    Can anyone suggest some to check out? As it seems the CF31 factory camera is pretty lame, USB external cameras are the way to go! Been a very long time since I investigated cameras of any sort for a computer.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Since whois shows the creation date for that website being July 08, 2018 (the same date of DigitZoom's original post with link to that site), I would also like to see if anyone can vouch for that site. If legit, I wouldn't mind trying it, but that creation date for site makes me nervous.

    DigitZoom's post is last one.

    Little confused here...DigitZoom made SATA adapter's about 4-5 years ago and there web site is dead. Tecrotech makes the web cam and there web site works. Not sure if they are the same company or not but as you can see they are using digitZoom NBR name ????

    Have you bought from digitzoom in the past? Having a long-known member here vouch for them would make me more likely to try them.

    I have not purchased from Digitzoom. However they did send me a free sample of the SATA adapter to test and report on.
    That product was a quality product that worked very well.

    There is one thing that "bothers" me.
    I checked out the http://www.tecrotech.com/index.php site.
    I could not find any info on a contact phone number or an actual brick and mortar location. That is something I always look for.

    Someone could send Digitzoom a message and see how they respond. Wonder if they have an ebay or amazon presence?
