TOSHIBA Blu-ray Player BDX2150
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Thank goodness it's discontinued 08/16/2012

This review is from: TOSHIBA Blu-ray Player BDX2150

Pros: I got 7 1/2 months use out of it.

Cons: Remote died before 8 months were up, which renders the unit inoperable. (You have to be able to press OK to select Play, etc. in menu.)

The Toshiba solution is to buy a new remote. Seems logical, but I tried a universal remote - nothing. I suspect that the sensor on the unit has burned out and that getting a new remote will put more money in the company's pockets.

Other Thoughts: If you want to read something shocking, go to the company's website and look at the customer reviews there for this unit. Absolutely terrible! I wish I had seen them last January.

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Speedy, physical install is very easy. SSDs are the way to go

Cons: I loved this until this morning when it died. My other gripe is that the Mushkin site didn't have easily accessible instructions for switching to SSD. There are enough good guides online to make it do-able, but still.

Other Thoughts: Back up your drives regularly. Wish I were able to give this more eggs, I liked it that much.

SAMSUNG SMX-F50BN Black 1/6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great zoom; small; great price. I got this to replace a FlipCam and it did - and it didn't.

Cons: No image stabilization - this is critical. It turns out that FlipCam has advantages over other hand-held cameras.

Understand that you need a memory card (sold separately).

Not as pocket-friendly as a FlipCam.

Other Thoughts: You need to be aware that this camera is virtually worthless without a tripod. My FlipCam use misled me into believing that shaky recordings really weren't a problem for hand-helds. Wrong! This Samsung catches the slightest vibration and the subsequent videos are painful to watch. With a tripod, this camera works nicely, though.

FlipCams are great, but I didn't like the lack of a zoom. The Samsung's 52X is just what I was looking for. Luckily, I didn't want this for candid shots; I'm able to arrange the tripod and set up the shots I want, which isn't such a bad thing.

Overall, buying this was a learning experience. I now know that you have to pay for image stabilization and optics. Nonetheless, for the price this is worth it - as long as you understand what you're buying.
