This review is from: Cuisinart WM-SW2 Sandwich Grill
Pros: It's compact - about the size of your standard waffle cooker.
Cons: This sandwich grill is small, it barely fits two sandwiches side by side. The biggest disappointment was that the grill would not take anything more than a single slice of cheese and even then the resulting product would be smashed flat.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: Giving this 4 stars because of it's performance so far. The signal is not as strong as other reviews indicate - my old Linksys WRT gave me more bars, but the gigabit wired connection is great.
Cons: Had to call D-link support for assistance with a MAC address issue. After waiting on hold for 10 minutes someone came on and asked me to repeat every other word I said (I enunciate well, and speak clearly). This "tech" unfortunately did not know what Unix was, nor was he aware of what a MAC address is. I was transferred to level 2 support, where the call was promptly dropped after being placed on hold another 5 minutes.
Other Thoughts: Cheap support isn't always better, D-Link. Consider hiring some of the same people that buy and use your products to support and service them. Goodness knows we need the jobs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Garmin Nuvi 255W 4.3" GPS Navigation with Text to Speech
Pros: The 4.3" screen is nice, as are the three kinds of views offered. The unit synchs quickly and the map & streets look great.
Cons: The address search sucks. First, the order of address entry is backwards - first city, then street number, then street address. The street should be second, especially in light of my second complaint.
My 2-year old Mio GPS accepted a zip code instead of the city name. Even with 2-year old map, I never had a problem with the Mio not locating a street.
The 255w will not accept a zip code - just the city name. This has caused frustration when the street I enter is actually under a different "city name" than what I expect. Bad in metro areas with lots of local city names.
So what happens is you have to enter the (possibly wrong) city name, then type in the street number, and finally the street address. Only to find that the street does not exist in the city you entered. So you have to go back and guess at the correct suburb name and enter the street number, then name.
No 'total mileage' available on the display. It just lists the mileage to the next
Other Thoughts: Overall it's a nice appearing unit, but I am very disappointed with the address search process, and lack of a 'total mileage left' reading on the main display.READ FULL REVIEW
