This review is from: Hamilton Beach 67650 Big Mouth Pro Juice Extractor
Pros: Great juicer, powerful, minimal foam, juices anything.
Cons: Cheap motor, had one which lasted a year. Replaced with another, which died in less than 2 weeks. Warranty service is a joke, wanted me to pay for shipping and had to wait 10 "business days" to process. I have had products from other major brands that became defective and never had issues with warranty replacement including Bunn and Kitchen Aid. I only wish they made juicers.
Other Thoughts: Buyer beware, its a cheap price for a juicer, but you are getting what you pay for. I had bought another as a gift, but will now be promptly returning because dealing with this company was that painful. I will never buy another Hamilton Beach product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Adesso ARC-1100 MCE Infrared Remote Control
Pros: Works flawlessly with WMC, nothing to install. Has a mouse pad, which is great for those times you need to minimize or do something outside of the WMC interface. Buttons can be re-programmed (using the free LM Remote software).
Other Thoughts: I have gone through several different Logitech universal remotes, and looked into several others, but all seem to miss the mouse control pad. Even with Logitech's new Harmony remote... they still have no mouse support. This simple, extremely easy to use control is a must have for any HTPC. I use it primarily with WMC, but also with JRiver Media Center. I actually bought 3 more once I saw how great this works. I still am waiting for a universal remote with mouse support, but since that will likely never happen, this is the next best thing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great HD tuner
May be networked
Cons: Only compatible with WMC
Can only connect one unit per PC
Other Thoughts: Of all the tuner cards I've tried (HDTV Wonder, WinTV dual tuner, Fusion HDTV, Hauppauge HD PVR), this is the ONLY one that actually works consistently and in HD. Having said that, I should note their support is sub-par and pretty much worthless. I was told when purchased (about 6 months ago) two of these devices could be connected to a single PC. It took at least a month to setup; their support played email tag with me for weeks (they have no support phone number); I somehow managed to get them both to work on my own. I recently had to disrupt my network, and when I reconnected, the devices again, would not work together. Support again played email tag for a week, RMA'd my devices (there was nothing wrong with them), and left me waiting for them to fix (been over 4 weeks now). They claim my setup is "difficult" (I have a modem, router, and PC... ooh thats unusual). I now have moved the second unit to another PC. Overall, this is an awesome product and has gotten me to love WMC (when combined with J River); you have 4 tuners in the device using a single multi-CableCard. There is NO stutter and quick channel change response time. There are restrictions on sharing recorded, premium content (HBO, Cinemax, etc), as this is only viewable on the PC which recorded those shows (this is a Digital Rights Management restriction, not Ceton), but all other channel shows can be played on any PC (or phone). I use one device for my server to record shows, and on the other device I use Ceton's Network Tuner software which allows me to distribute its 4 tuners to PCs throughout my house (you assign a tuner to a PC and it can only be used with that PC, until you reset the device).READ FULL REVIEW
