Samsung BD-F5700 Wi-Fi Blu Ray DVD Player - HDMI and USB Connections - Apps: Netflix, AccuWeather, YouTube, Twitter, Flicker, Facebook, Pandora, Vudu, CinemaNow, Flingo, and Rhapsody
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's small and contains all the basics. It plays both PAL and NTSC, a perk I didn't know about before I ordered.

Cons: Horrible menu, counter intuitive controls, poor remote layout. Samsung needs to hire some user interface designers pronto. It also froze up a few times, buggy software no doubt.

Other Thoughts: Some con artists sell an "upgraded" version for $200 that supposedly sports physical enhancements allowing it to play PAL and NTSC, as well as all regions. It comes with that ability out of the box; the region free setting requires a key-combo on the remote.

SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 1.5GB Memory 16GB 8.0
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's light weight, thin, and sports a nice bright LCD.

Cons: Sluggish, Samsung bloatware, marginal improvement over Tab 2.

Other Thoughts: Having used an iPad for several weeks and being an early Android-adopter flying the Droid banner proud and strong, I can now see some pros and cons.
Maybe this will help you pick one if you ever face the choice:
-Apple's OS runs faster and more stable thanks to the much reviled "Walled Garden" that is Apple's source code.
Custimization and built-in adaptations make Android run on so many different devices causes drag.
I've been a huge proponent of custimization, but I've come to be very annoyed by the trade-off in speed.
-Android devices are bogged down by the manufacturers' own bloatware, especially Samsung is guilty here.
-Android apps need updating ALL THE TIME. Every time you switch it on, they need to update 3-6 apps.
(if you leave it off for a few days, it practically needs 15 min to update everything)
-Apple has facetime and ITunes, but can also run competing services (Skype, Rhapsody, etc). You can't have it all on Android.
-A pro for Android is that it's OS allows for multiple user profiles if it's a shared device.
-Many of Android's apps are free, Apple has more fee-based apps.
-Android tablets are a lot lighter as they're made of plastic vs the iPad's glass and metal (but you may prefer the look and feel)
-Apple charges a premium for it's brandname. Thank their marketing department for this one. Still, getting a refurb might save you 40% here.
The glass & aluminum body may appear more expensive, that doesn't mean it's more expensive to manufacture.

A1085447A / XL-2200 / A1060818A RPTV Lamp & Housing for Sony TVs - 180 Day Warranty! Television Lamps
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs One year later its still going strong 09/15/2014

This review is from: A1085447A / XL-2200 / A1060818A RPTV Lamp & Housing for Sony TVs - 180 Day Warranty! Television Lamps

Pros: It has lasted a year without issue and is only 1/10th the cost of an OEM lamp.

Cons: None that I can think of. At this price, I'd be okay with them just lasting a year.

Other Thoughts: Keep making them!
