Rosewill Unmanaged 1Gbps Switch (RC-410LX) Review

This has been the best switch I have owned so far, as well as being the main switch beside my Router. I have pushed probably 60TB of Internet traffic and backups to my sever to it over the years and its still working perfectly. I have had some smaller 5 port switches from other brands around the same price range already have dead ports and weird problems, but this one has held up. I do wish it was metal but the plastic keeps the costs down.

 

Update: 8/14/2017 Switch still works perfectly!

Speck CandyShell Protective Case Anti-Freeze Yellow iPhone 6/s Case

This is a Great case!, It fits snug, Nice colour (Guy here) Just something a little different to use than my clear case. Feels very durable and protective. I have not owned a Speck product since back when the Note 2 came out, which I also really loved. I got the Heritage Grey/Anti-Freeze Yellow Core colour. Its a great protective case and have always loved the Speck CandyShell products and glad I came back. See my only issue below.

Pros:
Slim protective case
Nice colour combo
Excellent drop protection
Works perfectly well with my Glass screen protector

Cons:
This case (Like my Note 2) one does show scratches easily, But honestly I’d rather it be the case than the phone itself. After about a day of use I do see small scratches even when I had carefully carried it today.

But this will be my main use case until something else may come out as so far this one is my favourite!

 

Amcrest HDSeries Outdoor 720P WiFi Wireless IP Security Bullet Camera

I’ve had some experience this past year with security cameras/CCTV due to helping my local gym with Networking along with there camera system (sort of like Amcrest DVR systems) And just last week purchased and installed one of the Amcrest 8 Channel DVR systems for a local Chinese Restaurant and there in love! and so I am over Amcrest cameras now.

Now about this camera, when first unboxing it I noticed how hefty and great build it was. I first plugged it up and used Ethernet for first setup, setup a static IP with my Router and went into the cameras management interface (TONS better than others out there) So many wonderful features and settings! (See Video of the tour) I first setup WiFi though this interface (This can also be done through the iPhone or Android app without having to first connect it via Ethernet like some have stated) I connected this to my WNDR3800 WiFi Access Point which is connected to my main Router a Netgear R7000. Connection went flawlessly, Camera will be hooked up on my front porch and WiFi signal going through several walls and it picks up perfectly! So to have it outside all you need is power and your good to go! I then went own to setup FTP settings to my personal home server to store recordings on it as well as using Amcrest Cloud, which is very easy to use and nice interface. And with the files that are sent from the camera to my home FTP server, I view them using Amcrest Smart Play program, and in which acts like a DVR for the files and they can be outputted to normal video files if needed.

I’ve included video samples in my video 🙂
