This review is from: TOSHIBA IK-WB16A RJ45 Network Camera
Cons: As a certified Video Pro, I can assure you this camera is OLD technology. It may look like a good possibility but its not. the 2MP claim is deceptive, it's a 4:3 output. Color detection in even a minor light is lost, and it flips to B/W. Zoom was extremely poor and either the unit I got was bad or... The firmware is from 2010. Toshiba basically mass produced this and has so much left over they are still around.
There are too many 1080p 2MP cameras out there that are newer. Get one which declares ONVIF 2.04 or ONVIF S compatibility if you want to make it work with your Sec. VMS.
This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH100U3 10-Port USB 3.0 Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter
Pros: Basic features work as described by the product page. No hidden troubles to worry bout (such as odd drivers etc).
Plug and play on my 3.0 port to drive this, with full speeds to my 3.0 devices. No Power issues to speak of, although I don't use 'charger' features of a 3.0 port in my setup.
Cons: Large device, 10 ports is overkill for many people - other units exists with less ports that are cheaper overall.
Other Thoughts: Vantec is a good name in my book for products of this type. I've used their HD cases for external 2.0 USB and ESAtA without problems. I like them and will keep buying.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Basic functionality is fine for splitting a single ethernet to multiple workstations under desk etc. The price is excellent and the quality of the unit look is great - much better than the old metal netgear 4-5 port hubs.
Cons: One weakness is no leds to indicate giga vs fast ether speeds. It would be nice to have the amber/green light to reflect speed of what is connected.READ FULL REVIEW
