Overall, this was a delight to use, and very well placed for the SOHO and small/medium business market. Larger businesses may want to skip this and invest in the top-line hardware and specialist software, but anyone else will find a set of 4-6 of these more than sufficient to cover the external facings of any moderate building. The price tag is well within the budget for even a home user simply wanting something to keep an eye on the car, boat or approaches to the front door or garage, and for the sake of a couple of holes and some ethernet cable, it gives you peace of mind in all weather. Well worth considering if your needs fall in line with that.
Overall, the price is quite reasonable, though a little on the high side for some people who want a simpler, more affordable device to add to their home security setup. What you get is reflected in what you pay, and while you won't get change from three big red notes, you will get solid peace of mind.
Overall, I was highly impressed by this unit and would recommend it to anyone who wanted to upgrade the kids' laptop or desktop system without blowing the budget and giving in to their demands for a gaming rig that could run a Mars colonisation mission on the side without even breaking a sweat.
It's a good across-the-board handset - Above-average in most areas but top-flight in none. For those seeking their first 'big' phone it's a perfect place to start...
The concept of Synergy - where the resulting combination is somehow more than just the sum of its parts - applies beautifully here. Three smaller units, working in harmony at a distance from each other, creates a result that far exceeds expectations. What excites me more is that this is a scalable solution...
Overall, without the need to sing the same praises I heaped upon the MX300, all I can say is that this drive cuts a brilliant balance between value for money and performance.
Overall, I found this phone to be quite acceptable, if not as spectacular and ground-breaking as some hype would have you think. That said, the price tag on it brings it well into the "stunningly good value" range with features you could rightly expect in a phone twice the price.
