Hikvision 1080p Turbo HD EXIR Turret Camera with 2.8 mm Lens
Hikvision 1080p Turbo HD EXIR Turret Camera with 2.8 mm Lens
Price: £52.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Feels Cheap, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you don't want to install Ethernet cables and reuse existing coax cable then turbohd work quite well and the picture is certainly an improvement over D1 and 960H systems.
However I would spend the little extra and go with an IP Ethernet system for a few reasons.
TurboHD isn't widely available compared to IP cameras
The exposure is not automatic unlike the IP range. Set it to 1/50 on an IP cam and that's the lowest it will go but still go higher is daylight. The turbohd camera is auto or fixed. I don't want my cameras going lower than 1/50 to prevent motion blur. 1/50 in daylight is massively over exposed. Lower than 1/50 causes motion blur.
Adjusting the settings on the turbohd range using the UTC (up the coax) function is slow and tiresome using on screen menus within menus. The IP range is via your webbrower and is all there to see and adjust using sliders.
Finally IP is not limited to 2mp resolution. I'm using Hikvision 4MP IP cams now. SO glad I did.
Did I mention it's a plastic body and feels cheap?

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can't complain.
Good full cooper cable that's shielded at this price is a no brainer.
Used it to replace the supplied cable on an old 960H CCTV and a Hikvision TurboHD system and the picture quality improved no end.
Less ghosting on the TurboHD and removed the banding on the 960H.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive, 19 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm going to review this as if i'd paid for it (as I always do)
It is actually a nicely built little device. Feels solid.
The rubberized cover gives it durability and the controls are easy to see and access.
I was impressed by the ease of connection to my phone and the fact the device speaks to you to let you know what it is doing - "powering on" "powering off" "paired" etc. Very good.
Despite this though the sound quality is a little distorted - Anything past half volume.
I expect it is due to the small size so don't expect loud volumes.
Sat in the garden and used a background sound it's fine.
Indoors next to the bath it's also okay.
However for price I would expect better considering similar devices for much less are available and the overall package doesn't warrant the extra cost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easily removed, 15 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Sturdy hooks that hold reasonably well and can be removed without leaving a residue.
Ideal for keys etc. Not strong enough for coats though (maybe a light jacket would be okay)

4.0 out of 5 stars Flat stacking, 15 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Sturdy little stapler that staples without the usual bumps at the back so muliple stapled documents sit flatter and stack better.
Very useful

4.0 out of 5 stars Its not masking tape, 15 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great tape. Peels off easily but when on stops paint creep underneath so maintains a crisp edge.
Expensive but saves so much time ceaning up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rubber seals, 9 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well here's an alternate use for this....
Tradionally I've used washing up liquid when inserting pipes together to lubricate the rubber seals but it goes sticky quite quickly.
This has silcone which slides better and doesn't go sticky quickly allowing adjustment without ripping the seals.
Just need to remove the label when in the toolbox!
As for its advertised use.....is silicone safe used internally.
