For graphics and performance, PC - but you need a controller as the PC controls are awful.

Got my AT9947CM this morning. Can't wait to test it out.

I usually salvage them from old routers, etc as they're usually 2.1mm jacks and 12V 2A units :)

Yeelight strip is more expensive - it's better in some aspects, worse in others. Best part of Yeelight is LAN control for things like Home...

Should be fine but as its up to 5A so 1A is fine. But it's pointless getting this if you're hooking it up with that sort of IR detector as...

If you're handy with a soldering iron or use waterproof connectors, you can join them but you'll probably hit the power limit of the power...

I've got mine behind my desk as ambient lighting. Also, planning on putting a set under my kitchen cabinets for work lighting.

Ordered via eBay at 7am but nothing aside from the "Your Order is Processing" automated email. Can guarantee it won't be fulfilled - now...

Probably because 1) They're clearly buying to profiteer rather than actually use it and 2) Buying in these volumes means others will miss...

I get around 10 hours of usage on mine. I really love it as its perfect to take outside during parties.

I really like Luminar 3 and get some really nice results out of it. Main issue I've found is that the chromatic abberation and denoising is...

Had a different issue but same treatment from LIFX. Stated consumer law and they just said too bad. Followed up with letter from Consumer...

Not yet. It's on my todo list.

Thanks OP. Bought on the recommendation here and was engrossed for 3 hours and loved every minute. Reminds me a lot of Tombi or Swordigo.

I've got one and it supports ONVIF so if your NVR can take an ONVIF feed, you should be ok.

I'd say the TP-Link is better. That one's from an unknown (with potentially no Australian Safety certification), only a 1 year warranty vs...

Lenovo also have a compact one from memory (also running on Tuya as far as I can tell).
30/12/2019 - 11:57
Nope. Runs on their own infrastructure. That said, they're far better plugs than the Tuya ones (but very bulky)
30/12/2019 - 11:43
Never had any of mine drop power. Out of all my smart plugs, my TP-Link ones are the most reliable.

LIFX are much better in terms of brightness, particularly with colors and the app is far better. That said, they're significantly dearer.

I agreed. Paid only $30 more for my flights with JAL and it's direct. It'd have to be a substantial saving for me to take a stopover

I'd say it's good at the telephoto range as I've got some fantastic shots this way. However, there's not much at 18mm.

Not if you test dozens of devices like I do :p Frustrating that scores aren't comparible across v4 and v5 though.
05/09/2019 - 13:40
I've done the same. Saves me forgetting to turn it off and running it dry for hours.

How have you found the Sigma without stabilisation? Keen to pick it up for my A6400 but a little concerned about shake.

This is my go-to all rounder for my Sony APSC cameras. Has been a very useful focal length range (particularly when travelling) and the F4...

I'm getting around 8-10 hours with general web browsing so not too bad.

It's a matte screen and fairly sure its 250 nits from memory.
