Pros: VERY small{you can mount this just about anywhere!} Low heat, and pretty powerful too {decent specs} i run a custom flavor of windows xp on these with a copy of Blue Iris I.P. CAMERA monitoring software.{it comes with a disk with all the windows drivers on it too} ive been using these ever since they came out as a recorder and monitor station for I.P. cameras. {there easy to hide anywhere and they hold up really well} works great with Rosewill and Foscam I.P. Cameras.

Cons: none really {well,the version of linux that comes on it is absolute garbage=),but i dont think anybody actually uses it anyway-they usually put ubuntu or pclos on it}

Overall Review: great for hooking up to your big flatscreen tv for netflix too. i use these for ip camera setups all the time, once i even mounted one in a car for a customer with a usb GPS antena and a 8" touch screen in his dash, and even build a standup "M.A.M.E. arcade machine" with this as its core cpu. the posibilities for one of these little pc's is endless! great for "trick" setups. ps. i didnt have any videos to upload of instals ive done,but i have lost of piks {but i couldnt figure out how to upload those=( maybe next time=)

Pros: dont pay for the 1day shipping {4days later,still havnt recieved ANYTHING!} I doubt i will ever get my order at all! il give it another week,then im reporting it as FRAUD to my credit card company!

Cons: everything! never recieved ANY PRODUCT AT ALL! total scam!

Overall Review: never buy from this company,unless you like paying for things that you may never recieve!

best for I.P. cams!

Pros: Ive been doing I.P. camera installs for years, and if your using Foscam PTZs {or similar type} 5volt , these things are AWSOME! they are very LOW HEAT, and the "splitter" end is small enough to fit in a 4x4x2 box,and still have room to put the wires and plug from your camera in=) Perfect! They hold up very well too. {ive never had one fail }

Cons: the tip that comes with the "SPLITTER "end , doesnt fit ANY I.P. camera ive ever seen. {no biggy tho} Just cut the tip from the power supply that comes with your I.P. CAMERA, and use it instead. wish they made pre-made power tips for different brands of i.p. cameras =)

Overall Review: Ive heard some complain that they dont get much range with these, but i can personally tell you that i have done 500ft + runs with these ,put my meter on it,not lost even 1 millivolt ! =) it comes down to the quality of the Lan cable your using. i recommend SEWELL CAT5E cable. no loss of signal ,even at 1000ft ! {we tested it at our shop just to see if it would work- and it did just fine) if you use CHEAP Lan cable,you get bad signal. the quality of you lan plugs makes a difference as well. {i use "BELKIN R6G088-R-10 RJ45 Plugs"- they hold up, and the "slots" inside that the wires go in ,are divided well -the wires dont "slip" into the other rows -a perfect crimp every time!- that, and they are CLEAR- not "semi-clear,or "frosted clear",like the "cheap stuff"
