4.0 out of 5 stars Good picture, 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm familiar with these type of cameras having had some of the cheap 640x480 ones for a while. It took me while to get on to the camera because I forgot the default non-standard port nunber. This one has HTTPS which makes for a more secure connection over the internet but the real joy is the image which is loads better than the 640x480 versions. No IR colour distortion and more pixels really makes a difference and it is a nice wide angle view without any barrel distortion, the cheap ones look really bad in comparison. The dual stream is handy for looking at the camera remotely at the price of having a vertically elongated picture. When you only have the standard 1Mb/sec UK upload speed, even using H264 compression 1280 x 760 is too much data to shift and It gets jerky

i have some minor niggles. I turned on the infrared during the day to try and light up some shadows and it stayed on even though I set it back to auto, The answer was to set it to auto at night and then it switches back to colour when day breaks. The SD card management is incomprehensible and doesn't seem to work but I don't care as I'm using a recorder. The patrol menu setup is also incomprehensible, maybe I should read the instructions, wherever they are. The rest of the menus are familiar with a fancier feel but at twice the price of the cheapie models I would say you get more than twice the quality of picture.

My brief experience with learning Arabic seems to be that the emphasis of most courses is on reading and writing, probably due to the large numbers who wish to read and learn the Qu'uran. This book is very good in that respect with pages for practicing the letters in all their forms. Even if you are looking to just learn some phrases for travel you will be exposed to Arabic writing so this will be a good way to get a grip on learning to read. Be aware that Arabic vowels are not letters, they are indicated by marks over/under the consonants and these are omitted in everyday writing so you will also need to learn whole words, this book is therefore very useful but only part of what you will need.

3.0 out of 5 stars Support and apps sadly lacking cannot use at multiple sites, 9 April 2014

I have a powerline network which is part of a remote server access system and it occasionally freezes up so you lose remote connection to some of the devices . To fix it you just unplug the main powerline plug and plug it back in which is OK unless you are not at the office, hence we bought this to bounce the power to the powerline plug - and it works, it remains to be seen whether it works long term, however the setup was not without trauma and I think Belkin could do better in terms of controlling the product and its support. The first thing I need to get off my chest is why is there no windows app for this product? There should be one - I don't care what you say. The next is the instructions, they are very sparse and it took me a while to realise that after you have downloaded the android app they want you to connect your phone to a wifi network created by the wemo itself when you plug it in, which makes sense as I couldn't work out how it could connect to the office wifi without the password. Once you have established a direct network with the wemo then you can change its settings, it detects the nearby home/office wifi and you enter the wifi password and also tell it to work remotely. So far so good. It found the device , my phone is connected to the network, I test it in a desk lamp and cool! It switches on and off, now I try the powerline and yes it works through the switch. Then I switch my phone to 4G and try again. Nothing and the blue LED lamp has gone off. To cut a long story short all I needed was some patience, there can sometime be quite a delay over the internet and the LED lamp is meant to go off. There is no such thing as a downloadable manual to tell you what is going on (at least I couldn't find one amongst all the dead support links) Update: bought another one for home and you can't control it from he same device - pathetic!

Despite being a lesser amp-hour value than the original it keeps the machine running for as long as the original and it even has the on-battery charge indicator as well

I've dropped my Nexus several times with no ill effects. A nice touch is a clear template to help you cut a picture/graphic to the right size and with the right holes to fit between the camera and the case and show though the clear panel

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Quality Control issues, 27 Mar 2014

The screw fittings on the short hose are too tight against the hose body so screwing them into the tap adapters rotates the whole hose and it takes man-strength to hang on to the hose body while you tighten the screw-up. The tap adapters are good quality and stretch enough to fit over my very old bath taps.

Hopefully this will shed some light on why my electricity bills are so high. It is not quite as warm as a tungsten bulb but is a decent yellow not the hideous blue cast of some LEDs. brightness is good too, comparable to a 60 watt bulb and unlike fluorescent is good for reading

The original lead had suffered from straining due to its length being determined by a bean-counter and the camera kept resetting. I wish I could charge it to the bean-counter. Nice solid and positive click and location at both ends

I have had a NAS with two each of these running for 6 months 2/3 full with a heavy churn of data and it reports them as 0 defects or bad sectors.
