This review is from: NETGEAR NTV200-100NAS NeoTV Streaming Player
Pros: Small - HDMI - Wireless n - seems like a good menu setup
Cons: No Sound and the help from Netgear was totally underwhelming - you basically have to register the product to recieve *any* kind of help. And then - unable to help to to technical difficulties - try again later.
Other Thoughts: If this thing works - It seems better than using a wii or other devices i have tried to watch netflix ... If it works - so far no sound.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cuisinart DBM-8 Stainless Steel Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill
Pros: I roast my own coffee for the great flavour and price. I felt i was lettijng the coffee down with a blade grinder, and saw this burr grinder for a good price. It has turned out just fine. I roast enough coffee every day for a 12 cup pot, and the hopper is big enough to always be ahead by 1 pot. More later. The grind, for my purposes, is perfect and once i set it i leave it alone to get the right amount and grind.
Cons: As many have pointed out, it is loud! I sort of expected it to be loud, since it is grinding coffee. That being said, i don't believe my ears have been damaged...
The slider switch for the amount is sensitive to being jostled, and may cause an incorrect amount to be ground.
Other Thoughts: Someone said, in their review that you shouldn't sump roasted coffee in the hopper because it should be kept in an air tight container. Even if this were true, it is already too late. The container in the store where you buy your beans is certainly not air tight. Beans should be ground within 12 hours-12days after roasting. They need to outgas some CO2. After around 12 days, the flavour and aroma start to deteriorate.
By self roasting I am not trying to be a "coffee snob" but rather to have the best coffee in the world for around $6 a pound.
This review is from: Logitech M505 910-001321 Black 3 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Mouse
Pros: I got this mouse to work with my much loved Logitech K750 solar keyboard. Both use the tiny universal USB dongle to connect to the computer. It works exactly as advertised, after an easy set up.
This mouse was purchased refurbished, which may explain the complete lack of software shipped with it. To Logitech's credit, it was easy to dl the software needed.
This little mouse survived the New Egg shipping ordeal (second mouse i have bought from New Egg and had them shipped naked in bubble pack envelopes - come on...).
Did I mention that the mouse is small? Somewhere between a regular mouse and a laptop mouse. I have been using a fairly large mouse for some time, and wondered if I could make the switch... No problem. The mouse is so smooth i hardly touch it when moving!
Cons: Could be too small for some users?
Other Thoughts: This mouse filled my needs without breaking the bank.READ FULL REVIEW
