This review is from: Samsung VG-KBD2000 Smart TV Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard
Pros: Looks good. Nice idea.
Cons: Doesn't work reliably or consistently.
Other Thoughts: I don't know if I got a dud, or all of them like that. But keyboard I got in 2015 was made in 2012. It paired with TV initially, but was stopping streaming videos intermittently. Then it started to pop up a menu in the middle of watching tv. Mouse was working and not working. And finally it unpaired itself and stopped working all together. The bad part is that my native remote doesn't work now either. I don't know if this is because of the keyboard or not, but suspect it is. Bluetooth in my brand new $2500 TV is dead now!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Netgear A6210-100PAS AC1200 Wi-Fi USB Adapter High Gain Dual Band USB 3.0
Pros: Works great when configured correctly. Not overly expensive.
Cons: Large, needs antenna thing plate fully extended to realize full bandwidth. But that just might be my topology. Software comes on CD.. c'mon Netgear, it's 21st Century. 1 gig stick is $.99 now.
Bundled network software is a joke.
Other Thoughts: I wanted to hate it initially since it gave me some grief, but with some massaging works fine. So 4 eggs for the grief thing....
When I initially installed software, I chose "drivers only". The moment this thing became aware of the world, It popped up "new version available" message. I thought, great!... and it installed the Ginny thing.
Average speed 13 Mbps on my 50meg FIOS. Plus disconnect and reconnect every 5 - 10 minutes.... and upgrade removed all cached data, so I had to enter password again. I work remotely an d needless to say was a bit disappointed since my office VPN dropped every time connection was reset. So I got enough, uninstalled an "update" along with Ginny and installed original driver. Now connection speed is 57meg and no disconnects so far.
Netgear, if you reading this, please fix an update and please include option to not to install bundled software. It's useless.
Pros: Compact, low power consumption, comes with CPU already attached.
Cons: Slow, HD video virtually non existent even on 18" screen.
Other Thoughts: I bought the board for HTPC use, but when connected to TV via HDMI HD stream just hangs. On smaller monitor I can play HD, but it's constantly buffering and "choppy". Even web surfing is slow. I regret buying this board, it's good for nothing.READ FULL REVIEW
