First of all thanks to Conbrov for sending me this review unit, it arrived in about 6 days leaving the wait at the customs. Conbrov is a brand that has shined in converting general very common house stuff into high tech security maintainers, they have managed to do it with lots of products like a notebook, pictures frames etc. You can see more details on their website. Now coming to the package, the package arrived unharmed through Singapore post intact with yellow tape all around it making it very tedious to open. Some how getting past the tapes you finally reach the inside of the box, well then you get another Dark Grey coloured box with a matte finish, On the front you have the Notebook Camera and its features and on the back you can see the pictures of various use case scenarios that can are possible with this device. While the sides are kept blank
Now, let’s turn towards unboxing the device, inside the box is the plastic white transparent pouch which holds the HD Notebook camera, as soon as I held the book I could the premium finish conbrov has managed to put into it, and then there are all the accessories inside. You get a notebook camera, a micro usb cable, a micro sd card reader, a reset button tool, warranty card, user manual and lastly a red/yellow CCTV sticker, how thoughtful of Conbrov, I really like the extra added stuff, its a cherry on the cake.
After unboxing the device I took an in depth look at it, and I have to say I am impressed by attention they have given to the details here, the Notebook from outside appears to be a very premium hard cover with soft cushion Notebook, and on inside at the center you have the camera and circuit assembled in a rectangular black coloured box. Inorder to add to the authenticity the notebook also has hinges like a file folder which quite strong and has chrome finish and also houses a set of lined paper. So overall even after someone takes a peek inside your notebook they won’t be able to make it as a camera, it’s so well designed. First thing you should do after unboxing this device is to charge the battery as it takes about 20hours for full charge. On the inside there is also an up| down label for you to know what side is up.
