This review is from: NUANCE Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 Premium
Pros: The technology itself is rather amazing.
Cons: The user interface/ergonomics is still rather awkward and tedious, requiring "tuning" upfront. Software is at times not responsive enough, adding to frustration.
The rebate process is definitely flawed, compared with many of the other vendors. NewEgg is the only site where I would trust their rebate offers, and I have never been disappointed. But with Nuance, it took 5 months and two telephone follow-ups, so my advice is DO NOT GIVE UP!
Other Thoughts: I am very comfortable with typing, so this software is more of a curiosity for me. I don't use it often, but it occurs to me that it can be used as an educational tool for the spoken language.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Obihai OBi200 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP
Pros: Easy to set up, works right out of the box. I was up and running in literally minutes. Website www.obitalk.com leads you straight through setting up Google Voice. I can now use my Google Voice service from a regular handset.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I have been eyeing the OBi device for a while. Caught it at a good price, and just to play it safe, posted a question whether it works with Google Voice. Got a number of replies right away, some of which gave me pause - about Google Voice no longer supported. But then, a couple of nice folks confirmed that they are still getting Google Voice on it. So I took the plunge. Received the device today, (Thanks NewEgg for your usual prompt delivery) and set mine up in no time at all. (Very grateful to the user community for answering my question right away. Just wonderful!) Goodbye to those bloodsucking telcom oligopolies.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA2010KIT AV200 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 200Mbps
Pros: Just plug it in, seems to be working fine. I did not bother to test or measure the "bandwidth", as I don't have demanding requirements, other than connectivity.
Cons: None, so far.READ FULL REVIEW
