This review is from: LG WiFi Built-in BP330
Pros: Great Blu-Ray picture, plays lots of file formats, doesnt take up much room, very inexpensive
Cons: 1. When using Newegg to compare this to the BP-530, the comparison table says that both are 3D capable. This is an error. It is NOT. Unfortunately, I used this info to make a selection, then bought elsewhere where returns are not an option since they didnt advertise it as 3D. I am very annoyed at Newegg for this error.
2. It will stream content from networked PC's, but you have to install some stupid piece of software from Nero, which will search my disc and create a media server on the computers where my movies are. WHY CAN'T IT JUST READ THE WINDOWS FOLDER STRUCTURE AND LET ME PICK WHAT i WANT TO WATCH THAT WAY. Like my WD-Live box does, and all the other streaming boxes. This is the height of annoying.
3. Its small....way smaller than all of the other standard sized equipment in my rack, which means it has to sit on top of everything and is so lightweight that it can be knocked around easily. This thing is tiny and i doubt it weighs half a pound.,
Other Thoughts: Haven't tried setting up the media server software yet. Very annoyed to have to do that at all. If anybody knows of any hacked firmware or other means to avoid this archaic, idiotic, cumbersome step, please let me know.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Better than WD, good value, relatively quiet, lots of space for the price, goes in like a dream, BUT...
Cons: In the last few months the following stuff happened...
1. One of these drives showed up DOA.
2. Barracuda 500gb that had ALL my OS and business files died...head began to read and write so slow that it took Seagate data recovery four days to image the drive. That cost me a grand to get the data back.
3. When I originally tried to diagnose and fix the drive myself and it was taking six hours to go from 1% to 2% the tech at Seagate told me to send it to them. I later found out that the process I was doing was essentially what they did at Seagate Data Recovery and if I had let it run for four days like they did, I could have repaired the drive myself. Deceit or incompetence?
4. On SATA drives, the data cable plugs onto a small plastic tab and the metal contacts. This tab has broken on two different drives, neither one handled roughly. Why is this open at the bottom so the tab can be so easily snapped off?
Other Thoughts: Seagate is great for customer service but I have zero confidence in their hard drives lately. I have purchased a LOT of Seagate drives and have a closet full of ones that I stopped using because they became obsolete...not because they broke. These problems seem to be recent and I hope they get their act together and start earning their place at the top again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: If you go to the Museum of Modern Art in NYC there is a floor devoted entirely to design featuring innovative and cool stuff from the last 100 years. This keyboard should take its place next to all The Coolest Stuff Ever Created. The charging base is more like a display stand so your tech savvy visitors can ogle this beautiful device. And the main thing for those of us who have suffered through wireless devices that left us frustrated is that THIS KEYBOARD WORKS. The range is awesome and the touchpad controls the cursor with perfect precision. I use it to control my Home Theater PC, which it does perfectly. The keys feel great when pressed, the weight is light, the profile is super slim. It has no keypad, which is GOOD for a mini keyboard meant to control a HTPC. A charge lasts forever. Definitely worth the price, and thats saying something, as it is pricey.
Cons: Pricey, but worth every penny. Also, I would like to be able to detach the palm rest and make it even smaller, but I imagine there are parts in there.
Other Thoughts: I'll say it again...it WORKS. The only keyboard/mouse combo I've seen that does. And looks fabulous while doing so.READ FULL REVIEW
