5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic performance., 12 Jun. 2015

Used this for many months now in a 2011 Macbook Pro, and bought one subsequently for an older Macbook. Both have been fantastic performance and no issues so far.

Nice performance. Great scroll wheel - much better than the couch mouse version!

Nice fitting jacket (slim fit), stylish, doesn't look like you've just walked off a mountain! Great waterproof performance (so far in first few weeks), good quality, great price. Ideal.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but a bit simple. Daytime image is pretty good., 12 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Setup is relatively easy and quick. Angle is nice and wide. Generally captures motion well and uploads to their free hosting service. If there is a lot of motion triggering and uploading, then the internal buffer fills up and it stops recording for a while until there is room to store the recordings again ... this is a little poor. Would also be better to be able to specify what upload bandwidth to use so each user could configure based on needs and infrastructure installed. Recordings take about 2-4min to upload for the first, and much longer delays when there are several to upload (at least 30min if several triggers close together!). Motion detection can be set by schedule, but not by IFTTT location tracking etc - annoying if your schedules change lots, and you just want it active when everyone is out of the home. Motion alerting to iPhone is OK and responsive (only few seconds delay). Microphone is pretty poor and has muffled sound. There is a design flaw with the infra-red LEDs - they reflect off the lens cover back into the camera lens so you get white spots on the image - can't believe it was not resolved before launch! It's just about usable in the dark despite this.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK camera - a bit basic., 12 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Setup is relatively easy and quick. Angle is not quite as wide as I'd have liked (the indoor camera has a wider angle). Generally captures motion well and uploads to their free hosting service, however have had some occasions where it has not triggered (and it's sensitive enough to pick up cats walking around) - e.g. seen the postman leaving our shared drive, but not arriving! Also if there is a lot of motion triggering and uploading, then the internal buffer fills up and it stops recording for a while until there is room to store the recordings again ... this is a little poor. Would also be better to be able to specify what upload bandwidth to use so each user could configure based on needs and infrastructure installed. Recordings take about 2-4min to upload for the first, and much longer delays when there are several to upload (at least 30min if several triggers close together!). Motion detection can be set by schedule, but not by IFTTT location tracking etc. Motion alerting to iPhone is OK and responsive (only few seconds delay).

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok product. Should be more refined., 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to slot drive in and close, data transfer rates good. Metal case is robust. For this price though I expected a more refined case - it's a little rough around the edges, sharp in places, and the 2 hinge screws on both top and bottom protrude slightly which could cause scratching to any surface it's placed on.

Update: 27/11/2013: Anker sent me a replacement caddy that was a little improved. It works well but one of the screws still protrudes. Personally I think the case could be more refined still.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality - don't waste your money, 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought 2 of these cables for charging. One stopped working completely after about 2 weeks (tried on PC, Mac, Apple original plug, Anker battery - none worked), and the other came apart when unplugging from a charging plug with very little force after a month.
