This review is from: BlueAnt Q1 Bluetooth Headset Bulk Package
Pros: Price and features. I LOVE the BlueAnt headsets. The voice prompts and voice commands are a really nice feature. This one will pair with 2 phones. Really necessary for folks with work and personal phones. If you can get a good fit, the sound is superb.
Cons: The 2 I received should have been advertised as refurbished. The appearance was perfectly acceptable until after a week's use, the ear nub that holds the rubber fitting broke off. Upon closer inspection, it was apparently glued on as if repaired. The other show the same evidence, but it has not broken yet. Mine arrived only with the largest rubber ear fitting. I prefer the medium sized one.
Other Thoughts: I was disappointed that it appears to have been previously owned, broken and repaired.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG N4B1N Diskless System 4 Bay Super Multi NAS with Built-in Blu-ray Rewriter
Pros: After a couple of months ownership and use my fondness has grown. I'm using it in a RAID 5 configuration. The bios update went fine as has everything else. I started with 4 500GB drives that were re-purposed from two cheap, usb boxes. Two matching WD, 1 Samsung and 1 Maxtor. The Maxtor was SATA1 so it works fine with mixed drives (at least this combination). I bought 4 seagate 1.5TB drives and proceeded to replace them one by one, letting the RAID rebuild after each replacement. It took a whole weekend, but again, it went flawlessly. The iTunes server presents a long list of my music to any iTunes client I point at it. The web interface is simple and understandable. I set up accounts for all the family and mapped drives for pictures, movies and shared space that reconnect automatically from the windows PCs. It also serves up movies to the WD Live box. The DDNS offering from lg is a nice feature.
Cons: I didn't pick up another one when they offered the bundle. I lost connection to the shared drive while working on an assignment. It came back up after a few moments and I can't say for certain what caused the problem. He re-purposed drives were perfectly silent, but with the seagates I hear it startup pretty loudly. Obviously not the NAS, but the drives.
Other Thoughts: I should have gotten a second one.READ FULL REVIEW
