This review is from: Sonax E-5155-MP Black 32" - 65" Tilting Flat Panel Wall Mount TV Bracket
Pros: Simple. Does the Job. Good Value especially since I bought on Shell Shocker. VESA mounts line up -- nice when standards actually do benefit. Hit three 16" center joists -- good thing they were properly aligned. Samsung 50" LED now on wall
Cons: None really.
No left-right turning, just some up down tilt, but that is all I wanted and as advertised, so no eggs off
Other Thoughts: So close to wall not a lot of room for hands to tighten tilt adjustment knobs. Had to swap one HDMI w big moulded ends for a more standard one (thus preserving one sideways port for later use). Would hold up TV + my couch with 6 big lag screws in studs. Used to say good to 50" TV now says 65" -- New LED TVs are lighter than couple of years ago -- check spacing and width if you have a TV over 50"READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Integrates with my Set Top Box and Windows MCE
Can access my cable company guide AND the Media Center Guide both.
Blaster runs my Motorola DCX 700-M unit -- old TV tuner card controller would not work w MCE. Can use keyboard or this remote to run STB.
Cons: none yet except the DCX700 needs a pretty slow IR signal so could be faster channel changes... Didn't get fairly common shell shocker or other discount price.
Other Thoughts: Had an analog tuner card but went to HD TV in other room and wanted access to all the channels I was paying for. Instead of $20/month for Cable PVR, I bought this and use it to run a $9.95/month second set top box. Use S-video in to my old TV tuner card in PC and record decent (not full HD) quality of air TV May upgrade to HD input device when a decent one becomes affordable. Samsung TV came w streaming software for my PC so can do full PVR stuff now.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cuisinart EM-100IHR Espresso Maker Silver
Pros: Bought one refurbed 2 years ago, still making great espresso. My wife gets lots of real steam for great Cappuccinos although I stick to coffee. Nice crema. Does the 15 Bar thing vs some low cost units. Simple controls (switch + manual valve) don't break.
Cons: Not quiet, but only takes about 2 min to heat up and then make a coffee...
Other Thoughts: You will likely have trouble drinking regular coffee if you get going with a decent espresso machine like this. I am sure some leave it on all morning, but unit heats up fast enough that we turn off after every use -- you don't want to be drinking 6 to 8 cups of espresso a morningREAD FULL REVIEW
