5 out of 5 eggs Using as a PC Monitor 12/19/2013

This review is from: Samsung 32" Class (31.5" Diag.) 1080p 60Hz LED-LCD Smart TV UN32EH5300

Pros: Bright, great color and works fine as a 32" PC monitor. The wifi and SmartTV features set up easily, though I don't know how much I'll use them. I don't bother with Cable TV. This is a versatile device for me. Sure, I'd like higher resolution than 1920x1080, maybe -- but for $299, this fit my budget and I expect to have it a long time.

Cons: The only con I have is that I have it paired with a 27" Samsung TV/monitor that is almost superfluous and looks a little small but I'll get used to it. And it's a mild inconvenience that the remotes for each control both. That's more of an l-o-l than it is reason to criticize.

Other Thoughts: If you use it as a monitor, make sure to change the source to PC. From reading around about this pre-purchase, some folks didn't know to do this.

I'd be tempted to get another if they come back in stock. I do not think I'd want to go bigger than 32" at 1920x1080, though -- this is pushing it.

Rosewill RX-DUS100 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've bought two of these, one for myself and one for a system build for a friend/client. Pros -- Both worked fine out of the box for me, with eSATA, on Win 7 64-bit.

Cons: My friend's unit is still running fine after more than a year. Mine, however, died recently. Same issue that some others have had -- it won't power on any more. Push the power button and hold it, you get lights ... but no action. And let go of the button and it doesn't stay on.

Other Thoughts: I don't know what Rosewill's warranty policy is. I was going to order something similar from another manufacturer ... and I saw that the same unit is selling for $24.99 now so figured I'd just order another. If it dies, I'll be back with a "fooled me once, fooled me twice ..." kind of post. ;)

NETGEAR XE104-100NAR Powerline 4-port Ethernet Adapter Up to 85Mbps

4 out of 5 eggs Not bad at all 02/01/2010

This review is from: NETGEAR XE104-100NAR Powerline 4-port Ethernet Adapter Up to 85Mbps

Pros: It works. Indistinguishable from magic. Cheap solution.

Cons: Distance matters and so do other things beyond your control. Worth a try when ethernet or wireless solutions are impractical or non-starters.

Other Thoughts: In shorthand, hoping to help others:

Problem: Big, older home with an addition and a separate garage with office over garage. Three breaker boxes! Cable Internet/router at opposite end of home from breaker boxes/garage/addition. Customer doesn't want outside wire. Customer has made do with very weak and sporadic wireless access in office.

Tried out the powerline solution in many outlets.

In same room as router: Near 100 percent.
Next room over: 90 percent:
Down a flight of stairs: 75 percent
Downstairs two rooms over: 60 percent

Back upstairs in new addition, on another breaker box:

Uh-oh. SPORADIC connection at 5 mb ... seems slower and drops sometimes. Similar in several outlets. One gives no signal at all. Then -- surprise -- 20mbps, consistent ... in bathroom outlet. Not ideal.

Traipse across walkway to office over garage.

Poor signal in every outlet -- except one, eureka! No known reason but we get consistent 10mbps in ONE outlet. Set up access point. Cust
