-Live game streaming is awesome
-Share button is seamless with Facebook (only one I tested)
-Always on DVR for gaming
Cons: - Not compatible with 3D Blu-ray (yet)
- Not compatible with home networking (DLNA) (yet)
- Blu-ray drive is a bit loud when reading disk in beginning (at least mine is)
Other Thoughts: I wanted to wait a few weeks so I could thoroughly test out the new PS4 before writing a review. Please understand that this review comes from a PC gamer perspective. I side with neither XBOX or PS.
The whole reason I love PC gaming so much is because of the graphics and ability to play games at 1080P @ 60fps+. Finally, consoles have cought up, sort of. I've been playing Assassins Creed BF and can noticeably tell the graphics engine is better on this new system. There's a lot more detail in the background with a larger field of view than the previous generation.
Obviously, my PC is my go to for intense gaming but when I want to casually play some games like Assassins Creed on a big screen, it's nice to have the PS4. The HUGE gap in graphics between consoles and PC has greatly reduced but there's still a gap.
The controller for the PS4 is so much better that I don't even want to compare it to the PS3. You just have to hold it to understand.
I'm loving the share and live stream options. I even like watching other random players across the country play. This is one feature that sets the console apart from PC. Sure you can live stream on PC and capture video (both of which I do), but the PS4 makes it so easy and user friendly.
The one thing that surprised me was when I popped in a 3D blu-ray movie only to find out that it's not supported yet. I mean, that's crazy sony. Why would you remove or neglect such a feature when you're the one pushing for Blu-ray and 3D movies through your movie studio. How do you release a console with less features than the previous generation. I know these are going to be updated in upcoming patches but the fact you launched without these simple features is beyond me.
Pros: Despite other reviews, I found the setup to be easy. It worked after following the instructions which didn't take too long at all.
Cons: The connection is good but it randomly disconnects or has issues receiving transmission.
Other Thoughts: I'd love to rate this 5 eggs because when it's working, it works very well. The problem I have come across is that it will randomly cycle out and not be connected. It corrects itself but it happens almost every hour. There are 3 lights up on the top. The one that shows internet signal status will change from green (good strength) to orange (connecting/poor strength) to red (bad connection/strength). It's like a heartbeat every hour where it goes from green to red to orange back to green. Can't rate it well because it's not really functional if you want to use the internet for more than an hour.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: YAMAHA YBA-11 Bluetooth Wireless Audio Receiver
-Easy to set up
-Long range connection
Cons: -non, has worked perfectly as advertised
Other Thoughts: Bought this for my YAMAHA AV receiver so I could stream music from my phone (Note 3). It was very easy to set up and connected to my phone effortlessly. I was surprised to find that the range of the connection (once connected) held on from long ranges. I have a 1900 sq/ft house with my bedroom on the other end, down a hallway. The connection stayed, even from that distance with many walls between.READ FULL REVIEW
