    Love your patch panels...

    Pros:
    Instantly use UTP cables and patch panels. Nice warm feeling as you just click your cable into place without having to fart about with a screw driver. Looks nice and professional.
    Cons:
    None really... errm, housing is a strange shape really.

    Cheaper than a single one.

    Pros:
    Cheap - for the same price I would only get 1 length. It *does* include 5 lengths of 3m, so 15m metres overall...
    Cons:
    I don't like how they were packaged and tapped up, but that isn't a product fault.

    Best on this site

    posted by drsquirrel on 12/06/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Has the most IR LEDs on this site, and is probably the best "home" setup camera you will get. Solid built body. IR comes on nice and gradually. Waterproof... I cannot see anything to show otherwise.
    Cons:
    In bright sunlight the colours are washed out a bit, this is kind of expected for an IR camera because of the filter (but still...

    Works as you would expect

    posted by drsquirrel on 12/06/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Same items from "professional stores" will charge you much more, and this is perfectly adequate for what we need. Can use cheap or readily accessible UTP/CAT5/CAT6 etc cable, don't think about doing this over any lengths without a BALUN. The wire ...
    Cons:
    Box feels empty and I guess they could have made it smaller (it isn't just an empty box). Screw terminals are poor, make sure y...

    Nice and heavy.

    posted by drsquirrel on 12/06/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Has a real variable output with the light sensor, no jumping ON or OFF only. Spot is nice and bright. Housing is really heavy and has a nice quality feeling.
    Cons:
    Spot is too bright for anything close up, and too tight for anything far away, would only be good for lighting bad corners. The...

    Nice price, although battery capacity is low

    posted by drsquirrel on 12/06/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The build quality is okay, and the cable sits nice into the controller. Battery has no fit issues either.
    Cons:
    Battery life is okay-ish for a cheap set, but I wouldn't be happy if this was off the shelf at your local console shop. The mai...
