So I managed to get my hands on a cheap $20 action cam from Amazon. This is the identical internal hardware for those “1080p” action cams that go for anywhere from $15-$20 on eBay. I thought I was buying a slightly better cheap action camera and this was a good deal – but the listing was misleading and I ended up with a piece of garbage. Skip to 2:00 in the video if you just want to see samples.
Overall I really like this little camera. It’s got decent video quality for the price and some nice mounting hardware.
Summary The SooCoo C30 represents one of the best cost versus performance ratios currently available on the market and has excellent value. I would recommend it to those who want a cheap action cam as it has all the necessary features: a Sony sensor, decent still images, smooth 1080p60 and a gyro stabiliser. My only complaints surround the user interface and a little problem with the colour in direct sunlight. Overall, though this camera is not perfect, it is a great deal.

The TL-WDR3500 is one of the least expensive dual-band routers, but it doesn’t sacrifice on speed. The 2.4ghz range is fantastic, but the 5ghz range leaves something to be desired. That being said, this router is perfect for small apartments and has never bogged down even with 10+ devices connected at once. In the month I’ve owned the WDR3500, this router has performed admirably without fail for wired, wireless and USB connections. I would highly recommend it for smaller apartments or when 5ghz range is not a necessity.
I’ve drawn with a half dozen graphics tablets and I can say the Huion H610 is among the better I’ve used. The pen pressure works great, with decent weight variation. The tablet has a modestly rough texture to it, not exactly like drawing on paper but not smooth either. It reminds me of drawing on my old Wacom Intuos 2 in terms of handling – and that’s a good thing. The only parts that were difficult was the driver install.
This is a firmware test with the new Git2 firmware. Hopefully it fixes the colour balance problems I have experienced!
The GGMM M3 is a head-turner, with beautiful design and great sound to match. The bass is deep, the mids are warm and the treble is clear. This speaker is best for those who like heavy bass but don’t want to compromise on tonal range. The Bluetooth and line-in work great, but the wi-fi could use some refinement. The Android app is very limited and the only way to play audio from an Android phone. The app can’t even play FLAC files. On a computer the Wi-Fi works better. After installing the Windows program the speaker showed up as an audio device as if it was plugged straight in and would play audio from any program. There is some lag, though so it wouldn’t be ideal for watching TV or movies. Overall, this speaker looks and sounds fantastic, but be prepared to use it primarily with line-in and Bluetooth, at least until there are some improvements in the Wi-Fi app.
Not to be confused with Aukey (although I am sure Aokey would love you to be confused). The Aokey 10W Bluetooth speaker is a cheap little device – and its cheapness shows.
In terms of build and performance, the RavPower jump starter does the job. It charges phones, shines a bright light and jump starts vehicles. Jump starters are useful things to have for the peace of mind and the RavPower is a good option. I just wish it came with a hard case.
There’s a lot to like about this camera, but because of the issue getting the app to work I had to ding it a star. Since the camera works otherwise for local recording and through Firefox on a desktop, I gave it a 4, but if Foscam fixed the app it would be a 4.5 at least – maybe even a 5. compatibility is key here and this is something that could be pretty easily fixed in the future.
