TRENDnet TV-IP612WN 704 x 576 MAX Resolution RJ45 ProView Wireless N Pan/Tilt/Zoom Internet Camera
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Excellent resolution - Great zoom. DOES work in low light mode. PTZ speed is adjustable and quite fast. Not sure what the previous reviewer was saying in terms of the pan-tilt-zoom speed, but it is, or can be quite fast if adjusted. I bought the (2) that I own when they were close to $800. $400 is quite expensive too, but this is a quality unit. Mine have been running non-stop for more than 2-years.

Cons: Larger than many other units.
Very expensive

WD My Cloud EX4 16TB: 4-Bay Personal Cloud Storage WDBWWD0160KBK-NESN
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 16 TB of network storage in a Raid 5 configuration for under $1200.

Cons: Device constantly becomes unresponsive and CPU runs at 100% with few clues as to why. Lousy user interface - Advanced configuration options are not accessible short of SSH. Could not delete some folders/files w/o SSH in to the device and working through the CLI. CPU regularly spikes to 100% causing the device to become inaccessible. Plenty of "service-bloat" with few options available to turn off poorly behaved and/or unnecessary services. If you load media files onto this device, be prepared to wait for DAYS for the device to finish indexing the files and creating thumbnails. Hope you weren't planning to use it anytime soon. Oh- Wondering what is going on? GUI is unresponsive. -No clue. Device must be rebooted constantly. I still do not trust it as a safe repository of my critical data.

Other Thoughts: I'd like to see a statement from WD acknowledging the defects of this device and committing to corrections or refunds for all end users. For the record, there is plenty of evidence from other users that the problems I've outlined here are common. Stay away!

Ceton Echo – Windows Media Center Extender Watch Live & Recorded TV/HDTV Access Personal Media Libraries on Any TV on Home Network, HDMI Interface, Remote Included
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small. Good idea.

Cons: -Didn't work out of the box. -Was never able to get my MPC to see this device. Device got hung on the recovering screen and never completed the process. I was unable to appy new firmware. The device itself became very warm to the touch during this process.

Other Thoughts: I have been waiting for Microsoft to dedicate the necessary focus to Media Center and have been hoping for a revival in their investments there. Media Center has lacked any variety at all in terms of extenders. XBOX 360 was it. To a large extent, for years, premium cable viewers could only watch clear QAM channels using Windows Media Center until products like Ceton's InfiniTV showed up on the market. am a fan of the InfiniTV product and was looking for a small form factor extender for Windows Media Center. I am hoping my poor experiences here were due to fact it is an early release model and that future models may prove to be more reliable. Dissappointingly I was forced to return the defective Ceton Echo device and for about $20 more was able to purchase an XBOX 360 which in addition to working flawlessly out of the box, also included gaming features. Ceton, I "love" you guys and am looking forward to new Windows MPC based devices from you. However, the Echo release was premature and if I were running your show, I'd consider it a failure. You need to work out the quality issues before shipping such a large number of devices. Better to be right and late than wrong and on time. Oh yes...Work on the price-point. To truly be competitive in this space, you need this device to be $100 or less.
