TOSHIBA IK-WB16A RJ45 Network Camera
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs keep looking, not good camera 01/26/2013

This review is from: TOSHIBA IK-WB16A RJ45 Network Camera

Pros: Takes high resolution still pictures and video. The pan and tilt does work well. Ceiling mount was easy enough if not limited in design.

Cons: Very confusing and buggy firmware last updated in late 2010. Internet Explorer with an activex plug-in is really the only way to use the camera. But even then many menu and dropdown features aren't displayed correctly on IE9 or IE10. Was unable to edit or delete certain media and server settings once set. Motion detection which was the main feature wanted was very poor, problematic, and unpredictable as to what would cause a trigger. Image color very off and overall image had a distorted fisheye look. Looking for low-light or auto iris auto-shutter speed camera? Not this camera, once the sun goes down the image is totally black. Overall the UI was very confusing, documentation not much better, when I was able to trigger an event, this was sent as an email: "There is an event been triggered, please note"

Other Thoughts: I've owned an IK-WB11A purchased in 2004. Was hoping Toshiba had made improvements on a good but showing its age design. Nope, Toshiba basically broke, ruined, or eliminated certain key features. Like being able to define an irregular shaped motion detection field, having a clean resizeable live monitoring window, give good low light images, and even though Java is sometimes a pain and may have security flaws, it does greatly increase browser and platform use.

SAPPHIRE Ultimate  Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready  Video Card (100326UL)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs doesn't work with PowerDVD playing Blu-ray 01/05/2013

This review is from: SAPPHIRE Ultimate Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (100326UL)

Pros: It's silent, not a monster of a card so fits nice in cramped cases, like the full size HDMI output, doesn't require a PCI-E power cord. Drivers seems well polished and easy to find.

Cons: Finally got around to using the card in a HTPC configuration. CyberLink PowerDVD refuses to play Blu-ray movies with this card saying the graphics driver and hardware is incompatible or just not qualified. I even ran the CyberLink Blu-ray advisor where it returned the same results. DVDs will play but not Blu-ray. This card will not play Blu-ray files

Other Thoughts: I've used AMD graphics chipsets to play Blu-ray, the last one being a 4670. But this 6670 card just doesn't work playing Blu-ray with PowerDVD. Exhausted all options, pulled the card, popped in an nvidia-based card and all worked well. If your goal is to have a silent fanless card in your HTPC playing Blu-rays with PowerDVD, the HD 6670 is not the one to buy. OTOH, if you want a silent card in your desktop machine it's a perfect choice.

Intel Core i3-2130 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 3.4 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623I32130 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Fast processor, noisy HSF, adequate video performance 01/05/2013

This review is from: Intel Core i3-2130 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 3.4 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623I32130 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000

Pros: It does what it's supposed to do. Was the fastest i3 processor available.

Cons: Heatsink fan not the quietest. Might be shopping for something aftermarket very soon. Graphics performance is rather low but not a surprise. Windows Experience Index is 4.5.

Other Thoughts: Overall happy with my choice of this processor.
