This review is from: Logitech H600 USB Connector Supra-aural Wireless Headset
Pros: Sound quality is fine. Not like high end audio ones, but quite good for a headset.
Cons: After three days the dongle was no longer recognized by any of my several linux and Windows computers. Once I fugured out how to pair the headset to a bluetooth dongle, I was back in business. Note: Hold mic mute and up volume buttons down until light flashes quickly to start pairing.
Other Thoughts: I was surprised when the receiver died, but the AZIO bluetooth dongle I am now using has better range. I can now walk anywhere in my three bedroom house and listen to music or chat. As to comfort, I have worn less comfortable ones. I consider these good for smaller heads as there is a strong headband. That same headband does a good job of insuring they do not fall off during normal movements.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Unit was like new, I could hardly tell it had been used. It had a couple of tiny dings in the bottom cover, but I love the way it looks.
Cons: Win7 did not work 100% out of the box. The cursor disappeared and finger gestures would not work amongst several other small details. A system restore from the hidden partition displayed the same symptoms, so I put Win7 Home Premium from the DVD on a USB stick and installed from scratch. After installing minimal drivers from the Dell support page and doing updates, all was right with the world. Note: the N-trig drivers will need to be installed a couple of times to get the touch screen running right.
Other Thoughts: This unit came from the factory with Vista and was refurbished and released with Win7, so I'm not too surprised there were some problems. If you are capable and patient, this is a very nice laptop for the price. Linux (Ubuntu/Fedora) will run fine also, but you will have to give up gestures and the disappearing onscreen keyboard. I deducted the egg because of the extra work needed to get it working 100%.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-737HRE N300 High Power Easy-N-Range Extender
Pros: TRENDnet support made an excellent effort to help me with my connection problem. I received a follow up phone call from upper tier support that worked with me to make the modem/router setting changes needed to connect smoothly to their TEW-737HRE adapter. The second adapter is now up and running as per expectations.
Cons: I use a Pace4111N modem/router supplied by ATT that apparently does not play well with the TRENDnet adapter. It required going into the router wireless settings and changing the "Authentication Type" in the wireless settings from Auto to WPA2-PSK (AES) by itself. Once changed and applied, the adapter connected. (When we were able to connect to an unprotected network with no problem the support tech turned the attention to the Pace modem.)
Other Thoughts: The reason for the 4 eggs instead of 5, was because of the necessary time spent trying to resolve the problem. I believe the problem was with the Pace modem and not the adapter. The techies I talked to at TRENDnet were very knowledgeable and courteous in walking me through to a solution. Kudos to TRENDnet support.READ FULL REVIEW
