, much faster. Windows will occasionally open things like Facebook, Netflix, and Minecraft fairly quickly. Mostly, however, it takes quite a while for apps to open. A lot of the time I am waiting for MS Word to catch up to my typing. If I want to look something up quickly it takes forever for the log in screen to pop up once Windows has gone to sleep. Phone and tablet is press the button and open the browser in less than 5 seconds. Usually once you get things going they work fairly well, but I don't feel like it's worth it to buy an under-powered Windows tablet and wait for things. Spend the extra money to get a Surface or get a good Android tablet. I've spent a month with the Asus and it honestly just feels like a toy to me. I can't justify the price for performance. You can spend less and get an Android or spend a bit more and get a Windows 10 tablet that works faster.
For the screen size, the resolution is fine. Watching Netflix you can't tell it's not 1080p on a screen this size.
Pros: - Fantastic wi-fi coverage. I have actually been using a Linksys repeater up until I started testing this bad boy. My whole house now has coverage without the use of a repeater.
- 5Ghz is crazy fast with 4 devices accessing it simultaneously. I’ve never been able to download app and files on my phone and tablet as fast as I can now all while my daughter is streaming Disney shows on her tablet.
- Setup is smooth and easy. Plug it in, open a browser. Answer a few basic questions and you have a wireless network set up in a couple of minutes WITH the newest firmware having installed itself.
- Home NAS. Not only is the wireless network easy to set up, but setting up a home NAS is pretty much as easy as plugging a drive into the USB or eSATA ports.
- This thing is solid. It’s not like the old routers that felt like 3 ounces of plastic that could blow away in a slight breeze and would basically melt themselves in a few months. It does get warm, but not like my old D-Link that would burn me while I was trying to attach a new Ethernet cable.
Cons: - Large desktop footprint. This replaced a Netgear that I could stand on end and had a very small footprint. This is pretty much flat on the desk or nothing unless you want to wall mount it.
- You are definitely paying for the rich feature set. Do you research and make sure you can take advantage of it.
Other Thoughts: Linksys has really come a long way. I used to curse their name but recently I have tested quite a few Linksys products and they have done a complete 180 in terms of quality and ease of use. I would not hesitate to recommend their new stuff.READ FULL REVIEW
