Sony PlayStation Vita 3G/WiFi Handheld Gaming System
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Great addition to PS4!! 12/09/2013

This review is from: Sony PlayStation Vita 3G/WiFi Handheld Gaming System

Pros: Great looking display

Controls work very well

Remote Play on PS4 is awesome, you can play your PS4 away from home (as long as you have an internet connection)

Good choice of games

Ok battery life for constant gaming. The graphics are better on this system than others while for instance the Nintendo 3DSXL has better battery life.

Cons: May leave adult hands a little cramped after a few hours of playing

Battery life isn't bad but could be better

No SMS (text messaging)

No storage card (why I took an egg off) so you cannot install any games until you get one.

Remote play for the PS4 does require some networking knowledge or some googling to get working properly.

Other Thoughts: I plan to use this just for remote play more than anything.

It works great on the same network as the PS4. You can use it to remotely play or as a controller (similar to the wii u) There is little to setup if you plan to only use it in your home.

To use Remote Play over the internet, you need to give your PS4 a Static IP, you can then either use port forwarding, or in my case you can put your PS4 in a DMZ (Your router may or may not have this function).

DMZ is usually on the more expensive routers ($70 and up).

Once you have the setup correct, you'll be very impressed with how well it works. I

**It is important to note when connecting to your PS4 over the internet with your PS Vita, it does need a reasonable amount of bandwidth. I haven't tested it at Panera for instance but it may be a bit tougher to play there.

I would imagine 768k or .76Mbps download when remotely connecting is not fast enough.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra LTE C6806 Black 3G 4G LTE Quad-Core 2.2GHz Unlocked Cell Phone

4 out of 5 eggs Great Phone! Awesome Display! 11/20/2013

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z Ultra LTE C6806 Black 3G 4G LTE Quad-Core 2.2GHz Unlocked Cell Phone

Pros: Large Display 1080p is great to have on a phone :)

Decent Battery Life

I personally like the de-cluttered UI

Quality built phone

Very thin and light for its size

Durable, especially for minor drops, the frame is actual aluminum and is a bit more resistant to damage than plastic

Very fast, everything is super smooth.

Waterproof to a few feet

This is definitely a unique phone to have if it fits your tastes

Cons: No real one handed comfort. There is a one handed keyboard but it is almost impossible to hold other than for carrying one handedly.

Sound is not great, most likely due to its thinness and water tight characteristics. It is passible at best.

No flash although its unlikely you'll be taking many pictures with this device.

***For AT&T users***
This is the only reason I knocked an egg. It lists AT&T support on here which it does have but you have to do some foot work to get LTE enabled on this device. A SIM card from a previous Android LTE device is needed or a good Android LTE IMEI number for activation. The IMEI on this device will NOT allow connectivity on AT&T's LTE network, only standard data (3g).

Other Thoughts: Not exactly a Con but you do have to get used to having a huge phone. I can fit this in my back pocket but it is scary sitting down. It tends to lay flat when you're sitting if its half out of your pocket.

Sony's anti-shatter film that is on the screen is a fingerprint magnet. You can attempt to remove them and install a glass screen protector that will help eliminate the issue. I don't care too much so I wouldn't call it a real issue.

It is somewhat slippery so you have be a little careful holding it.

StarTech USB2DVIE2 USB DVI External Dual or Multi Monitor Video Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to use & Install

Now with Windows 8 Support from the website

Very good customer support

Product itself is well built

Cons: Maximum supported size is 1680 x 1050, it would have been nice for 1080P support which is found on the more expensive USB 3.0 version

Other Thoughts: These are not for display video or moving scenes, expect flickering or tearing.
