Pros: Its very attractive, and the screen, while not terribly high resolution, looks pretty decent. We use it as a remote control for a chromecast (picked it up for just over 50 dollars) and its very responsive, and connects well with everything we use.
The screen is pretty nice when it concerns reading, especially in landscape mode.
Cons: The battery life on this thing is pretty unimpressive. It's a daily charge kind of thing, and I've had it run out of battery while sitting with the screen off doing nothing.
Other Thoughts: The buttons are a bit awkward, but I'm willing to live with it. Since its basically a Chromecast controller with Google Books for reading, it doesn't have to do anything graphics intensive, but it does have a nice responsive interface.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Strong cables, good rubber, and a very comfortable fit make them ideal for running. They also can be comfortably looped over the ears to get them to stay on while running, and I haven't noticed any problems from sweat.
Cons: The sound quality is bearable, but not much better. Music sounds pretty bad, and voice from audiobooks or lectures is scratchy and hard to understand, especially if the recording quality was only marginal to begin with.
Other Thoughts: They're great for sports, but terrible for listening. I pretty much only use these if I'm going running or something now, and have other headphones for everything else. Overall I was a little disappointed, but when I got them they were on sale for 20 bucks, and had a 20 dollar MIR, so for a free pair of headphones I have to say the hassle was worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR XAVB2501-100NAS Powerline AV+ 200 Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps
Pros: These power line adapters are extremely easy to set up and so far have worked well. Saved me from having to run CAT5 cable across the length of my entire house. Also, they are great if one wireless access point won't cover your whole house from where you have to put it.
Cons: When setting up, I ran into an issue where they connected, but then once network traffic picked up they dropped off all of a sudden. I've only seen this problem once and it was right after setup, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Other Thoughts: I took off one egg because they are only compatible with a few of netgear's power line adapters, which might not really be the products fault, but again, it seemed worth mentioning. I bought a second type of adapter that acted as a 4 port hub, but it can't see either of the one port devices. This means you have to have a separate hub if you want to connect more than one device up to these wall adapters.READ FULL REVIEW
